Milestone Photography Session FAQ's
Where is the session held?
Sessions are held at my home studio in Hove, East Sussex where I have a large selection of set ups, backdrops, props & outfits for your little one to wear.
How far in advance do I need to book?
Ideally all milestone sessions should be booked around a month in advance to allow time for me to plan set ups and outfits.
Who can come to the session?
It’s best if only the people being photographed be at the session. It’s ideal if only the parents are present. The studio is small and it’s best If I am able to connect to the baby/child so I can get shots where they are looking at me and the camera and I can just let their personalities shine.
What should I wear?
I recommend wearing simple black or white tops for your up close shots with your newborns. Again – the image should focus on you and your baby, not what you are wearing.
How long does a session take?
All milestone sessions last between one and two hours.
Do I get to see all the images from our session?
You will notice that for the duration of your whole session, I will try out different set-ups, poses and/or props. However, if I feel that an image does not meet my level of standard I will not include it in your viewing gallery. I normally take a lot of photos during the session to make sure I am capturing the best facial expressions, best angle, etc – but please note that you will only see the best ones.
How do I select my final images and package?
You will be sent an online proofing galley around 2-3 weeks after your session. The gallery is open for 7 days to allow you to select your package and images for printing. Once I have your order the watermark is removed from purchased images. Your downloadable gallery is open for 14 days.
Am I allowed to bring my own props?
Certainly! I am more than happy to incorporate them as long as it fits the theme and my style.
What happens if my child is ill and we have to cancel the appointment?
I understand that sometimes, due to unforeseen circumstances – you may have to re-book your appointment. Please do not try to fulfil the appointment if your child is unwell. We can re-schedule another appointment but the booking fee unfortunately cannot be refunded. It can be re-used for another day granting enough notice has been given.
