Why book Little Primrose Photography?
I am a mum myself and I have had plenty of experience handling and photographing babies. I am a registered member of BANPAS (Baby and Newborn Photographers’ Association) and I work 100% safely under their guidance – your baby’s safety is paramount. I have had newborn training with Jillian Greenhill – World renowned newborn photographer; Tracy Willis (Baby and Child Photographer of the Year 2017) and Cass Davies (Specialist Newborn Photographer). I have recently won awards for my newborn photography with the Photographer’s Guild. I only book one session a day, which allows plenty of time to feed and comfort your baby throughout the shoot. I’m entirely baby-led, they decide the pace of the session. I have had many lovely comments from parents who mention my caring and loving style when working with their little ones. This patience and care is how I create such a varied and beautiful gallery of images.
How long will the shoot take?
Usually between 2-4 hours because we allow time for baby to be settled and comfortable. The shortest newborn shoot I’ve ever done was only 1.5 hours! I completely understand that new Mums and Dads are keen to return to the comfort of their routine and I try to gather images for a complete collection as quickly as possible but you should come to the shoot with the mindset that it will take as long as it takes dependant on how baby is that day.
What if baby won’t settle?
I am a baby-led photographer which means that if baby is awake, we will take some gorgeous awake shots and capture that fantastic eye contact of a nosy baby. When they want to sleep I will allow them to be completely comfortable and relax into natural poses. If in the very rare circumstances baby is ill or completely unsettled then it would be entirely possible to reschedule for a date in the near future when baby will be more at ease.
What poses and props should we expect?
A lot of parents express concern about posing and the possibility of baby being uncomfortable. May I take this time to reassure you that I never pose baby or place them in props when they are not at their most comfortable. This means that I only move baby into poses that they naturally go into themselves and I only do this when they are content and safe. I pride myself on this natural style of newborn photography which shows off your baby in a beautiful, relaxed position artistically posed and decorated with bespoke accessories and props.
What will baby wear?
I have a cute collection of outfits and wraps in a range of colours that baby will wear. If you’d like naked photos to show baby at their most pure and innocent then I will be happy to oblige.
When do I need to book?
Most customers book their session before baby arrives, after their 20 week scan. However, I know life never goes to plan and babies always surprise us! Therefore, I limit how many newborns I take a month so that I can usually accommodate all photo shoots.
What if my baby has already been born?
If your baby has already been born and you feel like you have missed the newborn stage but would still like similar photographs taken of your baby then please get in touch. I have photographed many older babies and this is usually not a problem at all, it just means you might have more awake photos! Sometimes mums prefer to wait a little while until they are more settled in with a new baby before getting photographs taken. I have taken beautiful photographs of babies in a newborn style up to 8 weeks old!
How much will it cost?
What my customers say:
“Lisa, thank you so much for the fabulous photo shoot of our beautiful girls, we’re so pleased with the results, the photos are perfect and that’s coming from a perfectionist designer!! You made us feel totally at ease and I was more than happy to hand over my tiny little bundle to you. Well done…we’ll definitely be back. From Rich, Abi, Hettie & Baby Eadie xx” – Abigail Taylor, April 2017
“Lisa, I just wanted to say a massive thank you got the stunning photos of Stanley. We had a lovely afternoon with you at your studio. Considering this little man is never still and hates being swaddled, not only did you manage to coax him into a ‘baby sock’ but you captured lovely moments of him at peace. Someone once told me that expressions captured on camera are a reflection of how the person being photographed feels about the person behind the camera, he may be little, bu…t Stanley’s relaxed and chilled photos were certainly a reflection of your approach and personality during the shoot. Thank you again, we look forward to booking in for a cake smash in the future! Xxx” – Hannah Ward, March 2017
“We recently had our daughter, Millicent photographed by Lisa in her home studio. She makes the whole experience very relaxed for both parents and baby!
Lisa has a wonderful eye for a great picture and captures the moment wonderfully!
We would definitely recommend her and look forward to future shoots with her!” – Sarah Greenwood, March 2017
