Last month here at Samantha Prewett Photography in Poole, Dorset I photographed the lovely little Erin, little sister to Elliot who has his own blog; Entertaining Elliot!
It is not often that I photograph babies this age, as they are inbetween the "normal" photography ages for newborn and baby photography. Seen as I have a more natural style and I don't have a strict posing style like many other photographers I thought why not! And I am very glad that I did. As you can see here, we managed to get some beautiful shots during our session.
At this age babies are starting to get more interactive and we managed to get the perfect mix of cute little expressions as well as some sleepy shots.
I usually take babies from 6 weeks for "baby" sessions as these last 1 hour , where as a "newborn" session is for around 7 days and lasts between 2-4 hours. This is not to say that I won't take babies in between these ages, as you can see here. If you are interested in having a session when your baby is between these ages we would have a conversation first to see which package would be best.
Erin's session was wrapped up in around 1.5 hours, I am always happy to go on a little more than 1 hour for a baby session if required as I am aware babies are still quite unsettled and needs lots of cuddles,feeding and changing at this age.
Baby photography packages start from just £75. To find out more about baby sessions please visit my baby session page here. Or contact me here.
It has been just over 4 years now since I set up my newborn and family photography business in Poole,Dorset.
Over these few years the way that I present and package my work has changed significantly.
The biggest change has been of me previously providing a CD of digital images to now providing a USB. Over just a couple of years technology has changed so much, that now not everyone has a disc drive on their computer. In fact not everyone has a computer, but a USB can be used on most well know tablets or smart televisions, so I decided this was the best option to go forward with.
You could say I have somewhat gone "backwards" with presentation by providing prints with my standard and top packages. In a digital age, I think we are all starting to realise how important it is to print our photographs off rather than having them stay as just digital files forever. Whilst I realise that most clients do print off their photographs and put them up on their walls, there were always a few people that would just keep the digital files and never get round to doing anything with them. Bearing this in mind, at the beginning of 2016 I started to provide a print of each digital image with my standard and top packages. I do still continue to offer a basic package of a few digital images sent via email as a starting point, but almost everyone that books this package will go on to purchase a book or wall art from me aswell. There are of course exceptions to each situation, but I want to give these options to help keep my photography affordable to most that desire it.
My current packaging, which has evolved over the last 4 years, reflects my brand and natural style. Where possible I use natural and recycled materials, which compliment the natural beautiful photographs that are contained within them. I am always researching new ideas to add to my packaging and it seems to be constantly changing, but only slightly, and always in keeping with my style.
