BUMPS AND BABIES PHOTOGRAPHY

It is an absolute joy to be asked to take these photos so Hello & Welcome to the bumps and babies page!

Photographing the start of a new family unit is such a real privilege, helping them to treasure their precious family moments for the future. Whether it’s the last months of pregnancy showing off a gorgeous bump or the adorable little new member of the family – it’s incredibly special. 

The majority of these happy photos have been taken somewhere that is special to the couple or the young family. It might be their front room, or somewhere they go on days out, it might be their back garden, … it is up to them.  I can’t wait to hear what and where you have planned for your session. You can tell me all about it when we meet up either for real or via Skype.

Bump and Baby sessions are great fun and such an incredibly special time. For the Bump session, if possible we’ll arrange it in the seventh month but of course it depends very much on mum-to-be and how she is feeling. For little one we’ll allow lots of time, so if the new arrival needs a feed or a nap it really isn’t a problem. We will aim to get a whole range of photos including some of these – laughter between the two of you, snuggles with baby, those first captivating smiles, quieter tender moments.

Just below the portfolio you can find out all about how a lifestyle shoot works and what beautiful products are on offer.

OMG the pics are amazing.  You have got me doing the waterworks again …. thank you so much for capturing so beautifully our new little family !

C & A

The following portfolio will show you examples of real ‘new’ family photography. You might be thinking that you aren’t that comfortable in front of the camera well believe it or not, most of the parents start the whole process by telling me how “unphotogenic” they are and how we should just concentrate on the baby. I promise we will ease into it gently and by the the time we really get underway you will have forgotten about the camera and just be enjoying the precious time as a family and so there will be gorgeous photos of you all … together!

You might recognise some of the faces from other pages and I think that is the greatest compliment ever. I have been fortunate enough to photograph some of these families for quite a few years now. In fact some of the parents you might even see in the Couples or Weddings pages along with the Family page..

SO HOW DOES IT WORK ?

To keep things really simple and straightforward the price for a Session is broken down into two parts.

Part One is the session fee, which covers the shoot itself. Next Part Two covers the different products available to present your beautiful memories – albums, frames, portfolio box. That way you are free to buy what you love. Simple.

Contact me and together we will work to plan your bump or baby session. You’ll receive a beautiful PDF with advice about what to wear, what times work best light wise, etc. Also tips for having a stress free session with your newest arrival, I promise it will be absolutely fine ! On top of that there’ll be info about what happens before, during and after the shoot. Next we’ll set up a skype meeting so you can tell me what you have planned and see what we can make happen. You can “meet” me to see if we ‘fit’ and you’d like me to photograph your family, and of course go through any questions you may have.

Amazing pictures!!!!!!

We love all of them and colours are great even if the sun was not out! You are such a great photographer

Cheers

PART ONE – THE BUMP OR BABY SESSION FEE – €175

This fee covers :

  • the gorgeous PDFs full of ideas and tips that you will receive from me.
  • the meeting to discuss and organise your session.
  • the duration of the photo shoot itself, approximately 2 hours.
  • the culling and editing of the photos.
  • a selection of 50-60 images to choose from in the on-line gallery.
  • location of your choice within 30 km of Rumilly (74150, France), travel expenses charged for greater distances.

Note : Digital Images and final products are NOT included in the session fee and need to be purchased separately. 

PART TWO – THE BEAUTIFUL PRODUCTS

The second part is entirely up to you because you only buy what you love, simple as that.

After the photoshoot you will have access to a beautiful online gallery so you can make your choices.  It is my job is to supply you with a gorgeous selection of images, BUT remember there is no pressure from me because you aren’t contracted into buying an album, or a frame or anything at all. You could choose to have a single large framed image, or maybe a portfolio box of ten gorgeous mounted photos, or why not a stunning album of 60 images to treasure forever …. or if you don’t like any of the final photos (I really hope that isn’t the case) you can just walk away.

There are lots of different ways to present your favourite images from your shoot. The most popular product is a stunning album printed on layflat photographic paper. But perhaps you would prefer framed images or a image folio box with 10 mounted photos to display around your home. Most of my clients allow for between 900-2500€ for a collection of their favourite images to treasure and display.

Remember you buy what you love and there is no minimum spend or package – it’s simple you choose the images you like and the format you would like them in from the wide range of products available.

Along with the printed product you will receive the high resolution digital (jpeg) version of every image ordered.

I work with fabulous suppliers, all of them specialists in their fields.  This means that your photographs are shown off to their very best whether it be in a gorgeous portrait album, a stylish portfolio box or contemporary frames. Have a look at the photos below to see each style of product in detail. I’m sure you will love them.

Finished off with a matt cover featuring your favourite photo from the session the albums are A4 format (approx 30x21cm).  They are printed on satin finish photographic paper which has a cardboard base to make the pages thick and resistant. If you are looking for a present idea smaller versions which are perfect as a gift for grandparents, are available as an extra with a main album.

Remember that every image in the album is also supplied as a high resolution digital file for you to keep.

LUXURY PORTRAIT ALBUMS

IMAGE PORTFOLIO BOXES

Not quite sure if you want a beautiful album or stylish wall art ? Here is a gorgeous solution for you – The Image Portfolio Box. It allows you to keep the prints together in one place or display them individually around your home, changing your display as the mood takes you.  This simply beautiful image portfolio box contains 10 of your favourite photos printed on lustre paper.

There are a huge range of frames available for your walls – different styles, colours and sizes so whether your home is a sleek modern loft or a cosy little country cottage there will be something to suit you.

All the frames are made from premium quality sustainable timber and the mounts are precision cut. The prints are supplied on photographic lustre finish paper that has a slightly stippled surface to give it texture. Protected behind ultra-clear anti-reflective acrylic the frames are both lighter and safer than more traditional fragile glass options.
