When we had our daughter we would have loved to have had a newborn photo shoot but we simply couldn’t afford. Having a baby is an expensive business! So my aim is to provide affordable yet quality digital images that you can print, enlarge and reprint to your hearts desire without breaking the bank!
Welcome to Friday’s Child Photography My name is Kerry and I have a beautiful, cosy little studio at Alcumlow Hall Farm in Cheshire and I specialise in Newborn and Early Years Photography. My studio and it’s setting is perfect for small children.
We have a play area and a Snugbury’s Ice Cream parlour, not to mention a pottery painting studio and some beautiful little gift shops. There is plenty to do for Mummies and Daddies too so after your photo shoot you can treat yourself to an ice cream and a little browse in the shops.
The studio itself is small, cosy and very inviting and just the perfect size for little children to ensure that they feel calm and relaxed and not in any way overwhelmed by the experience.
Sibling shots are welcome but I recommend you arrange for someone to collect the older child after half an hour, the studio is very warm and isn’t much fun for children.
I would like to let you know that my studio is quite small and for the baby’s safety and comfort, it will be very warm too. So be prepared with cool clothing and maybe a drink and a nibble to help keep you going, as the shoot can take up to 4 hours. There is also a cafe on site if you wish to buy any refreshments.
In order to create a relaxed and soothing environment, for baby, I highly recommend that no more than two people are present at the time of the shoot.
Generally, baby will be naked during the shoot, so be prepared for accidents. A newborn without a nappy can sometimes get messy but please don’t worry at all, I am used to it! Be prepared with a couple of spare nappies, wipes and cotton wool for cleaning up baby.
Your package option is to be paid on the day of your session.
Thank you so much for visiting my website, please feel free to have a browse and do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me. Congratulations on your new bundle of joy, I look forward to meeting with you both soon.
Please bring along some extra feeds if you are bottle feeding, a snuggly blanket and a dummy. This will help soothe baby back to sleep if he or she disturbs a little.
The session fee is non-refundable and is to be paid upon booking.
Postage can be arranged at a cost of £7.00 p&p which must be paid prior to products being posted.
If you could try to keep baby awake as much as possible on the morning of the shoot and give baby a feed when you arrive at the studio, this will help to keep baby full and sleepy and ready to pose for the camera. Hopefully this will give us the best chance to achieve the sleepy shots you dream of.
Firstly, I would like to say a huge thank you for choosing me to capture such a special time in your life and secondly, for allowing me the opportunity to have lots of baby cuddles!
