The first few weeks in your newborns life, can often be a bit of a blur. It’s such an exciting time but it’s also a really big change. Your baby will grow so quickly that soon they won’t feel so tiny in your arms and will soon be much more awake and alert. Here at ZigZag Photography, we work to capture these early memories with beautiful images for you to cherish forever.
All of our newborn photoshoots take place on weekdays so that we can give you a little longer in the studio. We ensure that the studio is warm to make sure your baby is comfortable and allow time for feeds and changes. We recommend you bring your baby when they are under 10 days old to get the best chance of them being sleepy and curled up however this can’t always be guaranteed. Some babies are keen to see what’s going on around them, and take centre stage being very alert. However your baby performs on the day, we always manage to capture beautiful images. Our photographers are very experienced with babies and have lots of methods to sooth them and keep them content.
Whilst we do provide a selection of props, we also encourage you to bring some of your own things along, to help make sure your images are just as unique as you. Blankets in different colours and varying textures always work well. Do you have anything up in the nursery such as things that spell out your babies name? Little toys, outfits or any sentimental things you may have been gifted are a great way to make sure there is variety in your show. If your not sure how an item will work, don’t worry our photographers are very creative and will be able to work out the best way of using it. Anything you bring along, won’t be used in all images - we will bring different things out for different shots.
Our newborn shoots aren’t reserved just for the baby. It’s such an important time in everyones life that you’ll want to capture Mum, Dad, siblings and other family members too so as your baby grows up, they can see what you looked like when they were little too. We do ask for other family members to avoid wearing anything white or too pale as we do shoot in a white studio so dark and bright colours work best and we having a changing room here so you can bring some different options along too if you wanted to.
Our newborn shoots are just £25. This includes the weekday photography session. Your photographer will then spend several hours editing your images and putting your show together for you. They will get you booked in for your viewing appointment at the end of your photoshoot which is usually about a week later. Included with your voucher, you will get to choose one image that we will make into a framed 7”x5” portrait for you. You will then have the option to purchase anything additional that you choose to. Prints start at £35 each, digitals start at £50 each and framed portraits start at £75. We also have a few package deals available that offer large discounts and you will also have the option of spreading the cost over monthly payments with one of our payment plans.
You can also choose to upgrade your session to a bump and baby shoot for no additional cost. Your photographer will then combine your bump photo’s and your newborn photo’s into one show, ready for your viewing. They will put some beautiful collections together so that you can showcase your babies journey together on some amazing wall art.
Our photography experience gift vouchers also make great gifts as they come presented in a stylish gift box and gift bag. Postage is free. You can purchase them here on our website, over the phone on 0116 2700995 or at our studio.
The ZigZag studio is very popular and the diary can get booked up very far in advance. If you are currently expecting a baby and would like to get booked in, we can always provisionally book you in for when you expect baby to be here. If baby is then early or late, this can then be changed once baby is here.
If you would like to check our availability, this can be done over the phone or you can send us a message below.
