Newborn Photography in Cork and Kerry

 

I am currently not taking on anymore newborn sessions for this year sorry.

 

So what makes me different to everyone else?

1.- I call to your home, so everyone is nice and relaxed. Babies are more relaxed at home as are you. The last thing most people want to do is to go sitting in the car for an hour or two round trip and then go to a studio, just think of everything you need to bring with you. If there are siblings they can play with their own toys in another room or take part in the session from start to end the choice is yours.

2.- You see the photographs on my laptop as I actually take them. I think this really helps people understand the sessions better as you see the images in full screen as I capture them.

3.- I bring numerous colours of backdrops and blankets/wraps with me.  

4.- You choose the shots you want from the session, not me.

5.- I am fully insured. For your peace of mind and I have spare camera equipment with me at all times.

Why pick me?

So to sum it all up you get a longer newborn photo shoot. So less stress.

I call to your home. Again giving a more relaxed shoot.

I let you pick the images you want.

The standard and most popular package gives you 10 images.

Very fast turn around of images at no extra cost, so you’re not waiting weeks or months for the images.

I am a very relaxed person myself and the newborn photography sessions are very easy going, as a father of five children you have to be a bit easy going :-).
 

Over the years I have captured tens of thousands of photographs of newborns and each and every single one has been both a joy and a real privilege for me.

I work in a very relaxed manner as the shoot is all under your control and the star of the show is your baby of course.

Newborn Photography in Cork and Kerry

Funnily enough most parents really enjoy the shoots and the input they can provide while also seeing the results straight away on my laptop as I take the photographs. Most parents dread the shoot but end out enjoying it.

I know after giving birth and all the life-changing moments people go through that the last thing you want is some stranger running around your home and putting pressure on to do this or that. So please don’t worry about feeling under pressure or stressing about having photographs taken.

I have been through it 5 times already myself, I understand how your feeling.

So I just try to make everything as easy as possible for my clients and help everyone relax and enjoy the experience. The real payment for me has always been seeing the parents faces as they look at the photographs.

Newborn photography is something you just can’t rush, I truly understand how important these photographs are.

All digital photographs are delivered within 3 working days in your own private password protected gallery. I don’t share your images anywhere online.

How the newborn photographs are delivered…

As I take the photos you can see them on my laptop (in your home) or on a 28″ professional monitor (in my studio), this helps to ensure that I the photographer and you the customer are on the same page regarding the style of images you would like to receive from your newborn photography session. For me, this is one of the most valuable tools for newborn photography as it takes the guesswork out of the resulting images for you the customer.

I then upload the images to a secure password protected gallery, from there you can select your images and I will finish of the selected shots to your satisfaction and then they are free to be downloaded, printed and kept forever. You get two galleries one in High resolution for printing and the other in low resolution which is ideal for emailing to family or friends or sharing via social media.

Why me?

I am an international award-winning photographer and I only use professional-grade equipment with a back up on hand at all times. I am also fully insured.

I am a member of Nikon’s Professional user’s club and the society of Professional Portrait photographers. All of this means nothing if you are not happy with the photographs which is why you see them while I actually take them (explained above).

As a father of five children (I delivered the second youngest myself, completely not part of the birthing plan but the most amazing experience ever) I understand the sheer impact and life-altering event having a baby has on a family with all those beautiful moments and emotions rushing around as well as the sleepless nights (definitely worth it). I also completely understand how precious and delicate your little one is, I am always extremely careful while positioning or moving your baby.

My aim is to keep everything as relaxed and gentle as possible for both baby and parents. Everything is done at babies pace to ensure a happy experience. 

The priority for me is that you are very happy with the photographs you receive after the shoot. Regardless of anything else, this is the priority for me because I truly understand how important these images are. 

Newborn Photography produces some of the most utterly amazing photographs you will possibly ever have in your home, freezing those precious moments shortly after birth for a lifetime. Capturing this tiny little person on their first few days in this big world. 

A gift that keeps on giving over and over again down through the years, Photographs that will be cherished by both parent and child for decades to come.

Where and when…

The newborn photography session can be either in the comfort of your own home or in my studio. There is a travel charge if the shoot is further than 40km from Clonakilty. Please ask for more details and I will be happy to give you a personalised quote. Click here to send me a message.

I bring all the props, studio lighting, blankets and accessories with me. Including a portable heater to keep baby extra warm. The lighting I use is low powered double diffused flash so it is extremely gentle and very kind to babies eyes, a lot of people are concerned about using direct flash like on a normal camera incl smartphones as newborns eyes are highly sensitive still. I can assure you this system is extremely safe and incredibly mild. 

All the props I use are replaced regularly and cleaned after every use. You can also choose the colour of the blankets, outfit and accessories for the shoot or even bring along something of sentimental value to you that you would like in one of the photos (old teddy bears and/or dolls are most common) 

Normally the best time for newborn photography sessions is within the first 14 days after birth as both mother and baby have had time to recover and get to know one and other. The newborn features are nearly perfect at that stage and the baby should be a bit more relaxed and comfortable in their new environment. They also sleep a lot at this time which is ideal for newborn shoots.

Preparation

Before the newborn photography session, it’s best to change baby’s nappy and to put it on looser than normal and to change into loose fitting clothes. Its usually best to for baby to have a feed 20-30 minutes before the shoot actually starts. Ideally, the room temperature should be around 20 degrees for the photo shoot to make sure the baby is relaxed and nice and warm.

On an ideal newborn photography session your baby will sleep all the way through it. This makes it a lot easier to position hands, arms, legs & feet.

Below is a special video I made which can also be found on Youtube

It’s designed to help your baby sleep and also relax.

It has two main elements a hairdryer sound to create white noise which is incredibly pleasing for babies and secondly a slow 60 beats per minute heartbeat. The combination of these two noises I have found is incredibly relaxing and calming for babies.
