Liz Wood offers sessions in her home studio located near Sudbury, Suffolk, or frequently travels across Suffolk, Essex and Cambridge to undertake at home sessions. These sessions are handy if you aren’t located to the area which means no travelling with a new baby or more frequently if you’ve had a c section and are feeling sore or can’t drive.
Newborn photoshoots – how they work
A newborn photosession can last 2-4 hours, this is to ensure your baby has time to feed and is content, every baby is different, and feeding patterns can take time to establish. What you don’t want is to sit watching your baby being moved around and unsettled and this is where experience in handling babies, and settling them comes in to play. Liz has photographed hundreds of babies over the years as well as being Mum to 3 of her own, and will reschedule a session in the rare event that baby is not settling at no cost. Upon booking your newborn portrait session, you are sent a link to an extensive gallery of baby photos where you can pick the type of images you like, if booked in advance props can also be ordered to create a truly bespoke experience. You are asked to fill in a questionnaire detailing your likes for colours, family photos and if you require sibling images, alongside receiving a contract detailing the service Liz will provide for you. An online private password protected gallery is sent to you and generally images are complete in 2-3 weeks. The majority of the work goes into the editing of your images.
