BOOKING YOUR NEWBORN PHOTOSHOOT

Photoshoots can be reserved with a €150 non-refundable retainer fee.
This is due within 7 days of your booking enquiry to hold your photoshoot date and lock in prices.

We’ll reserve some time around your estimated due date and choose a preferred date once your baby is born
Photoshoots are available throughout the week. Please book early if you prefer a weekend date.

The remainder (€200) is due prior to the date of your photoshoot.

A selection of carefully curated products are available to purchase after you view your proofing gallery; including heirloom albums, framed prints and digital only options. Clients typically invest between €600-€1100 on their photography experience and products.

When our second child was born Natalie came over and made some amazing pictures of our family. Our daughter was just a few days old and we now have these beautiful pictures that remind us of a magical time that’s over so quickly.

I look back at these photo’s and feel such joy that I can relive these moments that are often forgotten once daily life takes over.

Natalie is amazing at taking photo’s that aren’t posed but capture real family interactions.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

If you have a question for me, don’t hesitate to ask!

HOW SOON WILL I SEE MY IMAGES?

Individual attention and creative processing of your images normally takes 3 weeks.

I always choose the type of processing that best suits each individual image; therefore, your gallery may contain a mix of colour and black-and-white images.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET THE FINAL IMAGES?

Design and production of heirloom albums may take up to 8 weeks to process. I will keep you updated on your order’s progress.

Digital image files are delivered promptly via a cloud-based file transfer service.

I'VE ALREADY HAD MY BABY, IS IT TOO LATE TO BOOK A NEWBORN PHOTOSHOOT?

No, it’s not too late. I keep my calendar flexible to accommodate photoshoots with newborns so I might be able to fit you in. Please ask!

HOW DO YOU SUGGEST WE PREPARE FOR OUR PHOTOSHOOT?

If you have young children, tell them a friend is coming to take photos of your family with a camera. You can also show them a photo of me ahead of time so they know what I look like.

Make sure everyone is well fed and rested before your photoshoot. Try to avoid planning any busy activities on the same day as your photoshoot, such as a long walk or sports.

Relax, keep an open mind and most of all, enjoy spending this time with each other. A good mood will show in your images!

WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR FOR THE PHOTOSHOOT?

After booking, I’ll send you some clothing advice and tips as we prepare for your photoshoot.

The most important thing is for you to feel comfortable in the clothes that you wear.

DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH FAMILIES OUTDOORS?

Yes I do. Together we’ll plan the best location for your family. Please get in touch if you’d like to know more.

DO YOU TRAVEL OUTSIDE OF THE NETHERLANDS?

Yes, absolutely! However, please keep in mind that the ability to travel is dependent on the Covid-19 measures that are in place at the time of your photoshoot.

When travel is possible, i’m available to travel within Europe. Send me a message so we can start making plans!

ARE YOU BOOKING PHOTOSHOOTS DURING COVID-19?

Yes, I am! I would like to reassure you that I’m taking extra precautions in order to work safely and to prevent or control the spread of infection.

Health and safety is at the forefront of my mind when I’m photographing babies and I don’t want to put anyone at risk.

More details and what to expect during Covid-19 can be found here.
