What is the difference between a newborn mini session and a newborn full session?
When booking a full newborn photoshoot, you will have a consultation before the session via email or telephone to discuss your requirements, making your photoshoot as bespoke to you as possible. We discuss your favourite colours, the props you would like to see used, your preferred style of images and the poses you'd like to get. When booking a mini session, we will of course still prepare you for your photoshoot, however there is nothing discussed about the style of photographs as they are a set gallery as displayed above.
Full sessions take between 2-4 hours, compared to the 1 hour mini session. During the full session, I take time to sooth and settle your baby, we allow time for feeding, winding, crying, changing etc to ensure your baby is happy so we can get the discussed photos. It takes longer as there is much more to work through, including plenty of props and sibling/ parent shots. The mini session however is continued whether your baby is awake or asleep, of course if they are crying or unhappy, I will try my best to sooth them to a content mood. You are never kicked out of the door when your hour is up, I will always make sure I get your beautiful images, it is however, much more simple, natural images that do not take so much time up.
Styling & Posing - Props & Parent Shots:
As mentioned above, the full newborn sessions include multiple props, including buckets, baskets, beds, hats, headbands, wraps, outfits and so on. These sessions are designed to be posed sessions, where I will position your baby in multiple different poses, many different colours and styles are used to create a wide gallery of images. An optional extra in the full session is to have parent and/ or sibling photographs included. The mini sessions do not include any of the above, they are designed just around your baby and their key features. We focus solely on your little bundle, capturing them in their natural state, for pure, simple images. One neutral blanket is used for a simplistic feel, and no additional extras are added.
Of course I edit all of my images to perfection, but the difference between a newborn full session and a newborn mini session is that the mini sessions are light, basic editing, for a pure and simple finish. The full sessions are given the option to be edited more thoroughly. I will never edit a baby beyond my usual editing style unless parents request, however in the full sessions things like blemishes, dry skin, jaundice etc can be edited on request.
Amount of Images:
In the full sessions, I aim to create a gallery of between 35-40 images, possibly more if parents and siblings are involved. For the mini sessions, there will be a gallery of 10 images. The mini sessions are designed to be quick and easy (although not rushed), to capture just your beautiful baby and how small and perfect they are, with no added fuss.
Pricing & Packages:
The mini session is priced at £199, which is paid up front and includes 3 digital images, a gallery of 10 final images will be emailed to you within 3 working days, where you will choose which 3 you'd like to download. The full creative newborn session has a choice of packages to choose from, any of which require a £99 redeemable deposit which is deducted from the total cost. You then come back to the studio to view your gallery of 35+ images and decide on a package. Should you wish not to purchase any images, the £99 is refundable for the full session.
Both the newborn mini sessions and the full newborn sessions include a referral scheme, this is where you can earn £25 to spend at Inspirique with each friend you recommend. Both photoshoots also include huge discounts on items at Baby Gosling, a nursery store in Syston which is exclusively for Inspirique customers. The full session has package options to also receive money off wall art and a sitter session for when your baby is 6-9 months old.
Newborn photoshoots are generally booked after your 20 week scan. Although mini sessions can be a little more flexible with later bookings. So please reserve your slot as soon as you possibly can to avoid disappointment. I will always try my best to accommodate last minute bookings but please be aware I am not always able to do so.
