Thank you so very much for choosing me to be
part of your family's journey. My goal is to
always provide you with a wonderful
experience. This includes a fun session, high
quality prints, beautiful products and top notch
customer service. And best of all I do this at an
affordable price! My clients mean the world to
me and ensuring that I deliver unforgettable
memories that you, your family and your friends
can treasure forever is my top priority.
Photography is more than my passion and I
strive to deliver a fantastic experience to you …
one that you will be happy to recommend to
your friends. Be sure to contact me with any
questions or concerns you may have.
I’m Viv, and I’m the one with the camera. I’m
mum to one, with one another one on the way
and I love baby’s and beautiful mums to be.
Newborn sessions are my favourite studio
sessions as I love having the privilege of
capturing those precious images of your
beautiful baby that you will treasure forever.
Newborn safety is of paramount importance to
me and I invest heavily in ongoing professional
development and training in this area. I carried
out my training with Maddy Rogers who is a
pioneer in newborn safety in the UK and trains
photographers here and around the world in
safely posing newborns for photography. You
will see on the day of your session that there is
only a very small amount of the session
dedicated to actually taking the picture and so
much more in settling baby and ensuring they
are positioned safely I am also a member of
BANPAS (Baby and Newborn Photography
Association) which is committed to newborn

WHY DO I HAVE TO BOOK IN ADVANCE?
I get very busy very quickly sometimes and can’t always fit new mums in. Please
do book as early as possible, ideally as soon after your 12 weeks scan as you can.
LAST MINUTE BOOKINGS, CAN YOU TAKE
I will always try and fit you in and because of this, it’s always worth calling to
see. You never know…a booked shoot may not run according to schedule due to
mums at times running late and a slot may open up!
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE SESSION?
After the session you will be invited back for a viewing appointment. This is
where you will see your gallery of images and decide how to keep your images
and display them around your home and whether you want to select any
additional images or products as gifts. I offer a range of high quality products
from Birch blocks, deco frames, prints, desk art, digital images available on USB
and much more to really show off all the beautiful images taken at your shoot.
HOW DO I GET BABY READY FOR THE SESSION?
Full newborn sessions are scheduled for 10:30am starts. I ask that you hold off
on baby’s second feed of the day until you arrive at the session, and that for the
hour before you really stimulate baby (tickle their feet, play with them etc). Once
you arrive at the studio I will ask you to strip baby off and wrap them in their
blanket (please bring a blanket with you). I will then ask you to feed them so that
they will hopefully then be ready for a good deep sleep. For breastfeeding mums
if you are able to express that helps with the mid-session feed as it keeps baby
more settled, but don’t worry if you have not introduced a bottle yet.
WHAT HAPPENS IF BABY MAKES A MESS ON
Well this is normal and I’m surprised it doesn’t happen more. Finishing a session
covered in pee is totally normal for me. Everything is washed in baby non-bio
detergent so please don’t worry.
PAGE 7| FOREVER GREEN PHOTOGRAPHY
WILL YOU BE HANDLING MY BABY?
Yes, I will be cuddling, soothing and posing your baby the entire session and
handing him/her back to you at the end, or if I feel that they need you before. The
posing I will be doing means I will be moving your baby in a very special way, and
even though they are yours, you will be unfamiliar with my posing techniques.
Rest assured though, he will be comfortable and happy at all times. His safety
and comfort are my top priority.
At any point in the session you are of course free to hand him back.
WHAT HAPPENS IF MY BABY CRIES AND WON'T
This is perfectly normal for some of the session. On occasion I can go over an
hour without taking a single photograph. Each session involves settling baby
when you arrive and this can take 2 minutes or much longer. Your baby is likely
to wake and need a top up feed too (and probably a poop). There is no rush and
that is why we allow so long for the session. Baby dictates entirely how things go.
IS YOUR STUDIO SAFE?
Yes, is the simple answer. Your baby’s safety is my top priority. Nothing will be
done to put your baby at risk at any time. I am also fully insured. The images you
see with baby in a tub, chair or similar are all done using a variety of clever
techniques to avoid putting your baby in harm’s way. Some poses and set ups will
require you to give me a helping hand to keep baby safe.
WHY DOES THE SESSION TAKE SO LONG?
The session is a very calm, gently and laid-back affair and you baby runs the
show. I cannot and will not make a baby do what he or she doesn’t want to do…
so the session involves a lot of gentle soothing to get the best poses. Rushing the
session would not work so I take as long as it needs. If you have an appointment
on the day please consider rescheduling your session. Clock watching creates
stress and stress will scupper the session.
WILL YOU USE A DUMMY?
Yes, very likely. Even if you don’t use one at home, in order to keep baby settled I
will often use my own sterilised dummies as it really does help. I am moving baby
while asleep in ways he won’t he or she won’t be used to been moved at home,
and how they react to that varies from baby to baby. Some are fine and some
benefit from a little extra soothing with a dummy. Using one just while I pose
won’t cause any confusion with feeding, but if you are really against the idea
please do let me know.
PAGE 8| FOREVER GREEN PHOTOGRAPHY
CAN I BRING MY OTHER CHILDREN TO THE
As the studio is an intimate space I can only accommodate older siblings for a
short while during the session. Also, small children will simply get bored and may
cause disruption to the calm of the newborn session. However, I do love doing
sibling shots so if you’d like them doing please let me know. Ideally you can
arrange to have your older sibling stay just long enough to have their photograph
taken at the beginning or end of the session.

THE MINI NEWBORN SESSION
If you are on a budget, or missed out on having The Full Newborn
Experience within the first 3 weeks, this is for you. This session is simple,
and all about baby. It does not include parents or sibling images. You can
choose one colour with a wrap, one hat or headband, and I will take a small
selection of images. There will be no use of containers, props, furs or
outfits. The session will take around an hour, and I will then send you the
best 5 images within 24 hours. The session is suitable for babies up to 4
weeks of age. You have full printing rights so you can share the images and
print them as you wish for friends and family.
