Those few weeks with your new baby can be a sleepless haze when you look back at them – vague memories of the realisation after a power nap that there’s a baby in the room, learning the most mess-free way of cleaning up a poonami (poo tsunami!), grabbing in desperation for a muslin to catch an inevitable spit up or pee fountain.
You also want to remember just how tiny they were – their little toes and grippy fingers. Those dark eyes, button noses and perfect lips, every hair on their delicate little heads. We can’t capture that addictive newborn smell for you, but we can certainly preserve perfectly the memory of those little details, the windy smiles and the deep, quiet sleep.
We do this in the comfort of your own home. We include you as a family, not just the new leader of the household. All of our sessions are baby-led, no complex posing and baby’s comfort and safety are our top priority.
When Should I Book?
It is very important that you book your due date in with us as early as you are comfortable doing so, during the second or early third trimester is ideal. We are often booked up 2-3 months in advance and as such do not usually have last minute availability. Booking in advance ensures availability and allows us to plan for your session.
What about Covid-19?
We work as safely as possible, wearing clean clothing, shoe covers and a mask whilst inside your home. We sanitise our hands frequently and any contact with baby is minimal. Most of our sessions can be done with zero contact and full physical distance. Once Ireland has seen zero cases for at least one full month, we will consider reintroducing Mini Art & Comfort sessions in your own home for Newborns up to 4 weeks old – due to the level of physical contact required in order to achieve these comfortable wraps and poses for your baby, we are not offering any of these sessions at this time – based on medical advice we’ve received from doctors and nurses, we feel that it is simply not worth the risk to your little one’s health.
Your whole world has changed, we want to capture that for you. Binging TV shows is now replaced by staring at the tiny human in your lap and we want to preserve your memories of your new love, your unconditional attachment to this little person you’ve both brought into the world. All of the cuddling, the playing, the tickling, feeding, kissing, did we say cuddling? Lots of cuddling. Those little details, the hands and feet, those scrunched little ears. This type of session involves no wraps, outfits or fancy props. It’s raw. It’s real. It’s you, your family, your home.
Time: up to 1 hour
Includes: Session Fee, Digital Development of your images to a style that suits your family, a mixture of black and white images, USB with Gallery of approximately 50 images, Print Release (this allows you to print your images yourself, no big after-sales for prints through us), travel to your home up to 20km from Virginia, Co. Cavan (a small travel fee may apply for distances beyond this).
Covid-19 Note: We will work within guidelines at all times and for your safety we will use masks and shoe covers when we are inside your home. Sessions are strictly zero contact and with physical distance. Please understand that it is virtually impossible to maintain full physical distance with young children, so if they approach us, we will simply try to make space between us and them, no need to worry. Our HANDS will be clean, our FACE will be covered and we will keep SPACE between us. Hands, face, space!
This session allows our clients to have the best of both worlds. We do a short, wrapped session with baby (no knitted outfits, wraps only) followed by a Lifestyle Session.
Time: Up to 2 hours
Includes: Session Fee, Digital Backdrops & Compositing, USB with Gallery of approximately 2-3 Fine Art (wrapped) images and up to 30 Lifestyle images, Print Release (this allows you to print your images yourself, no big after-sales for prints through us), travel to your home up to 20km from Virginia, Cavan (a small travel fee may apply for distances beyond this).
