NEWBORNS - Linzi of MLB Photographic is one the most highly sought after Newborn Photographers within the High Peak. Her timeless & beautiful baby photography is well respected by her piers & her clients. Most of the images you see in Linzi's work are of newborns between 4-7 days of age. Usually booking out months in advance, booking is recommended at 20 weeks of your pregnancy to secure your newborn a spot in her diary. Once booked, Linzi will pencil you in under your due month in her calendar. Then once baby arrives please just let her know so she can schedule your exact date for your session. Newborn sessions must be conducted within 14 days of birth, so its imperative that you contact Linzi ASAP once little one arrives to schedule your session. After 14 days of age babies become more alert, less sleepy, less curly & more prone to colic & baby acne. Resulting in babies that are harder to pose. Please consider that with newborn photography there is no going back, all too often I've had people contact me begging for a newborn session because their auntie/uncle/brother/friend had offered to do their photos for them for free & they have been bitterly disappointed with the results. Sadly in most cases by the time this has all happened & your newborn will be too old to come to me for their newborn photos. But please, again, make sure that whoever you are handing your sweet brand new newborn over to â€“ you trust their ability to practice safely & with your babys needs as the only priority! If by any chance you have stumbled across MLB Photographic after baby has already been born, Linzi will do her best to squeeze you in before 14 days of age, if session space is available. However if little one is already over 14 days old, there are other session options available, please just contact Linzi to discuss your options further. Due to being a busy mum of three beautiful children, Linzi only takes on a limited number of sessions per month. This is to ensure her clients are provided with a high quality, non rushed session & after care. All Sessions are held in the MLB Photographic studio in Chapel-en-le-Frith. Its warm, relaxed & perfect for little ones to drift off into dreamland. During your session, parents are encouraged to sit back & relax in the studio whilst Linzi looks after your little one & captures those beautiful images of your baby. Most Newborn Sessions usually last around 2-3 hours, allowing plenty of time for set-ups/poses whilst ensuring your babys comfort & safety is paramount.

COVID19 STUDIO GUIDELINES
With the current Covid situation in High Peak, I feel it is not the right time to ease any safety protocols on 19th July.
At present High Peak is seeing some of the highest levels of COVID – the largest number of cases in the last week through all three waves of the pandemic.
On Monday I will continue to follow my current model of service and operation, I will still be wearing a face mask and even though it will not be legal I would appreciate you wearing one too please, due to my studio being in my home. I will still be cleaning down all my surfaces and props etc... I'm doing my best to protect you, myself & my family as much as possible, I have had both vaccines myself.
I feel this is the responsible thing to do for our community and will continue to monitor the situation.
Thank you for your understanding
I appreciate this is a very unusual time for us all, and not being able to work in the same way as before will be very hard, as the type
of photography session will also be very limited, as will the number of people I can have in my studio at any one time, due to my studio
being in my home. Availability will also be a lot less so I would like to thank you in advance for your patience during this time.
STUDIO GUIDELINES AND PRECAUTIONS FROM 19th JULY 2021:
BEFORE - Handwashing before and after a session has always been essential, as was washing props such as outfits and fabrics between
each session, and a good clean of the studio.
ADDITONAL PRECAUTIONS - Hand sanitizer available for clients and myself to use, face masks and only one client per day.
Please read the following before coming to the studio, as these might be updated regularly with new information. To keep myself and
you safe the following must be STRICTLY followed.
ILLNESS - If someone in you're household has been unwell in the last 72 hours or if someone who you have been in contact with outside
your household, please rearrange you're session
(no extra charge unless you have had to rearrange a cake smash booking, please contact me for details).
Please note, I will also postpone a session if myself, or a member in my household also has been unwell.
PAYMENT - To book a session, a non-refundable booking fee must be made, and this is done via bank transfer.
No refunds will be made but any session effected will simply be re-schduled. Going forward, all remaining balances MUST be paid via
bank transfer a few days (or once your little one has arrived, for newborn sessions) before you're session is due
(even if you have to re-schedule, remaining balance MUST be paid please see my T&C about booking fees/session fees)
no cash will be exchanged.
LIMITED SESSIONS - Sessions will be limited to 1 a day with at least 24hrs between each client.
NEWBORN SESSIONS - Only mum & baby will be allowed in the studio during the session. If you have gone for the Full Newborn Session & would like sibling/family shots done,
these will be done at the end of your session and I ask that dad or a close family member/friend brings siblings for the last 20 mins.
Max of 6 people only for now. Masks MUST be warn upon arrival please... they can be taken off once you are in the studio area for your photos.
CAKE SMASH SESSIONS: Please bring plenty of wipes, towels & maybe a spare pair of clothes for yourself... parents tend to get just as messy!

extra electronics, shopping...

- If children come in for a session, they MUST NOT be allowed to run around or touch any props etc... (I know this may be difficult, but it's very important!)
