Designed especially for families who have missed the ‘two week window’ or would prefer to wait until their baby is a little older to visit the studio. These sessions capture a set of beautiful, natural family and baby portraits so you can remember this squishy newborn phase forever. Having a new baby is a rollercoaster ride of new experiences and emotions. Those early days can pass in a blur and before you know it your baby is becoming more alert, getting to know the world around them, and showing you their delightful little personality. Many families start to think about a newborn photo shoot at this stage, but often find that they’ve passed the ‘ideal window’ for posed newborn photos when your baby is more sleepy and naturally likes to curl up in the fetal position. My older newborn sessions mean that you don’t have to miss out. This session focuses on the newborn photographs that are suitable for older babies. Capturing a beautiful set of baby pictures to freeze this special moment in time. For more info & what's included, please message.
Firstly Many congratulations!

OLDER NEWBORN SESSIONS -
Having a new baby is a rollercoaster ride of new experiences and emotions. Those early days can pass in a blur and before you know it your baby is
becoming more alert, getting to know the world around them, and showing you their delightful little personality.
Many families start to think about a newborn photo shoot at this stage, but often find that they’ve passed the ‘ideal window’ for posed newborn photos
when your baby is more sleepy and naturally likes to curl up in the fetal position.
My older newborn sessions mean that you don’t have to miss out. This session focuses on the newborn photographs that are suitable for older babies.
Capturing a beautiful set of baby pictures to freeze this special moment in time.
Designed especially for families who have missed the ‘two week window’ or would prefer to wait until their baby is a little older to visit the studio.
These sessions capture a set of beautiful, natural baby portraits.
HOW IT WORKS - TIMINGS
Older newborn sessions are suitable for babies between 2 weeks and 5 months old, and last approximately two hours. (allow for 4)
You can get in touch to check my availability for these sessions and book your place by sending me a message.
If you’d like to book before your baby is born I recommend that we book a date approximately 4 days after your due date.
If your baby is born much earlier than expected just get in touch when they’re born and we can move the session to an earlier time.
I am limited with the amount of 'older' newborn sessions I can schedule per month. I try our best to accommodate last minute bookings but due to pre booked
sessions being a priority I am sometimes unable to accommodate new arrivals when a booking fee has not been secured.
I take on a maximum of 3 'older' newborns per week, so these sell out fast. so it is advised you book as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
BEFORE YOUR PHOTO SHOOT -
Before your shoot I’ll be at the end of an email to answer any questions you have.
If you could let me know what colours you DONB'T want me to use before your session, this would be great. I need 48hrs notice prior to your session
(if I don't hear from you, I'll assume you are happy for me to work my magic and will use a selection of different colours for your session)
I’ll also share lots of practical tips to help you prepare, from what to bring to what to wear to make sure you feel prepared for a relaxed,
YOUR OLDER NEWBORN SESSION -
The day of your session has arrived! We’ll usually spend around an hour together and I’ll start by photographing your baby on their own.
Your baby will be wrapped throughout the session and I’ll capture a variety of photographs in my signature natural style.
Towards the end of the session I’ll photograph you all as a family, including sibling portraits if you have older children.
During the session you’re my guest. I’ll make sure you feel relaxed and comfortable.
Should you like to capture the family bond, I will plan to take a few images with parents/siblings at the end of the session.
I ask that you and your children come dressed in neutral complimentry clothing (with no patterns) It is extremely important that your
children are kept quietly entertained throughout as to not disturb the relaxing atmospshere needed throughout the session. If you are
able to get a family member to bring your child/ren to the session towards the end this is greatly advised.
Please request when booking should you require this.

Due to being a busy mum of three beautiful children, Linzi only takes on a limited number of newborn 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 home from home 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 2-4 hours, allowing plenty of time for set-ups/poses whilst ensuring your babys comfort & safety is paramount.
Although capturing plenty of images is a priority, your babys needs will come first. Newborn safety is considered paramount to anything else during the session.
DUE TO COVID-19 GLOVES AND FACE MASKS WILL BE WORN BY LINZI AND PARENTS WILL BE ASKED TO USE ANTIBACTERIAL GEL UPON ARRIVAL (PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN)
TO MAXIMISE SAFETY, WE ASK THAT ONLY ONE PARENT BRINGS BABY.

COVID19 STUDIO GUIDELINES
I know we are all fed up with COVID now however, the virus is out there now and always will be so... Whilst the Government has recently advised that all legal covid rules will end on 24th February, I will NOT be changing how I do things in the studio. Therefore, from Thursday you will see no difference in the way things are done in the studio, I will continue to be cautious regarding COVID & for the safety of other clients, myself and my family, masks will still be required & worn when in the studio. You will of course be able to take your masks off for any photos you have taken. The reason I ask this is that I have lots of newborns coming in and clients that have/may have autoimmune conditions and want to provide a safe environment for everyone! I will continue to ask people with Covid, who have symptoms or have been in contact with someone ill, NOT to come to the studio. If you are unwell or anyone else due to attend the session, you MUST let me know asap and we will simply re-schedule your appointment. I will continue, as I always have, to offer a safe, relaxing environment for everyone. Thank you for your understanding. x
STUDIO GUIDELINES AND PRECAUTIONS FROM 24th FEBRUARY 2022:
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.
