This package was created because of demand. I had quite a few people asking for the first year of their babies lives, so I thought I would now offer it as a fab package, so you get a saving benefit too. Everybody is happy! Please read on for more information.
Little Beanies ‘Watch Your Little Beanies Grow’ Package
What to Expect on the day
Little Beanies Photography specialises in natural light photography for tiny ones and families. My mission is ultimately for you and your family to have fun at the session whilst I capture some precious moments of your little ones, which you can look back on in years to come with a smile. It will be a calm environment and hopefully as little posing as possible to get the most informal relaxed photos. There is always a little bit but I like to keep it to a minimum! If this is what you want then you have come to the right place!
Where & When the Session will Take Place
We will agree a preferred date at a location of your choice. If you have tiny children/babies then I tend to do a session inside in your living space, whether that be the bedroom or living room or a bit of both. For older children parks and woods with some open space work really well. We can discuss upon booking a location that can work and tailor this to suit your needs. I am happy to do a bit of both if your home and venue of choice are close together and within the time. However I am flexible with feeding etc.
What to wear
Please wear what you all feel the most comfortable in. The more informal and relaxed you feel the better the photos will be, as you won’t actually feel like you are in front of a camera. If you can bring along anything the kids like to play with e.g. football, scooters etc it helps to make the kids more relaxed and definitely bring some snacks. For babies please gather together their favourite blankets/soft toys etc.
Benefits of booking a ‘Watch Your Little Beanies Grow’ Package
The first year goes so quickly, I know from experience because I have my own boy Louis who is already one. Literally in the flicker of an eyelid I don’t know where that year has gone. My biggest regret was not capturing him as much as I should in the first year.
So what does the package offer?
- Captures the key milestones in the first year
- Takes the pressure off yourselves to capture those precious moments
- Creates consistency of photos by using the same photographer therefore making those keepsake prints around the house, photo books and gifts look awesome.
- The biggest element is you’ll really get to know me and I get to know you and your gorgeous family and having that connection will help you and your baby relax during the session and ultimately get the best from you.
- Finally you save those pennies too 😉
- Approx 1-2 hours of my time with my camera on 3 x sessions;
- Newborn (1st 12 weeks)
- 6 months (sitting up time!)
- 1 year (either simply capturing life or 1st birthday party)
- Each session would include 50 plus images of your photoshoot for you to choose from in an online gallery available 2-3 weeks following the session.
- As well as a reduced session fee this will also include 10-15% off a Little Beanies Signature Collection. For me info please request a brochure.
A few nice words
“Nine weeks ago our little bundle of joy popped into our world, and I have to say it’s been the most beautiful, wonderful, challenging, rewarding and amazing experience ever. And as any parent will tell you, they change so fast over the first few weeks my wife and I wanted to get a snapshot of these fledgling moments. We’d met Lisa at an open day laid on by the ladies from Birthability and we really loved her reportage style. I’ve always been a fan of photographers who are able to capture a special moment without making it look cheesy – and Lisa has just such a style. So we got in touch and arranged a booking that’s spread over the course of the year, one shoot now, one in six months and one after a year – that way we can really see how Beatrice has changed.
As both myself and Hannah aren’t professional models by trade, we were a little uncomfortable in front of the camera at first, but Lisa put us at ease and before we knew it we were enjoying ourselves and the whole process of getting a good shot. We’d also been concerned about the size of our apartment and whether it would effect the composition of the photos, but Lisa assured us it would be ok so we ploughed on. And I’m happy to say that our little Beatrice was well behaved too! It was a really great experience, made all the more enjoyable thanks to Lisa’s amiable personality.
After about two weeks a little box arrived from Lisa, replete with a selection of our photos printed out, a memory stick and some rather tasty bean sweets inside. Needless to say, we loved the photos (and the beans)! A gorgeous selection of colour and black and white photos, each of which had been finished with a bit of retouching magic from Lisa. She’d really managed to capture some endearing moments of us as a family – photos we’ll be enjoying for many years to come. And I’m happy to report the size of our apartment hadn’t affected the photos at all. I couldn’t recommend Lisa enough and I’m definitely looking forward to the next shoot to see what she’ll capture.”
