FAQ

How long is the session?

From start to finish, Your session will take 2-4 Hours. In this time, I will take the photographs & go through all the packages & pricing.

Should I feed my baby beforehand?

Whether you are still in hospital or having your session in the Studio, I will plan with you to take the photos after your newborn has had a good feed and is sleeping, so they are nice and settled.

Should I put my baby in an outfit?

As clothes can sometimes date, I prefer newborns to be naked with just a nappy on. I hide the nappy with your choice of coloured blanket. But with that being said, I can take photos of your baby in one outfit, however please be aware I do not change their clothes as they tend to wake up and become unsettled.

What if my baby is unsettled?

I will always try to get at least a few photos so you have something, as you don’t have to buy a package and can purchase a single photo if you prefer. If your baby is very unsettled we can book for another day. Babies are usually unsettled on day 2 and 3 as they are starting to wake up a little and are usually waiting on your milk to come in. In saying that, not all babies are the same.

Can I get some family group photos with their siblings as well?

Yes, I do family and sibling photos, but please be mindful I work in school hours and your other children will need to be there at the time of the session.

What should I wear?

Choosing outfits can be a daunting task but it doesn’t have to be. Firstly, it is important to feel comfortable in what you are wearing. Secondly choose colours/tones that will complement each other and your home, avoiding logos and clashing patterns. I Also recommend you wear clothes that are in a similar colour palette to the colour of your session that you may have selected, you can also include Personalise family heirlooms &/or cultural items, etc. If you are not sure of your choice or have any questions, please let me know and i can send you some ideas.

Do you photograph special care babies?

Yes. If you would like us to photograph your special care baby, it is best done when your baby is closer to being discharged from the hospital, and all drips and tubes are removed. I will be happy to arrange for your photos to be taken in the Nursery or on the ward.

Is Storks Photography up to date with all Immunisations?

Yes, To keep your newborn safe Kristy Farrugia is always keeping up to date with safety Practises & is always up to date with all her immunisations & Flu shots Plus she is Fully Covid vaccinated.
