FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q. When should I book? We have very limited availability, so please pop us a message as soon as you can. Once baby is here, it may be too late. We take bookings from your 12 week scan, so please contact us when you are still pregnant and let us know your due date so we can check availability. We will then send you our full pricing information and let you know what to do next!


Q. How long does a session take? Your session will be at my  home studio in the BD17 postcode of Bradford. We don't rush you and make sure you enjoy every moment of your time here!  A newborn session tends to take a little longer, to allow plenty of time for feeding and settling baby. You can expect your newborn session to last between 2 hours. You'll find this time goes very quickly! Many parents say it's the first time they've been able to enjoy a hot cup of tea since baby arrived


Q. How can I make sure my baby has a great experience? We take photographs of how your baby is on that day. We want your experience with us to become a treasured memory and above all, we want you to all feel relaxed and comfortable. Upon booking, you will be sent a "session preparation" guide by email which has some tips and tricks you can try at home beforehand with baby.


Q. What if I feel self-consious about breastfeeding? If you have chosen to breastfeed your baby, it can be a worrying thought feeding "in public" in the beginning. Breastfeeding is totally normalised in my home studio (and also in our family), so please don't worry or feel anxious. You may find baby wishes to feed little & often whilst here, which is very normal for both breast and bottle fed babies during their photo session.


Q. I want my other children to be in the photos, but I'm afraid they won't want to join in? Young Children can be unpredictable in a studio environment, so we recommend keeping talk of the "photo shoot" light and breezy, without putting pressure on them to smile or sit still. Keep them rested and calm beforehand if you can and bring some fruit or favourite little treats with you. We suggest they come with you for the first hour of your session, then have a relative take them off to do something fun while we continue your session with new baby. Our cosy home studio is very small and will be very warm for your newborn - and not a fun place for children to stay and sit still!! Please do let us know you plan to include your older child(ren) upon booking so we can plan your session around them


Q. Will you edit out blemishes or anything else I don't want in my finished gallery? The final images you view are professionally, lightly retouched and enhanced by hand to remove blemishes or marks that wouldn't normally be there.


Q. How many images will I view? After your session, we aim to provide you with around 20 fully retouched images to view at your Preview & Ordering appointment. We find our clients value that one "WOW" piece to hang on their wall and treasure for a lifetime, so each image you view will be designed as a center piece. You will view your selection of coloured and black & white finished pieces at your personal Preview & Ordering appointment with us, scheduled a few days after your shoot.


Q. Do I get all the images on a disk? This is a question we are asked very often. Please read our session information guide to see what is included within your session fee. Your session fee does not include images or art, unless otherwise advertised. These can all be purchased separately after your session. We take your memories very seriously and provide a high class photography experience for you. We aren't "Shoot & Burn" photographers, but there are photographers who offer this service in the area if this is what you would prefer for your memories.

When it comes to ordering your images, we don't "hard sell" (once you meet us... well, you'll see it's really not our style!) We provide you with our full price list when you contact us to book, before you commit to booking - which includes something for everyone. This way, you get total freedom over how many images you choose and how you'd like to present them at home. We offer a variety of luxury products for you to choose from including wall art, digital images + rights, luxury print packs, albums and more.


Q. Will I get copyright of the photographs? Copyright can be a confusing subject: As the artist and creator of your images, Andrea Muscroft  Photography retain full copyright of any photographs taken. This protects the privacy of your images, as your images remain insured and protected by our cover. If you wish to purchase digital images, you will receive a full Print Release Permission form to accompany your purchased images, meaning you are able to share, print, replicate and duplicate your chosen images as many times as you like for personal use! Lemon Sky will not use images online without your permission.
