Booking Information & Copyright

Session fees are payable at the time of booking and DO NOT include any images. Session fees are non-refundable, unless deducted from a newborn package.

Under no circumstances does this cover the right to use any photograph taken by Small Frog Photography prior to full payment. For the avoidance of doubt, any breach of copyright for images produced by us, will result in us taking legal action against the alleged party.

If you cannot make your booked photo shoot then please give us a minimum of 24 hours notice. If you do not turn up for your photo shoot or cancel in less than 24 hours notice, then unfortunately we will not refund your deposit. This deposit will also not be accepted to secure any further bookings with us and will have to be repaid again in full.

Please note: whilst we appreciate it can take some time deciding which package you would like, we are only able to accept an order within 60 days from the date of your shoot. We do not keep images after this date, therefore please ensure you are happy with your photos as soon as you receive your disc, as we cannot make alterations or edits after this time has passed.


Scheduling Your Session

It is never too early to book a newborn session. Ideally most expectant mothers will book their session at 12 – 20 weeks of their pregnancy.

Upon booking, your due date will diarised to await your confirmation that you have had the baby.

I ask that you contact me as soon after the birth as possible, for a specific appointment to be booked with us. Most parents simply include us in their announcement text or email.


What To Expect

Ideally your session with us will start in the morning with an approximate time allocation of 4 hours.

We ask that you try to time it so that your newborn will need a feed as soon as we start, which will hopefully be closely followed by a deep sleep for the shoot.

I will be carefully handling your baby to get them into the ideal positions required for your shots.  I always work in a warm room to ensure your baby isn’t cold. The comfort of your baby is my priority on the day.

Your baby is mostly photographed without clothing, using a choice of props, blankets, wraps, hair bands  etc, that are always styled around your baby, ensuring that he/she is comfortable at all times.

A small radiator heater is used to warm the studio if necessary, to help your baby be as cosy as possible.

Parents are provided with complimentary refreshments during your appointment with us.


After The Shoot

Please allow 14 days for your images to be available online.

You will be given a sneak preview the same day, as I know how much parents look forward to seeing their images. Unless you specify otherwise, the images will be shared on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Once you have left the studio, I will begin to edit your photos, which will then be uploaded to a password protected client area, accessible through our website.

Once this has been completed I will email access details for your personal viewing area.

Once you have viewed the sample images within your gallery, we ask you to provide us with confirmation of the package, if any, you would like.

Upon receipt of full payment from the package you choose, your selected images will be provided to you within 7 days of receipt of payment.
