The little princess has arrived! The little prince is here! Suddenly, home becomes a castle, with bubbles of love and happiness floating everywhere, with a new heart giving new life to a growing family that is literally on cloud nine. The first few days are precious, we observe everything, we don’t want to forget a single second, we want to memorise all this forever. That’s just the way it is with great love stories.
PINCH OF DREAM
Is there anything more wonderful than photographing a new-born? It is our great privilege and we strive to do it in a peaceful environment, with suggestions of backdrops, positions, wardrobe and accessories suitable for the baby, always in tune with mom and dad. But let’s not forget, the real star here is the little one.
We know how important this moment is and to be able to capture it in all its essence, we suggest that the New-born Session be scheduled during the first days of the baby’s life, ideally between the 5th and 15th day. Sleepy, colic-free and very easy to position, it’s the perfect time to capture all those sweet curled up poses. If you are unable to schedule the session during that time, don’t worry, let’s talk and schedule it a little further along. The session lasts approximately 3 hours and will take place in our studio, where we create dreamy backdrops and use simple and baby-friendly accessories to bring this experience to life. We’ll have a prior consultation to outline all the details (from positioning to the colours and accessories we’ll use), including special requests and clarifying any questions you may have.
We only use props and accessories made with soft and organic materials, suitable for the baby’s skin. Everything we use is properly cared for and gently washed between sessions with natural, chemical-free detergents.
And because we are dealing with a very small baby, it makes perfect sense to redouble care and ensure the complete organisation of the session:
If the baby takes a supplement, we recommend you bring enough for three feedings; if the baby is exclusively breastfed, don’t worry about anything else. Our studio has a quiet space where you can take care of your baby.
If your baby has colic and your paediatrician has already prescribed pain relief medication, be sure to bring it with you.
Even if the baby doesn’t use a pacifier, bring one. It could be important if the baby has a very intense sucking reflex at some point. If you forget, don’t worry!
If possible, bring the baby wearing only a diaper and tightly wrapped in a blanket. If that’s not possible, dress the baby with the least amount of clothing possible, to avoid waking up the little one while undressing. It’s not necessary to bring any other clothing to the session, we have everything we need at the studio.
HEALTH, HYGIENE AND SAFETY
If the baby shows any signs and/or symptoms of any health problem, let us know and we will reschedule the session as soon as the situation normalises. If any of the baby’s family members manifest any health situation that inspires care, such as the flu for example, they will not be able to remain in the studio during the session, for safety and hygiene reasons.
In order for the session to be peaceful, it is important that the environment is peaceful. Ideally, only parents and siblings should be present, but only if they are also participating in the session.
If you are participating in the session, we would appreciate that both parents and siblings wear clothing with neutral colours and no prints, if possible.
DURATION OF THE SESSION
We arrive at the studio 1 hour before the start of the session, so that we can prepare everything and make sure the space is warm and comfortable to welcome you. The session lasts approximately 3 hours, however, this will always depend on the baby. Try not to make any other appointments on that day, so that we don’t have to rush the session. We appreciate your punctuality on the day of the session, we want you to enjoy everything you are entitled to.
We were informed of everything from the temperature of the place to the food. When we arrived we were extremely well received, there was a sign with our daughter's name on the door. As we entered, the place was lovely warm and comfortable. Sofia stayed with the photographer, while I was being looked after by the make up lady, I loved it ... We stayed in a room with a huge diversity of food, in that room we had a window where we could watch the whole session. We also could watch a movie or any other program, they were incredible. We can only thank the whole team, for all the attention for all the affection they had with both the parents and our daughter, I would like to thank for the opportunity.
I had the privilege of having @pinchofheavenphotography entered my life, in what was the most special sessions, the session of my Pregnancy! ❤️ I was surrendered with such sympathy, delicacy and sensitivity. When I got the final result, well... I couldn't believe it! The words will not make any justice to how I felt! ❤️
Once upon a time... in Sesimbra... in "Pinch of Heaven Photography", a long waited dream came true! My debut, my reunion, so much connection and a pure love. That's how it all happened to me. My story, my own self was "projected", in these pictures. I confess that I was afraid of not being able, of not being able to undo it, because my experience was none. I never liked seeing myself in the pictures. I didn't recognise myself in them. But with Pinch of Heaven Photography it was completely different! Upon arrival, small details made my eyes flicker and the emotion spoke louder!!! The charming space, with unique pieces, special and with a deep meaning. The feeling of being at home... comfortable, relaxed and fascinated, with the choice of makeup, the choice of clothing, the scenery, the colors, the sweets, the textures, the details, the aroma and with a TRUE FAMILY, which taught me to smile... to believe that I can also look beautiful in the photos, this wonderful team that you are. With all this, and more... beyond anything I could imagine... I saw and felt the «MAGIC», in every click, in every word, in every instruction, in every posing during my photo shoot, where my sister was the great star that shone that day. I can only say that I am VERY PROUD, PASSIONATE AND GRATEFUL for your LOVE.
