The newborn experience
WELCOME LITTLE ONE
Moments that you will remember forever
The Newborn Experience
How beautiful and precious are those first moments with your little one? You will notice that they will grow so quickly, you’d rather stop the time for a moment to take everything in.
This newborn experience is exactly that! Documenting those beautiful tiny features, so that you will be able to remember them forever. This package is for everybody with a baby that has just been born until one year old! We all know how family life sometimes can be, so it’s okay to plan this later on.
During this experience, I will be documenting you at home, outdoors or at the hospital to really capture you as a family. From the cuddle moments on the sofa or perhaps on your bed to bathing and feeding. Which is of course optional!
The most important part is that you feel comfortable and that you enjoy your beautiful family.
Breastfeeding photos are always optional!
*Each session includes a complimentary meet & greet before you book!
Frequently Asked Questions
Before the day of the photoshoot, we will already have communicated by email, text or over the phone. We will meet at the preferred location and have a bit of a chat to get to know eachother a bit better! Once the nerves have passed, I like to start easy with some simple movements to make you feel comfortable with the camera and me. As things progress, I might come a bit closer with my camera for the more intimate shots. During the photoshoots we will have lots of chats and laughs! When we are both happy with the amount of photos, we round the experience up. After which we will both leave the location on our own terms
Usually around an hour! Unless communicated differently.
I always schedule in some extra time to have a bit of a chat and to make everybody comfortable.
I always recommend wearing something in which you feel comfortable and confident!
This will show on the photos.
However, whether you want to have a specific style or you’re just unsure about what to wear:
I’m happy to give you recommendations beforehand!
Only if you give me permission to do so!
I would never, ever use images without your permission. This is something that we will discuss before the shoot, but also afterwards. If you agree with using some of your images on social media, I would only like to use the ones you truly feel comfortable with!
The joys of living in Scotland!
I will keep a close eye on the weather forecast.
If things look like to turn for the worst, I will give you a call straight away with various options to reschedule.
I’m so glad I did it.
Marieke is lovely, professional and made us feel comfortable straight away
so there was no awkwardness as she snapped away as we went about our day.
I love her photo-documentary style and we got so many beautiful pictures that we’re finding it hard to decide which ones will be printed and framed!
If you’re unsure about a newborn shoot, I say go for it and ask Marieke to capture some truly special moments for you,
as she did for us.''
We’ve done a breastfeeding photoshoot outdoors,
and I felt like just hanging out with a friend in the park.
Such an intimate moment and I’m glad she was there not only capturing
but eternizing our moment.
She’s great at what she does and you won’t regret of choosing her.''
