Baby Portraits

My baby photo sessions capture beautiful portraits of your baby.  Sessions take place in my studio in Swords and need to be booked in advance.  The most common question that I'm asked by parents is - when is the best time to photograph my baby?  

The answer is easy. 

Newborn shoots should ideally take place within 10 days after birth - this will enable me to capture your new arrival at their tiniest. After this time you baby loses its new born look and is not as sleepy making it much more difficult to obtain beautiful photographs. Baby acne can also start to develop after this time.  

After the newborn stage it is best to wait until about 20 weeks or until such a time when your baby can hold his/her head up unsupported for a few minutes.  This simply enables more variety in poses and ultimately better photos.  Any baby acne has usually disappeared by this stage also.  

For older babies, it's definitely best to schedule their photo session when they can sit up unsupported but before they can crawl and definitely before they can walk.

NB - Terms & Conditions for high resolution digital files - Digital files supplied are high resolution jpg’s @300dpi with an aspect ratio of 3:2.  Once digital files have been released by David Duignan Photography for download by the client (i.e. delivered), they cannot be changed, exchanged or refunded.
The client accepts that when printing from any digital file, cropping may occur depending on the print type/shape they have chosen to print thus leading to a loss of some of the image when printed. Prints with an aspect ratio of 3:2 will result in no cropping.

Digital files are supplied colour corrected and 'print ready'.  David Duignan Photography will not be responsible for the inferior printing quality from third party suppliers.  

Digital files may NOT be used for commercial gain or altered in any way by the client e.g. application of filters, re-touching, cropping etc.
