If you're thinking about booking a newborn session, but have a few questions first - take a look at some of our FAQ's below.
Of course, if you still can't find the answer you're looking for, we're always happy to help.
What qualifications do you have?
Take a look at our awards page. There you can see a list of our qualifications, credentials and awards.
Jordan is one of the UK's most highly qualified and leading newborn photographers, having gained his Associateship with the Master Photographers Association specifically in newborn portraiture (one of only 4 in the UK) - among other accolades.
When is the best time to book?
Anytime after you've had your 12 week scan.
Booking during pregnancy is the only way to guarantee a session with us due to the limited time frame in which we have to create newborn portraits.
Additionally, booking during pregnancy allows us enough time to invite you in to the studio for a consultation appointment where we can meet and show you around the studio.
We do however, occasionally have some last minute sessions become available as baby's rarely arrive on their due date. If your baby has already made an appearance, get in touch and we can do our best to accommodate.
I don't know the exact date my baby will arrive. How does this work?
Only 5% of babies arrive on their due date!
We confirm the session date when baby makes an appearance - just let us know as soon as possible and we'll book something in for you.
Our diary is limited to 10 newborn sessions per due month. This allows us the flexibility in our diary, and also means that each client can receive our undivided attention and the service you deserve.
These images cannot be recreated, so we want everything to be perfect - including the experience.
We don't want you to feel as though you have to worry about losing out on your session if your baby doesn't arrive as scheduled (lets be honest, they rarely do)!
How long do the sessions last?
Our sessions can last anything between 2-4 hours. The session is completely baby led, meaning we work at a pace that baby is comfortable with. There is no rushing, and we only book one appointment per day ensuring that you can relax and enjoy the session.
Sessions take place on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays and begin at 10am.
What do I need to bring?
Aside from baby, all you need to bring is plenty of milk (whether thats breast or bottle). Baby will be nude for the duration of the session to enable us to capture their newborn features - we provide all wraps, props, headbands, bonnets and accessories.
Of course, if you have something specific or sentimental in mind please don't to hesitate to ask us for advice on bringing it along.
Are siblings and parents included in the session?
Of course. We encourage siblings and parents to be photographed with the newborn.
We do have to make you aware that our sessions do run on weekdays, as a result do interfere with school hours (unless it's a school holiday).
How do I book?
Booking is made via our online store, as it is set up with limits per due month.
You can select the deposit option, and pay the balance when baby is born - or pay the full session fee upfront.
If you're booking last minute, and baby has already arrived, the full session fee payment is required to secure the date.
How do I order my images?
After your session, we'll invite you back to the studio for your reveal appointment where we will present your images on our large screen TV. At this appointment we'll go through all of your images and start putting a bespoke order together for you.
How much do your products cost?
Our investment page has a pricing guide, which will give you an indication of our costs.
Payment is due upon ordering.
We also offer 0% finance, which allows you to spread the cost over up to 12 months.
There are much cheaper options available. Why should I book with Amplified Studio?
We are aware that in our industry, there are many people who have set up offering newborn portraiture - many for a low cost with all images on USB.
We do not have any interest in competing on price. We are interested in providing exceptional quality portraiture on incredible products with fantastic personal service.
We want to see your images on your wall, not in a drawer!
After all, the memory of your baby as a newborn is worth documenting in the best way possible.
Our boutique, specialist newborn and baby studio is based in Pontypridd town centre (just off Gelliwastad Road), and we offer limited exclusive (by appointment only) photography sessions. The studio is designed to provide a comfortable and fully private experience for new parents and babies, with all the essentials available to hand.
Our sessions are limited, with no more than one newborn session taking place in a day - and just 10 per month. This allows us to create a fully personalised service, and ensures that your images get the full attention they deserve to become fantastic family heirlooms. No detail is missed.
We only use the finest award winning photographic lab in the UK, to handcraft gallery quality products for your home - ensuring that they are built and finished to perfection. They truly are made to last generations. Each item is hand built to order, creating a completely bespoke product.
Additionally, we are home to one of the most highly qualified newborn specialist photographers in all of the UK. So, you have a guarantee that your images will be of an exceptional standard that will stand out from the rest. Our photographer doesn't work alone either. We strongly believe that having a highly trained assistant who is able to pose and position baby safely and comfortably is extremely important - allowing new parents to sit back, relax and enjoy the session.
When you think about how much you would spend on baby items (i.e prams, clothing and gadgets...), or even holidays and designer items for yourselves - and then compare it to the cost of a fully bespoke photography session where you will walk away with stunning products that will add WOW factor to your home and preserve this precious time - is it really that expensive?
I'm still unsure about booking, but don't want to regret it when it's too late.
No problem. Get in touch and ask to book in for a no obligation consultation appointment. We can show you around the studio, you can see and feel our products for yourselves and ask as many questions as you like over a cuppa!
We'd love the opportunity to allow you to come along and see for yourselves. :)
If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
