Frequently Asked questions

NEWBORN Information

Newborn sessions are relaxed and slow-paced as Tracey works around the needs of your newborn baby.

Try to keep things neutral, so for Mum some comfortable trousers or a skirt with a plain black, navy or white top. For Dad’s, jeans or a comfortable pair of trousers, again with a plain t-shirt or jumper.

WHAT TO WEAR Information

Select a colour scheme that complements each other. Achieve a more natural look across the board by picking two primary colours adding softer tones to accent and complete your colour scheme.
Tone down bright colours and remember that lighter clothing looks fresh. Beach photographs look great with denim. A big NO is distracting patterns and try to avoid over accessorising.

PRODUCTS Information

We offer a variety of photographic products, including digital files, photographic prints, frames and wall art.  The timescale of delivery will depend on specific products and individual timescales; your order will be ready within a 4-6 weeks. On booking your session with Adora’bubble Photography you will not be required to choose any products or package. 

Newborn Sessions

WHEN TO BOOK YOUR NEWBORN SESSION?

Tracey recommends booking your newborn session after your 20 week scan.  A date for will be pencilled into the diary around your due date.  The date is flexible, all babies arrive when they are ready.

As a guide, newborn sessions typically take up to two hours depending on how your baby settles.  Please note that Tracey offers the flexibility of having the newborn session at her photography studio or if you prefer, in the comfort of your home.

WHEN WILL MY NEWBORN SESSION TAKE PLACE?

Please let Tracey know when your little bundle arrives – she loves to receive photos too!  And she will confirm your appointment.  Ideally the newborn session should be within the first ten days of your baby’s arrival and preferably  before they are 14 days old. 

Please contact Tracey if you have any questions or if your baby is premature.

 

HOW DO WE PREPARE FOR THE SESSION?

Before the session, please try and keep the baby awake for as long as possible so baby will be ready for a feed on arrival. Dress your baby in something easy to remove and keep their nappy loose to avoid any marks on their skin. If you are breastfeeding your baby, Mum should avoid spicy/acidic/gassy food for 24 hours before the photoshoot. 

DO WE NEED TO BRING ANYTHING?

Tracey has a vast array of wraps, outfits and props which help create her relaxed style of photography. Tracey predominantly uses these to create images you will love in the colour palette of your choice.

If you have a sentimental teddy, a favourite outfit or blanket please bring these with you so we may be able to incorporate these into the shoot to create photographs that are special to your family.

HOW LONG DOES A NEWBORN SESSION LAST?

Newborn sessions can take anywhere from two – four hours as these are entirely baby-led. Your baby’s every need will be our priority to ensure that your baby is comfortable and happy throughout the session.

Tracey only schedules one newborn session on any given day to allow plenty of time to ensure parents and baby are completely relaxed.

Please do not worry if this is the first time your little family will have left the safety of home and it takes you a bit longer to leave the house.

Sometimes it can take baby a little longer to settle, Tracey doesn’t want anyone to clock-watch as the focus is always on your baby and it is important that you feel comfortable and relaxed during the session.

If you are running late  just give Tracey a call to let her know.   Telephone:  07781 119127

Lifestyle Sessions

LOCATION & BEACH PHOTOSHOOTS?

Tracey offers location photoshoots for children, families, couples and pets.   Beach photoshoots are relaxed and families look great dressed in denim (especially teenagers).

We are lucky in Guernsey to have so many of stunning locations such as Pembroke, Petit Bot, Portelet Bay, Moulin Huet beaches, ideal for a photoshoot.   If your are considering including your dog in the photoshoot then remember during the summer months we are limited for access with dogs;  but, there are still some beautiful ones left to use.  Talk to Tracey to discuss what you are looking for and arrange a date in the diary!

HOME PHOTOSHOOTS?

Lifestyle –  home photoshoots are available if you prefer your home to that of a photography studio.  Tracey uses the natural light available in and around your home to create her imagery.  Photoshoots at her Studio will be more of the traditional way with studio lighting and backgrounds.  Lifestyle Photoshoots are available for family, children, toddlers, pets and offer a relaxed photoshoot in the surroundings and comfort of home.

Newborn photography sessions can also be at home if you prefer.  An ideal solution if you have had a C-Section or you do not want to venture out so soon after your little one is born.

DO YOU CAPTURE BABY'S FIRST YEAR?

Tracey offers a  ‘Milestone’ package which captures the first year of your baby’s life over  four photoshoots at 3mths, 6mths, 9mths and 12 months respectively.  All four sessions will document the various stages of the first year.

Use these sessions to document your baby’s first year as a keepsake because time goes by so quickly especially during the first year.

Milestones – Tiny bubbles Package – £350

Please email Tracey for further information or alternatively give her a call to discuss –  07781 119127

Weddings

HOW MANY WEDDINGS DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH A YEAR?

Tracey’s runs a very successful and busy photography business.  Saturdays are one of the busiest days of the week at her studio.  Therefore, she only accepts a maximum of 12 wedding bookings per year, to ensure a personal touch to your wedding.   Tracey will meet you at the venue approximately six weeks prior to your special day to discuss the timings and ‘must have’ photographs and to take a few informal shots of the two of you.  An ideal ice breaker.  So you can prepare for the day.

Please note that Tracey is FULLY BOOKED this year (2020).  Her diary is open for bookings during 2021 and 2022.

Early booking is highly recommended to ensure that Adora’bubble’ photography can photograph your wedding. We therefore STRONGLY recommend that once you have booked your preferred wedding venue and secured the wedding date, you then book all other services, including your photographer, as soon as possible. Please note it is advisable at least a year or more in advance, which may seem like a long time, but like other quality wedding service providers, Tracey does get booked well in advance (2020 was fully booked by December 2019). Get in touch as soon as you can to avoid disappointment.

Like all wedding photographers, we have to work on a “first come, first served” basis. Tracey  undertakes a maximum of twelve weddings per year.  Wedding bookings and availability for 2021 and 2022 will be limited and only CONFIRMED  by Adora’bubble Photography upon receipt of the completed booking form and booking fee of £250.

NB:  An appointment to discuss your forthcoming wedding or a quotation, unfortunately, does not constitute a confirmed wedding booking. Should another couple require the same day – the couple who provides the completed booking form and retainer will be deemed to have booked this day.
