Babies have a wonderful ability to pretty much do what they want in those last few weeks and first few days out in the world, so it's best to give some thought as to how you would like your session to come together.
Would you like to capture those First 48 hours in Birthcare or hospital? Or would you prefer to wait until you get home to have your newborn photos taken as a Lifestyle Session? If you would like Lifestyle Session at home then would you like to include some posed/wraps photos or just keep it natural?
If you are still pregnant and you have time for a maternity session why not opt for a Bump-Baby package. This is a great option that is really popular.
Below are the options available :
Each package is special in its own way, so it's best to have a chat with me so we can get an idea of what you feel most comfortable with in preparation for your session.
"Thank you for our amazing photos to cherish for a lifetime. It's not easy keeping a newborn calm for a photoshoot but even through his tantrums you were nothing but patient and assisted with ideas of calming.
Nice relaxed photoshoot and you made the experience great. Highly recommend."
When should I book for my newborn session?
Do you come to our home?
Do you have props or wraps?
Can other family members be in the photos too?
How long does the session take?
When do we get our photos?
This is entirely up to what works with your family.
Some families book within the first 10 days of baby being born and some a few weeks after.
Have a think about the style of photos you would like and lets have a chat and we can work on the best timing for your family.
Keep in mind the posed, sleepy and wrapped photos that focus on the detail of the features is best done before 10 days. This is when baby is usually more settled/sleepy and doesn't mind being handled by someone they have never met.
The older they get the more awake and observant they become.
Yes I do! I find doing sessions at home pretty special and everyone is more relaxed.
In saying that I am also happy to shoot on location, if you have a special place your family like to visit we can look at that as an option.
Yes I have a basket and some wraps in a variety of colours. When you book we will discuss whether you would like to include these. They come at an additional charge of $75. Sessions with wrapping and posing can take a bit longer than a Lifestyle Session.
Absolutely! I encourge the whole family together. I focus on siblings and parents. I am always happy to include extended family however this can incur an extra charge of $50 depending on the number of additional members.
Typically I am with you for 2 hours +
I allow time for changes, extra feeds and settling. I dont rush my sessions with you.
Sessions with wrapping and styling can sometimes take a bit longer.
I do my best to get your photos to you within 2 weeks. There are times that this is not possible however I will communicate this with you if needed. If you require the images sooner it's best to let me know.
