NEWBORN SESSIONS

When is the best time for a newborn session?

The best time to photograph newborns is between 7-14 days old while baby is still sleepy and can be easily curled up into squishy adorable little poses. If necessary this window can be stretched to around 21 days.

 

What if my baby is older then 2 weeks?

It is not too late! If you baby is between 2 and 6 weeks old I recommend an "older newborn session". We still go through a similar flow - we do family, sibling and single shots using variety of props but as older babies are more alert and harder to settle we might not go through as many set ups (as we would with a younger newborn), we might not be able to achieve certain poses or your baby might be wrapped to help her/him calm down. I have successfully photographed babies as old as 6 weeks so if you missed the 2 wks window do not worry it is still possible to capture those precious moments - we just need a touch more patience ;-)

 

can you do the newborn session at our house?

90% of my newborn sessions are done in my studio in Ferny Grove where I have a total control over my lighting and a huge selection of props to use. Never say never though -if you really have your heart set on a home session or for some reason you are not able to make it to the studio please get in touch and we might be able to organise a home session.

Do you take photos of the parents and siblings too?

Yes! Every full newborn session include photos of baby alone, family photos and sibling photos. After the family photos are done older siblings go home so the remainder of the session will be focused on newborn alone in a calm and quiet environment.

WHen do i book my newborn session?

As soon as possible! My calendar fills up pretty quick so the sooner you let me know the better. I put a mark in the calendar around your due date. We decide on the day of the session after your baby has arrived.

do we have to bring our own props? WHAT DO I BRING WITH US?

I supply all props, backdrops, wraps, hats, headbands everything that you see in my images i have available in my studio for your session. I have an amazing prop collection. I have sourced unique props from all over the world for my clients.

DO I SEE ALL PHOTOS FROM MY SESSION?

After your newborn session you will see a private gallery of around 40-50 images and you will be able to pick your favourites.

 

Are you immunised against Whooping Cough?

Absolutely, as is my immediate family.

 

 

Maternity SESSIONS

 

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME FOR A maternity SESSION?

Best time to BOOK your session is as soon as possible! My calendar fills up pretty quick so the sooner you let me know the better. Best time to hold your session is between 30 and 36 weeks pregnant. I offer both studio and outdoor options. You decide which style suits your family better.

 

WHat do i wear to my session?

After you book your session you will receive a session guide with tips on what to wear. I will help you pick something from your wearable or shop for a new outfit. I also have a wide range of maternity gowns you are more then welcome to use for your session.

 

Can I include my family in any of the images?

Yes! We want to create images that will stay with your family forever so including your partner and other kids is a great idea! If you are after a more family oriented session I will take photos of you alone, with your partner, with your kids and then family photos.

 

I feel uncomfortable with my body, should i still do the pregnancy shoot?

Yes! Yes! Yes! I know this time of your life is a bit tricky so you might feel a little insecure about your changing body but I got you! I will guide you through the posing process. I will put you in the most flattering poses and light to hide the areas you might not be 100% happy with.

 

DO I SEE ALL PHOTOS FROM MY SESSION?

After your pregnancy session you will see a private gallery of around 30 images and you will be able to pick your favourites.

 

 

FAMILY SESSIONS

 

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME FOR A FAMILY SESSION?

Best time to book your family session is EVERY DAY. Most outdoor family sessions are shoot in the afternoon between 3pm and 6pm depending on the time of the year to avoid hush light and get the most stunning soft 'golden hour' glow. I know it can be tricky with little ones but believe me it is worth sneezing an extra nap and risking a later bed time to get the best images as the time of your session really does matter.

 

WHat do we wear to our session?

After you book your session you will receive a session guide with tips on what to wear. I will help you pick something from your wearable or shop for a new outfits. My clients often send me photos of their outfits and together we come up with the wardrobe that will make you look your best.
