When to book
Ideally, arrange your session during your pregnancy. I usually book out my newborn slots 4 weeks in advance. Feel free to contact me at any stage of your pregnancy and I will be happy to discuss and book your session. Upon booking completion, I will give you a provisional booking date within 7 days of your due date and once your baby arrives, I will adjust our session date again.
When to photograph
The best time to photograph newborn babies is between 7 and 14 days of life. Smaller babies (5/6 pounds) may be photographed at 12-14 days, while bigger babies should be photographed at 7-10 days of age.
What to expect from your newborn session
Newborn session takes anywhere between 3-4 hours. This allows plenty of time for feeding, changing and settling breaks your baby may need. I will not rush this process in any way. We will be photographing your baby on its own as well as including siblings and parent shots.
Please apply your make up and do your hair to your liking. A professional make up artist is available to book at additional charge. Please enquire about this service when booking your session.
I understand that new mummies can go through a difficult recovery, feeling tired and delicate. I have developed great post production skills and whenever necessary I can remove any signs of stress of the first few weeks of birth. While the baby is a bundle of perfection, it is a difficult time for you so rest assured you will look as vibrant and fresh as your baby.
All viewing and ordering sessions are held at the studio 15 days after your photo session where you will have a chance to view your gallery and discuss wall art product options.
What to bring along
Nappies, pacifier, formula
Some days your baby may not be in the right mood for a photography session. If this becomes apparent after the first hour of the session I will offer to reschedule at a future time for no extra charge. Contact me
