There's nothing better than the excitement and pure love that these sessions exude. It's perhaps the most important and transformative time in your life - 100% worth capturing.
These sessions are cosy, slow and baby-led. This means that there's no time frame and no forcing bub into poses. We go with the flow, giving baby time to feed, settle and sleep.
These sessions are a mix of family portraits, documentary-style shots and close-up details of your babe. Whilst a sleeping baby is ideal, things don’t always go to plan! I’ve done many newborn shoots with babies wide awake the entire time. That’s A-OK too.
It’s great to do these shoots within the first couple of weeks while your baby is still a tightly curled newborn squish (before they really start to wake up to the world!). When you enquire, tell me your due date and I’ll pencil you in for 10 days afterwards. I’m super flexible so if bub comes early/late just let me know and we’ll move the shoot!
Once you have read my price guide, fill out my enquiry form and let me know your preferred session date and location!
We'll find a date for your shoot. Pay a deposit to secure your booking. I'll email you a location & style guide to help with the finer details, as well as a questionnaire to answer.
All you have to do is show up and be yourself!
I'll send you your final gallery 2-3 weeks after your shoot date. Choose your photos - I'll then send them to you in high-res. Download, back-up and share with friends and family!
Select photos for printing. You'll receive your box of goodies 2-4 weeks after you make your selection.
Let me know what you think of your photos! Leave me a Google review and tag me in your socials.
How do I book?
Send me an enquiry via the Contact page or shoot me a message on Instagram or via email. Tell me a bit about yourself! What type of shoot are you after and when would you like it to happen?
How do I pay?
I take a 50% deposit to secure your booking. The remainder is to be paid in the week leading up to your session. Payment plans are available upon request.
How do I receive my photos?
I will edit your photos soon after your shoot. I will then email you a link to an online gallery, free for you to download, within 3-4 weeks of your session date.
What if my newborn is unsettled and not having a good day?
This happens and it's totally okay! Patience is key. I don't rush these sessions - I don't schedule more than one newborn session per day for this reason. Some of my most beautiful newborn sessions have involved bubs cluster feeding every 15 minutes. Things don't go by the book but that's what makes these sessions special. Whether your baby is asleep or awake (or ideally a combination of both!) the photos will be beautiful and a precious reminder of this time!
Do you have a client wardrobe?
For newborns - yes! I have a selection of rompers in 000 and 0000. I have a Highlight on my Instagram page ('Client Wardrobe') where you'll find my collection. For grown-ups - no. I'm a big believer in personal style. I don't want to photograph people in cookie-cutter outfits chosen by me. Choose something that you love and feel good in! I will email you a Style Guide PDF when you book to give you some pointers.
What time of day do you shoot?
Newborn sessions usually take place in the morning, around 11am. However if the light in your home is better in the afternoon, please let me know and we'll schedule it accordingly!
Can siblings and pets be involved?
100%. Fur-siblings are always a highlight for me (your dog and I will be best friends by the end of the day).
