This depends on what package you have chosen. All Studio Newborn Sessions are held in my home studio, here in Kirkwood, Gladstone.
Outdoor Sessions can be held at your favourite local park, field, bushland or beach. And Lifestyle Sessions, in the comfort of your own home or backyard!
The best time to photograph a newborn baby is when they are 6-14 days old. After this time, newborn babies are a little harder to settle and things like colic and baby acne can start to flare up. It is best to book as soon as possible to secure your booking. You can contact me at any time during your pregnancy to give me an estimated due date. After, I will make a tentative booking and when you arrive home from the hospital with your baby you can contact me to arrange a suitable time and day for your session.
Absolutely! Your newborns health and safety is of my highest priority. I have been immunised against whooping cough and all immunisations are up to date. I also hold my Certificate with the Academy of Newborn Photography and am fully trained in first aid and CPR. Your family and baby's safety whilst in my care are 100% priority during your session.
Newborn Photography Sessions can take 2-4hours, Taking a relaxed approach with baby, allowing enough time for feeding and comforting.
On the day of your session, all I ask for you to bring along is your general going out essentials. Have your baby dressed in something loose and easy to remove if already asleep upon arrival. Dress yourselves in neutral comfortable clothing. (preferably no blacks, or bold logos and pictures) Your outfits also make for beautiful photos so let's make sure the colours you're wearing don't distract.
YES! Immediate family and siblings are welcome in all sessions. During your newborn session, the family and siblings shots are captured first, you may wish to then have dad or a carer to take your other children away for the remainder of the session, or welcome to relax in the lounge and watch a movie on Netflix :)
While I love capturing newborns with their beautiful Grandies, my home studio is only small, catering for just the immediate families visiting for their photo's. If you would like to include extended family in your session, we can plan a small outdoor session to accommodate for this after :)
Your gallery will be ready to view and select your favourite images as per your package within 3 weeks. If you have ordered prints allow another week for your beautiful products to arrive, ready for delivery or collection.
No. The subtle editing that I do to your images is part of my artistic style & therefore I am unable to supply unedited files, as is the case with all respected professional photographers.
No, after your session I process your photos and upload a private gallery for you to view and select your favourites as per your chosen package. You then have the option of purchasing additional images from your gallery.
Once you have been in touch and we have discussed your chosen session. I will pop you through an email and invoice with payment details. Payment can be made via bank transfer, PayPal or cash on the day of your session. Payment plans can also be arranged prior to your session being held.
