Newborns

I love photographing precious newborns, the opportunity to document a new little person is truly inspiring. I have the ability to sooth and gently handle a newborn and aim to create portraits that you will cherish forever. I love babies, their kissable lips, dreamy smiles, cute button noses and gorgeous squishy hands and toes.  A newborn photo session will be a special milestone in your baby’s life.

I am here to capture the beginning of your bundle of joy’s life, they will be sleepy, squishy and small, every elements of an adored newborn. I will capture the love that already exists in such a tiny person.

Baby sessions are never timed and are in a “go with the flow” format, usually lasting about 3-4 hours, allowing plenty of time for feeding, soothing and a variety of poses for your unique gallery of images.

I adore having the ability to capture new life and all the finest details of your little one… I love people saying I’m like a baby whisperer and so gentle.

Don’t let these moments pass you by, if you are expecting a baby, please contact me for more information.

When Should I Book My Session?

As soon as possible. It’s best to book now to ensure you are able to get a slot. For newborns I will pencil in your due date and once baby arrives and you contact me, we’ll then schedule the actual session date/time. I only take a limited number of newborns per month. It is best to capture newborn photos within the first couple of weeks (preferably between 6-14 days as babies tend to sleep more soundly).

What Is Included In The Session Fee?

The session fee covers the sitting and use of my large selection of props and accessories and of course a cuppa! Sessions are held at my studio with a selection of choices to make your session unique and personal. Prints, digital images etc… are purchased separately.

What to expect during the session

I will create a warm, peaceful environment during the session. After booking a newborn session you will receive an information email of how the day will run, I will ask that you aim to be at the studio before baby’s next feed in order to get baby comfortable and fed.

Mummies and daddies can sit back and relax and even sneak in a nap – we all know how tired we are in the first few weeks!

Please let me know beforehand if you wish for siblings, as well as mummy and daddy shots to be included to help me plan your session. I will aim to to capture these throughout the session depending on how the session goes, however I will focus on the baby first. This is a very special photo opportunity.

Generally baby will be unclothed – this is to capture the gorgeous newborn wrinkles. I do have several wraps and props that will be used. If you have any special teddies or blankets that you would like to incorporate into the session, please bring these along. It’s lovely to have an even more personal touch.

The session may last upto 4 hours, you can always bring a snack or even a book with you. Getting a baby to sleep before posing takes time, extra feeds may be needed to reassure baby they are safe. We will take their lead. As nature is, your gorgeous newborn will wee and poo over the props, not to worry…. this is to be expected, they all do it, if anything it’s just a giggle and a moment to remember.

I want your session to be a special experience, it may be your first family outing, and therefore an unforgettable moment.
