If you are thinking of a newborn session, please call to schedule your session while you’re still expecting. Pre consultation over the phone allows me to become familiar with you and what you are looking for during your session. I’ll enter your due date in my schedule and squeeze you in when the baby arrives. If your baby has already arrived and you have not booked your session, give me a call and I will still do my best to fit you in. Once your baby arrives, then within the first week is the best time to schedule your session.
The ideal age is around 7-10 days, the younger the better. New babies change every day – we want to capture that sweet, tiny newborn look before it so quickly fades away. At this time the baby is still young enough to be sleepy and “curled up” for bare images, is more likely to stay asleep so that poses may be varied. Once your beautiful newborn starts to get slightly older it can be harder to obtain naked, sleeping images, plus milk spots and baby acne starts to flare up (minor digital retouching is included should this be the situation).
New Born Sessions are held in the comfort of my studio, it simply means that I can control the environment as far at temperature and lighting is concerned and I have all my props readily available. If you have props or special items you want to use, I can incorporate these into the photos. These sessions will take approximately 2-3 hours and during this time I always follow the baby’s lead with lots of time for nappy changes, feeding and most importantly mummy and daddy kisses and cuddles.
Newborn sessions start at $550 plus gst – This price will cover the 2-3 photographic session and you will be able to select 12 high resolution images on disk to keep. Plus the same 12 images will be provided at a low resolution so you can share with friend and family via social media.
