Our studio has a specific natural based colour palette to ensure the look is always unique, natural, timeless and classic (with a hint of colour!). Due to space, person limits apply per session. All digitals are delivered via post-session in person meeting, to select your final edited products (pre-booked to take place approx 2-3 weeks after the session). All collections can be placed on a payment plan via direct with us through instalments or PayRight (minimum spend $1095 for PayRight). Payment is required 1 week prior to session, with at least a 50 percent deposit to confirm the session.

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO BOOK A NEWBORN SESSION?

It is never too early to book a newborn session, however we recommend to book the session 3 months before your due date. The newborn session generally is scheduled to be between 5 - 14 days after the birth date and is adjusted once the baby is born. We only schedule two to three newborns per week, and photograph newborns on Fridays and Saturdays. Usually the best time of the day for newborn photoshoots is either 8am or 1pm at their nap times.

 

DO I NEED TO BRING ANYTHING?

 

For newborns, please bring some nappies, napkins, wet ones and bottles for milk and formula (if you do not breastfeed). I allow time for feeding to keep the baby nice and sleepy; so it is important to come prepared. If you would like anything small incorporated, please let me know a few days prior to the session for planning and we will work out a way to incorporate it in the session for you.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?

 

As we know, newborns are unpredictable little beings! They don't have a watch. I allow up to 2.5 hours for the session to allow as much time as we can for the baby to be sleepy, fed and also to be posed. Newborns don't like being forced or rushed into anything, so I take our time for safety to ensure they are comfortable. Please do not plan anything after the session, as sometimes things can run behind. It is important to come on time as well.

 

WHAT ARE THE STUDIO SAFETY AND HEALTH MEASURES?

 

I am vaccinated against whooping cough and I have heaps of disposable gloves, masks and hand sanitiser in my studio. If you wish for me to use the mask and/or gloves I am more than happy to do this for you. I use hand sanitiser each time I am about to pick up your newborn after handling anything else in the studio. All wraps and materials are washed after every use, with props being wiped down with anti-bacterial wipes. 

 

I diffuse lavender before and during each session to calm the baby and it also cleanses the air as it is anti-bacterial, I also play white noise to calm the baby which has been proven to be one of my best-kept secrets (not anymore a secret..). The lavender is completely natural and chemical - free. For safety, I use weights and weighted pillows at the bottom of my props. I encourage parents to sit beside their newborn within arms reach for safety and comfort reasons. I never leave a newborn unattended. If I notice a baby does not like the pose they are being placed in, I simply change this to a suitable pose they are comfortable in - it is all about the communication between myself, the parents and the baby.

HOW MANY SET UPS OF THE NEWBORN / FAMILY ARE IN THE SESSION?

As every newborn is different, set ups can vary. With the smallest newborn collection, a maximum of 3 set ups is permitted. With the rest of our collections, between 3 and 5 set ups for the newborn are used and 1 for family. However, sometimes newborns can get a little stressed; and if we notice this, we reduce the set ups (quality over quantity) as the more moving and changing occurs, the more stressed a baby can be if they are already unsettled.

SITTER SESSIONS

Sitter sessions are for children between ages of 3 months and 3 years old. The session is designed as a "mini" session as it enables you to carry out multiple sessions into a final product such as an album. It is recommended to do a sitter session at 3,6,9,12,18 months as a "timeline". We give discounts for return sitter sessions. If you have come to us for the same child prior, please let us know as you may be eligible for a special deal.
