Newborn & Baby sessions… and the days to come

My heartfelt congratulations on an incredibly precious time in your life.

You stare at your newborn, wanting to memorise every single feature and to be fully present in these new moments with your new family.

I’m here to help you preserve these memories so that you can pass them down as a family legacy in the future. The following FAQs should cover most of your questions about these sessions.

Questions & Answers

What will be captured?

Little fingers, little toes, fine eyelashes... I will get all the details you hope to remember in the future.

Please see 'Investment' for more on the different types of sessions available.

01

Prints & Products

I encourage you print something out. Prints have a tangible, weighty presence that digital doesn't. I want you to have physical products that last the test of time.

Unmatched detail and colour gamut available in Semi Gloss, Matte Art and Fine Art prints at affordable prices.

When to have the shoot?

NEWBORNS - THE '10 DAY RULE'

Why is newborn photography captured within such a small time frame?

A newborn has nearly 300 bones & cartilage pieces, which after the 10-14days mark, start to fuse together into calcified bone, which makes it much harder for them to return to that in-the-womb position they’ve been in for the last 9 months.

That being said, every baby is different, and it depends on their individual growth speed rather than a widely spread “rule” whether or not they are safely able to participate in a true newborn session.

NEWBORNS - IS THERE REALLY A DIFFERENCE?

Yes, there is a difference between images created from 2 days new, 2 weeks new, and 2 months new. However, none is BETTER than the others. It's just DIFFERENT. Precious memories will be captured at each point.

It really is your choice; don't feel pressured to schedule a shoot when you don't feel ready.

90-MINUTE SESSION

This session includes baby poses AND a mini family session that I'm known for.

I will capture you in your home, the space where you feel most comfortable.

You will walk away with gentle and timeless images that show what you and your family looked like at this unique time in life.

Sessions cost $275 and come with a complimentary torn-edge Fine Art Print. Prints and products (including digital files) are purchased separately. There is no minimum purchase requirement with my services.

60-MINUTE SESSION

This is purely a posed baby session. I will capture your baby in a variety of poses and outfits, depending on his or her temperament at the time of the shoot.

Sessions cost $195, and come with a complimentary torn-edge Fine Art Print. Prints and products (including digital files) are purchased separately. There is no minimum purchase requirement with my services.

OLDER NEWBORNS

I lean towards older baby sessions because of the 'newborn chub' that they put on!

Ava (pictured above) was photographed at 21 days/3 weeks when she had put on some weight and filled out her onesies a little more, and had a more regular sleeping and feeding schedule.

And the days to come...

Your photographs deserve to live in Fine Art Albums rather than be relegated to a digital folder that no one ever opens.
