Maternity and Newborn Session Package | $1200

Maternity sessions are all about capturing the love that bonds you and your partner, and your new baby.  It’s a wonderful way to celebrate your pregnancy and prepare for the arrival of this new person.  Maternity sessions are also held in my natural light studio and are best in the last trimester around 34-36 weeks.  Outdoor sessions can be arranged if requested.

Your maternity photo shoot includes a 1 hour in studio session and between 10-15 edited full size images on USB with a set of 5×7 inch prints also presented to you in a stylish keepsake portrait box.  Please refer to above for your newborn session details.

 


Baby Session | $650

(50%  deposit required at time of booking)

Are best held when your baby is sitting up and not walking.  This is a wonderful age to capture as babies are full of personality and smiles.  I like to capture babies with little or no clothing on as I really feel this captures the essence of your little one without any distractions.

Your baby photo shoot includes 1 – 1 1/2 hour in studio session and between 10-15 edited full size images on USB with a set of 5×7 inch prints presented to you in a stylish keepsake box. 

Also included is a small on-line preview 3-4 days after your session and approximately 3-4 weeks after your session a password protected on-line gallery will be made available so you can share with family and friends.

When to Book Your Newborn Session

In order to make sure that you secure a booking for your newborn, it is very important to contact me to reserve a date while you are still pregnant.  It is best that newborns are photographed at 1 week of age.

 

 

Newborn Session Timing

Age plays a very important role in the look and feel of your newborn images. Once your baby arrives, then within the first week is the best time to book your session.  It is best that newborns are photographed at 1 week of age (ideally between 6-10 days) to achieve those gorgeous curly sleepy poses that we all adore.  After two weeks of age, they are more likely to get disturbed while sleeping and become challenging to settle. 

Once your booking is secured, I ask that you notify me within 48 hours of baby’s arrival (short email or text message is absolutely fine) so that I can clear my schedule and provide you with a few options for a session date and time.


Newborn Session Duration

It is not uncommon for your newborn session to last 2-3 hours or more, allowing plenty of time for feed and comfort.  It’s all about ‘the baby’, so I will never rush a session and will take as much time as we need. 

Your baby will need a very big feed just prior to the session so that he or she is nice and sleepy.  We can also expect a few ‘top up’ feeds throughout the session, due to the warmth and stimulation.  I always provide a light refreshment for the parents too. 

 

Newborn Styling

I prefer to photograph your newborn in their beautiful bare skin, so there is no need to bring clothes.  I also photograph parent connection and siblings photos, so I suggest you keep clothing simple and shy away from bold patterns, large stripes and written logos.  I recommend keeping everyone in solid neutrals not to overwhelm the tiny baby.  Please no black clothing and do not all wear white, complimentary colours work best.  I’m happy to discuss in detail any wardrobe choice prior to your session.

 

Custom Prints | From $20.00

Desk prints start at $20.00 and large wall prints from $95.00.  Canvas and framed prints also available.  Please ask Kath for a full price list.
