I offer a discounted bundle package if booking your maternity and newborn photo sessions at the same time. I promise to create a comfortable and enjoyable space for you to document and celebrate your pregnancy so far. When reflecting on your maternity gallery, I hope you feel beautiful and proud of yourself. Newborn sessions can take some time and that's okay. During our session, I expect baby will require settling, snuggles and possibly a feed. I will always guide your family through posing and prompts during our time together. I want your images to feel organic and my gentle direction will help you feel comfortable enough to connect with one another. Let's capture the candid and the posed images of your and your family together. I offer newborn photography in a variety of different styles. This can take place in my studio, in your own home or in the beautiful outdoors at sunset. I will always guide you through posing and prompts during our time together.

I have a wonderful gallery full of locations I am constantly visiting with families which I will share with you when your booking is made. It is so tricky to pick a space for your photoshoot which is why I have put together a gallery full of visual examples of our local, gorgeous landscapes. If you have a private property of your own which you would prefer, I am always excited to photograph you and your family somewhere which is special to you and your loved ones. My studio provides a clean and stress free space to utilise for your newborn session. Simply bring your baby and I will do the rest. My client closet and props are available for your use to create the image you are trying to achieve.
Ready to book or organise something together? Send me a message or an email with some details of what you are wanting to have photographed. I'll send a list of available dates for you and your family. Once a date for both your maternity and newborn session is organised, I will send a welcome email to you with all the details to move forward with your booking. I'll make contact before our organised date to double check all our details together. After our time together you can expect to receive a preview gallery within 7 days. Your preview gallery will be a small selection of your entire gallery which will be delivered within 4 weeks of our session date. I don't place a limit on the amount of images I deliver for each gallery. I will sift through your images and make sure every single 'best' image is edited professionally and included in your final gallery. Your gallery will be delivered by both a private online gallery and a custom USB sent to your home address.
A variety of dresses are available to every mother to wear during the time of her session. I have a gallery showcasing the dresses available which will be sent to you upon booking. I'll prepare and clean each dress with every session. I will take care of the preparation and cleaning of each dress. A large selection of outfits are available for your baby to wear in sizes from tiny newborn to 18 months.
When should I book?
For your pregnancy, I usually recommend booking your session between 33 weeks until 38 weeks. Ideally, we want your bump to be visible without being too uncomfortable. Every mother is different and will have a different idea on when will suit her best to photograph her pregnancy. There is no right or wrong answer. For your newborn session, there is no exact time frame where you 'have' to photography your baby, I have captured baby's up until about six weeks of age, it's never too late! Sometimes life gets in the way, those first couple of weeks is exhausting and the thought of fitting in a photography session may be the last thing you feel like doing. Typically, I recommend scheduling your newborn baby photo shoot about 14 to 21 days after your due date. Once baby is born we then review your booked date and time for your newborn session and make any reschedules if needed. 5 to 10 days is the ideal age for a newborn portrait session as babies this age are pretty chilled, sleep most of the time and curl up easily in those gorgeous poses. Once baby hits two weeks old they tend to be more alert, and outgrow that fragile newborn look. Babies older than 14 days are not so malleable and tiny. Slightly older babies are likely to be more alert and aware of their surroundings. So photo sessions with older babies can result in more ‘eyes open’ shots. Whichever age you choose to photograph your newborn will be beautiful.
