In the Studio
Newborn sessions are held in my home studio at Fairy Hill, 2470 NSW. The studio is open for Newborn sessions Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Thursdays. The absolute best time to photograph newborns is within their first 14 days. This gives me the best chance of capturing those lovely sleepy curly shots of your baby. After two weeks it becomes a little harder to settle and calm bub for photographing however newborn sessions are still available after this time.
Due to the unexpected nature of birth I take estimate bookings of the time of your due date. Once you arrive home from hospital with your new baby please contact me as soon as possible to arrange your newborn session.
Newborn sessions start between 9am and 10am depending on the time of the year and generally take from 2 to 4 hours to allow enough time for feeding, cuddles and settling. The studio is kept snug and warm all year round to ensure baby is comfortable when being photographed with little or no clothing. So please ensure everyone else is dressed in something cool and comfortable.
In every newborn session I strive to cover images of baby only, baby with mum, baby with dad, baby with both parents, baby with any siblings and the whole family together. However the total number of poses and setups will depend solely on the babies nature on the day. Your babies safety and comfort is my greatest importance on the day so I will not force or discomfort your baby for any one particular pose. All babies, just like adults have individual ways they do and don't like to sleep.
The safety and happiness of your baby is my absolute priority. Myself, and all members of my home, are fully immunised and up to date with all newborn vaccination requirements. I have completed training with a certified trainer on the safety and needs of newborns and at no time will I ever leave your baby unattended or unsupported.
Our home is completely smoke and pet free, all my wraps, blankets, head wear and newborn clothing's are washed with 100% natural products to minimise the chance of any reaction on their very delicate skin.
There is nothing so beautiful and so perfect than your newborn child. But I also know that from the moment they are in your arms everything turns just a little upside down while you adjust to this very precious addition to the family. So to help make your photo session as smooth and relaxing as possible I will send you a Customised Session Information Pack to help guide you once you have made your tentative booking.
