FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
When should I book my newborn session?
I recommend booking in the early stages of pregnancy as my bookings are managed by allocating a number of shoots per calendar month. It is also great thing for get that one item off your newborn “to do” list. If you have a scheduled delivery, it is recommended to schedule your newborn ahead of time.
What is the best age to photograph a newborn?
I recommend having newborns photographed between 6-14 days. This is when newborns are most comfortable, sleepy and content during a session. After this, newborns can become more alert and sometimes develop wind and reflux issues which could interfere in capturing those gorgeous sleepy poses.
Where are newborn sessions are held?
Newborn sessions are held in my home studio in Malvern East, Melbourne. It is the perfect environment to capture your newborn photographs as it is warm, calm and peaceful – perfect for your newborn baby. Newborn sessions are held Monday – Fridays and some weekends (fees apply). The studio is the perfect place to sit back, relax and watch your newborn’s first photoshoot.
How long does a newborn session last?
Newborn sessions last between 2 – 3 hours to ensure there is enough time for lots of cuddles, feeds and everyone is nice and relaxed. Newborns tend to get thirsty during a session as it is warm, so if you are bottle feeding I recommended that you bring extra milk.
Do you have props (e.g baskets, baskets, hats etc.)?
Yes. The studio is filled with beautiful newborn clothing, textured blankets, wraps and props which are all available to you during your session. When you book my session we will have a discussion about what colours you like and I can style to suit. I do prefer to keep newborn photographs minimalistic to ensure your images remain timeless.
Can parents and/or siblings be in newborn sessions?
Yes you can. In newborn sessions, I encourage both parents to participate in the photo session and capture any older siblings as well.
What happens after a session?
After 4-5 weeks you will receive a link to your private online gallery. This is the perfect way to select images you want to print and create any albums as well. This gallery can also be shared family and friends.
Do you offer gift certificates?
Yes, please contact me.
My newborn is already two weeks old, have I missed out?
While it is ideal that your newborn is within 6-14 days old, I have photographed many older newborns that were 5 – 8 weeks old. As every newborn is different, I can still capture amazing images by changing positing, poses, etc. Please contact me to discuss further.
