Pre Session Consultation
During your session
View your photos
After a week or two your images will be ready for viewing on your own private online gallery. From here you are able to pick your favourite images and decide on what package or collection you will select to create memorable album or wall art.
In your private gallery, there is a shop for you to view all the amazing products should you wish to add any announcement cards, prints, frames, canvas, woodblocks or purchase mini albums for grandparents.
I also provide one on one assistance if you require help with designing wall collages if required.
Collect your albums and wall art
When your images, albums and wall art are ready and printed I will contact you to arrange a time to collect your order.
I love the joy and excitement when clients collect everything. You get to hold and see your stunning album or beautiful art work in person. Clients always state they're thrilled they went through with their newborn session as they grow so quick and you can never get that moment in time back. Best of all my packages not only include digital images but you can get either an album or prints.
WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY NEWBORN SESSION?
WHERE ARE NEWBORN SESSIONS HELD?
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 to that one item off your newborn "to do" list.
Newborn sessions are held in my home studio in Malvern East, Melbourne. The studio is the perfect environment as it is warm, calm and has the best natural light, the perfect mix to capturing amazing newborn photographs. The studio is open Monday to Fridays and newborn sessions generally start in the morning only.
WHAT'S THE BEST AGE TO for a NEWBORN shoot?
HOW LONG DOES A NEWBORN SESSION LAST?
Newborn sessions last between 1.5-3 hours. All newborns are different and they dictate the session and duration of the shoot. Some need more cuddles, settling, feeding or changing and that is ok. I can ensure you that we will capture more than enough memories and images to create timeless art and albums.
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.
ARE PARENTS & SIBLINGS INCLUDED?
DO WE GET DIGITAL IMAGES?
All my packages include digital images as well as a product. You can select to have an album or your prints in a keepsake box. To view my packages, please fill out the form on my pricing page.
Yes everyone is included at no additional cost. I always encourage parents to be involved as they're the images that have the most love and emotion. Also when we get old and look back at photographs we will always gravitate to images with our parents as a family. They are the classic timeless images. As parents we need to exist in our images and create family history.
DO YOU HAVE WRAPS AND PROPS?
Yes. The studio is filled with beautiful newborn wraps, textured blankets, and simple props for you to use during your session. Before your photo session we will have a pre session consultation to discuss styling and preferred colour palette. My style is very classic, clean and minimalistic, I always ensure your photographs will remain timeless.

HOW DO WE BOOK A SESSION?
MY NEWBORN IS ALREADY OVER 14 DAYS OLD, HAVE I MISSED OUT?
If you love my work and want to create gorgeous memories together, please get in touch by completing the contact form or calling me direct on 0408 114 414.
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. While I can 100% photograph them I cannot promise that I have availability, so please contact me to check on availability.
