We offer sessions for newborns, maternity and babies. Our goal is to capture these precious moments in your life and create amazing artwork for your home.
Images are delivered as a digital download, in high resolution without watermarks, and are suitable for large prints. We also include a custom phone app containing a gallery of your images. I shoot for a total of 20 photos for full sessions or 10 photos for mini sessions.
Studio sessions are held in my professional home studio in the Nollamara suburb, 10-15 minutes north of Perth city. All of our sessions (excl. mini newborn sessions) include family photos as well.
The ideal time to photograph newborns is between 4 and 12 days of age, as they are more sleepy and curl up easily. Sessions take 2 – 3 hours and provide ample time for feeding and comforting.
I have a wide variety of props to choose from and I like to style the session to what you like. I also offer shorter mini sessions where I shoot for a total of 10 photos, take 1 – 2 hours, excludes parent/family/sibling photos, and are of your newborn fully wrapped and positioned on their back only (up to 5-6 different designs/styles).
Bookings are essential and should be ideally tentatively booked based on your due date, and then once your baby is born you’d contact me to choose a time for your session. This allows me to guarantee that I’ll have time available for you no matter if your baby arrives early or late.
The best time for the session is usually around 30 – 35 weeks – late enough for your bump to show, but not too late to be uncomfortable or have any early surprises :)
The photos taken in studio are more intimate and on black, white, or cream backgrounds. I have a wide variety of dresses/sashes that you’re welcome to wear, and can view them here. Sessions take approximately 1 hour.
combined newborn and maternity
We also offer combined maternity and newborn sessions, where you can include a handful of photos (up to 7) from your mini maternity session along with your newborn photos in one combined package of 20 photos. If you’d prefer more than a handful of maternity photos, I’d recommend booking separate sessions.
Babies age so fast, so it is important to capture these moments to remember for years to come. Sessions take approximately 1 hour in studio, and are suitable for ages of 4 months or older. I also offer shorter mini sessions which take half an hour, where I shoot for a total of 10 photos and are available for ages of 6 months or older.
after the session
It takes 1-2 days to edit the images from your session, after which you’ll be sent a link to an online gallery where you can decide on a package to purchase in the comfort of your own home. There are no hidden charges and we do not pressure-sell to you like a lot of companies do. There is no minimum spending limit, so if we don’t capture what you are looking for then there is no pressure to purchase.
