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.
All packages purchased include 20 photos and are supplied on a USB drive as well as a custom phone app containing a gallery of your images.
Studio sessions are held in my professional home studio in the Stirling area, 10-15 minutes north of Perth. All of our 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.
Bookings are essential and should be tentatively booked based on your due date, and then when you arrive home from hospital with your baby contact me to arrange the actual time of your session. If you have just given birth, still contact me in case there is an opening and I still may be able to photograph your newborn.
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. 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 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.
after the session
It takes approx. 2-3 days to edit the images from your session. I will then invite you to a viewing session to show you the images and our product range, to help you decide on any products or packages that you’d like to purchase. Our products are of the highest quality and range from wall portraits through to canvas, frames, acrylic and folio boxes. There are no hidden charges and we do not pressure-sell to you like a lot of companies do.
If you already have a good idea of what you’d like to purchase, you can alternatively view a preview of your images in an online gallery. There is no minimum spending limit, so if we don’t capture what you are looking for then there is no pressure to purchase.
