New babies change so quickly, I have two recommended times for Newborn Portrait Sessions. True newborn photos, when the baby retains its womb-like behaviour, can sleep almost anywhere and loves to curl up as though they are still in the womb, should take place between birth and about 10 days old. We recommend making your appointment while you are pregnant, and if your baby is early or late, we can adjust the session to achieve the correct timing. From 10 days to 12 weeks, I can capture your newborn’s first awareness of the world and first connection with you, through smiles, cuddles and eye contact. A newborn session can take two to three hours, allowing for plenty of time to feed, change and settle your baby when necessary.
What to Wear
It is a good idea to bring a change of clothes for yourself and anyone else who will be in the photos as it is lovely to do some no nappy shots – so you may be in for a surprise wee all over your clothes! For both you and baby it is a good idea to avoid clothing with bold patterns and logos.
The Viewing Session
Your viewing session will be approximately one week after your portrait session, and generally takes about 60 minutes as you view a slideshow of all your images set to music, projected onto our large viewing screen. We recommend you bring along a friend or family member to enjoy the session with you, and help you choose your favourite portraits. Your images will be ready approximately two weeks after you place your order.
Once you make your order, the images will be ready to collect in approximately two weeks.
We have a range of display options for you to choose from, including prints, canvas and high quality hand-crafted albums in your choice of design.
50% of the session fee is due at time of booking to reserve your session date, and balance is due on the day of the photo session. Payment can be made using cash, money transfer or credit card.
