Photographing newborns is a pure pleasure! Newborns are best photographed around day 10. During these early days bub is super sleepy and easy to pose. It is ideal for you to contact me by your 34th week to put your due date on my schedule to ensure availability. Dates can then be altered according to bubs arrival date.
Your newborn session can last up to four hours. I take as much time as needed for bub to feed and settle. Your session will focus on the newborn with some interaction with Mum and Dad if requested. A professional make up artist can also be arranged for that extra bit of pampering for Mum.
Things you need to know:
*Full bellies equal sleepy babies. Please feed your baby before coming. A warm bath may also help to create a smooth sleepy session. If bub doesn't settle on arrival a top up feed may be required.
* The session environment will be very warm, infact HOT. Cold naked babies result in awake and unsettled babies.
*Newborns photograph best in their natural state. Unclothed. Heirloom blankets and bonnets are welcome for that personal touch.
*Feel free to bring along a book or magazine. Relax, have fun and enjoy this precious moment!
Proofing and Orders
About 3-4 weeks after your session, I will email you with a password for your private online proofing gallery. The online gallery will remain active for 14 days. Once full payment is received your prints will be ordered; they can take 2-3 weeks for delivery and longer for canvas, books or albums. All images will be stored and archived after 60 days. Once the gallery has been closed there will be a $25 fee to upload your gallery for an additional 7 days.
