Frequenty Asked Questions

When is the best time to photograph my newborn

It’s generally accepted that a baby is a newborn for the first three months of life, however in photography terms, newborns are best captured within the first two
weeks. This is when they’re at their sleepy best and most cooperative. But for me when mum and dad are ready then that’s the best time ! I no i wasn’t ready 2 weeks after giving birth so please don’t feel the pressure, just no that bub won’t be as sleepy as the weeks go by. I love photographing newborns in the first 3 months, they are still your new little one and will nestle into your arms just perfectly ….

When is the best time to book my newborn session?

My Newborn sessions usually book a few months in advance so I suggest getting in touch during the 2nd trimester after you’ve had your dating scan. If you’ve left it a little late to book your session, please don’t despair! Depending on when my pre-booked babies arrive, it sometimes happens that I will have extra availabilities. Feel free to get in touch and I will do my best to help you out.

How do I know what day to book my session?

I appreciate that babies can arrive at any time and rarely on their due date. With this in mind, I make 2 dates in my booking diary for you. When your beautiful baby arrives, I ask that you let me know as soon as possible so that I can begin preparing their session for the week ahead.

When is the Pure Newborn Session Fee due?

Your deposit of $100 will secure your 2 booking dates. The rest of your collection fee is due on the day of your session.

What should I wear? Is there anything I need to bring?

Together we will arrange a pre session appointment for you once you have decided to go ahead. The pre-session covers all the information you need, including locations , what to expect, what to bring, clothing inspiration etc

Do I need to bring props or wraps of my own?

This is what I think makes my work so different from others, I love using items that are special to you and your family. The props you bring will make them unique to you and help tell your life’s journey. Having said that, my studio contains a wide variety of blankets, wraps, beanies, etc and I can pretty much color match anything you may bring along.

Are you immunised?

Absolutely! The health and safety of my newborn clients is paramount.

Can we include our baby’s siblings in the session?

Of course! My dedicated Newborn + Sibling Collection is perfect for this. It includes parent/baby and sibling/baby/parent pics. I do these at the very beginning of the session and then leave time for just Mumma and bub at the end.

What if I need to postpone my newborn session?

It sometimes happens that my littlest clients need some extra time before they are ready for the session. If this happens, I will happily postpone your session until your little one and you are ready.

What if I want to cancel my newborn session?

In the event that you wish to cancel your newborn session, please note the Deposit is non-refundable.
