MATERNITY & NEWBORN
When should I book my Maternity session?
Your beautiful bump is best photographed between 34-36 weeks.
Where do Maternity sessions take place?
We are spoilt for choice with Sydney's stunning backdrops. Combine that with your beautiful bump and there we have mother nature at it's very finest! I can suggest some wonderful locations but if you have somewhere special in mind that’s wonderful. If your babies nursery is ready we could also spend part of the session at your home if your like. Outside sessions take place at sunrise or sunset.
What should we wear for our Maternity session?
Bumps always look gorgeous in a long maxi dress. Cardigans and shirts are great for showing off your bump while also keeping your chest covered. If you are absolutely loving your pregnant body and feel confident rocking a bikini, then you go girlfriend! The important thing is to wear whatever makes you feel comfortable and happy. Your images should reflect you. Also, please feel free to change during the session. Please limit this to two outfits. Your partner and other children are of course more than welcome to join us for the session! Try to choose clothes that are logo/text free as this can be distracting. Patterns and pops of colour are wonderful. I’m always on hand and happy to help with your clothing options :)
When should I book my Newborn session?
Please call and book your session during your pregnancy. If I know your predicted due date we can make a tentative booking. Once your precious baby arrives, please call to arrange a suitable time and date. I love to photograph newborns when they are between 1-3 weeks old.
Where do Newborn sessions take place?
Newborn sessions normally take place in the comfort of your own home.
What style of Newborn photographer are you?
While you've been looking around for your newborn photographer, you will have most likely come across two different directions: Lifestyle and Posed. I am inspired by both these styles. I love Lifestyle because photographing you interacting with your new baby in the home environment is so wonderful. This produces results that are deeply unique and personal to you. I also adore Posed imagery as it provides a great opportunity to capture the fine detail and beauty of your little one. When I arrive at your home I will first seek out an area which has beautiful soft natural light coming in the window. I will then set up my beanbag and blankest for your baby to lie on. I like to keep the images very simple with minimal styling - a timeless reminder of how your baby looked at just a few days old. I might include a simple wrap but that's about it. This part of the session can sometimes take a few hours so it's a great time for you to put your feet up and relax.
Do I need to make any preparations?
Nope. Just relax and treat the morning like any other. In the cooler months please whack the heating right up. We want you’re baby to feel nice and toasty when we are doing their photos. I will also bring a small portable heater with me. When I arrive I would love you to show me around so we can decide which areas of your home are best for the session.
What should we wear for the Newborn session?
Please dress your baby in a loose all-in-one and wrap lightly to avoid pressure marks on their skin from tight clothes. This will also make it easy for us to undress your baby without too much disturbance. I would recommend parents and siblings to wear plain, neutral clothes so the focus is mainly on the newborn.
When will I be able to view my images?
You will receive a link to your own online gallery 4 weeks after the shoot.
How many images are in my gallery?
You will have over 60+ beautiful photos within your gallery. Each image is beautifully edited in both colour and black & white.
How do I make a print order?
You are able to view all the session images and place your order of prints/artworks directly from your personal online Photo Gallery. I am always happy to help with the selection process if and when you need me. You are also welcome to download the photos make your own prints.
What size are the digital photos you supply?
Your photos will be high-resolution 300dpi rsgb. 15 x 10 inch.
How long does it take to receive my products?
Around 2 - 3 weeks. Please place your order within 3 weeks of receiving your online Photo Gallery. Thanks you :)
