When to book Newborn photographer?
For newborn photo shoots, it is necessary that you book ahead of time while you are still pregnant in order for us to plan a schedule that fits around your due date and your baby’s actual arrival.
When booking while pregnant, we will pencil in a booking for a week after your due date, and will confirm with you once your baby has arrived. After your baby’s birth, contact us as soon as possible (even if you are still in hospital) in order to confirm a date and time.
It is ideal that we shoot within that 7-21 day period as your baby will still be sleepy, easy to pose, and this ensures we get photos before your baby’s first growth spurt (where things like baby acne, gassy stomachs and colic might occur). Each session takes approximately 3 hours, and both parents are allowed to be there with us. Depending on their siblings’ ages, they will also be allowed in the room – just message us first.
The studio will be designed with your baby’s best interest in mind, in order to keep them warm and relaxed. Our top priority is that we have a happy and safe baby to capture! Older newborns (those older than 21 days) can still have their portraits taken, however this will be done in a different way where the shoot will work depending on your baby’s needs and personality to ensure equally beautiful images.
We have a wide range of props and sets to accustom to your baby’s age and size.
Baby photo shoot at home
If you are not ready to bring your new baby to the studio, we can bring our props and equipment to you for a cute baby photo shoot in the comfort of your own home! For an additional price, we are able to recreate the set we would have in studio to ensure the best version of your baby’s shoot.
We understand that some clients may need to or want to stay home for the first few weeks or months, and are more than willing to adapt ourselves to accommodate you and your new baby in the safety of your own home.
Cake smash & Milestone photo session
There is nothing more important than capturing those all important and such fun milestone moments when your baby is 6-9 months old and can finally sit up alone! Your baby has a strong developing personality.
All our sessions come included with unique personal styling and design – which we can work with you on to find your favorite look! All parents and siblings are most welcome to come along to these sessions too (as long as they don’t steal the spotlight away from baby).
