Frequently Asked Questions

When is the best time to schedule my newborn portrait session?

The best time to schedule your session is before your little one is born. This way you can rest assured that your newborn photo session will occur within 2 weeks of birth, the very best time to get the sweetest photographs! My weekly calendar fills up quickly and I only take on a limited amount of newborns each month.

How do I book without knowing my session date?

Your due date will be your session date so that we can be sure that you are on my calendar for that month. Once your baby is born and you are ready to go home, all you have to do is send me an email and from there we’ll schedule a definitive session date and time within the first 5-14 days of your baby’s arrival. Once you book your newborn photo shoot session I’ll send you a detailed email with all the information you need to know.

How soon should I have my newborn session after giving birth?

The sooner the better! Newborns tend to stay sound asleep a few days after birth and because of this we are able to gently move your little one into sweet poses. After a couple of weeks, this is not as easy to do. After the 14 day mark babies begin to stretch and the poses won’t be as easy to accomplish.

How long will my newborn photography Auckland session take?

Your session will take between 1 to 3 hours, depending on the type of session you book. Pausing to allow times for feeding and changing. The atmosphere is very relaxed and comfortable and the pace of our session will be determined by the baby.

My baby is already born, am I too late to schedule a Newborn Session?

If I have available dates in my calendar I am happy to accommodate.

What is the turn around on my images?

You will receive your images 2-3 weeks from your session date.

Where do the studio sessions take place?

Your session will take place in my home Auckland baby photography studio. Just bring yourself and your little bundle of joy and rest assured that the studio is fully stocked with all the necessary props, clothes, headbands, hats, wraps and snacks to keep you comfortable throughout your session.

Do you offer milestone & cake smash photo session?

Yes I do. 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 the baby). Also celebrating the first birthday with a cake smash photo session is an amazing and fun experience with beautiful memories. We do all those sessions in our Auckland newborn and family photography studio.

Do you offer Maternity photo sessions and hen is the best time to schedule ?

Yes, between 32-36 weeks is best but everyone is different. Once you see that rocking baby bump appear, you’re ready so it’s best to schedule your shoot between the 32-36 weeks period while knowing we can always adjust the date depending on how your baby grows.
