Newborn Photography

Newborn photography is a beautiful way to capture those memories of a really important time in your life. If you want babies in pots or white studio shots then I am probably not the right photographer for you. I want to make beautiful natural photos that show your connection with each other. Maybe you nuturing little vulnerable chile as they look up at you. The trust as they sleep on your partner.

Newborn Photography

I am a relaxed photographer. We are going for interesting and cool results which will come half from me and half from you. I like natural light but if that’s not right for the theme then we can rock the studio lights.

The Experience

Often the shoot will be at your house or somewhere close by. It’s best to allow lots of time and fit in with your routine of feeding and sleeping. We will try to set up a few shots but it is what it is. Have some wipes handy and you may want a few changes of clothes. Although the title is newborn, the shoot can be for sitting children as well. Once they are walking then it’s more of a family shoot.

Newborn Photography FAQ

What does it cost?

It depends on the time and effort put into the shoot. Typically a photoshoot is 1 hour of shooting, and 3 hours of professional editing, so falls under my half-day rate on my pricing page. The cost can go up if more time is needed either for shooting or special edits.

How do I book?

Just send me a message, but make sure you mention your preferred date so I can check my calendar and the theme or style you are wanting. A $50 non-refundable deposit is needed to confirm your booking.

How do I select a newborn photographer?

Have a look at each photographer’s examples and make sure you like the style of the pictures they make generally. You want to make sure you have similar tastes to them as well as see people who shoot with a similar style to you. Maybe follow them on social media to see consistency and their personality.

What if I need to change the date or cancel?

You will lose your deposit if you cancel the shoot after booking. Other money paid will be refunded (unless costs have been incurred eg hiring a location).

How do I prepare for the shoot?

I work with all sorts of people. Some are relaxed and some detail orientated, but everyone needs to go into the shoot with an understanding of the theme. The best way to do that is by having a chat at the time of booking and to look at similar results by me. The main things you will need to decide on is the location and wardrobe. I can help out with posing and direction at the shoot if I know what you are hoping for as a result.

When will I get the photos?

I normally send through everything within a week but will let you know if that’s not going to be achievable.

How many photos do I get from a newborn photography session?

People sometimes want to know how many photos and it’s really hard to estimate as it depends a lot on you and what happens during the shoot time.
