FAQ

When do I take newborn photos?

- Before they turn 2 weeks. I'll schedule you for a week after the due date, and rearrange if you're early or late.

- The shoot usually takes place first thing in the morning, as bubs will generally sleep more soundly then.

When should I book?

As soon as possible! The earlier the better, so that I can make sure you have a spot.

ALL bookings require a $500 non-refundable deposit to secure a date.

How long does a newborn shoot take?

Depending on your package, I usually average at around 3 hours. We often need to stop and feed at least once throughout the session. Some babies are more settled than others and take only 2 hours, others are fussy and we stop more often, sometimes lasting until 4. I respond to the baby - if it's really not working, their health and happiness comes first and we stop until they are ready.

What do I bring and wear?

The only thing you'll need to bring are your newborn nappies. Here, I have wipes, a place to feed, and all the outfits and wraps that the baby will need for the shoot.

Outfits - For mums, usually neutral colours like white, cream or tan looks best. Texture looks great too. For dads, a fitted tee with no bold prints or logos visible, in similar colours or black.

When will my photos be ready?

Within 24 hours, a sneak peek will be available on social media.

The rest of your gallery will be available within a month (although I've never taken that long - I get too excited once the shoot is over and get started right away!)

What if I want to have the shoot at my place?

You're a new mum. I get it. It is daunting to leave the home when your baby and your new life is so fresh! I am able to come and do lifestyle newborn shoots in your own home for an additional cost: $800 + travel expenses.
