The first few days of a baby’s life are amazing! I recommend newborn images be taken in the first 7 days -3 weeks. This ensures that your baby will be quite sleepy and can easily curl into positions. If you are currently pregnant I highly recommend making a tentative booking by your 30 week mark for around the time you are due, this can be changed to suit if your baby arrives early or later. I also understand there are some circumstances that may mean you cant have photos within those first couple of weeks, but thats ok! I have shot newborn sessions with babies up to 6 weeks of age, there just may be a couple of poses we may be unable to capture, due to your baby being a little more awake during their session. During your session I will capture a mix of candid and posed images, getting a good mix (with siblings, with mum, with dad etc) to make up your gallery. I have a client wardrobe of over 50 dresses for mums to use if needed. My newborn sessions are held wither in your home or in my home studio at sessions start at 9:30am.
Maternity ~ Family ~ Couples
The above sessions are all held outdoors in one of my beautiful locations in the hour leading up to sunset. My sessions are very relaxed and candid and rather than have you sitting and staring at the camera I give you prompts and ways for you to interact with your partner and/or family. I love movement and incorporating this into my images. I adore capturing cuddles between parents and children…but I also love those moments where you can just be silly and relaxed. It is the in between moments for me that are the best! Because I am always giving you prompts and explaining what we are going to achieve out of each set up, you will never be wondering what to do or feeling awkward. Some of the best feedback I get is from dads who have previously had not so great sessions elsewhere, that come up and thank me at the end of their shoot to thank me for making them feel so comfortable. I typically book out at least 3 months in advance for weekend time slots so if your thinking of having some photos taken, please contact me asap!
