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 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 in-home 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.
Older baby, toddler and children sessions:
Baby’s and toddlers are such a joy to photography as they are usually full of smiles and have such bubbly little personalities. One of my favourite ages to photograph would have to be babies around 6-9 months old. For older children, I am not unknown to tell a silly joke to get a smile! When I photography children I tend to just let them be themselves during the shoot, I try not to force them into poses, I normally ask them to show me what they’ve got and it works wonders!
M photographs are taken at a location of your choice (beach, creek, field, park and garden). Pregnancy photography is best done in early-mid final trimester when your bump is at its best. Maternity photos are such a lovely way to remember this special time in your life.
Family photographs are a must have, especially before the kids get too cool to want to pose with Mum and Dad! I like to shoot using natural light in a relaxed and casual style, I have a list of my favourite places to shoot in and around the Gold Coast and Brisbane too so I am happy to recommend a spot to hold your session in.
