The first few days of a baby’s life are amazing! Newborn portraits are best taken when your baby is under 10 days of age. 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. Newborn photos are best captured before the baby is 6 weeks old, as after 6 weeks babies tend to be awake more and therefor its a lot harder trying to get them into some of the poses. 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!
Pregnancy and maternity 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. Pregnancy and Maternity Photos are such a lovely way to remember this special time in your life. Sessions can also be combined to capture these special moments. Contact me today to discuss a booking option to suit your needs.
Family photographs are a must have, especially before the kids get too cool to want to pose with Mum & Dad! I like to shoot using natural light in a relaxed and casual style, and a favourite locations for me to shoot in is the family home as I really believe it adds to showing the uniqueness that makes up YOUR family! I am also happy to send a list of my favourite places to shoot in and around the Gold Coast and Brisbane too.
