I always allow up to 3 hours as this allows time for feeding and settling as needed. On average though, I can get through a newborn session within 1.5 – 2 hours if your baby isn’t too fussy.
Absolutely! I have different packages to cater for different families needs. I always encourage these type of shots as I believe these are some of the best images that will be cherished by your family in the years to come.
As a leading provider of newborn photography in Sydney, I supply all of the little outfits, tiebacks, headbands, bonnets, wraps and props needed.. You are welcome to bring sentimental items along for me to incorporate into your session though.
For maternity sessions, I have a large range of beautiful maternity gowns for you to use at no extra cost. Just be sure to bring along a white and nude set of lingerie.
Unfortunately not as Tamara’s studio is fully equipped with everything needed for a successful newborn session such as lighting, controlled heating as well as access to her huge range of props, outfits, backdrops etc.
Being a highly sought after specialist photographer, I am generally booked out up to 6 months in advance so it is important to book in at your earliest convenience.
Most women book in after they have had their 12 week scans, generally while still in their second trimester.
I get asked this question a lot and its completely understandable. I only take on a limited number of bookings each month to allow flexibility for early and late arrivals.
To secure a spot, we will make a tentative booking of your due date, then when baby arrives you’ll just need to let me know as soon as possible so we can then schedule in your session within the first 2 weeks.
No actual sessions are booked in until your baby arrives, however when securing a spot for a newborn session, you are guaranteed a session whether you deliver early or late.
To secure your session, you only need to pay a $200 booking deposit to secure the date and time chosen. You will be emailed an electronic invoice to pay your booking deposit online either by card or direct bank transfer. This deposit will then be deducted from the collection of your choice with the remaining balance due on the day of your session (so you have plenty of time to decide!).
The studio accepts payments in the form of cash and Eftpos. If you will be placing a larger order including products such as frames, canvases or albums, a Take Home Layby option is available. This allows you to make regular fortnightly payments over 6 or 12 months with NO INTEREST EVER!
Booking is simple! First we will need to confirm availability for your photography session. Once you’re happy to go ahead, I will email you an electronic invoice so that you can easily pay your booking deposit online.
After your booking deposit has been paid, I will then be able to secure your session and you will be sent an email with information on what to expect and how to best prepare for your session.

VIEWING & SELECTING YOUR IMAGES
Yes absolutely! Only pay for the images you absolutely love!
No. To make things easier for you, immediately after your session, we will sit down and you’ll get to see your images straight away and select which images you would like to purchase. You’ll also have the opportunity to discuss what products are available to add to your order.
As my top package includes 30 images, you will be shown anywhere between 35 – 45 images to select from, depending on how well the session goes (dependant on your baby). Please note that although many photographers claim to take 50+ images on the day, you will find that a lot of these are duplicates. My goal is to show you the best variety of images to choose from as having duplicates can make the selection process difficult for you.
The studio accepts cash and also has eftpos facilities. Afterpay is also available as well as a 6 or 12 month interest free payment plan.
Afterpay is available for orders under $1000. I also have an interest free payment plan option for orders over $1000 which requires a 25% deposit with the balance payable over 6 or 12 months in equal fortnightly instalments.
Only a $200 booking deposit is required to secure your booking with nothing else to pay until the day of your session. On the day of your session you will get to select the images you wish to purchase. Your $200 booking deposit will be deducted from the total amount of your order.
