When is the best time to book my maternity photography session?
It’s best to book your maternity photography sessions while you are between 32 – 36 weeks pregnant.
When is the best time to book my newborn photography session?
In order to achieve those adorable curly poses, newborn photography sessions are best done within the first 2 weeks from birth. I find the sweet spot is when your baby is between 7-10 days old. This is why it is extremely important to book whilst still in your 1st or 2nd trimester to secure a spot for this time frame as I am generally booked out up to 6 months in advance.
What if my baby doesn’t arrive on my due date?
This without a doubt happens in most cases, which is why I only take a limited amount of bookings each month. This is to provide flexibility and to accommodate for when my clients actually deliver. When you book, we book in your due date and once baby arrives you will need to let me know as soon as possible. We can then schedule in your actual session within those first 2 weeks.
How far in advance should I book my newborn photography session?
Most women book their maternity &/or newborn photography sessions whilst still in their 1st or 2nd trimester of pregnancy (usually once they have passed the 12 week mark). As I am generally booked out up to 6 months in advance, it is important to book early to avoid disappointment. Unfortunately if you wait until after your baby is born, the chances of securing a spot within those first 2 weeks would be very difficult.
Can I include my other children and partner in my photography session?
Of course! I actually encourage this as these are beautiful moments your family will cherish forever! There is no additional charge for including shots with partners or siblings. For newborn sessions, it’s a good idea to bring a family member who can take your other children home once their turn is done. This will help to ensure a relaxed and successful newborn session as younger children can also become unsettled.
Do you provide maternity dresses and gowns or do I need to wear my own?
A collection of beautiful maternity gowns are available for all of my clients to use. I like to encourage outfit changes throughout the session using my gowns to achieve different styles and looks. All of my gowns are super stretchy and suitable for all body types.
Do I need to bring anything with me to my newborn photography session?
Only your baby’s essentials such as bottles and formula (if not breast feeding) and nappies. A huge collection of props, backdrops, outfits, headbands and bonnets are available and ready to use during your session. If you can express your breast milk and your baby can take a bottle, it’s a good idea to bring some with you. This is so I can assist with settling your baby when positioned on the posing bag or in props.
How long after my photography session are my images ready?
A social media sneak peek will be posted immediately after your session. A gallery of 20 individually professionally edited images will be ready to view and download within 1 week after your session.
What payment options do you have?
To book your session, you only need to pay your session fee to secure the date and time chosen. On the day of your session you will then be required to pay a minimum amount equivalent to the cost of my digital collection which is currently $699. The studio accepts payments in the form of cash, eftpos or payment of an electronic invoice. You will have the option to upgrade to a larger collection and add additional products once you have viewed your images. 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!
How do I book?
Booking is simple! First we will need to confirm availability for your maternity or newborn photography session. Once you’re happy to go ahead, I will email you an electronic invoice so that you can easily pay your session fee online. After your session fee has been paid, I will then be able to secure your booking and you will be sent an email with information on what to expect and how to best prepare for your session.
