The most transformative and poignant time in our lives, when we journey from being a couple to being a family, or we watch our family grow, our perspective and hearts expand beyond adequate words. It’s in reality a brief season in our lives, one with too many true cliché’s about the fleeting nature of its passing.
EXCITING THINGS ARE COMING – NEW STUDIO IN LATE 2022!
In December 2021 we took a leap of faith and purchased a 5acre property – our dream is to share this space with our parents in their golden years.
So we are currently constructing a shiny new CUSTOM studio located on my 5acre property in Oakford. During this time Studio format sessions will not be available for Maternity, Cake Smash, Sitter and Kids. I will however be offering a temporary MOBILE in Home Studio option for Newborn Sessions wanting that studio look. I bring along everything I need for this – all I need from you is one good window!
See the pricing guide or contact me for more info. All other formats will continue as usual.
Newborn & baby studio sessions are all natural light sessions, working with minimal props, avoiding “phasing trends” and instead creating clean, timeless imagery. Typically these portrait sessions include clean & neutral tones and focus heavily on connection capture between subjects or all the details that make this time & your little one so precious. I include a mixture of lifestyle and womb like posing to ensure no details are missed. All newborn sessions include some parent shots, sibling shots where applicable + baby portraiture
Wondering when to book?
Session availability is strictly limited for maternity & newborn sessions so the best time to book your session is while still pregnant, as I do tend to book out up to several months in advance, early second trimester is an ideal time to lock in your session spot. Studio Newborn Sessions yield best results when held within the first two weeks from baby’s birth (think sleepy & nude womb like poses) however, it is NEVER too late to capture your little one – so ask me for more info about sessions for older babies. Studio Sessions are held in the mornings Mondays – Fridays.
Newborn session scheduling
Once your booking form and deposit is received, your due date and session “spot” is reserved. However unless you are booked for a c-section/induction your exact baby’s arrival date cannot be predicted (they are tricky little things and tend to work to their own plans) so your final session date and time will be scheduled after baby is born. I ask my clients to notify me within 24 hours of baby’s birth, from there a day and time is scheduled for your session. All studio sessions are held Mondays – Fridays (with the exception of Public Holidays) and any sessions that include younger aged siblings are held early morning to work with nap times and while children are “freshest’.
More about Maternity sessions
Maternity Sessions are ideally scheduled between the 27 – 35 week period of your pregnancy. These sessions are all about capturing the unique beauty of growing a new human and the emerging bonds between mum + dad to be and any older siblings. These sessions can be done in your home, outdoors on location (Sunset) or in the studio and are held Mondays – Fridays. (Studio session options will resume upon new studio construction completion)
