Newborn sessions are a peaceful time to sit back and simply watch your baby sleep...or give them loads of cuddles. We keep the sessions as relaxed as possible. They are in your own home, it is a nice familiar environment for new, sleep deprived parents and it gives older siblings the freedom to come and go. Newborn sessions are usually within the first two weeks and take between 3-4 hours which includes plenty of time for feeding and settling. Older babies can still have a newborn session but are less likely to be as sleepy and flexible. The do have the most amazing eye contact and expressions but the session may run a little more like a lifestyle session.
Newborn sessions are $520 which includes the session and 20-25 edited digital images.
*note newborn sessions fill quickly and are limited, although I will always try to accommodate everyone I will give priority to those who have pre booked. Don't be embarrassed to book early I have had mums book before they have announced to family and friends.
I love family sessions it is a good excuse to just run around and play with the kids or to watch the family interactions. Family sessions are tailored to you and your family; it may be simply photos of your child/children through to group family pictures. The family sessions are taken outdoors in a local park or garden of your choice in the local area. Using natural light gives beautiful colour and softness to your images. I will always look to capture as many expressions as I can to show their real essence and those interactions that are full of energy and connection. I always take the time to get to know you and your family to make sure I have captured the real you.
Beach locations are available for an additional cost.
Family sessions are $520 which includes the session and 20-25 edited digital images. Sessions are for up to five family members but additional people can be added for an extra $50 each.
The best time to take maternity photographs are around 32-37 weeks but it is dependent on how you are feeling. Multiple births are usually earlier and sometimes you carry big or small and might like to postpone it a bit longer or get in a bit earlier while you are still comfortable. I am very understanding about how you feel when you are pregnant and some women feel like they are glowing and others (like me) not so much. Using natural light in an outdoor session with the right angles will make any mum-to-be glow.
Maternity sessions are $290 which includes the session and 8-10 edited digital images.
Some travel costs may apply if outside the local Berwick area.
