Newborn Photography Sessions

{Session Fee $150}

Newborns grow and develop very quickly. To ensure the safety and comfort of your precious newborn, my approach to your session will be different depending on their age and stage of development.

Newborns 14 days or younger

Within the first 14 days, newborns still retain some of their gorgeous traits from when they were in mum's womb. Many babies under a week old still retain lanugo (downy hair on their body which often disappears a few days after birth). They are super flexible, still love to curl up tightly, mimicking their positions in mum's womb. They don't mind being naked as long as it's warm, and falls into a deep sleep easily. Therefore, at this age, they can be safely posed in many super cute positions and props.

If you love these squishy curly posed Newborn Portaits, it is very important that you make a tentative booking when you're pregnant. We will confirm the booking when you are close to your due date, and organise a time when both parents and siblings can attend.

Babies 2 weeks or older

After two weeks newborns become a lot more alert. They are now able to focus their eyes on people and objects, and enjoy looking around. By this age they are used to being clothed and swaddled, hence less content when naked. They have become less flexible, less sleepy, and may startle wake easily. Therefore, for babies over two weeks of age, some of the naked curly womb-like positions are harder to achieve. 

This is the ideal age for capturing your baby's emotional connection with parents and siblings.

*************

I generally photograph Newborn Session at my Forest Hill Studio. This allows me to control the lighting and temperature, as well as access to a range of wraps and props. However, I'm also happy to photograph the session at your home** if you prefer not to travel.

Newborn Sessions Fee is $150. The portrait session can take anywhere between 1-3 hours, allowing plenty of time for settling. 

Hopefully, by the end of your session, we would have captured approx. 30+ photos. We will schedule a Viewing and Selection Appointment one week after your session. First, we use a comparison program to narrow down your favourites, then using a specialised program, we can virtually place your selected portraits on your wall and see exactly how they will look before you finalise your order. 

The session fee does not include any print or digital products. Prices start at $35 for an archival quality 5”x7” print, or a gorgeous 10 print box set with high res digital files for $545. Please contact me for a detailed product price menu.

** An additional fee of $50 applies for photographing the Newborn Session at your home.
