we want you to know
Sometimes parents miss out on having their little newborns photographed and contact me asking when is the next best time to get their baby photographed. The truth is anytime is a great time! and honestly if it was possible to do a few shoots the first year than that would be the ultimate solution because each milestone is so special.
Newborn shoots are best done within the first two weeks of birth to achieve those really curled up sleepy poses. More information on newborn photography can be found by clicking the 'Find out more' button below. However if your baby is older than 2 weeks old it is a wonderful time to be photographed with parents & siblings as they are usually so much more alert.
Once they are 3 months their little personalities are beginning to shine through and a different variety of images are captured.
Baby shoots take about 45 mins and up to an hour and I will be working quickly to get the most out of them because they do tire easily. If possible it is best to book a time of the day when they are at their happiest, are well rested and have a full tummy.
A babies first year really is a special time and it goes by so fast! Make sure you capture your baby with photography you can proudly share and display in your home. Babies are great to photograph at any stage & honestly if it was possible to do a few shoots the first year than that would be the ultimate solution because each milestone is so special.
Sitter sessions have to be one of the cutest stages and also one of my favourites to photograph. Their smiles, cubby arms, and rolls are just adorable!
The best time to book is when baby can sit up unassisted and it's a bonus if they aren't an expert at crawling yet. At this age they tend to be quite easily entertained and getting those cheeky smiles are likely to be easily achieved.
In Chinese culture a baby's first 100 days represents a significant milestone. Family & friends send all sorts of gifts to express a wish that the child will live a hundred years. It is a beautiful notion of longevity and a lovely blessing for the child.
Book early to make sure you are able to secure the correct date for your shoot and capture your baby on this wonderful milestone.
Baby Photography Sessions are totally complimentary if photographing one child under the age of 14 months (saving you $100). This means that if you are one of the lucky ones to have received a Promotional Gift Voucher, not only will you receive your beautiful 8x10 matted print but you can use the $100 you saved as a credit towards your order!
Sessions are held at a Central Coast location or at my home studio located in Warnervale. Sessions are up to an hour long, & covers the photo shoot, editing, props, and also includes a pre-consultation appointment either at the studio or over the phone. This is the perfect chance to talk about ideas, ask more questions and really plan so that you can make the most of your upcoming shoot.
