YOUR NEWBORN SESSION

What to wear to get the look you love...


Whites, neutrals & earthy tones.


Knits, linens & textured fabrics.


Check out the client wardrobe link for mama & baby at the bottom of the page (and head over to my instagram page for an up to date wardrobe highlights)

Something a little more intimate...


Skin on skin, nursing and baths can make magical memories, if your interested in this just let me know!

Before the session


Once baby arrives we lock in a date between 1-2 weeks old, this is so baby is less likely to become unsettled or develop milk spots.


For an in home session we usually use the master bedroom (please have a light/neutral coloured bedroom spread on if available ) & an area with a nice window.


No need to spotlessly clean, tidy up is perfect.


If you have any older children practising getting them to hold baby is a beautiful option, and you can have some treats available for their hard work participating.


Becoming a big brother or sister can be a wonderful but difficult time, so I will happily follow their lead on the day to help them feel special & encourage a stress free session.


If you are doing an outdoor session please click the 'Sunset' link below for information related to your session.

On the day


Firstly mama, you've just had a baby, so you just let me know how you're feeling and what you need on the day.


Quite often we can spend more time chatting, feeding & settling baby then we do taking photos. This is perfectly ok and normal.


I will gently guide you with posing suggestions during the session, to keep it natural & candid but just enough to help you all feel comfortable.


Pet's are absolutely welcome during your in-home session.


I say sessions usually take 60-90 mins. This is a just a guideline. I have a variety of shots I aim to capture, and sometimes we get all the shots in under an hour, and other times it can take a little longer. This is all relating to how baby is feeling on the day and if there are older siblings as well.


If someone is sick or it is raining at the time of your shoot (for a sunset session) we reschedule at no added cost.
