About Newborn Sessions | Central Coast
Welcome! I’m delighted that you are considering booking a Newborn Session. It is an honour to be able to photograph newborn babies at a time when parents have so much pride in their new baby and emotions are raw. Capturing the connection between parents and their baby just as they are getting to know them, is especially rewarding. I hope that your session will be a time when you slow down and feel especially proud of the amazing miracle that you’ve brought into the world.
I love beautiful light, simplicity and neutral, calming textures and tones and I love working with babies. Each child is unique and perfectly formed just as they are — from their tiny lashes to their precious little fingers and toes. Newborn portraiture is aimed at capturing these all-too-fleeting details.
Sessions are easy-going even if your little one isn’t. Patience and awe accompany the time spent capturing your brand new baby. The end result – images that celebrate life and are artistically refined for you to treasure as a keepsake.
Ideally, newborn sessions should take place within your baby’s first 10 days while they are still sleepy and curl up naturally. Sessions typically last 2-4 hours to accommodate feeding, changing and the time it takes to settle baby.
Studio vs Lifestyle:
The natural light Studio is perfect for mums and dads who don’t feel up to preparing their home for a photo session or who would like a well-lit, calm and peaceful environment to escape to for their baby’s first photo session. Everything is set up for a newborn and there are plenty of home comforts for sleep-deprived mums and dads too. I have a posing beanbag designed especially for newborn portraiture as well as a range of blankets, backdrops, props, wraps and lovely things crafted especially for newborns.
Lifestyle Sessions are aimed at capturing baby’s first few days at home with mum and dad cuddling, feeding, settling or simply admiring their newborn in the comfort of their own home. Baby’s new cot and room, mum and dad’s bed, the family couch — all become settings for capturing unique, memorable images of a time that is all too fleeting.
Preparing for Your Newborn Session:
I will provide you with a simple to-do checklist and info sheet about what to expect as soon as your session is booked.
The session fee and client contract are required to reserve your session. The fee is non-refundable but you may transfer it to another date due to the unpredictable nature of birth and newborn babies. There are other milestones to capture and sessions can also be held at 4 months, 7 months and one year.
The session fee covers pre-session consultation (optional), the session itself, the photographer’s time and talent and beautifully retouched images delivered to a secure, online gallery within 2-4 weeks of your session.
