NEWBORN SESSION INFORMATION

When should I schedule my newborn session?

While still pregnant! Photographing your newborn baby in their first 10 days of life can make all the difference on getting those sleepy curled up poses. We will book an appointment around your EDD but since we don't know when baby will arrive we will put you on the calendar and hold a place for you. When your baby is born we will move your booking accordingly. 

If your baby is already born don't panic! Contact us and we will do our best to accommodate you!

 

When is the best time to photograph a newborn?

Newborns are best photographed between 5 to 10 days of their lives so planning ahead is very important! Newborn sessions can take up to 3 hours so we have plenty of time for feeding, comforting and cuddles.

I photograph newborns on weekdays in my home studio in Shepparton in the morning.

 

What if my baby is older than 10 days?

Don't worry! We can still do your session, but bear in mind that older babies might be more alert and don't sleep as well as very young newborns, so we might have some awaken photos of your baby. 

 

What should I bring for my newborn session.

We have a wide range of locally and internationally sourced props so you don't need to bring anything. If you however have any items you would like to incorporate in the session, like a special blanket, a sentimental item, etc. please bring them with you and I will do my best to incorporate them into the session.   

 

 

PORTRAIT SESSION INFORMATION

When should I schedule my portrait session?

As soon as you possible can. Specially if you would like a weekend session as places are very limited. Portrait sessions  are held in the soft light of early morning or late afternoon.

 

Where will my photos be taken?

We will discuss what kind of images you are wanting to have so I can suggest some locations. I have some places I really like to photograph but I am always open to new ideas! II'm also happy to photograph your family at your property.  We can do studio sessions or we can go outdoors, like a park, or the bush. Outdoors sessions are my favourite! Specially if photographing kids so they have lots of space to run around and have fun!

 

How long will the session take?

Please allow 1 to 2 hours for portrait sessions. I like to make a connection with kids before hand so they can feel relaxed around me when I start to take their portraits. I like to run around and make jokes with kids but I understand that their attention spam isn't very long so it's not too long for them either.

 

What should I wear?

Once your session is booked we will go over clothes selection and colours themes for your session. The clothing selection component of your session is very important to me and this is why this consultation is free of charge. You are welcome to change clothes during the session if you would like two different looks for your photos.

 

 

MATERNITY SESSION INFORMATION

 

When is the best time to have a maternity session?

I recommend having your maternity photos done between 32 and 36 weeks of pregnancy. But it can always be done before or after that. It all depends on your comfort level.

Maternity sessions  are held in the soft light of early morning or late afternoon.

 

How long will the session take?

Please allow 1 to 1.30 hours for portrait sessions.

WEDDINGS 

I believe every single wedding is different so I would love to hear about your wedding day! When contacting me for the first time the more information you give me, the more I can understand what your needs will be. Although I have set packages for weddings, if they not suit your day, we can sit together and discuss a package that will suit your wedding day better.

I like to meet the couples to discuss their wedding photography needs so I would love to meet you guys over a cup of coffee here in the studio, so please feel free to book a time to come in and meet me. Just call, text or drop me an email. No strings attached! 

 

Payment plans are available for all types of sessions as well as weddings. Please let us know if you would like more information.
