Frequently asked questions
Where do the Newborn Sessions take place?
All Newborn and Newborn Mini sessions take place at my home studio in Wanniassa, ACT.
When should I schedule my Newborn Session
Babies rarely arrive on their due date.
With this in mind, when you book your Newborn Session in, I put you in my calendar for your due date. When you little one arrives, email me and we will lock in a date/time for your session.
When is it best to photograph a Newborn Baby?
The best time to photograph your little one is when he/she is between 4-12 days old. During this period Babies are still sleepy and will be more willing to be posed for photos which allows for a variety of shots.
If you are planning on booking a Newborn Mini session, you can stretch this time frame out by a week as bub will be wrapped for the photos and (hopefully!) should be settled.
How long does a Newborn session take?
Newborn Session's take between 2-3 hours.
Newborn Mini sessions take 1.5 hours.
What should I bring along to my Newborn photography session
Newborn sessions take between 2-3 hours, so best to be prepared. Feel free to bring along snacks/food for yourself. Make sure you pack plenty of nappies and wipes. If bub is bottle fed, pack some extra formula as they tend to feed a more often during the session.
If you use a dummy, bring it along! It can be a very handy tool during the photoshoot to keep bub happy.
I also recommend that the parents bring a change of clothes in case there are any accidents when hold bub without a nappy on.
How many images do I receive with my Newborn session?
You receive 10 images with Newborn Mini sessions and 18 images in a Newborn session
Do Newborn sessions include photos with siblings/parents?
Yes! Both Newborn and Newborn Mini sessions include sibling and family photos.
How long can I expect to wait for my photos?
I try to get a preview up on social media (facebook/instagram) within approximately 48 hours after the photoshoot.
The remainder of the photos are ususally ready to be downloaded from my website within 2-3 weeks of the photoshoot.
