Frequently Asked Questions
Where do the Newborn Sessions take place?
All Newborn Sessions take place at my home studio in Wanniassa ACT.
When should I schedule my Newborn Session?
Babies rarely arrive on their due date. Taking this into mind, when you book your Newborn Session in, I put you in my calendar for your due date. Once your little one arrives, email me and we will lock in a date/time for your session.
When is it best to photograph a Newborn?
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.
How long does a Newborn Session take?
Newborn Sessions usually take between 2-3 hours depending on bubs mood on the day.
Do I need to bring anything to my Newborn 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.
You do not need to bring any props/outfits along as I have everything here at the studio. However if you do have something that you would like to include in the photos please do bring it along.
I also recommend that Mum & Dad bring a change of clothes in case there are any accidents when holding bub without a nappy on.
Are Family and sibling photos included with Newborn Photography sessions?
Yes - I am very happy to include some Family and sibling photos as a part of the newborn session.
What if my baby make a mess?
Because Newborn sessions require bub to be without a nappy for a long period of time, you should expect there to be some mess. Accidents happen (very regularly), so please don't stress.
All of the blankets and props are washed and sanitised after each session.
How many photos do I receive from my Newborn session?
You will receive between 15-20 images plus black and white copies.
How long can I expect to wait for my photos?
I will put a couple of previews up within 24-48 hours of the photoshoot.
The remainder of the photos are ususally ready to be downloaded from my website within 2-3 weeks of the photoshoot.
