Newborn sessions take place at my studio in Ocean Reef and it is best to book while you are still pregnant. Once booked, I will pencil in your due date in my calendar. Then as soon as baby arrives, we try to schedule you in for the first 6-14 days after birth. This is when babies are most sleepy and still wanting to 'curl up'. Prior to your session we will have a chat about styling and I will also send you an information package via email.
Maternity sessions take place either in the studio in the morning or at an outdoor location at sunset. I recommend booking in for around 32+ weeks. You need to have a sizeable bump, but you don’t want to leave it too close to your due date! I offer a great session package for maternity and newborn photos as well. Prior to your session I will discuss styling with you and I provide a full range of maternity gowns and drapes for you to wear.
Family sessions are also either in my studio or at an outdoor location. I will help you choose a location that is suitable for your family and advise you on colour and clothing choice as well.
After your session, I edit your photos individually and they will be presented to you in a private online gallery for you to choose your products. When purchasing a digital package you will receive your images in high resolution as well as web prepared files on a USB in custom packaging.
There is a non-refundable session fee retainer required at the time of booking to secure your date.
Prior to your newborn session you will be sent information detailing how to best prepare for your shoot.
My style is very relaxed and even though I will make sure to give posing instruction I will also ensure that photos look natural and unforced.
For a family session I suggests you wear outfits that compliment each other. Bold colours or creamy tones are fantastic. I recommend not dressing everyone in the same colours but rather in a complimenting colour scheme. Bring accessories along too the shoot as well. If your child has a favourite teddy or something else that’s special to you and your family, please bring it along to your session.
Try to avoid clothes with printed brands or busy patterns, as these will take focus away from you and your family.
I will also discuss styling with you when we have decided on location.
