Welcoming your new baby into the world is one of the most emotional and incredible times in your life.
There is nothing as precious and perfect as your newborn baby. It's a time that deserves to be captured forever so you never forget these moments.
Newborns stay new for such a short amount of time so to avoid disappointment, book your newborn session while you are still pregnant. I only take a limited amount of sessions per month, so booking early will ensure availability for your session. Your session is secured with payment of your Session Fee and a contract, and a tentative date is pencilled in for your due date. Once your baby arrives we can then confirm what date will suit for your session.
The optimum time to photograph a newborn is between around 5 - 14 days of your babies arrival. This is when they are at their most restful, easily settled, sleepy and therefore most comfortable during sessions.
All newborn sessions take place in our Timaru studio on weekday mornings. A complete newborn studio session will typically take between 2 - 3 hours which allows plenty of time for feeding, settling, and cuddles! Sessions are never rushed and are always completely baby led.
The studio is a warm and relaxing place, the environment is set so you can sit back, relax and enjoy the process. During your session your baby is photographed in a range of both natural and carefully positioned poses. We have a selection of beautiful high quality wraps, outfits and accessories as well as a great collection of props including little beds, bowls, baskets and boxes.
Parents and other siblings are encouraged to be a part of the session and grandparents, or even the family pets can be included and are most welcome to come along.
