Maternity Session Information

With over six years experience photographing newborns, I am well accustomed to the nerves and anxiety new parents can feel in the lead up to their newborn photography experience. Knowing this, I am an on location photographer which means your newborn session will take place in the comfort of your own home. Allowing you to be as relaxed as possible so you can sit back and take in the whole experience.


All blankets and wraps are provided for, with most being gender neutral. This is because my style is minimalistic, natural and very much focused on your baby rather than props and accessories. My main focus during your session is to capture those precious moments and features of your brand new baby. Fluffy shoulders to those tiny little toes. I want to create portraits for you that not only preserve what your newborn looks like, but remind you of what your newborn felt like to hold in your arms. Forever bottling up that feeling of new love.


Your newborn session should take place when your baby is under sixteen days old in order to achieve the results consistent with what can be viewed throughout my website and social media. I am often booked up to six months in advance, so I recommend booking during your second trimester to avoid disappointment.

How long does the session last?

Your newborn session will run anywhere between 1-3 hours, dependent on how settled your baby is. Newborn sessions are never rushed and for this reason, the maximum amount of time needed is always allocated.


Can siblings and parents be photographed?

Absolutely. In fact, often photographs including parents and/or siblings become my favourites. There is no additional charge for this, I simply ask that siblings are only in the room when they are needed for photographs to help ensure a relaxed and calm environment.

Are we able to just buy just digital images?

Yes. Once you have viewed your image gallery, you simply choose a digital collection to purchase; five, ten or all images. You also have the option to add beautiful print products if you wish.


How does payment work?

You will be required to pay your creative session fee of $150 at the time of booking. This covers my time in photographing your family, as well as the editing of your photographs. All products such as prints, frames, and digital images are purchased after viewing your gallery. All prices for products will be sent to you upon enquiry. *Interest free layby options available, conditions apply.
