When is the best time to book my maternity and newborn session?
As soon as possible! I generally schedule maternity sessions when you are around 32-35 weeks pregnant, and I pencil in your due date. Once bubs is born let me know and I will amend the booking to a suitable date. Babies tend to be at their sleepiest under 10 days of age. I only take a limited number of sessions a year so that I am flexible enough if the babies arrive later/earlier than expected.
How long does it take to get my photos?
Turnaround time is approximately 4 to 6 weeks after your session date. Images will be presented to you in a private online gallery where you can choose your images. If you are placing a print order for other products such as album or canvas it will take additional time for the lab to have your order ready.
I have another child, would you take some photos with him/her?
Yes Sibling and parent shots are included in all session. I suggest that if the sibling is a toddler we do the parent, family and sibling shots first so that one of the parents can take the toddler for a play while we finish off bub’s newborn session peacefully.
Are the images watermarked?
The images in your online gallery will have a watermark on them but the images you purchase will be full resolution and unmarked.
Do you supply the props for newborn sessions and outfit for maternity sessions?
Yes. I have a large selection of props, blankets, backdrops and outfits sourced from all over the world, to be used for all newborn sessions. I also have a large selection of Maternity Gowns in different sizes and colors. You are welcome to book a time with me to try on some of the gowns I have available.
My newborn’s skin is blotchy or flaky, should I wait longer before having their photo taken?
Most newborns don’t have great skin. We retouch the photos to remove any temporary blotchiness/flakiness or blemishes and jaundice, to ensure nice even skin tones. The sooner you have the newborn shoot, the easier it will be to capture some great peaceful poses.
