What is your style?

My preferred style for newborn photography is clean, crisp, elegant and timeless.

I’d photograph every baby on a soft off-white backdrop with nothing more than a simple wrap – no accessories.

Simple, timeless, classic images which will last a lifetime.

Capturing those delicate newborn details with my macro lens is something I do for every session. I will take as many photographs of those teeny features as they just simply begin to disappear by week 4

Because I cater for such a dynamic range of clientele I have also been offering creative, whimsical ‘Fine Art Designs’. These may be added to your baby family portraits session in addition to your normal gallery.

Fine Art Designs range in colours and styles, from gender specific floral designs to earthy natural outdoor settings.

These have been a massive hit with my clients over the past twelve months.


How long are Newborn sessions? Can you come to me?

Newborn Baby Family Portrait sessions are normally 2.5 hours long and held at my Aubin Grove home Studio.Under special circumstances where baby has gas, reflux or constipation – up to 4hours may be needed.

My sessions are completely directed by your baby.

Getting the best photographs takes a lot of time and patience. My studio is kept at a temperature that keeps baby very cosy. I work on getting your baby full of milk to keep him/her sleepy and content. Then it’s a matter of delicately rocking your precious baby into a deep slumber.

My home studio is specifically designed for newborn baby sessions. Lighting AND temperature play an important role in my images, without that consistency I cannot guarantee your ‘at home’ images will turn out the same, so I require all clients to come to me.


Do I need to bring anything to my session?

When your booking has been confirmed I will send you a detailed client info guide for you to read over. Any questions about the guide should be asked right away. The success of your session is very much to do with how well you prepare baby at home before leaving my way.

Should baby not wish to sleep I will take the opportunity to capture so amazing wide awake portraits. Older and more alert babies do spend considerably less time asleep than babies less than 16 days old.


How many images will I get?

To be honest I don’t actually ‘count’. You will get all the amazing shots which I have captured.

It all boils down to how amazing your baby is on the day.

All sessions have a guaranteed 25 images delivered in both colour and b&w. But most clients will get anywhere up to 60 unique images!! All baby family portraits are colour-corrected, enhanced and thoroughly retouched to remove as much dry skin, newborn acne (Milia is left untouched), scratches and bruises. I will also take away that tired sleepy look under Mum and Dads eyes too!

On average my client galleries are HUGE

I’m an over shooter and if your baby is amazing then I’ll just keep photographing. I like to give my client as many images as possible and unfortunately retouching is an extremely long process.

I’m a perfectionist and I like my work to look amazing. Occasionally difficult retouching jobs will delay other galleries in the queue – I apologise in advance if that happens. This is very common during peek newborn booms around Easter and Christmas, and during school holidays when my attention is otherwise diverted with three children home!


When will I know my photos are ready?

I like to keep my clients up-to-date with the progress of their gallery in the editing queue. Generally you will not hear from me until the week that yours is expected to be completed. Once I have retouched your gallery I upload the High-resolution jpegs to a server which will automatically email you a link once they are ready to download. This link will expire after 7 days so it is important that you download them right away. It takes about 12-18 hours for my computer to upload these files so if you are planning a trip away at the same time I forecast your gallery being ready then let me know so I hold off on the transfer.

Once you have downloaded your images it is now your responsibility to protect them. I recommend backing up your images to a hard drive, a number of different thumb drives, uploading to Dropbox or iCloud but most importantly I want you to print them and admire them on your walls!


Do you have an example of a newborn session I can see?
