Session Information

Newborn sessions comprise of a two or three hour studio, or in home session. We advise that the session should take place within the first two weeks of the baby’s life. Booking in advanced is essential (it is never to early to make a booking) as we only book a certain amount of newborn sessions per month.

We will request your expected due date, and will follow up with you on this date. Upon your advice of the arrival of your newborn we will confirm a session date and time. We host a majority of our newborn sessions within our home studio. If travelling is not something you are comfortable with, we can arrange for in home sessions – incurring an additional fee.

We recommend a newborn session be conducted when the baby is under 2 weeks old, this is due to the following:
This age allows for a deeper sleep for the newborn, making the session easier for posing and curling, after two weeks of age, a newborn is more likely to be disturbed while sleeping and can also become unsettled. However, if your newborn is older than the recommended age group and is still within 6 weeks of age, do not hesitate to contact us. We will still be able to achieve the poses for a newborn session.

We provide all props for a session; however, we understand that certain objects have a sentimental meaning to you. If you feel the need to bring your own props, we will be more than happy to cater to your needs. Family and sibling posing is included in your session. You will receive 20 professionally edited digital images in high resolution in an online gallery. Upon completion of your session we will also confirm a booking for your complimentary sitter session.
