What to expect:

As a newborn model your baby will be used for teaching another photographer what I do. 

Your session is free and you receive 4 beautiful high resolution digital images for your time, chosen by the photographer. My booked clients are my top priority so your baby’s images can take longer to receive.  

Now, some babies don’t always cooperate on the day of their first “model shoot” and that’s okay BUT….there are some babies, that are like putty in my hands and they just sleep the entire time. I like to refer to these newborns as Rock Stars because without them it’s very hard to get through all that I have to teach my students.  Don’t get me wrong, it’s important for my attendees to see how I handle the “fussy” baby so it’s good to have a mixture of both. In the case of this workshop there will be 12 photography students, but they will just be observing me work, they will not touch or pose your baby, only me and my assistant. There are two models on the day and I will use the baby that is the most settled and switch them around when one needs a little snack. 

Unlike my paying clients, my model babies don’t get to customise their session because they are there so that I can teach specific poses and setups. So if your new baby has an older sibling or if you want family pictures then it’s best to book a “real” session with me or another photographer.

As my workspace in not very big I so ask that you bring only 1 support person with you (husband, mum etc). Unless siblings are needed for the photoshoot please do not bring them along. 

I do apologise in advance , I wont be talking  with you much during the session. My main focus will be on my students, so feel free to bring a book or something to do during the session. 

Please read and follow the session guide before the session to best prepare yourself and baby for the day. (You don't have to fill in the contract in the session guide, but the one below). 

Contact me on 021 277 1987, if needed on the day of the shoot.
