Thank you for contacting me and for you interest in newborn photography.
Congratulations on your pregnancy. I hope all is going well for you so far. Such an exciting time for you and how wonderful that you are considering beautiful portraits of your new addition!
We humans like to think of ourselves as fixed, defined individuals, but the truth is, from cradle to grave, our personhood is in a continual state of change. At no point is this more evident than during the first few weeks in the life of a newborn — eyes, ears, nose, head shape, hair, skin colour, and weight can change drastically from day to day. It is my honor to freeze a second in this rushing torrent of development, preserving a unique moment in a new life that will never be the same again.
I produce warm, timeless documents of the new lives that are bundled through my studio doors. My focus is on creating beautiful portraits that radiate affectionate warmth. From posing baby on the day though to my meticulous editing. I will aim to give you honest, tender and considered photographs to share your truth. Images that not only reflect what you see, but more importantly, what you feel.
You will find my price menu HERE.
The session fee ($200) is due at the time of booking to lock in your date. What I do is pencil in your due date and we confirm a time and day once baby arrives. All sessions take place in my cosy residential studio in Burnside (see in my stdio HERE). 2-3 weeks after your session you will come back to the studio for an ordering session. From here you can you can simply purchase the images you love.
I have a passion for beautiful prints. In-fact I love print so much that I personally print your images on my fine-art Epson printer on some of the world’s finest art paper. I have found with my own family photos in this digital age it has been so easy to have my photos hidden away on my computer and forgotten about .I happily sell digital files. I want you to have these files to print keepsake photos and give it to your parents, but I also want to make sure that you have a visually beautiful, touchable record of the session to take home too, so with each digital image comes a mactching matted print. You also get some print credit to put towards some products. Our printing and boutique framing is all crafted in-house personally by me and my husband. These are made with archival quality materials, so you can guarantee our frames will last a lifetime. Find out more about our products HERE.
To guarantee a spot and this current pricing it is best to book as soon as you can as I fill up fast.
If my work speaks to your heart, I would be honored to hear back from you.
