GIFT CARD

Always Belle
Hi, I’m Elle, a paediatric nurse and newborn photographer in Eaglemont, Melbourne. I totally understand the want to freeze every precious memory throughout a child’s entire life. They grow up so quickly!
 
Newborn photographs are the perfect start. 
 
I love to capture the squishy rolls, their little fingers and toes, their gassy smiles, all of their cuteness, and the love and bonding happening between mum and bub – and dads too. 
 
The photography magic happens in the comfort of my beautiful studio. The perfect chance for you to relax and rest after days of visitors, appointments and being on the go. 
 
Your baby will be safe, happy and toasty warmth as we capture all of their beautiful features that make them so special. You will fall in love with this unforgettable experience all over again when you look back at your photos.

QUESTIONS

When is the best time to photography my baby?

Babies are best photographed within the first three weeks of life. During this time they are more likely to be nice and sleepy and less likely to be disturbed whilst being curled into gorgeous positions to be photographed. This also mostly avoids any newborn acne that tends to develop after three weeks.

Where will the session be held?

Sessions are always in our beautiful Eaglmont studio, 10km northeast of the Melbourne CBD (just next to Ivanhoe) where we have access to all the equipment required and the environment can be kept comfortable for everyone.

How long does a newborn session take?

There is no telling how long the session will take but we usually try to keep it under two hours. The baby is the boss during these sessions so please just remember that there is no hurry. As far as poses/inspiration images go, there is no guarantee that we will get any specific images but we will surely do our best to get the images that are of the most importance to you and your family.

Can I purchase more photographs from my session?

Absolutely! And you will want to! Your gift voucher entitles you to a full newborn session where we will aim for 20-30 photographs of your family with your new baby. Following the session, you will see all your photographs and be able to choose which ones you would like to purchase. Digital collections start from $895.

Is it possible to have family portraits taken too?
Of course! We always photograph family portraits at the end of the session. You can opt not to have these photographs taken however we will highly encourage it. Your baby will not stay this little for long and it is important to have beautiful keepsakes to remember this time. If you are requesting sibling portraits, these will be done at the beginning of the session so that children can then be taken for a walk to the park or out for lunch whilst the rest of the session is completed.
When should I book?

It is never too early to book your newborn session! Because your baby’s birthdate is unpredictable, we will reserve a time frame for you. If you know that you will be induced or have a c-section booked, your session date can be booked in advance. If your baby is going to come when it is ready, we will mark down your due date and expect you to contact her as soon as your baby arrives.
Most of our clients book their sessions before the end of their second trimester to avoid missing out. Due to work commitments at the Royal Children’s Hospital, there are only limited sessions available and it is therefore important to book early to save any disappointment.
Despite this, due to the nature of birthdates being unpredictable, we may have some availability if you are nearing the end of your pregnancy or your baby has already been born. Please don’t hesitate to contact us to enquire about this.

How much does it cost if we would like to purchase more photographs?

Digital collections begin at $895. If you would like a full pricing brochure please get in touch so that we can send it to you!

How long do we have to wait until the images are ready?

You will get to see and choose your photographs on the day of your session. By the time you have dressed your baby and settled in to give them a feed before the trip home, your images will be ready for viewing. Following your session, any photographs purchased will be ready in two weeks and any products purchased will be ready in 4-6 weeks.

Can I just purchase digital images?

Yes! Digital collections are purchased first and any products are added on following this if you wish.

How do I book?

Newborn sessions are booked depending on your due date. For more information or to check availability, please complete the form above and we will be in touch ASAP

PROCESS

0E0A6914sofie

– STEP 1: BOOK YOUR SESSION –

Let’s get you booked in! Firstly,  fill out my contact form to check my availability around your due date. Due to also actively working as a nurse, I am only available to take on a limited amount of sessions each week. Don’t waste any time and get in touch by completing the form above, these gift vouchers are subject to availability

– STEP 2: BEFORE YOUR SESSION –

What I normally do is pencil in your due date and then we schedule the exact date and time for the session once your baby arrives. We try to get all of the details taken care of prior to the birth since things in that first week can get a bit overwhelming at times!

If you have any ideas of how you would like your images styled we can also discuss this prior to your session, otherwise, I will tailor a session just for you. Once your baby arrives and your session is booked, I will email you a small guide for how to prepare on the morning of your shoot!

– STEP 3: DURING YOUR SESSION –

This is when all the magic happens! The hardest part of your day should be leaving the house, as once you arrive it’s time to relax! Have a coffee and a muffin and put your feet up….some parents will even have a little sleep! You can let me know what colours you would like throughout your gallery, any poses that you do like or don’t like and we can begin capturing memories of your beautiful baby and your family. I will aim for a gallery of 20-30 images.

-STEP 4: THE REVEAL-

It’s time to see your photographs! Following your session, we will take a short break to prepare your photographs and they will then be ready to view in a same-day cinematic experience just shortly after your session finishes.  Beginning with a custom-made slideshow to music you will be able to sit back and enjoy looking at your new family!

Following this viewing, you will then be able to decide which photographs you would like to purchase and how you would like to display your photographs. The studio is full of samples for you to view, feel and touch and I will be there to help you if you need it!

Payment plans are available if needed.
