When is the best time to photography my baby?
Babies are best photographed within the first two 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 my home studio in Moonee Ponds, Melbourne 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 tries to keep it under three 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 most importance to you and your family.
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 in 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 long do we have to wait until the images are ready?
Your ordering appointment will be scheduled for approximately two weeks following your session. This session is where you choose and order your images. These will be taken home in printed and digital copies on the day!
Can I just purchase digital images?

All of the images you purchase come with a digital and printed copy. Digital images cannot be bought seperately. Printed images are the best way to archive these beautiful memories and are made for you using high quality materials to ensure they out live us all.

How do I book?
Newborn sessions are booked depending on your due date. For more information or to check availability, please email me here and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
