QUESTIONS

When is the best time to photography my baby?

Maternity sessions are done between 32-36 weeks.

Newborns are best photographed within the first 1-3 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. Newborn sessions can be done up to 8 weeks of age but be aware that babies may be more alert and may not do all the poses after that 3 week point.

Sitter sessions are best done when your baby has begun sitting up but is not yet crawling. At this age they normally haven’t developed any stranger danger and will give us some gorgeous expresssions.

Cake Smashes can be done at any stage from 11 months to celebrate a first birthday

These sessions include a complimentary 5×7 matted photograph.

Digital collections and artwork are available to purchase in your ordering appointment following your session. 

When should I book?

It is never too early to book in! 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 during their second trimester. To maintain the high standards and 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.

Where are the photography sessions held?

Sessions are held in my beautiful studio in Eaglemont Village, Melbourne where we have access to all the equipment required and the environment can be kept comfortable for everyone.

Eaglemont is located just next to Ivanhoe which is about 10km North East of the CBD

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.

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

Not long because images will be available to view immediately after your session! Whilst baby is being dressed and ready for the trip home, I will prepare your images to be viewed on the big screen where you can choose any that you would like to purchase.

How much will it cost to purchase more images?

Immediately following your session you will have your ordering appointment where you will be able to choose the images you would like to purchase.

Individual images can be purchased for $195.

Digital Collections start from $895.

Wall art and keepsake items can be purchased with a digital collection and start from $250

Products are made with the highest quality materials sourced from all over the world and we know you are going to love seeing your beautiful images displayed around your home.

Can I just purchase digital images?

Absolutely. Once you see your images you will choose a digital file collection of the photographs that you love. Following this you will be able to see, touch and explore all of our products to choose the best way for you and your family to display their photographs.
