Newborns – About Your Session
The session fee is due at time of booking. Sessions last between 2-3 hours for a bump or newborn session.
The Studio highly recommends having your newborn photographed within the first 2 weeks and to book in while you are in your second trimester. This is when you can capture those newborn moments and poses at their best. It is also when they are at their most flexible and usually prior to any colic or baby pimples developing.
Pre-booking ensures your newborn session, this allows the Studio to put your due date in the diary and be prepared for a newborn session. Pre booking during your second trimester is advisable.
Once your baby is born, it is important that you contact the Studio within the first 48 hours to finalise your session date and time.
If you would also like an older sibling photographed with your newborn they are welcome to attend the first 15mins of the session to capture those photos, after that time, you will need to arrange for someone to come and collect them, so we can finalise the newborn session, as a lot of time and patience is required.
There is a required $500 minimum spend on every photo session booked by the Studio.
Approximately 1-2 weeks after your sitting, you will be invited back to the studio to view your images and make your selection during a personalised order meeting.
Images are projected onto a large screen to ensure you see the full quality and detail of your images, and Natalie will help assist you in making the right choices for your home and needs.
Maternity – About Your Session
I suggest having your maternity images taken around 34 – 36 weeks. The session is approximately 1.5 – 2 hrs and includes 2-3 set ups of your choice. Usually 1-2 indoor set ups and 1 outdoor set up. The Studio offers a range of gowns, clothing and flower crowns to create a beautiful unique look for yourself, you are however, also invited to bring your own clothing if you have something specific in mind. Maternity sessions are usually relaxed and calming, a beautiful way to welcome the new baby into your life. Having your hair and make up done professionally is a great way to feel glamorous, as it’s truly a pamper day (even with swollen feet). Once booked, we will send you a list of items we need you to bring (ie underwear styles and colours).
Most clients purchasing a maternity session find the USB packages to be the best option for their needs.
Approximately 1-2 weeks after your sitting you will be invited back to the studio to view your images and make your selection, or you can choose to select your images from your bump session at the same time you do your newborn order, please note however, they are still separate orders and both still have minimum spends.
