Newborn Photography Info
When to book your baby photographer
Your newborn session can be booked months in advance or after the birth depending on available space. We use your due date as a placeholder and once your baby has been born we can then book in a secure date and time.
What’s the best time for your photography session
The best time to do a baby photography shoot is within the first ten days, this is the time when they are asleep more than they are awake and are happy to be molded into those cute squished up poses. This is not to say that we can’t get baby to sleep if they are older than ten days, as we certainly can. It can just take a little longer depending on the baby. For our classic baby photography sessions there is no age limit so you decide when you would like to book. By the time your appointment rolls around you may not be feeling up to it. Do not be afraid to reschedule!! (I know what it’s like!)
Who can be in the photos
Your baby photography shoot is yours so I’m happy for you to include any family and fur babies that you wish. You want to invite Nana and Pop? Awesome!
In home or studio?
Baby photographer Auckland wide
Because I’m mobile most of my new parents opt for an In home photography session. You and your family are far more relaxed in your own home. You don’t need to be worried about how tidy your home is (I have three kids!!). I will not be photographing your house. I bring everything I need. For the premium session you will need to come to me in my cozy in home studio in Orewa.
During your session
When I arrive I have a look around your home and pick out the best spots to use for photos. This might be in a bedroom or living room depending on the light. Dont worry about any mess you would be supprised at little room I need.
If you have opted for a premium session then I will bring in all of the props and blankets for you to choose from. If you have selected a classic session then I just bring my light.
The whole shoot will really be dictated by your baby and I just work with what they want to do. For example some babies may be quite windy so don’t like to be laid on their tummy or some hate to be wrapped. I have a general set of images I try to get every session but I love to get creative and make your images original and reflect your family.
Flaky/spotty baby skin
This is 100% normal! Don’t be worried about your baby’s skin. Almost all the baby’s I photograph have to have blemishes removed in post if that’s what you want.
What session should I book
This is very much a personal preference and I’m happy to help you decide. Here are the two sessions below
A classic session is a lovely simple photo shoot about you and your new family member. No props are used and babies are kept dressed in a simple sleeveless plain bodysuit. The photos of the baby alone are taken on the bed with a plain bedspread. The family photos are either done on the bed, against a blank wall or mix of both.
A classic newborn shoot can be done at any age but generally the first few weeks are best. You can choose to do this session in your own home or in my studio.
The premium session comes with the use of all my blankets, wraps, headbands and hats. The two hour session allows time for settling and multiple poses. You can include as many or as little props as you like. At the beginning of the photo shoot we talk about the colours you would like to use and you have full control of the style.
Family photos are also included in this session and I do a range for you to choose from.
Preferable premium newborn photos are taken within the first 10 days while your baby is still very sleepy and can easily be molded into cute curled up poses. Book either a studio or in home session.
