A Premium or Heirloom newborn session captures your dreamy newborn curled up and cosy and styled with the use of my props such as baskets, backdrops, hats, headbands and wraps. Along with the beautiful posed images of your baby, styled to your taste, I also capture precious family portraits and your baby’s siblings/grandparents are welcome to join you.
The best time to hold this style of newborn session is within the first 2 weeks after birth when your baby will be very sleepy and easy to work with. Styled sessions with older babies are possible but it can be difficult to pose a more alert baby and we are less likely to be able to capture curled up sleepy poses.
Family photos at home are either taken against a blank wall, window or on a bed depending on the look you want. In the studio we use our plain paper backdrops.
I am fully mobile Auckland-wide, so I can bring my studio to you and photograph your baby in the comfort of your home. This is definitely the most stress-free option for everyone as your baby will be more relaxed than if they have to spend time in the car, and you will not have the worry of leaving the house on time. A home session is also preferable if you have other children as they will be more relaxed in their own home, particularly as the session takes 1-2 hours. Not a lot of space is required, just about 3m2 in a room with natural light, that can be heated to a very cosy 27 degrees for the comfort of your baby. Most of the images in our Newborn Gallery were captured in clients homes.
If a home session does not suit, for whatever reason, I have a lovely studio situated in Orewa, 25 mins north of Auckland Central.
