The Experience

Session at my home studio

Hi there :) My studio is located in Willagee, which is close both to Fremantle and Perth. It's created at my house, nested in our sunken lounge. Its full of light and gives that cosy, relaxed feeling when you walk in. I will ask you to take off your shoes and take you seat on the sofa. There will be water,  some fruit and snacks ready for you on the table. I will offer tee and coffee. When you're settled I will explain the plan for the session and ask for your opinion on prepared sets. There is always time to change things and add anything you can see in the studio. I want you to love the images we create. I have a rather large collection  of backdrops, wraps, baskets, boxes, outfits, hats and head ties for you newborn and  a 1 year old and maternity. I might occasionally need your support during the session with settling and feeding the baby, but rather than that, you should just sit back and enjoy the experience :)

I hope to see you and your family really soon in my Happy Place :)

How it Works

How it Works
( newborn session mainly)

Scheduling

The ideal time for a Newborn Portrait Session is when the baby is between 5 and 14 days old. Babies are very sleepy at this time, have little sensitivity to touch and sound, and are very comfortable in those adorable curled-up infant photography poses we all adore so much.

Because the window to have a newborn photography session is so little, I recommend booking your baby's portrait session ahead of time while you are still pregnant.

Of course I understand that babies often don't come when they are expected, for that reason all my newborn portrait appointments are on tentative basis. I keep in touch with you for the latest updates. Once your baby arrives we can move the photography appointment if necessary.

 

Prepare your bag

I have all different props, baskets and backdrops in the studio but of course you all welcome to bring some outfits you would like to be incorporated into the photo shoot. To personalize your session, I will send you an email to find out what your preferences in style are. We recommend you come to us with the bare necessities like diapers, formula, dummies ect.

Prepare Your Baby

A well fed baby is a happy sleepy baby! I recommend feeding right before you leave your home. Plan on an extra feedings (sometimes 2 or more). The sessions tend to make babies hungry and you will need to feed them to put them back to sleep. I suggest trying to keeping them awake before the session, including the car ride over. Don’t worry about baby acne or little scratches. During the retouching  I will either eliminate or minimize these imperfections. If your baby has extremely dry skin, try putting baby lotion on prior to coming to your session and bring extra with you. This will assist with the retouching process.  Please make sure they aren’t wearing tight socks because they will leave sock lines at their ankles. My sessions are usually done with the diaper on (don't worry it will not on visible on the photos) unless you request the nappy off.

Prepare Your Family

For any family members being photographed, we recommend dark pants and black or white shirts. For younger siblings, they can wear a light coloured clothes. For mothers who really want to shine, we recommend professional hair and makeup (you won’t regret it). It will be warm in the studio to keep the newborn comfortable.  Moms, don’t worry about the baby weight you haven’t lost, or any skin issues you may still have. We can retouch all that away if you wish! Mom’s and Dad’s hands will be shown in many of the close up photographs. These are just recommendation, please drop me an email if you have any questions at all.

Timing

Plan on being at the studio for around 2- 2,5 hours. The younger the baby, the less likely it is we will need all 2 hours, but we still recommend it to avoid any stress. We like to leave plenty of time for extra feedings, diaper changes and the fussiest of moods. Sessions very often consist of feeding the baby, settling the baby and then few minutes of actual photo shooting. We will use a bean bag and then 3-4 arranged sets to give you a variety of images.

One Last Thing …  ENJOY! 

No matter what your baby does, please know that I am always relaxed. This session is supposed to be a special experience for you and I don’t want you stressed if the baby starts to cry.  We have plenty of time allowed for your session. If we need to take a break to feed, walk, rock, etc., we can do that. I want you to enjoy the experience of your session and this special bonding moment for your family.

Step 01

Photo session

The photo session will last 2-2,5h. I will have few arrangements ready for you to choose from and adjust to your liking. I am very flexible and we can play around with props and wraps so we are both pleased with the result :) If you requested family photos they will be taken at the end of the session.

Step 02

Getting the gallery ready, choosing memories to treasure

After the session within 2 weeks you will get access to you private online gallery. The images are going to be photoshop touched. The size of the gallery depends on package you want to order, usually its double the amount ( if you order 5 you will receive at least 10, maybe 15 to choose from). Take your time to choose your images and email me back the chosen numbers.

Step 03

Postproduction, final gallery

At that point you will need pay the rest of your fees. Within 3-4 weeks you will receive your final gallery, fully edited. You can still email me with any concerns you have regarding the images. I offer a profressional print in sizes 4x6 and 6x9 and bigger if requasted.  They are done on highest quality art paper and really show quality of the image. If you want to print yourself I advise to print in professional lab. I do not take responsibility  for low quality, quick prints in places such as : Office Works or Kmart.
