What to expect before your newborn session



Most mothers contact me to book right after their 12 week check up. This allows plenty of time for planning AND fitting in a maternity shoot as well.

Once you are all booked in I will send out a questionnaire. This is what I use to help plan your session so think about your answers! This is the time to tell me anything about your family that you might like included. For example – massive Disney fans, or support this team. Anything that we can use to help personalize your shoot.

Once you have filled in the questionnaire, feel free to send me any image examples of what you would love to capture during your session. The more the merrier!

The day before I will send out an email with my address and other last minute details.ย 



When you arrive at the studio we will unpack any goodies you may have bought with you to include in the session. I will run over my plan with you and get you to fill in some paperwork. We will have a chat about your baby and discuss things such as – last feed, do they take a pacifier, do they hate being wrapped etc. Then I undress and wrap your baby and off we go!

As we progress through the session I will be moving your baby from the bean bag to props and back to the bean bag again. I will explain all of this as I go so you know what is happening. There is a chair in the studio so you can watch as I work.ย 

Safety is my number one concern and I will explain certain things as I go. Such as why the heater is positioned where it is and why I am positioning the baby a certain way. I will also explain why I am not using some of the props set up – I am listening to queues from your baby and won’t place them into any situation where I am not 100% certain they will be safe. For example if your baby is only in a light sleep and has a strong startle reflex – I won’t be putting them in any buckets – as they may startle and hurt themselves.

The studio will be warm and the session can last up to 4 hours so please dress accordingly!



After your session I begin the process of editing the images. This takes roughly 4 hours. About 2 to 3 weeks after your sesison, you will come back to the studio to view your images. This is when you can choose to upgrade your package or keep it as is. I do not hard sell, we look at the images, you tell me what you want to aim for, and that’s what we cut down to!ย  Any albums or frames are ordered and you come back to pick them up at another time.ย All digital versions purchased are up loaded to dropbox and a link is emailed to you.

Introducing Lily!

I LOVE my “job”

Every client is unique – every bubba has their own personality. It is a little bit EXTRA special when that client happens to be a long time friend and that bubba is her daughter Lily! Hayley and I have known each other for a long time – we meet working as editors in the wedding video industry. It was such a fun session AND we got to catch up at the same time! Bonus ๐Ÿ™‚

Last week

I had Olivia in the studio for her newborn session – she is soooo gorgeous! She was 3 weeks old, but that didn’t stop her rocking out the newborn poses like a pro ๐Ÿ™‚
The optimal age for a newborn session is under 14 days. During the first 2 weeks newborn bubs are usually more sleepy and are definitely more curly ๐Ÿ™‚ This really allows you to pose them and get the gorgeous sleepy, curly poses that parents will cherish. I always feel so heart broken when a client shows me examples of what they would love to achieve and they are all newborn shots however…. their bubs are 3 months old already ๐Ÿ™
Don’t get me wrong – 3 months is a gorgeous time as well but the posing and finished result are very different from a newborn session.
Olivia’s Mum loved her images, it was so awesome to see how stoked she was ๐Ÿ™‚

Check out the gorgeous Olivia below (those LIPS!)

My studio is based in Winston Hills and I service the Hills District, Parramatta, Castle Hill and Western Sydney. Like what you see? ย Book here.

Albums and frames and USB’S oh my!

I have been a very busy bee over the last few weeks getting some new products ready to launch! They are gorgeous and I’m in love! In a society where everything is instant and digital the printing of images is often forgotten. “We just want digital versions”. I have heard this SO many times during my years as a photographer. Trouble is…most people never get around to actually DOING any printing. These gorgeous moments stay on a USB in a draw. This is one of the main reasons that ALL sessions I do are printed and the families select the images they love from the prints. They take them home with them on the spot! This also solves another issue…when the images ARE printed..badly. I use a professional lab and have my monitors calibrated to their colour profiles. What I see on my screen is what I receive as prints. So now I am super excited to add affordable album and framing options. Check them out, aren’t they gorgeous???

The Lean-Fores

Last week I had one of my all time fav families in the studio again, this time introducing the newest Lean-Fore! I started photographing this gorgeous family 7 years ago and it has been such an honour to document the many stages as they have grown from 3 to 4 and now 5 ๐Ÿ™‚


During the session

we had a look back at some of the earlier photos we had taken – all the way back to Samuel’s first birthday! I love that the images I capture for my clients become more and more valuable and treasured as time passesย โคโคโค

Check out some of these images from our shoot last week!
