First off, CONGRATULATIONS! I am so excited that you’ve decided that I’m the person you want to photograph your new family.
Newborn sessions come in all shapes and sizes. There are so many beautiful ways that we can capture your new baby and your family and it’s so important to choose the one that feels right for you. I don’t want every single newborn gallery I create to look or feel the same. I want it to feel like yours.
Every session will include full family shots, portraits of your baby, gorgeous details, and sibling photos.
But the balance and focus of what we capture will vary depending on where your session is held.
So, which one is right for you?
If your home is where your heart is, these sessions are for you.
When I come to your home, I am aiming to capture your family in your element. I’m not trying to make your home into a studio (I have an actual studio for that). I’m there to photograph YOU. All of you. Real newborn life in your real home.
Grab a coffee and snuggle in. I want to see you in comfy clothes, cuddled on the sofa feeding your baby, jumping on the bed… whatever it is that you usually do at home, that’s what I’m there to capture.
I’ll seek out the beautiful corners of light, and I’ll prompt you to connect with each other. But these sessions are very much led by you, your lifestyle, and your space.
These sessions are perfect for:
Sounds too much like hard work? Then maybe you’re a perfect family for a studio session…
2. Studio Sessions
The Surry Hills studio is a beautiful, light and neutral space in my home. It’s small but perfectly formed, and if you’re looking for the studio look then this is perfect for you.
When you come to the studio, the focus is on portraits. These sessions are more directed than in-home sessions. It’s a calm and relaxing experience where you can sit back, relax, and drink endless cups of tea (made by a proper Englishwoman).
Older siblings are very welcome in the studio, and – just like in-home sessions – I recommend that we get all of their shots captured as quickly as possible while they are happy and engaged. Your partner can then take them off to school or daycare while we slow the session down and move on to focus on your baby.
Studio sessions are perfect for:
Not adventurous enough for you…?
3. Sunset Adventures
Ready to burst that newborn bubble? There’s absolutely no reason why your session has to be inside.
I’ll bring some beautiful blankets to wrap your baby in, and a moses basket. Let’s head to the park or the beach and capture your family in our beautiful surroundings. These sessions run similar to my family sunset sessions, but they are typically slower and we take as many breaks as we need to for feeds, nappy changes, and cuddles.
Your session will focus more on lifestyle family shots, capturing the ‘in-between’ cuddles, kisses, and laughter. Always, of course, incorporating our beautiful backdrop into your gallery. But don’t worry, there will be plenty of time for newborn portraits – in the moses basket if baby is happy to be put down, or in your arms if not.
