The Session, The Prices, The Process

The Session
Here are some ideas on the types of photo sessions I can cater for:

Maternity - around 8 months so you still feel comfortable
Newborn - ideally within 2 weeks, but just whenever you feel ready
3-4 months - baby starts changing facial expressions and getting better at tummy time
6-9 months - when baby is sitting up, but preferably before crawling, awesome age!
12 months  - photos on or around their first birthday and can incorporate a cake smash!
Family portraits - for families with older children, and don't forget your pets!
Birthday parties - including details, family and friends, can include a cake smash.
Baby showers - including details, family and friends

All sessions take approximately 1-2 hours, with the exception of newborns.
Newborn sessions can be 2-4 hours long to allow for nursing, snuggling and relaxing.  There is no rush for newborn sessions, and no extra charge for the extra time.

The Process
You send me an email indicating your interest in booking a session.

I will email/call back and we can book a date and I will ask some questions to get to know you better/find out exactly what you are looking for in your photo session.

I will either come to your home or we will find a fun outdoor location for your photo shoot.

For newborn and baby photos, I love to come to your home as you and your baby will feel more comfortable and it makes it easier to work around nursing and naps.

The day before the shoot, if it's an outdoor shoot, we will discuss the weather forecast if it's looking like rain. On the day I will be in touch two hours beforehand to make a final decision.  We will re-book a date if necessary.

We shoot!

I usually put a photo up on facebook once I've started editing, then when I'm finished I select my favourites and put them on my blog.

Within two weeks I will have the disk on it's way to you!

Please feel free to contact me if you would like to chat about all the options.
