Newborn Lifestyle Session
Newborn lifestyle sessions are done in your home from birth until around 12 weeks of age although the best time to photograph your new addition is between 5-14 days. This session is perfect for those parents wanting a more relaxed, informal session capturing real moments and raw connection. I adore documentary photography - the sessions are so meaningful and I love being able to tell such an important and special story for parents of newborn babies.
There is very little posing during a lifestyle shoot. I simply turn up to your home with my camera and capture your new baby with parents and siblings in their very first home. I also supply a selection of beautiful organic cotton wraps, outfits and cot sheets for you to use if you wish. I love natural, candid moments ... I adore siblings and watching them get to know and interact with their new baby brother or sister. I love that you have all your familiar things around you and I want you to feel relaxed and comfortable while I document this special time for you. If you have a beloved fur baby then they are most welcome to join in too! My aim is to create a calm and relaxed environment for you to take some time to enjoy the tiny human you have created .. while I capture every minute.
Newborn Studio Family Session
From October 2018 I will be offering a newborn family studio session at my new home studio based in Sovereign Palms, Kaiapoi. This session is designed for baby's between 5-14 days old and incorporates both posed and lifestyle photography - I link to think you get the best of both worlds! During your session I will capture some simple posed shots of your brand new baby on his/her own and with siblings and parents too. I love connection - its such an important part of any shoot I do so even though you will be in a studio setting, the emphasis will still be on capturing beautiful natural moments and raw connection. I provide everything for this shoot which includes a gorgeous selection of wraps, little outfits and head bands. Please feel free to bring your own special blankets and toys if you wish.
Maternity Photography Session
Maternity photography sessions should be taken when you are between 32-27 weeks pregnant. Photos can be taken in your home with a more candid lifestyle feel to the images or at an outdoor location that is meaningful to you.
