Photographing your precious new bundle of joy takes a little bit of extra time, patience and care than an average portrait session.
The ideal time for a newborn session is 6-10 days while your baby is nice and sleepy (before they start to get more active and wriggly!). It is best to book a (tentative) date for your Newborn session towards the end of your pregnancy and then contact me once you have settled back home with your new bub to organise the specific date and time.
A Fox & Willow Newborn session can last for up to 4 hours to allow for a range of different poses (both with baby by themselves and with parents) and will be worked around feeding, changing, comforting and sleeping all to make sure that you and Baby are as comfortable, happy and natural as possible.
I have a range of blankets, wraps and props which can be used in the session and you are more than welcome to use any special (or cute) outfits or accessories also. I prefer to do Newborn sessions in the comfort of your own home providing there are some large-ish windows to give natural light – this can often be found in people’s bedrooms which is great because it allows me to set up a make-shift studio on a large comfortable surface. If such a space is not available in your own home, I am also able to provide a comfortable location for the session if required.
For $430, a Fox & Willow Newborn Package includes:
- Pre-session consultation via phone and/or email to discuss creative direction and instructions for the shoot
- Two to Four hour Newborn session
- Travel to & from the session location (generally your home – within Sydney metropolitan area)
- Editing & proofing of 35+ images
- High resolution digital images (35+) on USB
I would be happy to organise prints from your shoot and can discuss a range of options with you either in advance of your shoot or once you have received your photos.
