Plan your belly / baby / little people / family photos

bellies:


Best time for a pregnancy photo session is between 32 - 36 weeks, remembering that every woman is individual.


Let's have a chat about colour and styling to achieve the best and most comfortable look for you.


 

A pregnancy photo session can take place at two separate locations; either both outside or one location outside and one inside for a different look.

 


It is always important that we plan and discuss the best time and locations to suit your needs and ideas and if there are any type of images that you love or have reservations about, please, I'd love to hear it.



babies / little people / family:


Best time for newborn photography is between 4 - 12 days.

 
I always begin photo sessions early in the morning due to the natural soft light and as all parents know; babies and children are always happier in the morning.


For newborn photos, please make sure your new baby has a full tummy and a warm environment.
 

During the session, feeding and settling takes up about half of the time of the session as being a tiny model is hard work.

 

If the photo session is to be at your home, it is best to de-clutter a room which has good natural light so we can achieve the best possible results for your family photos.


I will arrive to your home with props, blankets & wraps but you are more than welcome to bring out any special blankets or toys you'd like used.

 
If you are travelling to my Mt Martha home studio you are more than welcome to bring any special blankets / toys you'd like to incorporate into the photos.


Before the photo session, please apply a loose nappy and an outfit you are happy for your baby to have some photos in and which is easy to remove to minimise the chance of waking your new baby.

 

At your home, please have some old towels, facewashers and wipes ready: little accidents will happen.
 

I always encourage new parents to be involved in the photo shoot so be prepared:  Things to consider are clean hands and fingernails, style hair and a touch of make up for mums.


Neutral to mid tone colours for parents and siblings work best, please ask me for suggestions. 

 

If your baby or child is unwell please let me know so we can re-schedule, as a mum I understand.  A sick baby / child equals a stressful time for parents.


Ensure your children are not hungry, thirsty (bring snacks / drink to on location shoot) or tired as we all know what happens next!



And….


Most of all..


Relax, have fun and expect the unexpected!!!
