Newborn photography sessions are done at Kristy’s boutique studio generally within the first 14 days of life.
During this early stage of life, babies usually sleep more and more easily posed. As they get older, they tend to be less flexible, are more alert and it is harder to get 'posed' shots. In saying this, all babies are different and we work with what they are comfortable with. You can request a specific pose, but I will never guarantee anything. Your babies safety is my number one priority.
Each session Kristy likes to use a mix of both lifestyle and posed styled shots. As Kristy is a natural light photographer, newborn sessions are always done in the morning.
Each session includes use of Kristy’s vast range of props she has collected over the years from both local and international sources and are available for selection for all of her clients. A questionnaire is sent out before your session to guide her on your preferences. Each session can be expected to take approximately 2-3 hours and includes sibling and parent shots which are usually done at the beginning of each session.
Kristy normally books out several months in advance, so it is best to book in your newborn session while you are still pregnant. I pencil in your due date and as soon your baby arrives we book a date within that short timeframe.
Kristy always tries to accommodate late bookings however she does limit her bookings of newborns each month due to the unpredictability of dates and booked sessions will always get preference.
If you happen to stumble across this site after your baby is born, Kristy will do her best to try to fit you in within that timeframe however is not always possible. If you missed those first few weeks, we can still book in a session however as baby gets older the session will change slightly usually into more lifestyle and not those posed, curled shots.
Babies over the 4 month mark are always welcome and sessions are classed as sitter sessions. Please contact Kristy for more information on these.
Please do not hesitate to contact Kristy if you have any questions at all.
