Maternity & Newborn

Yay! I love, love, love new babies! Congratulations!

Newborn portraits are taken when the baby is less than 10 days old. They sleep a lot sounder and to get those beautiful, scrunchy, curly newborn shots it is best.

To schedule your appointment you will want to contact us as soon as you know you’d like to book our studio for your session – BEFORE the baby is born.  We are limited on the amount that we can take monthly and tend to book each month well in advance. If you have already delivered your baby then contact us and we’ll see if we have any open days for you, you never know! When you contact us we will get your due date -with the knowledge that babies have a mind of their own and can come early or late, we’ll check the schedule and we will email over the invoice. Once the invoice is paid then you are confirmed for your newborn session. From there you will contact the studio by phone, e-mail or text to let us know that the baby has been born. Now, we don’t need to be the first person you call but as soon as you can so we can give you some appointment times to choose from.

These portraits will be your favorite! Any baby being photographed under 2 months would be considered a newborn when scheduling your session because there is simply not enough time in the regular session.
