Mini Maternity Sessions

Mini Maternity sessions are held in the comfort of my studio. I approach these sessions with simplicity, and aim to capture the beauty of the pregnant form with beautiful lighting and limited props.

Partners may be included in maternity sessions, and children can be included for an additional $100 fee . See the pricing section of this site for details on packages and pricing.

post-dvdrNewborn Sessions

Newborn sessions are held in the comfort of my studio when babies are best scheduled when baby is between 5 and 14 days of age.

My approach is very simplistic and pure. I avoid busy clothing and props, and instead focus on documenting the exquisite details and bare skin of every baby who comes to visit me in a natural and organic way.

With newborns I avoid excessive and uncomfortable posing and props, and concentrate on keeping babies warm, comfortable and at ease. I have a collection of beautiful blankets, wrap and baskets that I use.

My aim is to document the sheer beauty of their tiny little faces, bodies, lips, eyes, hands, feet, lashes, hair (and many other things) with the use of beautiful light.

A newborn session with me can take anywhere between 2 & 5 hours. The average is about 3.5 hours. Most of this time is spent feeding and settling your baby. I allow ample time for either of these, and have absolutely no desire to end a session until I know we have a wide selection of beautiful images.

The age of a baby is extremely important, and the beautiful curled up and serene sleeping shots simply can’t be achieved after two weeks of age. For this reason, I ask that clients wanting newborn portraits contact me with their due date so I can pencil it into my diary. It’s then important to let me know as soon as their baby arrives so I can schedule their session into my diary. However, it’s not uncommon for parents to decide they want portraits after their baby is born. For this reason, it’s always worthwhile contacting me to see if I have any availabilities.

Siblings and parents are included in newborn sessions for no additional cost. I dedicate approximately 1/3rd of all newborn sessions to sibling, parent & family images. My approach to these portraits is to capture the brand new love and connection between the new parents and their baby/children. Documenting these emotional, imperfect moments is something that makes my heart sing.

Every newborn booked with me receives a complimentary ‘Pure Baby’ portrait sitting (5-15 months of age) and a discount off my popular ‘Pure Baby’ Package.

Pure Baby Sessions

‘Pure Baby’ sessions are studio portrait shoots designed specifically for babies aged 5-15 months of age (or pre-walking). The sessions run for approximately 60-90 minutes.

This is the perfect age to capture a range of gorgeous smiles, expressions, and quirky characteristics. It’s the time when a baby’s personality really starts to emerge. Every session produces a range of expressions – from serious to cheeky, and everything in between.

With these sessions I aim to capture the baby with absolute simplicity. I want the baby to shine, rather than be crowded with props and busy clothing and accessories. I use a range of beautiful blankets, wraps, sheepskins, and simple beanies and clothing.

For an additional fee of $100, I am happy to include a sibling or parents in a few group shots.

Family

A family session with me is all about capturing the love, connection and uniqueness of each family without the interruptions and distractions of everyday life. My style of photography is a mixture of naturally posed and interactive or ‘lifestyle’ portraiture.

I have a variety of locations where I regularly shoot around Bathurst, but I also love visiting clients homes or family farms for sessions.

I am always open to ideas for locations (as well as activities), as I find children are more relaxed and at ease when they are doing something they enjoy. This can be when their personalities really shine!

Sessions usually run for 90-120 minutes, and most are scheduled for late afternoon/evening. All returning clients receive a $100 client loyalty credit towards their next full session with me.
