Welcome to Kirative Images,
I am so excited that you are considering a professional photography session for your family. My name is Kira and I am the owner and principle photographer at Kirative Images.
I have photographed so many beautiful new babies and children in Canberra. Over the last couple of years, I decided to specialise in newborn and child portrait photography. Having a session with Kirative Images is not just about updating your child photos. it’s about sharing an experience with your family. Capturing those gorgeous tiny toes, big belly laughs, your childs first birthday or building their selfesteem in our new dream sessions. Your images should evoke posative emotions, when you look back on them.
I am a big advocate for newborn and child safety. I have taken multiple courses specialising in newborn studio portraits, posing, and newborn safety. I have a strong attention to detail when it comes to my newborn poses. I like to make sure little fingers and toes are captured perfectly in your images, while keeping babies modesty at all times. I will never put your newborn in any position they do not feel comfortable in. You can relax knowing your newborn’s safety is my number one priority.
Kirative Images uses continous LED light panels during your session. This is no different to beautiul soft natural light, It also means we dont have a big loud flash going off in your childs face.
If there is one thing I have learnt from children, they are great with fake smiles. When you bring your child in for a session, I like to capture the real smile they hide as soon as a camera appears. No one wants that forced smile you get when they yell “Cheese”. Let me capture your child’s natural smile, in a fun and relaxed environment.
As a portrait photographer, I absolutely love creating gorgeous prop setups for all my babies. My style is very organic, I use multiple layers and textures in a single setup that compliment each other naturally.
Curly wool felt layers, brushed wool and fluffy knitted wraps and bonnets are sourced from all over the world. Styled in wooden bowls, buckets and beds give that perfect rustic charm.
I am a posed studio newborn and child photographer. I like to make sure little fingers and toes are captured perfectly in your images. I have studied and worked hard to achieve my signature style and I can’t wait to create an amazing workflow for your session.
Your session will take place in the comfort of the Kirative Images home studio. Parents have told me many times, that they appreciate the relaxed environment. It can be tough to leave the house in the first few days after your baby arrives. A newborn session is approximately 3 hours. Studio mini, cake smash, maternity and dream sessions are usually 1 hour. it’s important to me that my clients are comfortable and make themselves at home during their session. All my clients have access to bathroom and kitchen facilities. I also have a nappy change area stocked with everything your baby may need during their session.
The studio is very warm, with temperatures set to 28 degrees. This is to keep baby as relaxed and comfortable as possible, while naked or in light wraps. I love photographing parent and family poses during the session. I do recommend that you bring a water bottle and comfortable clothing to change into. The seating area provides a fantastic place for you to watch and enjoy your session, without being far from your baby.
This is your time to rest and enjoy the experience. Have you seen a particular pose you would like to try or a prop in my gallery? Be sure to let me know so I can include it for you.
