Welcome to Kirative Images,
I am so excited, that you are considering a professional photography session with me. 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 and surrounding areas. Over the last couple of years, I have dedicated myself to studio newborn and child photography. I am a perfectionist. I love photographing new families, but I dont want to waste my time fighting wind, rain, flies and outdoor distractions. I also really love to spend time getting to know your children. Having a session with Kirative Images is not just about updating your childs photos. It’s about sharing quality time with your family. When you book your session with Kirative images, I can promise you it will be an experince you will never forget.
I am a big advocate for newborn and child safety. I have taken multiple classes 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 their session, I like to capture the real smile they usually 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 playful 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 in the image.
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.
Posed studio sessions may feel awkward at first. When photographing older children, I take a play based approach. We laugh and play silly games, all while capturing the images you are going to love.
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.
Newborn sessions go for approximately 3 hours. Sitter, cake smash, maternity and dream dress 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 the session.
The studio is kept warm, This is to keep baby as relaxed and comfortable as possible, while in light wraps and clothing. I do recommend that you bring a water bottle and snacks if you are booked for a newborn session. The seating area provides a fantastic place for you to watch and enjoy your session, without being far from your child.
