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 feel so privlidged, to have photographed so many beautiful new babies in Canberra. Over the last couple of years, I have built my buisness around child and newborn safety. I decided to specialise in newborns, to lift the standard of newborn photography in Canberra. I want to show my clients and new parents the importance of hiring a professional.
I am a big advocate for newborn safety. I have taken multiple courses specialising in newborn studio portraits, posing, and newborn safety. I have 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. You can relax knowing your newborn’s safety is my number one priority.
Did you know that flash photography can cause an unnecessary startle reflex in newborn babies? At Kirative images, I only use continuous light sources in all my newborn sessions.
Besides cuddling brand new babies during my working hours, I have a beautiful blended family with 7 children. Love and patience are my strong suits.
If there is one thing I have learnt from children, they are great with fake smiles. When you bring your child for a photo session, I like to capture the real smile they desperatly try to hide as soon as a camera appears. No one wants the forced smile you get when they yell “Cheese”. Let me capture your child’s natural smile, in a fun and relaxed environment.
As a newborn photographer I absolutly love creating gorgeous prop setups for all my babies. My style is very organic, I use multiple layers and textures in a single prop that compliment eachother.
Natural curly felt wools, layers, brushed wool and fluffy knitted wraps are sourced from all over the world. Styled in wooden bowls, buckets and beds for that perfect rustic charm.
I am a posed studio newborn photographer. I like to make sure little fingers and toes are perfect in your images. I have studied and worked hard to acheive my signature style and I can’t wait to create an amazing workflow for your newborn session.
Your newborn 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 3hrs; 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 new baby may need during their session.
The studio is very warm, with tempratures 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.
