When Should I Book My Newborn Session?

You need to book your newborn session in your second trimester. Newborn sessions are best done when baby is between 5-23 days old. This is the perfect time to capture those beautiful posed newborn images seen in my gallery. Newborns like to cluster feed, to help build up a healthy milk supply. I like to schedule your newborn session for around 10-14 days after your due date. This allows breastfeeding mothers plenty of time to develop a feeding routine and settle baby back at home.
Newborn sessions are booked weekdays at 10:00am. Due to the custom nature of newborn sessions and editing schedule. I have a limited number of available sessions each month, to guarantee my turnaround on all edited images stays within 2 weeks. It is best to secure your newborn session 3 months in advance to avoid disappointment.
Your session fee of $150 is due at time of booking.

What Does My Session Fee Cover?

Your session fee of $150 covers your experienced newborn photographer during your 2-3 hour studio session. This includes the use of all natural curly felts, outfits, tiebacks, bonnets, and custom made props designed exclusively for Kirative Images.
Your session fee also covers your personalised session plan over the phone. This is the time to discuss, colours, props, heirloom items or special images you would like included in your session. It is also a great time to discuss parent and sibling images, if you have older children.
Once you have had your session, you will be provided a private online gallery to view your images. You can expect to view a minimum 40+ images from your session. Turnaround time is usually 2 weeks. Your gallery is what you will view, to select your images and purchase your newborn package.

How Should I Prepare?

Your newborn session will be held in my home studio in Bonner. It is temperature controlled to keep your newborn as comfortable as possible, while being photographed in light layers.

Keep your routine as normal as possible. Please do not use sudocream, talcum powder or oily moisturiser on your babies skin the day of your session. Kirative Images will supply Huggies baby wipes, nappies, clean change table for use at your session. You will not need your pram or baby sling so please leave them in your car.

If you have the ability to express some milk into a bottle, or bring a formula bottle with you on the day. This can speed up feeding and allow more time to work with your baby. If you are exclusively breastfeeding you can expect to feed baby 1-2 times during your session.

Parent/Sibling images are taken mostly sitting down, therefor you can wear comfortable shoes. I recommend white/grey or neutral colour shirts for the family portraits. Siblings are best photographed in ivory, white or cream dresses for girls. Cream/beige chinos for boys with light denim, ivory or neutral shirts. (No shoes required for sibling portraits) To make your session as easy as possible. Most sibling outfits are available to use at the studio. Please ask about size options. 

Hair and makeup is not included in your session. I recommend that you keep your makeup light, for a beautiful and natural feel. Parents hands will be photographed up close, please avoid bright coloured nail polish.
