When Should I Book My Newborn Session?

Newborn sessions are best done when baby is between 5-23 days old. This is the best time to capture those beautiful newborn poses. Your baby is still very sleepy and happy to be curled up into those beautiful curled poses you see in my gallery. Newborns like to cluster feed, to help build up a healthy milk supply. I like to schedule your newborn session after day 5. This allows breastfeeding mothers plenty of time to develop a feeding routine and settle baby back at home.
 
Newborn sessions are usually 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 2-3 months in advance to avoid disappointment. Your session fee of $150 is due at time of booking.

What Does My Session Fee Cover?

No-one can predict the exact day your baby is going to be born, but you can secure your newborn session with Kirative Images and be guaranteed a spot when your baby decides to arrive.
 
Your session fee of $150 covers your experienced newborn photographer during your 2-3 hour personalised 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 family and parent images as well as 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 30+ 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 me more time to work with your baby

Family/Parent images are taken sitting down, therefor you can wear comfortable shoes. I recommend white/grey shirts for the family portraits. Siblings are best photographed in ivory, white or cream dresses. cream/beige chinos for boys with grey, ivory or white shirts. (No shoes required for siblings) Most sibling dress sizes I have available at the studio and I have size 1-3 in white linen shirts for boys.

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.
