Below you’ll find a description of each of the photographic sessions my studio offers.
Of course, this is flexible, I love to create images with my clients input and consultation. A team effort to create something amazing for your family. If you have any questions at all, just ask.
My pregnancy sessions are a simple celebration of this precious time in your lives. The whole family is more than welcome to attend.
I emphasise the unspoken connection between you and your unborn babe. Celebrating the beautiful form of your rolling tummy.
These sessions are best held between 34-38 weeks.
The pregnancy sessions include a private online viewing gallery of approximately 30 – 40 images to choose your favourite 20 for collation into a beautiful brag book . The brag book alone is valued at $295. When purchasing a digital collection with your newborn session, digital files from your pregnancy session are included as well.
I have a beautiful collection of maternity wear for my mums to borrow and these compliment any clothing you’d like to bring with you.
Many of my mums enjoy having hair and make up done prior to the session – there is the amazing Eliza at The Vine Hair next door to the studio available for hair appointments (please book early) and I’m happy to offer suggestions for makeup artists too.
Pregnancy sessions are charged at $300 and include a brag book valued at $295, combine your pregnancy and newborn session and save.
My newborn sessions are held at my studio, an ideal place to relax and enjoy your new little person, but can be booked as a location session outdoor or in your home.
Newborns are best photographed under 2 weeks of age and as such it is really important that you book as early as possible, before your baby is born. Your session date is based on your estimated due date and adjusted once your little one arrives.
Booking early is really really important. My diary fills very quickly. I’ve had clients book the day they found out they were pregnant – it’s never too early!
Newborn sessions often take around 1.5 – 2.5 hours. There is always plenty of opportunities for feeding and settling.
Siblings are welcome and all immediate family are involved at no extra charge. As my style and philosophy is all about connection and love, it’s really important that the whole family is involved.
Bring along sentimental items such as wraps etc, but don’t worry too much about what baby will wear as the studio has all the wraps and blankets needed to create the images you see in my portfolio.
I have a lovely selection of clothing available for your mum’s to wear (and some simple t-shirts etc for dads too if needed) so please get in touch and let me know if you’d like to borrow anything from the studio wardrobe. You can find a pdf of all the clothing available here.
My newborn sessions are $285 and include the session itself, full editing of your images and presentation of your final images at your Image Selection Session as well as a matted 8×10″ art print valued at $110. Check out the ‘step by step’ guide for further information, and you can purchase your session over here.
The next best age to photograph your little one after the newborn stage is around the 6-9 month mark, when they are sitting up but not yet crawling away.
This milestone varies greatly from baby to baby.
Photographed in studio, these sessions usually last around 30 minutes to 1 hour, and are guided entirely by your babe and they are wanting to do at the time.
A good sleep and a full tummy are usually all they need to have a great session at this age.
Like all my sessions, the whole family is included at no extra charge. These sessions are charged at $285 and include the session itself, full editing of your images and presentation of your final images at your Image Selection Session as well as a matted 8×10″ art print valued at $110. Check out the ‘step by step’ guide for further information, you can purchase your session over here.
let them eat cake
My cake sessions are a crazy, fun and messy session to celebrate baby’s first birthday.
It is beautiful to watch their little personalities shine when confronted with a birthday cake all of their own.
These sessions take approximately 1 hour and include a small number of family photographs at the beginning and a ‘wash up’ session at the end.
Best between 10-12 months, includes a beautiful professionally baked and decorated cake, helium balloons, bubbles and heaps of fun.
Can also be held on their actual birthday as a wonderful celebration.
Of course, not all of my clients want to get messy, and this is totally fine. First birthday sessions are beautiful just on their own, surrounded by mum and dad and siblings and letting their interests shine through – bring some favourite toys and play. It’s all about them today – first birthday sessions without the mess are charged at our ‘baby’ session rate.
Let them eat cake sessions are charged at $285 and include the cake, balloons, bubbles for the session, full editing of your images and presentation of your final images at your Image Selection Session. Check out the ‘step by step’ guide for further information, you can purchase your session over here.
Family sessions are held either in studio for smaller families of those with very young kiddos or at one of my fave forrest and field locations. Studio sessions give more flexibility in terms of times of day and weather (because the light is always amazing) but outdoor sessions provide beautiful back drops especially as the weather changes from season to season.
I adore the Adelaide Hills all year round, the gorgeous adventures at Blackwood Forest and Urrbrae House for a close option with beautiful trees and architecture – are just a few suggestions.
The world is your oyster and I welcome your input and ideas to create something truly unique to your family.
I open a number of sessions during the school holidays for my school age families, so just let me know if this would work best for your family.
These sessions are charged at $285 for studio and $310 for location sessions. This includes the session itself, travel (if applicable), full editing of your images and presentation of your final images at your Image Selection Session as well as a matted 8×10″ art print valued at $110.
