Maternity, Newborn, Family Photography

South Coast Photographer

Live Photography Australia specialises in Family photography on location and maternity and newborn photography in the studio. Everyone is different and I am guided by you & your children. I am extremely patient and I guarantee results! Sessions last 30- 90 mins depending on how many people I am photographing and their ages.

Maternity & Newborn Info

Maternity & Newborn sessions are usually photographed in the photo studio in Nowra CBD. Offering beautiful soft natural light and signature studio lighting. If you want to be extra pampered then we can arrange a professional blow dry at a local salon for sessions booked Tuesday- Friday. 

I suggest maternity sessions to be around 34 weeks because this is when you are at your best shape. Sessions can be with a partner or other children or just you!

Newborn sessions can be around 10 days old for images of them in your hands, looking all wrinkly and sleepy. I do not over style or pose babies and strongly believe in keeping the session real & authentic.

Want to wait until your baby is starting to resemble you? Filled out a little bit more cuteness and you are more settled with your routine? Then I’d suggest 6-10 weeks old. 

If its smiles you want to capture then make your booking for when your baby will be 4-6 months old. I’ll capture those big beautiful eyes looking up at yours.

Finally if you want to photograph them with a sibling its best to wait until they are sitting up on their own so 6-10 months is ideal. This is such a gorgeous age and you will get many cute expressions & laughs, I guarantee!

Family Photography Info

For family photography sessions where your youngest is 1yr or older I love to shoot on location and have a few special spots I can recommend. I usually choose a beach or a park setting depending on what suits your family. There are no restrictions on family size so it might just be you and your child, a family of 5 or an extended family of 20. 

I take bookings 3-12 weeks in advance. There are options to postpone if someone is sick or the weather isn’t in our favour.

How do we get our photos?

I offer many display options to suit your home with museum standard and archival finishes. I have packages including digital files, art prints, signature wall art. My service and product is guaranteed to last generations.

Payments can be made with credit cards & payment plans are available, allowing you to space out payments and not miss this special time of life. Enquire for more info.

Choosing a family photographer for life

Choosing a family photographer is something you only want to do once. I believe when you find the right person they should be able to document your family over the years. Getting to know your photographer and what to expect from a session makes it more meaningful each time. As an added bonus your artwork and photos remain consistent. Allowing you to add to a photo wall or decorate your home with photos that work well together over the years.
