Choosing a maternity & newborn photographer for life
Choosing a family photographer is something you only want to do once. We believe when you find the right photographer they should be able to document your family over the years. Getting to know the photographer and what to expect from a session makes it more meaningful each time you update your photos. As an added bonus your artwork and photos remain consistent on your wall. Allowing you to add to a photo wall or decorate your home with photos that work well together over the years. Our clients continue to update their family photos with us, even when they have moved further away to Canberra or Sydney.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do you have a studio?
Yes. The studio is a private space with natural window light and professional studio lighting setup in Rodway Arcade, just off Junction Street in the Nowra CBD.
How soon should we book our Maternity & Newborn shoots?
Bookings are made 1 week – 6 months in advance so the sooner you book the better. As soon as you have an idea of timing then a date can be penciled in.
Do you travel?
Yes, travel within 100km from the studio in Nowra, NSW Australia is included. Usually Bulli-Milton. Outside of this area travel fees are applied.
Can we do our photo session on a weekend?
Absolutely! Saturday’s and select Sundays are available.
Can we include our other children in the sessions?
Yes we’d love them to be included.
Do you have a Working With Children Permit and whooping cough vaccination?
Yes my assistants and I have WWCC permits to work safely with your children. We are also up to date with all the necessary vaccines to work with newborns.
What time should we have our photo shoot?
For Maternity, the afternoon golden hour is the best for location sessions. Otherwise during the day in the studio is beautiful light.
For Newborns, it depends more on when suits you. After a feed is usually a good time to start as they will be milk drunk and we can start with sleepy shots.
What should we wear to our maternity & newborn sessions?
You do not need to come matching. Neutral colours are better than strong patterns like stripes. Textures look really good so wear fabrics like wool, lace, silk, linen. I suggest placing all the clothes together to see if they work as a collection. Make sure you can move freely, bend, sit without needing to adjust the clothing.
For maternity sessions bring at least 2 outfits, bring nice lingerie, long skirts, fitted dresses, jackets or vests.
For newborn sessions your baby will be mostly nude or in a nappy or a wrap.
How long until our photos are ready?
You will receive a sneak peek a few days after the photo shoot for you to share on social media. Then the full collection is ready for you to view & order the following week. Once you have made your order, photos take 3-6 weeks depending on what you have ordered.
Do you sell digital files?
Yes digital file collections are available and many other options for prints, frames, canvas etc.
Do you offer professional framing?
Yes if you would like it all done for you and simply collect your framed images ready to hang this can be organised. There are many framing options to choose from to suit your home. Professional framing is guaranteed to make sure your prints last many generations.
Do you offer AfterPay?
Yes! I want my photography to be accessible to all families regardless of their current financial situation so I offer a few payment plan options. Now accepting AfterPay which allows you to split your order into 4 fortnightly payments. Also offering up to 6 month payment plans. Just ask for more info.
