Frequently asked questions
When should we take newborn photos?
We recommend that you take your newborn photos between 5-10 days. There are a couple reasons behind scheduling your photo session at this time with the first being that babies are easiest to work with within the first 2 weeks of being born. It is during this period, babies are sleeping the majority of the day which makes it very easy to get them into poses.
What time of day is best?
Babies are usually the sleepiest in the morning so we aim to start the session between 9-12.
What if my baby is older than 10 days?
We can still schedule a session, however, your baby may be more alert.
How long are newborn photography sessions?
Newborn photography sessions are scheduled for 1 - 2 hours. We typically allow for a range in time as we work on the baby’s schedule. A newborn session progresses as the baby’s temperament, health, and mood allows. We follow their cues, so they remain as comfortable as possible. If baby needs to be comforted, fed, or changed we will stop for as long as necessary. Therefore, each session may vary.
Are props included? If so, what kind of props are there?
Please feel free to provide your own props if you require. I do not provide props as I intend to capture the connection between the new born and Mom, Dad and siblings (if any). Props deter from raw emotion.
Where will the session be held?
In the comfort of your own home.
What do I do to help prepare my baby for the Newborn Photography Session?
There are a few things that parents should do before the start of a baby photography session. First, have the newborn cleaned with a sponge bath prior to the shoot. This helps in removing any dry and loose skin the baby may have. Secondly, try to keep the baby awake and unfed 1-2 hours prior to the shoot. We will ask you to feed and change baby once we arrive. If the parents or siblings would like to be in the photos please come ready or have outfits available to change into. If the baby is nursing you may want to eat a bland diet 1-2 days prior to the shoot as certain foods the mother eats can cause the baby to become gassy and fussy. Please check with your doctor first. If the baby is formula fed you may want to have extra bottles on hand as baby may become hungry and need to be fed during the session.
Will we be able to do all of the poses that I see on Pinterest?
Not every baby will do every pose. It depends on their age, mood, health, etc.
What if I have more questions?
We'll be glad to help. Feel free to contact us as: firstname.lastname@example.org.
How long will it take to get the images?
After the photography session, we invite you back to view and choose your images. Once you have chosen your images you will receive your images in 7-10 business days.
Will any retouching be included to remove rashes, birthmarks, baby acne, etc.?
All retouching is included in the price of your package. Please be sure to let us know if there are specific things you want to be retouched so that we can make note of that.
Do you travel outside of the Wide Bay area / Queensland?
Absolutely. Please contact us for more information.
What type of Newborn Photographer are you?
I am a baby-led photographer. Therefore I will always work around how your baby is feeling at a particular time. If your baby is hungry, then he or she should be fed. If your baby is uncomfortable with a particular pose, then we will adjust as necessary etc.
