Although the first few weeks (and months) can be very overwhelming and busy for new parents, please know that newborns are at their sleepiest within the first 10-12 days, so this is definitely the best time to photograph them!
Your session will take place in Melanie’s home on the Sunshine Coast and can last between 3-4 hours. Please know this is a very slow and relaxed session as we like to allow plenty of time for you and your baby to feed, cuddle and relax between posing. As we all know, newborns are unpredictable so please don’t worry if your bub wants to take their time to feed, settle and sleep… We allow for this… we have plenty of time and there’s no rush! (However, Dads consider yourself pre-warned… it may be a long morning for you but don’t worry there will be snacks and plenty of coffee on hand!).
The session will focus almost entirely on your newborn, but we certainly sneak in a few shots with Mum, Dad or siblings too if you wish. If anyone extra is to be in the photos with bub please ensure you wear something neutral or bring along a plain white/black singlet/shirt so we can ensure clothing for everyone is coordinated. I will have outfits and wraps organised for bub so there is no need for you to shop around for clothing.
Melanie is happy to answer any questions you may have so please feel free to make contact at any stage prior to your session. We really look forward to meeting you and your little one soon!
