The Newborn

Experience

xx

For many, your Perth newborn photography session is the first time you leave the house as a new family. I would be honoured to be your photographer capturing this precious start to life. Your whole experience means everything to me when you book in for newborn photography. The sleepless nights can make this time a blur, so I want to help you preserve the endless love you have for your baby. I want your time with me to be filled with smiles and laughter and that you can truly relax. It is not lost on me that you are 100% trusting me with the most precious thing in your life. I promise to be gentle and patient, always putting your baby's needs first. I can also assure you that I am fully vaccinated as are all my children. Being a mother of four myself these sessions hold such a special place in my heart.

This experience is so important for personal reasons. You will be receiving treasured images of your baby that you can look back on forever. Hiring a photographer who has the same style of photography as you should be one of the first deciding factors. But the person behind the camera matters as well. I am always fun when dealing with any siblings involved but I also have a very caring attitude toward your newborn.


Naturally, the quality of the finished product is of utmost importance when you hire me as your Perth newborn photographer. The photographs captured should take you back to the first weeks with your baby, even if it was a blur. When you receive your online gallery, I want you to feel like you are reliving every tiny detail of your baby again. And since photographs are forever - every time you look at them on the walls in your house, in your albums, and everywhere else that they might be, you will remember this special moment in your life when you became a parent.

Session Details

The nitty gritty

Peach fuzz, peeling skin and that ever sweet newborn smell … argh!!! You can understand why I am in love with Perth Newborn Photography.

Newborn sessions are ideally held between the ages of 4-14 days at my Carine home studio. (That excludes fresh 48 and in home lifestyle sessions of course). Rest assured, I always take the utmost care with newborns. I will never rush a session and take as much time as we need. I allow your baby to be my guide. A full newborn session can therefore take hours to complete. My aim is to have you feeling completely relaxed and enjoying every moment of your session without feeling rushed or overwhelmed.

To ensure we don’t miss a moment I use a combination of posed and lifestyle photography letting your baby take the lead. Poses are womb like and moments are real. I cannot wait to capture these moments for you.

What to Expect from a Fresh 48 Newborn Session

A fresh 48 session is for families who want the first few hours of their newborns life captured (without having the entire labour or birth documented.) Like the name suggests, these sessions are held within the first 24 – 48 hours of your baby’s life. The session is candid and perfect for remembering your baby’s first day forever. Your baby is changing so fast – hour to hour, day to day. Fresh 48 sessions documents all these firsts. Shots include your little one’s first yawns and cute little newborn feet and fingers. Dad’s first nappy change, mum breastfeeding, the first bath, meeting siblings and family members – all the goodness. I can capture you going home from hospital or simply gazing at each other!

What to Expect from Posed Perth Newborn Photography Sessions

I adore brand new babies – their smell, fuzzy hair, soft skin, teeny tiny fingers and toes. So naturally I love Perth newborn photography! This beautiful stage is fleeting and an important time to capture. My posed newborn sessions involve patiently waiting for baby to fall asleep. We then gently pose them on a soft beanbag to look like a little sleeping doll. I also work with some worn, rustic props to create timeless imagery. Typically I include a mixture of lifestyle and womb like posing to make sure that no details are missed. All full sessions include parent shots, sibling shots if there are any and of course baby portraiture.

These sweet images will melt hearts for years to come but they are not easy to get. A posed session may take from 2 up to 4 hours (entirely depending on your baby). To keep your baby happy we must shoot in a heated room – around 28 degrees! Your baby has been living in a 37 degree womb so they actually find warmth very comforting at this young age. The session length allows plenty of time for feeds, settling, nappy changes and importantly lots of comforting hugs.

I have found the first two weeks after birth to be the best time for these photos. After this your little one starts to wake up and explore the world around them. It becomes a little more difficult to get them into that beautiful relaxed sleepy state. However, it is never too late to capture your little one – you just need to adjust expectations accordingly to the age of the baby. Older babies will not fold into womb like poses. So pictures of older babies involve more awake, wrapped and parent holding images.

What to Expect from Perth Lifestyle Newborn Sessions

For those with a fussy baby or for couples wanting more candid family images, a lifestyle session might just be the perfect thing. Lifestyle sessions are photoshoots that capture your new bundle of joy in natural poses and in a natural setting. Popular choices for lifestyle images include baby held in daddy’s arms. Mum, dad and baby together. Photos with the family pet and/or siblings and larger group shots. My lifestyle images are taken with natural light, generally in a number of rooms around your house with lots of light flooding in through the windows.

A lifestyle session is casual, relaxed and quick – taking no more than 2 hours. I truly love these sessions as much as the posed newborn sessions. Why do they hold a special place in my heart? Because your home is where you create and collect memories that will last a lifetime. It is a place that holds your families real life chaos, milestones and love. So why not have newborn memories documented where it means the most! I focus heavily on the connection between subjects and all the details that make this time and your little one so precious.

I know we live in a digital era and everyone wants to keep their digital files. I believe that you should be able to print and share your images as many times as you'd like, and that's why every session includes your choice of digital files with a print release included in the photography pricing.

 

But please remember to print your photos. Why go to all the effort of getting professional photos taken to then forget about them as they are only on a USB that you have misplaced? I have found more and more clients asking me about products over the years and so I have decided to offer some of the most exquisite items I could find from professional labs all over Australia.

 

So now you receive the digital files you are after and you can also decide to add on which ever products you love!
