Frequently Asked Questions - Newborn Sessions


Where are your sessions held?

Newborn sessions are held on weekdays at my home in Richmond, Christchurch. Usually for a 9:30am or 10am start.

I recommend to book your session when baby is between 5-12 days old. I am happy to photograph your baby if they are older than that, but we may not get the same sleepy poses. They’ll still be cute though!

What’s the best age for a newborn session?

How long do sessions take?

Sessions range from 2-3 hours. The sessions are baby-led, so it really depends on how sleepy baby is and whether they’re wanting to eat all the time!

Yes! If you have older siblings, we will do their images with baby first as well as family ones if you would like them. After they’re finished, it is best for the older children to be taken home so we can focus on the newborn session without distraction. The room is kept very warm and the sessions range from 2-3 hours so it’s not a lot of fun for a toddler or preschooler.

Can we have family or sibling photos at the newborn session?

Not really! I have all the props needed, but you are welcome to bring a special blanket or item that you would like baby photographed with and I will do my best to incorporate it into the session.

Do I need to bring anything?

Newborn sessions have a $200 session fee which covers my time and talent and does not include any images. Digital image packages are purchased after the session once you’ve seen your full gallery, so you don’t need to decide which package you would like at booking. Send me an email through the Contact page and I will send you my full pricing information.

What does it cost?

Within two weeks of your session, you will receive an online gallery from which you can choose your images for purchase. Packages are purchased online through the gallery so you can decide from home which package you would like.
