"Sometimes you may never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory" - Dr Suess
Newborn sessions are photographed in the morning hours in my Newlands, PTA, studio typically before baby is 2 weeks old. Here I have complete access to my props, backdrops and equipment as well as control over the light and the climate. This allows me to guarantee that the session will be able to go on as planned, without any outside factors to prevent me from shooting the session.
I provide full wardrobe & props for the newborn. I will capture posed images of your little one and go through my workflow. If you have any special images you would like me to capture or you have a special theme you would like me to include, please be sure to let me know prior to your session so I can include it. The session usually takes up to a maximum of four hours to complete, or it may be done is two hours as it is completely led by baby. You will not be rushed as the safety of your little one is my first priority.
I limit the number of photo sessions I book each week to ensure I am able to give each family my undivided attention throughout their experience with my studio. Newborn sessions, in particular, are best booked in advance, most families secure their newborn session while they are still in their second trimester. Most fathers can take advantage of paternity leave.
