Those first few weeks at home, adjusting to your new way of life are so, so precious.
Knowing this, I believe an in home newborn session is one of the best ways to document your new baby. There's no need to stress about being anywhere on time. Simply relax, spend the morning getting ready in your own environment, with plenty of wardrobe options available if you're dealing with any poonami's that day.
This also means I'll be capturing your new addition to the family in a way that reflects you all as you would naturally be... snuggling, laughing with maybe a little bit of chaos in there for good measure (hello toddlers 🤪). Documenting your space as it is.
But i'll also give you simple cues and guidance where needed, and once we have baby asleep on my posing beanbag - We'll get a beautifully 'naturally' posed image of your newest little one too. Bringing you the best of what you would hope to get from an in studio session, in the comfort of your home.
All in home portraits are done around 9:30/10am.
Packages start from $550.

When is the best time to book in?
Due to the nature of working with babies and their unpredictable arrival times, I limit the amount of bookings I take on each month to ensure flexibility in my schedule. This means you're best to book in as soon as possible to ensure you don't miss out. We'll book you in using your estimated due date and we'll finalise the date of the session once your baby has arrived.
WHEN IS the best time to do a newborn session?
The first few weeks are best - if possible. As baby is usually a little more sleepy and easier to settle. And their little faces literally change almost over night. So those fresh newborn details are always so precious. However - sometimes this isn't possible. And that's okay, because EVERY stage of your babies journey is worth documenting. They will always be growing, so you will always look back and be glad you captured this time no matter what age your baby is.
how long does the session take?
I don't set a specific time frame on my sessions, as all babies and families are unique. But you can expect the session to last anywhere from 1.5 to 3 hours. It all depends on how your baby is feeding that day and how settled they are. I'll always allow for the maximum amount of time in my calendar so you never have to stress.
I don't have the prettiest home, is there anywhere else we can go?
You're more than welcome to use a family or friends home if they are happy to host you and you prefer the space. However, you don't need a pretty home. I promise you that. This is your babies first home, and that in itself makes your space worth documenting. And I seriously just need some good natural light. Just make sure to follow my tips on how to prepare your space and leave the rest in my hands. I'll also be sharing some content about this on my Instagram, so make sure to head over there to see more.
Do you use props?
While i'm more than happy to include some special taonga/blankets in some of your images, there wont be any props involved as I like to keep things natural.
