CAPTURING THE WHOLE STORY
I adore photographing Newborns, but I also love capturing the whole story. When you book in for a Newborn Session, you have the option of two stunning Add-Ons
Why not capture the whole story. My maternity add-ons are a short 1/2 hour mini session designed to capture this beautiful fleeting moment of your life. Spoil yourself and do this just for you, or include the whole family in your journey to mother-hood.
I think all of us that are Mums, have experienced the in-hostital newborn photography shooters. It is one of those photos that you just kinda have to have, a bit like the annual school photos. It doesn’t seem to matter about the composition or quality, you just have to have them. What if you could have just a little more. What if you could have someone capture that amazing connection that happens in hospital, that first bath, the raw beauty of this moment, within that first 48 hours after birth. YES PLEASE.
“What if I am not up to a photo-session within 48 hours after my baby is born”?
The idea of this session is to capture this beautiful fleeting moment in hospital. The time where you just get to relax and cuddle your new baby. If the first two days is too soon, I completely understand that. If you have had a caesarian section, the first two days are not fun. You may like to book in day number 3 or even number 4, when the dust settles and you feel more energetic, and can get out of bed.
Still need convincing? This family booked in for both Add-Ons, along with their Newborn Session.
Can I book these sessions on their own, not as Add-Ons to your Newborn Sessions? You can, but they will be charged out as Standard Family Sessions.
When is the best time to book in for my maternity session? Roughly around 33-35 weeks. I am looking for that time when you are glowing, but not too uncomfortable yet.
Can my other children be involved? These are my absolute favourite types of maternity sessions?
Where do you shoot maternity sessions? Your choice. We can either have a session at your home, or we can find a beautiful location in and around town, in a Park, down by the rivers or lakes, or an open paddock.
How long are Maternity Sessions? Around 30 minutes long.
How do I book in a time slot for my Fresh 48 Session? Once you have confirmed your booking, please let me know your due date, and what hospital you are due to give birth in? Once you have given birth, we can confirm a date and time suitable to all.
What happens if I have a caesarean section and I am simply not up to photos within the first 48 hours? No problem, just let me know when your are feeling better.
What makes Fresh 48 so special? There are very few (if any) things more raw, important and emotional in life than having a baby. For a lot of mums and parents, the first couple of hours and days after delivery can be a blur because of all the changes, actual labour and post delivery. I want you to REMEMBER how beautiful the two of you looked as brand new parents. I want you to REMEMBER how it felt to look at your brand new baby and to detail how fresh and new they looked just coming into the world. There’s nothing like it.
Do you need permission from the hospital? No, I am coming in as an invited guest so all good there. I like to respect the visiting hours of the hospital, so let me know these when we confirm our booking.
I plan to have a home birth, can I still have a Fresh 48 add-on? Yes. I will come to your home, and we can capture those first moments at home.
How long are these sessions? Roughly around 30 minutes.
Do you do actual time Birth Photography? No. Birth photography is amazing, but currently my schedule does not allow for me to accept actual time birth sessions.
What should we wear? Great question. Take a look HERE for my thoughts. For your Fresh 48 session, most of my clients are happy to stay in their PJs. It’s a personal thing, but feel free to get dressed if you would feel more comfortable this way.
