Our Baby sessions are for any little human over the age of about 6 weeks, through to around 18 months.
These sessions are listed separately to our newborn sessions, as they tend to not need quite so much time, as babe has generally found a bit of a routine, and is a little quicker to settle and feed when necessary.
Depending on the age of your little one, we will achieve different types of images. At around 3 months baby will be giving lots of wonderful eye contact and maybe the odd smile! At around 6-10 months they’ll be sitting up, smiling, maybe even crawling and certainly confident with their tummy time. At 12 months, we often celebrate with one of our Cake Sessions – where they get super messy and have fun with their very first birthday cake.
Each milestone is fabulous, and the changes that occur over the first 12 months are mind-blowing.
If I’ve missed the ‘newborn’ stage, what’s the next best?
Honestly? NOW! They grow so very fast and each week brings new things!
BUT if we had to choose, 8-10 months is divine – they are generally sitting up unaided, they are smiling, laughing, sometimes crawling, their little chubby thighs are divine, and we generally can achieve lots of variety during the session.
We often do our Cake Sessions at around 11-12 months which are SO much fun and a fabulous way to celebrate getting through the first year of parenthood!
How early should I book?
The studio is generally booked 2-3 weeks in advance, but the earlier the better, especially if we need to work around parental work commitments.
Can my older kiddos attend? What about my partner? Fur Baby?
Yes, yes and yes!
We photograph everything and anything that constitutes ‘family’ – welcoming a new human into your clan is important for everyone, so everyone is welcome, including the fur baby.
What do we wear?
We have a gorgeous selection of dresses in our studio wardrobe and you are welcome to choose from anything in our range. Our studio wardrobe works best when we ‘mix and match’ from things at home, or you’re welcome to bring along anything you’d like from home.
Plain and simple works best, anything that you feel fabulous in. For partners, anything co-ordinating with you is perfect – keep it simple and steer clear of any large checks, spots, stripes or logos. If in doubt, just get in touch and we can help co-ordinate the whole family if you need.
Should I have my hair and make up done?
This is completely up to you, however we do find that mumma’s who invest a little bit in themselves, feel just that little bit more fabulous in front of the camera. And how you feel is what it’s all about at the end of the day!
So if it’s a good excuse to find 45 minutes to escape to be pampered, then go for it!
Where are these sessions held?
The vast majority of our baby sessions are held at our gorgeous, light filled studio in Edwardstown. Our studio is fully equiped with everything needed for your session – change table, wraps, blankets, burp cloths and COFFEE.
However, we are more than happy to photograph your little family at your home (see our Family Home Sessions) or our Forest & Field location Blackwood, or our Beach location at Port Willunga Beach.
Even our Cake Sessions can be done anywhere too – although they are a little more practical when done in the studio or our Forest & Field location
How much are baby sessions?
All our sessions are $285.
This covers your photographer’s time and talent capturing your gorgeous images, and an in studio Design and Ordering Appointment. Your session also includes one 8×10″ matted art print of your choice. (the session fee does not include digital files, these are available to purchase)
You can then choose to order additional prints and products, including digital files, from our Studio Catalogue. We go through this in detail at your Design and Ordering Appointment, however to give you a rough idea, most of our families spend around $2000.
There is no minimum spend, and no obligation to purchase. However, you WILL LOVE your images, so please make sure you discuss our pricing with your partner and all decision makers prior to booking.
How do I book?
You can jump on the studio’s calendar linked below, choose from Studio Session – Baby, Forest & Field, Family Home and even the Beach.
