A pregnancy journey, or newborn moments are precious. Photographs help you to cherish those stories.
Celebrate your pregnancy journey with portraits that tell the story of the how you feel about your baby’s arrival.
Feel joy from images that help you remember those precious first moments and the fleeting newborn stage, where you were all falling in love with each other.
This story is just the cherished beginning.
Your newborn story will be based on a lifestyle, documentary approach. The images will be natural, likely to be in your own home doing what you do every day. It could be just one short photographic session, an all day session or it could be several short sessions regularly over the first year.
Take a few minutes to meet some of our littlest friends below, and if you see something that makes you smile from the inside out, then say hello above…
How will you go about telling our story?
We will meet or chat on the phone so I can get to know you. I want to know more about you so that I can ‘shine’ that story in the pregnancy or newborn photographs we capture for you.
I’m pregnant …..When do I need to book?
As soon as you can using your due date as a guide.
You’ll book in for your pregnancy photographic session between 33-36 weeks.
Newborn photos are best done around 7-10 days when baby is still sleepy, or around 3 – 6 months baby will be more awake with just a dash of personality peeking through.
What do I need to wear?
Plain dark colours are best. We can discuss this with you after your booking is confirmed.
How long will the maternity or newborn photographic session last?
Allow around 30-60 mins for a Pregnancy photography experience.
Allow around 2 – 4 hours for a Newborn photography experience.
Who can join in?
We love to include your immediate family members for your pregnancy and newborn photos. Older siblings are very welcome!
Where will we be for the photos?
Capturing the story of your baby in your home really rocks my boat and its the most popular choice by our clients too!
How can I prepare?
When we are coming to you…. please do not do the housework! We aren’t even looking! You will do better to have spent time the day of the shoot quietly relaxing with your baby.
If you have a special outfit or significant family treasure to include please mention it.
What happens if baby is unsettled?
Most newborn babies will have one to two unsettled times during their shoot. We will stop to settle, feed, change nappies as required. There is no rush. Your baby calls the shots on the day!
How soon can I see my photos?
We know you are excited! A sneak peek of a few images is available within 48 hours of your shoot.
Your full gallery is ready to view around 2-3 weeks later. You will select your favourites for your print package and around 4-6 weeks (sometimes sooner) your photos will arrive in your home.
How much do you charge?
Mostly you can expect to invest from $600 to $1500 on your baby lifestyle photography package. (please contact us for our Baby Package Investment Guide)
All packages include a digital images.
Do you do packages with albums or prints?
Totally and ABSOLUTELY! It’s our favourite thing to do! We offer you the highest quality print products available.
Where can I print my photographs?
We like to arrange that for you. I won’t print my family photos anywhere other than a professional lab! Professional printing labs are now hard to find. I have an excellent relationship with two Brisbane professional printing businesses and can offer reasonable pricing for professional prints that remind you of the ol’ days. There is nothing in the retail sector that gets close. We can show you samples!
Can I purchase a gift voucher for a friend?
For sure! BTW…..You are so lovely to want to give a photography gift voucher to a friend who is having a baby! Contact us with the amount your wish your gift voucher to be and we’ll send it to you or directly to your friend.
Can I have files on CD or USB?
It’s kinda a long story! Ask yourself…..Do you really want to be investing in professional portraits of the story of your baby’s arrival and first few weeks or year, delivered in a non-stable ageing technological format!! Ask us about our ‘Stand the Test of Time’ digital collections! Our Wild Whimsy friends love them.
