Maternity sessions are best held between 34 - 36 weeks, when you have a belly but aren't too uncomfortable or likely to have bub too early. Settings can vary from studio to beach, cliffs, rockery, bushes, long grass etc. and your input is greatly welcomed in choosing a location you feel comfortable with. Siblings and partners are encouraged to participate in these beautiful and natural portraits. I have a variety of maternity gowns that you are welcome to wear during your session, or you can wear your own outfit. CLICK HERE to view dress options.
First Glimpse sessions are obligation-free portrait sessions are held in the comfort of your room at Gosford Private Hospital, and take around 45 minutes. They are a relaxing and fun experience.
Following the session you will receive an online gallery of 15+ images from which you can choose your favourite six photos to fill a beautiful linen album. You will also receive the digital files of your chosen images. The cost of the First Glimpse package is $365. Additional images can also be purchased and pricing is all detailed in the flyer that will be provided to you during your stay.
Newborn portraits are best held up to 3 weeks old while your baby is still super sleepy and able to be positioned comfortably. Older newborns are also welcome (up to 8 weeks old), and whilst newborn poses can still be attempted, babies are more likely to be wrapped and awake during their sessions. Sessions are held in my studio on St Huberts Island, and take up to 3 hours, depending on how settled your baby is on the day. Sibling and family portraits are included in sessions at no additional charge. One hour mini sessions are also available to suit budgets or if you are only after a few photos.
