Below you will find details of the different types of sessions I offer.
If you still have questions, I am more than happy to answer them, no matter what they are.
My Maternity Signature Sessions are a way to capture the love and connection between you and your family before the arrival of your precious baby. Whether you are going from a couple with your first baby, or adding another baby to your growing family, it is a perfect way to celebrate your ‘before baby’. Maternity sessions are best held between 32 - 36 weeks, and are generally held in beautiful outdoor locations in the hour before sunset.
Sessions run for approximately 45 minutes and I strongly encourage the entire family to take part. I have a collection of beautiful gowns that you are welcome to wear during your session, or you are welcome to wear an outfit of your own choosing. If you want to go all out, it is always a great opportunity to get your hair and makeup done (which is also a great excuse to then enjoy a dinner out after the session!).
Following the session, you’ll receive a private online viewing gallery of approximately 30 images to choose your favourites from. These will then form your collection of choice. Combine your maternity and newborn session and save $100 off your newborn session.
Very rarely do you have the opportunity to have studio-quality portraits in the comfort of your hospital room. In Bloom Photography goes beyond the standard photo of your baby wrapped in a hospital blanket (though these are still super cute), and capture gently posed yet natural portraits of your newest arrival. Although you may not be feeling at your most photogenic, I am able to capture your new mum glow in the most complimentary way, and as such, I do encourage you to take part in the photos, as well as your partner and older children.
Sessions are held every Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning from 10am, and take place in your hospital room. Upon arrival, I’ll likely help tidy up your room a bit by placing things in drawers, cupboards and maybe even the bathroom! I’ll then take photos of your baby on their own, then sibling and family portraits. If you have any nice wraps or outfits that you would like your baby photographed in, then feel free to bring them out for the session.
Following the session, you’ll receive a private online viewing gallery of approximately 15 images to choose your favourites from. You’ll then be able to select which size package you would like to purchase. Combine your First Glimpse and a Signature newborn session and save $100 off your newborn session.
Your precious little baby will bring you years of joy, happiness, and love. Capturing their delicate features while they are still a newborn will let you look back on them as they grow, and see how much they have changed. You will also be providing them with a beautiful keepsake of their first few weeks of life. My style is natural, without distracting props and colours. I want you to look back and remember the way you felt when you shared those first moments with your precious child. How your baby smelled when you held them up to you; how it felt when they wrapped their little fingers around yours; the way you looked at them while the rest of the world (and my camera) melted away when they were in your arms. The images I capture of your baby will be earthy, real and natural. They will be gently posed into natural looking poses to show off their sweet little faces and features.
Newborn sessions are held in my purpose-built home studio on St Huberts Island, Central Coast, and are best held between days 6 & 21 of your baby's life (if you have missed this window however, I won't turn you away - beautiful newborn images will be able to be captured up to 6 - 8 weeks old).
Petite sessions are perfect for those of you who only want a few beautiful images of their baby captured. I may still include your hands in the photos, but these sessions are all about baby.
Signature sessions are recommended if you would like to have sibling and family portraits as well as a wider variety of setups for your newborn.
Following your session, you’ll receive a gallery of approximately 30 images to choose your favourites from. You’ll then be able to choose which collection you would like and which products you would like to add on so that you can fill your walls with beautiful images of your newborn and family.
