Booking Your Newborn Photo Shoot on the Lower North Shore
Don’t wait until your new little bundle has arrived in this world to book your newborn photographs. Those sweet little peaceful, curly poses you see are only able to be captured in the first two weeks after birth. Newborn photographs are a beautiful way to remember those early days and how sweet and contented your little one was.
Here are FAQ to help you understand how a newborn photography session will work:
When is the best time for my newborn photo session?
We like to photograph newborns around 6-12 days old but will book in later if necessary. Generally we advise booking in the second trimester of your pregnancy. Of course, if this is your first baby you may not have even considered the need for photographs so early. So if you have just left hospital and realised that you want to freeze these moments forever, contact us and we will try and fit you in, even if it is after that precious 2 week period.
How long is a session?
Our sessions usually take 1-2hrs for just the baby, if family and more specifically siblings are being photographed then we need an additional hour particularly if you have a toddler in tow. It might seem longer than you would have expected but we like to make sure baby is comfortable and comforted at all times, we stop for feeds and cuddles as necessary and some feeds can take a fair bit of time.
During the session you can relax, we have a comfy couch and snack and drinks. Scroll through your phone, answer emails, sleep or watch the session, we intend to make it enjoyable and relaxing for you all. We are close to amenities in North Sydney and Crows Nest such as cafes and parks so one parent can take a break with younger children if required.
Where is the studio?
We have a two-room studio in Waverton (on Sydney's Lower North Shore close to North Sydney) with easy and safe onsite parking. The studio contains a full range of items specifically designed for newborns as well as all the required lighting and backdrops.
How does scheduling work given I only have a ‘due date’?
We limit the number of newborn bookings we take each per week to allow us to be able to juggle babies arrival times. Your booking date is tentative until the baby has arrived and we know you and the baby will be leaving hospital. If baby makes an early or late arrival we will accommodate the change and simply ask that you keep us in the loop.
What about safety?
We have always had strict hygiene arrangements as we are dealing with the smallest and most precious humans. Everything is cleaned and sanitised between appointments to avoid any cross-contamination. We also only take one booking per day which allows enough time between appointments and the exclusive use of cleaned items. In addition we have been trained in the safe handling of newborn babies, we practice safe posing and never take chances with small babies. Any posing that may look like the baby is being held in the air or dangled from a hammock has been safely curated with baby being safely held or supported at all times.
Getting to the studio on the Lower North Shore
Our studio is in Waverton, between Crows Nest and the North Sydney CBD. We have easy on-site parking for convenience and safety. The trip to our studio is often your first outing with your new baby and so we are not strict on arrival time!
We can't wait to welcome you and your new baby to our lower North Shore studio and guarantee we will provide beautiful photographic memories of your new baby so that you never forget.
