How To Book Your Photo Shoot From Pymble

Welcoming a new baby into your life is indeed a reason to have some professional photographs taken.  Not only so you can remember just how tiny your little one once was but also so that you can freeze that time and preserve it forever.  I guarantee a printed photograph of your newborn will make you smile every time you pass by it (even if you are in a sleep-deprived haze!)

Please contact us as early as possible and we will email our newborn brochure to you with all the details.


FAQ to help you understand the process better:

When is the best time for my newborn photo session?


Newborns are best photographed in their first two weeks and preferable around 6-12 days old.  After that short window newborns lose the ability to curl up into those sweet, sleepy poses such as those in my gallery.  It also is a time when your newborn just sleeps soundly so the session will not disrupt the baby's schedule.  In order to guarantee a booking during that short period, it is best if you book about midway through your pregnancy.  


How long is a session?

Sessions with just the baby being photographed are usually about 1-2hrs, if family and more specifically siblings are being photographed as well this takes 2-3 hours (sometimes a fair bit of negotiation is involved with a truculent two year old!).  The time frame is long because we stop if your baby needs a feed and this can take up to 45mins depending on the baby.


We are happy to photograph just the baby or even to include the whole family.  Toddlers always make for a fun shoot and it is nice to be able to capture the excitement of a new brother or sister with their new sibling.

Where is the studio?

I have a dedicated two-room studio in Waverton (near North Sydney) with onsite parking.  I have a full range of items specifically made for newborn photography as well as all the required lighting and backdrops.


Do you do in-home sessions?

Unfortunately, I can not offer these due to the specialised equipment and props that I use. It also means that the images you see on my website are taken under the same conditions you see in my portfolio so I can guarantee yours will look the same (after all that is why you are booking me isn’t it?).  My studio is very comfortable and many a client has used the time to take a nap.  We are close to coffee shops and parks as well so if dad and the rest of the family want to leave it is easy for them to do so.


What if I give birth earlier or later than my due date?

We ask our clients to book well before birth to avoid disappointment.  I limit the number of newborn bookings per week but allow enough room to juggle the changes in arrival times.  Your booking is tentative until the baby has arrived. We simply ask our clients to let us know as early as possible after birth if we are going to have to move the date. Obviously, your health and that of your baby is the number one priority so we will also adjust the date if needed for those reasons too.

What about coronavirus?

Everybody’s safety is the number one priority in these strange times.  Even before this year, the studio had strict hygiene practices in place to ensure the safety of all our newborn clients.  All items and fabrics are cleaned and sanitised between babies (always have been). I also only take one booking per day to allow time between sessions and the exclusive use of sanitised items.

Getting to the studio from Pymble


The trip from Pymble to our studio will take you around 25 minutes by car.  We have easy on-site parking that we encourage you to use for convenience and for your family’s safety.  The trip to our studio is often your first outing with your new baby and we are very tolerant and flexible on arrival time!


I look forward to welcoming you all into the studio and providing you with photographic memories of your new baby so that you never forget.
