How To Book Your Photo Shoot From Willoughby

Newborn photography is done within the first two weeks of birth so as not to disrupt the baby's schedule and to get lovely relaxed, curly poses.  We suggest booking a tentative date in your second trimester as we are often booked out, and we will schedule an appointment around 8-10 days after birth.  Don't worry though we are pretty flexible if we need to tweak the date based on baby’s arrival date or how you are feeling as our other babies booked for that week will be in the same position.  Please contact us as early as possible and we will email our newborn brochure to you with all the details.

What’s Next?

When you know you would like to book we will send you a booking form that way we can tailor the session to you and your taste preferences.  We will ask you to select some options when you book so we know exactly what you like for your newborn photography session.

Do you include family photographs?

Yes, these are very important!  We will take individual portraits with each family member as well as some group photographs.  Our clients generally hang the family portraits proudly on their walls.  We are also happy to do the photographs of just the baby if that is your preference.

The days Before The Session 

A few days prior to your session date we will send an easy checklist of what to bring with you. 

I provide everything needed for the baby in terms of clothing, hats, headbands, wraps and props.  My items are specifically made for newborn photography and are correctly sized.  You are welcome to bring personal touches as well such as a hand-knitted blanket and we will include it in the photographs.

What the family members should wear

We will send you some clothing suggestions as to what works well for family clothing.  We also have a range of gowns that you can borrow for your newborn shoot and some plain tee shirts if you forget a shirt.   Whatever you choose you should feel comfortable wearing.  Feel free to ask for advice if you need it!


Getting to the studio

The trip from Willoughby to our studio will take you about 10-15 minutes by car.  We have easy on-site parking that we encourage you to use for convenience and for your family’s safety.

During Your Baby Photography Session Near Willoughby

There is not much you will need to do during the session.  We encourage you to relax, scroll through the internet or even have a quick nap!  When your baby needs something such as a feed, a clean nappy or just a quick hug we will have a break.  The session is all about your baby and we will ensure that they are happy and comfortable whilst they are in our studio.


How long until I receive the photographs?

We deliver all our galleries via an online photosystem which allows you to view, download and share a beautiful individualised photo album to whomever you want.   Your photographs will be ready one to two weeks after your session.  If you choose to order prints, canvases, books or other products we have a large range to choose from and they usually take two weeks to arrive.


We look forward to seeing your family in the studio and providing you with beautiful photo memories so that you never forget.
