STEP 2:

THE PHOTOSHOOT

Where the magic happens! 

Newborn sessions are in the studio and very relaxed and calm, unless there is a toddler or two in your family :) which is all good as I have four kids of my own and know it all!

Maternity sessions can be in studio or outdoors, depending on the look you’d love for your images.

Family session are fun and can be done is studio or outdoors!

STEP 3:

VIEW, DESIGN & ORDERING appointment

The exciting part! Seeing your photos for the first time!

About 2-3 weeks following your session is the Viewing, design and ordering appointment. 

The appointment will be in Studio where we will select your favorites images and design the best way to display your images if you wanted to purchase wall art, or design an album, or select the collection of digital images your would like to invest in.

The aim is to create something special just for you!

All purchases is made at the appointment.

COLLECT AND ENJOY

Digital image purchases can be download from the online gallery after payment is received and all your beautiful heirloom items will be ready around six weeks later for collection or delivery.

The final step will be to show them off in your home and enjoy them every single day!

Finished artwork is my specialty, something you and your family will treasure for generations...not just digital in a drawer or file on your pc!

NEWBORN

A new baby is like the beginning of all things... wonder... hope... a dream of possibilities

– By Eda J. Le Shan             

My aim is to create beautiful images of your precious newborn baby and family... so you can look back on this time 40 years from now and still remember those little hands... toes... every little detail...as you know that in just a few short weeks they will no longer be this tiny newborn you brought home from the hospital.

I create a calm, relaxing environment for you to sit back and enjoy as you watch your precious little one be photographed by me. I really want to create something special for you as I know how much this means to you...

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME?

Newborns best photographed in their first two weeks (4-10 days) of arrival for the sleepy, curly poses, but can be done up to 3 months of age.  For that reason, it is advised that you book in advance whilst you are still pregnant (to avoid missing out). I will book you in according to your due date and confirm your session date once baby arrives. The second trimester is the best time to book, some book as early as 12 weeks. 

Siblings and immediate family are included in the session as it’s such a beautiful time to celebrate family.

STYLE

My style is natural, simple and personalized to suit your chosen color scheme. I believe in simple and timeless images... I want these images to be ageless so keeping it simple with your baby as the main focus is what I love to capture. I do love to add soft textures and I have a beautiful range of luxury, handmade wraps, hats, headbands and soft textures available for use. No need for you to bring anything (unless you have something special or heirloom you wish to include). Together we will carefully select these items to design your session to suit your own style and home. I have 3 setups available for babies images, the wooden prop on wooden floor backdrop,  the fur and the plain backdrop. Family and sibling images is taken on the white back drop. So if you are unsure on what to wear, have a look on the "what to wear" page under the Investment heading

HOW LONG?

Every baby and family is different and for that reason I don’t have set time frames. I allow plenty of time for feeding and settling your baby. Sessions generally last 2-3 hours however, your baby will take the lead for the day. With my expertise of handling many newborns I certainly know the best ways to calm, soothe, relax and safely pose your precious little one. (and I’m a pretty good with toddler too)

WHERE?

Newborn sessions take place in my Carey bay studio. Mon, Fri & Saturdays from 10am or all weekdays from 4pm and will be set for your optimum comfort. The studio will be ready and waiting for you. You can sit back relax and enjoy the experience and the wonder of your new little bundle of joy. 

MATERNITY

Nine months preparing to fall in love

for a lifetime...

 

 

After many years of photographing pregnancy and newborns, I have found that a  maternity session is the perfect way to complement a newborn session and tell the story of this wonderful journey.

BABY BUMP

It is such a special time in your lives and definitely worth celebrating and therefore, encourage your partner and children to be part of this session. 

Your maternity session can take place at any time but I find between 35-38weeks to be ideal.  Studio or outdoor sessions are available with a maternity session.

FAMILY

Your growing family is amazing and what better way to celebrate them than through professional portraiture.

 

 

Family session is fun family time or a workout session if there is a toddler in the family! We can do the session in studio or we can do this in a location somewhere special to you or one of my regular go to locations. If your fur baby is just as much part of the family as everyone you may also include them in the outdoor session. Extended family sessions are also available for the outdoor session or if not to many people we could do a studio session as well.  

Most sessions would take around one hour and outdoor sessions are generally best taken within the few hours prior to sunset or at sunrise. Sunrise session only available Saturdays and Sunset Monday to Saturday. Studio session can be done during the week or Saturdays. Weekend spots are limited and book out fast. If you want to get in and secure your preferred date please select your date via my online booking calendar.

I want this to be a fun family experience. I know sometimes it’s not dad’s thing or maybe we don’t feel comfortable in front of the camera… but hey that’s why I’m here I’m the professional. I’m here to make this as easy and enjoyable as possible for you all. And don’t worry about the kids – they’ll be fine!

I also offer just Siblings /Portrait/ Milkbath  studio sessions! Don't forget to keep an eye out for seasonal promotions like Easter, Christmas, Mother's day etc. and my BOX sessions!

WHAT TO WEAR?

This is the most commonly asked question and worry for parents when scheduling a photoshoot.

Again, don’t stress I’ll give you my best tips on how to get the best possible results. We will keep it simple and always have your end goal and style in mind.  I always tell families to send me through photos when planning their outfits, if they need help along the way.  
Remember I do this all the time, I don’t expect everyone who knows what they are doing.

 

 SOUNDS GREAT...

LET’S DO THIS!
