Trusting your newborn baby to another person is a big step, Felicity has been a Registered Paediatric Nurse since 2006. Her priority is the safety and comfort of your newborn at all times. The newborn photography session is guided by your newborn on that day and all newborn posing is conducted in a safe manner. Felicity is fully immunised and is a Registered Nurse instructor for infant and child CPR/first aid courses in the Melbourne community.
Newborn photography sessions are ideally held between 6-14 days post birth. Reasons for this are: newborns remain sleepiest at this age and it allows Felicity to better achieve those beautiful soft curly poses. However I can and do work with newborns older than 14 days, 6-14 days is just ideal.
In studio newborn photography sessions take approximately 3-4 hours. Sessions can take this long depending on the newborn is behaving on the day of the shoot. Newborns are very precious and unpredictable and may need extra feeding or settling on the day. The amount of setups and family members can also affect the time, however I always do my best to minimise the time but make the most use of it. I have a large play space for siblings, comfy lounge areas and refreshments available to make your experience enjoyable.
In home newborn lifestyle photography sessions in Melbourne are also available. These sessions run for 2 hours and I bring everything to your home that may be required. These sessions are truly special and focus on pure, natural and candid moments.
All props, wraps, blankets, simple sibling tops and dresses are supplied for all newborn photography sessions. You’re welcome to bring anything sentimental along that you wish to be incorporated into your photographs.
Discussions prior to the photo shoot will help me to create a tailored styling set up and experience for you and your family.
Bookings are encouraged during your pregnancy to avoid missing out on a session. Bookings are made for 7 days post your due date and sessions are confirmed once your newborn arrives.
My prices are all inclusive and no separate sessions fees apply.
