Info & Pricing
My newborn photography sessions are laid back and very go with the flow. No set posing, just natural photos of you with your new little baby. Capturing that beautiful connection between you all, lots of cuddles, warmth and love.
“Jess is amazing. We were looking for someone to take newborn baby photos for our new little bundle of joy just prior to Christmas (One of the busiest times of year.) Not only was she amazingly accommodating She was patient, let him do his thing and we received the most amazing photos and memories because of it. We received our photos within the week. We are now looking at scheduling our next family shoot. We can honestly highly recommend Jess”
Family photos are so important - they preserve a period in your life, that disappears so quickly. Those early days in your little newborn bubble are so special and your little one changes and grows so so quickly. It is such a gift to be able to look back on these moments, and for your children to see what life was like when they were born.
When I photograph your family, I approach things quietly and casually. If you're new parents, life has just changed so (SO!) much and I want to give you the space to feel comfortable with me and my camera. And lets be real, I know a lot of people don't actually like having their photo taken, so you'll cuddle baby, we'll chat and I promise, it won't be painful :)
Short & Sweet Newborn
A lifestyle session with gentle direction that still allows the freedom of real interactions with your newborn baby. The session goes for approx an hour. Includes digital files.
Full Story Newborn
We'll spend 2-3 hours hanging out at your home, capturing all the moments with your new baby with a completely candid, documentary approach. This session is popular when there is an older sibling or 2. Digital files included
2 Sessions - One session for newborn photos and use the 2nd session for either some with that beautiful pregnant belly or maybe for down the track for when baby is a bit older. Both sessions go for 1 hour and held within 12months. Includes digital files.
Family Fine Art Album
Australian, handmade 8x12" album with quality fine art paper. This is the perfect keepsake from your session. Includes 20 of your favourite images.
What should we wear?
I want you to feel completely comfortable and like yourselves in your session. I don't want to dictate the style of your clothing as I feel this is such a personal thing. So being yourself is key. Clothes that are complimentary in colour is obviously helpful for a cohesive look, so choosing a few colours to work around with your clothing can be helpful to bring it all together.
Do you bring any props or wraps?
I like to keep your sessions completely yours and natural. I don't do any set posing so don't use props and I prefer you wrap or dress baby in your own babies clothes - maybe you've been given a beautiful wrap or have a family heirloom baby blanket. I feel its more special and will help you remember more of these times if we use your own things.
Where are you based?
I am based in Nundah, Brisbane and am available for sessions within the general Brisbane area. I am also available for Newborn Sessions on the Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast or even interstate however a travel fee may apply. Get in touch if you'd like more info.
My spouse hates having photos taken…
We photograph loads of people that don’t like being in front of the camera (I’m one of these people so I totally get it) I keep things very light and casual, you don't need to pose or pretend. Just be you and we will keep it as pain free as possible :)
How far ahead do we need to book?
As I have my own little family I take on a limited number of sessions so if you’re interested in having me photograph your family please get in touch and we can chat about availability.
Can we purchase our images?
Yes, no matter which package you book, they will include edited high resolution images all conveniently available to download through your online gallery. This gallery is also an easy way to share your photos with your family and friends.
Can we purchase prints and albums?
Having your photos printed and displayed around your home for you to enjoy every day is exactly what we want! Beautiful Fine Art prints are available for purchase through your online gallery. Our Fine Art Albums are an excellent way to tell the story of your family. These can also be purchased after your family photography session. Just get in touch for pricing.
Where will we do the shoot?
For newborn sessions we mostly hold these in your home as this is most comfortable for baby and easier to manage everything not going anywhere! I can do newborn photography sessions on location if preferred.
How do we book?
We ask for a $200 deposit to book in your session, all our bookings are done online - just let us know which session type you’d like and we’ll get a date locked in for you.
