The Info

You need to know

When your precious new baby enters the world they are very sleepy and still quite malleable. That is why I recommend scheduling your newborn portrait session while you are pregnant and for the first week of you babies life. Usually between 6-12 days.

After this age, babies tend to become more alert and aware of the world around them and not too amused when someone keeps moving them.

The best way to ensure availability is to book in when you reach your third trimester.

The styling of your session is soft, simple and classic. So that for years to come your photos will not date.



All newborn sessions require a $200 creative fee which covers my time and talent on the day of your shoot.

Newborn sessions, allow up to 3 hours in my Morley natural light studio.
Packages start from $550.

Maternity Sessions, 1 hour in the studio or outdoors at sunset. All maternity clothing can be supplied by Mel if you wish.
