Heartfelt Images AIPP



The best time to book your newborn portraits is whilst you are still pregnant. I will pencil in your EDD and confirm a day and date for your session once your precious bundle has arrived.
If your baby has already been born, contact me as soon as possible and I will do my best to fit you in.
Newborn Portraits are best captured at 6-12 days of age and all the newborns you see on my website are under that age. Babies older than 14 days tend to be more alert and easily disturbed. They also quickly lose the flexibility they had in the womb, making the sweet 'curly' poses less likely.
Baby safety and comfort is always first and foremost in my mind during a session and I would never place a baby in a position that may be uncomfortable or compromise their safety.
My style is natural with the emphasis on your baby rather than brightly coloured props that draw attention away, however I do have a few less overwhelming props available for use during your session if requested.
All new babies from 0-8 weeks can be captured in sweet and timeless poses and all the precious details associated with newborns but sleepy curled poses will largely depend on the age of your baby.
After newborns, my favourite age to photograph babies is 6-9 months, when they are sitting unaided but not yet crawling. Such a wonderful age with smiles galore and big liquid eyes. Beautiful!
All newborn and baby portraits are captured in my natural light filled studio space on Phillip Island. Older babies and toddlers are photographed outdoors on location.
