Newborn Session – Newborn Photographer Gold Coast
Newborn Photography Session ~ K&B Photography
Hi, I’m Kristy, K&B Photography’s newborn photographer. I absolutely adore this amazing journey of bringing new life into the world, and take great pleasure in capturing these moments. Newborn babies are so pure and special [something I learned when our little man entered the world], so it made sense to focus my attention on birth and newborn photography.
We have a small, intimate studio in Mudgeeraba on the Gold Coast, where all of our newborn photography sessions are held…this is where we create lifelong memories.
Q: When is the best time to photograph my new baby?
A: The best time to photography a newborn baby is within the first 14 days (6-10 days is optimal). During this time they tend to sleep soundly and for longer periods of time, they generally settle easier and they are easier to curl into those beautiful poses we all love. I recommend you contact us during your pregnancy to advise us of your due date (which we will pencil into the calendar). Once you have had your baby, you can contact us once you’re home from the hospital so we can arrange a suitable date and time.
Don’t worry if you have left things a little late ~ older newborns still photograph well, so be sure to get in touch!
Q: Where are your newborn sessions held?
A: Our newborn sessions are held in our home studio in Mudgeeraba.
Q: How long will our session take?
A: A newborn session can take anywhere from 2-4 hours. This allows time for feeding and comforting as needed throughout the session. We also factor in time for mum, dad and any siblings to have their photo with the newest member of the family!
Q: What do we wear, and do we need to bring anything?
A: You can dress your baby in anything you like (preferably something that’s easy to take off), we will do most of bub’s photos either naked, or in a wrap. As for mum and dad (and siblings), wear something that you’re comfortable in – obviously keeping in mind that these are your professional portraits with your new baby! Stick to fairly neutral colours and avoid any large/bold prints that may distract from your baby. I do encourage mums to give yourself time to get ready, and suggest keeping makeup nice and natural.
As far as what to bring, I generally suggest some snacks (especially for the breastfeeding mumma and any siblings that may get peckish). Aside from that, there’s nothing else you need to bring. If you do have any props you would like used in the photos (eg. scan photo, headbands, a blanket made by grandma etc), you are welcome to bring these along too and we will try to include these where possible.
Q: When will we see our photos?
A: We will post a sneak peek of one image within 24hrs of your session (via our Facebook page); the rest of your images will be ready to view within 3 weeks of your session. When your images are ready, we will email you with a link and password to your online gallery. The gallery will contain no less than 20 images for you to view and will be open for viewing for 21 days. Once you’ve made your selection, please allow up to 14 days for delivery.
Q: What’s included?
A: Your session fee includes your pre-session consultation (this is where we plan your session and get excited about what we are going to create for you), my time and talent (up to 4hrs of custom styled newborn photography plus the time to carefully select and edit the images for your private gallery), your Facebook sneak peek and a private online gallery of no less than 20 images from your session.
All of my newborn sessions include images with parents and siblings – there is no extra charge for these images.
Please note that your session fee does not include any digital files/printed products. Products start at $250.
