Frequently Asked Questions 

When is the best time to book a newborn session?

 

You can make a booking at any time during your pregnancy and provide me with an estimated due date and I can make a tentative booking. When you arrive home with bubs you can contact me to arrange a suitable day and time for your session.

 

When is the best time to get newborn photo taken?

 

To achieve beautiful sleepy newborn images, newborn sessions are best scheduled when your baby is under two weeks of age.  However, newborns are always beautiful and I can capture images at any stage.

 

How long does a newborn session take?

 

I never rush a newborn session. I like to allow time for feeding, comforting and settling. A typical session can be anywhere from 2 – 4 hours.

 

How do I book?

 

To book a photography session you can email contact@jhcnewbornphotography.com.au  or call 0423087786.

 

What do I need to wear, and what do I need to bring?

 

The studio is very warm. I suggest wearing something cool and comfortable. If you are having photographs with your baby neutral clothing with no logos works best. Under session information there is more information on what to wear.

Unless you would like your baby in a specific or special outfit I will supply everything needed. If your child is older than newborn (older than1 month old) you will need to supply the clothes you would your child photographed in.

 

Are you vaccinated against whooping cough?

 

YES! Absolutely. I am up to date with all my vaccinations including whooping cough. There is nothing more important to me than the safety of you and your baby.  I am also fully insured and hold a current working with children’s check.

 

Do you offer gift vouchers?

 

I offer gift vouchers from $50 to full session. You can email me at contact@jhcnewbornphotography.com.au  to organise purchase of a voucher.

 

How do I choose my images?

 

Two weeks after your session I will provide you with a password to access your images from my client gallery on the website. The gallery will be open for 10 days for you to make your selection. All images will be presented in both colour and black and white.

 

Where are you located?

 

My beautiful studio is located in Caroline Springs, Melbourne. I have both natural light and studio lighting. However, being a parent myself I understand how hard it is taking a new baby out so I also offer mini session at your own home.

 

What happens during a mini session at your own home?

 

I bring a selection of props, blankets and clothes to your house together with my posing beanbag, backdrop stand and camera equipment. 

 

 

Do you take photos of my other children with my new baby?

 

Absolutely. In a newborn session I photograph the baby, baby with siblings then if you are wanting family photographs we can do that too.
