NEWBORN & OLDER NEWBORN
Capturing portraits of your newborn baby’s sweet little details and the bond of your new family is beyond more than words could ever tell.
Newborn sessions are best booked in the early months of your pregnancy. Ideally once you know your due date and are in to your second trimester it’s time to contact Amy and schedule your booking.
Newborn babies are best photographed within the first 14 days after birth. This is while they are still easily settled and sleepy to be able to be posed. Newborn sessions usually run for a 3-4 hour duration and will include family and sibling poses.
Photography and posing of your newborn baby is done by Amy Kurczewski. Amy has completed a Certificate in Newborn Photography with the Academy of Newborn Photography, Completed Infant First Aid & CPR and is fully immunised.
6 MONTHS +
Sitter sessions are best done when your baby is confidently sitting on their own and before they are crawling. This gives us more chance to have them happy and content to be where we would like them to be and not investigating the surroundings of the studio. It will also allow the photographer Amy, to more easily have play time with your baby capturing their happy, beautiful smile and personality.
6 month + sessions usually go for a duration of 1-2 hours.
This is the perfect session to book as an alternative to the Cake Smash session for a milestone 1 year old – capturing their big 1st birthday but with just a lot less mess!
1st BIRTHDAY CAKE SMASH
What better way to capture a memory of your child’s milestone 1st birthday! With lots of smiles, lots of messy cake and a fun filled bubble bath!
During this session the attention is purely devoted to the birthday boy/girl celebrating their big day! Capturing portraits on their own, while smashing and devouring the cake, and then cleaning up in miniature clawfoot bath to wash away the evidence of any cake!
Cake smash sessions are best booked in advance and done around 11-14 months old and go for a duration of 1.5-2 hours.
Be mindful if you are wanting the photos to be on display at their birthday party as it’s best to organise session with a couple of weeks to spare before the party date for post processing and printing of images.
