One of the most popular times to have professional photographs taken is after the birth of a baby. Unlike posed newborn images my natural style of photography does not require that sessions be held within the first 10 days of life and they can occur anytime from days to weeks to months after birth. Given the unpredictability of when babies arrive - coupled with the fact these sessions are a little more time consuming, both to shoot and to edit - I only take on a limited number of newborn sessions each month. For this reason where possible I ask you contact me to book during your second or early on in your third trimester. However, life can be unpredictable and from time to time I have cancellations so if time got away from you and bub has already arrived please still contact me as I may have a last minute opening in my calendar.
Getting started is as easy as submitting an enquiry via my contact form. Upon receipt I'll send you a text so you know I got it and you will know it is me and not a telemarketer when I call. At a time you've nominated I'll ring to introduce myself and answer any questions you may have. If you are ready to book we can discuss specifics or you are welcome to take your time to think things over after our call.
ENQUIRY + initial phone consultation
Once you have made the decision to book we will get you on my calendar. I will then email you your booking documents which include a contract to be reviewed and digitally signed and your invoice and payment schedule. I will also send you a session questionnaire so you have the chance to provide me all the info I need to plan your session.
In the leadup to your session you can contact me at anytime if a question comes to mind. I have written a number of resources and documents which I can provide to you including location and clothing guides, advice on preparing children for sessions and information on local attractions or things to do before or after your session.
A week prior to your session I will make contact to discuss your location choice, give you directions and confirm our precise start time. Then comes the main event, your session. I will take you exploring through the forests or gardens, stopping to take a range of both candid and gently posed images as we go. I will be one part tour guide, one part friend and one part photographer.
Within a few days of your session I will provide a sneak peek image to reassure you that we got great photos. Within 14 days you will receive your password protected, online gallery. From there you can select your included digital files and purchase any additional files, prints or wall art pieces you may want. I am available throughout this process to advise you and provide technical support as needed.

"We were blown away with the amazing photos Kate captured of our gorgeous newborn son. The outdoor location was perfect and Kate made everything so relaxed and easy on the day. The whole process was flawless and overall a fantastic experience."
"Kate was amazing with my 2.5 year old daughter and my newborn son. Her photographs of my family are absolutely beautiful and she captured my children’s personalities perfectly. I highly recommend Kate to everyone. I also received my photography very quickly, which I was amazed at. Thanks again Kate, I can’t wait for you to capture more photos of my family in the future."
"Kate was such a responsive, agile and calming person to photograph me and my small family. I made a last minute decision and she made it work, talked me through everything and was always so quick to answer my questions - and generous! Such a wonderful experience and I highly recommend it, the photos are just beautiful."
