Newborn Photography session
It’s ideal to book your newborn photography session during pregnancy, as we take limited bookings every week at our Auckland studio. Please book early to ensure our availability for your due date. We then welcome you to contact us on babies arrival to secure the best time for your session.
Newborn photography sessions are mostly done within babies first 4-12 days; this ensures the baby is relaxed, sleepy and posing is smooth and natural. If you have touched base with us and the baby is older than 12 days, please don’t panic. We have had some beautiful sessions with older babies and the same newborn photography experience.
Maternity Photography when to book
A maternity photoshoot is ideal to book at approximately 30-35 weeks; you will be a perfect size and not too close for our early arrivals and will be most comfortable posing. We encourage you to book your Maternity photography session as early as you can from 12 weeks so we can ensure there is space secured for you in your maternity photographer calendar.
Cake smash baby's first birthday
An ideal time to book your one-year cake smash photography session is when the baby is around 11-12 months old. These sessions focus on capturing babies personality as it starts to shine through this special time.
It’s best to book a cake smash session two months in advance to secure a calendar slot and to give us enough time to design the theme setup in our photography studio. It’s a baby-only photo shoot, but please contact us if you like to add on family photos.
