We suggest that you book as early as possible, however we do take bookings at any time. We limit the numer of Newborn session bookings per month to ensure we can fit every family in within the 10-day time-frame after the baby is born. Therefore, we suggest that you book as early as possible.
When you book we take note of your due date, and ensure that we have availability around your due date. When your baby arrives, contact us the day after they are born (if possible) and we will schedule a date.
Ideally, If Mum & Bub are both well, we like to capture your session within the first 10 days after birth. Sometimes this is not possible, and that is ok. We will schedule your appointment as your earliest convenience.
Most of our Newborn Sessions are booked for 9.30am. if this isn’t convenient for you, we can discuss another time.
We offer 1 weekend session per month, therefore if you require a weekend session, we highly suggest that you book early to ensure that you secure the weekend booking.
Yes, you are welcome to visit the studio (by appointment) prior to your session to choose props and outfits. If this is not possible, you can choose them at the beginning of your session, or we can choose them for you.
Newborn safety is paramount. I have trained with some of Australia’s top Newborn Photographers, and Newborn Safety is my top priority during sessions. I will always ensure that your baby is safe and comfortable. However. I always encourage parents to let me know if I am suggesting a prop or pose that they do not like or feel safe with.
You are welcome to bring other people to the session; however, the studio only has seating for 3 adults. The studio is kept very warm to make your baby comfortable and sleepy, and can sometimes feel a little too warm for the adults in the room. We have a waiting area with Foxtel and Netflix and other family members are welcome to wait in this area. Children are welcome to play in our garden if supervised by a responsible adult. Often the Newborn is very sensitive to their surroundings. We have found that sessions where many extended family members attend, the baby can be more unsettled. We encourage parents to consider this when inviting other family members to the session.
Upon booking your newborn session with Imy & Me Photography, we will send you a booklet outlining what to bring, wear and do. We will also call you prior to your session to go through these questions, and to answer any other questions you might have.
