Babies are beautiful, and so are the mothers who carry them. That’s why we love photographing our babies in the context of the family…not the staged photographs of babies asleep on buckets or sleeping on a guitar…but the natural photographs of a baby being held by his/her parents or sibling, and capturing the relationships which are beginning to form.
This is not possible for a newborn, so I encourage all mothers to bring their baby in for a session when they are at least 4 weeks old. This gives the child a chance to start developing a personality, start smiling, put on some weight, and for the mother to lose some of the dark circles from underneath her eyes…
Baby shoots are $300, and combined with the baby bump photographs, $400. We encourage all expecting Mums to drag their husband or partner to our studio for the MATERNITY SHOOT. We give you about 50 edited photos and include it on the USB with the BABY SHOOT taken later. What a brilliant idea! How many photographers do two shoots at separate times~ then give you all your digital negatives to print and enlarge without selling you your photographs afterwards? It doesn’t seem fair to us, somehow. This industry needs shaking up!
