FAQ

What can I expect from a newborn shoot?

Firstly, I take your little one into the studio to start with the photos while mom's hair and make-up is being done. When I am done with the baby photos, mom will have a moment to breastfeed before we start with the family photos. I try to plan the photo session with colors that you love and then I use my style and creativity to fill in the rest. During a newborn shoot we have to expect the unexpected, like a cry, an extra feed or a dirty nappy. I work well with whichever space the baby is in - with lots of patience. A newborn session is all about styling and making sure that the baby is comfortable. It is a craft! A session like this can take up to three hours.

How should I prepare for a newborn session?

Your baby should be fully fed and enjoy a warm bath before you leave for the studio. This will give me a sleepy baby which is exactly what I need. Please remember your nappy bag with wet wipes, powder and whatever else you use for cleaning your baby. Also bring along your pacifier, if you use one, and a small bit of milk in a bottle. Wear plain clothes that doesn't have lots of details, lines or blocks. We want the focus to be on the baby:)

Where are you based and do you travel?

I'm based in Durbanville, Cape Town, with my studio in Heritage Square, and yes I love to travel! If you want me to photograph your story, it will require a travel fee and/or stay over fee, depending on where it takes place.

When will we get our photos?

Your will receive an online gallery link with all your photos within maximum 2 weeks (sometimes less depending on the season I photograph your story). You can download all the high resolution photos from the gallery to share, choose your favorites, and print!

How many pictures will we receive?

Each package on the Investments page will specify the amount of photos included. I always choose quality rather than quantity. To make sure that you will be happy with the given photos, I give you the option of choosing your photos.

Why do people want to photograph their child's birth?

A birth is a once in a lifetime event that goes by in a flash. It is usually so overwhelming that the parents rarely remember everything. Having your child's birth photographed gives you the opportunity to look back at the photos and remember the special emotions that you and your partner shared on that day. Most of the time I find that toddlers find a place of belonging in these photos when they see where their lives started, and the joy with which their parents received them.

Will I be able to meet the photographer before I choose to hire her for my birth?

Yes, absolutely! I offer a free coffee consultation with all my clients at my studio in Durbanville. I prefer meeting my clients face to face. It is also necessary to talk about your Birth Plan and to give you the opportunity to ask questions.
