SESSION DETAILS

I am currently booking maternity, birth, newborn, baby and family sessions.


Subject

Newborn Photography is my absolute passion. It simply warms my heart to be able to capture such a precious moment in this little person’s life. Their little fingers and toes, their wispy hair and that little button nose! These tiny features are but a few that change so dramatically in the early days, so it’s absolutely essential that we capture them before they disappear forever. I prefer to photograph your precious baby around 10-16 days old. As newborns get older they tend to sleep less soundly and do not curl up as easily, have longer awake times and become rather challenging to settle.


Booking

It is never too early to book a newborn session! As your baby’s birth date is unpredictable I will reserve a time frame for you, it is very important to contact me to reserve a date while you are still pregnant. If you are given an induction or c-section date, the actual session date can be booked in advance. If you are letting nature decide, I will expect an email from you as soon as your baby arrives.


Investment

Please email me at info@melissasheedphotography.com.au for more information. When inquiring, please include your due date (or baby’s birth date), telephone number and location.


Session

Maternity sessions are generally held when you are between 32-36 weeks pregnant, and held in studio or at a location of your choice. Maternity sessions generally last 45-60 minutes. Newborn sessions are held at my studio South of the River.

Newborn sessions tend to last approximately 2.5 hours, allowing plenty of time for feedings, soothing and a variety of poses and set ups for your baby’s unique gallery of images.
