The best time
Newborns are photographed during their first 14 days of life (best time frame is 5-10 days old). They are sleepy and co-operative to posing at this age. It is important to book your newborn session before baby is born.
Newborn photography is only available on weekdays. Most successful studio shoots with a newborn are scheduled at 9:30AM or 10AM in the morning.
I do photograph newborns that are 14-30 days old. These shoots are more difficult and poses are limited. Mini shoot is the only package option for an older newborn.
What to Expect
I photograph the newborn, parents and siblings. I provide all props, wraps, headbands and hats for the newborn for both boys and girls.
Outdoor Newborn Photography Information
I photograph all year round. The baby is kept warm with wraps and outfits during the winter months. Outdoor shoots are done during the golden hour (approximately 2 hours before sunset). I have 2 forest locations available where this is done – one in Somerset West and one in Cape Town Southern Suburbs.
