Geelong In-Home Newborn Photoshoot
There is something so intimate and personal about having a newborn photoshoot in your own home. Capturing exactly where your little family is at, at that specific point in time is really something worth capturing and having those forever memories documented. Your personal style and the details of your home, because in 10 or 15 years you may have moved or renovated or your style has just changed completely. And then your baby, as they grow up they get to have these amazing visuals of what it was like in their first home! That's pretty special and I'm here for it all!!
My in-home Newborn sessions are relaxed, I allow up to 2 hours, to give us plenty of time if baby needs to be fed or settled, there's no rush! I know that nobody in that hazy newborn bubble really feels like cleaning their house, and that's ok, it doesn't need to be spotless, but a clean kitchen bench and a made bed in the parents room will do wonders. And if you have a Grandma or Grandad living near by, this is exactly the type of helpful job they can be recruited to do right! HA! Earn those baby cuddles!
I bring little outfits and a variety of knit blankets along so you don't need to worry about any of that if you don't want to! And now that my kids are a bit older, I'm also keen for all the baby cuddles, so if they are unsettled or need rocking to sleep, you can have a cup of tea and I'm happy to do the rocking and the shushing!
When is the best time to book in?
I would say the earlier the better as I want to get there in the first 6 weeks of bubs being on the outside! And if I'm booked out already during that time I won't be able to fit you in! I know that babies rarely ever arrive on their due-dates (unless its a scheduled appointment) so once you are booked I ensure to leave flexibility in my schedule in case the dates need to change by a week or two! I like to do my newborn shoots at around 10am.
The best thing to do is to CONTACT ME HERE and let me know your due date and if you have any date requests. I will get back to you with my availability. All I need to secure your date is a $100 deposit, and the remainder isn't due until the day of the shoot. If an at home shoot isn't your style, I also have a small home studio (best for small families with only 1 older sibling) or an outdoor sunset or sunrise photoshoot.
I live in Geelong, but will happily travel to Torquay or the Bellarine for an in-home newborn photoshoot
