A Lifestyle Newborn Session
with Colours of Gray Photography
Booking a newborn session is the perfect way to pause time and capture those tiny little details that you just want to bottle up forever.
I'm so grateful to have had that particular morning captured with my own children as newborns because as much as I wish I could remember every little detail, between the sleep deprivation and general blur of the first few months, it's the photos that do bring back those details and every time I look at the photos on my wall and look through my album, it takes me right back to that moment like it was yesterday.
Thank you for your interest in my business! I'm Angela, and it's lovely to meet you.
Your session takes place in the comfort of your own home, my key focus is capturing you spending this time with your baby- cuddling, relaxing, being in the moment and embracing this special time.
We can use any rooms in your home that you choose- your bedroom, baby's room, the lounge room, etc.
All I need is natural window light, and I will help you determine the best space and time of day for this prior to your session.
The majority of your session is a mix of guided candid moments. I am capturing your authentic story and it's amazing what unfolds naturally when you're just in the moment with your baby. Every session is so unique and I love following the lead of what your family creates.
Your baby can be awake or sleeping during your session, I generally find that babies start out awake and fall asleep during the session or start out asleep and wake up partway through. This gives me an opportunity to capture some snuggly sleepy moments of baby cuddling you and baby alone, as well as some interactive captures of baby listening to your voice and gazing up at you.
Your session will be approximately 1.5-2 hours. You can of course feed baby at any time during the session, change nappies, etc. There is no rush for anything- the whole purpose of this session is to capture authentic memories.
As far as what to wear, I recommend neutral or pastel colours for Mum, Dad and siblings and similar light colours on baby. You can also have baby wrapped in a blanket for the entire session or part of the session. I have a selection of neutral coloured, pink and blue knitted blankets, wraps and headbands that you are welcome to choose from and use throughout your session.
I gift each client a custom handmade birth announcement cushion with every session. It is such a special keepsake and makes for a beautiful image I can capture during your session.
My newborn sessions are $500 and include all images captured from your session, fully edited on USB and online for you to share.
I also offer maternity sessions for $400, or $800 for both maternity and newborn booked together.
Your maternity session includes 1 hour of photography at the location of your choice and all images captured from your session fully edited on USB and online gallery.
I would love to capture these moments for you. If interested, please fill in the form below and I will be in touch shortly. I look forward to hearing from you!
