Newborns should ideally be photographed under two weeks while they are still sleepy and curly. It is best to make a booking while you are still pregnant. A rough date will be held for you and confirmed once baby is born, so it is not necessary to know the exact birth date when booking. We have a beautiful custom designed home studio in Manurewa. The studio is always kept warm so baby will remain sleepy and comfortable. There are couches for you to sit back and relax while we capture those precious newborn moments.
CAN I HAVE MY BABY PHOTOGRAPHED BEYOND TWO WEEKS OF AGE?
Absolutely, age is no issue, it's just easier when they are under two weeks as they are sleepier If you are looking at our website and baby is already over two weeks of age please don’t hesitate to contact us. We have great success getting babies to sleep even up to 3 months of age. Amy has photographed well over 600 hundred babies and has only had one or two who have struggled to sleep. So if you want photos please Contact us.
We absolutely LOVE photographing newborns. It is such a joy to see a precious newborn. Having had four babies of her own (all in varying degrees of difficulty) Amy has a few techniques up her sleeve to help settle and calm your little one and her aim is to make you feel as relaxed about the session as possible. Please note that all sessions can include family and sibling photos at no extra charge.
