Booking a Newborn Session with Shae Leesa Photography ensures your gallery will be full of classic, beautiful, pure and simple images... My newborn sessions are about capturing your baby in their first few weeks, creating images that will be treasured by your family forever.
My Studio: Newborn Sessions are held at my in-home studio in Ooralea (Mackay), Queensland and last approximately 2.5 hours. All props and accessories are provided for your sweet little baby so you won't have to bring anything other than your nappy bag to your photoshoot. My studio, props and equipment are set up exclusively for baby photography. All hats, wraps, blankets, tiebacks and baskets have been sourced from the best suppliers both in Australia and internationally and have been hand selected by myself to ensure they suit the style I strive to achieve in my photography.
Bookings: For me to be able to capture those gorgeous sleepy curled-up shots of your little one, I like to schedule the Newborn Session when your little one is between 5-16 days old. It is best to book your Newborn Session while you are still pregnant as my calendar tends to book up months in advance.
Although it is preferred that your baby is between 5-16 days old for this session, I have successfully photographed babies as old as 7 weeks as 'newborns'. It is a little more tricky and may take more time - but if you have left it a little late and are still wanting cute 'newborn' photo's please get in touch as soon as you can and I will try fit you into my calendar!
If you are from a more rural location please know that I will fit you into my calendar before heading home, I have clients from Moranbah, Dysart, Airlie Beach and beyond that come to Mackay for the birth of their little ones. I simply enter your due date in my calendar as a tentative booking and when your baby has arrived I ask that you send me a text or email and we will organise a date for your session (this can be done when your baby is as young as 3 days old).
Safety: My tiny clients health and safety is 100% my priority during any session. I train with leading newborn photographers regularly to keep up with all aspects of safety when posing your baby. This is something that every newborn photographer should do as certain poses are dangerous if newborns are not being supported properly. Please be assured that I am very aware of this fact and during the photoshoot I may ask Mum or Dad to assist me in supporting baby or to stand close and keep a watchful eye on baby while I take a photo or hunt for a prop.
As a photographer that is constantly in close contact with babies of all ages, keeping up to date with vaccinations is very important to me. My family and I are up to date on all vaccinations including but not limited to whooping cough. In the event that I get a head cold or cough at the time of your scheduled photoshoot, I will to consult you on your options, I will happily reschedule your sessions, otherwise if time is a worry I have a stash of medical masks on hand that I can wear during your session.
