Newborn photography is a very specialised genre of photography and you only have one chance to get it right.
The ideal time to photograph newborns is between 5 and 10 days old; so please book your session as soon as you know your due date. I will make a provisional booking for 10 days after your due date and we can adjust this if your baby is early or late.
I aim to create beautiful, soft & timeless images using natural tones & textures that best compliment your babies. Trust me with your new baby and your first family memories..
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO PHOTOGRAPH MY BABY?
The best time to photograph newborns is between 5 and 10 days. You will need to book in your session well in advance so give me a call as soon as you know your due date. I will make a provisional booking for 10 days after your due date and we can amend it if your baby is early or late. Because newborn sessions can take up to four hours I only book them Monday to Friday and all newborn sessions start at 10am. I only ever book in one newborn session a day so there is no rushing your baby.
DO YOU WORK ON WEEKENDS?
Unfortunately no, all of my newborn sessions are booked Monday to Friday.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
There is a session fee of R2,500. This covers my time and expertise and includes mum’s make-up and hair styling on the day. You are mostly paying for a wonderful experience that you will remember forever, it is such a special time in your life and I want to capture that for you.
DO YOU HAVE EXPERIENCE PHOTOGRAPHING NEWBORN BABIES SAFELY?
This is an excellent question and one that does not get asked enough. A typical newborn session can last up to four hours and your baby will be with me for most of that time. I have been photographing newborn babies for over 3 years and have been trained to handle and pose them safely. I practice safe posing techniques and put the comfort and safety of your baby first.
DO I NEED TO BRING ANY PROPS OR ACCESSORIES TO MY NEWBORN SESSION?
There is no need to as I have a large beautiful props and accessories. However, if you have something special that you would like me to include in your pictures, please feel free to bring it along. I have a selection of outfits, fabrics and accessories that we can use to style your session. Once you have booked your session I will send you a guide on what to bring to your session.
IS IT POSSIBLE FOR MY PARTNER AND OTHER CHILDREN TO BE INCLUDED IN THE SESSION?
Of course! having a new baby is an exciting time for everyone in the family and I would love to document that for you. For extended family members please bear in mind that my studio is nice and cosy and I limit my sessions to 4.
WHEN WILL I SEE THE IMAGES THAT ARE TAKEN?
Roughly 2 weeks after your session.
CAN I BUY JUST THE DIGITAL FILES?
The session include both the printed and digital copies of photographs in your collection. The digital files cannot be bought separately. Professional pictures deserve to be displayed on only the best quality professional products and are the only sure way to archive your beautiful memories.
HOW MANY PICTURES DO YOU TAKE?
On the day of your session I will photograph you in different outfits and poses. You will then receive 15 beautifully edited photographs after your session.

My studio is based in Monavoni, Centurion. It is conveniently located off the N14 highway at the R55 offramp. The studio is inside the Silverstone Country Estate.
