Good morning Lealie, what a wonderful time it is for you. I would be honoured to capture your final weeks of pregnancy. I was once a Hawthorn gal, which park where you thinking? Beautiful rocket ship park? Any of the parks and gardens in Hawthorn are just beautiful. I have been photographing for over 25 years, I specialise in capturing candid portraits and am currently building my newborn portfolio. I am moving my studio currently and am offering completely free newborn shoots for mums who take a maternity shoot. Therefore, my offer includes over $500 of value, a 1 hour shoot (no longer for you in this cooler weather we are having and we don't want to exhaust you), 10 print ready images of your matshoot as well as a newborn shoot in my newly updated home studio, 10 print ready images of your newborn should you wish to proceed. I am available Tuesdays -Thursdays and can arrange weekends if that's the only time your partner is available(I already have bokings this weekend, so next weekend on). Check out my profile portfolio:)

Thanks

Hey Lealie,

Congratulations on your pregnancy! I am a Maternity and Newborn Photographer based in Montmorency. I have been working with growing families for over 8 years and am fully accredited with the AIPP.

Maternity sessions are such a beautiful time for me to photograph. I like to treat these sessions much like a couples session. With just a small focus on your belly, but more so, the three of you, living the moment, before your whole world changes. I take a lifestyle approach to my sessions, limiting the poses, giving you much more opportunity to just be you with your loved ones. I will often tell you to forget I am there and just be, let the moment take place without too much direction or interruption. Have a laugh, a cuddle, hold hands, rub your belly, explore the surroundings and just imagine who the little person growing inside will become. You can see my maternity image gallery on my website, which you are welcome to have a browse through.

These sessions are best held at around 34-38 weeks, so we have a couple of weeks leeway to get planning, sessions can run anywhere from 30-90 minutes. This timeframe will vary from couple to couple, it all depends on the location, time of day and how much fun everyone is having. But I tend not to watch the clock, if everyone is enjoying themselves, the weather is playing my game and I am catching some great shots, I just keep going.
Outdoor sessions are held in the late afternoon-early evening to coincide with the beautiful golden light as the sun goes down with the exact session time varying with each different location and time of year. Sessions are held in a location of your choice, but I have loads of gorgeous places I love to visit and can suggest if you need some help. Gardens and bushland are very popular and are some of my absolute favourite locations to work in, also I love a trip to the beach as often as I can, the sunsetting on the sand is just beautiful! To make it an easy process, I always help families to pick a location that would suit their lifestyle, the options are endless and I travel all over for a good spot so I am sure we can find you something perfect!

To book a session in, I ask for a non-refundable session fee of $200. This fee does not include any products from your session, and covers your time with me on location. After your session you will be given access to a private online gallery of approximately 30-35 images to choose from. I offer a range of beautiful products and digital collections. The digital collections offer your digital images on a beautiful custom made USB, however, if your computer is one of the new fancy ones that does not have a USB drive, images can be made available for download also for easy access to your files. I offer flexible payment plans on all orders of $995 or more and have attached a detailed copy of my pricing for your reference.
I know I have sent you quite an essay to read through Lealie! I feel it is really important for you to have as much information on hand as possible to allow you the ability to make an informed decision when finding the perfect photographer for you and your family. Just think of me as your note taker so you don't need to 🙂 But, if I have missed anything, or you have any further questions, please send them through, or I would be happy to give you a call to have a chat.

Thanks so much again for your consideration Lealie, and congratulations again on your pregnancy! I look forward to hearing from you soon.

At this stage I am just about fully booked for most of May, however I do have some limited availability to work with that I would be happy to offer you. If you do wish to go ahead with a booking, I can send you through some session dates to consider over the coming fortnight.
