BEFORE YOUR SESSION
All portrait collections include your photography session, password access to an online photo gallery to view your proofs as well as professionally edited high-resolution images supplied on a custom USB. Please Note: No RAW files will be provided to clients under any circumstances. A $50 non-refundable deposit is required upon booking to secure your session and this amount will be deducted from your total, with the remaining balance due prior to your session. All portrait collections are designed for one type of photography session. Should you require a combination of sessions e.g. cake smash and family portraiture, then two session fees will be payable. Please contact us for all bookings and further information.
FOR NEWBORNS: Newborns are best photographed between 5 and 10 days old (or at least under two weeks of age). The best time to schedule a newborn session is aim for one week after your due date. Rest assured that scheduling adjustments can be made if your baby arrives earlier or goes past their due date. All newborn sessions include use of my props, newborn wraps and baby accessories.
DURING YOUR SESSION
Please allow a minimum of 1 hour for all standard portrait sessions and a minimum of 3-4 hours for newborn session.
FOR NEWBORNS: Upon arrival, you will be provided with the time and space to feed your baby as this will help start their sleep cycle for the session. Sessions include a combination of close up shots, prop setups and posing baby on a beanbag and Perfect Posie® for some digital composites. Please Note: Your diet can affect your breastmilk and consequently, your newborn session. To ensure your baby stays settled, please avoid the following foods and beverages for at least 24-48 hours prior to your session: caffeine, cabbage, citrus fruits and juices, onion, peppers, garlic and spices as well as fizzy soft drinks. It is a good idea to bring a spare bottle of expressed milk or formula along to your session to top baby up in between poses.

After your session, a sneak peek of a few images will be uploaded to Amy K Photography's Facebook and Instagram.
