Just Hatched | fresh 48 session.

We all know how fast a baby changes,  Just hatched sessions are done in the first 48 hours after birth  ( sometimes even in the hour straight after. )  Usually done in the hospital.  They can capture sibling meetings for the first time,  Just mum and dad time or first time getting dressed and ready to meet the world.   These sessions are best done in the morning before lots of visitors.


Sessions are  from  $450  ( or $250 when booked with a maternity or newborn session )


Why should  I book this session and what makes this different from a studio session or in home session?

No posing,  ( I may suggest photo opportunities  or give you a little direction but it’s mainly about bonding and capturing the newsiest of your baby)

Time length,  this a quick session to give high-quality images of you and your babies first few days.

It’s a perfect add on to Maternity or newborn session  If you choose not to get your birth captured this is the next best option.

How long is the session?

usually 30 minutes I don’t want to tire you or baby out. Or take up precious family time,  I can usually get all that is needed with that time allotment.

How many images do I get?

Usually between  15 and 30 (sometimes more)

What if I don’t stay in hospital or I have had a home birth?

You can still have a session in your home you can choose to either do a  mini lifestyle baby session (30min)   or upgrade to a full lifestyle session (1 and a half hours).
