Newborn Frequently Asked Questions

WHY CHOOSE LiMia Photography?
 I have my own complete studio setup with years of experience in the Newborn Photography Industry.
 
 HOW DOES BOOKING A NEWBORN SESSION WORK ESPECIALLY WITH REGARDS TO CHOOSING A DATE ?
 
We all know babies make their appearance on their own time so don't worry if bub is early or late.
When selecting a date on our online calendar you will select your EDD or the first available date closes to your EDD (estimate due date). Once baby has arrived you need to contact me with 48 hours so we can relook the date and see if we need to change it.
​Limited spaces are available each month for Newborn Sessions. We recommend booking your session as soon possible because dates fill up fast!
 
 WHAT IS THE BEST AGE FOR NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY?
 
We aim to photograph your baby between 5-21 days old. As we take a limited number of bookings each month it is important to make a booking as early as possible – so please contact us once you know your due date. Newborn sessions are available Monday to Friday and start at 9am
 
 CAN I PICK THE COLORS AND SETUPS FOR MY NEWBORN SESSION?
 
Most of the time Parents leave it up to my creativity however you are more than welcome to browse my Facebook page and let me know if their is anything specific you would like for your newborn session.
  
​HOW MANY OUTFITS CAN THE BABY BE CHANGED INTO DURING THE SESSION?​​
 
All babies differ, on the day of the session we will discuss how sensitive your baby is to touch and how comfortable they are with getting dressed and undressed.
This will determine if we will do outfits , wrapped poses or naked poses.
  
HOW MANY SETUPS DO YOU DO FOR NEWBORN?
 
We typically do 3 - 4 setups , this will be a combination of wrapped poses , naked poses , prop poses and beanbag poses.
As previously mentioned all babies differ some like certain poses and some babies not so much.
For this reason I always tell parents not to expect too much and have baby lead the session on the day.
  
DO I NEED TO BRING MY OWN OUTFITS, PROPS AND ACCESSORIES FOR BABY
 
No of course not, I have a studio full of props and accessories needed for the session. If you do have anythings special that you like to incorporate in your session please let me know prior to the session so we can discuss and plan how we will use the item if possible.
CAN WE HAVE OUR SESSION ON THE WEEKEND?
Newborn sessions are strictly done Monday - Friday and start at 09:00 am.
CAN GRANDPARENTS/FRIENDS/NANNIES OR OTHER RELATIVES COME TO THE SESSION? AND CAN THEY HAVE PHOTOS TOO?
Unfortunately not I'm sorry. Your session is exclusive to TWO adults only. Due to limited studio space and session policies, we request that all other friends and relatives stay at home. The session is for Mum and Dad of the baby only (and siblings of the baby if any) I don't do other generation photos during a newborn shoot.
HOW LONG DOES THE SESSION TAKE?
An average newborn session takes 3-4 hours however your baby will not be rushed if they need a little more time! There will be plenty of opportunity for comforting and milk when needed.
