Remember this special time and every precious detail of your baby with beautiful images that you’ll treasure forever!
Here’s a guide on what to expect from your Newborn Photography Experience:-
1. Let’s Chat
I want to get to know you, what you love, what your family is like and what you want from your photoshoot. Newborn Photography has become such a broad genre there are a number of different styles available and I want to know what you love most so that I can ensure you fall in love with your gallery.
- Fine Art Images
- At-Home Photoshoots
- Styled Studio Photoshoots
- What to wear?
- Printing, the Professional Difference
The best time for capturing all the newborn details is between 5 and 9 days. It is possible to capture beautiful images of your baby at any age, but during this short window your baby is still supple and very comfortable with being posed. They also sleep longer at this time giving us a comfortable window for completing a full gallery of images in as little time as possible.
2. Your Photoshoot
Each photoshoot is built around your baby’s needs. Once we have a happy, settled baby then we can begin. I recommend that you bring a dummy and a fresh change of clothes for everyone just in case on the day.
I will always pose your baby safely and with consideration for where they want to be. This means each image is unique and shows your baby’s character.
For the Family Photos I will give some gentle instructions around posing and position you in the best light, and then using prompts which encourage you to interact naturally we will create some beautiful, authentic images together.
Photoshoots can be anywhere between 45 and 180 minutes depending on much time we need to get your baby settled.
3. Your Gallery
Within 7 days of your photoshoot your images will be ready, and this may well be the most exciting part of the entire process! You can opt for an online gallery or I love presenting your images at my studio which gives you an opportunity to see all the professional print products available for yourself. I’m also a great help at picking favourites when you get stuck!
You can expect to see anywhere between 20 and 150 images in your gallery. This depends on how much time we spent together and how the photoshoot played out. I include a variety of expressions so that you’re able to choose the ones that are most natural to you.
Your gallery will have a variety of images captured from different perspectives, in different lighting and with a select few images converted to black and white. My black and white edits are not just a straightforward conversion, each image is hand edited to create a beautiful, high contrast and impactful black and white image.
Digital packages are available in addition to the extensive range of stunning professional print products available.
4. Printing your Artwork
Once you have selected the perfect images and together we have created something truly amazing to showcase on your walls at home, I begin preparing your files and get them off to one of my carefully selected printers all over the world. This process can take 3-4 weeks.
Custom designing of Wall Art Collections or Collage Frames is part of your experience so take advantage of my experience to ensure your final products match your vision.
My print products all carry guarantees of 35 -75 years so you are assured of a quality product that will last a lifetime!
Zina was fantastic!
Her photos are absolutely stunning and we can’t thank her enough for capturing such special family moments. She took the time to get to know our 2 year old and made him feel comfortable, which led to some amazing photos!
There are not enough words to describe how amazing Zina and her photos are! My little baby was super fussy and difficult and Zina had the magic touch with my baby, and was so patient and wonderful.
I will forever cherish the amazing photos, thank you so much Zina!
I highly recommend Zina!!
We’ve had 3 newborn photo shoots within the last 3 years and she’s been absolutely amazing with each one especially this last one capturing 2 toddlers and a newborn together which I swear is near impossible!
