FAQS

 WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO PHOTOGRAPH MY BABY? 

The best time to photograph newborns is between 6 and 10 days old. You will need to book your session well in advance, as soon as you know your due date is an ideal time to book. Newborn sessions can take up to four hours, therefore we only book them Monday to Friday and all newborn sessions start at 10am. We only ever book in one newborn session per day so there is no rushing your baby.

DO YOU WORK ON WEEKENDS?

Unfortunately no, all of our newborn sessions are booked Monday to Friday. Maternity and family can be booked on Weekends in circumstances where a weekday is not an option for families.

WHEN WILL I SEE MY IMAGES ?

Your images will be available online between 2-4 weeks after your session, depending on busy periods. This is when you will choose and order your photographs.

WHERE IS YOUR STUDIO LOCATED?

Our studio is located in Bulli. We are conveniently located near public transport if needed. We are a 5 minute walk from the bus stop and 10 minute walk from the local train station.

DO YOU HAVE QUALIFICATIONS IN PHOTOGRAPHY AND HANDLING NEWBORNS?
Qualifications display a commitment to the craft and offer peace of mind for clients that they are hiring a skilled professional in their field.
I have completed a Certificate IV in Photo Imaging and my Diploma in Photography. I have also invested in workshops and learnt from, and been mentored by, Australia’s top newborn photographers Kelly Brown and Erin Elizabeth. Kelly and Erin are leaders in the newborn photography industry and regularly teach and mentor both in Australia and internationally. I have learnt to pose and handle babies in the correct and most safest manner when conducting my newborn portrait sessions.

WHY ARE PROFESSIONAL PORTRAITS SO EXPENSIVE?
Photographs of your memories and loved ones is a huge, lifelong investment… These moments disappear so quickly and we don’t get them back. High standard, professional portraits freeze these moments in time, allowing families to display them on their walls to look back on and remember those tiny little details in years to come.
The QUALITY of these images is the important part. Like the saying goes… you get what you pay for! High quality work is worth the investment.
I aim to capture timeless images, ones that won’t date over time….. and edit them to the highest standard possible, so in 50 years when those images are being handed down through the generations, they are still going to be A much loved heirloom… Long after the moments were captured, and long after you held your tiny baby close to your heart.

Professional photographers have also invested a lot of time and money into their equipment and learning their craft, so that clients can rest assured they are investing in and receiving a product of the highest standard.

DO YOU USE PROFESSIONAL EQUIPMENT?
Many photographers use an entry-level DSLR camera which have very low resolutions, and unfortunately clients are often completely unaware that they are paying for an inferior product. You must insist your photographer have a full frame DSLR camera. This allows you the freedom to enlarge your photos to larger sizes while maintaining their quality and sharpness.
I use a professional Canon 5D MKiii, which is a full frame DSLR camera offering outstanding quality images, with high resolutions. I also use top of the range lenses.

ARE THE PROPS IN YOUR IMAGES FOR USE OR DO WE BRING OUR OWN?

I supply all the props/wraps/outfits/blankets and bonnets that you see in my images. I have a great selection of coloured wraps and textures in the studio that my clients can go through during their session, and pick out what that they would like to incorporate and use in their images.

HOW DO I BOOK MY SESSION?

We are only open 3 days a week so we encourage all our potential clients to book early to avoid missing out.

You can book your session with us through our online booking calendar located on this page below our pricing and packages. Sessions are booked according to our diary availability. Otherwise feel free to call us to discuss your session and get you booked into our diary.

Thank you so much for your interest in my portrait sessions, we look forward to working with you in the near future if you choose Nerida Louise Photography to photograph this precious memory for you.
