As a portrait photographer i am extremely passionate about my work and professional newborn photography. It is something that families invest in, and to them it is a lifelong investment. Something they can keep for generations and keep looking back on over the years, and eventually, hand down to their kids, their grandkids and so on.
This was part of my reason to change up my packages. I was providing online galleries for parents to view, but then it occurred to me ‘Are they viewing my work at its best? How it is meant to look? Is all my hours of editing and slaving away at the computer ensuring their images are perfect being seen as it is on my monitor? No, it wasn’t.
Due to the low res files that i have to upload onto the website, there was at times banding across my images, parents were viewing on mobile phones and monitors that aren’t professionally colour calibrated, therefore the colour wasn’t a true representation of my work.
I want my clients to view, touch and feel how beautiful their images are when printed at a professional standard. So they can choose and make decisions based on ‘what they see, is what they will get.’ The amount of money clients spend for professional photography, they deserve that! I want to lift the level of customer service clients receive so that their experience is one to remember.
Beautiful, personal newborn photography sessions with Nerida Louise Photography, an exclusive experience where we cater our packages to each individual client.
We have had such an enormous, positive reaction to our new pricing format that we thought we would write a little blog to say thanks! We are really feeling the love. I am very excited to be offering this exclusive experience to my clients, it is a wonderful way to work more closely with you on what you want from your time with us. With these packages, we also have some new and exquisite products on offer which can be viewed in our studio.
To book your session or for further information on our sessions, please visit our website. We look forward to meeting all our new clients in the near future 🙂
This is a quick update to notify everyone that as of next week our pricing and package structure will be changing.
We will be offering our sessions with a session fee and packages purchased after your session when you can view your finished portraits. I want to work with you, my clients to build a package that is suitable for you, to ensure that what you purchase is the package and products that is right and what YOU want.
Your session fee will cover a complimentary pre-consultation (in person or via phone/email), reserved time in our studio just for you for your session, professional photography on the day, access to our huge range of props wraps and outfits, your personal viewing session, and access to our stunning boutique products.
We can then work together to build an exclusive package suitable for you and your family, what you want to invest and purchase that best suits your needs. Creating your own collection allows you to select what is most important to you and an amount that you’re comfortable with. We will help guide you through your own personal experience with us from start to finish. From planning your session, choosing your props colours and set ups, through to the selection process, helping you build your own personal collection of stunning portraits and beautiful products which you will be able to cherish for a life-time.
The session fee will not include any digital images or products, the session fee will cover the session itself, use of our gowns, props, and studio. You will then be able to select your own collection that suits you at your viewing session scheduled 2-3 weeks after your shoot (times vary depending on busy periods). Upon booking we can send pricing and product selections so clients get a feel for what they want to spend, there are no hidden secrets. We just want to help our clients build an exclusive product just for them.
We are so excited and honoured to be able to offer this premium service to our clients, so that you too can enjoy stunning portraits of you and your family.
Creating beautiful newborn sessions for families in the Illawarra and Sydney is my specialty and a job i am very passionate about 🙂
Today i finalised this amazing newborn session for a beautiful family. This gallery will be a very much loved possession from Mum and Dad.
It was such a pleasure to meet this family. As soon as they walked into the studio i knew this session was going to roll beautifully with a lot of chitter chatter.
I hope you enjoy a little insight into master Kysen’s newborn session.

A few gorgeous newborn portraits from a recent studio session. What an absolute pleasure it was to capture this family and their first moments with their new little man. Oh and not to mention their bubba was an absolute star, whom really didn’t like his hands being moved or touched 🙂 But i won!
When Mum received the entire gallery of her newborn portraits, her response had me feeling so emotional and a little teary. To be able to deliver this feeling to parents is nothing short of a privilege for me.
Sharing another gorgeous baby portraits session from last week. How super, super cute is this little sweetheart? She was such a superstar on the day for me as well. Capturing these beautiful first moments in a baby’s life is an amazing job, and i thank my lucky stars every day that i get to create such memories for parents 🙂
I am booked out for the entire coming week, so please if you are after a newborn session with Nerida Louise Photography, please don’t leave booking until the last minute as i can’t guarantee a spot in my diary for late bookings.

Professional newborn photography is a massive decision. It is something that i am extremely passionate about educating people in as it is a fleeting moment in a families life.
It is also imperative that you put your newborn baby in safe, qualified hands. That i can not stress enough.
I was chatting to a client recently and in that discussion the client told me that the newborn images they had done of their eldest daughter there was only one image that they liked or would print from the entire gallery, which was extremely disappointing.
My heart broke for the couple, that was a special moment and memories for them.
So, it is my mission now to educate everyone on booking with a professional to ensure that what you get is quality. You are investing in a lifelong memory, not a phone or an Ipad that will last 2 years, this is something that will last you decades if you spend properly 🙂
The main things i tell people to look for when booking are;
- A portfolio that has a consistent quality of images. With this i mean each image is of a high standard.
- Variety. A gallery that shows a variety of different poses, set ups, lighting or style. You want to see that the photographer is capable of more then one style or setup; for example on the beanbag posing and in props.
- Testimonials. This part of their website is crucial. How have other clients responded to working with this photographer?
- Qualifications. This isn’t always necessary, but it helps to know that the photographer has passion and dedication toward what they do. Especially when it comes to handling and posing babies. Have they learnt how to correctly work with newborns?
I can not stress enough the importance of booking with a professional. Try not to shop for cheap when it comes to photographing your baby, as cheap is never best.
I hope i have helped in some way on your search for your perfect newborn photographer. Please if you have any questions about booking in for professional newborn photography, i am always open to chat and help guide you. Even if you are not booking with me.
It is always good to ask questions as your baby and these memories are so precious.
