About Your Newborn Session

Newborn sessions take place at Stacy’s home studio in Irymple.  Stacy Wilson was originally a natural light photographer using the beautiful soft morning light, just recently converting to studio lighting for consistent results in her portraiture.

It’s important to book your session early (during your pregnancy) to avoid disappointment. When booking your session date – the newer the baby, the better (as long as your family is feeling ready). Stacy will normally pencil in your due date and then schedule the exact date and time for the session once baby arrives. Newborn sessions are best done within the first 2 weeks upon their arrival, and no later than 3 weeks. So it’s best to try to get all of the details taken care of prior to the birth, since things in that first week can get a bit overwhelming at times.Please remember to try to contact Stacy within 48 hours of your baby’s arrival, whether it be a quick e-mail/text saying ‘our baby’s here’ this can help Stacy arrange availability for your session and give you an opportunity to pick a day for your session.

In the event that your newborn is born a little early and requiring some special care in the nursery, please let Stacy know as premature babies have a leniency toward the two week guideline above which she is more than happy to discuss with you.

It is recommended you allow 2-4 hours for your newborn session, this allows plenty of time for feedings, soothing and a variety of poses and set ups for a unique image gallery. Your session includes Mum & Dad and any siblings if applicable (optional but recommended) as well as feature close-ups i.e. lips, eyelashes etc. Try to avoid any appointments before/after your session so you don’t feel rushed.

Most of the props, hats, wraps that you see are available but always optional, what others may love, you may not. Each session is fully customisable to your taste, your style and your home. If you are looking to create images to compliment your home decor, then together, Stacy will create those portraits. Stacy prides herself on her extensive range of props. Please note that some of the props you see have been supplied by the families, if there is a prop that you see and would like to use, it’s important to check to make sure it is a part of Stacy’s prop collection.
