Pregnancy Sessions are best between the 7th - 8th month when you have a nice round belly and feel great. I suggest contacting me in the beginning of your second trimester to discuss options and making a booking. Partners and children are always welcome to participate in this session.



Newborn Sessions are recommended when baby is between 8-12 days old. I encourage you to make your Newborn Session booking a month prior to your due date and I suggest you call me within 24 hours of giving birth to re-confirm a date and time for your booking. If you have a scheduled delivery it is recommended to schedule your newborn booking ahead of time. Partners and children are always welcome to participate in this session.


babies, toddlers and family

Babies, toddlers and families are all welcome in the studio, please contact me to discuss further options.


cake smash and bubble bath

Cake Smash and Bubble Bath Sessions are best booked a month prior to baby turning one. A 6" round cake, props and outfits are all inclusive. The Bubble Bath Session is an added feature to the Cake Smash Session.



I have a wide range of clothing for newborn baby boys and girls and I carry little dresses and tutus for girls up to size 12. For little boys, I suggest they dress similar to Dad or in solid clothing. For Pregnancy Sessions I have a beautiful selection of gowns, lace tops and skirts.



Payment is due at time of booking a Session. Credit card, cash and internet banking is available.
