          Pregnancy Session Info

          Every mum to be that has had a photo session with Deanna is delighted that they did it! It may not be something that crosses your mind at the time, but it should! It’s a short period of time in your life that’s so special. Many mums have said to Deanna after their baby is born that they wish they had it done. Don’t be that mum! 🙂

          When is the best time for bump photographs to be taken?  

          We generally suggest that mums schedule the session during the last trimester of the pregnancy, between 30-36 weeks. It’s also nice to include your spouse/partner and your kids in the session.

          How long does a bump photo session take?

          Bump sessions with D Images, whether they are studio photographs or on-locations, will take approx 1 hour.

          Do we need to supply props and outfits for studio sessions?

          We recommend you get a nice white, black and nude bra set for the session. Also any of your favourite outfits you have worn throughout your pregnancy is nice to bring along too. Some mums like to buy personalised gowns and outfits and that is also fine! Deanna also has an extensive range of gorgeous fabrics including lace and tulle that she will wrap your bump in for a soft romantic look.

          Do I need to get my hair and make up done?

          We always suggest to it a nice treat for yourself to look the best when getting your pregnancy portrait taken, so hair and make up is always a nice thing to do for yourself. If you dont have a favourite stylist we can arrange a stylist to come to the studio and do your hair and make up, please contact us for costing details for this service.


          Newborn Sessions

          This is my favourite subject to photograph; how could you not love them! They are only small for such a tiny period of time, then you blink and they are 6 months old! This is what makes newborn photographs so special.

          When is it best to book?

          Please book whilst you’re pregnant, this ensures I can fit you in after your baby arrives. I will reserve a space in the week after you have had your baby to ensure I capture your baby when they are at their littlest! Plus I only take on a limited number of infant shoots a week so I give each client a top quality session.

          When is the best time and age to schedule a newborn session? 

          The optimal time to schedule your newborn session is between 5-16 days old, preferably before the baby is 2 weeks of age. Your little bundle of joy is still very flexible at this age as they are used to being curled up in mum’s belly. You would be surprised how robust they actually are! It is best to contact me during your pregnancy. Your due date can be taken note of and a time frame can be reserved for you. Alternatively if mum or dad contacts me a few days after your tiny tot is born I will do my best to fit you in before your baby is 14 days old.



          What time of day is best and what can we prepare before the session?  

          The best time to photograph your newborn is the time they are most sleepy, the deeper the sleep the better it is as this allows me to pose the bundle of joy without disturbing them from their sleep. Most babies are mid morning or after lunchtime. With the session taking place in your home its best to have your newborn just in a nappy and bundled up in a blanket for warmth before I arrive. Your baby needs to be really well fed before the session starts. Whether your baby is breast or bottle fed, a full belly makes for a happy baby and most important a sleepy baby!!! The more milk the more comatosed they are, making it easier to position them. Because your newborn will be in their birthday suit 🙂 your house needs to be really toasty and warm! I always say, if your too hot your baby is comfortable. I will bring a blow heater for extra warmth.

          Also I suggest you have baby wipes on hand as your baby will not be wearing a nappy for the majority of their session and accidents are possible.

          How long does a photo session take?  

          Newborn sessions generally last 2-2.5 hours and we will take breaks for feedings and cuddles if need be.

          If you have any other questions or are interested in booking a bump or newborn session please email us through our contact page.
