Newborn Mini Sessions

These newborn mini sessions are for those newborns that are past the 'ideal' under 3 week age or for those who adore newborn baby photographs but don't want the long sessions with props or just simply want to keep a check on the budget.

So what are the differences between a normal newborn session and a newborn mini other than price?


During my regular full newborn sessions we have the luxury of time to create many different set-ups and ideas, using various different props and blanket colours. Also we have the time to feed and settle baby and wait for that deep sleep to achieve lots of those curly sleeping images.

A mini session will last up to 1 hour only. During the 1 hour mini, I will capture 5 specific poses resulting in 5 digital images only. 

 During a one hour mini session, the photos may be sleepy images, or they could be all totally awake images. We will photograph what your baby is doing in that time.

The images are set and will be the same for each newborn mini session. 

These minis will not include any props, headbands, bonnets etc and you do not have the choice to try out or add different poses to the set of 5 advertised poses below. 


The five images are:

1 x timeless black & white parent portrait with a black background. 

 1x black and white portrait of baby in arms.

1 x colour portrait of baby wrapped. 

2 x colour portraits of baby in white vest or semi-wrapped on white/ivory. 


If there is a sibling, one of the above can be swapped for the sibling shot. 



This is the perfect session for those of you that have missed the true 'newborn' phase of up to 3 weeks and will be available to babies up to 12 weeks.


Session take place Monday to Friday at my home in Wellington. Newborn mini sessions can start at either 10am or 12 noon.
