Baby and Family photography can be done in my natural light studio, or on location around Newcastle and the surrounds. Depending on the location you would like for your backdrop, we will work together in determining what works best for you. I have lots of location suggestions, but feel free to suggest a particular spot you have in mind!
The next best time to photograph babies if you missed the newborn session is 3 months old! Otherwise I recommend waiting to photography your baby between 6-8 months of age as this is when babies hit some really exciting milestones such as sitting up, which gives us more flexibility and posing options for you session.
Normally Baby Photography is scheduled around nap time so I am very flexible to your routine. Our goal is to get your baby when they are at their happiest and not approaching sleep time!
For Family Photography we don’t photograph around noon because the sun is too harsh at this time for photography. This means that afternoon sessions typically begin 2 hours before sunset – anywhere between 4pm and 6pm, depending on the time of year. Morning sessions start between 7am and 8am.
Yes, all props are included in the session. If their are any particular props you like or have seen on my site just let me know. You are also welcome to bring any keepsakes or heirlooms along to the session.
I work very closely with my clients regarding wardrobe selection and offer any guidance if needed.
Your images from your session will be presented on a custom USB along with any prints included in the packages, normally around 1 week after.
As part of Kylie James Photography point of difference, light refreshments are provided whilst viewing and choosing additional print images or products that you love!
Yes, I use a colour calibrated digital workflow and liaise closely with a professional printer to ensure your prints are of the finest quality.
Not only can a poor printing job reflect badly on my work, but it also diminishes the impact of your professional photographs which you have paid good money for.
Print prices and other products are displayed when you collect the images.
Styling makes the world of difference for photography. I like to keep colours to earthy and neutral tones to achieve the light and airy look to my images.
Everyone should feel comfortable, but to help achieve a better quality group photograph, it is necessary to coordinate colours (tops and bottoms) and fabric styles across your family group.Solid tones without flashy prints or graphics work best. I will work very closely with clients to help achieve the perfect look.
If you wear make-up, try wearing it a little darker than normal as it tends to highlight your face (lipstick or lip gloss is also great!).
For newborn studio shoots where other members will be involved, the goal is to limit distracting elements in the photograph so try to avoid wearing bulky jewellery, rings, watches and plunging necklines.
Add Professional make-up to any Photography Session for that extra touch. Our Make-up artist are very talented and will make you look and feel amazing!
