KWP Studios, Flagstone QLD
How do I arrange a newborn session with KWP Studios?
Your new little bestie will be here before you know it, and waiting until they are here will make life a little stressful if you still haven’t booked in a new born photographer. Newborn Photography sessions are best booked in within the first 14 days of baby’s precious little life, and most of us are booked up months in advance! After this time babies are more awake, are harder to settle and can even develop colic and baby acne.
If you contact me in the first trimester of your pregnancy, we can lock off a tentative booking for you and then lock off a firm date when more information becomes available, or you have baby.
When you arrive home from hospital with your brand new baby you can contact us to arrange a suitable time and day for your session.
We offer studio sessions in the beautiful brand new Flagstone Studio, or for Mums that aren’t up to leaving home so early in babies life, or for any reason cannot leave home, we now offer in home Newborn Lifestyle Sessions.
Sessions take place ideally in the morning around 9:30am as I have found that this is the time that baby is usually most settled and happiest and the light indoors is usually the creamiest.
How do I prepare for a newborn session?
Our fully equipped new studio has everything for your session ready to go, including light refreshments, nappies, wipes, wraps, blankets, headbands and bonnets, outfits and backdrops. All you need to bring is a smile and babies milk!
The studio is the size of a whole house and has plenty of room for you to relax and watch the 55″ TV and binge your favourite Netflix, Stan or Disney Plus shows, while your new little best friend has their newborn photography experience.
We even have a coffee machine and supply snacks so you will feel right at home the whole time you are here!
What kinds of props and equipment do you provide?
While I do supply all props, blankets, wraps etc. but you are more than welcome to bring along something sentimental that you would like included in your session, after all, these images are for you to treasure for all time and live proudly on your walls! We have every different type of prop, wrap, blanket and headband in nearly every colour of the rainbow, but if we don’t have it, we can work with you before the shoot and try and source it before you come in!
What does a newborn session with KWP Studios look like?
A newborn session at KWP Studios starts at around 9:30am in our gorgeous massive Flagstone Studio. Before you arrive, Kylie has been in the studio for hours, giving the whole space a deep clean, setting up all the props that you have requested, getting milk for the coffee machine and snacks out ready and generally making sure the whole space is welcoming, safe and ready for you.
Upon arrival we have a quick chat and get straight into photographing you all as a family, while everyone is still looking their 100% best. After the family is complete, we focus on baby and making sure all the different set ups that are most important to the family are photographed, professionally and as beautifully as possible.
Because of the sheer size of the studio, and the different rooms that are all utilised in one session, there is no waiting for changing over props and backdrops. Everything is set up and ready for you before you arrive, minimising the time you need to spend at your session.
What kind of packages or products are available?
KWP Studios is a full service Professional Photography Studio, and we pride ourselves on our exceptional quality products that we are able to source locally and supply to our clients. All products come with industry leading warranties, some up to 75 years!
Packages start at $450 and go to $1990 but current pricing and our comprehensive pre-shoot consultations will leave you confident in your decisions and without any surprises after your images arrive.
A word from Kylie …
“Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.”
— Don McCullin
Ever since I picked up a camera 9 years ago, I knew it was my heart song. I have enjoyed so much being able to capture my own family and I feel blessed to be able to capture those memories for other families as well, for during this journey, you invite me along with you.
