It matters to me that you receive as many images from your session as possible. I do not spend a great deal of time culling the images to try and pick out only the best ones. What that means to you is that you will receive the majority of the images taken at your session, minus misfires, duplicates, and the really really awkward ones :). I will leave that tough decision up to you to decide which images are your favourites. After all, you know your child/family better than I do, and I would not like for you to miss out choosing from those precious expressions unique to you or your family.

The final number of images you receive is totally dependent on each individual shoot. The average range is approximately 50 to 70 images per session. If your baby is a relaxed sleeping superstar, you could expect more images from your session than say if your cute little bundle is a bit restless.

But no matter how your baby feels on the day, I will do my best to achieve a wide variety of images that you may look back on and enjoy for years to come.

All images are delivered to you at the highest resolution with a basic edit included. This includes a colour and density balance plus background cleanups. All digital images are ready for you to take away and print yourselves.

Depending on your package, you then get to choose a set number of images for custom natural hand edits. This means your baby’s flakes, spots, scratches and uneven skin tones are removed, subtle skin smoothing as well as background and colour tweaking, noise reduction and sharpening if needed and ready for print. These images look very natural but polished and include black and white versions as well as if you wish. 

If you would like additional hand edit retouching on a few more extra images than the number that’s included in your package, these can be purchased at $25 per image. Print packages and canvases can also be ordered from me also if you wish. 

My pricing is all inclusive for any of my sessions including newborns, babies and maternity. This means that I photograph your session, do a basic edit all of your images, and upload them into a private online gallery for you to view. All at no cost or risk to you. My work is guaranteed and there is no obligation to buy any images if you simply do not love them. Your deposit will be refunded with no questions asked if you are not satisfied with your gallery images. This is my guarantee to you that you will not be out of pocket for photos that you would rather not have.

Please be aware I do go through periods of being rather busy and as such, I cannot guarantee last minute bookings. To avoid disappointment, if you wish to go ahead and book a session with me, please do so early on in your pregnancy.

Session availability hours/days: Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 10.30am onwards. 
I am happy to do weekend sessions when I have availability however they are only available for location and special events.
If you can only do weekends, it is recommended you discuss this with me before booking your session to ensure I have upcoming availability. 
A $50 weekend surcharge applies to all weekend sessions.

 

$275 Maternity Sessions (1 hour)

Pregnancy photos maternity photography sessions

Maternity sessions are best done between 28 to 36 weeks.

Proofs are available for viewing in a private password protected gallery approximately 3 to 7 days after your session.

Deposit to secure your session: $50 (deducted from your final order at checkout)

NEWBORN PRICING

Newborn sessions are best conducted 6 to 14 days after your baby’s birth, however, newborn sessions can be conducted up to 6 weeks of age but please bear in mind, the older newborns are when they come in to be photographed, the harder it can become for them to fall into a deep sleep, plus they become less flexible and less curly.  Sessions can be done in my home studio or alternatively, I can come to you and set up in your home. I provide all props, blankets and backdrops needed for the session. All you need to bring is baby, nappies, baby wipes and food :).

My preferred style of newborn photography is the minimalist natural look. Just simple, natural, beautiful photos of your baby nude or wrapped. I do have a small range of cute hats and clothing props for clients that love that look to incorporate into the session but my focus is on capturing your baby as is. I never force a baby into an unnatural position and am aware and advise all clients booking with me that not all babies can perform certain poses. If at any time I feel your baby is not comfortable in any particular position, I will move on and place them where they feel more comfortable.

Proofs are available for viewing in a private password protected gallery approximately 3 to 7 days after your session. The deposit is payable at the time of booking your session.

 

 

$275 Mini Newborn Session (1 hour)

Mini Newborn Session

Includes all edited images you see in your gallery plus an additional 10 retouched images of babys skin if desired. My natural style is featuring baby on a plain background with nothing but your baby including wraps and/or nude. Your little bundle of joy may be sleeping or awake and I take into consideration his/her mood at the time to determine what style of poses would fit best at that particular moment. 

All edited high-resolution digital images of baby including a choice of 2 background colours if time allows. Depending on baby’s mood on arrival, photos may be taken of baby awake and unposed, although I do my best to get them into a sleep for the sleepy shots. One hour mini sessions are ideal for parents who just want some beautiful natural shots of their baby as is and is not too concerned if baby is not keen on being asleep for their session.

Parents and sibling shots can be included although the focus will remain on the baby. Mini sessions are only available at my home studio in Ellenbrook. If you’d like me to come to you, please look at my Simple, Full or Lifestyle newborn sessions

MILESTONE SESSIONS (Baby’s First Year)

$80 per Session (30 minutes)

Available for all my newborn clients only. This session is a quick 30 minute session to capture baby’s milestones at approximately 3 months, 6 months and 12 months. Each stage brings a new achievement for baby from the cute chubby smiling 3-month-old on their tummy and back, moving on to the sitting sturdy 6-month-old with plenty of character to finally the standing, independent (and so very proud) 12-month-old. You would receive all images captured in the 30 minute session delivered via digital download after each milestone shoot and after the final 12-month-old session you will also receive a first-year digital collage of your favourite image from each session (including newborn). Babies change so much in the first year, this is a fantastic and affordable way to showcase your growing baby with memorable professional photography you can proudly display on your walls or as a photo book. 

These sessions are done in my Ellenbrook studio only. Sorry, I am unavailable to travel for these sessions.

 

 

$420 Lifestyle Newborn Sessions (Up to 2 hours)

Lifestyle newborn photo session

For those wanting a much more relaxed style of photography. These sessions are done in your own home and all I bring is my camera and a small basket of props/wraps. Baby is generally photographed as they are in their own environment awake or asleep with the focus on storytelling and capturing the relationship between baby, parents and older siblings. Your home need not be perfectly tidy, after all, I understand bringing a new baby home can be quite challenging enough without having to worry about cleaning for a photographers visit :). I mainly focus on shooting sessions in the baby’s nursery, the master bedroom and a couch or two in the living room so a light declutter of those areas is all that’s needed. Of course, if you would like to showcase more areas of your home, this is perfectly fine also.  The benefit of this style of photography is that your images will be unique to you, with your own home as a backdrop, nothing could be more individual than a lifestyle newborn session. As a great portion of the session is not spent waiting for baby to go into a deep sleep, a typical lifestyle session gallery would include approximately 100 lightly edited images taken from the day and can include close up nursery decor and toys, feeding, nappy changing, play and nap time, family shots as well as individual images of baby.

Booking fee to secure your session: $50 (deducted from your final order at checkout)

Location Fee: add $25 (within 30 min radius of Ellenbrook) to $50 (outside 30 minute radius of Ellenbrook). 

All session images are delivered via digital download (images on USB: additional $15).

Parents and sibling shots can be included. Proofs are available for viewing in a private password protected gallery approximately 7 days after your session. Gallery contains approximately 30 plus naturally edited images. The booking fee is payable at the time of booking your session.

Deposit to secure your session: $50 (deducted from your final order at checkout)

All mini location sessions are held at my favourite spots at specific times  around Ellenbrook to ensure optimal lighting conditions. (up to 6 family members – immediate family only – extended family requires a full general session).

For Maternity, Families and Children.

Before booking a session involving younger children please consider their personality. Some children are very shy and a shorter session may not be enough time for them to warm up and feel comfortable. For very shy children, you may want to consider a one-hour general session instead.

Linda Hewell Portrait Photography Session Terms and Conditions:

  • A payment of a $50 deposit confirms our booking for a photography session. My session will be tentatively held for 5 days after receiving the online booking form. If, after 5 days, I do not respond or settle the booking fee within this timeframe, my session may be given to another booking.
  • I agree to pay the remaining balance of my selected package prior to or on the day of the session.
  • I understand that the standard turn around for processed images and digital images available to view online is approximately3 to 7 days after the session date. This may occasionally be extended due to seasonal demand.
  • Sessions may be rescheduled in the event of illness or unsuitable weather.
  • I am aware that copyright remains with Linda Hewell Photography and my images may appear on the photographers’ portfolio, online or in print form. I acknowledge though that I do have the right to request that certain or no images taken from my session be used in any form, and this will be expressed in writing via email within 5 days of viewing my gallery.
  • I understand that full usage and reprinting of images is permitted upon full payment to Linda Hewell Photography. I agree that all images supplied cannot be used for any commercial purpose and are strictly for personal use only.

Illness policy

As most of my sessions are spent around tiny newborn babies who have yet to build up any immunities, if I am sick in any way, I will reschedule your session to another day or even another week. Please be aware of this when booking. If this occurs and you cannot wait to have your session postponed, I am more than happy to refund your booking deposit, so you may find another photographer. I will not put your baby at risk. A mild symptom for adults can be very severe for a newborn baby.

Likewise, if you have a session booked with me and you or another member of your family are sick, please do contact me to reschedule for another day. I do not charge any cancellation or rescheduling fees, and I would much rather you call me an hour before your session to reschedule. Of course, the earlier you can contact me to reschedule the better 🙂
