What can I expect when having a session with Hush Photography?

Your session with Hush Photography is a natural unfolding of your own custom experience where your session is created around the unique beauty that is your family. Our sessions are very natural, relaxed and fun to create authentic emotive connections between you as a family. Our sessions are never rushed. There is time for snacks and cuddles for little ones so we work with these important needs in mind. I’ll be the one interacting with your little ones, making a laugh of myself or creating games for you to connect with each other. I shoot at the best time of day for the natural light around the session you choose.

When is best to book my newborn session? 

The best time to contact us to book your newborn session is whilst you are still pregnant. I believe your whole pregnancy journey is a miracle and can photograph your pregnancy at anytime, your announcement, your reveal or within your last 6 weeks of pregnancy are all popular times. I will pencil in your baby’s due date for your newborn session and once your baby is born, we will then choose a time within your baby’s first 2 weeks for your newborn lifestyle session. After 2 weeks we find that your baby may experience colic, reflux or baby acne may begin to settle in however, we are flexible with newborn sessions up to 12 weeks. o, photography, newbornernity photography, baby, belly, bump, bio, photography, newborn photography, newborn, child, child photography, family, family ph

What if we are sick on the day?

If you or your children are ill for the session, your date may be postponed. We ask that you let us know as soon as possible so that we can make further dates available for a follow up session. Since I work closely with newborns, it is appreciated that all cases of illness be discussed prior to our session taking place.

What if it is raining?

If you have a planned outdoor session, it is best that we postpone the session to a more suitable time.

Do you photograph our baby’s first year milestones?

Yes! The best stages we recommend after your newborn session is when your baby is sitting around 7-9mths and your baby’s 1st birthday. We have a sweet spot for baby’s first birthday parties and capturing all the details you have poured into celebrating the success of the first year! Please let us know so we can bundle a package for you with your newborn session.

When will I see my photos?

Your gallery images will be carefully selected and edited at the photographers discretion. Our style is focused on natural, real life images so if you require extra retouching of images an extra cost applies at your request. Within 72hrs of our session, I will send you a sneak peek of a couple of edited images. No more than 3 weeks after our session, you will receive a password protected online slideshow of your images. All paid accounts will have instant download of your high resolution images to share immediately. You will choose some favourites for me to print and within 2 weeks, your Boutique Linen Folio with wooden USB will be on its way.

Please allow additional 4 weeks for delivery of albums.


Any further questions, please shoot me an email, I’m happy to help!
