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

Your Hush Photography sessions will be natural, relaxed and fun to create authentic emotive connections between you as a family. Our sessions are never rushed but you can expect the session to last up to 2hrs coverage.  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.

Do you come to us?

Yes! All of our sessions are held in the comfort of your own home or on a chosen location. We do have a range of favourite outdoor locations that we can suggest too.

When is best to book my Newborn Lifestyle 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 we can photograph your pregnancy at anytime. You may wish this to include your announcement, your gender reveal or within your last 6 weeks of pregnancy (this being our most popular). 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

Do you offer a Baby’s First Year Collection?

Our Newborn Lifestyle sessions offer the option of add-on sessions to capture your baby’s whole journey from pregnancy, birth and first year milestones at 6 months – 2 years. View our Pricing page for further details. You may choose these sessions when filling out your Maternity or Newborn Questionnaire.

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.
