At Coffee+Hops, we are honoured to be a part of capturing the most magical moments in peoples' lives.  Becoming a parent is certainly one of those moments.  Our job in documenting this special time goes far beyond just snapping a few shots of your new family member; we aim to capture this unique time and the emotions that go along with it.  The photos from your session will become a family treasure to be enjoyed for generations to come.

Whether you want to document your pregnancy, the arrival of bub, special moments throughout their first 12 months, or a cake smash to celebrate their first birthday; we have a package to suit you.

Have Questions?

 
 

WHERE WILL YOU TAKE THE PHOTOS?

Maternity, Milestone & Cake Smash Sessions

I will take photos anywhere you want to go in the Mackay region.  The beach, botanic gardens, your home, rural areas, and in the city heart, are all great places.  Pick a place where you and your family will be most comfortable, and of course set the backdrop for the type of photos you want.  Ideally if dogs are involved, it will be somewhere they have been to a number of times before.  If cats are involved, I highly recommended having the photos taken at home.

Newborn Sessions

We will come to your home.

WHEN SHOULD WE DO THE MATERNITY SESSION?

We recommend anywhere from 30-36 weeks.  Ideally, you want to have a bit of a belly, but not be overly uncomfortable.  If you have been advised that you may 'go early', we recommend booking earlier rather than later.

WHEN DOES THE NEWBORN SESSION HAPPEN?

Ideally, newborn sessions are within 7-10 days after they are born.  This is the sweet spot in terms of them, and you, being settled.  If you have booked with us prior to the birth, we will ask you to put us on the notification list.  We will then be in touch a few days later to see how you are going, and set a possible session date and time.  If you have already had bub, don't worry, get in contact with us (using the 'Let's Do This' button above), and we will work out a possible session date for you. 

WHEN DO THE MILESTONE SESSIONS HAPPEN?

Milestone sessions are meant to capture the significant changes in your bub over their first 12 months.  The aim is to have a session when they are 3, 6, 9 and 12 months old.  We understand that things may not work exactly to plan, and life gets in the way, but we will try and stick as closely to these as possible.

If you would prefer to use the 3 month session for family photos at your baby's christening, then we are totally open to this type of arrangement.

HOW LONG DOES A NEWBORN SESSION TAKE?

This all depends on bub.  The session will be a minimum of 90 minutes, however, we do allow up to 3 hours, in case baby is fussy, and things just aren't going to plan.

CAN MY PET/S BE IN THE PHOTOS?

Oh my goodness, YES!  We highly encourage all family members to be in the photos.  For newborn sessions, where you may not have had the time to fully introduce bub to the pets, we have some tricks which mean you still get images of the whole family, but they don't have to be in close proximity.

 

 

lifestyle or POSED?

In newborn photography there tends to be two styles, lifestyle and posed.

Lifestyle images are candid, generally unposed, and artistically capture things just as they are; real moments frozen in time.  They may include shots of parents, siblings, and even the family pet.  These types of images are perfect for fussy babies who have difficulty falling asleep.

Posed images take a bit more time, a few more props, and a lot more cooperation from baby.  The extra elbow grease is worth it though.  We will bring an assortment of baskets, background, wraps and blankets just for these types of images.

Good news!  You don't have to choose.  During one of our newborn sessions we will try and get a mix of both styles.

I DON'T WANT MY IMAGES SHARED ON SOCIAL MEDIA, IS THAT OK?

Yes!  As always, if you do not want images of yourself, or your family, shared on social media, you have every right to let me know that, and I respect your decision.

WHEN DO I HAVE TO PAY FOR THE SESSION?

We do not send you an invoice until after each session.  As soon as you forward payment, and your images are edited, we will upload the images to your gallery, and forward you an email with the details.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET MY IMAGES?

Your images are uploaded a maximum of 4 weeks after your session.

WHY SPEND THIS MUCH MONEY?

Why not just have a relative with a digital SLR take your newborn's first photographs?  While it is ultimately up to you to decide how you'd like your baby's first year of life documented, we believe hiring an experienced professional is the ideal way to get wonderful results.

CAN WE ORDER CANVASES, PRINTS AND ALBUMS FROM OUR SESSION?

Yes!  When we email you the gallery, we also let you know of the print services we can provide.  As you have a full print release of your images, you can take them anywhere you like to have printed yourself, but we do provide the option for high quality products, including canvases, prints and albums.

WHY YOU?

If you want someone down to earth, who loves a good laugh, and someone who is willing to go the extra mile to get that shot (with a good injection of patience), then I'm your girl.
