Preparation Guide

Preparation is for a successful and seamless session 

Please note - failure to follow our guidance will not satisfy optimum results


  • Calculate your routine to ensure your baby is fully fed JUST BEFORE YOU LEAVE HOME.  If your baby is not due for a feed, then please gently wake your baby and give baby a lovely warm and relaxing bath.

  • Plan ahead, by using Google or Apple Maps, to calculate the distance between your home and The Studio, now add additional traffic conditions if applicable and set your alarm.

  • Dress your baby in a loose zip up onesie - preferably one size bigger please.  Do not dress your baby in a singlet or any outfit that requires overhead removal.  By removing items over baby's head will in turn wake them up and we want to keep them as sleepy as possible - we want more photos!


Please text Devina on 0450066102 with an estimated time of arrival when you leave home. Siblings/family photos will be photographed first, so ensure your hair and make up is complete.  The address again is 7 Flamingo Lane, Coomera (please park in the driveway on arrival)

Outfit Choices

Family photos are taken, comfortably positioned on my beautiful hand selected rustic lounge set. Therefore, you can wear comfortable shoes and pants. 


We recommend white or natural shirts for dad.


Siblings are to be in white or neutral tops/shirts/dress and cream/beige chinos for boys. 

Ladies, I have over 30 beautiful gowns for you to choose from, a link to these dresses will be sent to you a few weeks before the session.


Please remove your watches for your portraits. 


Hair and Make-Up 

Hair and make-up is not included in your package and we recommend that you keep your make up to a minimal for a beauti­ful natural feel.

Siblings with long hair must have their hair neat and tidy or tied up out of their face. 


NO SHOES REQUIRED for siblings.

**Your session is exclusive to two adults only. Due to limited studio space and session policies, we request that all other friends and relatives stay at home.

Thank you.

Choosing Your Session "Style" 

It is extremely important that I receive your requested poses and theme preference one week prior to your session, (this is on the questionnaire I send you). Planning my studio, props and backdrop solutions require time and effort. 

If you have booked a mini newborn session please select either lifestyle theme or prop theme

If you have booked a full newborn session you are able to have both options 



I can't wait to photograph your newborn baby, any questions or concerns please text, call, email me anytime
