Preparation is for a successful & seamless session

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

Please follow instructions

  1. Newborn Sessions start at 9.30 if in my studio
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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 hand selected rustic lounge set. Therefore, i recommend no shoes
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.

What you need to bring?

I try to make this as stress free as possible for parents, all you need to bring is the standard nappy bag with spare nappies, wipes, if baby is bottle feeding bring top up milk as we often need to stop and top up baby throughout the session.

I do like to use a dummy just for the session, this will not confuse baby it is only for an hour or so but helps the sessions run smoothly. If you don’t have any I often have new ones in the studio.

Sometimes the sessions can run up to 3 hours if baby is really not settled . I offer tea, coffee and water and have dairy and non dairy milk options and snacks.

If a sibling is joining us please bring their favourite toys and snacks

When do we purchase the images?

Once the session is complete you are welcome to view the images straight away at the studio or we can arrange a zoom appointment 3-5 days after the session and go through the images together.

Once you have chosen your favourite images payment will be made or a payment plan will be in place. ( please be aware of pricing before the session)

I will begin the editing and ordering process. Please note all orders are final as per the contract.

I accept all major cards either online or over the phone or bank transfer. I offer 0% payment plans also

When & how do I receive my photos?

Your final gallery will be delivered via email link within 14 days of your invoice being paid. This link is sent via email and download instructions are simple.

If any prints/wall arts/albums are ordered I will be in contact once I have revived these usually within 3 weeks of invoice being paid.

I will upload a few photos to my Instagram and Facebook Page on the evening of your session for a sneak peek. You are welcome to tag and share to your social media pages


Devina’s caring and professional nature made it so easy for our newborn’s shoot. She welcomed us into her beautiful (and Covid safe) studio where we could relax while she worked her magic. These precious images she captured will be treasured by our family for a lifetime. We were really happy with the whole process and highly recommend Devina.

Amazing attention to detail and beautiful results. I’m not the best when it comes to having my photo taken and can feel so uncomfortable however Devina makes you feel comfortable and confident the whole time. The service is some of the best I have ever received and she will go above and beyond to make sure you’re happy. A true professional in every sense who takes your every need into account.

Such an amazing photographer! I absolutely loved how hands on and good she was with my newborn. Devina is very friendly and professional. 10/10 would recommend to friends and family.

I was having a hard time finding a photographer for both maternity shoot and newborn shoot as there are many to choose from but I don’t want a session that I feel rushed and just another random client. Lucky enough I found Devina. I feel valued. She was very patient for both the maternity and newborn shoot. My little familiar very relaxed the entire time. She is also very creative to come up with many ideas, looks and poses which are really beautiful and classic, looks that are timeless. In addition, her range of wardrobe for female client is beautiful and has lots to choose from, you need not worry for an outfit change.

Recent did a newborn family photo shoot with Devina. She was so professional and such a pleasure to work with both kids were so comfortable around her. We absolutely loved the images it was really had to pick as they were all so beautiful. I would highly recommend Wild River Photography.
