Melbourne Photographer
 

 

Package cost - $280, includes 25min session & 5 digital images downloadable.

A $50 non-refundable session booking fee is required to book your session/time slot with the remainder of the package $230 to be paid on the day of your session.

One family only per session.

Strictly 25 minute session.

 

 


 

What to wear

  • This is totally up to you.  You don’t necessarily need to be all matching in identical outfits.  Mix it up a little with textures too but stick to your colour palette.  You could go full Christmassy with themed outfits or matching pyjamas. 
  • No logos.  You want your images to be timeless.
  • As it is a 25 minute session we don’t have time for big outfit changes.  If you did want to change into a Christmas outfit or PJs for a shot, you can do this but please note that you eat into your 25 minutes so that is entirely up to you and your session.
  • Accessories – Please bring hats, headbands, etc to the studio.
  • You can find lots of things at Best & Less, Kmart & Target.

 

A few more tips:

  • Clean your children’s faces (eyes, nose, mouth) I have wipes in the studio for you to use too.
  • Fingernails, hair cleaned and cut.  I will not be editing special requests such as fixing chipped nail polish or fly away hair during Xmas Minis.
  • Remove all hair ties or kids watches before the shoot to ensure no marks are there. I cannot edit out hair ties or watches.
  • Mums & Dads, don’t forget about yourselves!!  Do your hair and make up before the session.

 

 

Location – Plan ahead of time and use Google Maps to determine how long it may take to arrive at the studio. Also take into consideration any traffic that may affect travel time before your Christmas mini session.

 

Arrive on time Your assistance with arriving on time is so important for a successful day.  Please also be dressed and ready to photograph. 

 

Images – Christmas mini sessions and run for 25 minutes maximum to provide you with the best 5 images.  Sometimes, they can be less than 25 minutes, don’t freak out, it’s less because you guys have been awesome and nailed every pose! 

 

No mobiles During the session you are not permitted to take any pictures with your mobile phone while I am shooting.  It is a quick session and this will distract children and make them look away.  Do not stress, I will be providing you with professional images.   At the end of the session if we have time, you’re more than welcome to do a behind the scenes videos for social media.

 

Editing – All images edits are final.  No refunds or re-shoots.  Any additional editing requests are priced as an additional service.  Session fee covers your time slot and is not refundable due to misbehaved children/poor outcomes.

 

Additional images – $45 per image
 

Viewing Gallery – Your gallery will be ready to view 1 week after your session date.
 

Cancellations – must be minimum 24hrs notice, max 2 session time changed permitted before session fee forfeited.

Melbourne Cake Smash Photographer - Renee V Photography https://www.reneevphotography.com.au/blog/2022/9/renee-v-photography---melbourne-cake-smash-photographer---izaacs-smash-cake-splash Meet Izaac

Melbourne Cake Smash Photographer

 

 

Izaac came in for his Cake Smash & Splash at 11months.

He absolutely LOVED his cake!  He got right into it, no hands needed!!!

 

 

Bath time is always FUN! 

The bath is brought out after Bub has finished with the cake, this is a great opportunity for Bub to reset and try something new!

 

One of the best parts of the bath is when babies realise they can splash as much as they want - its even encouraged!


 

 

 

Happy 1st Birthday Izaac!  We loved being able to capture your big milestone!

Melbourne Newborn Photographer

 

Fleuris7 days new

 

Baby Fleuris, 7 days new, was such a beautiful dream baby, so many smiles for her session!   She loved being wrapped up nice and cozy, as most babies do.

 

 

Big sister was so adorable with her and so gentle.  

 

I always include family photos in all my newborn sessions because I love the context it gives of this moment in time for my clients.

 

 

Thank you to this beautiful family for trusting me with your most precious baby!   

 

 

If you'd like to book a Newborn Session with me, please click here and I'll get in touch with you as soon as possible.  Most of my clients book several months in advance of their due date, as I only take a limited amount per month.  I look forward to hearing from you!

A Newborn Photoshoot with Renee V Photography - Melbourne Newborn Photographer https://www.reneevphotography.com.au/blog/2022/2/a-newborn-photoshoot-with-renee-v-photography  

 

 

A Newborn Photoshoot with Renee V Photography

what to expect......

 

 

When should I book?

So your having a baby!  Such exciting times.... as soon as your little one arrives every second of your day will be filled with baby's undivided attention, including hours of just sitting and watching them sleep, unable to take your eyes off your precious little blessing you have created.  Before you know it they will be 3 weeks old and you'll notice so many changes, for many new parents this is the time when they think  about booking for a a Newborn photo shoot.  Unfortunately this can often be too late as sessions ideally take place between 4-12 days old.  I will always do my best to accommodate late bookings but this is not always possible.   They will never be so curled up like they were when they were indies you, or their tiny feet all wrinkled and new.......

This is why I always try to encourage parents to be to get in touch whilst they are still pregnancy.  Any time after your 20 week scan is perfect.  When we make a booking I pencil in your due date and this is flexible as we never really know when baby will arrive, with the exception on a planned c-section.  I limit the number of bookings I take per month to ensure that we will always be able to find a suitable date for your session when baby is between 4-12 days (ideally).

 

Your photo shoot?

Baby has arrived and we have agreed on a date for your session.  I will send you a preparation guide for ou to read and help prepare you for the day.  Newborn babies are very unpredictable so despite your best laid plans, there is every chance that they have gone out the window...

My newborn sessions are always baby-led and there is always plenty of time for feeding, changing and soothing when need be.  They normally last up to 2hours. 

When you arrive at my studio, I will start with wrapping them  for photos of them on either my beanbag or flokati, to them swaddled up nice and tight feels like being cuddled so it is a great way to get them into a nice deep sleep, once they are in a very deep sleep I can start to remove the swaddling so that I can capture those tiny hands and feet. 

The studio will be really nice and warm so that baby will stay happily asleep.

 

 

If at any point baby is awake but content and happy I will always take the opportunity to get some awake shots. If they are unsettled please don't stress, I have three children of my own (allot older than newborns now) and having photographed over hundred newborns I am fairly practised at soothing them.
 
 
 
 
Allot of people worry that trying to get photos of a potentially awake or crying baby will be too stressful and is enough to put them off having photos taken.  I personally don't think this has ever been the case and the overall feedback I receive are that it has been a relaxing and enjoyable experience.  So sit back, relax and watch me create some beautiful memories for you and your precious family to enjoy for many years to come.
 
Some feedback

Melbourne Newborn Photographer - Renee V Photography https://www.reneevphotography.com.au/blog/2021/10/melbourne-momo-twins Meet Melbourne's MoMo Twins - Olivia & Zoe

Monochorionic/Monoamniotic twins (MoMo twins)

 

 

Oliva & Zoe were born 26.01.2019, they were 28 weeks & 5 days new, which is about 11 weeks premature.

They spent 11 weeks in hospital..
 

I had the pleasure of meeting these beautiful girls and their parents when they came to my studio for their Newborn Session, they were 4 weeks corrected age at that stage.
 

 

 

Here's a little info about MoMo Twins.....
 

MoMo twins mean Monochorionic (single covering sac) Monoamniotic (single amniotic sac or bag of water). It means that both the babies are in the same amniotic sac and have only a single covering or chorion. These twins are often called “mono mono identical twins”, and just about 1% of all twins are MoMo twins.

 

 

 

How MoMo Twins Form

Identical (monozygotic) twins develop from a single egg-sperm combination that splits into two. If the split is delayed, usually a week or so after conception, the processes of growing a placenta, chorion, and amniotic sac are already underway. The two embryos will then develop within a single, shared sac, resulting in MoMo twins.


Only about 1 percent of twin pregnancies will occur in this manner.1

The majority of monozygotic twins will develop with separate sacs, or sometimes with separate amnions within a shared chorion, which are described as monochorionic-diamniotic or MoDi.

MoMo babies always have identical features and are of the same sex because they derive from the same gene set. No cases of the chromosomal abnormality that sometimes results in boy-girl sets of monozygotic twins have ever been identified in MoMo twins.

 

Diagnosis

During a twin pregnancy, most mothers are routinely monitored with ultrasound. Doctors will look for the presence of a dividing membrane that indicates that the twins are in separate sacs.

The lack of a membrane or a thin or vague line may prompt further analysis to confirm the situation. Ultrasound is the only way to detect MoMo twins.

MoMo twins are often misdiagnosed in the early weeks of pregnancy when the membrane is so thin as to be nearly invisible. Often, a later ultrasound reveals a dividing membrane confirming that twins are actually monochorionic-diamniotic.

 

Preterm Birth

After 24 weeks, the survival rate of MoMo twins is about 75 percent to 80 percent. Many MoMo twins experience life-threatening complications as early as 26 weeks resulting in spontaneous preterm delivery or an earlier than planned Cesarean Section (C-section). Preterm delivery is often associated with a number of other life-threatening conditions.

 

What an honour it was to be their Newborn Photographer!
