The Experience

Booking your session

Upon booking your session you will receive a welcome guide which walks you through how to prepare for your session including a guide to what to wear. By filling out my questionnaire will help me to tailor the session to your needs and ensure you get the result you desire and images you can treasure for many years to come.


Newborn sessions are pencilled in based on your due date and upon baby’s arrival we reconfirm or adjust if required . Please make sure you book your session in advance as a limited amount of sessions are available each month, meaning I book out several weeks in advance. 


View my pricing and contact me to book or you can simply purchase a gift voucher which includes your session fee and a bonus 5×7″ print.

Your Photography Session


Newborn sessions are held in my Honeywood studio, where you can sit back and relax with a cuppa while I capture your precious new baby. My studio has various props, wraps, and backdrops available for use in your session. Sibling and family photos are included in your session. Newborn sessions may take up to 3 hours which can be a long wait for children so having someone to collect them after their photos or Dad to take them to the park allows us to create a calm, relaxed environment to focus on your baby’s remaining photos.


Family and Older Baby sessions take approx. 1 hour and are a fun way to capture the personality and character of your family.

Your Viewing and Ordering Session


After your photography session you will be invited back to the studio (either same  day or a few days later) where you will get to see your high resolution images for the first time. I will create a slideshow of your images and project them on the wall so you can enjoy the beauty of them on a larger scale.


Together we will work through your images, allowing you to choose your favourites and decide on which artwork and products will suit your home. It is a good idea to take a look around your home before your appointment and decide on where you would like to display your images. Better still bring a photo of the room.


It is important for all decision makers to be present at this session.

Your Finished Artwork

Approximately 3-5 weeks after your viewing and ordering session your artwork will be ready for collection from the studio. I love nothing more than handing over beautiful quality products to my clients.

I also love to see how amazing your images look displayed in your home so be sure to send me through a photo to info@petanikelphotography.com.au

Let’s secure your date!

Filling out the contact form will be your first step. Let me know your baby’s due date or when you require a session. A $125 session fee will make it official.
