Clocking off for a much needed break

Just a little in joke amongst all us newborn photographers. To make sure our babies are comfy it basically means that we have to be uncomfy. Its all worth it in the end when those galleries are staring us right in the face. If you are wanting to book a Newborn Photography Session, Baby Photography Session or a Cake Smash Photography Session please contact me below Im clocking off, Happy New year everyone!!!

Maternity Photographer Berwick

Hair & Make Up for Maternity Photos ​ Make -up should be classic and clean. However your foundation can be quite thick as this photographs well and helps me to smooth out your skin in post-processing. Finger and toenails groomed. Lotion and lip balm will help with close-ups. Hair the same - loose is best. Have your hair either straightened or curled/waved depending on your style. We can put it up to suit a shot at a later time if needed, so make sure you bring hair ties and bobby pins. I highly recommend drinking lots of extra water for the prior two days…it will make your skin look particularly beautiful!

Newborn and Baby Photographer Officer

This little family is super happy with their new arrival and he just made it in time for Christmas. When a baby arrives you literally want to bottle up your babies smell so you can remember it always. You want to remember how small their hands were, their lashes, those gorgeous little milk spots. The first few weeks can be intense but its so important to capture this moment as it will be gone so quickly. Newborn shoots are best done when bubs is under 3 weeks so all those squishy sleepy poses can be achieved. If you would like to make a booking with Alana Taylor Photography please ensure you book in early to avoid missing out!! Love Alana X Contact Me Melbourne Newborn Photographer | Newborn

Merry Christmas everyone. What a wonderful day we had today. We spent the day with family and extended family having way too much food and I'm not going to lie, maybe a few too many Christmas drinks.

Getting Ready for your Newborn Session

We are getting ready to take a little break, for all of my newborn shoots coming up in the new year, a few reminders: What To Bring ​​ Bring your makeup in case you have to touch up A change of clothing in case baby has an accident on you Bring Lotion or oil for your baby in case they have flaky skin Bring Snacks Bring Ipads or colouring books for Siblings Bring Bribes (ie chocolate or things they love) for siblings in case we need it for the sibling shots Grab a pacifier even if you do not plan on letting your baby use one. Pacifiers help soothe babies and will make the session go much smoother. If your baby becomes unsettled in a pose often a dummy will calm them enough to continue witho

First Birthday Photos Berwick

What is it all about? We begin by taking pictures of your little one in their cake smash outfit before introducing the cake and try to get some cute smiles before we start. All parents hope that their little one will dive in and make a mess of the cake. However this doesn’t always happen and that’s okay. We let your baby set the pace, as some little ones dig right in and destroy the cake, and others need a little bit of encouragement and sometimes even help to get into their cake. Be ready to get your hands dirty and help your little one get past all that frosting to the cake underneath! I suggest to all my clients to practice with their little one at home with smashing up a cake and making

Please refer to my Pinterest Board as it has loads of ideas to help you select clothing that will look good for you shoot. I have a variety of maternity dresses and outfits available for you to use during your session so dont worry if you dont have much to bring along clothes wise.

In addition I also work with Mama Rentals who offer an amazing collection of maternity dresses for hire at a discount for my clients. If you dont see something you love in my gallery you are more than welcome to hire a dress direct from Mama Rentals ​ Fitted and cropped tops are great for showing off your belly also. As w

Cake Smash First Birthday Photography Mornington Pennisula

During your session it's important to get your baby to interact with me and the camera. This is purely to get gorgeous images of connection with your baby. I do this by interacting solely with your baby (provided baby isn't upset). I do ask that during the session you allow and trust in me to build a rapport with your bubs so I can produce images you will love. If your bubs is upset or I'm unable to interact and I require your assistance I will ask for you to come sit down right next to me to help me get a cute smile if I wasn't able to get one myself. Babies tend to enjoy their cake smashes in a calm environment, hence, too much hyperactivity, jumping around can cause babies to worry and be

Cake Smash Themes and Cakes

As part of your Cake Smash Package I provide an outfit for your little one to wear on the day and a cake of your choice will be provided from the options I have available from my local cake maker below. Each cake can be done in any colour/colours that you like. I recommend to choose your outfit and then choose your cake and cake colours to match the chosen outfit. Adding a Rainbow Inside or a layered Colour Palette in your cake is an extra $20 on your Package price.

Maternity Photographer Narre Warren

Maternity Sessions are best done between 32-36 weeks before your little baby prepares itself for birth & moves down into your pelvis for birth. This remarkable little manoeuvre makes your belly “drop” & is not very flattering on camera. Some mums never drop, some drop well before 32 weeks…it’s all up to you! Maternity sessions are done at my studio and session is 1 hour. You will arrive with 2 sets of outfits (for both yourself & your partner) & we will change as we go along. However I do have a selection of beautiful Maternity Gowns that we can use during your session. Siblings are welcome at no extra charge. A what to wear guide will be forwarded to make shopping or packing a little ea

Melbourne Newborn Baby Photographer

I may spend up to 1-2 hours photographing your baby, however sometimes your baby may require more time. I allow enough time for your baby to eat, for me to clean up messes and settle your baby if needed. It also accounts for changing setups for different poses. I keep my studio nice and toasty. The temperature can range from 23 to 28 degrees so you will want to dress appropriately.

Anyone?

I hate to admit it but I am probably sitting somewhere between B and C. What a huge year we have had at Alana Taylor Photography, barely any time to prepare for the holidays and Christmas day.

I have been the leading Cake Smash Photographer in Melbourne for over 8 Years now. Cake Smash sessions are best done at around 10-12 months old as they do not yet have food sensory issues and dont mind getting dirty. Over 1 Years and they can sometimes get very upset with the mess. Cake Smashes are a great way to celebrate your little ones first birthday or if done early enough you can use the images for the 1st Birthday Invitations. I have many different Cake Smash outfits that your child can wear for the session otherwise you can organise your child's outfit. I encourage my clients to make the cake smash session their own. Be adventurous in colour when picking your outfit! I have a TON of

When?

WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY NEWBORN SESSION? BOOK NOW! I only take on a certain amount of mums due dates per month and I book out fast! Basically the way it works with a newborn shoot is if you are interested in booking a photo shoot for when bubs is born, you provide me with your due date so I can put it in my calendar. Once baby is born you need to contact me with 48 hours so we can book in a time within the first 2-3 weeks or so of birth so you can get all the gorgeous sleepy photos I usually leave spots available for newborns as I have so many ladies due dates in my calendar. If you do not book in prior to having your baby then it will be unlikely I will be able to do newborn photos for you so

cake or no cake

From time to time I'm asked about 1st Birthday photography sessions but without the cake. How well do you really think this would go? Let's think about it for a second. This is the age where stranger danger can kick in, they can be moving fast and with nothing to do there is no chance of a portrait shot, tears can come with boredom, you get the point!! Add some yummy messy cake and walah!!

Thankful

Alana is an absolute magician with kids. We have a very strong willed two year old but Alana still managed to capture perfect shots. Our newborn was settled the entire time & our 5 year old was included and praised throughout the entire session. It is stressful going in knowing you have 3 kids you want beautiful photos of & Alana makes you feel so comfortable & at ease! A huge variety of props/clothing etc We have been to Alana since we had our first child & have used her for all newborn/family/cake smashes!!! She is AMAZING!!!!! Alana has helped us create such beautiful memories of our children 3 times now and I can’t rate her highly enough! Each experience has gone above and beyond my

Anyone else feeling this way?

20 days to Christmas and this is a great representation of how I am feeling. I have started shopping but my goodness the anxiety levels are real trying to find a park and navigate my way through the plazas. Lists are a great way to stay focused and on track and my only coping mechanism. How are you coping with the Christmas count down?

stranger danger

In my experience stranger danger can kick in anywhere from 6 months to 1 years old. I pride myself on really bonding with your child, we have plenty of time to get to know each other and get comfortable in a new environment. I have a wonderful assistant and together we play little games, sing songs and share in laughter. Your child's comfort is our number one priority. Come and see me soon.
