Jade Flores Photography offers relaxed, playful and authentic sessions with your family. Jade strives to capture images that are heartfelt, full of emotion and tell your family story.
Family sessions are perfect for capturing you all together, creating memories that are full of connections, fun, laughter and love. They are honest, playful and real.
Family sessions are either in-home or at a location in the Illawarra and are for immediate family only.
40 - 60 minute session on location or in-home
You bring them home and you are in your loving newborn bubble where you can spend the whole day just snuggling together. Our little babes change and grow so quickly and in those early weeks we are forced to slow down and take it all in. In home newborn sessions are the perfect way to capture those little moments of love, connection and pure amazement.
Maternity + Newborn
Capture the pure magic of pregnancy with a maternity session. Fun, relaxed and honest, documenting one of the most important chapters of your story. Team it with a newborn session and you have a complete chapter for you story book.
Your 1st Year
You bring your precious babe home, you are in your newborn bubble, the days feel long sometimes, but the months are flying by. You blink, you’re suddenly singing happy birthday to your infant…WHAT! where did that year go! Capture the changes over the year with this precious package.
Sessions held at newborn, 6 months and 12 months (approximate ages)
• What is the best time to have our location session?
Late afternoon is when you get the gorgeous soft light, the hour or two leading up to sunset. Mornings can be arranged, depending on location. If you are having an in-home session, these are on weekdays and times can be flexible.
• What is classed as a family session?
A family session is the immediate family only e.g Mum, Dad and children. An extended family session is when grandparents/aunts/cousins are also involved in the session. Please fill in the enquiry from here for a custom quote.
• What are some of your favourite locations?
I love shooting in the family home, I know some people find this daunting, however it is where children are most comfortable, everyone is relaxed, and real moments naturally occur.
Locations I love are some of our local beaches, some local parklands, urban/industrial streets and the beautiful country side we have at our doorstep. I’ll talk to you about what you love to do as a family/couple and suggest a location based on your answers
• How far in advance do we need to book?
I recommend booking at least 4 weeks in advance. If you are not very flexible with day, I would advise 6 weeks in advance. Location sessions are best in the hour leading up to sunset. Newborn and in- home family sessions are available on weekdays during the day. Please talk to me about the best session time for you. Limited weekend dates are available. To book please get in touch here.
• What if it is raining or windy for our outdoor session?
Unfortunately, we cannot control mother nature. If it is forecast for heavy rain we will reschedule before the date of your session. If we get to the day and it is poor weather we will reschedule your session or move it to a in-home session if you prefer. Not only is it dangerous to photograph in poor weather conditions, no one particularly enjoys it, which effects your session.
• What do we need to do to book?
I have made the process really easy, all you need to do is get in touch (you can do that here) tell me a bit about yourself, what images you are hoping to achieve from the session and preferred dates/times and we go from there. A $100 non refundable booking fee is required to secure your session, this will be invoiced to you.
• When is the best time to do a maternity session?
The ideal time for a maternity session is around the 30-34 weeks gestation. However this will depend on your pregnancy and if you have or are anticipating any complications.
• How soon should we do our newborn session?
As my images are not ‘posed’ I am a little more relaxed with the timing of newborn sessions, within the first month is the best.
• How do we receive the images?
Your images are delivered through a secure online gallery, ready for you to download, print and share. The gallery and download feature are password protected to ensure your security.
