Shining Light Photography comes to you on location of your choice or here at our home studio based in Ellenbrook. Whether you prefer the natural outdoor unposed look or a more studio type feel, we can make it happen.
Photoshoots are availabe all week long, 10am-2.30pm for in Studio during the week, or 6am or after 4pm for outdoor location shoots (weekends) Sundays are availabe from 1.30pm onwards.
All Newborns are shot from our studio location in Ellenbrook. This is due to amount of props and lighting we need, by shooting in our studio location we are able to fully control the environment making the shoot run smoother.
A little information on how our sessions run
Our Newborn sessions are totally relaxed, and we go at your babies’ pace with plenty of time for feeding, changes and soothing breaks. We photograph all newborns from our Ellenbrook studio so we can control temperature and lighting, we supply all the blankets, wraps, headbands and props you will need so you do not need to bring anything with you but if you have something special you would like to use you are more than welcome to bring it along to your baby’s photo shoot.
Newborns are best photographed before 4wks of age, preferably around 1-2wks, after this age your baby is much more alert and harder to settle not always allowing us to get those beautiful sleeping shots. Please do not be concerned about milk rashes etc as this can all be taken care of in editing.
If for any reason you miss this window, do not panic we can still get some beautiful shots of your baby they will just be slightly different to your typical newborn shot.
Please where ever possible allow a few weeks for booking. We understand that babies rarely arrive on their due date but by booking early we can secure your spot and will prioritize your shoot when the baby arrives.
Maternity shoots are completely relaxed and hopefully lots of fun! The photographer and expected parents will have a conversation leading up to the photo shoot date to discuss the feel of the shoot and if you would like a more formal or relaxed setting.
Shoots can be done in an outdoor location of the parents’ choice or here in our Ellenbrook based studio. We have several gowns and wraps that we will bring to each shoot which are designed to be adjustable to fit most sizes.
Dads and siblings are more than welcome to join in on the fun.
Baby’s First Year is a combined package of all the 4 millstones and it’s a great saving!
It made up of maternity, newborn, six months and one-year-old sessions.
Each of these sessions receives the full photo gallery from package #3. The ages are rough guides and we are open to moving them around as needed. Maternity may be swapped for a different session if desired. One-year-old sessions can be done as a normal shoot or cake smash.
Family shoots are usually best shot outdoors on location, while you have the option of shooting families in our Ellenbrook studio we have generally found families with young children benefit from being outdoors.
Children can run around outdoors and feel more relaxed than when they drop I can snap their photo.
We shoot the family all together in a few different poses and then all individually. We then have a play with a few different formations of family members. There is no extra cost for large families.
