NATURAL IMAGERY BY KYLIE DUNLOP PHOTOGRAPHY
MATERNITY & NEWBORN IMAGERY
ABOUT THE ARTIST Hi! I’m Kylie Dunlop! I’m a natural light Professional Family Portrait Photographer with a specialty in Newborns, photographing from maternity through 2 years of age. I have spent the last 4 years photographing, studying, and educating myself in newborn photography. I pride myself in being highly experienced in handling and soothing newborns. I love babies: their squishy little toes, sweet smiles, and tiny button noses. Oh and I have 3 babies of my own - so have a little bit of personal experience as well!
THE STORYTELLER My approach and style to photography is pure, natural, simple and fresh. I am your storyteller. I’m here to capture the story of your newborn baby and portray that through my vision. The first few days when he/she is sleepy, squishy and curling up as if still in the womb. The first smile, the flaky skin, and the swish of curl upon his/her head. These are your memories that have only just begun.
CREATING MEMORIES Your child is the most priceless and precious gift. Capturing the first few days of your baby's life with a photographer you connect with is as special as your wedding day. The love you have for your child is the celebration of love between two people. Those moments captured as photographs will be your memories forever….family heirlooms you will share with your child and their children for many years to come. Don't let these moments pass you by . . .

I love to use soft colors of white, creams, browns and grays. On occasion I will add in small pops of color, but I donâ€™t like anything to distract from the baby, so I try to keep things simple and pure. I rarely use many props besides hats, headbands, blankets and wraps. I prefer to keep the focus on the baby. KYLIE DUNLOP PHOTOGRAPHY |
Those fond memories of motherhood begin before the birth while you’re still feeling refreshed, beautiful and excited about the joy of your new arrival! This is the beginning of the new life growing inside you;; your body as one with your unborn child. An experience we are blessed with for a very short time in our lives. Sometimes we may think we don’t want to capture this time. For whatever reasons we may have, this is a moment in your life you will treasure forever. You’ll always remember hearing your baby’s first heartbeat, the first kick, or the tiny little hiccups. But will you remember the beautiful baby bump or how gorgeous you looked? Maternity photographs are personal and a change in our body we should capture.

NEWBORNS Your newborn session will be a special milestone in your baby’s life. I want to help you tell the story of your new baby. I like to create a calm and peaceful environment during our time together. It’s important to let me know if we will be photographing older siblings, as well as mum and dad shots. I prefer to take sibling shots at the beginning of the session so that we may have the remaining time focusing on the baby alone.
WHAT TO EXPECT If you are coming to me, you should expect to arrive 10-15 minutes before your scheduled time to allow for feedings. The room is kept at around 30 degrees in order to keep the baby warm & comfortable. Newborns can lose their body temperature quickly, especially when unclothed, so we need to assure they are kept warm at all times. You may want to dress in layers so that you are comfortable as well. Please know that babies pee and poo on everything and you don’t need to worry. I have plenty of wipes and pads on hand and everything is washed after each session. There will be a white noise machine running to help soothe the baby. Feel free to sit back, relax, read a book, or even take this opportunity to take a nap yourself! No outside cameras, videos, or mobile phone cameras are allowed at the studio or any location session.

THE SLEEPY, CURLY STAGE
The best age to photograph newborns is when they are between 5-10 days new. During this time newborns are still very sleepy and curly. They don’t mind you moving them around from pose to pose while they rest in dreamland! Once they have a full belly and are kept warm, they will generally sleep the entire session! This is not to say we can’t photograph your newborn at any other age. Beautiful images can be captured at any stage. However, you should know that once beyond this “new” stage, we may not be able to get the curly poses. If you are sure you want specific poses, please ask about those during your pre-consultation. LITTLE BOYS If you are considering having your baby boy circumcised, we will need to make sure we allow him at least 5 days of healing time before his session. It’s always best to schedule the procedure after the photo session if at all possible.

WHAT TO BRING UIFEVNNZ- The “NUK” or “PIGEON” dummies are highly recommended for your newborn baby. I have found them to be the most effective in soothing and helping newborns to latch on easily. Even if you aren’t thinking you will want to use a dummy, I encourage you to bring one to your session. The short amount of time we will be using one should not affect any habit-forming behaviors for your baby. My goal is to help keep the baby happy and calm during our session. FYUSBCPUUMFT - Whether you are nursing or bottle feeding, having extra bottles and/or milk is suggested. Some babies tend to eat more than usual during their photo sessions. It’s best to be prepared! Feel free to bring food for yourself as well, although I will have snacks for you in the studio. OVSTFSZJUFNT - Hand knitted hats, blankets, a special toy, rattle.... these are all things that help create the story of your baby’s first few days of life. I love photographing separate items to be used in their newborn albums! DMPUIJOH- Generally I will be photographing your baby unclothed. Part of the experience in capturing a newborn is seeing the squishy little toes and cute tiny bums. However, I do recommend bringing simple clothing, such as simple onesies.

My goal as your Photographer, is not only to pose the baby in to the curly, squishy poses everyone loves, but to also capture natural imagery portraits of your newborn. This is a time to reflect on the true, untouched, unposed expression of the baby as themselves. Little things that help shape and mold them in to whom they will become as a person are special and unique to each baby.
Itâ€™s not about the picture you take . . . itâ€™s about the story you tell.

AFTER THE SESSION Within 7 days from your session, a “sneak peek” of one or two photos from your session will be posted on my facebook page. This is a great time to forward this on to family & friends & build up some referral credits for yourself! For each referral that books a newborn or family portrait session, you will both receive a $100 print credit! Proofs will be available for on-line viewing within 3 - 4 weeks. I will provide a private, password protected gallery for you to share with family and friends. They are welcome to contact me to place their order. The gallery will remain active for 7 days. There will be a $50 per week fee charged for galleries requested to remain active beyond this timeframe. Once you have received your gaIlery details I will call you within 24 hours to schedule your ordering session. All orders are due at this time. When we meet for your ordering session, please bring with you all decision makers, as your appointment is designed for you to place your order. It’s best to leave little ones with a sitter. As a creative artist, I will select 30 - 40 images for your gallery. Orders can take anywhere from 2 - 6 weeks, depending on the type of product(s) you order. For example, portraits can take two weeks whereas custom albums will take longer. If you need your order by a certain date, please make sure to let me know at your ordering session. I will call you when your order is ready for pick up. Orders can also be shipped for an additional charge. KYLIE DUNLOP PHOTOGRAPHY |
