Session Information



Newborn sessions are usually about 2/3 hours, allowing plenty of time to feed and soothe your baby as needed, as well as getting a variety of poses and set ups for your baby’s unique gallery of images.

If you are thinking of booking a newborn session, please contact me well before your baby is born so that I can keep your due date in mind. Newborn sessions need to be held within the first 10 days, ideally within the first week of your baby’s life. Why so young? Firstly because babies change very quickly, but also because they sleep a lot during the first 10 days, which helps to get the adorable poses we’re looking for. Moreover, at this age they don’t usually have “colic” and newborn acne. As they get older, they become more sensitive to their surroundings and it is more difficult to work with them.


Approximately two weeks after your session, I will invite you to meet me in order to view and choose your images. Following this meeting, I will create an on-line slideshow of your images. You will be provided with a link to access it. Feel free to share this link with family and friends who wish to view your portraits.

Your gallery will remain live for two weeks.


Session Fee is $150, which includes up to 3 hours of custom-styled photography with the images presented as on online gallery for you to order from. The session fee includes the photographer’s time, talent and postprocessing work. Birth cards, prints, books, lumi tiles, canvases and digital prints are all available and to be purchased separately.

Collections start from $790.

Please feel free to contact me if you need more information regarding the price breakdown of my collections.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

A bientot!


A Few Words from My Beautiful Clients

Client Feedback

Valerie went above and beyond during our newborn shoot! She had so much passion and persistence to capture the perfect shots and took extra time with our alert baby which was really appreciated. We absolutely love the photos and the way they have been presented and will treasure them forever. The whole experience was so easy to navigate thanks to Valerie!

Client Feedback

Valerie is extremely talented. I love her photography style and ability to capture such beauty in her pictures. It is the little details like a babies lips or toddlers eye's that she is able to capture as a precious photo keepsake for years to come. Kids change so quickly so having these photo's is just so special. We have had her take new born photo's of both our children as well as our daughters first birthday. They are just stunning. We have them framed down our hall way as a gallery and get to admire them every day. Her nature is so patient and her french accent is so lovely with the babies and really puts you at ease. Her studio is great too, beautiful light and a space to relax. As Valerie is a mum herself you really trust her with your baby. I highly receomend Valerie to all my friends. She is also very reasonably priced in the market place.

Client Feedback

I feel so greatful to have found Valerie.

Before I contacted her I was online looking at photographs I liked and stumbled across her website. I instantly loved her style so I booked in to have our newborn session worh her.

To say she went over and above would be an understatement, Valerie really loves her work and takes the time to get those shots just perfect. We loved working with her, she was so calm and the pictures were stunning. I highly recommend her to others, particularly new Mums who wish to catch that "newborn essence"

Client Feedback

Valeries work is second to none. She takes so much time and care in what she does and is truly talented. I am absolutely in love with the pictures and so is my husband - we couldn’t be happier with our choice in Valerie capturing the special moment of our newborn son.

I’ll definitely be back with my next Bub xxx

Client Feedback

We couldn't recommend Valerie highly enough! We absolutely loved our newborn photos. Valerie is very talented and goes above and beyond to achieve the perfect shot. She is very patient (we had to stop for a feed midway through the session and never felt rushed) and loves babies and her job. Her props are gorgeous and there is lots to choose from. We would definitely use again for number two.
