Bump to Birth – The complete journey!

Full Investment: $1950

Booking Fee: $850

Bump to Birth sessions are all about documenting the whole journey from pregnancy to birth to a newborn portrait session.

Please understand that births are unpredictable, spontaneous & require me & my family to be on call. Due to this, I only take on very limited bookings that I feel are a good fit. in the event that your birth is unable to be captured (**excluding any events at the hospital that prohibit me being allowed in), I will transfer your booking to a standard newborn session valued at $850

Births are documentary style only. Low lighting & uncontrolled conditions can result in grainier images.

The birth of a child is one of the hardest, most life changing & emotional days you’ll experience in your life. My aim is to capture the raw, honest moments of the entire journey from the pregnancy to the arrival of a your beautiful baby. I believe this is a journey 2 parents go on together & I am to capture your story & emotions as expecting & new parents.

What’s Included:

Skai will be quietly by your side during active labour – capturing your journey & support network & right up until after bub is born – to capture those precious first minutes & cuddles earthside. She will allow plenty of time to capture as many candid moments as possible while bub meets the family & get’s first weights & measurements done.
Then she’ll see you again within a fortnight to do a more casual portrait session in your home. As newborn photos are very candid & documentive, this portrait session is an opportunity to get some prettier & more stylised images of your family that you can display in your home & gift to your friends. It’s also the final step in a series as you go on to start your new chapter together.

Skai fully understands that births are a private & sacred experience, & she joins you & your medical team with trust & respect, aiming to be little more than a fly on the wall during your experience.


  • A pre-birth warmup at approx 36/37 weeks gestation, to capture some beautiful maternity images & go over your preferences or last minute questions.
  • An on-call 24/7 relationship over the four week period surrounding your estimated due date until you give birth. (I aim to keep the 2 weeks either side of your due date clear of sessions that might limit my ability to cover your special delivery & currently only book 1 birth per month)
  • Time spent with you at your birth from active labour to approximately 2 hours after, capturing weighing/measurements, skin/skin, & all those first cuddles). This comes with the assurance that births are unpredictable & I am in for the long haul!
