Hey, I'm Tiarne
Welcome to my little corner of internet. My name is Tiarne Carney,
a Tweed Heads birth photographer and lover of all thing’s motherhood, babies, family and birth. Whilst birth photography will always remain my passion, I relish in walking the whole journey to family: from capturing the sweet milestones sprinkled throughout a pregnancy to the deliciously tender moments you will spend with your newest edition as well as the ebbing and flowing seasons of family life as your little loves grow into adventurers and fun seekers. I also have a burning passion for positive birth education and love gifting you skills to unleash the knowledge and empowerment you hold within during my HypnoBirthing course.
Thank you for trusting and investing in me to capture this season for you. I know your images will be treasured for lifetimes.
What to expect
BEFORE YOUR SESSION
To secure your session with me, I require a $300 non refundable session fee. This ensures that your requested session date is locked into my calendar.
Once your payment has been received, you will receive a link to your online portal. This portal will give you access to your contract and questionnaire and image package options (more info on these below.)
Please ensure you take your time filling out your questionnaire so I can gain a deep understanding of you before our session together. I want to get to know you as best I can. I value connection and building a relationships with all of my wonderful clients. This helps you feel at ease during our time together and also ensures I can do the best job of telling your story through the images we take together.
Newborn sessions take place in my studio located in Banora and we allow up to 2 hours for your session. Newborn sessions are best in the first 0-3 weeks, with the most optimal time being around 10 days news.
We include family, sibling and individual baby shots throughout the session - sorry no extended family members for these sessions.
What to expect
DURING YOUR SESSION
know it can be overwhelming booking in a photo session and some times the nerves creep in. I want you to have full faith and trust in me. I promise to capture you and your family in this blurry, slow, yet utterly beautiful newborn season.
Newborn sessions involve a lot of gentle posing directions, lots of snuggles, eskimo kisses and adoring your little babe.
If I’m not saying anything, it’s because you’re absolutely nailing it.
My goal is to create images that feel candid and natural and show the true essence of your family whilst also capturing the tiny details of your newest little love.
If you have a partner and older children, feel free to bring them along to the session.
What to expect
AFTER YOUR SESSION
After our session together, we will hug goodbye and I will be just as excited as you to start the editing process.
Your images will be delivered to you in a private online gallery within 3 weeks of your session. These images are what photographers call a soft proof gallery. These images are not your final images they are instead the first stage of editing. Once you have selected your package size and favourite images, I will revise the editing and make any further touch ups.
It is at this point you can choose to upgrade your image package, if you wish.
Once I have received your selections I will begin the final editing process and have the final gallery delivery back to you in 1-2 weeks.
I have a variety of packages for you to choose from - all images include digital files and prints. The prints are included in each package to prove the integrity of the digital files. The prints cannot be exchange for additional digital files.
You will automatically be associated with Package 1 upon booking your session. You can upgrade this package before or after viewing your soft gallery proofs.
Please note that the image packages are in addition to the $300 session fee. Most clients have an average spend of $1000 total.
Locations- I have a beautifully lit studio located in Banora Point. My studio is generous in size and hosts a warm and inviting environment.
I have a newborn posing bean bag for the individual baby shots as well as a aesthetically design space big enough to capture your whole family.
If you really have your heart set on an in-home session please reach out to Tiarne via email as these sessions are very limited. There is also a significant price increase for an in-home session to account for travel time etc. The in-home session fee is $500 a-pose to $300 for a studio session. Image packages are the same price.
There is so much to be said regarding outfit styling and coordination however to put it simply neutral tones suit my style of photography perfectly.
Colours that edit well with my style are all of the earthy tones. Beige, brown, bone, off-white, khaki, burnt orange and anything else that is on this wave of colour. I suggest wearing these sorts of tones as they also really compliment the locations I shoot at too. .
While outfits do matter, it's also necessary that you feel entirely yourself in your photos.
With this being said - if you normally wouldn't wear a mini dress - don't wear one for your photos. Don't change your hairstyle or feel the need to dress differently. Just be authentically you.
I have a newborn client wardrobe that you are more than welcome to access. This consists of neutral toned knitted outfits, beanies, booties and flower crowns. All items are offered completely complimentary.
How to prepare little ones...
If you are hoping to get some sleeping newborn images theres a few things that may (not always) assist you.
Keep baby awake 45 min prior to your session - easier said than done, I know.
Give them a big feed just before you arrive
Avoid lots of layers - especially if you want some nudey shots - the less we have to undress the better.
Avoid any foods/drinks that may upset your baby's belly 24-48hours before your session
Stay calm, an upset baby does not bother me, I promise.
Otherwise, just follow your normal routine and we will capture some forever treasures, I promise.
If you are bringing siblings along we will probably do these images and the family images first so that if required another family member can take the older siblings for a walk or play outside. Feel free to bring along some of their favourite toys, snacks or anything you know makes them happy.
As your photographer, I will do my very best to create an environment where your entire family is at ease, allowing a space where I can document beautiful moments that are entirely you, in the season you are in right now.
See you soon
I hope this guide has helped you prepare for our session together. I am so excited to meet you and capture some beautiful moments in time. Becoming a mother is the reason I started my business, so truely am grateful for the opportunity to capture you and your new little love.
If you have any additional questions that weren't answered in this welcome guide please feel free to email me.
