did you do one (either or both)? were you pleased with the results? was it worth the $$ ?
we've done neither with our ds and I'm wondering whether we should've? he's 9 weeks old on Thursday so hardly qualifies as newborn but I'm thinking maybe some "new family" pics would be nice perhaps. we have a ton of pics of him but very few of the 3 of us that are actually nice.
dh is always a bit against professional photo shoots so it'll be hard to convince him.
if anyone has any recommendations for photographers they used and loved in Melb? would be good to start researching and get the ball rolling.

We did newborn photos. There's so many newborn photographers out there it was hard to choose. We ended up going with someone that a few friends and work colleagues used.
Where abouts in melbourne are you? I'm northern suburbs can can PM who we used
For us it was worth it as the photos are gorgeous and I could never myself take pics like that. I paid $350 or $450 (can't remember now) for 20 pics on usb and 3 printed and 2 hours photoshoot
We used the photos for Xmas cards, thank you cards and the christening invitations.

what puts my dh off is that you don't get the images on USB, you have to order prints. he's a designer and has his own printing preferences and can get things printed much cheaper so bawks at the idea of paying someone else to do what he can source at a better rate.
I'd also like to have images on USB as it means you can use them electronically and I don't just want a couple of framed photos to lob up on the walls at home.

We spent a small fortune (like a mortgage payment) on Kri$tin C00k but it was worth every penny. She is amazing.
She considers newborns under 2 weeks so her baby / child rates may be different.
Edit: I think you can buy the USB, we did, but not sure if as a single item.

I'll see if I can dig up her pricing and PM it to you if I can find it.
Update: USB alone was $2300...

I did really like her though. That was just my experience. DH thought it was daylight robbery, lol.

We got the mid package, and added the digitals. I really wanted them for some reason... I've used a few of them, but I probably could have lived with the 10 which were included.
