Newborn Sessions

"Newborn photos are something so precious that you can only achieve once in a lifetime!"

There is nothing more beautiful than newborn photography, and we know the importance of preserving your family's most precious moments.

Newborn portraits are best captured in the first 4-14 days, while your baby is sleeping soundly and flexible.

For babies that are born early and spend time in the hospital, we recommend scheduling a session within the first week of being sent home. While beautiful images can be captured at any stage and we work with newborns up to 6 weeks, keep in mind that once beyond those first days we will not be able to get the sleepy, curled poses.

 

We encourage families to book their newborn photography session as early as possible to ensure availability.

We only book a limited number of newborns each month to allow flexibility in our calendar for last-minute appointments.

Our studio uses natural materials for props and accessories that are gentle to your baby's skin. Most of the hand knit soft props and wraps are made of 100% natural organic yarn. Everything is washed after each session with detergents that are free of harsh chemicals.

However, we understand that sometimes parents like to bring along their own newborn accessories.

Sessions are held in our studio: 

Our professionally equipped camera room includes a change room for parents and change table for baby, plus it’s heated or cooled to suit you’re your babies needs. Baby’s comfort is the secret to great images.

 

You can expect your newborn session to last around 1-3 hours.

 

Newborns photograph best in their natural state so no need to provide clothes, or anything other than your beautiful baby. UNLESS there is something specific you would like to include in the photos, e.g. a blanket that grandma has knitted, footy jersey, a favourite outfit etc.

 

During your session we will make a whole range of stylish boutique images of your precious newborn. During your session at no extra cost we will include soft gentle mum and bub, and great dad and bub shots as well.

 

We also include the family as a group in a variety of poses, plus baby with brothers or sisters.
