Newborn


For best results we like to photograph newborns in the first two weeks of life.  After two weeks, babies start to stretch out rather than curl up in the same way a newborn does.   Older babies are more alert for longer periods of time limiting the positions we can safely pose them into. For babies between 16 to 28 days we style the session as we would a newborn session taking into consideration how alert your baby is on the day and what can safely be achieved within each babies stage of development and comfort.

It is a good idea to book your session well before your baby arrives and have us on the birth announcement list so that we can firm up the date as soon as your bundle of joy arrives. Sessions are between 2-3 hours in duration allowing plenty of time for feeds and for us to work in with your babies needs.  We supply a range of beautiful hand sourced props, wraps and accessories to compliment your session as well as comprehensive information containing tips for preparing your baby for a successful portrait session.  The session is an opportunity for parents to relax with a coffee and morning tea while we sooth your baby to sleep and make beautiful art.  While young siblings are welcome to stay for the family segment at the start of the session we ask that they depart after having their photograph taken.  Our newborn photography studio is a cozy purpose built space and your babies comfort and safety is our first priority.  The session works best with fewer people attending in an environment free from distractions or anything that may overstimulate a baby.  Newborn session attendance is limited to immediate family only with at least one parent required to stay for the duration of the session. For your babies comfort the studio is climate controlled to 26 degrees, and we suggest dressing light for the occasion and also bringing a change of outfit in the event of little accidents.

On booking a session with us, we contact you by email with your session details, arrange your phone consultation and also send an invoice at this time.  Our standard digital packages contain the inclusions listed on our pricing page.  We shortlist the best images from the day corresponding to the number of images in your chosen package, edit them to our signature style and deliver them in an online gallery with the convenience of self download from the privacy of your own home.  Custom sessions cater for clients seeking additional services not covered in our standard digital packages, a greater number of images to choose from, extended editing services including custom fine art composite editing, a combination of printed and digital products, in person client consultation and an in person gallery presentation.

We are experienced, trained in newborn safety, hold public liability insurance, a registered business with an ABN, up to date with vaccinations including whooping cough, have strict policies regarding illness and adhere to best practice safety rules for newborn photography.  Many of our beautiful images are achieved by combining several photos post-process using the art of composite editing.   We welcome questions.  As a parent we encourage you to ask questions of your photographer and to give priority to safety and experience rather than price.
