Newborn babies are my favourite subjects to photograph. As a mother of four children, I know that children seem to grow overnight, and they are only this little for a very short period of time. Their tiny little hands and squishy feet, their innocent face and baby hair – you will want to remember this moment forever.
Newborn photography sessions are the perfect way to celebrate this milestone for your family. I feel privileged to capture the beginning of your child’s life journey. As a specialist newborn photographer, with over 7 years of experience, I will provide you with beautiful newborn photos that you will cherish forever.
When is the best time for your newborn photography session?
Newborn photography is best scheduled for when your baby is between 5-10 days new. This is the time when they are most sleepy and will curl easily. They are also super sleepy in these first two weeks of life. However, we can still take ‘newborn’ photos of your baby up to 6 weeks of age, we simply adjust the poses a little bit to ensure your baby is comfortable.
When should we book-in for our newborn photography session?
It is best to book in when you are in your second or third trimester. I only take a limited number of bookings per month. I know that babies rarely show up on time so the confirmed date of your Newborn Session is always done after your baby is here.
Do I need to bring along items for my baby?
I provide all of the outfits, props, hats, headbands and wraps for your baby’s newborn photography session. I purchase props from all over the world, and each item is specifically design for newborn photography (to ensure it is the correct size and soft and comfortable for your baby). However, if you have any particular item that is special to you (such as a family heirloom), I am happy for you to bring these along and we can incorporate these into the photos.
Do we get to select the colours and styling for our newborn photography session?
Yes! Each newborn session is styled to match YOUR taste - we will discuss your preferences for colours, props and poses so that you absolutely love the images from your newborn session. I always suggest to look through my newborn gallery before newborn session.
