CONGRATULATIONS on your pregnancy or birth of your beautiful baby!
I look forward to the opportunity of working with you and your newborn during this wonderful time in your life!!
Newborn photographs are best taken within the first 5 days – 2 weeks of your newborn’s life. During that time, your baby is still very sleepy and curly. After 2 weeks of age, they tend to be disturbed more easily while sleeping. However, that does not mean that I don’t take photos after 2 weeks of age! I am more than happy to take photos of your newborn at ANY age!! In every shoot, I aim to photograph a variety of images: in props, in your arms, with siblings and those detailed images of their newborn hands, feet and lips!
You won’t know when your baby will arrive, unless you’re having a scheduled c-section! So please let me know your expected due date in advance to add to my calendar. Once your baby is born, we will then schedule your actual newborn photoshoot.
Newborn photography shoots take place in my custom designed home studio as I have all of the props, lighting and resources necessary for a successful session. Newborn photoshoots are 1.5-3 hours in length as this allows time to feed and settle your baby, if needed.

NEWBORN PHOTOSHOOT PRICING
Do you have a studio?
Yes I do! I am located in Narre Warren North and have everything you need for a successful session.
Do you have props?
Yes! I have everything here from baskets, wraps, blankets, headbands and bonnets to florals. If you have a special keepsake you'd like to have photographed, please feel free to bring that along!
Do you charge more for twins?
No. Parents with twins already have additional costs, so I would never add to those costs!
Can parents and siblings be included in the shoot?
Yes, Yes, Yes!! I think family photos are too important not to be taken!!
Do you think about safety?
Yes, Yes, Yes!!! Safety is my NUMBER ONE PRIORITY! Be prepared for yourself or your partner to be on ‘spotting’ duty! If I ever think a baby or child is/will be unstable, I always organise someone to be close to the child, while I photograph.
What happens if there is a toilet accident?
There is no need to stress about that! It’s unusual if a newborn or baby doesn’t have an accident during my sessions! Everything is washable!!
What do I need to bring?
I will have everything here for your session, unless discussed prior. Some items that are regularly required include:
- - nappy bag
- - bottles (if bottle feeding)
- - dummy
- - sibling outfits
- - parent outfits
Do I need to select my Digital Collection before the session?
Yes. As session lengths vary and to allow for a smooth session, I need to have my workflow prepared for you. Longer sessions require more set ups, while shorter sessions require less.
How can I make a booking?
You have a few options to make a booking:
- - Phone
- - Online booking form
When booking, a contract, questionnaire and $150 deposit are required to confirm your session/booking.
Do I need to pay a deposit?
Yes, a $150 deposit is required to secure your session date and time. If your deposit is not received by the due date, your session will be made available to other clients.
How do I pay?
You can pay online via direct debit and credit card, or cash during your session.
Do you offer a printing service?
Yes, Yes, Yes! This, I feel is so important. The professional printers that I use are based in Australia and create quality, handmade products, with great warranties. By using a professional printer, you will receive printed products with a much more accurate colour and finish.
Print products include: prints, framed prints, floating framed canvas, acrylic prints, albums & birth announcements. Please visit the Printed Products page or use the Contact form if you have further questions.
