Newborn Photography

With over 20 years experience handling & settling newborns, safety is my biggest priority. I am baby led, this means I adapt poses to ensure an easy flowing session & you and your family can go home feeling relaxed.

I recommend newborn’s to be between 5-12 days ‘new’. This means we can capture those tiniest moments without your newborn being too sensitive / alert to pose. These sessions run between 2 to 3 hrs depending on feed / sleep cycles and the nature of your baby (and toddlers!)

Choose your style
Newborn wrapped

You baby is wrapped during the session which encourages your newborn to sleep peacefully throughout and allows a faster flow through poses, with sibling/s and parents.

 

Newborn wrapped & bare skin

These sessions include the above wrapping style and poses, but after those images are complete, the time is focused on easing and settling baby into each pose and position when unwrapped. The infant Moro reflex (feeling of sudden loss of support) is strong when they are naked, this can cause them to startle, cry or feel vulnerable.

When to book

The ideal time to photograph newborns is when they are 7 – 14 days “new”. This way they are still teeny tiny, womb-like, curled up and sleepy. I recommend making initial contact from 12 weeks of pregnancy to secure a maternity session and tentative newborn session, based on your delivery date. For your newborn photoshoot, within 48 hours of delivery, please make contact and we will schedule a day & time that suits. 

About your session

Newborn sessions are slow and gentle. I take special care in working with you and your newborns needs, making sure your baby is safe, warm and comfortable is my number one priority. I have been trained to handle and pose newborns safely. I avoid overstimulating a newborn and we take breaks as needed for settling and feeding. Depending on how sleepy or hungry your baby is, sessions can take anywhere between 1.5 to 3 hours. 

It’s important to consider that we cannot always achieve the desired image. I am always reading your baby’s signs and cues. If your baby is not settling and seems uncomfortable, I adapt my session to ensure the happiness and comfort of your newborn and I always monitor the heat of the room and baby. I use techniques such as sound and motion to help soothe babies into deeper sleep.
