Newborn

In-Studio & Baby Led

Newborn sessions are slow and gentle. I am 100% baby-led and take special care in working with you and your newborn's needs, making sure your baby is safe, warm and comfortable is my number one priority. I have had extensive training over 20 years 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 2 to 4 hours.

I am constantly 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 monitor the heat of the room and baby. I also use techniques such as sound and motion to help soothe babies into deeper sleep.

For outfit choices, I have a large number of stunning maternity gowns for you to choose from but can also see photos of your own dresses if you prefer. You can also pick from a selection of my floral headbands or we can order a super-something-special fresh from my favourite florist!

FAQs

Common Queries About Newborn

Where do shoots take place?

Newborn shoots take place in our North Sydney studio. (If you are wanting a shoot in-hospital, more information can be found on our 'Fresh 48' page.

WHEN DO YOU SHOOT?

Preferably Monday to Friday (we have our own little families too), but exceptions can be made.

Some careful planning is required and guidance is provided in the preparation guide which you will receive before your shoot. We also understand timings with babies do not always go to plan and will adapt. We are baby-led and want you and baby to be as comfortable as possible to get the best shots.

WHAT DO I WEAR?

Before the shoot, we will send you a preparation guide which answers a lot of questions around styling. We will also discuss this with you during our pre-shoot phone consultation, but the key take away is neutral colours.

In studio, we have a number of beautiful baby clothes, wraps and props.
