The best time to photograph your newborn baby is ideally in their first 5-14 days of life. This is when babies tend to fall into a heavier sleep and are less likely to wake up while being handled during posing. They’re also more pliable to work with and ‘curl up’ nicely during their first two weeks of life. Most of the newborn babies shown in the Newborn Photography Gallery on this site are under 14 days old. It is therefore highly advised that you book your newborn photography session BEFORE YOUR BABY ARRIVES, that way I can tentatively book time during those first 10 days for you. However, if your newborn has already arrived then please still contact me & I’ll always do my best to accommodate a client for a photography session.
Newborn photography sessions are held in my Logan Village natural light studio where I have access to my wide range of internationally sourced props and equipment. The session takes approximately 2-3 hours which allows plenty of time for feeding and settling your baby so you can sit back, relax and look on without feeling rushed.
It’s a good idea for you to perhaps bring along a spare set of clothes for both your baby and yourself as sometimes little accidents can happen. Also a couple of spare wraps or swaddles are handy to keep your baby warm in-between poses.
If you’d like to have some family portraits taken with your baby then can I please suggest that you may like to wear plain coloured clothing as patterns tend to be a little distracting and detract from the main subject of the photo…which of course, is your precious newborn.
I recommend that you feed your baby before you leave home for your session, then the car ride will usually put them to sleep before you arrive. Another tip is to dress your newborn in loose non-restrictive clothing to avoid leaving unwanted marks on their precious skin for photos.
If you have any questions at all, please feel free to call or email me and I will be happy to help you any way that I can to make sure that your newborn photos are something that you’ll cherish forever.
