Newborn photography

AIPP MemberOne of Adelaide’s most recognised and trusted names in newborn and baby photography

Classically beautiful, pure simple poses, my newborn sessions are about capturing your angelic baby in the first few days or weeks, creating gorgeous images that will be treasured forever.

We forget so quickly just how fast our new little bundles grow and change, a newborn session will capture details, those tiny fingers and my favourite, those baby feet that will never be that small again. Your session is all about your expanding family, capturing your heart and soul in your images, showing the joy you share as a family.

Newborn & baby collections cater for babies up to 2 years of age, and I do recommend booking before your newborn arrives to ensure a session when your baby is between 5-14 old. Your session date is not confirmed until after the arrival of your baby.  I often receive calls from parents who have already welcomed their baby into the world. I photograph babies of all ages. If your little one has already arrived, please don’t feel you have missed out.  I reserve weekday mornings for baby and newborn photography sessions in the studio.  Either give me a call or if it’s easier, use the contact form to touch base, I can usual fit you in without too much delay.

For those soon to be mums looking to have both a maternity photography session as well as a newborn photo session, visit our  maternity portraits page to view a special offer that will save you $100, for those who book both sessions with the studio.

Newborn photo sessions are held in a purpose built studio in Blair Athol, everything is provided for you. I’ve have sourced many stunning handmade props and accessories from across the globe. I want to ensure your proof gallery is full of variety for your to select your image collection from.  Within 3 days of your session, you will be provided with a link to a private gallery with your images. You can share this with family and friends if you wish.  It is here you will choose your favourite images to include in your photography collection.  Once your images have been selected the turnaround time for you to receive your collection is within 2 weeks, I know you want your images as soon as possible.

Baby portrait sessions are a great way to capture your little one as they grow and change throughout those first 2 years of their life.  Many of my clients choose to revisit the studio at 6 months and 12 months – or when your baby is sitting and walking respectively to capture these significant milestones.  I have a huge range of props and outfits from birth to 2 years for you to access throughout the session.

I only schedule one newborn session per day in the mornings. Most little ones have had a hard night keeping mum and dad on their toes so its at this time they enjoy lots of cuddles, along with a big feed and are ready for a long nap. My sessions take an average of 2-2.5 hours and there is plenty of time to feed and settle your baby. I never rush, your little one is always in charge.  When visiting the studio all you need to bring is your beautiful new baby, and enjoy your baby’s first photo shoot.  Included in your newborn session are family and sibling photos – at no extra charge. These first professional images of your newborn will be cherished forever and I strongly believe mums, dads and siblings need to be in these photos! When younger siblings are visiting the studio, I start the session with family and sibling photos.  After these photos have been captured, there is a wonderful park on our doorstep to entertain young children whilst I create beautiful portraits of the star of the show. Alternatively, it’s a great opportunity for dad/grandma to take them to one of the local coffee shops for a well deserved baby chino!

As a professional service provider and your photographer, I don’t take the responsibility of photographing very young babies lightly.  I’m fully immunised and have booster shots as required to keep your little ones safe. It’s not something everyone thinks about when booking a newborn photographer, but as a new parent, you naturally consider the safety of your newborn.  Trusting a photographer with your most precious little bundle is very important.

I’ve put together an exclusive newborn posers guide. If you would like to receive a copy, please let me know by phone or the contact form and I’ll send it to you – it also includes our newborn photography prices and packages.
