Newborn Photography

Capturing the joy of new life

Capturing some of the most precious moments of your little ones fresh new life.

The little hands and feet, fingers and toes. Squeaky yawns, tiny stretches and soft squishy faces. Those surreal moments of excitement, joy and perhaps even a little sleep deprivation as you settle into your new life. These are all such special times that tell the amazing story of your babes introduction into this great big world.

A newborn session with me might be a little different to what you see from the many studio/posed images around. My goal is to keep your little one as relaxed as possible, capturing them in their most natural state. Their expressions, movements, the way they stretch and move, and the way they sleep. It’s all about capturing them in the moment.

Raw. Real. Candid

About Newborn Sessions

Everything you need to know
Timing & Duration

Ideally, your newborn session should be done within 12-14 days while they’re still quite relaxed and reliant on constant sleep. Being baby led, I do not impose time limits on my sessions but they usually take 60-90 minutes. Due to the variability in due dates, I take bookings in advance with a tentative date which we’ll then confirm once Bubs arrives.

Location

Newborn sessions usually take place in your own home where you and your baby are most comfortable. I remember what it was like so soon after my wife and I welcomed our daughter into the world, the last thing we wanted to do was strap her into the car and head out anywhere. Of course, this is completely up to you and we can certainly head outdoors for a beautiful outdoor session as well. Want to rug up in the cold of the mountains? Give bubs a feed on beach with the perfect sunset? Lie around the soft grass at the local national park? Let’s do it.

Safety

The health and safety of your bubs is just as important to me as capturing their perfect little moments. As they have a weak and still developing immune system at such a young age, my hands are always cleaned before sessions and sanitised throughout. My camera, lenses and any props/wraps/blankets are also cleaned after each session to avoid the transfer of any nasties. This also means that I’ll never place or pose your little gem in an unsafe position. Additionally, being a father myself, I’m also always fully up-to-date with my whooping cough and flu vaccinations. 

Investment

When you invest in me as your photographer I value the opportunity to share your special moments with you. There is nothing I hate more than confusing pricing structures and hidden charges which is why I operate with simple fixed fee pricing. Your investment includes my time (during the session and the many hours of post-processing work), all edited digital images and a selection of matte prints.
