When should I schedule my newborn photo session?

The key to having a successful newborn photo shoot and achieving those “sleepy, curled up poses" is to have me photograph your newborn within the first 10 days of life. Newborns tend to sleep less and are difficult to “curl up" and pose once they reach the 10 day mark. That being said, I have photographed some stunning images of newborns and babies at later stages, up to a month old.

How far in advance should I schedule my newborn photo session?

I encourage families to book their newborn photo session at least a minimum of a month before the baby is due. Your “due date" will be placed on my calendar and I will be looking forward to hearing from you just as soon as the baby is born. Typically the Dad will contact the studio within a day of the birth to schedule the newborn session.

What should I bring?

If you can, bring a dummy/pacifier with you. If you don' t have one I have some in the studio (fully steriised) that I will use if I feel it is necessary. Even if you haven't used one before, using one just for the few hours session that I'm posing him/her usually really helps.

Please bring all the necessities for feeding, changing etc. During your session you will have plenty of time for feeding and changing as I will not rush you or your baby. A belly full of milk and a warm room usually helps the baby settle so that I can pose them.

Do I need to bring in props, like hats or baskets, to use during the session?

Only if there is something specific you would like to use. I have a number of props to use during the sessions.


I am happy to photography your newborn with their older brother or sister at no extra charge. Siblings must be discussed at the time of booking.

The Shoot

There is no guarantee on any outcome as babies are unpredictable and cannot be forced to perform! Every effort will be made to provide you with up to 25 images. Due to the unpredictable nature of newborns, no guarantee can be given, however.
