Newborn Photography

Your baby is here and your heart has grown. Newborn photography sessions are so important and valuable.

The first two weeks of having a newborn are a complete blur, your new tiny person is changing daily and they will never be that small again. I love to capture those tiny details and family connections.

I recommended a newborn shoot generally when baby is 7-21 days old, this is because they are bendy and flexible to help with the super cute squishy poses. Older babies are also able to be photographed but you may not get the same images in props however we always get stunning images regardless.

Booking way ahead of time is essential for newborn images, as soon as you have a due date. This is so I have the flexibility to change dates to suit when baby has arrived.

Newborn Studio

Newborn photography sessions are generally held in my beautiful studio space in my home on the Gold Coast which has a lovely warm and inviting atmosphere.

My studio is clean, covid safe and warm for your little VIP

The advantage of the studio is the perfect lighting all year round plus no need to worry about the weather.

Baby photography sessions usually start around 10 am and can last around 2-3 hours.

My style is very neutral and classic

Siblings and partners always welcome

Newborn Outdoors

Newborn photography sessions don’t have to be in the studio.

We are so blessed here on the Gold Coast to have so many beautiful scenes from miles of beautiful sandy beaches, mountains, fields, creeks and many more.

We will talk through the location you would like to have your newborn photography session, I am always up for new places to try but happy to make suggestions as I do have a few favourite spots up my sleeve.

Outdoor sessions are held at sunset, depending on the time of year they can start at 4.30 in the winter or 6pm in the summer.

Outdoor sessions are generally up to 1 hour.

I can bring some wraps and outfits but no props, these are more of a natural lifestyle look.

Styling & Posing

I have over 30 stunning dresses from all over the world ranging different sizes or one size fits all. There is a variety of styles and colours however I do love a neutral style so that will be mainly what you will see. Once your booking is confirmed you will receive exclusive access to the online viewing gallery where you will choose your favourites for me to bring on location or you have the whole wardrobe for your choosing if you are at the studio.

If your baby is having a studio session I provide all wraps, bonnets, headbands etc that baby will need. Whites, creams and greys to match my neutral tones.

Full newborn sessions can take between 2-3 hours and capture a selection of prop posed baby images and lifestyle images.

Siblings and partners welcome

Newborn session fees begin at $200

During the session we will do some posing on the baby beanbag and if baby is happy we will go for bucket and bed props. Please keep in mind each session is different due to how baby is feeling on the day. If your Newborn photography shoot is outdoors I will also bring a few wraps but no props such as wooden buckets etc. Newborn outdoor is more relaxed and natural.

Devina’s caring and professional nature made it so easy for our newborn’s shoot. She welcomed us into her beautiful (and Covid safe) studio where we could relax while she worked her magic. These precious images she captured will be treasured by our family for a lifetime. We were really happy with the whole process and highly recommend Devina.

Amazing attention to detail and beautiful results. I’m not the best when it comes to having my photo taken and can feel so uncomfortable however Devina makes you feel comfortable and confident the whole time. The service is some of the best I have ever received and she will go above and beyond to make sure you’re happy. A true professional in every sense who takes your every need into account.

Such an amazing photographer! I absolutely loved how hands on and good she was with my newborn. Devina is very friendly and professional. 10/10 would recommend to friends and family.

I was having a hard time finding a photographer for both maternity shoot and newborn shoot as there are many to choose from but I don’t want a session that I feel rushed and just another random client. Lucky enough I found Devina. I feel valued. She was very patient for both the maternity and newborn shoot. My little familiar very relaxed the entire time. She is also very creative to come up with many ideas, looks and poses which are really beautiful and classic, looks that are timeless. In addition, her range of wardrobe for female client is beautiful and has lots to choose from, you need not worry for an outfit change.

Recent did a newborn family photo shoot with Devina. She was so professional and such a pleasure to work with both kids were so comfortable around her. We absolutely loved the images it was really had to pick as they were all so beautiful. I would highly recommend Wild River Photography.
