Newborn Photography EXPERIENCE

Newborn photography sessions are recommended 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. You can choose from studio prop images to lifestyle natural and in-home photography sessions. We will work on the style you choose to create your very own visual story.

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.

Photography Locations

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.

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.

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 pallet 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 your 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. Again all of a neutral pallet

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

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. I will generally move to the lifestyle set for family images and more baby posing. If your newborn 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.

Mini newborn sessions

Mini newborn sessions are a great way to capture your newborn baby in a short time frame with images all about your baby.


 Mini sessions are 1 hour and gives you a choice of either fully wrapped prop images or lifestyle images with no props.  


Whilst mini sessions are all about the baby, siblings are always welcome for one or two images of family and the rest of baby.


For a full selection of family & baby images this would need to be booked under the main newborn session.

As mini sessions are on a tight time frame I ask that you read and follow the newborn prep guide which will be sent before any newborn session.
