All you need to know before booking your newborn or baby lifestyle photography session
Newborn Photography Melbourne
Your Newborn Session
I recommend having your newborn photographed during the first 1-2 weeks of life, if you would like to get those sleepy curled up photos of your baby. After that time your baby will be more alert and sleeping photos become harder to achieve. For smiling photos I recommend to book your session from 4 months of age and sitting baby photos from 8 months. However, I love to photograph babies at any age. The first year is such a special time and over with the blink of an eye.
Booking your session
In order to ensure you secure a booking for your newborn, it is important to contact to secure your date while you are still pregnant. I offer very limited spots and often book out months in advance. Please book in early to avoid disappointment.
The ideal place for your newborn session is the comfort of your own home. It is where most of my sessions take place, as this will give you wonderful memories of this exact time in your life! If you feel your home isn't suitable or you would prefer another option, outdoor sunset sessions can be an alternative. I have some beautiful spots all around Melbourne I can recommend.
Please ensure your home is nice and warm, the warmer the house, the more sleepy your baby will be, which will help with the flow of your session. Try your best to feed your baby before I arrive, if that doesn't fit within your feeding routine, please don't stress, I always leave extra time for your newborn session for this reason. More importantly try to slow down and relax for your sessions, as babies tend to pick up on your stress levels.
