How It All Works

When Is The Best Time To Do A Newborn Photography Session

We recommend newborn sessions to be taken within the first 2 weeks of birth (5-14 days old), as this is when newborns are at their most sleepiest and can be positioned more freely. So it’s best to book in your session before your baby arrives. Newborn Sessions take place Monday to Friday.

When you book in your babies’ Newborn Photography Session, we’ll take note of your due date, and ask that you let us know when baby is born so we can confirm the exact date of your session. Sessions can happen after this time, but it would be more likely to have baby snugly wrapped for the entire session, and baby would likely be awake for more of the session too.

To book in your session, fill out the form below, email us, or give us a call. When your session fee is paid, the session will be secured in our calendar.

Where Do The Newborn Photography Sessions Take Place?

Our affordable yet Luxurious Newborn Photography Melbourne sessions are held in our fully equipped studio in Melbourne’s West. The studio is located in Gisborne and has all you need for a comfortable and relaxing photographic session.

We supply everything needed for the newborn shoot, all the backdrops, props, headband and bonnets.  For more information on our custom built studio, head to our Studio Page.

Your Newborn Photography Session

When the day of your session arrives, we like to start the sessions around 9am, and we’ll spend 3-4 hours together. This allows plenty of time for cuddles, feeds and nappy changes as needed.

We like to start with family and sibling photos first, so everyone can relax after and we can focus on your baby for the rest of the session.

You’re our guest, so make yourself at home. You wont be the first to catch up on some sleep during the session, so get comfortable and relaxed. We have a Nespresso Coffee machine and tea available, as well as mineral water, and a microwave.

Seeing Your Newborn Photos For the First Time

Life is busy enough during this early stage, so after a quick break, we’ll view your photos at the Cinematic Reveal and Design Consultation. No need to come back another day to choose your photos.

Projected onto a huge 120” screen, we’ll view a beautiful slideshow of the photos captured, before the Design Consultation, where you’ll select your favourite photographs for purchase, and together, we’ll design your custom products. Its as easy as selecting the photos you love.

The Hard part? You’ll love them all!

Frequently Asked Questions

There ‘s lots of information below to help you make an informed decision, but if a question isn’t answered, please get in touch.

We recommend booking your newborn session soon after your 20 week scan. This will secure your session for the month of your due date as we only take a limited number of bookings a month. Once baby arrives let us know as soon as you can and we will lock in a specific date and time for your session.

Our fully equipped studio is in Melbourne’s West. The studio is located in Gisborne, a stress free 40 minute drive from the CBD, and has all you need for a comfortable and relaxing Newborn Photography Melbourne session. For more information on our custom built studio, head to our Studio Page.

Parent and sibling photographs are always included and encouraged, so make sure to bring the whole family. If you would also like to include grandparents in the photos we are more than happy to have them, please just let us know to make sure we allow enough time for all the photographs.

Newborn Photography Melbourne sessions usually last around 3 hours, the duration varies on how well baby settles, and we like to take things nice and easy, making sure baby is comfortable and allow plenty of time for feeds and cuddles. The Design Consultation happens straight after your photo shoot.

Straight after your session we will sit down and go through all your photos. This is where you get to purchase all the photographs you would like edited ready for your wall art collections and albums or prints. Once full payment is made the turn around times vary for products but usually takes around 4-6 weeks.

The Session Fee is $250 which gives you $250 Print Credit to spend on any of our printed products. We have products to suit every style of home and budget. Clients spend on average between $1000-$3000 on Newborn Photography. More info on our products here.

Ideally Newborn Photography takes place between 7-14 days of age. After this time babies tend to spend more time awake, stretch out more and are slowly getting stronger. As the days go by, the chances increase that we might not be able to do any nude photos, or that there will be more awake photos.

Beautiful photos can still be taken (our oldest Newborn that wasn’t born premature is 67 dasys!), the session will feature more wrapped photos, and awake photos.

You’ll have a thousand things on your mind when your baby is born premature, and none of them will be Newborn Photography. When things start to calm down, let us know, and we can start to plan your session around what works for you.

The ‘ideal timing’ of newborn photography is often more relaxed when it comes to premature babies. We’re always open to things during the session, and are baby lead. We have photographed 90 day old twins born at 24 weeks during a newborn session. They ended up with a beautiful gallery of wrapped photos.

We love to be able to share our work online, whether that’s with you tagged, or with no names. If you don’t want anything shared online, we will respect your wishes 100%.

Digital Files are available for purchase and come with matching matted 8×10″ prints.

It’s very common for babies to have flaky or spotty skin, it’s often a normal part of their growth and will soon pass. With the parents permission, these temporary issues are fixed with our retouching.

Some babies won’t sleep, and as long as they are content, we can capture beautiful photos still. Awake photos have become very popular of late.

Babies get unsettled, which is why we allow such a long time for the sessions. Sometimes they’ll need some extra cuddles to get super sleepy, so the key is to keep things calm and relaxed, and not feel rushed for time. Your baby won’t be the first to be unsettled during their Newborn Photography Melbourne Session.
