Having a newborn or a young baby in your life is such a gift and treasure. Each day they are doing something different, learning new things and displaying new expressions. But here lies the problem…They grow up way too fast!
Before you know it they are toddlers and you’ve missed out on capturing those important moments.
Our newborn and baby photography sessions are your peace of mind. All those beautiful things you love about your baby will be forever there for you to remember.
If you have older children then you probably already know the way they interact with their younger siblings is priceless. Some of the most beautiful photographs I take for families are the moments between an older child and a newborn or baby. You don’t want to miss out on us photographing this.
Best Times To Photograph A Babies First Year
For Newborn Photography the best time to book your session is within the first two weeks of your baby’s birth. The time just before and after birth can be very hectic so ideally you would like to book a tentative date for your newborn session a few months in advance. Book Now.
The best time to photograph your baby in their first year is at 3-4 months (they SMILE and can hold their heads up), 6-7 months (they can sit up, maybe crawling and are a lot more interactive) and their first birthday (crawling, maybe walking and Hey, it’s their BIRTHDAY!!!)
A baby session can take 60-90 minutes depending on how many other family member attend. A newborn session can take 2-4 hours and all depends on how restless your little bub is and how many times they need to get fed.
What About Maternity Photos?
We don’t want you missing out on photos of your beautiful bump. The best time to photograph your pregnancy is when you are 7-8 months pregnant.
Finally, after all of our session types, we get you to come in approximately one week later to view your beautiful images and make your selections and place your order.
You can read all about each step of your portrait booking on our portrait experience page.
Our newborn photography and baby photography sessions are all carried out in our studio space in Bentleigh East, Melbourne.
