Newborn Photography Session

About our lifestyle newborn photography sessions

There is something so magical about those first few weeks after bringing your newborn baby home. Getting to know them and their cute little ways, Settling into routines of sleep, feeding, bathing and just generally staring at them and admiring how adorable they really are! This is what we love to capture in our lifestyle newborn photography sessions. Documenting all the new family interactions and connections in a relaxed way.





Our lifestyle newborn sessions are usually held in the comfort of your home. We find this minimizes disturbances or breaks in routine for the newborn bub and they tend to be more settled. We also recommend the home as that is the best place to capture all the new family interactions.


The best time to schedule the newborn session is usually within the first 2 weeks of returning home from the hospital. This is when bub is at their absolute cutest and also sleepiest which makes the sessions that little bit easier for new parents.


Generally we have found that morning / mid-morning suits Newborn photography sessions, as many new bubs like to sleep again at that time.



As this is a lifestyle session, family interaction is important. So be prepared to be in the photos yourself, not just the baby. This doesn't mean that you have to be fully made-up and styled though. We also absolutely love when your partner and other children are involved in the session too (even pets!)


Session Length:

Newborn session lengths can vary and often depend on how the baby settles. Typically sessions last for about 2 hours.
