The best time to hold a newborn photo shoot is when your baby is under 12 days old.  After this babies are a little harder to settle as they are becoming more aware of their surroundings and things like milk acne, rashes, etc can start to show

You can book a tentative date and time for your newborn photo shoot any time during your pregnancy. Once your baby is born, you can contact us to adjust your booking to the best possible day and time that suits

If your baby has already arrived, we suggest to contact us a soon as possible to schedule a photography date to capture the stage best suited to your baby’s age

Weekday appointments book up about 2 weeks in advance and for Saturdays and school holidays about 4 – 6 weeks.  We suggest to book as early as possible to secure the best possible date and time for you

Many new mums want to also have a pregnancy photo shoot before their baby arrives to document this amazing experience.  These are normally held around the 30-32 weeks while your baby is still sitting high and you are at your best.  There are combined pregnancy and newborn photo shoot options available.  Please contact us to find out more

For the perfect newborn photography, the best time is in the first 6 – 12 days after birth.

At around 2-3 months babies are alert, attentive and are better at controlling their facial muscles.  This stage is great if you have missed the newborn phase to have some portraits made.

At around 6 months, babies are giving great smiles and are generally able to push up when on the floor and interact with their parents.  These are important milestones to capture.

The 1st birthday is a great time to celebrate with a cake smash and to create some amazing images as they crawl and maybe even take their first steps into being a toddler!

There’s no set time.  Your photo shoot can be as long or as short as needed for us to create the images you wish to have made.  Generally for newborns its around 2 – 4 hours to allow plenty of time for cuddles, feeding and photography.  While for older babies, it can be 1 – 2 hours

Our Boutique studio is based in Carrum Downs and is close to numerous freeways for your convenience.  Your photo shoot can be held here in our fully equipped, comfortable and warm studio, or at your home or an outdoor location during the summer months.  We will discuss all your options at your planning consultation
