Welcome! I’m delighted that you are considering booking a Newborn Session. It is an honour to be able to photograph newborn babies at a time when parents have so much pride in their new baby and emotions are raw. Capturing the connection between parents and their babies just as they are getting to know them, is especially rewarding. I hope that your session will be a time when you slow down and feel especially proud of the amazing miracle that you’ve brought into the world.
I love beautiful light, simplicity and neutral, calming textures and tones and I love working with babies. Each child is unique and perfectly formed just as they are — from their tiny lashes to their precious little fingers and toes. Newborn portraiture is aimed at capturing these all-too-fleeting details.
Sessions are easy-going even if your little one isn’t. Patience and awe accompany the time spent capturing your brand new baby. The end result: images that celebrate life and are artistically refined for you to treasure as a keepsake.
Ideally, newborn sessions should take place within your baby’s first 10 days while they are still sleepy and curl up naturally. Sessions typically last 2-3 hours to accommodate feeding, changing and the time it takes to settle baby.
My studio is perfect for mums and dads who don’t feel up to preparing their home for a photo session or who would like a well-lit, calm and peaceful environment to escape to for their baby’s first photo session. Everything is set up for a newborn – I have a posing beanbag designed especially for newborn portraiture as well as a range of blankets, backdrops, props, wraps, and lovely things crafted especially for newborns.
I switched to studio lighting 3 years ago and this has helped speed up my workflow while ensuring consistent results.
Preparing for Your Newborn Session:
I will provide you with a simple to-do checklist and info sheet about what to expect as soon as your session is booked.
The session fee and client contract are required to reserve your session. The fee is non-refundable but you may transfer it to another date due to the unpredictable nature of birth and newborn babies. There are other milestones to capture and sessions can also be held at 4 months, 7 months and one year.
The session fee covers pre-session consultation (optional), the session itself, the photographer’s time and talent, and beautifully retouched images delivered to a secure, online gallery within 2-4 weeks of your session.

A laid-back family session at one of my favourite locations close to home. Nicole wanted to order prints for Christmas and we managed to get them to her just in time. I love capturing families outdoors – these sessions are always fun for kids, and dads don’t seem to mind them either.
Pregnancy and newborn photography go hand in hand so I would love to create unique and memorable images of this fleeting stage for you to cherish. You and your partner (or family) will love the experience of having this special time documented with a fun, easy session.
I have a range of maternity dresses in my studio wardrobe that you are welcome to make use of during your session.
Fill in the quick contact form or contact Lynn directly on firstname.lastname@example.org or 0400 792 861 to discuss your options. I look forward to hearing from you!

It’s always wonderful to see families return for baby number 2 (or 3…). This mum first came to visit when her baby girl was a wee little one. She totally stole the show with her sweet nature and gorgeous smile.
Her baby brother, slept soundly throughout most of the session. Super easy and adorably cute too – especially in the knitted outfit that had just arrived in my studio. Altogether, a lovely session with this adorable family.
I last saw this gorgeous little baby girl when she was just a few days old. Oh my, so much happens between their first few days and eleven months! Getting to know a baby in their first few days – sometimes before their nearest and dearest – makes me feel especially connected to each little babe. I love it when clients stay in touch and share updates about their baby’s growth and developments. Photographing Estelle just shy of her 1st birthday was a wonderful way to celebrate all the joy she has brought to her family.
Mum warned me that she was on the move – and gaining speed – so I knew it would be a challenge keeping up with her. Mum was right of course. But I like a challenge!
And those auburn curls! Aren’t they just to die for…
