Hi, I’m Elle, a paediatric nurse and newborn photographer in Eaglemont, Melbourne. I totally understand the want to freeze every precious memory throughout a child’s entire life. They grow up so quickly!
 
Newborn photographs are the perfect start. 
 
I love to capture the squishy rolls, their little fingers and toes, their gassy smiles, all of their cuteness, and the love and bonding happening between mum and bub – and dads too. 
 
The photography magic happens in the comfort of my beautiful studio. The perfect chance for you to relax and rest after days of visitors, appointments and being on the go. 
 
Your baby will be safe, happy and toasty warmth as we capture all of their beautiful features that make them so special. You will fall in love with this unforgettable experience all over again when you look back at your photos.

how it

WORKS

01.

gather all your information

 This is a HUGE decision. You are going to look back on these photos forever. Your grandkids are going to find them and compare their own baby photos to them. You have to get it right!

See what other photographers offer before making your decision. Do they have newborn safety training? Do you love their photos? Do they guarantee their work and ensure you are happy?

If you don’t know what to look for, use our checklist below.

02.

book in a FREE consultation 

If you are wanting more information before making your decision then please book a consultation with us.

This can be via phone, video call or even in the studio. We would love to welcome you in to see our space and where the magic happens.

You can ask us all your questions, discuss your concerns and ultimately ensure you are making the best decision. 

Here we can really drill down into what you want to capture in these memories.

03.

make it

official

As baby’s often come on their own schedule, we only take a limited number of due dates each month.

Eight to be exact!

So once you have compared photographers (and know we are the best) get your due date in our diary.

If your baby has arrived, don’t stress! We might be able to fit you in, just get in touch ASAP.

04.

let’s start planning!

Now the fun begins!

Whilst you are putting your feet up and relaxing…waiting for bub to arrive let’s start dreaming!

What images do you love? What do you want to do with your photographs? How do you want to enjoy them?

Don’t worry if these questions stress you out, we are here to hold your hand the whole way!

When

Newborn sessions are best done in the first 21 days. The earlier the better! They are sleepy and curly and have all those beautiful newborn features that we have to document. But don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do them after this. If coming into the studio in the first three weeks doesn’t suit you then we will do an older baby session! Your baby might be a bit more alert and not quite as curly but that doesn’t mean we won’t still get beautiful photos of your baby and family.

How

Think that your baby won’t sleep? Or worried they won’t coopperate as well as all the other babies you see on our website? Well, they might not but that doesn’t worry us! Elle is the ultimate baby whisperer. Her expertise with newborn babies makes her one of the most experienced in Melbourne. So whilst it might be your baby that doesn’t sleep, or does their business all over the white blankets, we don’t mind and will still get beautiful photos for your family. It’s our guarantee!

frequently asked

QUESTIONS

xx
When is the best time to photography my baby?

Maternity sessions are done between 32-36 weeks.

Newborns are best photographed within the first 1-3 weeks of life. During this time they are more likely to be nice and sleepy and less likely to be disturbed whilst being curled into gorgeous positions to be photographed. This also mostly avoids any newborn acne that tends to develop after three weeks. Newborn sessions can be done up to 8 weeks of age but be aware that babies may be more alert and may not do all the poses after that 3 week point.

Sitter sessions are best done when your baby has begun sitting up but is not yet crawling. At this age they normally haven’t developed any stranger danger and will give us some gorgeous expresssions.

Cake Smashes can be done at any stage from 11 months to celebrate a first birthday

When should I book?

It is never too early to book in! Because your baby’s birthdate is unpredictable, we will reserve a time frame for you. If you know that you will be induced or have a c-section booked, your session date can be booked in advance. If your baby is going to come when it is ready, we will mark down your due date and expect you to contact her as soon as your baby arrives.

Most of our clients book their sessions during their second trimester. To maintain the high standards and due to  work commitments at the Royal Children’s Hospital, there are only limited sessions available and it is therefore important to book early to save any disappointment.

Despite this, due to the nature of birthdates being unpredictable, we may have some availability if you are nearing the end of your pregnancy or your baby has already been born. Please don’t hesitate to contact us to enquire about this.

Where are the photography sessions held?

Sessions are held in our beautiful studio in Eaglemont Village, Melbourne where we have access to all the equipment required and the environment can be kept comfortable for everyone.

Eaglemont is located just next to Ivanhoe which is about 10km North East of the CBD

Is it possible to have family portraits taken too?

Of course! We always photograph family portraits at the end of the session. You can opt not to have these photographs taken however we will highly encourage it. Your baby will not stay this little for long and it is important to have beautiful keepsakes to remember this time. If you are requesting sibling portraits, these will be done at the beginning of the session so that children can then be taken for a walk to the park or out for lunch whilst the rest of the session is completed.

How long do we have to wait until the images are ready?

Not long because images will be available to view immediately after your session! Whilst baby is being dressed and ready for the trip home, I will prepare your images to be viewed on the big screen where you can choose any that you would like to purchase.

What will my $200 credit give me

Immediately following your session you will have your ordering appointment where you will be able to choose the images you would like to purchase. 

Individual images can be purchased for $195.

Digital Collections start from $895.

Wall art and keepsake items can be purchased with a digital collection and start from $495 

Products are made with the highest quality materials sourced from all over the world and we know you are going to love seeing your beautiful images displayed around your home. 

Can I just purchase digital images?

Absolutely. Once you see your images you will choose a digital file collection of the photographs that you love. Following this you will be able to see, touch and explore all of our products to choose the best way for you and your family to display their photographs.
