Thank you for your enquiry. It would be an honour to capture the first day’s of your baby’s life. I understand that every session is unique, so please do get in touch if you have something special in mind.

Elle is talented! What I received was more than your run of the mill photographs. I was so smitten with each and every photo that I walked out with the whole portfolio. I recommend her to anyone wanting to capture that special moment that lasts a lifetime.

We returned to Elle after having our first son photographed in 2015. She did an incredible job back then and we were blown away with what she captured with our second son. Nothing is an issue with Elle. Booking is easy, photoshoots are stress free and the hardest part is picking which image to hang first! Our family shots are something we will treasure forever and I would not hesitate in recommending Elle to anyone.

Thankyou Elle for the gorgeous newborn and family photos you did for us. You were so unbelievably patient and made the day as easy and relaxed as it could be. Looking forward to getting more done in the future. x

When is the best time to photography my baby?
Babies are best photographed within the first two 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.
Where will the session be held?
Sessions are always in my home studio in Moonee Ponds, Melbourne where we have access to all the equipment required and the environment can be kept comfortable for everyone.
How long does a newborn session take?
There is no telling how long the session will take but we usually tries to keep it under three hours. The baby is the boss during these sessions so please just remember that there is no hurry. As far as poses/inspiration images go, there is no guarantee that we will get any specific images but we will surely do our best to get the images that are of most importance to you and your family.
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.
When should I book?
It is never too early to book in your newborn session! 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 before the end of their second trimester to avoid missing out. 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.
How long do we have to wait until the images are ready?
Your ordering appointment will be scheduled for approximately two weeks following your session. This session is where you choose and order your images. These will be taken home in printed and digital copies on the day!
Can I just purchase digital images?

All of the images you purchase come with a digital and printed copy. Digital images cannot be bought seperately. Printed images are the best way to archive these beautiful memories and are made for you using high quality materials to ensure they out live us all.

How do I book?
Newborn sessions are booked depending on your due date. For more information or to check availability, please email me here and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
I would love to hear from you, and if you do have any questions at all before booking, please do feel free to give me a call on 0409 549 823 or email at
love Elle xoxo
