Newborn photography


So if you're on this page you must be looking for a newborn photographer and interested in newborn portraits and the first thing I'd like to say is - huge congratulations, I'm so excited for you. I know you must have a million and one questions in your head, after all this is a very important time and picking the right newborn photographer is key to making sure you get the perfect baby photos. So here is some information on my style of newborn photography & other details to help answer some of the queries you may have.


When is the best time?

Newborn photos are best suited for babies aged between 5-14 days. It's a wonderful way to capture how tiny, curly and sleepy newborn babies are at this age. However I have photographed many older babies, so please don't hesitate to contact me when your baby isn't that tiny anymore. I know by experience, how blurry these first few days/weeks can be and the last thing on your mind, might be booking your photographer.


I do recommend to book your newborn session after your 20 week scan though to avoid disappointment because we book out, sometimes months in advance.



I'm a natural light photographer in Perth that specialise in a more natural style of newborn photography. Although I like to use my gorgeous organic props, wraps and headbands I also love to focus on capturing the tiny little details of your baby, like their nose, hands and ten tiny toes.

I have a range of different props and set ups for both boys and girls to create gorgeous images for you to treasure for a lifetime.

I will never pose your baby in a position they don't feel comfortable in and let your baby lead the session.



The studio is kept nice and warm, ensuring baby is comfortable at all times. Light refreshments are offered, with a selection of tea, coffee and water available for your Family.

Newborn nappies and wipes are provided for your time with me, as well as a change table and a comfortable feeding chair or couch for those who wish to feed in comfort…or fall asleep easily while I am capturing beautiful images of your baby.

Clothing family photos
Nothing is more important to me than you being completely comfortable when you are in my company. The clothes you wear should be something you love, something that makes you feel beautiful.


Light neutral colours always work really well. If you would like to include a colour, it is best to pick just one or two and work around that, just try not to all wear the same thing or you may potentially clash. Or you may keep it very simple with wearing a white or black singlet and a tshirt in the same colour for dad. If I have lost you here, let's chat further about wardrobe options prior to your session.


When you invest in me as your family's photographer, I truly value this opportunity and aim to provide an enjoyable experience, images that reflect my creativity and finished products that protect and display your stunning portraits for many years to come. I offer an extensive range of beautiful boutique products.
