Sydney Newborn Photography What to Expect - Newborn

Before your session

  • Select a package, complete a Client Agreement and pay a deposit to secure your session

  • A confirmation email will be sent once your deposit has been paid

  • Your session date and time will be locked in once your baby arrives

  • Please email or text to advise your baby has arrived within 24-48 hours of their birth

  • Read over this preparation guide the day before your session

  • Give baby a warm bath the morning of your session (if possible)

  • Give a feed either at home before you leave or once you arrive at the studio

  • For ‘in-home’ sessions, please allow a space for set up and turn your heating on if possible

  • Bring your nappy bag, spare bottles, a dummy (even if your baby doesn't take one, please bring along).

During your session


  • Relax! Having a newborn is tiring, so I encourage you to sit back, relax and enjoy the session

  • Water and light snacks are available during your session

  • Family and sibling poses are done first. Siblings are the responsibility of parents

  • Newborn sessions can take between 2-3 hours. Sometimes more if your baby needs a few extra cuddles or a top up feed during the session

  • The studio is full of beautiful props, blankets, wraps, bonnets, headbands etc. You are welcome to choose your favourite colours and props once you arrive.

  • Even if your child doesn't normally take a dummy, it is handy to have at the session to settle them and may be needed to achieve some of the poses.
