Canberra newborn photographers recommend booking your shots for when your baby is around 2 weeks old whilst the babies are conveniently (and very cutely) flexible and generally acquiescent. This is when those gorgeous curled-up shots are magically created.

Book your ideal photographer well before your baby is due; start looking even in the first and second trimester. You will be sure to find the right talented studio to create magic for you.
