The beginning of your child’s life is something to treasure, so make sure you pick the right photographer to capture your newborn’s first moments.

Whether you prefer a glamorous setup, the playful dress-up, or the nuanced and minimalist shoot, we have something you suit what you desire in our top 10, highly sought after newborn photographers in Sydney.

As you hold your little bundle of joy, you can only imagine where life will take them.

But, for when life moves on, don’t forget to preserve the first moments before it all begun. Professional photography is the perfect way to welcome your child into the world, and these Sydney based photographers ensure that it is done with style and panache.

Located in the Sydney district, these esteemed and experienced newborn photographers are ready to work out the best set and deal to suit you.

Expectant mothers are encouraged to book photo sessions in their first or second trimester, in order to minimize stress and reserve a spot.

Photographers specialising in newborns are often booked 3-6 months in advance, so don’t make the mistake of coming in late.

Also, keep in mind that the ideal time to photograph newborns is within the first two weeks of the birth.

Professionals roughly pencil it around the 4-14 day mark; while the newborns are flexible and perfectly curled.

Photographers will recommend feeding your child before the session to get them sleepy and serene for the shoot.

Feeding requirements and nappies should be brought as a safety measure.

Here is the list of the top 10 Sydney based newborn photographers, and some of the services they offer.
