Capture your child’s beauty and innocence with the wonder of photography.

Newborn photographers are high in demand, which is why – for the sake of getting your choice of photographer and desired time frame – you should start enquiring within the first or second trimester of your pregnancy.

This is because specialist photographers are often booked out about 3 to 6 months.

Photographers are flexible about dates, in case of late and early arrivals, but require contact within 2 to 3 days of the birth.

The prime time for a newborn photo shoot is within the first two weeks of the birth; professionals claim that around 4-14 days is ideal, as the newborn is malleable to position and curled as desired.

It is advised that you feed the baby before the session in order to put them to sleep, and keep them asleep through the shoot.

Arrangements for feeding and extra nappies should be on hand.

As long as you have checked through everything, here’s are the top 10 newborn photographers in Brisbane.

Conclusion

You should consider booking your newborn photography sessions around the expected arrival of the baby. Many photographers in Brisbane and the surrounding areas are accommodating should the stork arrive earlier or later than anticipated. Babies change so much in the first year, so your newborn session should be about two weeks after birth. Get ready to create the first framed picture for your living room wall. It will set the stage for more fabulous photos as your family grows.
