Capture the little details of your newborn, from their tiny toes and their chubby cheeks to the soft little rolls and curled fingers, and see them as such, just as clearly as the day they first came into the world.

Specialist newborn photographers can help preserve these memories for you, tailoring it to suit your liking.

To further assist you, we’ve compiled a list of professional newborn photographers in the area.

Our moments and milestones pass in a blink of an eye, and the sweetest moments are suddenly nothing but faded memories. Newborn photography attempts to turn some of those very fragile and fleeting seconds and turn them into lifelong memories and precious heirlooms to be passed down. We can photograph the times and people that count. Newborn photographers come in a wide array of styles, and some will definitely suit you better than others.

To begin, make sure to do your research – here is where we come in handy!

If you are thinking of putting off booking a photographer till the last second, think again! Newborn photographers are busy throughout the year and are often booked out for 3 to 6 months. Hence, for the sake of getting your preferred photographer, and the ideal time frame, book in the first or second trimester of pregnancy. Your photographer will most definitely give you some room to move in regards to the birth date.

Newborn photographers will generally accommodate for late and early arrivals, as long as they are informed about the birth within 48 hours of the arrival.

Once your child is born, and you have informed your photographer, they will ask you to come in somewhere during the 4-14 day mark of your child’s birth.

This is the ideal time for photographing newborns, as most newborn photographers will tell you , because the newborn are still in their natural, curled foetal position.

Now that the booking has been made and you are ready to go in, remember to feed your newborn before the photo shoot, so that they can doze off and remain asleep through the session.

Mothers are also advised to make feeding and toilet arrangements.
