With newborn photography, preserve the moments that make them who they are.

Before they become too old to coo and giggle innocently at all your best dad jokes, capture them in their essence; selecting only the finest Adelaide-based photographers.

When you remember a wedding or milestone moment, it’s natural to take out the albums and reminisce.

Every important journey should be documented, and that’s no different for your child’s.

So capture the momentous and key moment, of the start of their life.

Because newborn photographers are in high demand, it is important to book a session in the first or second trimester.

Photographers specialising in newborns are often booked out for 3 to 6 months; so delaying it will cost you your choice of photographer and optimal time period.

Newborn photographers usually allow some flexibility with the date, due to late and early arrivals.

However, it is essential that you inform them of the birth within the first 2 or 3 days of the child’s life.

If you wait too long, you risk missing the optimal time for a photo shoot; that is, around 4-14 days, whilst your child is curled and easy to position.

Mothers are usually told to feed their children prior to the session, in order to keep them asleep during the photo shoot.

Extra props and sentimental pieces are usually accepted in the shots.

Here is our list of the top 10 newborn photographers in and around Adelaide.
