Time passes far too fast to allow all the details and happenings to sink in. Luckily, with the miracle of photography, we are able to keep a few precious moments alive for more than just a lifetime. Let these professional and experienced newborn photographers capture your little bundle of joy.

Everything special and unique about your newborn, from their small and curled little bodies, to their tiny little fingers and toes, will be celebrated through imagery particular to your gem. The listed photographers have the ability to properly apply a chosen aesthetic style to the natural form and character of the baby.

The best time to photograph a newborn is within the first two weeks of the birth. Photographers will usually put it around 4-14 days, while the child is flexible and curled in fetal position. In order to get your choice of photographer and the appropriate time frame, book in the first or second trimester of your pregnancy.

Specialist photographers are high in demand and usually booked out for about 3 to 6 months. Once you have a confirmed booking, you don’t need to worry about the exact date of birth, as photographers allow a time frame for late and early arrivals. So long as you contact them within 2 days to inform them of the birth, you should have no issues.

On the day of the session, mothers are advised to feed their newborns prior to arriving, in order to have them asleep during the session.  They should also bring appropriate feeding and toilet arrangements. Lastly, although props are provided in the in-studio shoots, parents are free to bring in sentimental pieces and props.

Without further ado, here’s are the Editor’s Choice top 10 newborn photographers in Hobart.
