Photographing your newborn baby is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Your baby is only that little once and you have a very limited time frame to get the photos taken because newborns change almost every day.

The fingers, toes, eyelashes and all other beautiful features will change as each day passes by.

For you to capture such special moments where your tiny little bundle of joy is fresh into the world, curled up and sleeping, you will need to act fast and invest in a professional photographer.

You don’t want to hire someone that will do a shoddy work because you can’t re-do those precious first moments of your baby’s life once they disappear.

Working with a professionally trained newborn photographer is more ideal because she will be able to pay close attention to every little detail right down to the position of your baby’s hands, lips and feet.

Every part of the session and image will be carefully planned so as to ensure the best portraits as possible. Professional photographers are also trained and knowledgeable in holding and posing newborn babies safely.

They make sure that babies are safe, comfortable and all their needs are well taken care of throughout the session.

Furthermore, hiring a professional newborn photographer means access to good equipment, amazing prop collection and presets/editing to enhance the images. So, you are more confident that your baby’s photos will turn out great.

Therefore, finding an experienced and well-trained newborn photographer should be your top most priority if at all you want those stunning images that you and your family will cherish for generations.

Fortunately, we have many talented and very creative photographers here in Melbourne. If you are located in the beautiful Mornington Peninsula, then the following top 10 newborn photographers can help you immortalise your sweet little pumpkin’s first precious moments.
