Top 10 Newborn Photographers in Perth
You don’t realize the true beauty of a moment until it becomes a mere memory.
So don’t make the mistake of letting your baby’s first days in the world pass without capturing them first.
We’ve listed some of the most popular newborn photographers in Perth, to help you decide what style and package is most suited for photographing your little wonder.
Newborn photographs are an investment for life.
These pictures remain with you as your child grows, and remain still to be carried into the future, to tell a memory or a story of the beginning of a life, to be cherished by numerous generations.
Newborn photographers don’t just preserve a moment, they provide a timeless piece of art. Of all the investments you make through your life, this will be one of the most rewarding.
Choosing your ideal photographer may take some time, so start searching at the beginning of your pregnancy.
Due to high demand, it is best to book within the first or second trimester of pregnancy, in order to get your choice of photographer and the appropriate time frame.
Although newborn photographers are flexible with late and early arrivals, you need to be quick to contact them after the birth. Specialist photographers are usually booked out for 3 to 6 months.
Optimal time for a photo session is within the first two weeks of the birth date. Around 4-14 days, the newborn is flexible enough to be moved into positions, and curled enough for a beautiful shot.
In order to get the perfect picture, you will need to feed your child before the session.
This will keep them asleep through the process. It is also advisable to bring feeding requirements and nappies to the photo shoot.
Here is the list of the top 10 Perth based newborn photographers, and some of the services they offer.
