We encourage families to book their newborn photography session as early as possible to ensure availability. Also, We are more than happy to travel to your home to photograph these images.

Newborn Photography FAQs

The best way to choose a Newborn Photographer is to find one who can really capture the personality of your little one.

Because our fine art photography style captures beautiful moments with babies as they rest peacefully, Shmily Photography is known as the favourite Newborn  Photography studio in Melbourne!

 We find Newborn Photography shoots work best when babies are 7-15 days old. 

This is because the positions they sleep in and the poses they adopt are uniquely sweet and cuddly – creating the most adorable photographs ever! 

Yes, sibling and family photos are included in our package – FREE of additional fees!

Just picture a happy snap of your family and friends, all crowded into one of  our Newborn Photography sessions!

At Shmily Photography, we love it when you bring the whole gang! It makes for  such a fun-filled and memorable day. We look forward to seeing you all on the day.

It depends on babies. We will never rush a photo session and are happy to spend as  much time as we need. The average session time is about 2 hours.

When it comes to scheduling a photo session with a baby, it’s important to keep in mind that their needs may differ from those of older children or adults. One crucial consideration is feeding. Depending on the age of the baby, they may need to eat frequently, so it’s a good idea to bring along baby formula and food to the session.

Here are our top tips on how to prepare for your Newborn  Photography shoot: 

  •  We recommend bringing a dummy so your baby stays happy, restful and relaxed. 
  • Give your baby a feed before the photo session so they are happy and full.
  • Light colour outfits for parents and siblings would be preferred.
  • We will provide everything we need for the Newborn Photography shoot,  including props and wraps.
