ALL ABOUT YOUR
Welcoming a new baby into your family is one of life's most precious moments.
It's a journey that is so fleeting - one moment they are so tiny and small and the next they have grown into independent little people.
While I may not be able to keep your baby small enough to hold in your arms forever, I can capture them so you can relive these beautiful days for years to come.
MY WORK IS BEST DESCRIBED AS
As a Melbourne newborn photographer, with over 15 years of experience capturing hundreds of babies just like yours, you'll know you're in good hands.
Calm and relaxed and being a mother myself, let me welcome you into my studio and capture this beautiful time. Well known for my signature classic style, these images will become some of your favourites and treasured for a lifetime.
All sessions are without time limits so you can fully relax into the situation, feed your baby as needed and rest assured that we’ll capture perfect shots of your little one.
Collections include digital files so you can print your favourites and share on socials with your family and friends.
Lock in your session now based on your estimated due date and easily move it in case your little one decides to show up early or late.
Take advantage of my growing collection of stunning wraps, blankets and neutral outfits, taking the guesswork out of your shoot prep.
We had such a lovely experience working with Louise. From the relaxed and enjoyable photography session with our newborn daughter to the beautiful packaging and products - we can’t recommend her enough!

Your session fee is payable upon booking and includes the time it takes to capture
and process your images at the highest standard.
This fee is separate from your choice of collection. You are investing in over 15 years of photographic experience, my signature style and camera expertise.
Three collections are available and include digital files. Payment plans are available if required.
Where do sessions take place?
All newborn sessions are held at my beautiful natural light studio located in Doreen, Melbourne.
WHAT IS THE BEST AGE FOR NEWBORN PHOTOS?
The best age for sleepy newborn photos would have to be around 2-3 weeks of age. Babies at this age are still very sleepy and easy to handle and pose without waking.
In saying that, I believe babies are beautiful no matter what their age, so please contact me to book your session if you feel having it scheduled later would suit best. Babies between 1-3+ months are gorgeous too and we may even capture some of those first smiles!
My BABY HAS ALREADY BEEN BORN, CAN YOU FIT US IN?
HOW DO I BOOK?
If your baby has already been born or you feel having your session scheduled once your baby is a little older is best, just contact me as soon as you can as I may be able to fit you in depending on my schedule or suggest another reputable photographer.
It’s easy - just fill out my enquiry form below and I will be in touch.
For newborn sessions we use you due date as a guide to make a tentative session date in my schedule. This is then changed to suit once your baby arrives.
The session fee is the only payment requirement upon booking - this gets us started and confirms your date.
To ensure I offer the best service to my clients a limit of only 4-6 bookings per month applies, so please try and book your session as soon as possible.
ARE SIBLING AND FAMILY PHOTOS inCLUDED?
Absolutely! Sibling and or parent photos are included in all my sessions at no extra charge.
what do we bring and what should we wear?
Upon booking clients will receive a detailed welcome guide with information on what to bring, what to wear and the studio address. Filled with tips and advice you will feel ready and confident for your session.
How long do sessions take?
My newborn sessions have no time limits so you can fully relax and feed your baby as needed. As a guide they generally take 2+ hours.
We were so happy with our experience when Sophie was a newborn, so when we had our second baby on the way there was never any doubt that we wanted to return again for Noah’s photos.
Once again you’ve done an incredible job and captured beautiful images that will become such precious memories of this very special time in our lives. We are so grateful and will treasure them forever.
