Newborn Photography

Let’s celebrate your baby’s arrival with a newborn photoshoot

That smell. That skin. Those tiny fingers and toes.

Is there anything more precious than a newborn baby?

Newborn babies live by their own rules, which is why I’ll come to your home for our photography session, and will set-up onsite to create the perfect backdrop for these timeless images. Feel comfortable and relaxed at home, while snuggling with your new bundle of joy.

I’ll let your baby take the lead. If they need to stop for a feed or a change, then that’s what we’ll do. It’s all about making sure the experience is an easy one, so that you can enjoy these special moments together as a family.

Wollongong Family and Newborn Photographer

Let your baby take centre stage.

My newborn photography style is relaxed, with neutral colours and minimal props, to avoid distracting from the main focus – your beautiful new baby. I’ll capture candid moments as well as carefully composed portraits, to tell the story of the relationships and love within your family.

Looking for a Wollongong newborn photographer to capture those fleeting new baby moments?

Highly recommend Rachel & Scribbly Gum Photography. Rachel captured our gorgeous little Violette in a way we couldn’t have imagined! She knows how to take the best shots, with her expertise & professionalism – thanks Rachel we love your work.

6 benefits of an in home newborn photoshoot

Loved capturing memories with Scribbly Gum Photography. My husband and I felt very comfortable in Rachel’s presence and at ease knowing our 2 week old baby Harper was in her safe hands. Happy with our selection of images and would definitely recommend.

The process:

First, we’ll have a consultation chat where we can discuss your needs, and ideas to personalise your photoshoot.

Then, we’ll have the photoshoot in the comfort of your own home, so that you and baby are super relaxed.

Once the photos are ready, we’ll have a viewing appointment where you can select your favourite shots, and decide on printing options.

Finally, I’ll deliver your beautifully presented prints and photos, ready to hang in pride of place on your walls.

How old should bub be for their newborn photoshoot?

Great question! The short answer is – it depends. There are advantages to different ages, I can accommodate any age starting at 1 week old. Most parents opt for 1-3 weeks, so long as everyone is well.

Can we include my partner/ baby’s siblings?

Absolutely! Everyone is welcome.

Can we include our dog?

Of course! We will chat about your dog’s personality to be sure we are keeping bub safe.

Can we have the family portion outside?

We sure can! Let’s chat about any particular locations you have in mind. Some families opt for their garden, others choose another location altogether. One advantage to working with me is being able to personalise your photoshoot.

Can we bundle in a maternity photoshoot/ first birthday photoshoot?

Yes! Be sure to check out Baby’s First Year bundle options.

My home is not Insta- ready. I’m not sure about having a photoshoot there?

That’s more than ok. I have a mobile studio, complete with backdrops!

I don’t want any naked photos of bub. Is that ok?

That’s more than ok. We chat about your preferences before the photoshoot, so on the day we are ready to go!

I don’t think bub’s older sibling will stay still, but I’d love to include them.

Rest assured, I have worked with LOTS of busy toddlers, including my 3 busy boys. Having the photoshoot in your home is one of the main advantages for toddlers, as they can come and go as they please and they are in the comfort of their own space. I also have lots of tricks up my sleeves to help them settle into the photoshoot.

I don’t know what to wear!

I have written an Ebook to help figure out how to put together the family outfits, which you receive a complimentary copy of once you’ve booked your photoshoot. See more about that here.
