Point Cook Newborn Photographer

The idea of getting everyone dressed, fed and out of the house in a timely manner in the first week after having a baby can be a pretty daunting thought, especially as it’s often the first outing a lot of my clients will make after getting home from the hospital. Knowing how stressful it can be, it’s important to me that your newborn photography experience is as relaxed and stressfree as possible.

Having worked closely with hundreds of mamas, I’ve stockpiled a lot of tips and tricks that I pass onto my clients to help them prepare and feel confident about travelling to a studio. And once my clients are armed with this knowledge, they turn into newborn mama travelling superstars, and I feel honoured to have had clients travel over 90 minutes each way (from as far as Ballarat, Geelong and east Melbourne) for their newborn session.

But the big secret is that I give my clients a three hour window to arrive at the studio. This gives them plenty of time in the morning to feed, pack and arrive at my studio without worrying about being late. I also encourage my clients to pack the clothes they want to wear during the photos (and their makeup) and finish getting ready here.

Whether you arrive in your PJs or fully dressed and ready to rock and roll, you’ll get a big hug from me as soon as you walk in the door!

And sometimes, my clients will even trust me to look after their little one while they go get a coffee.

How absolutely incredible is that? ♥ I’m not sure Oscar loved this little glimpse into the future, but I kinda did!
