Wooden rustic Digital composite image of a newborn baby girl wrapped in pink

Posted on August 15, 2019


Bailee was just 23 days new when she arrived for her newborn portrait session at my Kallangur studio. What a beautiful little girl she is even if she did make me work for all these precious photographs.

I generally suggest newborn photography sessions are conducted within the first 14 days after baby’s birth however, we all know real life can be unpredictable and this is not always possible. As you can see from this little one’s images – there is no reason to panic! There are a number of things we can do to ensure that we achieve a beautiful gallery for your little one.


When Bailee arrived at her session she was a little unsettled so the decision was made to start with her wrapped in various props. Once wrapped she drifted off to sleep and I was able to capture some beautiful images.

The bowl and wrought iron bed props have fast become favourites amongst my clients since their recent addition to my studio.


Digital composite images have also become a popular choice amongst clients. The process involves photographing the baby alone on a fur or fabric in a ‘posing’ bean bag. That image of the baby is later combined with any one of a number of beautiful digital backgrounds that are available. The below ‘Tulip’ image is one such example.

This style of photography and editing is perfect to create more variety in a gallery for those little ones who may light sleepers, sensitive to touch or are unsettled throughout the session.

I love when the final press of the shutter in a session captures such a beautiful connection. This photograph would have to be my personal favourite from the session! Doesn’t she look peaceful in her parents arms!
