First off, congrats for bringing this new life into the world! It’s no easy feat, I have such admiration for what a woman’s body is capable of. When it comes to my newborn sessions, I let your baby take the lead. This is a very relaxed, no-fuss session for you and your bub. We can even include your partner and your big kids too! Indoors, outdoors, it doesn't matter; I’m happy to cater the session to you. 


When & where?

This session is best captured at home or somewhere outdoors on your property (you know I love a sunset sesh)! I recommend between the ages of 5-12 days as this is when babies are sleepiest, more womb like, and therefore easier to manoeuvre and quietly capture - but ultimately, it’s up to you! 

I know what you’re thinking & don’t worry about frantically cleaning up before I arrive! We only need one room or a well-lit ‘nook’ to work with. And besides, I know exactly how messy kids are, my four are continually undoing all my hard work! Don’t stress about your home setting, okay?

How long?

I generally allow 1-hour for newborn shoots. This gives us time for a quick feed if a certain someone starts acting ‘hangry’ and for things like nappy changes for any accidents too.

I use a combination of posed and lifestyle photography, keeping the session as natural as possible.

"...she has all the tips and tricks to keep little ones happy..."

"We have been incredibly lucky to have Nicole photograph our two youngest newborns. She has such a beautiful and gentle nature with newborns and her photos are treasured by our family. Our baby number five was born in 2021 and I knew Nicole would capture perfectly our large and busy family!! As Nicole is a mum of four herself, she has all the tips and tricks to keep little ones happy during family shoots. The photos reflect the love and joy of siblings getting to know their baby brother. We are looking forward to Nicole capturing more memories our family."
