Baby/Newborn Photography –
Melbourne & Macedon Ranges

Your baby will continue to grow, and you won’t be able to stop your little human from growing everyday. The crawling will start, then comes the walking and running around…

You’d be thinking to yourself and wondering: “Where did my baby go?”

What you can do, though, is freeze those first weeks of earthside with a bespoke newborn session.

Getting professional photos of your baby will help you share their story.

These photos are so much more than just those little fingers and toes.

“Madeleine was amazing at capturing the pure joy in Charli’s newborn photos. I always feel awkward getting my photo taken but Madeleine put me at ease and didn’t rush things when Charli was crying.

I love our newborn photos and I’m so glad we have beautiful family photos as getting good quality shots during the newborn phase is hard.

I have known Madeleine for years as she was the photographer for our wedding and when it came time to choosing someone to take our maternity and newborn photos it was an easy choice.”

– Maryanne

“I was definitely nervous pre-shoot, especially because our baby was having an ‘unsettled’ morning, but Maddie made us feel so comfortable and was so patient during the whole shoot.

Maddie managed to get some absolutely beautiful shots in between our babys unsettled moments, which I didn’t think were possible!

I would highly recommend Maddie to anyone wanting to capture these special family moments. I’m going to cherish these beautiful family photos forever! I can’t thank her enough.”

– Yvette

“We were over the moon with Madeleine’s photos of our newborn baby Ned and our family.

Madeleine instantly made everyone feel at ease and made the whole experience enjoyable.

My 4 year old keeps asking when Maddy is coming back!! Madeleine was so patient and had such a gentle touch that Ned slept through the whole thing which enabled these precious moments to be captured in a natural and creative way. Thank you Madeleine these photos will be cherished forever.”

– Joanna

“Maddy captured the most beautiful candid photos of our newborn and family. She was sooo patient and kind and we all felt very calm and natural in front of the camera. We love her use of natural light!

Every image is exceptional, which makes it very hard for us to choose our favourites.

Highly recommend!”

How far in advance should I book my newborn session?

It’s recommended that you book your newborn session as soon as you have your due date.

A limited amount of newborn sessions are available per week to allow for those that arrive early/late and any reschedules.

Be sure to book early to secure your date!

When is the best time to photograph my newborn?

I’d say within the first two weeks (ideally between 5-12 days old) in order to get the best out of your session.

In saying this, I’ve also been lucky enough to photograph babies that are a little older than this! Sometimes those first few weeks are just not doable! So within the first month or two are also fine.

What will I need to have ready for the newborn session?

A nice clear space next to a window where it can fit a posing beanbag and my equipment for the session. It’s important to have natual light coming in if you want the best results. It can either be the lounge room or the bedroom if you have some space in there.

I’ve decided to use the bedroom for the newborn session, what now?

Please have the bed made and have any clutter removed from the bedside tables.

This will make the experience more enjoyable for you and your bub if this is done prior to the session.

How long do the newborn sessions go for?

It can go up to 2 hours (some may be shorter, while others may need the entire 2 hours, just depending on the little one!). Please allow at least 2 hours for your newborn session.

The goal of the session is to get a variety of portraits of your little one; solo, with siblings, and with parents as a family unit. This session time allows for lots of comforting, cuddling and changing hence why it can seem a bit long.

Can I invite any visitors over for the newborn session?

To ensure the newborn session run smoothly, I kindly ask that you don’t schedule any visitors, appointments or commitments within this time.

“We cannot thank Madeleine enough for taking some of the most beautiful newborn photos of our little girl.

They were so natural and it was nice to be able to do them in our own home.

We highly recommend anyone looking for newborn photos to contact Madeleine as she is absolutely amazing at what she does!”
