Auckland newborn photographer

The best time to book our talented Auckland newborn photographer would be in your babies first two weeks, ideally the first 10 days. The younger a baby is, the more relaxed and sleepy they’ll be, which allows our professional Auckland newborn photographer's greater scope to achieve artistic poses.

Newborn photography sessions can last up 2.5 hours, so we advise a tentative booking well in advance to avoid disappointment. If your baby arrives earlier or later we understand this and will always make time for your baby photos.

Before your newborn portrait photography session, we advise families to feed their baby two hours prior, then plan to feed again as soon as you arrive. It's really important to keep your baby awake 1-2 hours before your newborn photoshoot, this will ensure we have a sleeping newborn that can be easily posed and settled. Dressing your baby in loose, easy to remove clothing makes it easy for us to undress and keep your little one asleep. The room temperature will be quite warm to keep your baby asleep, so please bring light clothing.

With over 7 years of experience working with newborn babies and kids Milk Photography Studio are well accustomed to the nerves new parents can feel before their newborn photography experience. With this in mind, we'll make sure the family photography session runs smoothly, you can feel relaxed and confident your precious little ones are in safe loving hands. If it's easier we can take the newborn photos in your home, some people feel more relaxed and comfortable this way. Contact us about this before we book your session.

You will have full access to all our beautiful props during your newborn portrait session. We like to keep things very simple and always open to your ideas, do let us know if you have any requests in advance. If other children and siblings will be in this photography session we advise that all family photographs are first, followed by siblings. Children and toddlers tend to have a short attention span so it's advised a parent takes the children or toddler away to the park or shops after this. The less distraction in the photography studio the better, this also means less chance of your newborn waking.
