Newborn Sessions

Being a new mum is an exciting, confusing, tiring, sometimes overwhelming and very busy time! But it is also one of the most divine experiences in the whole world! It is Little Fingerprints goal to enhance your first few days as a new mum, hence the sessions are always very quiet, relaxed and peaceful.   

Held in the Little Fingerprints studio located just 5 minutes from Brisbane City in Milton, a session will typically last between 2-3hours dependent upon how hungry or sleepy the baby is. There is always ample time for nursing and changing!  

As custom children's photographers, who all have children of their own, we are very experienced in the ways of babies and especially brand new infants. We are masters in lulling and keeping  babies asleep, as well as in using creative techniques in posing and arranging to provide you with magical images of your young one at his/her tiniest. 

The studio is kept at a balmy 28 degrees to keep baby nice and warm while in their birthday suit. Hence, we suggest dressing in layers if it is a cool day so you can peel away the layers if you get warm. If parents and/or siblings would like to participate in the newborn session, these photos are taken care of towards the end of the session, so please let us know if you plan on participating.   

All props, blankets and hats you see on the website are available to utilise in your baby’s portrait session, so all you need to bring is your gorgeous little newborn baby and then you can sit back and relax with some morning tea from the adjacent cafe'! 


Newborn Photography Sessions are best between 5-10 days after birth.

We suggest that you book your newborn session at the beginning of your second trimester. We will add your estimated due date to our calendar and when baby arrives we will schedule your newborn session 5-10 days after baby is born.


We limit our sessions per week to ensure quality service and products for our clients, so be sure to contact us several weeks/months in advance to book your session and secure your date.

Maternity Sessions

Sometimes we may think that we don't want to capture this time. You'll always remember hearing your baby's first heartbeat, the first kick, or the tiny little hiccups. But will you remember the beautiful baby bump or how gorgeous you looked? Maternity portraits are personal and a change in our body we should capture forever! 


Maternity sessions take place in our studio. 

You will have Little Fingerprints full range of maternity gowns, drapes, and fabrics to choose from for your session, or if you prefer, you are welcome to bring your own clothing.


We offer the services of a Photography Beauty Specialist for makeup and/or hair styling. Our Beauty Specialist has over 25years experience in television and photography makeup and it's a beautiful way to pamper yourself prior to your session! You will look and feel amazing! 


Maternity sessions are best between 32 and 37 weeks. 

We suggest that you book your maternity session at the beginning of your second trimester. 


We limit our sessions per week to ensure quality service and products for our clients, so be sure to contact us several weeks/months in advance to book your session and secure your date.

Babies/Children/Families

6 - 9months

Babies at 6-9months of age are full of smiles, tongues and chewing! This is the best time to capture next milestone when they are sitting on their own and fully engaged in everything you are doing! 


12months 

Toddlers at 12months are doing all sorts of activities at this stage! A fun time to capture them walking, laughing and just being silly with all that is around them! We of course do 1st Birthday Cake Smashes and Spaghetti Smashes! 


Children/Families

Our style with older children and families is relaxed, artistic and candid. Our goal is to capture the personality of your child, and the love of your family in truly original artworks for your home.  The smiles and giggles, the funny faces, and all the details that make your child and family unique.



Enquire about booking a Baby/Family Session

Birth and Newborn Baby Portraiture are not ordinary portrait sessions.

In both instances you are often trusting a complete stranger to hold, nurse, feed (bottle), pose, wrap, dress and finally, photograph, your less than 10 day old baby!


In addition, the Newborn Photography industry is currently unregulated. This means that there is NO SPECIFIC QUALIFICATION that a photographer MUST obtain before they can start offering the service.


Just because a photographer is a mother (or father) and they can use a camera, does not ensure they are qualified to be a newborn photographer. You wouldn't ask someone to be your Chief Financial Officer for your business, because they are good at managing the family budget. Nor would you leave your child in the care of an unregistered day-care provider, just because they have a child of their own.


Hence, in such an oversaturated and unregulated market, parents should spend a lot of time researching the right Newborn Photographer, to ensure they have the necessary skills and experience in handling newborn babies.

QUESTIONS EVERY PARENT SHOULD ASK WHEN RESEARCHING THEIR BIRTH OR NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER.

Lifestyle Session Information

Birth Sessions

Giving Birth is the hardest thing you will ever do.

It is the BEST thing you will ever do!

Birth is THE most powerful, emotional, life-changing experience you'll ever encounter!


Birth photography captures the truly magical moments before, during, and after your baby enters the world. 


More often than not... Dad, your best friend or Grandma (or one of the nurses!) are left holding the camera and preparing to take dimly-lit images. We believe that you and your loved ones should be PRESENT in the moment and leave the life-altering image-taking to us.  


We are "on-call" 24/7 from 38 weeks onwards and we will be present with you in your delivery room, birth centre or home, during your active birth through to 2 hours post-partum as you and your loved ones get acquainted with your beautiful new arrival! 


We understand the need for privacy and minimal interruption during labour. We use a camera especially designed for low-light photography, which is equipped with a completely silent shutter and a fast lens. We strive to maintain a healthy, positive, unobtrusive presence in the birth space and be a helpful part of your team.


The content of the photographs can range from modest to graphic, and can include labouring at home, labouring in hospital, the moment of birth, newborn exam, first feeding and introduction to siblings/other family members.


We limit our birth sessions to only two per month to ensure quality and that we are focused solely on you and your birth, so be sure to contact us several weeks/months in advance to book your session and secure your date.

Fresh 48 Sessions

Fresh 48 Photography Brisbane, Newborn Photography Brisbane, Brisbane Hospital Newborn Photographer

Fresh 48 Newborn Hospital Photography sessions are one of our favourite sessions. 


The first couple of hours and days after delivery can be a blur because of all the changes, actual labour and post delivery.

Hence Fresh 48 sessions (held 12-48hours after birth) capture forever the natural raw beauty of your new arrival; the amazing connection that happens between brand new parents and their beautiful baby!  


If not your first baby, it is a great idea to time your Fresh 48 Session with the first time a sibling gets to meet their new baby brother or sister. The look on their face is always priceless and deserves to be recorded forever! 

 

If the first two days is too soon...perhaps you have had a caesarian section, then we are always able to make it a little later on day number 3 or 4, when you feel more energetic and can get out of bed.


Fresh 48 Sessions are perfect lifestyle sessions for remembering that first day forever.
