Newborns

Newborn Photography

Sassi Photography’s East Brisbane studio is heated for the comfort of your newborn and setup with newborns and their families in mind.  Although we prefer to photograph your baby in our studio, we can also visit your home for a Lifestyle Newborn Session.  We would love to meet your newborn in the first week of their life, while they are so small, squishy and sleepy.  This makes for the best newborn photography.

After your newborn photography experience your images will be presented to you at your pre-booked Design Consultation in our East Brisbane studio.  When there are no other siblings we generally book the Design Consultation directly after your newborn session.  If there are more children than the newborn involved, they are often tired and need to go home or for a run at the park.  In this case, we suggest coming back another day to design your artwork without your children.  You are making an important and exciting decision regarding your artwork investment.

We specialise in fine art custom wall portraiture.  Our fine art prints are matted and ready to frame.  We offer a range of stunning portrait products including custom portrait boxes, acrylic tiles, framed art prints, canvas and acrylic mounted photographs.

A Newborn Photography Experience is confirmed with a $300 transferable, non-refundable Session Fee.*  BUY NOW.

* $300 Session Fee is for weekdays only.  The Weekend Photography Experience Session Fee is $400.

We like to photograph your newborn within the first 7-10 days. At this time they tend to sleep all the time and are at their tiniest stage. Our children grow up right in front of our eyes, after a week, two weeks, three weeks, six months they grow, change and develop and we cannot do anything to stop them!
Newborn's are really hard to know when to book in because, they come whenever they want to come! What we do at Sassi Photography is pencil you in 7 days after your due date. It is then up to you to contact us when bubs arrives so we can book you in as soon as possible. We only take a limited amount of bookings a month so that each client gets our full attention. To ensure your desired time it is best to book in as soon as possible.
For couples that choose to have children - welcoming a baby into the world is the most scary and exciting day ever. From the first moment you see, hold and smell your newborn child - your world will change. Your baby changes so much within the first month of being born! The fingers, the toes, the eyelashes every little tiny detail that changes each passing day. After a week, two weeks, three months your newborn baby will look different. This is why it is so important to capture these moments to remember forever. More importantly to capture these moments with a professionally trained newborn photographer.
Any mother will tell you how precious their newborn child is! You dot want just anybody handling and caring for your child. Our photographer is a caregiver for your infant during the 2-3 hour session. Our photographers are trained in handling newborns, posing, positioning and soothing. They are trained in capturing those special moments and tiny details on your newborn baby.
Newborn Sessions are held in our studio which is located within Brisbane Photography Studios at 55 Caswell Street East Brisbane. We have a warm cosy studio full of props and everything you will need for a Newborn Session.
Newborn sessions can take anywhere from 2-3 hours depending on how your newborn child is coping. If he/she is restless or needs feeds in between the session it will obviously take a bit longer.
We sure do! Your Newborn session can take anywhere from 2-3 hours. In this time we see what we can get done in that time! We will normally start with all the family photographs and photos with younger family members. Once we have all of that out of the way we spend the rest of the time with your newborn. We do request that if there are young siblings who will be included in the session, that there be another parent or adult take them to the park after they have finished their photos so they do not disrupt our efforts to capture the best photos of your newborn. Young toddlers can become bored, irritated or make loud noises that often startle the newborn and disrupt the newborn posing.
The most important thing you can do is relax. Your session is a great time for you to chill out and have a rest for once while out=r training photographer looks after your baby. Beyond that, I recommend that you try to keep your newborn awake for an hour prior to the session, and that you feed your baby once you have arrived and settled into the studio. If you are breast feeding, it is best to keep a bottle of expressed milk on hand for use during the session. Pacifiers are also extremely helpful for allowing me to calm your baby during the session.
We have a studio full of props and anything you may need for a newborn session. However, that being said we do encourage you to bring anything that is special to you and your newborn. Most people like to bring special blankets, teddies, favourite sports team merchandise, something out of the nursery, anything that means something special to you. Some people will even bring their special pet! (just let us know if you are going to do this as we need to be prepared)
We have free car parking available within the studio as well as there is free street parking around the studio. You can pull up out the front and walk straight in the door.
