Newborn Photography Geelong & Surf Coast

Enquire Today

As a mother of three children myself, I appreciate what mothers go through and the emotions that these little beings give rise to. When you have been waiting 9 months to meet your new little family member, and finally when you get to see that little face, toes and hands, it is just priceless.

I will capture the essence of each baby – newborn or older – for you to remember all these details during this precious and fleeting time of life. Giving parents photographic memories to last forever is, without a doubt, the greatest privilege of being a baby photographer.

The Newborn Photography Experience

Tanja offers a lot more than a quick baby photoshoot with digital copies. With over 12 years’ of knowledge in creating stunning images for you and your family Tanja ensures all clients have a relaxing experience, and that you receive stunning images of your newborn and your family.

Receive beautifully presented images of your newborn in precious keepsakes to cherish forever. The value of having beautiful photos displayed on your wall and receiving gorgeous products to treasure your newborn photos for years to come, far outways a mere USB.

What is included in your newborn photoshoot?

Newborn sessions include:

  • being pampered by a hair & makeup professional to make you look & feel amazing
  • a 2-3 hour session with full use of all props, blankets, bonnets etc
  • a clothing guide and tips to help you prepare for your session
  • Photos include 2-3 newborn setups, mum and baby, dad and baby, siblings and family photos.
  • approx 20 images for you to choose your products or collections from

Grandparents with their precious grandbaby are photos your child will be forever grateful for. Grandparents are always welcome in a family photo.

When Is the Best Time to Take Newborn or Baby Photos?

Newborn photography is best taken within the first 10 days after birth.
At this time, newborn babies are generally still sleepy and easy to settle, allowing you to get sleeping baby poses without being disturbed. Newborn’s skin is also usually clear in these first few days. After this time, babies usually become more unsettled and can develop a baby rash.

This is only a recommendation though. If for whatever reason it is not possible to have your baby photographed in the first few days, don’t worry as photos of baby’s are precious no matter what their age.

How long does the newborn photoshoot last?

Usually, the session lasts 2-3 hours. I don’t rush the shoot, if we need to stop for babies to feed or comforting, i’ll work to what suits your baby and you on the day.

Where are the newborn photoshoots taken?

Newborn sessions are taken in my Geelong-West based studio which is enhanced by natural light and includes all the beautiful props.

When can I see my photos?

Two weeks after your photo session, I welcome you back to the studio for a Gallery Reveal of approximately 20 final photos for you to choose the photos you love and purchase either a collection or beautiful wall prints. Once your order has been placed and paid for, products take between 2-4 weeks to arrive.

Tanja is a fantastic photographer. She has a wonderful variety of props and ideas for the shoot. Her manner with my little bubba was precious and she made myself and my husband feel at ease and looked after. The end results are better than i could have dreamed. I highly recommend her and will be booking in again when my little miss turns one. Thank you tanja ?

Tanja is very calm and soothing, she has the magic touch when it comes to settling babies.
Tanja made the whole experience so much fun and the finished products were just simply amazing.
I was able to breastfeed during the session, and was not hurried. I was amazed by the quality of all the products.
I ordered an album and usb with photos and thought it will just be photos on a random usb, but it was much more. It was a beautiful wooden usb in an engraved wooden box.
