Newborn & Baby

It's a very special privilege to be able to capture little ones who are so new to the world around them. My style when it comes to newborns and babies is to take my lead from them, so we can capture their unique personality and energy. I have an observant style which means my images tend towards intimate moments rather than poses. All my newborn and baby photography is shot with natural light which I love for the intimate, organic feel it produces.

It's best to photograph your new arrival at around one week of age (ideally between days 6-10) in order to get the very best out of your session. 

To ensure the session isn't rushed and there's plenty of time to be attentive and responsive to the unique needs of each baby, a newborn session will typically be scheduled for around 2-3 hours. 

Newborn sessions can be arranged in your home, as long as there is a good natural light source. Alternatively, I have set up my home in Johnsonville to easily accommodate newborn sessions.

To secure a date for your newborn photography session, it's best to book during your  pregnancy, before the little one arrives. Simply email cath@cathfitzgeraldphotography.com to arrange your booking.

Older babies are such fun to photograph. A few months into their lives and already they are full of personality - whether that's sweet smiles or gorgeous grimaces.

Baby sessions usually run for 60-90 minutes, depending on your little one's needs during the session. To achieve the look you see in my images, I photography all my older baby sessions at my at-home set up in my home in Johnsonville.

There are certain ages which produce the best images so I recommend booking an older baby shoot when your little one is between 4-12 months.
