Newborn Photography Brisbane

Newborn Photography Brisbane

Loving glances, tender cuddles, shared laughter and joyful tears. Baby photography brings magic to all our lives.

It is our passion and privilege to capture lifelong memories derived from special moments that mean so much to our clients. For most of our clients, having their first child, or their second (or third at that!), is a momentously joyous occasion and to be able to capture their little ones in the first few weeks of their life is humbly rewarding in itself. Our newborn photography repertoire is a true testament to the strong relationships we have formed with our married couples across the years. Most have entrusted us to be their photographer of choice when having their child photographed for the first time, and from here we have developed a whole new dedicated offering as part of Studio Impressions. Joining Marcus behind the lens, Karen Pedwell is our specialist newborn photographer. She is great with soothing babies and knows how to relax mum while she steals some fantastic shots of the little one sleeping or smiling or cuddling with their parents. She is also great with toddlers and older children, and knows how to capture those special moments pre-birth through the art of maternity photography.  Both Karen and Marcus work in tandem on family projects like our "Watch Me Grow" series, that follow a couple’s journey to becoming a family, with sessions from maternity, to day one up in the maternity ward, to their child’s first birthday and beyond.


We are often asked when is the perfect time to have your newborn photographed?  From day ONE your baby will change, develop and grow.  Ideally the best time to photograph a newborn is during the first two weeks of life, as most babies are still sleepy making it much easier to position them into the poses that make your images truly special.  Your session is an exciting time for us as we get to meet your new little person. We love to capture pure, natural and gorgeous shots that will record your baby’s uniqueness.



We understand how tired you feel. How unsettled and crazy this time is. We are parents too after all, with Karen being a mother of two and Marcus a father of three, including twins. With this in mind, we make your newborn portrait session a time out for you. We will keep it brief, yet we won’t rush you – there will be time to settle, time to feed, time to relax and time to actually enjoy your coffee. Our studio is specially heated for the comfort of newborns and we have plenty of little tricks to get them settled. To capture these memories we customise each portrait session and handwork each image to create art pieces as diverse and beautiful as the lives of the people in them. We’ll photograph your little one in a favourite outfit or with that special keepsake you were given when they were born. We can also use our own little props to create adorable images. Your portrait can be at a time that suits you and your little one’s routine. If they have no routine, you can simply choose a time that you think will work and we will help you from there.

Before your shoot we will answer all of your questions, with your Studio Impressions experience beginning with a portrait design session to enable us to get to know you and discuss locations, styles, and special touches meaningful to you. We will work with you to plan just what you want. The pre consultation is important to help prepare us both for your portrait session as we strive to deliver a unique experience for each family.  We understand that with newborns it can be difficult to visit the studio for this session, so we can also do this over the phone or via Skype.

After your photography session, we will invite you back to relax in our viewing lounge and be treated to a design consultation and a slideshow of your images. From here, you can choose the ones you want to keep, and we’ll help you select the size, print, technique or album that will best display your favourites, using the highest art-quality materials available. We will also provide you with an online gallery so your loved ones can see the photos too. We will be upfront about our packages, and will keep it simple. No doubt, you will treasure these images more over time, but you can also enjoy watching the newborn in them grow and come to cherish them too. One day they will look to these portraits to find the likeness in their own children. 



  • A pre portrait consultation, either over the phone or at the studio to plan for your session.
  • Your portrait photography session
  • Design consultation to create individual concepts to display your art works in your home.
  • A cinematic viewing of your images in our studio .


Before your portrait session, think about where you would like to display the artwork, we will be creating for you – such as the baby nursery or other living areas.  We will work with you to create pieces to suit your home and blend with its surrounds. Once you have chosen your artwork locations, please let us know and we will work to create images that suit. You can also bring in unique items to your session that have special meaning to you and your family.


As your newborns only stay small so briefly, it’s best to book well in advance to ensure we have availability and can fit in with your routine within those first few weeks of their life. Our studio is located right here is Brisbane, on the corner of Turbot and Boundary St in Spring Hill with easy free parking onsite for your convenience.
