Pregnancy & newborn photography session for Shona

shona-maternity-photoshoot 001

Shona came to us 6 weeks ago, along with her husband Matthew for her pregnancy session for her second child. A pregnancy session is best done at around 33 – 34 weeks so that there is little risk of an early arrival but you will still have a lovely round baby bump.

She came back to us this week, along with Matthew and her daughter Sabrina, for the newborn photography session for little Beau. A beautiful, healthy little boy.

Pregnancy photography sessions are best done at around 33 – 34 weeks so that there is less chance of an early unexpected arrival of your little bub. Newborn photography sessions are done between day 7 – 10 after birth while bubs is still small enough for the newborn props but also nice and sleepy. We take all the time needed for your session to ensure that we get the best images possible.

You will find some helpful information on this link.

We have fabrics as well as a cream and black robe available for your use and you are welcome to bring your husband/partner in for your session.

It doesn’t seem that long ago that a pregnant belly was hidden away and would definitely not be seen on a living room wall, but thankfully now, maternity photography is celebrated and cherished. Let us capture this special time for you with our expert posing, styling and editing and give you some amazing images that you will be proud to display in your home and pass onto your children and grand children.

Our pregnancy packages will begin with a relaxing makeover for the expectant mum, followed by a 1 – 2hr photography session, taken at your pace as we know that your not as mobile as you once were at this time. You can choose from mounted photos, folio box, albums, coffee table books and wall art, all of which will come with the digital versions of each print, or you may choose a digital only package.

If you would like information on a session with us please contact Karen on 0402 230 669 or email on this link.

Here you will find our babies and bumps gallery.

Pregnancy photography session for Solene & Fabien.

pregnancy-photography-australia 008

Solene & Fabien chose us for their pregnancy photography session in November of 2015 to help them visually document this amazing time in their life. They were expecting their first child, a baby boy, in early January but little David decided to stay a little longer than expected and arrived late. He was the most alert and largest newborn baby that we have photographed and he was awake for most of the session. Most newborns are sleepy but little David was having none of that. We managed to get him to drift off a little at one point, but in the end it really wasn’t an issue, as he was such a great little fellow. Not one cry from him. He seemed fascinated in what we were doing & he was the largest newborn we have shot to date, only just fitting into the newborn props.

Pregnancy photography sessions are best done at around 33 – 34 weeks so that there is less chance of an early unexpected arrival of your little bub. You can then start to plan your newborn session which is done between day 7 – 10 after your little one arrives.

We have fabrics as well as a cream and black robe available for your use and you are welcome to bring your husband/partner in for your session.

Newborn photography

newborn-photography 001

Newborn photography is one of the most satisfying and special forms of photography that we produce. It is so special, and we love having the opportunity to document this time for the family with images that we know will hang on walls for many, many years, and eventually be handed down.

The best time to photograph a newborn baby is between day 7 and 10, after two weeks babies are a little harder to settle, a little less sleepy, and things like colic and baby acne can start to flare up.  You can contact us at any time during your pregnancy for a chat and let us know an estimated due date. We will then make a tentative booking and once you arrive home from hospital with your brand new baby, simply contact us to arrange a suitable date for your session.

If you have missed the newborn time for your little one, don’t despair, we can do beautiful photos for baby, they will just be a little different than the curled up, sleepy, newborn images (as seen in a few of the images below).

You can find information on preparing your baby for one of our newborn sessions at the bottom of our FAQ page on this link.

Our studio is quiet and is heated for your baby’s comfort. Newborns like to be warm and snuggled and so we ensure that the room is kept very warm as they are often naked. We will also play “white noise” to help settle baby. You will have plenty of time to feed and comfort your baby as we need a sleepy content baby to get the best images. We have plenty of props, blankets and accessories and we will take as long as is needed to get the very best images. We work at your baby’s pace.

Your babies safety is our number one priority so we ensure that baby is never left in an unsafe prop or position. We will also include images of mum and dad (if he can make it also) and siblings.

You can find our newborn photography gallery here

If you would like further information on a newborn photography session with us please contact Karen on 0402 230 669 or email karen@deanagar.com.au.

Here is a range of photos from our newborn photography folio.

Newborn photography session for baby Abbie

newborn photography brisbane gold coast abbie 012

Newborn photography is a favorite style of ours. 18 months ago we photographed baby Harrison for first time parents, Jess & Adrian and this week we had the honour of photographing their second child, little baby Abbie.

Abbie was adorable and after a bit of an awake time she settled into a nice calm sleep, allowing us to get the images we need for the very proud parents.

Our studio is based conveniently between Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Redlands and Ipswich which means it is not too far to travel. The best times for newborn images are day 7 – 14 whilst bub is sleepy and still nice and bendy.

Today Alicia brought her beautiful baby girl, Arabella in for her newborn photography session, along with her husband Tony. Little Arabella was so sweet and well behaved today which made our job very easy. We would like to thank Alicia & Tony for allowing us to display these images.

Alicia had come to us at 32 weeks for her pregnancy photography session. She was just beautiful and so easy to photograph and it was amazing to see her back after 9 weeks with baby Arabella.

Pregnancy images are best done around 33 – 35 weeks. This way we have a nice big bellow without risking missing the event due to early labour.

Pregnancy & newborn photography packages

001 Newborn photography

We have always produced beautiful pregnancy images but it was only last year that we decided to add newborn photography to our repertoire after being asked by several of our expecting mums. We purchased a few props, wraps, and bits & pieces and started offering newborn sessions. We were stunned when we won an international award for an image taken in our 2nd newborn session.

015 Newborn photography

Newborn sessions are very challenging and a lot more work than a glamour session but they are very, very rewarding. It is so special for Dean and I to be the first to officially record that gorgeous new addition to the family. Given that the best newborn images are of the bubs when asleep, we need to take all the time needed to achieve this. Patience is a virtue and a good pair of earmuffs can help at times too.

Our 2013 APPA award winning entries

APPA winner 1

This year we decided to enter our first APPA awards (Australian Professional Photography Awards), so we were very pleased to learn that we were awarded two silvers for these two shots.

The news that we’d won an award came on the day Karen and I got married, so it served as a very nice wedding gift for both of us.The first image we took of Gabrielle early this year, and the second was of baby Harrison.Getting an award for baby Harrison was particularly exciting as it was only our second newborn shoot, so it’s good to know it was well received.
