In this session we first took family photos and then concentrated on newborn pictures. This little man loved the cuddles during family photos but wasn’t so sure during his newborn pictures when he was laying by himself. After a few more cuddles during family photos we concentrated on newborn pictures. He was super strong and wiggle his way out of the wrap during newborn pictures but we managed to get a few when he was also snuggly too. Meagan Goodes, Melbourne newborn photographer

Cameron – Newborn pictures, family photos and maternity photos from a Melbourne newborn photographer
I was lucky enough to take maternity photos before little Cameron was born including family photos When Cameron came in we spent the first 10 minutes taking family photos and then the rest of the time on newborn pictures. This poor little man had a rough start to life with a little operation. He spent the first week or so in hospital but is in perfect health now. He was so easy to work with for his newborn pictures as we changed his clothing, wraps and props. Meagan Goodes, Melbourne newborn photographer
Mum and her two gorgeous daughters came into the studio for their family portrait and newborn photography session. The family portrait consisted of the sisters together, capturing their connection. The newborn photography was a breeze with bubba – she was a complete angel and slept the whole time. We were able to capture some beautiful newborn photography images on the beanbag and in a basket, including some close ups. Mum chose a beautiful lemon coloured backdrop where we used a flower halo on her daughter. Meagan Goodes, Melbourne newborn photographer
Mum and grandma came into the studio with a 2 week old for their newborn photography session. The little man was an absolute dream to work with. He slept through the majority of his newborn photography shoot and allowed me to change him from clothes to wraps, on the beanbag and in the basket. We had enough time for feeding, changing and capturing a variety of awake and sleepy newborn photography images including the use of a variety of props. Meagan Goodes, Melbourne newborn photographer
This little family came in for their newborn photography session and a family portrait. The black and white family portrait really captured the real connections between them. Mum chose the gorgeous apricot backdrop for newborn photography which was a beautiful contrast with the white headbands we used. The newborn photography shoot consisted of clothing changes, wraps, and headbands as well as using a variety newborn photography images with some props. Meagan Goodes, Melbourne newborn photographer
This family portrait was a trio, new parents and a newborn but most of the photos were taken of the connection between father and son. We also captured a newborn photography session with some sentimental items that mum wanted included. A newborn photography session or even a family portrait can include special items to make your photoshoot more personalised. Items such as hand-me-down blankets or booties might be used, an item that was yours as a child or even something that your newborn was given at the hospital.

Mum, grandma and twin girls graced their presence in the studio for their newborn photography session and a family portrait. The family portrait consisted of mum with one daughter and then another photo with her other daughter. It was a little tricky to try and get both by herself. The newborn photography session also consisted of photographing one girl and then the other. To capture a family portrait of the two girls I needed to get one settled first and could then add in her sister. Newborn photography with twins can be a little more time consuming because there are two babies but it is well worth the effort when you can capture the siblings together. In this newborn photography shoot we did a lot of naked and semi naked photos. Meagan Goodes, Melbourne newborn photographer
