Why newborn photography ?
Congratulations on your pregnancy ! Having a baby is one of the happiest moments in your life.
Yet, those first few weeks go by so quickly and, and often become a blur.
I will help you capture your love for this new baby, celebrate it and beautifully display it in your home.
Here at Isabelle Newborn Photography, as a Brisbane newborn photographer I like to photograph babies in their first days of life, ideally between 5 and 12 days, so that you can remember what your baby looked like when she was just a week old.
I focus 100% on you and your expectations. Your dream, your vision, the reason why you want to hire a professional newborn photographer.
We work together to make sure every little detail is discussed for a result that you will love.
Also, when hiring a professional Brisbane newborn photographer who is going to work with your new baby, hold her, soothe her, make sure you choose someone who is highly experienced.
Read below the 4 elements that make Isabelle Newborn Photography
Newborn photography Safety
Safety is paramount. During the shoot, it is my utmost priority. Working with babies who are only days old, it is very important to know how to handle them, and pose them in a safe manner. Posed newborn photography is a very specific and highly technical type of photography. All poses requiring support are done so with the parent’s help, and the resulting image is a composite of 2 shots.
I have always been “a natural” with newborns. I know how to keep them safe, secure and content. I have studied newborn safety and was one of the first newborn photographers in the world to test a StandInBabyTM : the world’s first fully articulated training aid, and provide feedback to the development team. I have 3 children, so you can rest assured that your little one is in safe hands.
Comfort during your newborn photography photo session
Next comes the comfort of you and your baby. If you have had a c-section, I will take the time with you when posing you and your baby, so you never get sore or tired. The same care is taken for your baby. Peaceful and beautiful portraits can only be achieved when baby is nice and cosy, snug and warm… This is why it’s always toasty warm in the studio, between 28 to 30 degrees Celsius (82 to 86 degrees Fahrenheit).
Depending on the desired look to be achieved, we will use a variety of props on your photos. Each session is custom designed with your baby and your taste in mind. This is all discussed during the pre-session consultation. Some of the questions that I will ask you are : What are your favorite colours ? Do you want to have full body shots ? Do you have one item that you would like to bring to the session ? (I always like to incorporate your special item in your photos).
The photoshoot usually last around 3 hours, depending on baby. Some babies are very sleepy, others need long feeds. Some eat quickly, others are cluster-feeders, which takes longer. Baby is the boss! It is very hard to predict what will happen on the day ! Once you step in the studio, sit back, relax, and enjoy watching your little one’s very first photoshoot !
My style is very soft, natural, modern and elegant.
As a newborn photographer, my goal is to capture the connection between you and your baby. I will make you feel comfortable and will wait for that perfect moment to take the shot !
I am extremely gentle with babies, and also incredibly patient, and will take the time to fix even the tiniest detail, for a beautiful result.
I enjoy creating fine-Art photographs, that my clients cherish for a lifetime and hang proudly in their homes.

Here is what our clients say about their experience with Isabelle Newborn Photography :
When 6 months pregnant my partner and I decided we wanted to capture this special time by a professional photographer.
We talked to several talented photographers and Isabelle was the one who proposed to meet us and straight away we got infected by her warm personality and her passion for photography and family. We loved her newborn photos because they were natural and soft.
For the maternity shoot we were looking for something intimate and a bit different then the examples she had posted online. She listened very clearly to what we wanted, enjoyed to include her own ideas and creativity and we ended up with beautiful pictures. In her studio she took her time, was patient and caring. She was very careful with our little girl and didn’t mind the spills that off course happened when she wasn’t wearing a nappy.
Our daughter was born early and Isabelle made sure she was able to fit us in. She also came over to our own home to take family shots when the grandparents visited us from overseas. They turned out beautiful and they are very precious to us and our grandparents.
Although expensive, the pictures are really priceless and timeless. We display the pictures all over our home, we have several canvases on our walls, framed several more and used them for her baby record book. Don’t just take my word for it, have a look at her work and reach out to her if you like what you see.
I highly recommend Isabelle’s services and feel truly blessed to have found her. The photos she took are extraordinary and of the highest quality with a natural feel and beauty about them. I can still remember how comfortable we felt with her and her handling of our little one, as she has a very gentle, patient and calming nature. She was very well prepared and had everything ready as needed for the photoshoot including the environment of the studio which was at a comfortable temperature for little ones. From start to finish the process was simple, easy and professional. Isabelle is incredibly talented and can be trusted. She truly is just the nicest person who loves what she does and it shows!
Isabelle is amazing, passionate and incredibly talented photographer! We have had a maternity session, Newborn photos, family photos and I highly recommend. The photos are such great quality and Isabelle is warm and welcoming and so professional. She is fantastic with the kids and is very patient. Isabelle will work with you to achieve exactly what you want and will offer great suggestions as well. I love her creativity and fantastic ideas for photo shoots – Highly recommended!
My husband made beautiful pictures of our son while Alex was a baby and a toddler however life became hectic and we realised he wouldn’t have the time to do the same for our beautiful little Helene, that’s why we decided to get professional help. It was really important for us to have beautiful pictures of Helene as a newborn.
It was very easy to make an appointment with Isabelle, and even when my son had a fever, she was sweet enough to change plans and come to us.
The whole session lasted 4h, I was impressed to see her expertise and patience with my daughter. Isabelle didn’t mind waiting for Helene to be happy, she didn’t mind either curling herself into weird positions to get just the right light and angle for a beautiful picture and keep my precious bub content.
The whole experience was delightful, she put me at ease, we chatted and giggled away while Isabelle concentrated on the perfect shot. She was also very flexible payment-wise which is much appreciated when having a growing family.
We used one of her shots for our petal’s birth announcement which created a big wow effect on everyone who received it. Isabelle is most definitely worth every penny. I cannot thank her enough for making it special for us. We now have two beautiful little ones and stunning pictures to boot.
Isabelle is a gifted photographer and did an incredible job in capturing our 9 day old daughter. She was professional, tender, safe and took beautiful images that we will treasure for life. She is a professional baby whisperer! Couldn’t recommend Isabelle Photography more highly.
Isabelle is such an amazing photographer we love her work so much. Isabelle has photographed our products with so many beautiful babies, her photos are just beautiful.
Isabelle is also so kind and gentle with the babies, she is a pleasure to work with, I highly recommend her to everyone
Isabelle is an excellent photographer, she is also very professional and really patient with little people. I had a maternity photoshoot and a newborn session with her. Her kindness and fun personality made the photoshoots very enjoyable. All the pictures were amazing! I would highly recommend her to anyone who would like beautiful memories of these precious times.
When I took the decision to do the photoshoot with my newborn, I was a bit worried and stressed about how he will “behave”. But as soon as I arrived, Isabelle put me at ease and was so comfortable with my baby. She connected with him straight away and managed to take great photos wit less than 3 hours! Everytime I look at my photos, I think the result is so worth it and I can’t recommend Isabelle enough.
Tips on how to choose a Brisbane newborn photographer ?
When choosing someone to photograph your new baby, you need to consider several elements. Here is the list below that will help you narrow down the photographer that’s right for you.
- Trust – Trust is very important. The photographer you hire will handle your baby. You must trust that person fully. Choose someone who has experience with babies and have a studio set up for newborn photography.
- Budget – Newborn photography is not cheap. So much work go into creating those beautiful angelic photos that you see online. Patience, skills, editing …. Hours are often put in one single image. Newborn photography is unlike any other. A newborn photoshoot will be 2 hours at the minimum, with an average of 3 hours. Put the price in perspective. These photos are not just photos … they are precious memories of the people you love the most, taken to perfection. As a rule of thumb, if your order is over 3 digits ($1000 or more), the photographer will often offer a payment plan. This should be at no extra cost to you (or very minimal) and will allow you to pay for your photographs and products over time, without straining your monthly budget. This allows most families to afford a good newborn photographer. One that will produce amazing images, a fantastic experience, and sell quality products that you will be able to pass down to your children.
- Location – Do you want to go to your photographer or do you want the photographer to come to you ? If you are traveling to the studio, how close is it located to your home ? Driving over 30 minutes with a newborn is no easy feat ! Choose a photographer who is close to you.
- Portfolio of images – Do you like the photos that you see ? Always remember that the photos you see on a website are the best photos of the photographer. Don’t hesitate to go to social media, Instagram, Facebook or Pinterest, to find more work. Do you like what you see ?
- What does the photoshoot include ? Is it photos of just baby, or are he parents and siblings included ? Does it include professional hair and make-up ?
- Service – How would you like to see your images ? Would you like to look at them in an online-gallery or in-person where your photographer meets with you to show you your photos ? Online-galleries often have images with a big logo on it, until you have chosen and purchased some images. Photographers who meet with their client often show the images on a large TV screen without a logo and are able to provide advice or suggestions. What products would you like to have your photos printed on ? What are the products that the photographer sells ?
