Newborn Photography

Exclusively for Newborn babies up to 21 days young.
Even Triplets!

Congratulations on Your Perfect Little Baby(s)

This new life that you have brought into the world is special and beautiful, and we would love to be a part of the welcoming fanfare to announce him or her to your family and friends.

Newborns grow up fast, which is why it’s important to get quality photos of them while they’re so cute and small.

This new arrival is a special time for both newborns and their parents. So many firsts await them: first smile, first laugh, first step.

We’d love to photograph them before those firsts happen so you can remember how small and precious they were once upon a time. Our facilities are a quiet and welcoming environment for newborn photography.

As you can see from our work portfolio, we have had some fun photo shoots in the past.

We love working with our parent customers to create the most special and fun photos possible.

Newborn Baby Photography (For Babies up to 21 Days)

Your baby will grow very quickly.

At first it seems like all your baby does is sleep, but then at the three week mark your baby will become restless and the growth really starts.

At three months the little baby that slept so peacefully will be looking around, watching your every move, totally dependent focussed on you.

In six to seven months your baby will be sitting up, eating solids and be very alert. Your baby is fasting developing a little personality and is starting to resemble you even more.

At twelve months your baby is most likely walking, and that’s when the fun starts! Below is a gallery of growth from seven days young to one year old. Isn’t it amazing how much a baby grows in just one short year?

That’s why it’s so important to capture this important time with a newborn session.

For best results we recommend 10-14 days young.

We have a range of props for use during the session. These include several animals (snail, dinosaur etc), little hats, little outfits, name blocks and a couple of bigger props being a few different style baby sized beds and our signature prop, the old wooden wagon made out of driftwood for that rustic antique feel. We are always adding props to our range to keep our sessions fresh and different.

In addition to the props, we also provide the more classic Black & White styles. At Cole Studios we have a wide format printer that can print any backdrop we like. Did you ever notice our ever changing backdrops? We print them all here in our studio.

Newborn Photographic Books

Over the years there is nothing quiet like having a photo book to look back on each year as your baby grows. We have many customers that have a photo book from each year, from Newborn to 5 years old. We also have other customers that have a photobook for each child in the family when they were a newborn. A photobook is a great way to preserve this special time for many years to come. The images you choose in your package are used to make up these beautiful photobooks.

Newborn Baby Book

10 pages / 20 sides with a photo cover and a frosted sleeve.
This is our “keepsake” album cost effective album.
The album comes in one size being 10”x10”.

Album supplied with a clear magnetic acrylic cover.

Some of Our Favourite Images

To get the best possible results for your new baby’s photo session, we have spent a lot of time developing our own special techniques.

Our studio is a comfortable environment for you and your baby and we even carry spare nappies, dummies and wet wipes… just in case.

We also have a stocked customer drink fridge with soft drinks, water and low calorie drink choices, all free of charge.

Some photos are best with just your baby, but other photos look great with props. We cater for a very wide range of styles and we can replicate most photos you email us.

Please note that the “Details” scene with your babies length, weight, date of birth etc. is only available in a 20″x30″ photo or larger. This is because of the amount of photoshopping that goes into editing this one shot and also so the details can be easily read.

If you see a photo that you really like (say, on a commercial calendar etc), send it to us and we will do a Cole Studios version of that photo.

Each session we capture a lot of different expressions, emotions and various angles.

Some photos are super close for maximum detail, others a little further away. Some smiling, some more passive, we work a lot of different options for you.

The beauty about this is that you choose how much you want to spend and what photographs you want.

Each photograph is fully edited, beautiful, perfect and a lifetime memory. Distractions like skin flakes, baby acne and skin marks are all removed.

When you put these photos on your wall you will appreciate the beauty and the quality of a Cole Studios Newborn portrait.

Our Philosphy

Our Newborn sessions provide the best quality images. Each image has colour & exposure adjustments.

Our photographs are of the highest quality.

We asked many of our customers if they would prefer a large numbers of images with a basic edit (exposure and colour correction) or if they would prefer a smaller number of photographs but of a higher quality more polished image.

Our customers wanted a USB of all images but also individually edited and printed photos.

Both packages now include the USB of all images as well as a good selection of printed photographs.


Detailed Editing

An example of the detailed editing we can do to each of the printed photos you choose (included in each package).

Most sessions have 10-12 scenes so there is plenty of choice and variety when selecting photographs.


If you look closely the images on the left, this is a standard (basic edit) photograph.


The photographs on the right have been zoomed out slightly, extra background added and blended, rotated slightly clockwise, brightened in specific areas, sharpened, skin flakes removed and skin blemishes removed.

Our photographs are provide un-watermarked and printed on archival quality “Luster” photo paper.

Additional photographs can also be purchased printed on Canvas and Acrylic formats.
