Newborn sessions are held in Luisa Dunn’s home studio, located in Brisbane’s western suburbs, and images are captured using natural window light.
Sessions last from 3-3.5 hours, allowing ample time for a variety of studio set-ups, as well as the important things like feeding, settling and cuddling. Whilst Luisa aims for a selection of unique and creative images, your baby’s comfort and safety is paramount. This is why Luisa chooses to have an assistant attend all newborn sessions.
Newborns are best photographed in the first two weeks, generally between 5-10 days old, as this is when they are easily settled, often sleeping and therefore most comfortable during sessions.
Luisa generally books out a few months in advance, so it is recommended you book your newborn session early in your pregnancy. If time is available in the calendar, Luisa will always do her best to accommodate new enquiries where she can.
All props including blankets, beanies, bonnets, wraps, throws and headbands are sourced from the finest local and international suppliers and are available for your session. If you have sentimental items such as knitted blankets, special clothing items or hats you would like included in your images, please bring them along to your session and Luisa will make every effort to incorporate them into your session.
Luisa’s studio includes a comfortable lounge area where you can settle in, relax and enjoy watching your little one’s first professional photoshoot.
If you are interested in booking, please contact Luisa with your estimated due date and tentatively schedule a session for your newborn. Once your baby arrives, contact Luisa as soon as convenient and she will lock in a session time.
