Stanley Studios is a boutique newborn, childrens and family photography studio located in Dunedin, Otago

Maternity & Newborn

The first few weeks of your baby's life will be gone in a heartbeat, and they will never be this delicate and tiny again. Photography is the best way keep your precious newborn tiny forever, if only in your memories

Photographing newborn babies is an absolute joy and I am deeply honoured to capture this special time in my clients' lives. While it's an exciting time, it can also be incredibly stressful, which is why my studio is full to the brim of props, outfits, wraps, even clothing for mum and siblings to wear - all you need to do is get here, and everything else will be taken care of.  

Newborn sessions are best booked a month or more prior to your due date to ensure your ideal session date is available.

The ideal time to photograph maternity is 32-36 weeks and newborns 5-14 days, however I am confident in my abilities to capture beautiful photographs of your baby at any age!

I will never book more than one newborn session on a day to ensure there are no time constraints in nursing and calming your baby during your session. Newborn sessions can take anywhere from 1 to 4 hours and have no time limits - the baby is the boss.

I strongly encourage parents and siblings to join in with your newborn photos - this is a very special time in all of your lives that will be gone before you know it. Photographs of children with their newborn siblings are some of my absolute favourite to shoot, and they will be so invaluable to your family in the years to come. 

Booking a maternity session is not only a wonderful way to celebrate the amazing things your body is doing right now (seriously, you're growing a human, that's pretty incredible!) and make you feel beautiful, but also a great way for me to get to know your family, style and favourite colours, so your newborn session is absolutely perfect. 

Book your newborn session now for any date and secure a maternity session for $150 - regularly $500
