Perth Baby Photographer
Ever wondered what a standard newborn session, with Perth Baby Photographer Melissa Sheed might look like? Well here is an example of what a standard session may look like.
I will attempt to add a few more of these session examples over the coming months.
Newborn session with Family portraits
Seems like yesterday I photographed this newborn session of this adorably sweet and squishy baby boy.
So I started the session with some prop shots in a number of different props- bowl, nest and basket. I captured different angles and zoomed in on those finer close up details like his hands, feet, hair, nose, eyelashes. Mum chose this colour scheme which I photographed him in. He did amazing with seven different sleeping poses. Finishing the session with parent portraits and family portraits of them all together.

Why you should book a Professional Perth Baby Photographer.
Having your new baby photographed at an early age is essential for the perfect sleeping posed portraits.
After all this time is fleeting and will pass in a blink of an eye. Do not miss your chance by leaving it until the last minute.
Generally speaking securing your newborn session early in your pregnancy is advised.
Ordinarily Melissa Sheed books out months in advance. Available spots only occur if her booked babies have not arrived yet. So if you have had your baby and wish to have a session contact her ASAP to check her availability.
Melissa Sheed photographs newborns at 10-16 days old.
Her studio is open weekdays at 10:30am for newborn baby family portraits.
Additionally late afternoon sessions are available for Pregnancy and Family portrait sessions on Tues/Wed/Thurs/Fri from 5pm
Perth Newborn Sessions
All in all newborns are only in that ‘newborn’ stage for a mere few weeks. From 3-4 weeks old they are now very alert, curious infants. Looking around attempting to lift their heads watching the world around them. By and large their faces and features have completely changed!
In fact if you want that ‘true’ newborn portrait booking early in your pregnancy to avoid disappointment is a must.

Of course capturing this time in your new family’s life is a wonderful way of celebrating your new addition. Having the images to share with all your friends and family is the best part! Printing your own canvases, photo albums and framed wall art to adorn your walls, is one way to really show off how beautiful your new baby is. After all what good are they if simply left on a thumb drive? In fact it will be hard to find enough walls to fill!

Professional Printing Labs
Most noteworthy is that Melissa Sheed gives all her clients professional lab recommendations. This allows for her clients to order their canvases, albums, framed wall art and prints at their own pace. Ordering directly from the lab cuts out the middle man and saves her clients money.
Baby Portraits Perth
Since Melissa Sheed supplies everything needed for your newborn session; you do not need to purchase anything for the day.
Most of all special attention has been made to ensure that all props are low allergen, safe and of delicate textures. My items fit newborn babies perfectly I discourage clients bringing items of clothing for baby from home.
Perth Family Photographer
While Melissa Sheed is a leading maternity and newborn photographer, she is also a fantastic Perth Family Photographer. All her maternity sessions include family portraits to capture your partner/children embracing your pregnancy.
Because her newborn baby sessions are baby focused and I will spend most of the session photographing baby.
Newborn and Sibling Photographs
Bringing along siblings is highly encouraged for those wishing to get that precious sibling photograph.
Toddlers under five years old have a mind of their own and often will not co-operate during a newborn session. Every attempt is made to coax a sibling into a photograph. Bringing along bribery tools (iPads, fav toy, fav snacks) is essential. I have a little box of special stickers, stamps and balloons too!
Hence I like to do the family photos at the start of the session (or if that doesn’t work then at the end). So Dad can take them away out to the park or off for lunch whilst Mum stays with Baby and I, alternatively the session structure is flipped and Dad brings the kids at the end.
Studio Pregnancy Photographer Perth
If you have a studio pregnancy session booked and wish for the focus to just be on you and your growing bump I will style the session to include a number of different lighting styles.
Including (but not limited to) back-lit, dream lighting, silhouette, rim lighting, single soft box, high key. I supply all the maternity gowns, skirts, drapes, wraps and a selection of silk floral halos and metal crowns.
Bring along items of clothing from your home along with the recommended under garments.
Because many Mums will request to have a series of tasteful and elegant nude portraits, holding the session within the privacy of the studio is ideal.
Outdoor Beach Maternity Photographer
I recommend families decide where they would like to have their photos taken prior to booking.
From the numerous gorgeous beaches that travel our stunning coast, to park locations, Cherry blossom and Permission orchards, wineries, Bush natural settings, River backdrops, abandoned buildings, rural open farm paddocks or waterfall locations.
Also you may even have a special sentimental location in mind that Melissa may be able to travel to.
Pregnancy Photos Perth
Clients schedule their pregnancy photos between 32-36weeks pregnant.
Expectant mums find posing for photographs causes discomfort; especially in the final weeks of their pregnancy.
Holding your pregnancy photo session later than recommended is ill advised due to the level of mobility required for a session.
Later sessions will run the risk of baby arriving before your maternity photography session.
Twin/Multiples Pregnancy Photographer
Higher risk pregnancies will have their maternity session earlier than 32 weeks.
Receive a complimentary ‘mini’ maternity session should you book your twin/multiples newborn session with me.
