Figtree Photographer



Maternity & Newborn

The Experience

Step 1: Make Your Photo Shoot Booking

The best time to book in your maternity and newborn photography session if you live in Figtree is as soon as you have your estimated arrival date. Ideally, we will schedule your newborn photo shoot two weeks after your due date. Don’t worry though, if your little one arrives earlier or later than anticipated, we will adjust your photo shoot accordingly.

The most common question that I am asked is at what age is my baby considered a newborn or older baby? Newborns are up to 4 weeks of age & older babies up to 12 weeks of age (styled as a newborn session). Once your baby is out of the newborn stage, we will be able to capture more awake photos. Newborn sessions are held in our Balgownie studio, where you can sit back and relax while we work our magic in capturing beautiful photos of your baby. 

Our studio is equipped with various props, wraps, and backdrops available for use.As a newborn photographer, I have many clients from Figtree that come to our studio to have their maternity, newborn and family photos captured.

Step 2: In The Lead Up To Your Photo Shoot

Pregnancy is one of the most precious and exciting times in a woman’s life. However, this time goes by within a blink of an eye and before you know it, your beautiful newborn has arrived into the world. Capturing your beautiful bump is something I know you will cherish for a lifetime.

With all newborn bookings you have the option to include an indoor or on location maternity shoot between 30-34 weeks. The outdoor locations are spread across the Figtree area where there are some pretty spectacular hidden gems that Lauren can take you to.You will have access to an array of bespoke maternity gowns from the studio’s client closet. You can view these here. 

A preparation guide and questionnaire will be emailed to you to complete. This will assist Lauren to style your newborn photo shoot and create beautiful memories for your family that can you treasure for a lifetime and beyond.

Step 3: During Your Photography Session

This is when all the magic happens! The hardest part of your day should be leaving the house. Once you arrive at my studio, it’s your time to relax! Have a coffee and some nibbles put your feet up because you deserve it. Some parents will even have a little nap, while I take care of their precious newborn. 

Your baby will be wrapped during your session which allows us to achieve more positions & prop setups. This ensures your baby is comfortable and warm. Safety is my number one priority, so you can rest easy knowing your newborn is in good hands.

Sibling and family photos are included in your session and will be taken first. The session will take up to 2 hours which includes your viewing session directly after your photo shoot where you see your images for the first time.

Step 4: View Your Images On Site

One of the most precious moments of the day- seeing your reaction to your baby photos. Whilst you are relaxing with your baby your photos will be displayed on the big screen. This is where you get to relive those amazing moments and pick the memories you would love to have. This is why I love doing what I do! Seeing parents reactions is a truly amazing experience. 

Specialising in exceptional bespoke wall art & printed products, you get to select from an array of incredible heirlooms to have your memories brought to life on. For me I’m a big lover of albums and have some pretty impressive ones on display! However, each family is different and we will work together to select the right fit for you. 

Whilst viewing your images, you can select your favourites and decide on which artwork and products will suit your home best. It is a good idea to take a look around your home before your appointment and decide on where you would like to display your images so that we can ensure the sizing and shape fits perfectly.I suggest for you to bring a photo of the wall or areas you have chosen so that we can create a scaled mock up for you

Guess what? You will receive your photos within one week of your session and your final collection of photos, wall art and albums within four weeks from the photo shoot!

Meet Lauren

Your Personal Baby Whisperer

I’m a creative photographer that captures breathtaking photographs of you and your family. It’s about capturing those split second moments of pure love that will be forever frozen in time. These lifelong memories are brought to life with bespoke artwork that will become a masterpiece in your home and treasured for years to come. 

What’s it like stepping foot into Laurens studio? Warm, comforting and puts you entirely at ease. During your session, Lauren will encourage you to take time out and simply relax whilst gently and delicately capturing your newborn baby and family photos. By the end of your session you will be calling her your own personal baby whisperer! Lauren, being a mum herself, knows what it’s like to have a newborn which is why she looks after both bubba and parents so that everyone can enjoy their time at her studio. 

For your safety, Lauren has invested in a hospital grade disinfection device that is COVID certified. This device is used in addition to the studio’s thorough cleaning process to protect against virus & bacteria. Lauren also uses personal protective equipment during your session so that you relax knowing that bubba will be in a safe and hygienic environment.
