Melbourne in-home newborn photography for lovers of simplicity and style. Suitable for babies up to 3 months of age.
It can be so much easier to have the photographer come to you - particularly when you are still in that newborn fog. In-home newborn sessions are super relaxed and incorporate the wraps, blankets and bespoke items that you already have at home. Dads, in particular, LOVE these sessions as they can be off doing their own thing when not needed - perfect for siblings too.

Are you immunised?
When is the best time to book my Newborn Photoshoot?
Safety of your baby is my number one priority and I always ensure that my vaccinations (including Whooping Cough and Influenza) are up to date. I am also vaccinated for COVID-19.
You can contact me at anytime during your pregnancy to let me know your expected due date, but the earlier the better as sessions often book up months in advance. At this time, and upon receipt of your deposit, I will make a tentative booking for you based on your due date. Then, within a few days of your little ones arrival, you'll need to get in touch again so that we can confirm the exact date and time of your session.
What is the best age to photograph a Newborn?
The best age to photograph a newborn baby is between 1-2 weeks. This is because babies of this age are often still naturally curled up and sleepy. I love to photograph babies of all ages though and consider the Newborn Baby stage to be anything up to 3 months.
How do I prepare my home for a Newborn Photography Session?
There is nothing special that you need to do to prepare for your in-home Newborn Photography Session and you definitely don't need a 'perfect' house. Through the use of all available natural light, I will showcase the unique beauty that is your family, in your family home, just as you are. It is helpful to remove any clutter, but please don't feel that you need to spring clean every surface. If needed, I will move things around to create the optimum shot.
WHere will you photograph my baby?
Rooms that we will most likely use during your session are the Nursery, Master Bedroom and Lounge. The first thing I'll do when I arrive is to scope out the best available light and rooms and work from there. If you have an extraordinarily dark home with limited natural light, an in-home session may not be the right choice for you.
"We had such a beautiful morning at our home with Ingrid photographing our little family. I wanted her to come back just to help us parent!"
"Ingrid manages to capture all those in-between moments that you don't even realise are happening. These are photos we will cherish for life and we cannot recommend Ingrid enough!"
"The experience that Ingrid facilitated from initial contact through to photo exchange was second to none. We felt valued, at ease and were confident that we'd made the best choice to capture our twins."
