It’s always a pleasure to see families come back to the studio after doing a maternity session at Gemini Visuals – and then we get to meet their newborn baby. This beautiful little girl was a delight to photograph, and we were able to do a variety of photo set-ups with her and with mom & dad and their beloved pet too.
Newborn sessions can take anywhere from 2-4 hours to shoot, since babies can be unpredictable! We have a warm and comfortable seating area in our studio, which is perfect for nursing your baby to sleep and taking the time to calm them if necessary. Adrienne has over 20 years experience photographing newborns and is always conscious of a baby’s sleep schedule and feeding time. She will never push anything that may feel unsafe for your baby and will always keep your baby’s best interests in mind.
If you book a newborn session with Gemini Visuals, these are a few things to expect from your session:
- First, we ask that you take baby down to diaper, and then give your baby a good feed. Ideally if you can time your feedings so your newborn is ready to feed or ready for a top-up when you arrive, then your baby will be nice and sleepy.
- Adrienne will handle, soothe, and move your baby in order to get them into the perfect position for photographs.
- Don’t worry about your baby pooping, or peeing – it happens often and is all part of photographing newborns!
Our new studio location is kept very warm during your session to keep your baby calm and sleepy. It is also recommended that parents bring a change of clothes in case of accidents and also to be comfortable if you are doing your family photos first.

We can’t wait to see this family again for their Baby’s Cake Smash Session.
