Dusk & Vine Photography | Newborn Photographer Newcastle


Newborn – We like to leave plenty of time for settling, feeding and making sure everyone is relaxed so please allow between 2-4 hours for your newborn session. Try not to plan anything before the session like doctors appointments, etc. The less handling of baby the better settled they will be.

Family – Family sessions are around 45 minutes. This is to keep children excited within their attention span time frame and relatives who don’t love being in photographs happy so they can get home!

In the Dusk + Vine Studio you will find all we need for your studio newborn session. Stocked with backdrops, props, headbands, tiebacks, flower crowns, blankets and more. You may bring along something special or an heirloom also.

You can, however it works out most cost effective for you if you bundle your digitals with print and/or wall art. Dusk + Vine want your art to be kept as heirlooms to pass down on for generations and to fill your home with precious memories to admire.

Photography qualifications are a Diploma of Fine Art specialising in photography and a Cert 4 in Design specialising in photography along with other short-courses.

I am an AIPP accredited professional photographer and am always adding to my knowledge base.

I have undertaken ‘safe posing’ for newborns and children with world-renowned newborn photographer Kelly Brown alongside posing training, post-production and lighting. Health and safety is of utmost importance to me

I am accredited with the AIPP.

Yes! I believe this is very important! I am up-to-date with vaccinations and get the whooping cough booster and flu shot as required. Covid vaccinations up-to-date. As a mother of two I understand the need for these.

If I happen to be sick on the day of your session we can either reschedule or I can refer you to another trusted photographer. Please do not go ahead with your session if you or a family member are unwell. It is no problem to reschedule. Health is number 1.

Printing – it is best to have your images printed through the professional print lab used by Dusk + Vine Photography to ensure quality and longevity is maintained. There are local professional print labs also. Please avoid using cheap commercial printers like Big W or Kmart.

I have 5-6 favourite locations that I will share with you upon enquiry. You may find you have a special location to your family or a family property that you would like to use.
