Maple Gallery Photography specialise in contemporary and timeless newborn photography in melbourne. The precious ‘newborn’ state is so fleeting, and as parents ourselves, we believe it is important to create lifetime mementoes with beautiful newborn photography. Mementos that can be passed down from generation to generation as pictorial heirlooms…

Principal photographer Brad Downer is well-known amongst many as the ‘baby whisperer’. Quite a badge of honour! The baby whispering magic happens at our comfortable, temperature-controlled Ascot Vale studio, where you can expect your newborn photography session to last around 3 hours. This enables mum the opportunity to stop and settle bub or feed without pressure, and most importantly allows everyone to relax and enjoy the experience.

We usually recommend taking your newborn pictures at around 5-14 days old. They are so sleepy in those early days, it is the perfect time to capture little curly sleeping beauty baby shots!

In our cosy studio, you will have access to all kinds of backdrops, creative lighting, beautiful blankets. Or feel free to bring along an object that means something special to you.

After your newborn photography session we will invite you back to the studio to view your little one’s photos, and select your favourite way of ‘preserving’ your precious pictorial heirlooms for generations to come. We offer a wide variety of beautiful presentation products including classic linen-covered newborn albums, canvas wall art and mounted images ready for you to frame to your taste.

Newborn sessions run for approx 3 hours and take place in our Ascot Vale studio only. Due to demand we highly recommend pre-booking your session while still pregnant, as it can always be moved if your birth occurs sooner or later than expected. Otherwise if your bub has already arrived, give us a call as soon as possible so we can book you into the first available session time.
