Logo for Newborns of Melbourne. Newborn photography coffee table book project.



“Newborns of Melbourne” is a coffee table book featuring beautiful images of Melbourne’s Newborn babies. Created by leading newborn photographer Brad Downer of Maple Gallery Photography. Supporting our chosen charity the Stillbirth Foundation Australia


To be apart of the project there is a $95.00 participation fee (normally $150) and this will be donated directly to the ‘Stillbirth Foundation Australia’. This includes your newborn photography session and guaranteed inclusion in the “Newborns of Melbourne” coffee table book.

Participation is open to all Melbourne newborns within 1-4 weeks of age. (under 2 weeks of age is preferable).

If you have personally experienced or been touched by stillbirth or have a beautiful rainbow baby we would love to feature and share your personal story in our book.

Sessions are held in our Ascot Vale studio during the week, with some limited Saturdays available (please ask).

Approx one week after your session, we’ll organise your viewing appointment where you will have the opportunity to view your images and purchase portrait products if you wish. The 2017 “Newborns of Melbourne” coffee table book will also be available for purchase for $168.00.

Sessions will close on the 20th December 2017. You can view our pricing and product information.
