Newborns of Melbourne was created after two of our close friends experienced first hand the devastating loss of Stillbirth.  We were completely shocked and saddened by this news and also totally unaware of how often this happens every day in Australia.

Therefore, several years later we decided to start Newborns of Melbourne charity project with our newborn photography sessions to donate and help raise funds and awareness for Stillbirth Foundation Australia. 

Currently in Australia six babies are born still everyday. Our babies are precious, and this shocking statistic reminds us what a truly wonderful gift they are! Booking a Newborns of Melbourne session will help raise funds for Stillbirth Foundation Australia. To reduce stillbirth through research, education and advocacy as well produce beautiful photographs of your newborn for you to love forever.

Simone Papa


We absolutely love our newborn photos from Maple Gallery. Suze was great in keeping in contact before our session in relation to baby’s birth date and changed the date as needed. Brad was incredible throughout the shoot and managed to get the most perfect shots for us. We cannot recommend highly enough. Thankyou for capturing our baby boy in his first few weeks of life, photos we will cherish for a life time ☺️

MUM TO BABY Ameila - 3 weeks

Maple Gallery provided us with the most friendly and professional service for our newborn Photoshoot. The photos of our first baby girl turned out so beautiful, we can’t stop showing them to family and friends! Brad did such a great job catering to the style of photos we wanted and also did an amazing job at soothing our little girl when she wasn’t behaving the best through the shoot. Thank you Brad and Suze for our bub’s photos for us to always treasure as new parents 😊

We had such a wonderful experience from Maple Gallery! Brad was our photographer, he was so patient, calm and professional. A true baby whisperer.  My husband and I were just astonished at how experienced he was at settling our baby for the photos. The photos just spoke for themselves. He captured our son exactly how we envisioned, and in his natural, quirky poses that we will keep and cherish forever. Suze was wonderful, very warm and friendly. She organised and met our wishes- touching base with us about our gorgeous album, when it was sent and reaching out to us ensuring we received it alright. Highly recommend Maple Gallery to your newborn shoot.
