The pregnancy and newborn period of your parenting journey, is a very precious time, but also a really short snippet when considering the lifetime of your parenthood. That's why it is important to capture your newborn and maternity moment, which can be done with professional photography.
Port Melbourne Mum Emma, under her business name EJM Photography has mastered the art of newborn and maternity photography.
As a Mum of three, Emma knows how to work with little babies, children and parents, too. She is also very conscious about creating a safe environment for newborn babies. Some of the artwork you see in Emma's gallery, is cleverly manipulated, to ensure no babies are put into dangerous situations.
Photography that appears to be outdoors, comprises of an indoor shoot with your beautiful newborn baby. The final image is then merged with a shot that Emma previously took in a local park. The results are natural, adorable, and 100% safe.

If you are expecting, and would like to capture your beautiful bump on camera, it is suggested you wait until you are at least 30 weeks pregnant. A shoot will take approximately 1-1.5 hours. You can choose to wear your own maternity clothes, alternatively, choose from a range of maternity dresses provided by Emma.
Newborn shoots with EJM Photography
Newborn photography needs to be shot before 12 day's old, when your little sleepy bundle is not too fidgety. For this reason, you need to book in your newborn photography session while you are pregnant; you can do so by holding a spot with EJM Photography for your due month. A newborn shoot will typically take 3 hours, to give adequate time for feeding and settling. Sibling and family shots can be included.
You are looking at costs of $200 for a newborn shoot, and prices are from $150 for a maternity photography session. Styled sessions with props are provided.
You then choose to purchase print products or digital shots at an extra cost.
