Natural Newborn Photography in Warrnambool

Warrnambool Newborns and Families

Document the sense of wonderment only a newborn can bring

Because each day your babies wake up a little bigger, a little older and need you a little less. You’ll never be loved in a way a little person needs you and you’ll never want to forget how it feels.

Our style is natural, simple, beautiful and honest. We service Warrnambool families and clients travel from as far as Geelong, Colac and Ballarat areas.

Most new mums worry how they’ll look in photos, especially when exhaustion kicks in after having a newborn. It’s my job to make you feel comfortable so you can be your gorgeous self, to look and feel your best.  I use a combination of lighting and angle techniques to give you the most flattering images that will make you proud to show in your home. “Many of my clients  favourite images is often one of baby AND mum!” I understand how important this is – poor mum usually misses out on being in photos because we are the ones taking them! 


Our brand-new studio is located in Camperdown and has perfect natural lighting to capture those soft, stunning highlights that you see in my images. In studio, we are able to maintain the perfect environment to keep baby settled and comfortable during the entire session. Newborns must be kept cosy and warm to achieve those beautiful slumber poses.

It’s very important to me that your session is relaxed, stress-free and an enjoyable experience.  It’s an opportunity for you to kick back and have some down time while I handle your baby with the utmost care and attention.


I’m a mum of two young kids (here’s a little bit about me!) Bonnie and Rueben. I live in beautiful Camperdown Victoria and family commitments have me offering VERY LIMITED session per month. This allows you a customised experience and the time and care you deserve. I’m so passionate about newborns. It’s an amazing experience to see the connections you have with your family.  If you’re thinking of booking I’d love to hear from you but please don’t wait too long. We are often booked out 3 months in advance.

Everyone deserves to have images that capture the special bond between family members.

    It's Jess, your go-to newborn photographer, and today let's chat about one of those adorable quirks that often steal the spotlight during our newborn sessions – hiccups!


    Ever wondered why those tiny, hiccupping symphonies happen? Well, fear not; I've got the inside scoop for you!


    Warrnambool Newborn Photography


    1. Baby's Superpower: Developing Diaphragm

    Newborns are like little superheroes in training, and their hiccups are a sign that their diaphragm, the muscle responsible for breathing, is flexing and getting stronger. It's like their own mini gym session, preparing them for those hearty belly laughs and future superhero feats.



    2. Gastrointestinal Adventure

    Sometimes, those cute hiccups are just a part of your baby's digestive journey. Their tiny tummies are navigating the ins and outs of processing milk, and hiccups can be a natural outcome of this gastrointestinal adventure.



    3. The Learning Curve

    Just like we stumble while learning to walk, newborns might hiccup as they figure out the whole breathing-and-swallowing coordination dance. It's all part of the learning curve, and trust me, they'll be mastering it like pros in no time!



    4. The Calming Effect

    Believe it or not, hiccups can actually have a calming effect on your little one. It's like a rhythmic lullaby, creating a soothing pattern that might even help them drift off to sleep. Ah, the magic of baby hiccups!

    So, the next time your precious bundle of joy breaks into a hiccuping melody during our photoshoot, know that it's just another note in the beautiful symphony of babyhood. 🎶



    Common Questions about hiccups:


    How do I stop my baby's hiccups?

    To ease your baby's hiccups, try gentle burping, offering a pacifier, or letting them suck on a small feed. Patience is key; hiccups often resolve on their own.


    Do hiccups mean the baby is OK?

    Yes, hiccups are usually harmless and common in newborns. They often signify a developing nervous system and are not typically a cause for concern.


    Why does my baby hiccup for no reason?

    Newborns hiccup frequently, and sometimes seemingly without cause. It's a normal part of their development, linked to the maturation of the diaphragm and respiratory system.


    What is the purpose of hiccups in infants?

    Hiccups in infants serve a developmental purpose, helping to strengthen the diaphragm and respiratory muscles. While their exact function isn't fully understood, they're considered a natural part of a baby's growth.


    Should you sit the baby up with hiccups?

    While it's not necessary, you can try holding your baby upright or allowing them to suck on a pacifier. However, most hiccups will resolve on their own without intervention.


    How long should newborn hiccups last?

    Newborn hiccups are typically short-lived and can last anywhere from a few minutes to around 20 minutes. If they persist for longer periods, it's always a good idea to consult with your pediatrician.


    And hey, if you're curious about capturing these delightful moments (hiccups included) in a frame, I've got you covered!
