The journey of pregnancy & the arrival of your newborn

Maternity and Newborn Photography in Warrnambool

Document the journey of pregnancy and the arrival of your newborn.

I believe that relationships are key to happiness in life and I wan’t nothing more than to preserve the newly formed bonds with you and your newborn. I want to create opportunities for you to enjoy the moment instead of being distracted by technology and everyday life.

Here’s what I know for sure, that life passes by quickly, and if you blink you’ll miss the best parts. You’ll never be loved in a way a little person needs you and you’ll never want to forget how it feels. I will help you remember this special time in your lives.

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

After the exhaustion of just having a baby, most new mums worry how they’ll look in photos. It’s my job to make you feel comfortable so you can be your gorgeous self, 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 them in your home. “Many of my clients  favourite images are the one of baby AND mum!”

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

It’s most important to me that your session is relaxed and stress-free so it’s an enjoyable experience.  It’s an opportunity for you to kick back and rest 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.

    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!
