Studio Newborn Photography in Camperdown

Sharing Family Memories together

I provide parents with a classic style who deeply value celebrating special family memories together. Nothing is more precious than a brand new-born baby. Tiny little fingers, toes and everything. Holding a newborn is like holding a miracle as soon as your baby starts growing you will miss them being so little.

Always Photogenic

Most new mums feel nervous and worried how they’ll look in photos, especially when exhaustion kicks in after having a newborn. It’s my job to make you feel and look your best.  I use a combination of lighting and angle techniques to give you the most flattering images, ones you’ll be proud to showcase in your home. It’s my job to direct you and make you feel comfortable. This is what I do.

Gorgeous New Studio

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

    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!

    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!
