Adorable Newborn Photos of Sonny

Recently I had the privilege of creating adorable newborn photos of baby Sonny. Welcomed into a wonderful family with two big brothers little Sonny is sure to enjoy a life full of adventure. It’s no secrete I love a baby with crazy newborn hair. My heart melts, little Sonny had the most amazing head of fine wispy baby hair. Add that to the cutest baby wrinkles and I’m simply in love! I couldn’t wait to share these photos. Sonny is so cute and curly. I am so excited I’ve just ordered new studio samples using this gorgeous baby boy.

Brisbane Maternity Photography

Why is Maternity photography so important?

Your body will go through many changes as pregnancy has it’s way with you.

But the biggest change will be your slow and beautiful transformation from being a woman to being a Mother.

Boudoir pregnancy portraits

Those nine months pass so quickly it’s so important to cherish every moment. If you’re looking for extra special memories of your beautiful pregnant belly and want to feel amazing I’d love to hear from you. I’m a female portrait photographer with a background in boudoir photography. I just love to make women feel beautiful from within. I believe every woman is beautiful and I love empowering women to love and cherish their pregnant bellies. Maternity portraits can be sexy and sophisticated. My photography style is elegant and timeless. I love simplicity and I aim to create emotive portraits you’ll cherish forever.

When is the best time to have maternity photos taken?

Every woman and each pregnancy is different. The best time to have maternity photos is between 30 to 36 weeks or as soon as your belly is beautiful and round. For some woman this may be as soon as 28 weeks for others their bellies may be tiny at 36 weeks. I recommend booking during your 2nd trimester and if you’re in doubt when to book give me a call for a chat. I’m very easy going and love to talk about maternity photography. You won’t ever feel any pressure to spend any amount just the enthusiasm of someone who loves what they do.

Why is boudoir maternity photography different?

It takes courage to step out of your comfort zone and book a boudoir maternity photography session. Congratulations if you’re comfortable doing this I think it’s wonderful. However most woman are a little nervous when they arrive. This is a specialised type of photography. You need to know how to flatter with delicate lighting. How to pose elegantly and most importantly you need to make a pregnant woman feel comfortable and relaxed having their photos taken. I promise I will make you feel very comfortable and carefully guide you during your photography session. I will listen carefully to any insecurities and respect your wishes to create beautiful intimate pregnancy photos.

Interested in a maternity photography session?

If you’ve reached this far thank you for taking the time reading my post. I tend to book many months in advance especially for weekends. To secure current pricing and availability I ask for a $100 deposit for your place on the calendar. Prior to your session I will ring for a chat to plan your ideal pregnancy photos and make sure I know exactly what portraits you love. If you’re nervous don’t hesitate to phone me Tracy on 0412 996 891 anytime for a chat. I want you to feel you’ve chosen the right photographer for you and wouldn’t ever make you feel pressured to book. Boudoir maternity photography is a very personal choice.

Congratulations on becoming a Mummy or Daddy, whether you’re still awaiting the arrival of your gorgeous newborn baby or maybe your little bundle of joy has arrived already.

I am so privileged to photograph newborns and I get so excited before every shoot. Creating timeless images of your newborn baby fills my heart and is so rewarding I truly LOVE babies and showing their personalities with portraits.

When your newborn arrives the world changes and the feeling of becoming a new parent is unforgettable. You’ll want to cherish those fleeting newborn moments and feel confident to hand your newborn baby over to a stranger.

Please make sure you baby is in safe experienced hands. Experience and confidence makes a good baby photographer they will know how to settle, pose and position your baby safely and effortlessly. Your newborn photographer should be a registered business, insured and fully vaccinated. Don’t hesitate to ask questions if you’re unsure.

Brisbane Northside Newborn Photography

Bee Cherished Photography in Caboolture specialise in Maternity and Newborn photography. Bee Cherished Photography have a beautiful home studio on Brisbane’s Northside located in Caboolture only 5 mins from the highway and very easy to find. The studio is home to a wide variety of gorgeous baby props and accessories to create beautiful imagery. Change table facilities are provided and a lounge to feed your baby. I want you to feel relaxed, comfortable and at home to enjoy your photography session. The studio will be warm and cosy, ideal conditions to photograph newborns.

Frequently Asked Questions

Newborn Photography Session Information

When is the best time to photograph your newborn baby?
The very best time to photograph a newborn is during the first two weeks. Generally between 5 to 10 days is ideal. They are easily settled, comfortable and contented for those lovely curly newborn poses. I love to photograph all babies so don’t worry if you’ve missed this window of opportunity, we can still capture beautiful portraits and all the tiny details.

Where will the newborn photography session take place? All sessions take place in my warm, cosy and relaxing home studio located in Caboolture. Everything is available including accessories and props. Perfect conditions for newborn babies. You don’t need to bring anything or do anything special in preparation except feed your baby if needed during your photography session.

Will Parents and siblings be included in the photos?
I aim for a selection of timeless and creative portraits including both parents and siblings. During a session with additional children I will complete family portraits first so Dad or a Grandparent may take the older children home or to a nearby park to play once their part is complete. This relieves both parents of any stress trying to keep the best behaved toddlers occupied whilst ensuring the newborn is not disturbed by excitable big brothers and loving sisters with the very best of intentions.

How long will the session take?
Please allow 2 to 4 hours for your newborn session, this ensures ample time for photos as well as important things like feeding and cuddles. I always schedule an entire morning for babies. Every session begins with a gentle touch, patience and without time restrictions. Newborn session information will be emailed to you following your booking and paid deposit.

When should I book?
It makes perfect sense to plan ahead if you’ve found the photographer of your choice. If you’d like to book a session, I recommend booking during your pregnancy to secure your special date and current pricing. I limit the amount of newborn sessions each week to ensure the highest quality of service to each family and availability. A tentative date for your newborn session will be made using your due date. A deposit of $100 is required at the time of booking for your place on the calendar. If your baby has already arrived I will always try to schedule a session as soon as possible. For availability I can be contacted on 0412 996 891 or

What should I wear?
The studio will be heated, perfect conditions for newborns. Please wear cool and comfortable clothing, I recommend bringing a change of clothing in the event of a mishap during your photos. I tend to photograph babies naked so little accidents are part of everyday life in the studio. Plain soft muted colours photograph well or many parents choose to wear plain black. Some parents will have photos taken skin to skin for that timeless look. Please avoid logos if possible and large distracting patterns.

What happens after your portrait session?
Your photos are edited and ready to view within two weeks with a password protected online gallery. A sneak peek will be available within 24 hours. Once your selection is complete, your portrait collection will be ready  in 3 to 4 weeks.

How to choose a newborn baby photographer?


Safety is my priority and I never put any babies at risk my safety policies are

  1. Your babies comfort is of utmost importance to me I believe every baby has comfortable positions and are born with a personality which I respect
  2. I always have a parent next to a baby when using a prop and photographing certain positions
  3. I would always have my camera strap around my neck when taking photos from above
  4. I only use baby safe props and would never use breakable objects especially glass
  5. I make sure your baby is supported during every pose in a comfortable and safe position
  6. I would never leave your baby unattended in a prop or on a posing newborn bean bag or with a sibling or pet
  7. I am happy to say no to unsuitable requests for safety


With so many amazing newborn photographers around it’s important  to love their style of photography.  We are all drawn to colours, textures and style. Make sure your photographer suits your personal style and you love their photography. Make sure you love their galleries and check they have a diverse gallery with different babies. Experience and repetition will leave you feeling confident for consistent results. If you’re looking for artwork to display in your home you’ll want a certain style and guaranteed success and safety.

Personality and experience

Will you feel relaxed and confident during your photography session? Choosing a photographer to create life long memories is so important. Look at their website. Consider their experience with newborn photography. Do they have good reviews? Are they a registered business? Are they insured. Is your photographer vaccinated against whooping cough?

“Australian Institute of Professional Photographers”

I am proud to be a fully accredited member of the AIPP. What does it mean to be a member? An Accredited Professional Photographer is a photographer, who doesn’t just claim to be a “professional” but earns that title by successfully completing the rigorous AIPP accreditation process. Accreditation is designed to give you, the consumer, confidence that your Professional Photographer is a proven, experienced, technically capable, professional practitioner, who complies with all legal business requirements, has appropriate insurance and who is willing to agree to the mandatory Code of Professional Practice and to the requirement to continually improve their photographic skills by committing to continue their professional development.

How much does newborn photography cost?

Photos are lifelong memories, whilst budget is important please don’t make this your first priority when choosing your photographer! Newborn photography costs can vary greatly. It is important to remember that a professional full time photographer put much more into a session than just the time spent with you. Running a legal business and continuing with ongoing education, Upgrading equipment and other business expenses will almost always be more expensive. When booking your session please remember you get what you pay for. Professional photography is a luxury item. Having a baby can be expensive and every family’s finances and priorities will vary. Think about what’s important to you and how much are your memories worth?


I am a huge believer if you pay for a professional photographer you deserve a professional printed archival product. Please print your photos! Technology is great but we all know sometimes unreliable. Don’t leave your photos on a USB hidden. A good quality archival print will stand the test of time. With so many stunning products available make sure you have your beautiful photos on display to enjoy.

Frequently asked Questions

When should I book a Maternity session?

Anytime after 30 weeks or as soon as your belly is beautiful and round is a good time. This will vary with every woman and each pregnancy. I think it’s nice to be comfortable to move around and feel good. Please don’t leave it too late just in case your baby decides to make early entrance. I recommend booking your session early to secure a place on the calendar

Why choose a Studio Maternity Session?

Studio maternity shoots are wonderful for those couples looking for a more intimate photo shoot or perhaps not so comfortable having photos. All photos are edited by myself and privacy issues are highly respected. I only share images with your consent.

What should I wear?

It makes perfect sense to plan what to wear for your maternity photos. I supply beautiful pregnancy outfits/wraps designed for each unique and beautiful pregnancy shape. Feminine and romantic, conservative, elegant and stylish or sophisticated and sexy, every woman is different and each shoot is approached with careful planning and understanding. I will phone for a chat prior to your session so you are fully prepared and confident for your portrait session. It is recommended you bring along the following

  • a strapless bra (nude or flesh coloured if possible)

  • long pants either jeans, dress pants or chinos
  • Plain shirts in solid colours such as black, grey or white (please avoid any logos)
Is hair styling and make up available?

Yes for an additional cost Bee Cherished can definitely recommend a hair stylist and makeup artist or organise one for you. I highly recommend Sam from Samantha Kate Makeup for the perfect make over. click here to visit the website

I’m interested in a boudoir maternity shoot and I don’t like my …..

Yes we all have insecurities about certain body parts .. wobbly bits .. cellulite .. stretch marks .. veins the list goes on .. it’s okay we are all critical of ourselves at times. No matter your body type I can create flattering images. Careful positioning, correct choice of lingerie, delicate lighting are all part of choosing to use a professional boudoir photographer and of course strategically placed fabrics. Bee Cherished Photography love to share beautiful imagery however your privacy is of utmost importance to me and your images will be treated with discretion and according to your individual requests. All boudoir images are only shared with your consent. The majority of our boudoir images remain private. All images are photographed and edited by myself and developed in a professional photography lab.

What if I’m not very confident?

That’s perfectly normal, I will have you feeling relaxed very quickly and guide you during your session to create portraits you’ll treasure forever.



People say I’m very calming and make people feel comfortable .. please feel welcome to phone for a chat anytime

One of the best things about newborn photography is meeting the families. I love three generation photos! Mother’s and Grandmother’s please exist in photos!

It was so lovely to meet this family and photograph the three generations.

Pregnancy yoga with Trudy

pregnancy yoga teacher Brisbane Northside

What are the benefits of yoga during your pregnancy?

Pregnancy yoga with Trudy

As a photographer I have the pleasure to meet many people from all walks of life. It’s no secret I will often notice during a photo shoot pregnant Mummies who either enjoy yoga, Pilates or may be dancers. I have an eye for detail and these ladies know how to naturally hold themselves and makes my job easy. Over the years one name has continually been mentioned as the most amazing yoga teacher. Trudy is a well known and highly respected local yoga teacher. Without ever meeting Trudy I already liked this woman and had a huge amount of respect just by listening to her yoga students speak about her. Her reputation as an amazing pregnancy yoga teacher and her positive attitude and infectious laughter doesn’t disappoint. I’ve photographed several of her pregnant Mummies recently and it prompted me to make contact. I feel privileged to have met Trudy and excited to start helping Trudy with my photography. What an inspirational woman and I love her passion and enthusiasm. Trudy is providing the most amazing support and education for pregnant women.

The benefits of yoga during your pregnancy are many. Yoga helps during your pregnancy, birth and recovery not to mention the positive mental influence and confidence you will feel. Trudy’s classes are so very welcoming and very affordable. I highly recommend Trudy and you won’t regret booking in for any of Trudy’s classes.

What does yoga pregnancy look like?

Have you ever thought about taking a yoga pregnancy class? Are you wondering what it’s like? These photos were so much fun to take and represent a small snippet of what a pregnancy yoga class looks like. If you’re wondering if you’ll enjoy it the answer is definitely yes if Trudy is taking your class. I’m sure  you couldn’t stop this wonderful person smiling and spreading happiness. Her enthusiasm and her passion to support, encourage and educate pregnant women is unstoppable. Trudy is also a birth doula and a spinning babies parent educator. Her intriguing journey towards her chosen path makes perfect sense and it’s easy to see why she is so successful and loved by so many. Trudy you are an amazing person and you have changed so many women’s birth stories into memorable treasured moments with your support. I am so pleased to share your talented work and love for helping women. Congratulation on your achievements.

pregnancy yoga photos Brisbane Northsidepregnancy yoga photos Brisbane Northsidepregnancy yoga photos Brisbane Northside

The following is Trudy’s story in her own words

How Trudy became a pregnancy yoga teacher

I became a Pregnancy Yoga Teacher and a Birth Doula because of the way I was treated and the things that I went through with the births of my own children.  My births was traumatic and even though I am ok with it now – its been 22 years and 19 years now – I sometimes still have a word or a thought come back to me and I wish that I had had the support from someone that I give to pregnant women everyday.

We only had yoga on tv, I had never heard of pregnancy yoga until I became a Yoga Teacher myself in 2013.  I had booming classes that were full every single week with people from all walks of life, but whenever a pregnant lady would turn up I would not refuse her in class, but kind of freeze inside wondering if her baby was ok with the poses we were doing.

pregnancy yoga teacher Brisbane Northside

Pregnancy yoga specifically tailored to your pregnant body shape with Trudy

I had the very basic of pregnancy yoga trainings, and I felt that this wasn’t enough so I went searching for something, anything that would give me more than a weekends training. You see the pregnant body is so different to ours, and many yoga poses – modified or not – can be harmful to mother and baby.

Finally I found a course that would take 6 months of inclassroom (every second weekend) and researching and homework, it was one of the most intense courses I have ever done and I am so glad that I did.  I am actually the only Pregnancy Yoga Teacher between Chermside and Maroochydore (that I know of) and im very proud of the studio and the work we do in there.

Essentially  Pre Natal / Pregnancy yoga classes are dedicated to women from 14 weeks gestation to full term to tone, relax and strengthen their body during their pregnancy.

This is such a wonderful opportunity to meet and discuss pregnancy related topics with other women and take one hour of your day ‘just for you and your baby’.

Birth Doula | What’s it all about and what do they do? by Trudy

 A Doula enhances your experience, working alongside your Midwife. We work together to help you, in life’s most beautiful experience. Your birthing partner is very important to me and they will be supported in every possible way.

Being a Birth Doula is amazing, I wish I had engaged in one with all of my pregnancies.  My own births led me here – when I work with a birthing couple we are all as one.  Noone is any better at anything, we all work together in harmony.  When there is peace, love, nurturing, right words at the right time, the birthing mother can relax into her body and be at total peace.  We can massage, belly lift, move and remind her to breathe, this is an experience that she will always remember.

I love birth, being the voice between birthing mother and medical staff, I love working alongside everyone, it’s a moment in time that everyone remembers, Mother, Baby, Birthing Partner, Staff, Doula.  There are so many comfort measures that can be used and are used when I am in birth suite.

Our first meeting is obligation free: a coffee and chat – call/text 0448104642 or email so we can organise a time that suits us both.

Birth is a personal journey so we need to make sure we are a good match.  A connection of calm and trust between birthing mother, birthing partner and birth Doula is very important.

If you engage me as your Birth Doula, we will be chatting a lot, emailing, texting and meeting for coffee. This is a life changing journey you are on, and only you know what you need, I’ll provide information that unlocks feelings and emotions within you so you know how you want your birth to play out, what you do and do not want. We work through any fears and concerns and work around them.

Two Prenatal gatherings at a coffee shop or my studio filled with love and everything birth related.

Exciting times ahead as we meet for a Movement and Breath Class that entails invaluable information for you and your birth partner.  This includes labour positions and breathe work, how to make you more comfortable.  This is a 2 hour class and be prepared for lots of laughter as we have a great time in every class.  Click here to enquire for more info.

I am always here for you – call, text, email, my phone is always with me, ask me anything.

Creation of your birth plan is an exciting time, we write down everything as we discuss what you do and do not want, put it all together and when you are happy with it pop it in your labour bag.

I am honoured to be on call for you from 37 – 42 weeks.

My role is emotional and physical support (non medical) I encourage you all the way.

Labour and Birth attendance, I do not leave your side from when I am notified of established labour to when you are ‘all’ comfortable and settled in your ‘bubble of baby bliss’.

Two x one hour debrief following your birth.

I am that wonderful, nurturing, loving person with knowledge, wisdom and trust. I am the ‘glue’ that helps keep it all together.

Spinning Babies | What is it? by Trudy

Spinning Babies is just the best – im the only person in Australia to teach – Spinning Babies Parent Educator Class – and that in itself is huge as we are helping Change The Way We Birth On Earth.

I went to Minneapolis in April of this year to learn from the very best in the birth world but I can away with so much more.  That being knowledge, friendships were ignited from all over the world, there were 40 of us and it was truly a magical experience to be there and to learn with these people.  At one point there was a snow blizzard and that prevented us from leaving our hotel, so we all met downstairs ordered from the limited menu at the bar and sat and talked for hours on end about birth, pregnancy, our own lives, our work, etc.  The conversations just flowed and I loved it.

Spinning Babies helps women to become more aware of their body, balance, movement and gravity.  When everything is right and no tightness in the hips, lower back or pelvic region – we do this by child birth education, 3 sisters of balance and everyday essentails, baby should move into the correct position during pregnancy and be in the ideal position for birth.  It’s the most amazing knowledge to pass onto anyone really, but during pregnancy its essential.

Im in love with what I am able to do to help women, to be able to move, breathe, stretch and meditate, to child birth education to being their birth doula and post natal yoga.

My favourite age to photograph newborns

The best age to photograph newborn babies is before 2 weeks old. My favourite age is anywhere between 6 to 10 days old. At this age newborns are usually pretty sleepy and very comfortable to be posed into those curly newborn poses. Mum’s milk supply has usually kicked in. Your baby may develop milk spots or colic when they are a little older. Some parents may find the thought of heading out with a newborn the first time a little daunting. Our studio has everything available you need. You don’t need to do anything special to prepare for your newborn photography session. You can relax in a very comfortable environment and enjoy watching your newborn have photos taken. Please be aware there are often many reasons why you may not be able to make a newborn photography session within the first 2 weeks. If this is you I love to photograph babies of all ages.

Just love sharing a few photos of gorgeous newborn baby girl Brya

Gorgeous little newborn Brya was a week old for her newborn photos. Last week I had the pleasure to see that cute little face. Brya looks so different already. Those cute newborn rolls and features are so fleeting but so very special. Make sure you capture your newborn baby to remember every precious little detail.

Maternity Timeline Photos Brisbane

Celebrate your pregnancy with maternity timeline photos! Have you ever wanted to remember every detail of something special? Sometimes in life we may be guilty of taking things for granted. Becoming a Mother is an extra special gift for some people. As a photographer I feel so privileged to record those extra special moments in peoples lives. I love to listen to stories. My heart is filled with joy hearing successful IVF journeys. I’ve been very fortunate to photograph 4 maternity timelines. Every pregnancy was different. They all shared one thing in common. Every timeline has surprised me. I had no idea how much I’d enjoy the experience. I became so emotionally involved  and super excited with every visit. Yes I confess to shedding a tear along the way! Happy tears!  I would rush to answer the door just to see the physical changes every visit. It is an absolute pleasure and I am so honored to be a small part of your pregnancy. Thank you so very much Lindsay for allowing me to photograph your maternity timeline.

IVF Success

Last year I had the amazing experience of photographing a very special Mummy’s pregnancy timeline. I am filled with gratitude. Words cannot express how much joy photographing these maternity timeline photos brought me. Congratulations on becoming parents Mark and Lindsay! I am thrilled you are now parents to baby Luka. He is so very loved and lucky to have two wonderful parents.

Lindsay at 12 weeks so super excited, she couldn’t stop smiling it was still a bit surreal .. Lindsay was about to become a Mummy! Our first photo session I’m pretty sure Lindsay had to pee about 3 times!! So funny!! Every visit from then she just headed straight to the loo after our initial hello’s .. this become part of our routine we joked about.

Mark and Lindsay and their romantic journey to parenthood

Mark and Lindsay decided to get married and wanted it to be simple but still amazing. They chose a beautiful location in the USA. A plantation home called Oak Alley Plantation in Louisiana. They organised the entire wedding from Brisbane and it was all pre arranged in advance. Together they embarked on a 4 week trip around the Southern states of the USA and eloped 1 week into the trip. Lindsay said it was magical and a dream come true, she felt like a southern belle for the day. 

Mark and Lindsay wanted to start a family and felt it was the right time.  Lindsay has endometriosis so falling pregnant naturally didn’t happen. Choosing to investigate IVF was the next step. Together the couple underwent the first round of IVF last year and it worked!!  They were incredibly excited and feeling very blessed about it happening so quickly after starting the IVF procedure.  Lindsay had absolutely no morning sickness, only tiredness and crazy hunger so in general she felt great. Lindsay’s due date was the 15th March 2018…however she was hoping and praying that the baby would make a late entrance because she had purchased tickets to see Ed Sheehan at Suncorp on the 21st March! Lindsay quoted “I just can’t miss the concert!!!” Also declaring she would be happy to go into labour in her seat if needed. Haha. I’m pleased to say thankfully that didn’t happen and baby Luka made an early appearance.

36 weeks pregnant maternity timeline photos Brisbane

36 weeks

Our final pregnancy timeline photo shoot at 36 weeks. I was a little sad for the maternity timeline photos to finish but so happy and excited to meet the new arrival. Lindsay looked stunning all the way through her pregnancy and stayed very active and healthy. Lindsay continued to exercise right up until the day she went into labour. I can honestly say this is so rewarding and exciting to see and document the growth of new life. From the very start when this little baby was the size of a lime approximately only 2 inches long all the way through the pregnancy. By the time baby Luka visited the studio he already had a huge place in my heart. This is the adorable Luka from his newborn photography shoot. He really is so cute .. this is one family that will forever remain etched into my memories. I look forward to watching little Luka grow.

I decided to photograph Lindsay a few different ways to show her beautiful growing belly. The first version is a little bit unique and different to the traditional versions. Below is a traditional view of the pregnancy belly and really shows the maternity timeline and the pregnant body changing. If you’ve just celebrated becoming pregnant and would like maternity timeline photos I would love to hear from you. I promise you will be so happy you have those memories to look back on. This is real history and story telling from the very beginning. Regular visits are scheduled personally to suit you. Timeline photos could be 3 visits or if requested 5 to 7 visits. Each timeline visit only takes around 15 minutes in the studio. Bookings can be make separate to a main maternity portrait session. Little Luka will know how much he is loved from when he was just a dream.
