Brisbane Newborn photography studio
Hi I'm Tracy from Bee Cherished Photography
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.
If you're looking for a caring and gentle photographer to capture every tiny detail of your newborn squishy baby I'd love to meet you. 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 LOVE babies and showing their little personalities with photography.
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. Newborn photography is a specialised field unlike other photography you are handing over your newborn baby to a complete stranger to handle and photograph. Your baby is in safe experienced hands. I have photographed 100's of babies and have been photographing newborns since 2013. I know how to confidently comfort and settle your baby. I am a registered business, insured and I am fully vaccinated. Baby safety is my priority and I aim to create an emotive diverse range of unique imagery whilst you are feeling relaxed and comfortable.
I want you to love every photo and enjoy the entire experience.In a sea of newborn photographers it can be difficult to choose the right one. Thank you for stopping by and considering Bee Cherished Photography.

Highly recommend Tracy
Couldn't have asked for better photos, absolutely amazing. Had maternity and newborn with both my children with her.
She was so patient with my toddler and newborn ensuring she got the most memorable photos while making sure the whole family was comfortable relaxed and not rushed.
Tracy listened to any requests made by my husband and I making us feel very welcomed.
Most importantly she has an amazing eye for photography while being so passionate about it too.
Thank you for such precious memories to look back on Tracy

Frequently asked questions
When is the best time to photograph your baby?
The best time to photograph a newborn is during the first two weeks. Ideally between 7 to 10 days. At this age they are easily settled, comfortable and contented for those cute curly newborn poses. I love to photograph all babies, if you've missed this window of opportunity we can still capture beautiful photos and all the tiny details
Where is the studio located?
All sessions take place in a cosy relaxing and private studio located on Brisbane's Northside in Caboolture. Only 5 minutes from the highway and easy to find. Plenty of parking available and wheelchair friendly. The studio is home to the most adorable hand knitted props and the softest textures in soft muted tones and timeless neutrals. Everything needed to photograph your baby is available.
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 photos first so a family member or friend 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.
What should I wear?
The studio is warm and cosy, 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.Soft muted colour tones, neutrals and textures look great in photos. Think of timeless colours and subtle patterns that won't date. Many parents choose classic white or black. Pinterest is a great place to look for inspiration For other ideas read a blog I've written on what to wear
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. As a guide most people will be here around 2.5 hours excluding twins. Newborn session information will be emailed prior to your date of photography.
When should I book newborn photos?
If you've found the photographer of your choice it makes perfect sense to plan ahead. I recommend booking during your pregnancy to secure availability and current pricing. Newborn sessions are limited to 3 a week to ensure the highest quality of service to each family. Anytime after your 20 week scan we book your newborn due date. A deposit of $100 is required at the time of booking.If your baby has already arrived I will always try to schedule a session as soon as possible.
How long before I receive my photos?
I understand you will be excited to see your photos! Enjoy a sneak peek to social media or emailed on the day of your session. Within 2 weeks of your session your photos will be edited and uploaded to an online gallery. Once you've chosen your favourite images and placed your order your newborn photography package will be ready in 4 weeks.
Is hair and makeup styling available?
Yes I can organise a professional stylist who is amazing and very skilled.
Hair and Makeup can be booked in studio. All stylist are fully vaccinated. Hair and makeup needs to be booked in advance.
Your babies comfort is of utmost importance. I believe every baby has comfortable positions and are born with a personality which I respect
I always have a parent next to a baby when using a prop and photographing certain positions
I always have my camera strap around my neck when taking photos from above
I only use baby safe props and would never use breakable objects
I make sure your baby is supported during every pose in a comfortable and safe position
I would never leave your baby unattended in a prop, a posing newborn bean bag, with a sibling or pet
I am happy to say no to unsuitable requests for safety
Please do not come to the studio if you or a family member are unwell I'm happy to reschedule
how to choose a newborn photographer
Style and personality
Do you love neutrals and soft muted colour tones? Are you looking for timeless and emotive simplicity? It's important to love your chosen photographers 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. Do you like their family posing? Check their galleries and make sure they have a diverse portfolio with different babies. Are you in love with their sibling photos? 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.
Will you feel relaxed and confident during your photography session? choosing a photographer to create life long memories is so important. Consider their experience and do they have good reviews?
Products and packages
What products are available? Will you like the packages? I am a huge believer if you pay for a professional photographer you deserve a professional printed archival product. Technology is great but we all know sometimes unreliable. Please print your photos! 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 family photos on display to enjoy. Bee Cherished Photography have something for everyone and any decor. Choose what you love! Wall art, portrait boxes or albums. Every family is unique and your family heirlooms are precious.
How much does newborn photography cost?
Photographs 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 having a baby can be costly and every family's finances and priorities will vary. Think about what's important to you and how much are your memories worth?
I'm excited and confident to offer high quality products to last many generations. I know how precious your memories are. Newborn photography packages start from $795. Thank you for supporting a local family business!
What is a professional photographer?
I am proud to be a fully accredited member of the AIPP.
"Australian Institute of Professional Photographers"
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.
