Newborn Photography

We are the Auckland Specialist’s in Newborn Photography and Family Photography | Parnell, Auckland

Our style is serene, our expertise is second to none - the Auckland specialists in Newborn Photography, we are Photo Hive!

Newborn Photography is an art, something we have mastered through the countless families that have entrusted us to capture their precious memories.

The Newborn Experience

Our Newborn Photography Experience is a creative photo shoot designed for babies within the first 10 days up to one month of their lives. This is the best time to have a newborn photo shoot as your baby is less restless and can easily sleep for the session. In fact the sooner you are able to do the shoot the better! For this reason we highly recommend booking your newborn session with us before giving birth, that way we can guarantee this short window of opportunity.

Julia and Michael were fantastic to work with, we are so happy with the experience we had at Photo Hive. The photos are beautiful, and perfectly capture our daughter as a newborn. Thank you!

The Studio

Our newborn photography is taken in our conveniently located Parnell photo studio. We will have available to us our full accessory library which includes countless knitted by hand hats, full newborn wraps, beds, backgrounds, tutu's, blankets and baskets. We are able to easily control the environment keeping the studio nice and warm for your baby’s comfort. We use a very large shoot through umbrella to light our newborn photo sessions, we love the softness and serenity it provides, just perfect for your newborn baby.

Awesome photographers. Very professional. The most stunning newborn pics!!! So so so happy I chose them to capture our baby in his first moments of life. Would definitely use them again if we decide to have more children one day

The Photo Shoot

Once we are happy with the results we will usually move onto the family photos. Because of the lengthy photo shoot we limit family photos to immediate family (parents + siblings of newborn) however it is possible to add on additional people such as grandparents for an additional fee.

After your newborn photo shoot you will be invited back to our studio, usually within two weeks to view all the photos. This will be the first opportunity you will have to see the photos and be able to make your selections.
