Newborn Sessions

Erin Elizabeth Hoskins, of Erin Elizabeth Photography, is internationally renowned, and one of the most sought after newborn photographer in Australia.  Her natural and timeless work is highly regarded across the globe, and she has won multiple prestigious awards at the state, national, and international level.  Erin has taught extremely popular newborn photography workshops to hundreds of photographers all over the world.  She has spoken at numerous national and international photography conferences, and will be teaching in her fifth continent in 2016.

Erin normally books out several months in advance, so it is best to book in your newborn session while you are still pregnant.  Once booked, Erin will pencil in your due date on her calendar.  Then as soon as baby arrives, you let her know so that she can schedule the exact date and time of the session.  Newborn sessions MUST be done in the first 14 days of life (preferably between 5 and 10-days-old), so it is imperative that you contact Erin as soon as possible after your little one arrives to schedule your session.  After they pass the 14-day mark, they become less sleepy and much harder to pose.  If you happen to stumble across this site after your baby is born, Erin will do her best to try to squeeze you in before the 14-day mark, and can normally accommodate newborn sessions up to six weeks of age, pending availability.

If you have missed the six-week mark, there are plenty of other options for beautiful sessions for your little one.  Please contact Erin for further details on booking a session for babies aged 4-12 months.

Erin Elizabeth Photography is a 100% natural light photographer.  Newborn sessions take place at Erin’s Mullaloo studio.  You can expect your newborn session to last around 2-3 hours.  Newborns photograph best in their natural state so no need to provide clothes, or anything other than your beautiful baby.  Erin will take care of everything else.

What To Expect

Erin Elizabeth Photography is a 100% natural light photographer, who offers award winning newborn and family portraiture.  Newborn sessions take place at Erin’s Mullaloo studio.  Newborn sessions must be done during the first 5-10 days of life, so it’s best to book your newborn session while you are still expecting.

Maternity sessions take place either in the studio or at an outdoor location of your choice.  These are offered as mini sessions (10-12 images in your gallery) as an add-on to a full newborn session.  When booking a maternity session, you will have Erin’s full range of maternity gowns, drapes, and fabrics to choose from for your session, or if you prefer, you are welcome to bring your own clothing.

Family sessions are held outdoors in the evenings.  Erin specialises in beach sessions, but there are plenty of locations that would make a great backdrop for your family’s portraits – the park, an urban street, a friend’s farm, even an old junkyard!  Since every child and family is unique, she would be happy to help you choose a location that suits your family’s personality.  Outdoor sessions take place approximately 45 minutes prior to sunset to get that beautiful golden light.  Beach sessions take place on Mullaloo Beach, a gorgeous quiet beach in the northern suburbs of Perth.

Erin recommends allowing 45-60 minutes (2-3 hours for newborns) for your session. She encourages you to ensure your child is as well rested as possible with a full tummy.  While there is some basic posing involved, children are encouraged to play and run, to capture your family as they are.  It’s sometimes these moments that create the best images!

Erin Elizabeth Photography’s style is very relaxed, artistic, and candid.  Her goal is to capture the personality of your child, and the love of your family in truly original artworks for your home.  The smiles and giggles, the funny faces, and all the details that make your child and family unique.

For Clients

What To Wear

Erin Elizabeth Photography family session are all about capturing the essence of your family.  Erin encourages timeless clothing, to insure that your photos stand the test of time (and trends!).  Bold colours or earth tones with fun accessories such as hats, scarves, etc are fantastic.  However, she does ask that you shy away from any clothing with name brands, pictures, or words on them, which can detract from the child and give the photographs a dated look.  Simple, classic clothing is best for parents, if family photos are to be taken.  You are welcome (and encouraged!) to bring several different wardrobe changes to give your session a bit of variety.

For family photographs, Erin recommends dressing everyone in clothes that compliment each other.  For example, you might dress everyone in creams, greens, and browns, or some other complimenting colour scheme.  She asks that you try to avoid dressing everyone in the exact same colour, which can look forced and unnatural.

Feel free to bring along anything you might want to photograph WITH your child.  If they have a favorite toy or blanket, they love tea parties or skateboarding, or even if they like dressing up as a fairy princess or a superhero…these are the things that you will look back on and remember with fondness when they are grown.


Erin Elizabeth is available for photography sessions in Perth, Western Australia and elsewhere by special request.
