Newborn, Maternity and Family Sessions

Erin Elizabeth Hoskins, of Erin Elizabeth Photography, is internationally renowned, and one of the most sought after newborn, maternity and family 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 has taught extensively in six continents (I’ll get there one day, Antarctica!!).

Erin normally books out several months in advance, so it is best to book in your session ahead of time.  Maternity sessions are best done between 30-36 weeks and newborn sessions are best done in the first few weeks (but can be done up to six weeks).  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 –

What To Expect

Erin Elizabeth Photography is an award winning photographer, who offers award winning newborn, maternity images and family portraiture.  Newborn sessions take place at Erin’s Mullaloo studio.  Newborn sessions are best done during the first 5-14 days of life, so it’s best to book your newborn session while you are still expecting.  But if your baby has already arrived, no problem at all!  Send us an email and we can get you scheduled in ASAP –

Maternity sessions take place either in the studio or at an outdoor location of your choice.  These are offered as half sessions (10-15 images in your gallery) as a standalone session, or 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 25-45 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.  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.

For newborn sessions, you only need to bring your baby – all props, backgrounds, wraps, hats and headbands are provided by Erin.  Sibling photos are best in lighter colours and family photos can be either lighter colours or darker colours (depending on your preference).

For maternity photo sessions, you don’t need to worry about a thing!  Choose from Erin’s extensive maternity gown collection and be a princess for a day.  Capture this special time in your lives without the stress of looking for something to wear.

For family photos, 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.

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.  You are welcome (and encouraged!) to bring several different wardrobe changes to give your session a bit of variety.


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