Baby Photographs: Amelia’s Baby Shoot
Date: April 2017
We all love baby photographs! Newborns are so photogenic, so cute and so cuddly and it is every Mum and Dad’s wish to capture some amazing baby photographs of their beautiful newborn before they get too big!
Happily A Thousand Miles Photography specialise in baby photographs and newborn photography and can capture your beautiful new arrival in the comfort of your own home! We have several newborn photography package options, including the option of visiting our studio in Alexandra Hills, and for us to do the photo shoot in the comfort of your own home!
We have a fantastic array of blankets, wraps and baskets to make the shoot run smoothly and we do recommend bringing along any toys and props that you would like to have in the photographs.
I knew Kelly and Rob from a couples photo shoot we had done earlier in the year so I leapt at the chance to capture Amelia, their beautiful new arrival!
We did the photos at their place in Birkdale and were rewarded with great light and a well behaved Little Miss!
We managed to get some sleeping shots, some waking photos, some photos with Mum and Dad and some baby photos of Amelia in her own room. The great thing about doing a newborn photo shoot with us is that you get the high resolution images on a disc, so there’s no need to dig out crumpled, old photos on their 21st birthday!
Brisbane Newborn Photographer:
Location: Wynnum West
Date: January 2018
I love being a Brisbane Newborn Photographer! There is something so amazingly rewarding about capturing something so gorgeous, so delicate and so beautiful and I never see a job as work!
I think having two of my own helps! I know how the meltdowns go, and when to hold off from the photos to allow Bub the chance to feed or have a cuddle. Moreover, I don’t stress when the meltdowns do happen; it is all a natural part of being a Brisbane newborn photographer!
Happily I didn’t have to stress with our beautiful little model, Jasmine! She was a star from the start with minimal fuss and managing to sleep almost all the way through her newborn photo shoot!
It also helped that Mum and Dad were superstars too! Derek and Belinda were very calm (even if Derek did insist on pulling out his Liverpool FC scarf! Red rag to a bull for a Manchester United support like myself!) and had a lot of fun throughout the newborn photography session.
We finished up the session with some family photographs, then we left Jasmine to sleep without the camera!
A few days following the newborn photo shoot, I received a card in the post from Mum and Dad with a photo of jasmine on the front and a touching message inside. That is what it is all about! When your job allows you to do something as amazing and meaningful as newborn photography, then you know your job is a lot of fun!
Dear Andy, Just a short note to sat thank you for the beautiful photos you took of Jasmine and us – we are really delighted with them and they will give us some wonderful memories. Belinda, Derek and Jasmine
Baby Photography: Xavier’s NewBorn Photos
I truly adore doing baby photography! Maybe it is because I have two babies of my own (OK, they are 6 and 2 years old now, so maybe they are not exactly babies anymore!) but to photograph those beautiful little bundles of joy, and to capture their gorgeous innocence and cuteness is a privilege I will never take for granted!
And beautiful little Xavier was no exception! Like all babies, he was curious as to who this strange-sounding guy was when I turned up but he soon got used to me and slept. I always say that during a typical two hour newborn photo shoot, if we have an hour for photography and an hour for feeding/crying/changing/soothing etc, then we are doing pretty well!
We managed to get a fantastic mix of photos with Xavier and got some of him awake, some with Mum and Dad, and some of him looking incredibly cute and beautiful curled up and snoozing on his own!
I always like to get some close-up shots too, to highlight their beautiful little hands, feet and ears. Trust me when I say this: they don’t stay that little for long!
We have two options for baby photography and newborn photo shoots; come to our studio in Alexandra Hills or we can come to you! We will bring along some blankets, baskets and wraps, and by all means feel free to bring along a change or two of clothes and some toys or props!
A two-hour newborn package starts at $299 (including your high resolution images on a disc!), and you can get more information at the below link!

Family Photographs: With a NewBorn Photo Session!
Location: Heritage Park
Date: 24th February 2017
They always say never work with children and animals, but quite frankly neither bothers me in the slightest, especially when the children are as awesome and well behaved as Gyorgyi’s four kids! I was in Heritage Park to capture some family photographs, and I knew with a welcome as warm as that, it was going to be a great family portrait session!
I headed to their beautiful house in Heritage Park early one warm morning and was greeted by three beaming and cheeky smiles! I grabbed some photos of the kids on the stairs first – an impromptu game of ‘Peekaboo’ raised a few smiles and laughs; even from Mum and dad!
Gyorgyi and Roman’s newborn son joined us for a few shots – what a well behaved little boy he is! And so easy to photograph! Newborn photography shoots are usually punctuated by tears but we didn’t have any at all!
He slept the whole time, and even allowed Mum to change his clothes and get some nudey shots! He wasn’t overly keen on the baskets (Gyorgyi had brought some of her own – it’s always nice to have some new props to photograph!) so we let him chill on the blankets instead!
Roman had to work that day so we worked quickly and got some great family photographs. The kids were especially well behaved and keen to have their photo taken and they didn’t even tire or get bored as we progressed through the morning!
I love close up shots – capturing the details on a newborn photo shoot – and can this little dude grip on to Mum’s hand!
In general the more people there are in a photo the more challenging it becomes! Blinking becomes more prevalent of course, but these guys rocked!
We grabbed some photos on the stairs, the couch and then headed outside to a fantastic mango tree.
Hi Andy, thanks for the photos, they look very good, I already heave done a bunch of printouts.
But altogether thank you for your service, you jumped even with such a short notice. Gyorgyi
Newborn Photography: Burpengary Baby Photos
Date: 5th July 2016
Location: At Home in Burpengary
Maybe it’s because I’m a Dad that I love doing newborn photography so much! Or maybe it’s just because squishy newborn babies are just so cute and much fun to photograph!
Melissa and Zane emailed me a few weeks ago asking if I was free to photograph their beautiful new arrival – and just how beautiful is she!
And she was so well behaved too! She didn’t mind having a stranger taking baby photos, and even slept most of the time! Melissa did very well and made my job a lot easier well by having the room nice and warm and she had given her beautiful girl a good feed before I got there!
How incredibly beautiful does she look with the make-up brush and Mum’s pearls?!
And this must be the bravest thing I have ever seen! Melissa even brought out her beautiful silk wedding dress for some shots! Happily it remained unharmed!
Melissa and Zane got married a year ago so their wedding rings were brought out for a few photos! What an incredible selection of photographs they will have from this last twelve months: wedding photos and newborn photos! I know I’m biased but I really can’t emphasise the importance of capturing these milestones – having a family portrait photography session once a year really does allow you to look back in years to come and remember more clearly what everyone looked like and how everyone’s changed!
