About Laine of LA Photography:

Laine Allen of LA Photography is a multi International award winning photographer and also a fully Accredited photographer with the Australian Institute of Photography.


LA Photography is located in Southport on the Gold Coast.

I have been a professional photographer of 13 years and I have received Newborn posing training by a globally renown photographer.

I have one goal: to provide you with beautiful family portraits of the highest standard that you will be able to share amongst your family for Generations to come.

The quality of products I provide will allow you to do just this and should be considered as Heirlooms.


Why I am offering these sessions for just $65

The best way for me to show new clients of what is involved in a session is to show them through imagery. 

I can't show mum's what various poses are unless I have these in my galleries of work. 

These sessions are therefore to add new poses to show clients in my body of work. 

*** By participating in these sessions it is a requirement to agree to my using the images in my website and social media. 


Definition of a Newborn

A "Newborn" session in photography is defined and limited to those babies who are 10 days or younger. Premi's are an exception who can be photographed as a Newborn up to the age of 3 weeks. 

Babies over 10 days may not be photographed in "classic Newborn" poses.


These classic Newborn poses can be achieved because the physiology of babies 10 days and younger is much softer and therefore more easily able to be moved.


Certain poses are also not only uncomfortable but unsafe for babies over 10 days.


When booking sessions for babies with LA Photography, discussing ages and the types of imagery you would like to achieve is important.


This will allow me to determine safe posing most suited to your child.



In these sessions you will receive:

First we will have a short online video Consultation on Skype (which is free to download).

The Consultation allows you to "meet" me face to face online before the session and ask any questions. 


In the Consultation I will show you images of the poses I will be planning to achieve.

Your session will be up to but not necessarily 3 hours long. 

*** The focus will not be on achieving as many images as possible so please do not be expecting anymore than a few from the session. 

The focus is instead on quality which is why up to 3 hours will be allowed.

* You will receive 2 5 x 7" prints in an 8 x 10" mat (a value of $310 each.

* You will receive 2 digital files of the same images sized to 5 x 7" where you are permitted to re- print as many times as you like and;

* You will receive 2 digital images of the same images sized for social media

* You will receive a Facebook banner with the 2 images which you may use for social media. 

* Both the digital images and Facebook banner will have my watermark on them which must be displayed. 

At the end of the session we have another online face to face Consultation where you will be able to select the images you wish.

How to prepare for these sessions

(You can read this information closer to the session).


There are a few things I find parents worry about which I would like to immediately ease your minds about.

All babies cry.

All new babies excrete and need to be fed regularly.  

These are the reasons we allow for and why we dedicate 3 hours to the session so your baby has the comfort and peace to simply be themselves.

Mum's, if required you will also have space to breast feed and feel relaxed whilst doing so. 

In these sessions I love involving parents when posing their Newborn. I find parents enjoy it and it means your Newborn is in close proximity to you.

These sessions are available for a starting time between 10am and 2pm and best done close to your Newborn's napping time.
