Announce Your Baby with Style

Sugar Images offers unique Hospital lifestyle sessions that capture your baby’s announcement to the world with all of the skill of a professional newborn photographer and the convenience of coming to you before you’ve left the hospital.

All of our hospital lifestyle sessions include approx 1 hour of photography in your hospital room or in our allocated studio space at the hospital capturing those first moments including the option of baby’s first bath, breastfeeding session and meeting siblings! The choice is yours.

As well as offering your family priceless memories, our newborn photos regularly grace the pages of the Geelong Advertiser and the social media announcement sections – we’ll even submit your information to the newspaper on your behalf so that you can just enjoy the time with your bundle of joy, simply let us know if you would like your image taken when we come to visit your room.

Our team of talented photographers visit St John of God, Geelong every Monday and Thursday bringing our collection of natural and organic wraps, blankets and bonnets to style your baby ready for their first portrait.

As part of our commitment to your new family, we have established a relationship and lifestyle session at St John of God Geelong and ensure our entire team is up to date with Whooping cough boosters and Flu Vax along with following hospitals strict hand hygiene policies.

Your safety and comfort are our highest priority.

Katie is a passionate and amazing photographer. She handles each baby as if they were her own. She positions each baby with utmost care, while ensuring their safety and without compromising them in any way. I highly recommend her to any family, friends or clients who are looking for a newborn photographer.

Katie has done a brilliant job with our photo session and she was so professional in every aspect I expect of a baby photographer - she was so gentle, skilled and very careful handling our baby! It was amazing how my little boy was so settled through the photo session.

I highly recommend sugar images, from the moment I stepped into Katie’s studio she was friendly, warm and welcoming which made me feel very comfortable and safe. I had both a maternity and a newborn shoot for my son, our photographs are amazing and we couldn’t be happier with the whole experience from start to finish. Thanks sugar images!
