Sara Castilho Photography



Newborn photos are all about welcoming your little bundle of joy into your tribe whether it’s baby number 1 or 5. This precious and sweet newborn phase will pass before you know it, and it’s so special to capture the unique bonds developing between baby and family.

As a mother myself I really love to share in the joy, anticipation and love that radiates from newborn photography. Capturing all the little details from the cuddles and snuggles to their tiny little fingers and toes. If you’re searching for your next newborn photographer Perth… Get in touch.

When to schedule your Newborn session?

Newborn sessions can be scheduled anytime from birth until your baby is 3 months old. If you decide to go for early newborn photos (around the two week mark) these photos will capture mostly sleepy baby photos, great for snuggles and close up shots. For slightly bigger newborns, I love shooting around the five week mark (this is one of my favourite stages), babies are a little chubbier and cuter and we should still get lots of sleepy and some awake shots too. Another great phase is newborns around the 10 week mark, baby will be even chubbier and more alert usually, so more open eyes and connection shots which I also love.

Every newborn is different so we will let the baby lead and capture all the beauty of the day.

Photographer Profile - Sara Castilho

Hi, my name is Sara, where do I start….

I’m the mother to two gorgeous, cheeky and wild little boys. I believe they are the cutest, and cuddliest beings on the planet. I feel so lucky to be a witness to these beautiful souls, coming into the world and seeing their light shine and grow.

I grew up in the cosmopolitan London UK, and now live in sunny and laid-back Perth with my beautiful husband and little family of four. I’m a traveller, dreamer, star gazer, wonderer, lover of all people small and large. I love music, especially Motown and Disco and love dancing around the living room with my kids, watching in amazement at their crazy moves (which they didn’t learn from me…I promise haha)

I’m a natural light, lifestyle photographer, I shoot love and all the magical in-betweens…. From bumps to babies, connection, expression, laughter, cuddles and snuggles. I love magical golden light and beautiful wild locations, capturing memories of your little love story in pictures.

I’m so thankful to my beautiful clients who choose me to capture their story and are able to open up in a way that shines through in the images and I hope I can help them to be themselves, relaxed, happy and let the real moments happen.

I feel so lucky to be able to do something that I absolutely love so much, that fills my soul up and makes me feel like there is no where I’d rather be. Not only do I get to meet beautiful and interesting people but I’m lucky enough to share in some of the most special moments in their lives…. I so look forward to meeting you and hearing your story. Thank you xx
