My approach


Those sweet, slow intimate moments captured forever. My newborn sessions are relaxed, intimate and full of connection. As a newborn photographer, I understand the importance of preserving the memories of those first days with your new baby. That's why I take a natural, organic approach to my photography, focusing on capturing the beauty and simplicity of the newborn and the connection between the baby and the parents.


There's something truly magical about in home newborn sessions. These sessions revolve around capturing your life as it is in this very moment. Don't fret over the mess and clutter—I assure you, I won't even notice. Houses are meant to be lived in, not kept spotless. Through these images, I aim to transport you back to this cherished memory—the time when your hands were occupied but your heart was so full.


With my newborn photography, you will have beautiful and timeless images that will be cherished for a lifetime. These images will transport you back to those special moments and help you to relive the emotions of the first days with your new baby. I would be honored to be a part of preserving these memories for you and your family.

What to expect in your session

First off, if you’ve never had a photo or video session before - It’s going to be waaaay easier and more fun than you probably expect! I will direct you and make you feel comfortable. My photos are all about the little moments, less posed shots and more real moments of connection.

Location & Timing

Stay in the comfort of your home and have me come to you. My newborn sessions generally take around 1 hour but they do not have time limits, as we will be completely guided by your baby and your families needs. There will be time for feeds, nappy changes and snuggles throughout the session.


You can choose from either an in-home session (within 40km of Traralgon) or an outdoor shoot

For newborn sessions I recommend a morning sessions before 11am, as babies still have some lovely sleep hormones running through their bodies and because of this they are generally more settled in the morning. If your after a newborn outdoor session we can also do 1 hour before sunset so we can take advantage of the golden light.



I have some recommendations on locations but if there is somewhere special to you let me know and we can discuss. Travel fees may apply.

What to wear

I recommend my clients keep it simple with something you feel yourself in. Nothing with big brand names, stripes, large patterns or bright primary colours.


It's best to keep neutral colours- think beige, taupe, gray, cream, brown, and white. or for a pop of colour pastels look nice or you can go earth tones. Have a look through my photos for some inspiration.


Feel free to chat to me if you have any questions.

Delivery

Generally my turnaround time for photos is about 2-4 weeks.

You will receive an email when your gallery is ready.


The high res images will be delivered online for you to download and you can order prints directly through your gallery. I highly recommend our printing company as the quality is outstanding, the colours are very true to life. You do also have the option to download your images and print through whoever you wish.



If you’d like help with printing, I’m more than happy to chat with you,

Vaccinations

I am fully vaccinated for Whooping Cough. If you would like me to wear a mask inside I don't mind at all.

Payment

A $200 session fee is required to lock in your session. After your session and once you have seen your gallery you will select your package.

I do also accept payment plans so that you can pay off in smaller instalments if you wish.

How do I book & what is the process?


If you are interested in making a booking, kindly accept the quote and pay the $200 session fee. If baby is already here we can organise a date or once your baby arrives please notify me, and we can discuss and finalise a shoot time. If you're after the squishy sleepy newborn photos I recommend for the photos to be scheduled in no later then 2 weeks after birth. I am highly flexible and accommodating, offering availability on weekends, early mornings, and after hours.
