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. I'm here to document the toys across the floor and the piles of laundry on the couch—the essence of life. 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 there may be times where you might not notice I am there.

Location & Timing

Stay in the comfort of your home and have me come to you.


You can choose from either an in-home session or an outdoor shoot

Indoor sessions are usually morning before 11am

If outdoors generally my sessions start 1 hour before sunset so we can take advantage of the golden light or early morning before 11am.


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

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. Think dresses, skirts or knits if that is something that is in the wardrobe. Have a look through my photos for some inspiration.


I do have a dress in my client wardrobe that is available to mother's for maternity, family or newborn sessions. You can also hire beautiful dresses from mamarentals.com.au, everythinglace.com.au or rented style in Traralgon do have dresses for hire. Feel free to chat to me if you have any questions.

Props

I have a basket, some blankets and some cute knits for baby to wear. I can bring these along to your session. Just please let me know if you would like me to bring them to your photoshoot.

Delivery

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

You will receive a text message 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 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

$100 deposit is required to lock in your session with final payment to be made 1 day before your session.

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 reach out to me via email. I will promptly send you an invoice for a $100 deposit. 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. Your convenience is my priority, and I am committed to working around your schedule.

Photos you can 'feel'

As a newborn photographer and film maker, one of the most rewarding aspects of my job is being able to capture the intimate and fleeting moments of a newborn's early days. Recently, I had the privilege of filming a family's first days with their new baby and the results were truly breathtaking.


The film showcases the new parents Jessie and Mitch washing their baby Lyon in the sink, and features moments of them holding their newborn in their home. These are the types of moments that are so precious and fleeting, and it is an honor to be able to preserve them for the family to cherish for years to come.




As you watch the film, you can see the way the parents' faces light up as they hold their baby and you can hear the little squeaks and sounds Lyon makes. These are the moments that words cannot adequately describe and photographs alone cannot fully capture.


While photographs are great for capturing specific moments, film adds a new dimension to the story and creates a more complete and immersive experience. The film captures the overall atmosphere and emotion of the day, and provides a window into the baby's personality and how they interact with their parents and surroundings.


In addition to photographs, adding a Newborn Family film to your newborn photography package is a great way to preserve the memories of those first days with your new baby. The emotional power of film makes it a cherished keepsake for years to come. I highly recommend considering adding film to your newborn photography package, and I would love to be a part of preserving those special moments for your family
