Session details

 

I offer maternity, newborn, baby and family sessions. Sessions can be held anywhere in the Melbourne Metropolitan region* and generally take place on a weekday, though I do have a limited number of weekend slots available.

 
 
 
 
 

Maternity

The fact that you're growing a little person inside you is just amazing.  And bumps are just beautiful. So why not mark this milestone with a photo shoot that will celebrate you and your growing tummy?

Maternity sessions take place at your home or in another location of your choice. They last 2-3 hours and can include a couple of outfit changes, if you wish. My aim, is to make you feel completely at ease so that I can capture a range of natural photos that you will love.

Your maternity session is best scheduled between your 32nd and 36th week, while your bump is looking beautiful but you're not yet not too uncomfortable (or huge!). Your partner and/or children are welcome to join us on this shoot.

Complete details are available in the Session Guide you will receive once you have booked your session. 


 
 
 
 

Newborns

The newborn phase is fleeting. Immortalise those tiny little fingers and toes and perfect little lips with a series of photos that will keep the memory of this incredible time of your life fresh forever. 

Newborn sessions take place at your home (though you can choose an outdoor location, weather permitting). Newborn sessions last 3-4 hours and include plenty of time for feeding, settling and shushing.

During our time together, I will capture a range of photos: simple and tasteful posed images of your newborn as well as relaxed and natural lifestyle images of you and your family bonding with your new baby.

Newborn sessions are best scheduled within 10 days of your baby being born. At this age, they tend to spend most of their time sleeping (so it's much easier to get sweet photos of them) and they probably haven't developed pimples or peeling skin, yet.

Complete details are available in the Session Guide you will receive once you have booked your session. 


 
 
 
 

Babies

Oh, I love those chubby fingers, beautiful smiles and the delicious fat rolls on their wrists. Your baby will be a toddler before you know it, so why not capture some photos of them before they grow up?

Sessions can take place in your home or anywhere that's special to you and generally last between 2-3 hours.

The sessions are simple and relaxed and include lots of silly faces to get your baby to smile! I aim to capture a mix of simple and natural portraits of your baby as well as a series of lifestyle photos of you and your family interacting with baby.

Children / families

Blink and you'll miss it. Your little ones really do grow up too quickly! Freeze a moment in time with photos that tell the story of who you and your family are.

Sessions with children are fun and relaxed. They generally last between 2-3 hours and can take place in your home and/or in a location that's special to you (a local park, the beach, the zoo). Or a mix of both.

To make sure your photos reflect who your family are, I recommend that we arrange an activity that you and your children like to do (like cooking breakfast, going to the market or going to the park). I aim to take a mix of lifestyle photos that tell your story as well as some more formal (but certainly not stuffy!) portraits.
