I love what I do. When capturing a story, a little piece of my heart is left with each family I meet. The greek word 'meraki' sums it up perfecty - to do something with soul, creativity, or love; when you leave a piece of yourself in your work.
I love the sweetness and simplicity of a tiny baby all curled up like they haven't even left the womb, with sleepy smiles and flakey skin, content to lie on their mummy's chest, or be held in their daddy's arms...
Newborn photography has increased in popularity in the last few years, and there is a wide variety of creativity within this genre, from studios offering posed sessions, to a more natural or lifestyle documentation within clients' homes. I find my style of photography falls somewhere in the middle, combining parts of the two. I absolutely love the authentic connection of an in-home session, yet also love the beautiful simplicity of a naturally posed session. Using soft window light and a neutral background, I gently guide a baby into a pose that is comfortable for them!
The newborn session takes place when your baby is 6-12 days old in the comfort of your home. I am a natural light photographer, and shooting the session in your home means firstly, that you don't have to bring your new little one out anywhere, and also that I can capture your family in your own environment, preserving memories of this beautiful time.
The session usually takes between 2-3 hours, as we do stop for feeds or cuddles if necessary.
I want you to walk away from your session with all your images, so the newborn session is all inclusive. Meaning the package includes your session, a digital gallery with 50+ edited high resolution images, as well as a 5x7in birth announcement which you can download straight to your computer.
There is beauty found in the joy you experience waiting to meet this little person who stirs inside you, who has awoken a love you never knew existed.
The Bump-To-Bub package includes an on location maternity session between 32 and 36 weeks gestation, and a newborn session when your baby is 6-12 days old. Both sessions come with a digital gallery with 50+ edited high resolution images, as well as a 5x7in birth announcement (newborn session) which you can download straight to your computer.
Documenting the birth of a baby is so incredible. Filled with both strength and raw emotion, I feel honoured to capture that unforgettable and truly beautiful first meeting of your new little one.
The Birth Story package it $1200. This includes me being on-call from 37 weeks, the documentaion of your birth, and a digital gallery with all your edited high resolution images.
I take a limited number of Birth Story sessions, so please contact me for an information package or to organise a time where we can chat about your story.
Photographs are one of the few things in life that increase in value as time goes by. Each family has their own story to tell and these are moments we can look back on and pass on to generations to come.
I want you to walk away from your session with all your images, so the family session includes a one hour session, and a digital gallery with 50+ edited high resolution images which you can download straight to your computer.
Extended family sessions are $500, with group access to your digital gallery.
High quality lustre prints can be ordered through the client gallery.
