Maternity photos are best taken from 32-36 weeks. This session can be at an outdoor location, my studio or your home. I can recommend the location, or you might have a special place in mind. Perhaps you’ve got your heart set on having the photos taken at home or in your backyard. Wherever it be, we will make beautiful photos together.
The opportunity to capture new life and to celebrate such a momentous occasion in your family’s life is an amazing thing. Newborns are best photographed between 6-14 days old in order to attain those sleeping, curled up shots. These sessions are never rushed and allow for comforting and feeding. Newborn sessions take place in my beautiful home studio in the eastern melbourne suburb of Mitcham. To help to create timeless images, I like to keep props to a minimum.
I recommended that your newborn session be booked during your pregnancy to secure your place, as I can book out in the busy seasons.
I aim to photograph people as naturally as possible. You just get to be with your loved ones, with a little bit of direction from me. The focus isn’t on getting traditional portraits, it is on your relationship, your connection, how you interact. Of course there will also be some “everyone smiling looking at the camera” photographs, because everyone needs some of those, too.
Family sessions are a lot of fun and I like to shoot these on location as I find it to be child friendly and gives everyone a chance to relax and play. You might have a special location in mind, like the beach or a beautiful garden, or I have some favourite spots that I can recommend.
