In-Home Newborn & Family Lifestyle Photographer

Sydney in-home lifestyle photographer for maternity newborn and families

I adore all of the new chapters that families experience! The excitement and anticipation as you expect a new little family member. The arrival of a new baby and getting to know this new tiny human you have so lovingly created. The joy you experience as your children grow right before your eyes and encounter life's many milestones. I love to share all of these wonders with my clients as we document these incredible events.

My aim as your lifestyle photographer is to invite you to connect with each other on such a level that you forget I'm even there. I want you to have so much fun with your family that it doesn't feel the way you thought a photography session would. By focusing on your bond and connection within the comfort of your own home, I can ensure that you never feel staged or awkward.

As a lifestyle photographer, I love to capture the organic, raw essence of your lives, the important things you want to remember. Their tiny toes that won't fit in your hand forever, the uncontrollable belly laughs, the warm tender cuddles, toddlers jumping on your bed - the real, honest, unique beauty in your everyday.

Your session

In-Home photography sessions are ideal for newborns or families with toddlers who need to stick to a strict daytime routine. Sessions run for around 1-2 hours allowing plenty of time for fun and laughter, as well as quiet moments for snuggles. You then have the freedom of being able to stick to their set nap or meal times, and everyone is more comfortable in familiar surroundings. All of my IN-HOME LIFESTYLE sessions are scheduled from 10am on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.  Because I take a strictly limited number of bookings per month, it is a good idea to book well ahead of time so as to avoid disappointment, as my weekend availability can book out months in advance.
