Studio Photography - Maternity, Newborn and Older Babies
You've been waiting and anticipating your little one's arrival for 9 long months now, and then they are finally handed to you. You are flooded with emotion and look on in awe at their little features as you remember every little kick and nudge they gave you just a few weeks prior. During that first month, your baby will go through so many transformations and it is so important to document their little details before they are changed forever!
Our natural light studio located in South West Sydney's Ingleburn is minimalist and bright, creating a calming and comfortable space for you and your family. We have a range of stunning maternity gowns for clients to use during their sessions, and soft neutral fabrics to compliment your newborn. I focus on the natural beauty of your newborn, documenting all of their little features. Parents and siblings are encouraged to get in the photo's with their newborn and are not charged extra for this. My photographic approach is relaxed and natural, providing a timeless style which will compliment any interior without looking dated.
I shoot from a parents perspective, lovingly telling your family's story in a way that will take you back to that exact moment, preserving the emotion and connection you shared all those years ago. With a small window of time when they are still in that sleepy, still uncurling newborn stage, so it's important to understand that there is such an enormous difference between that 5-12 day old stage and a baby that is 3 months old. Every newborn baby is an absolute miracle and they are photographed as an individual, capturing their unique features and your fierce love for them.
As your little treasure grows and changes, we cater for the many milestones that occur within that first year. We offer Sitter Sessions which are aimed at babies between 6-9 months. These sessions capture your baby's growing personality and features as they become bigger and more mobile. Babies should be able to sit unassisted for Sitter Sessions, but not yet be crawling. We supply a range of props that your baby can sit in and hold onto for extra stability.
Our Cake Smash sessions are a fun and sensory focused way to celebrate your little one's First Birthday! Babies can smell, touch and taste (usually for the first time) a delicious cake to celebrate that 12 month milestone. These Cake Smash sessions give you a variety of gorgeous images without distracting factors that draw the attention away from your little one. We provide a rustic cake stand or crate as well as a range of adorable outfits your baby can wear for their session, and we wrap up the whole messy experience with a warm bubble bath in our rustic tub!
All of my Studio Photography Sessions are scheduled from 10am on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Because I take only one booking per day, it is a good idea to book well ahead of time so as to avoid disappointment, as I can book out months in advance.
