Family Photography

My photography is all about capturing the personality of your children and the connection within your family.

I work on location; in your favourite park, at the beach, in a country field or at your home. It might be a place that holds a special meaning for you and your family. If you can’t think of a place that will suit you, I am happy to suggest a range of locations throughout Melbourne and Victoria that work well for family photo sessions.

 I adore natural light and I try to work with it as much I as can. The best time of day is the early morning or late afternoon when the light is soft and beautiful, but choose a time depending on your children’s daily routine.

Generally family sessions will last for about 1.5 – 2 hours. We will play, run around, explore, laugh and have fun doing things you enjoy as a family. My aim is to capture you and your loved ones in a natural and relaxed way, along with a few lightly posed portraits.

 

Newborn & Maternity Photography

Photographing newborn babies within the first few days of being born is so special and truly magical. 

Newborns are best when photographed within the first 2 weeks of life, preferably between 6 and 10 days old. After they pass the 14-day mark they become less sleepy and much harder to pose.

The best time to book your session is during your pregnancy. We will schedule a tentative booking based on your due date. This date can be rescheduled if your baby arrives earlier or later then expected. Once your baby is born, please contact me as soon as you can and we will arrange a suitable time and day for your session. Newborn sessions are normally done in the morning on weekdays. Newborn sessions take place at your home where it is more comfortable for the baby and the parents. 

Newborn shoots last up 4 hours to allow plenty of time for settling and feeding the baby. I do a combination of posed newborn images and lifestyle portraits with the parents and siblings. I don’t use a lot of props; my main focus is to capture the beauty of your baby.

 Maternity photo sessions are best taken around 34-38 weeks. Maternity sessions are booked with a newborn session only.

 

Wedding Photography

As your wedding photographer, I know how important your wedding is and how many hours go into planning your perfect day. When the day arrives it will be full of nerves, love, laughter and happy tears.

I’ll capture your day candidly as it happens but I’ll also be there to give you some direction if you need it. I want to document all the important details and emotions that make your wedding day one of the most special in your lives. I will create photographs that are unique to you, that reflect your personalities and capture the essence of your day.

I take the time to get to know my clients so I can provide the best possible service and give you the photographs you deserve. If you like what I do please get in touch and we will arrange time for coffee, I would love to hear more about you.
