Newborn Babies

Honest, natural imagery documenting the very start of our little one's lives.

The images that I create for clients are natural, timeless and a lifelong reminder of the pure love and connection that we have for our children in those first moments.  When your children reach the point of having their own children, that’s when the newborn photos come out again and we reminice and laugh with each other about how big Dad’s head was when he was born! Before we know it those one tiny little babies are walking, talking, feeling and thinking human beings. No one regrets getting photographs taken of their newborn but there are plenty of people out there who will tell you that they regret NOT getting any pictures at all! 


I currently offer In-Home Lifestyle Newborn Sessions.

In-home lifestyle sessions take place within the first 2 weeks of birth giving Mum some time to recover and for the new family unit to find their own rhythm. They are documentary style showing the family's new routine from snuggles with Mum and Dad, feeding, skin-to-skin, baby's nursery and all the precious little moments in-between. 


Sessions last approximately 1.5-2 hours and take place in the comfort of your own home.

Clients receive 60-80 images via an online gallery, which you are welcome to share with friends and family both locally and out-of-town.

Every client also receives USB containing all of their images and a set of 40 6x4 gift prints within 3-4 weeks of the session.

Clients may opt to receive a sneak peek of 2-3 images within 48 hours via my Facebook/Instagram pages and the rest of the gallery is available for viewing within 2 weeks of our session together.

My goal is for your little one's first photography experience to be as easy and relaxing as possible capturing all the little details and raw moments of your first days together as a family. Sessions are short and sweet and I travel to you because (let's face it) new parents are exhausted and I'd rather you spent as much time as possible bonding with your precious new arrival.
