Holding a Certificate IV in photography and graduating from my Diploma in Photo Imaging with distinctions, I am am a professional in the art of baby photography,  and creating stunning pieces of art.

With years of experience in my field, and many of them spent refining my skills by attending newborn posing and  handling courses, I have studied how to calm and settle  babies in order to get them into those cute little poses.

Learning all aspects of safety when posing newborns to ensure they are comfortable and safe at all times, so my clients know they have placed their trust in someone who is professional and well educated in the field they are employing.

Having opened my newborn photography business 6 years ago, I focus on creating elegant and professional newborn baby photography, maternity portraits, and specialised children portraits for my clients. We offer a great selection of affordable packages with gorgeous products and digitals. My studio is a warm and inviting space beaming with natural light. I have created a calm and soothing environment to capture your newborn portraits. Filled with colourful, carefully selected blankets, stretch and mohair wraps and outfits for those cute curled up shots. I have a large range of girls dresses, soft knitted rompers and bonnets, delicate headbands/tiebacks for the cute little girl shots and a collection of vintage and antique bowls and baskets for my clients to choose from to create the portraits you will cherish and look at for years to come. Sessions can take up to 4 hours for a newborn and 2 hours for our specialised children portraits. During our newborn sessions we allow plenty of time for cuddles and feeding. I keep the studio at a cosy 28C to help keep your baby warm and comfortable, you might feel a little warm during the session, so please pack layered clothing. I pride myself on ensuring that sessions with me are relaxed and focused on you and your newborn baby, though keeping in mind that every baby is different. Some are not so sleepy on the day and I never force a baby into any pose that they don’t feel comfortable in, or that i don’t feel they are slipping into easily. My main priority is your newborns safety and comfort. For more information on our newborn baby photography, please email us through the enquiry form. If you already love what you see and want to book, please book through our online Booking Form. We look forward to hearing from you and creating some beautiful memories for your family.

When choosing who captures your newborn baby photography, please ensure you always check the following:
  • Consistency – your photographer should have an established portfolio of work for you to look through and a certain style
  • Experience in the handling of newborn babies & children
  • Practices “safe posing” of newborns
  • Has insurance – in particular public liability insurance.
  • Is fully immunised, with the recent outbreak of Whooping Cough this is most important and is a question you should always ask your photographer before booking.
