Newborn Photography Wollongong – Beautiful Newborn Sessions

I have so many portrait sessions to share with you all, I am sort of playing catch up at the moment as i have been so busy!

Today i had a Mum come into the studio to view her gallery and choose her prints. I knew this would be such a hard task as her images were just so amazing. It wasn’t even my baby and i had trouble helping her choose! She walked away with a beautiful order of frames and prints. This is why i love my job so much. I get to create such amazing portraits for families and i help display them so that they can enjoy them for a life-time. Why spend if you can’t enjoy it.


Our beautiful reveal sessions allows clients to view their printed portraits as they will receive them before ordering. This helps clients to see what portrait and product will fit their home, and their style. You purchase the photos you love!

I can’t wait for Mum and Dad to receive their beautiful digital files and products. What an amazing way to remember how little and adorable their baby once was.

Below is a few images from their gorgeous gallery. When i say a few,

what i really mean is i had a lot of trouble holding back and not sharing them all 🙂

Beautiful Sitter Session

Finished this beautiful sitter session gallery today. How absolutely adorable is little Aria.

Aria’s Mummy wasn’t sure what to dress her in for these portraits, but luckily we have a wardrobe full of beautiful outfits for our sitter and children’s portraits, so parents don’t need the worry of what to wear.

I photographed Aria as a newborn last year and it was such a pleasure to see her back in the studio again. Her gorgeous little personality shined through for the camera, as well as her cheeky little smile. I know Mum and Dad will tickled pink with these gorgeous milestone portraits.

To see how much your little baby has changed since a newborn is such an amazing thing. How they have grown into their own little personality, and are now this energetic, bubbly human is a gift to watch. We love to freeze these memories for our clients and turn them into beautiful portraits, that you can treasure and look back on for many, many years to come.

Did i mention again that this isn’t even half of what is in the entire gallery? Wowzers!

Beautiful Newborn Photography

I am so in love with this beautiful newborn photography session. The mix of gorgeous colours, tones and textures in the gallery are amazing! I haven’t yet handed this gallery over to Mum, but i couldn’t wait to share a little snippet from it.

On the day of the newborn session i asked Mum how she found me to do her newborn photos, her reply made my day “Oh i knew i wanted you to do my pics before my baby was even born!’ Mum had been following me on Facebook for years. So to know she still wanted me to capture this special moment years on was an amazing feeling. Not to mention she had an older daughter with the most beautiful blue eyes and gorgeous personality to throw in the mix too.

So i now introduce you too this beautiful little 5 day old boy and his gorgeous sister…. did i mention this was just a snippet? There is way more in this beautiful gallery!

Maternity Photography

Maternity photography, such a beautiful way to celebrate your pregnancy and the upcoming arrival of your newborn baby. Something i wish i had embraced all those many years ago, though it wasn’t that popular back then.

I thought i would write a blog to help those wanting to embark on the beautiful journey that is maternity photography sessions. There is a lot of planning in the background to ensure that these sessions run beautifully. I was never a big drawer at school, after school or ever really. I could barely draw a stick figure haha. But i have embraced my drawing skills, or lack there of, and started drawing up posing ideas, location ideas, studio set ups, gowns, colours and so on. This way i have everything planned out before my clients arrival which speeds things up on my end.

A few tips from me for any client booking in a maternity session with a professional photographer;

  • Allow 1-2 hours for a maternity shoot. Standard time is 1 ½ hours.
  • Two hours before your shoot don’t wear any tight fitting clothing that may leave marks on your skin. ie; bras, tight elsatic pants around your belly.
  • Moisturise (no shimmer or overly shiny cream)
  • Freshly paint fingers and toes with a neutral/complimentary nail polish or a french manicure/clear polish.
  • Apply a non- shimmer makeup. Matte is the best for photographing. Or book in to have your hair and makeup done professionally. We offer this service with award winning makeup artist Kat Quinn.
  • If you wear jewellery keep it to a minimum, you don’t want focus taken away from yourself and your belly.
  • Beige or white underwear and bra or a tube top is best as you will be in sheer, tight fitting material for some of your images and you don’t want undergarment lines or colouring to show in your images.
  • If you are bringing your own clothing, please keep it simple (ie pastels/ solid colours). Busy prints and large bold logos do not photograph well.
  • If you are including your partner/children in the session, dress them to compliment what you have chosen to wear.
  • Most importantly, relax and enjoy your maternity session, this will show in your images most of all.

I hope this little blog helps anyone wanting to get maternity portraits done. Embrace and love your bump, you won’t have the bump forever, but photographs you will have for a lifetime.


Warm regards,
