Lukas | Brisbane newborn photographer

This morning I photographed beautiful baby Lukas. At 24 days new, he was a tiny bit older than my usual newborn sessions, but it made absolutely no difference at all! Such a smiler already, Lukas has the sweetest little personality and such beautiful features.

Newborn photos are best done while your baby is still small and sleepy, usually under 3 weeks of age. It is essential to book while still pregnant. If you'd like any more information on my newborn sessions, please contact me and I'll be in touch.







Evie | Brisbane newborn photographer

Meet Evie, 15 days new. Such a gorgeous baby, she was so alert and happy for her newborn photo session on the weekend! I just could not get over that ginger mohawk - apparently she looks just like her eldest sister as a newborn, which is so special. She already fits right in to her family, and as baby number four, this is exactly what her parents need! They certainly have their hands full, and their hearts full of love.

Mum Courtney has her own YouTube channel which shows all aspects of honest mum life, blended families, and now lots of newborn goodness!! Courtney filmed some of our session and has compiled the footage into a vlog on her YouTube channel - please go and check it out! You get to see me, and some behind-the-scenes of a very typical newborn session with siblings. You'd never guess the amount of chaos (and bribery!) that happens in the background of these perfect images!

Poppy | Brisbane maternity photographer

Pregnancy can be rough. Feeling sick, unable to eat certain foods, stretch marks, swollen feet, heartburn. So much changes with your body - and although it's for the best reason in the world - it doesn't mean that it's easy to deal with. And then there is the pressure to have that "glow" - which doesn't necessarily come naturally to us all!

Sometimes, the last thing you want is photos of yourself in this moment. And I totally get it. I was lucky enough that with all three of my pregnancies, I felt pretty good. But catch me at the wrong angle with a camera, and I was horrified at the changed woman I saw.

Lucky for my clients, I know all the best angles and lighting tricks to make you look amazing. With very little effort on your part! Just like Poppy below. At almost 37 weeks, she feels less than amazing and wasn't totally confident in the idea of having her photos taken (even though it was all her idea to book!). But look how fantastic they turned out - definitely worth it all!

Maternity sessions are best booked for between approx. 32-36 weeks, depending on your health and the size of your belly. I also have a special offer for both maternity and newborn sessions booked together - contact me to find out more!





C Family | Brisbane family photographer

Yesterday I had the pleasure of photographing this gorgeous family once again - I've seen this family grow through pregnancy, newborn, and family photos over the past couple of years and it's always so lovely to catch up time!

Two-year-old Rohan has grown up into such a little man - and SO full of energy! He certainly knows how to be the boss (as most toddlers do!), and was loving commanding everybody to run and jump around, barely staying still long enough for a photo. I need some of that toddler energy - I was absolutely exhausted at the end of our photo session!

Amelia | Brisbane newborn photographer

Welcoming a second baby to the family is such a different experience compared to the first, especially when there are only a couple of years (or less!) between them. Instead of rest, newborn nap times are spent playing/feeding/entertaining/cleaning up after the older child. Instead of spending sometimes hour-long feeding sessions alone with your new baby in a dark, quiet nursery recliner, you're often keeping a toddler out of trouble while also making their lunch one-handed while also trying to keep your newborn latched. Second babies are left to cry that little bit longer while you safely get the toddler out of their evening bath and dried so their bedtime is not too late. You really appreciate the miracle of all children napping simultaneously and absolutely make no sudden movements - or even dare to sneeze - in an effort to make that miracle last as long as possible.

But having said all of that, it is all absolutely worth it. It's the most amazing experience to watch your first-born meet and grow love for their new baby sibling. Suddenly, your tiny first-born seems like a giant compared to your newborn. They seem to grow up so much faster in those first few months after bringing home a newborn. And the bond between siblings is just the most wonderful thing to see grow.

Today I had baby Amelia in the studio for her newborn photos. While we started the session with her wide awake (and HUNGRY!), being cuddled in the family photos soon put her to sleep and she was so calm and relaxed for the remainder of the session. Big sister Abigail is just in love with her new baby, and I'm sure they will grow to be the best of friends.

James | Brisbane baby photographer

James was just the CUTEST little model this morning! At first he was hesitant, and we had quite a bit of  very sad sobbing when I made eye contact with him. But he soon warmed up and couldn't stop flashing that beautiful, huge smile! James was very chatty and showed off all his clever tricks for me in the studio. I just adore this age - such sweet personality and so much interaction!
