It is always extra special when I get to meet and photograph expecting clients and then follow them through to document the arrival of their little person.
Krissy and Adam love spending time at the beach, so we decided to head down to the cliffs of Mount Martha for their maternity shoot and were blessed with a perfect Melbourne night.
Then a month and a bit later, it was time to document the story of welcoming baby Dallas into their world. He is a gorgeous, placid little man who clearly has inherited his parents love for the water too.
Elroy -their photogenic Golden Retriever, also stole the show in many of the photos. We have our own one too, so I have an extra soft spot for this breed:)
It was a drive into the city to photograph this gorgeous button and her family for a newborn session at their home in Port Melbourne.
Tracey and Joel welcomed Evie into the world on May 11th. Placid she remained the entire duration of the shoot and we got to see lots of those beautiful huge possum eyes. I'm often amazed at how well new parents adapt to having their little person at home. When I stepped into the Sahayam apartment it was as though Evie had always been there.
It was a little while into the session that I came across another little lady of the house, who sat very eloquently on top of her Mum and Dad's bed, not even approaching for a sniff - fur baby Chloe would have to be the most well behaved dog I have ever come across. Tracey spoke about how she would go into the office with her to work every day - even attending meetings!
The photo shoot involved lots of snuggles and kisses...
And my favourite part... bath time!
Thank you Tracey and Joel for inviting me into your home and trusting me to capture these precious moments for you. I loved every single minute of it!
It was a drive across the Westgate and off to the suburb of Seddon for an...
In home newborn lifestyle session in Melbourne's West.
I photographed this little man and his very lovely parents Josie and Luke and their rescue dog Sadie. I spent the morning into the early afternoon capturing 6 week old Flynn's little personality. He was quite the camera fan, watching and studying my every move.
I got to photograph snuggles and those adoring looks from loved up, doting Mum and Dad...
...Some very sweet puppy love. Sadie was very much in love with Flynn too!
Those feeding moments (note those beautiful stare bear eyes, studying my every move).
And a newborn in home story wouldn't be complete without a bubba bath:)

As time goes on, my role as a photographer becomes more defined. I began my passion for photography, loving all of it! The posed and unposed. Lifestyle, Documentary, Portrait, Fine Art, Marco, Landscape - you name it I love it. However the importance of finding my place in the photography world comes from peeling back the layers of who I am as person and bringing those aspects out through my art.
My role as a Mother is forefront the driving force behind what I do. My children are the reason I see the world as I do. They are my muse and daily inspiration. Motherhood has taught me to find complete solace in the raw, imperfect, messiness and craziness of life. Which is why 'in home' sessions seem like the perfect fit for my business.
And to launch this new element to our business I had the perfect models to showcase exactly what it is all about...
Ella and Billy welcome home their beautiful baby boy Bobby.
'In home' newborn sessions are for those wanting to capture life exactly how it is when your baby first enters your world. It's about photographing that little love bubble that you find yourself in. Doting, adoring parents admiring every tiny detail of their new bub. Mum and baby learning the art of feeding. The details of the space you have created just for them and the overwhelming joy and love you feel for your new family.
Until May the 7th I'm offering a..
