Melbourne family and newborn photography, capturing the wonderfully imperfect of life.

Because it goes by too damn fast.
Except that last hour before the kids' bedtime. That's endless.

DAY IN THE LIFE

Welcome. I'm DelanIe.

I've always had an obsession with photos. When I had my youngest daughter, I organised three photo shoots in six months. Yep.

At the time I couldn’t quite place why they didn’t feel entirely right to me. I mean - did I receive beautiful photos of my little one? Yep…but they didn’t quite feel like ‘us’. I knew I wanted something else…something that showed our own particular ‘us-ness’, so I set out to create the type of photography I’d wanted for myself.

I’ve had a long-time love of documenting the wonderfully ordinary - as well as the extraordinary details of life. I blogged, scrapbooked and photographed for many years before my children arrived, capturing my life, loves and travels but the urge to make photography my full-time gig came after a little metaphorical push from my husband whilst I was on maternity leave. To make a creative life MY life: mostly bliss!

And it’s a privilege to do what I do. To observe and capture love is a pretty brilliant job to have.

I believe...

As mothers, we often leave ourselves out of photographs with our family because we’re the ones taking the picture. When you’re actually in the picture with your family —and especially with your children — you’re offered a glimpse into how your children see you, too.

I believe...

That your family doesn't need to look like mine to be wonderful. #loveislove

I believe...

There is no better time for photos than now. In the years to come your children will be looking at the smiles and love in these captured moments. They don't see those imperfections on which we judge ourselves.

THE MOMENT MY PLANE TAKES OFF AND I'M ON HOLIDAY

I love all these photos so much!! We’re absolutely stoked, they’re even better than we had imagined. Thank you so much!!

I just looked through our gallery and am in tears, seriously. 

Amongst the trees in Hurstbridge

In December 2018 (with a 5 month old baby!) my family moved to our dream home in Hurstbridge, to the north-east of Melbourne. We'd been looking for years already, but as we pulled up at the 1970s timber and mud brick buildings, designed by Alistair Knox, we fell in love. On 10 acres of 

bush, the property certainly keeps my husband busy but provides a gorgeous natural and private option for your photo session. My studio and (perpetually messy) office is housed in a separate building full of light, wood beams and the perfect amount of character.

You were beyond patient with our uncooperative toddler, and still managed to capture the most beautiful, natural moments of our family just being together. You made us feel so relaxed and comfortable, and this really shows in the photos.

I am so happy we chose you to take photos of our family!
