Welcome to

I’ve created a list of Christmas activities for kids and families that is perfect for an Australian Summer Christmas. Not a hot chocolate, snowman or ice-skating mention in sight! Christmas is a time of magic and wonder. Of traditions, delicious food and coming together to celebrate. And it can be a time of long to […]

Australian Christmas Activities

For a week in May, from Monday the 11th through Sunday 17th, I documented our days. With COVID-19 restrictions just starting to lift, Mike was working different start and finish times from normal, I was working entirely from home, the girls had recently resumed spending days with their grandparents for childcare but there were no […]

Our Day // November 14, 2019

Introducing baby Martha, at one day old. This was one alert little baby girl! I couldn’t believe the looks and expressions she was giving, after only 23 hours breathing air. Her parents, both UK expats, were head over heels in love with their little Martha and had booked a Fresh 48 session to share these […]

Baby Martha // Mercy Hospital

Introducing baby Isla, at two days old. Baby Isla’s big sister may have just stolen the show during this in-hospital session at Mercy Hospital in Heidelberg. I don’t think I have ever photographed a two-year-old who was so cooperative and obliging! And she was so happy to snuggle with her brand new little sister. The […]

Baby Isla // Mercy Hospital

Introducing baby Millie, at 1 day old. This beautiful Fresh 48 newborn session was held at Melbourne’s Mercy Hospital for Women in Heidelberg. It wasn’t my first time meeting this lovely family, as I’ve photographed both a Fresh 48 and in-home newborn sessions for big brother Leo when he just a baby. I always feel […]

Baby Millie // Mercy Hospital

At a time where traditional newborn photo sessions are problematic, if not down right impossible, I am reminded of this baby photo session with the adorable Martha. It is, without a doubt, one of my favourite photo galleries. (Disclaimer: I have quite a few favourites! How can I play favourites with their sweet baby faces?!)  […]

12 Week Old Baby Martha

1st birthday cake smash photo sessions. I’m sure we’ve all seen photos of them. Who doesn’t like a cute baby with cake smooshed all over its face?! This here though, a session filled with loving and laughing and playing together, this is what makes my heart happy.  This is the adorable toddler little miss Emi […]

Emi’s 1st Birthday Photo Session

I have recently added a new question to the questionnaire I send out before newborn photography sessions. I love photographing touch – it’s my love language – and that can be especially wonderful skin on skin. In additional to seeing some gorgeous baby skin, how do you and your partner feel about showing some skin? […]

Baby Kit

I think Autumn has to be my favourite Melbourne season; a time of scarves and boots, wood fires, crisp mornings and the gorgeous colour of autumn leaves. There is something wonderful about a pile of crackly autumn leaves that brings out the playfulness in all of us. I challenge you to try walking past a collection […]
