Welcome to

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.

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.

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? […]

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 […]

Autumn Leaves in South Morang // Melbourne Family Photographer

What to Wear for a Family Photo Session if you are Overly Curvaceous (Plus Size) That’s how I choose to describe myself, overly curvaceous, and man is it hard to find examples like me and my family when I look for inspiration before we have a family photo session. (Because yes, I’m getting in front […]

75+ Photo Gift Ideas

If you search for a beach maternity photographer you’ll probably come across a whole lot of photos with long flowing dresses waving in the breeze. That’s perfect if that’s the style of pregnancy photos you are looking for, but that’s not what I do. Natural, relaxed and real. Loving and laughing and appreciating this specific […]
