POINT COOK NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER
So what can you expect from your newborn photography experience? There are welcome packs and tips and tricks from me, sure! But what about on the day?
How do people *actually* travel and look so dang relaxed all the time?
It’s because I do everything I can to make sure the day is as stress-free as possibe.
The idea of leaving the house by a certain time with a 7 day old baby is enough to give anyone stress ulcers, so instead? You get a two hour window in which to arrive, and your departure time is based around your little one’s feeding schedule (a relaxed mama makes for a much smoother session). And once you get here you can expect to be greeted with an understanding smile, and probably a warm hug (because I’m a hugger). A cup of tea or coffee (or water) and then you’ll need to hand over your baby to me ASAP because I’m going to want ALL the cuddles! I’ve worked with nearly 100 little babies, and I never get sick of those cuddles!
There’s plenty of time to capture all the little things that make your babies unique, like Sasha’s little inquisitive stare, her facial expressions, the way she stretches and her teeny little details. Every session is focused on capturing your sweet little ones just as they are, and I have a large collection of simple wraps and blankets to keep your images natural, and timeless.
While I do my thing, you get to sit back and relax, have a chat with me (and I do regularly get dads napping on the couch in here). And you can expect that you will genuinely have a good time. My clients usually end their session by saying “it felt like we were hanging out with an old friend!” or “that was wonderful... we were so worried, but that was totally painless.”
This isn’t just a job for me guys, it’s a calling, a passion. Preserving this season of life for you, and for your little ones. I would give anything to have photos of me and my parents like this when I was a baby - I’m not in for the session, I’m in it for the chance to tell part of your story, to catch a glimpse of your love and bottle it in photos that you will all treasure forever.
Being trusted over and over by clients to capture their growing family is a dream come true for me. Here are some of my favourites from Layla’s session, and a little throwback to her older brother’s newborn session with me 2+ years ago.

Ever wondered what the newborn session experience is like? Here’s a little glimpse into the newborn photography session experience with me.
These little sweethearts were some of the first babies to be photographed at my new studio and HOLY HECK I’m in luuuurve with photographing twins (and my studio).
Ever wondered what happens when babies don’t want to sleep in the studio? I just roll with the flow, because we can still capture some beautiful moments together ♥
Another feisty, independent little one who knew exactly what she didn’t want to do (sleep). But it meant we got to capture some beautiful moments between Joni and her mama, just gazing at each other (and they melt my heart).
Selecting clothing for your first postpartum photoshoot may seem daunting. Your first instinct may be “oh, no, the baby only, not me.” But I know what I’m doing (that’s why you hired me, right?). Here are some tips to help you feel comfortable, and look great in front of the camera.

Woohoo! I finally have my own studio, and I love it so much. This week I’m giving you an exclusive tour (as well as a few before and afters)!
