A Little About Me

Babies are the purest and most precious bundles of joy. Absolutely nothing compares to the moment when they first enter this world. Capturing their first 15 to 20 days on camera is priceless and is such a privilege to be able to do so. It’s such a joy to share this experience with parents who want to hold onto these precious moments forever.

I’m a Melbourne-based photographer residing and working in Caroline Springs. I’m also a very proud mother of four beautiful children who I love and adore, two girls and two boys. I’ve always captured special moments in their lives, which is how my love and passion for photography came about. My focus over the last eight years has been on capturing beautiful baby photos. I love the pureness of simple, clean photos and creating beautiful, customized and elaborate setups to create unique images that can be cherished forever. These moments of a baby’s first few days of life are irreplaceable. These are the moments you will treasure for years to come.

The safety of your little one is my highest priority. Some photos aren’t what they seem and require multiple shots to be taken that are then merged in Photoshop afterwards to achieve the desired result.
Countless hours are spent each year on professional development, ensuring your baby is being handled, posed and styled safely and creatively to ensure all of my families are safe at all times, I’m registered &  fully vaccinated which are both kept up to date each year. I have a background in dental nursing which provides me with the necessary knowledge in hygiene and keeping up with making sure the studio has a full changeover and safe hours between shoots to ensure all the families who visit the studio are in a safe and clean environment.

I get asked a lot when should I book my maternity and newborn session?

 I’m often booked month in advance, so I do recommend if you are looking at booking a session you get in early, booking while you are pregnant is best, most families booked during their second trimester.

I pride myself on giving a unique experience to the families that choose to book with me from the beginning to the end. I walk you through the process every step of the way, making the process stress-free & an enjoyable experience. A lot of the families have left beautiful testimonials Taken from either Google reviews, Facebook reviews, Instagram or phone messages, and email messages which outline many positive factors of the process when you come on this journey with me.

My ambition is to continue working in this area of my passion; to embrace the love I have for newborns by capturing their innocence and purity through photography. All parents can appreciate the amazing gift babies are to us,  what a perfect way to capture your baby in its first few days of life!
