Newborns are my absolute favourite subject to photograph. Capturing the essence of new life, the innocence of a newborn, and their first special moments arriving into this world is such a blessing.

The best time to book your newborn session is while you are still pregnant during your 5th or 6th month or anytime earlier. I can only book limited newborn sessions per month and my schedule fills up fast, so booking your session in early will ensure I’m available for you once your baby arrives. I limit the amount of sessions per month to ensure the highest quality of service to you. If you have already had your baby and are considering a newborn session please contact me as soon as possible as I may still be able to schedule you in.

The best time to photograph newborns is between 7-16 days old, whilst they are still super sleepy and can be easily positioned into those curly poses that everyone just adores. After this age, babies tend to have a startle reflex and positioning them into poses wakes them. Baby acne and rashes on their delicate skin may also start to flare.

I have a wide variety of props for your newborn session that I have sourced from all over the world. I supply everything from hats, headbands, wraps, blankets, backdrops, furs, baskets and buckets etc. so there is no need to purchase anything for the session.

Once you have booked your newborn session a detailed email and welcome guide will be sent to you. This is filled with information on what to expect, what to bring and how to get you best prepared for your session.

Sessions typically last between 3-4 hours depending on how baby is on the day. These sessions are not rushed as we allow time for feeding, settling, posing and changing sets, etc.



Celebrate your pregnancy by capturing your beautiful growing belly, glowing skin and that excitement of a new beginning, a new life!

Our mini maternity sessions are only offered to clients also booking a newborn session with our studio. Sessions are held in our studio and outside, and are scheduled between 32-36 weeks. My goal is to make you feel and look beautiful while always keeping your comfort level in mind. I have photographed expecting mothers fully clothed, in beautiful gowns, partially naked and fully nude. The style of session is totally up to you. I have a collection of custom made gowns and outfits that can also be used during your session.

Sessions typically last 30-45 minutes.



Milestone sessions are a fun way to capture your babies first year, as we all know that first year goes by so quickly. Those sweet gummy smiles, sitting up by themselves and standing are all important milestones. I strive to achieve a fun, relaxed and enjoyable experience with your child for their session.

We hold milestone sessions in our studio for babies aged 6-12 months of age or once your baby is sitting up with no assistance.

Sessions typically last between 30-45 minutes.



Family sessions are usually held outside on location in a rustic outdoor setting. These sessions are best done late in the afternoon when the light is soft, golden and shinning at its best.

Capturing images of you and your partner together or with your children is a pleasure of mine, being a wife and a mum myself i know how precious these memories are.

I try and capture natural smiles, innocense and purity of your family. I try and make our session fun and memorable for everyone in a relaxed environment.

Sessions typically last 60-90 minutes.
