Maternity and Newborn Lifestyle

Documenting this wonderful chapter in your families story of life is something I truly cherish. The smiles at a maternity session are pure, the excitement beaming from Mum and Dad to be (whether it's baby number 1 or 4) is incredibly beautiful and I'm grateful to be able to create photographs for you to treasure for a lifetime.

Once you're home and all settled in with your new little bundle of joy we'll organise your Newborn lifestyle session. I don't hurry you to schedule in throughout the first 14 days of your babies life as sessions aren't as highly posed as studio styled newborn sessions other photographers may offer. Everyone adjusts to their new life differently and not every bub is able to be home in their first 2 weeks of life. There's no need to rush our session until you are all adjusted to this new wonderful life in your home. In saying that, if you're ready to schedule in after a few days being home, then it is super sweet to photograph your baby so squishy, tiny and new.


My newborn lifestyle sessions are about capturing you all as a family, in your space and doing life with your precious new addition. It's about sitting on the couch together adoring the magic you've both created, standing in the nursery you've dreamed of for months holding your baby and nursing them back to sleep in your arms. It's personal, intimate and together we make it a calm, relaxing experience.

Newborn Lifestyle sessions can go for as little as an hour up to a few hours. Before we start it's best to feed your baby so they are calm and content. They may have a few more feeds and changes during our shoot. We just work with your little star on the day. Your home is our studio and we will use the natural light around your place to capture your family and this exciting chapter in your lives.
