Baby Parker | Melbourne Newborn Photographer

Baby Parker. What can I say, he was deliciously adorable and an absolute sweetheart to photograph…but we cannot go past the love given to him by his sweet affectionate doting big Sister Matisse. Watching these two together just made my heart sing…and my over eager snap happy shutter finger go crazy! What an absolutely incredible gallery, so beautiful, so sweet, so much love. If ever there was a family perfect for the types of memories I long to create, moments I live to capture, it was these four.

I cannot thank the De Bono Family enough for choosing me as their Newborn Photographer, for allowing me into your world, trusting in me to give you the memories of your sweet Baby Boy Parker and little Miss Matisse to look back on for many years to come. May these images fill you with all the warmth and love that I have felt while working on them for you.

Melbourne Family Photographer | The Koulouriotis Family

Oh what a beautiful family to have the privilege or photographing. I am so so lucky to have the most amazing job in the world and always so humbled when families choose me to update their family photographs.

It was Autumn, I was eager to get amongst the gorgeous colours of this season, so when Danielle of Oly & Fox Babywear booked her photoshoot for her family, I suggested we hit the road for Mt Macedon and play amongst the falling leaves!

As we were drawing nearer to the Winter months, the day we met was a relatively chilly Autumn afternoon, there was no sunshine temping to come out to warm us up, but it wasn’t raining and in all honesty, these days in Melbourne, that’s all one can really hope for right?!

The minute I arrived, I was greeted with the most adorable cheeky smiles from both Oly and Gigi! What completely adorable little girls Danielle and Chris are raising. The smiles did not stop the entire time I was photographing this family. We played amongst the drying Autumn leaves, walked hand in hand, chasing me down the road. When in Mt Macedon I have a couple of favourite places I like to visit with families, so once we had made full use of the drying leaves on the side of this little lane, we hit the road and hunted down the sunshine.

The girls were so much fun to run around with, such love and cheekiness, Gigi simply did not stop smiling and giving me cheeky little side glances. Oly took quite the liking to my camera and was eager to explore and see exactly what it did and how. So like most of my photoshoots with little people, we finished up with Oly behind the camera taking a photo or two…and by two I mean she found the button and went to town filling up the remainder of my memory card! Lucky we live in the digital age hey?! 😉

The drive home after this session was a long one! I was so eager to upload and look through the images I took, to look back at the love shared, I couldn’t wait to share with Danielle and Chris and their entire family.

Thank you Danielle for introducing your family to me, for choosing me to photograph you all together, for the joy.

Baby Billy | Melbourne Newborn Photographer

How adorable is little Billy!! Quite the frowning little man, but the more they frown, the more I fall in love with them, so of course, I completely adore this little man and could just photograph him everyday without growing tired ❤

At just 5 weeks old, Billy came into my newborn studio very alert and ready for his close up. His Mum and Dad, Briana and Andrew were just lovely and a delight to spend the morning with. My favourite part of a newborn session is getting to know the family.

Thank you Briana and Andrew for choosing me as your newborn photographer, for letting me in on your world for a morning of laughter and story telling. Billy is the most precious little man, please bring him back to the studio soon!

Melbourne Maternity Photographer | Charlotte and Bronson

There’s nothing more exciting than knowing some of your most favourite people in the whole entire world are going to have a baby!

Charlotte, my cousin, my sister, my family, married Bronson last year and now, a little under a year later, they are about to welcome their first child into this world. The luckiest baby in the world to have these two as parents, surrounded by an incredible extended family…if I do say so myself!

So, we found out about this baby many months ago, and I wouldn’t be the maternity and newborn photographer that I am if my mind didn’t go straight to planning a date for this session. I knew I would have my work cut out for me, Bronson is a Fireman and from the outside seems to be always at work and Charlotte is exactly the same. So I started planning as soon as I could, offering as many dates as humanly possible. We settled for this past weekend, the Sunday after their baby shower. I hit the road to Rosebud on the Mornington Peninsula and spent the most wonderful weekend with them. I somehow managed to convince them to head to the beach with me twice! Not just once as sunset after all the celebrating had finished, but then again the next morning to watch the sunrise…I won;t lie, none of us were overly thrilled to be up at 5.30am on a Sunday morning, but I knew deep dow that it was going to be glorious!

And oh my was I right! It wasn’t as cold as we had expected, although I am not entirely convinced that it was warm enough for bare feet…Bronson and I both agreed Charlotte was completely mad. The sky was filled with so many clouds that I was worried we wouldn’t see any sunrise at all, but with or without the sunshine, the light on this quiet Sunday morning was the most beautiful soft light I had ever seen and I am now unfortunately, completely addicted to that time of day!

We laughed and joked and pulled silly faces, I secretly filmed them having a cuddle, we did ridiculous selfies to prove to the world that were out there, the sound of the water was peaceful and calming and by 7am, we were all done and ready to crawl back into bed…of course with a house full, and two little people back at home, getting back into bed was entirely OFF the cards, but we were set for a day of family time and more memories to be made.

Growing up with Charlotte were some of the very best years of my life, to have family so close is so special and everything I long for. Charlotte is so lucky to have found Bronson, he is so lucky to have found Charlotte and together they are both so so lucky to have me… 😉 Photographing their wedding was some of the most fun I have ever had behind the camera, photographing their maternity sessions was just as fun! I cannot wait to welcome this little person into our family and of course, to bring them into my studio for their newborn session when he or she finally arrives!

Charlie and Bronson, you guys are awesome, hilarious and the coolest people I know! Congratulations once again on this completely ridiculously grown up time in your lives!

Baby Ollie | Melbourne Newborn Photographer

Baby Ollie and his Mum Jess and Dad Jason spent the morning with me in the studio last week and I have to say…it was the perfect way to finish off August. Ollie at just 2 weeks on the dot was so completely and utterly adorable! So full of smiles and personality, just like his Dad. Who also gave me just as many silly faces as Ollie did… 😉

It’s been a while since I met a newborn who smiled SO much! I missed photographing them the first few times, we wasn’t giving me the usual signs that a new baby gives, but then I was patient, and stubborn and refused to walk away and put the camera down until he gave me a smile…my back still hurts from the patiently waiting, but it was SO worth it!

Thank you Jess and Jason for choosing me as your newborn photographer. Thank you for spending your day with me in the studio and giving me the privilege of meeting you all and getting to know you better. PLEASE bring Ollie back to see me again soon!!

Melbourne Maternity Photographer | Nikki and Dave

Nikki & Dave are expecting a baby! And soon! Nikki was already 37 weeks when she got in touch with me so we worked together to find the perfect date to squeeze in a session for her and Dave before their little person made an appearance. Between Dave’s work schedule, their moving house, my 3 little people and a full schedule, by some miracle we actually found one date to work with and just days after our initial conversation, I met up with them in the park in Essendon North, just a few streets down from their home.

For two people so busy at this time in their lives, they were so relaxed and laid back, a breathe of fresh air after driving in peak hour traffic to meet them. The sun, which I always look for when outside, was a no show, but it was a clam, quiet and unseasonably warm Tuesday afternoon and Nikki was looking incredible for someone just about due to pop with her first child. These two, Mum and Dad to be, were a gorgeous couple who I thoroughly enjoyed photographing.

I get so much excitement out of a maternity photoshoot, the antiscipation, the unknown, the excitement of who their little person will be. Plus this session had a little bit more excitement for me as I was experimenting with a new lens and totally loving it…I am sure Dave thought I was completely nuts the whole time as my giddy joy came out every time something pretty showed up on the back of my camera…I promise Dave, I am definitely completely nuts, but entirely normal all at the same time 😉

Nikki and Dave, thank you for choosing me for your Maternity Photoshoot, it was an absolute delight working with you and your growing baby bump. I cannot wait to see you again very soon in the studio when your new baby arrives.

Melbourne Family Photographer | Papworth Family

Well, the weather gods were really on our side this afternoon! I was jumping for joy all day long at the sight of the sunshine and the warmth of the Spring breeze.

The Papworth Family were so much fun to photograph along the banks of the Yarra River in Eltham, biggest Brother Baxter was the master stick finder and every time I turned around he had found a new bigger and better one than the last. Miss Ivy, the classic middle child, cheekiest of cheeky smiles, sweetest little voice and a big fan of the squeaky bumble bee attached to my camera. Tiny little Stella only had eyes for Mum, I certainly had my work cut out for me with this little one, but I had plenty of tricks up my sleeve to find her happy…and when I did, of the sweetness in her eyes ❤

Donna and Rob are the loveliest people you will ever meet, always with a smile, so much love for their gorgeous children, who were keen for adventure! Whilst I always promise adventure, I am a little bit of a tease and make them wait so long, but you really wouldn’t know it with these three because their miles continued, their excitement stayed with us and everything I asked of them, they happily obliged.

Walking along the river, it was beautiful and warm, you wouldn’t be silly to even mistaken the day for a Summer one, not Spring, the perfect late afternoon to photograph a family. I caught a glimpse of Baxter’s future in modelling, with quite the entertaining walk through the park, miss Ivy followed along in true little sister style and mimicked Baxter perfectly.

Thank you so much Donna, Rob, Baxter, Ivy and Stella for spending your afternoon with me, for choosing me as your family photographer. I haven’t had so much fun behind the camera in a while and I can honestly say, I would photograph you all again in a heart beat!
