Baby Photography {Melbourne/ Sth East/ Malvern}

Are you pregnant and thinking of newborn portraits? Now is a great to book in. We’ve extended our ‘book a pregnancy photography session get a complimentary newborn photo session’ until further notice. So pay the one fee and get 2 sessions! Drop us an email through the contact page.


For the pregnancy / maternity photo session we usually suggest booking in early and capturing the photos at between 30 and 36 weeks.

We usually recommend you book your newborn photography shoot whilst you are still pregnant. We usually book you around a week after your due date so we know how many babies we have due and we are always flexible to move your date if baby arrives early or late.

Ideally we prefer to photograph our newborn babies at under 2 weeks old. However if you found us later or didnt feel up to it we can capture your newborn or baby at any stage.


This little miss was 9 weeks old when we photographed her portraits. To see more from this little cherubs session please visit the August album on our facebook page HERE




Family Portrait Photographer {Bentleigh Family Photographer}

You may remember our Mother’s Day competition run in conjunction with Family Deal Friday ? We gave away our biggest prize ever , worth $1225.

Our lucky winner was so completely ecstatic when I called her to tell her of her prize. This family had recently been through some stressful times and mum was so incredibly grateful to be the lucky winner.

We met at the studio in Murrumbeena to capture her family portraits. I’m very lucky to have wonderful parkland super close to the studio to use as a gorgeous backdrop for my clients photographs.

The day of the photo session was wet and cold, but thankfully the rain held off for the duration of our photoshoot and we were able to capture these beautiful images for herself and her family. To view more images from their session head on over and like our facebook page and visit the June 2013 client album.
