Melbourne Newborn & Family Photography

Capturing precious moments of your family’s life and transforming them into eternal memories.

Hi! I'm Lauren.

Your Melbourne-based newborn, children and family photographer!

Our little ones are only little for so long. Their bodies will grow, their personalities will change, and the way they love will expand. My photography is all about capturing those split-second moments that can last as eternal memories. Let me capture your growing family before the years get away from you. Through beautiful portraiture and intimate family sessions, I will create artwork of memories that will last a lifetime and for future generations.

Nestled in the picturesque hinterland of Hurstbridge, just 20 minutes from the M80 Ring Road, you will feel instantly relaxed amongst the gum trees and rustic setting of my home studio. Or if you prefer, an on-location shoot at your favourite outdoor spot.

With a photography session tailored to suit you and your family, send me a message and find out how we can create some memories together!

Newborn Photography

Creating beautiful newborn photographs is quite a skill and requires lots of patience! Every session is different and led by your baby. 

Family Photography

Family photoshoots are a candid, light-hearted style of photography. They are a mix of ‘play and posed’ photography designed capture your unique and growing brood as you celebrate family life together. In a relaxed and fun setting we will create raw and authentic family memories that you will never tire of looking at.

“Lauren did such a great job with our photos. At the end of a very hot day with our two young children she managed to make them laugh and get some great shots for our family to treasure. We now have some beautiful outdoor family shots that people often comment on. Can’t wait to get some more photos as the kids grow!”
