I love to photograph all stages of life, for me, it’s all about creating memories. From that growing bump to tiny toes, and chasing toddlers it’s all about the joy.

Booking confirmation

The session fee is due at the time of your booking to secure a session time. The session fee confirms your booking date in my diary and also for the time taken and my skills as a professional photographer. No digital files or printed photographs are included with the session, with the exception of the combined pregnancy and newborn session fee. Once you have decided you would like to go ahead with the booking I will send an invoice with the session fee payments and confirmation. This can easily be paid online or you can send a direct debit transfer to my account.

Newborn Session $150

Creating beautiful newborn photographs is quite a skill and requires lots of patience! Working with newborns is a privilege, it’s wonderful to create not only beautiful images but photographs that are reflective of a piece of art. Although it’s hectic getting out of the house with a newborn, I promise you it will be well worth it.

PREGNANCY & NEWBORN combined booking $200

Booking a pregnancy photoshoot with your newborn session is a fantastic way to celebrate not only your growing bump but then also the final arrival of your baby. My aim is to make your pregnancy session one that leaves you feeling beautiful as a woman and proud of your body growing your precious baby. Ideally having your hair styled and basic makeup done would be great for the photoshoot.  I have a select few maternity dresses that you are welcome to use.

The photoshoot is best between 34-36 weeks’ gestation and will take approximately 30-45 minutes.  I can photograph you either outdoors in a natural setting or in the Watsonia studio.

When your little bundle of joy arrives, it will be a simple process of securing your newborn session in my diary when the baby is ideally 7-14 days old.

When you book your pregnancy and newborn session together, you will receive a complimentary 8×12″ mounted fine art print valued at $145

Sitter/ 1st Birthday Session $100

Photographing a newborn is a wonderful way to start documenting your baby’s life, but it shouldn’t stop there!  Coming back for your child’s one-year-old session is an important milestone too.  Sitter sessions are best taken when your baby is confidently sitting up but not yet walking.  Celebrate your baby’s milestone first birthday with a special photoshoot to mark the event!

Studio Portrait Session $100

Have you ever wondered what it’ll be like to have a true portraiture experience?  These sessions are uniquely styled and crafted with the end purpose of creating artwork.  Your images are meticulously selected and skillfully retouched to bring out the essence of who you are.  A fine art session includes a pre-consultation to discuss in details clothing options, background colours, and the overall look and feel that you wish to achieve in a portrait session.  A fine art session is for everyone at any age. You can also book a portrait session as a personal branding photoshoot for your work or business, again the overall style and feel will be discussed prior to your photoshoot.

Outdoor Family Session $150

Family sessions are held outdoors usually over the warmer months of the year. There are many beautiful locations in and around Melbourne from the rustic parklands of the Banyule/Nillumbik areas to Warrandyte, or the gorgeous Botanical Gardens in the city we are spoilt for choice.  Travel to locations within metropolitan Melbourne is included as part of session fees.  I love to photograph families in a candid, light-hearted style along with some snuggled in close shots of you all.  A mix of ‘play and posed’ is how I would describe what to expect from your family session!
