ABOUT – MELBOURNE NEWBORN FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER
!!!!WOW! How lucky am I?
I am so grateful to have spent the last 21 years as a Neonatal Nurse. I hold a Bachelor of Nursing and a Graduate Diploma in Neonatal Nursing. Looking after premature and seriously ill babies has been such an enormous part of my life. There have been heartaches, and triumphs and I have seen more courage and bravery from babies and families than most. I am very blessed to have looked after so many incredible families for this time and feel honoured to have done so.
I am so grateful to now have 2 gorgeous girls of my own. We’ve added baby Mollie as a sister to Harper in 2016, and our family of FOUR is complete. I am very lucky.
I am so grateful to now be a professional newborn family photographer, having huge success in 2015 winning 10 awards from the Australian Institute of Professional Photography in both Victoria and Australia. 2016 has continued that success with 3 more awards at a state level. 2017 has so far landed 2 more, with one of them, the all elusive – GOLD award which I’m very proud.
Having a baby truly is a blessing and a celebration of life and love,
and now as a mum myself, I love nothing more than being able to capture what I know is a very precious time.
The baby you have spent so much time wondering about, dreaming of and longing to meet has finally arrived and it’s such a time of joy, yet often clouded by eagerness, doubt, excitement, daunt and sleeply wonderment. It goes by so quickly, and before you know it, they are eating, crawling and walking. Time moves fast. Too fast.
This is one of the great reasons to invest in professional newborn photography, where I capture those very precious moments that are gone in the blink of an eye for you to treasure for years to come.
Newborn babies are so precious, and photographing them in a safe, and beautfiul way is really what professional newborn photography is all about. Anyone can take a picture, but please be rest assured, that my experience as a long term neonatal nurse and now a newborn photographer has taught me the many key skills to ensure you have images that will capture your heart for art in a truly safe environment.
I take the utmost care with your newborn, offer assistance and guidance on newborn care if you need and work tirelessly to ensure I capture the very essence of your baby in a beautiful and meaningful way, that will become treasured momentos of this very special time.
I also offer maternity, cake smash and family sessions as well. This allows me to really get to know you and your family, and I love being a part of it.
Please enquire if you are looking for some beautiful photography to capture your family at any stage. I’d be thrilled to meet you!
