Baby Photography Sydney

Newborn babies are the cutest. We want to remember them from this age forever.

Parents try so hard to hold onto all of those memories. It’s the important, more minor details that matter the most.

To remember what their baby looked like when they were so young. Little snippets but special memories are often worn by the sands of time. So I decided to step in and help to keep those memories bound forever as part of your daily lives. Having a new baby is an extraordinary time for any parent, those tiny details, the little smiles, yawns, and the new bond between parents, siblings, and their latest addition to the family. Having a baby is not always just about happy faces. Sometimes, it can be of the many highs and lows, and I believe all of those are worth documenting and celebrating.

I love capturing the natural bond of you and your baby; no posing necessary, no force smiles. I believe your genuine emotion is the most pleasant thing in the world for you to look back to later on. I put a lot of emphasis on creating a pressure-free experience that you will enjoy; you will love and laugh with the most important people in your life. When we have finished our session, you do not only gain a unique experience but a bucket load of memories and photos documenting your little one and your family that you can keep forever. The little details of your new baby!

I would describe my style as natural, pure, and simple. I love white, light, natural colors, and textures.

For the newborn photoshoot, I have a lot of baby clothes, wraps, headbands for you to choose from. I believe the photoshoot is all about your baby, so tend to minimise the use of props and maintain focus on your baby’s beautiful, unique newborn features that will change so quickly.

I also enjoy capturing babies and families. The baby journey doesn’t stop after we do the newborn shoot. Every step is a new journey for you and your baby. I love to be able to photograph and celebrate every moment with you, baby’s 100 days, baby’s first sitting moment, baby’s first step, and the first time your baby tastes their a birthday cake! These are the moments you do not want to forget; being a photographer, as a photographer, these are my favourite precious moments to capture!

I photograph babies and families all over the Sydney Metro area. The main areas I cover are Western Sydney. The memories of our childhood are made up of the everyday moments that are happening at our home with our loved ones. The places we feel comfortable with, the people we love. Where everyone relaxes on a sofa, cuddling and laughing. That’s the memories we want to keep and tell.

If you and your family enjoy the outdoors, let’s go out and have an adventure in the open air. The beach, the local park, the bush. Do what you like and enjoy the day as a family! I love photographing children being themselves, playful, carefree in nature and in the city, climbing a tree; running into the water; being outside, always bonding as a family, we see the same tree, we smell the same flower. It also brings out the magic and wonder of childhood.

We describe our lives in stories. So I enjoy creating artworks to tell stories and stories within stories. Starting with the big picture, newborn to cake smashing and beyond, all the way down to the smaller stories, the cheeky smile as she sleeps with the cute, funny faces. The way he discovers cake and experiences the new tastes and sensations. To capture the fun as it unravels. Then to compile these tales together in a string of special events that encapsulates the story of your family.
