Birth Photography

One of the most meaningful sessions Im honoured to be asked to photograph is a birth photography coverage. The images below are from a recent natural birth session, where the parents were surrounded by family, and during the birth by a circle of women doctors and nurses. A fast delivery once started, the room full of noise and energy. Was such a delight to be there to tell their story. Happy parents with their new little bundle of joy.

Fine art portraits : Sussanah

Immersion - Fine-art Water Photography

Every year I take on a personal project where I create artworks that have a deep meaning for me and that I feel will be a beneficial view to share in the world. This year for my personal work I am paying homage to the Pre-Raphaelite genre of master painters .
Expressing a serenity and sensuality through the female form. 
In deep meditative states a certain blissful awareness arises, where there is what’s referred to as a physical and mental pliancy experienced. My work is an expression of gratitude and reverence, and a calling for this state.

If you’re interested in a water photography session, please don’t hesitate to contact me today to discuss the details.

Fine art portrait session on location - Susannah

Ive photographed Susannah throughout her years of growing up. Its been wonderful to meet each year and celebrate all her achievements and capture her beautiful spirit.

Location portrait photography is wonderful for embracing lots of different looks and settings. I like to shoot down the beach, as on the Sunshine Coast, Australia we have amazingly private beaches that have that grassland meadow look , surf and white sands, and gentle reflective creeks. I always shoot in low light mostly at sunset to capture that flattering light, and golden hour.

If you’re interested in a portrait photography session to celebrate your life, please contact me today with any questions or to book and plan your wonderful session.

Maternity session for Jess and Dylan

Beautiful photography captured in my Mapleton home studio, on the Sunshine Coast, Australia.

Captured in beautiful natural light and studio lights, with high level professional skin editing, where the natural skin texture and tone is conveyed. Styling is taken care of, and you’re guided by me in expression and poses to capture your natural beauty and mannerisms.

My style is beauty editorial style, combined with a romantic bohemian naturalness, and classical glamour.

Partners are welcome and in couple shots, I aim to capture an intimacy and tender loving beauty.

If you’re thinking of booking a maternity session in 2019, please contact me to arrange your preferred session as early as you can, to avoid disappointment , as I can be booked up a couple of months in advance. Be sure to ask about my package deals for double and triple session bookings.

Zia's fineart session

Fine art children’s photography with Zia.

Zia is an incredibly talented and passionate dancer, taking on all life has to offer. I wanted to capture her vibrancy and beautiful connective gaze. As Zia is also interested in acting and modelling I was interested in capturing a portfolio for these areas of her creative life.

A fine art photography session working with creative individuals allows me to create imagery more dreamy and whimsical, triggering more emotive expressions in the client.

Using studio lighting, and the best equipment, and knowledge, allows me to capture incredibly detailed and honest imagery that are simply breathtaking and unlike any images ordinarily captured.

A fine art photography session is a memorable and heart nourishing time for the client, weather they are wanting to create an acting/modelling portfolio, or just wishing to explore there own creativity.

Please contact me with any questions to start planning your session today.

Little lucah

A little look at a session from my home studio in Mapleton. For some people the option of coming to my home studio makes things much easier. I have lots of space, my home is relaxed and holds lots of options for creating a very varied gallery for your portrait images.

I create a gallery of both natural and studio lit images. Spending a large amount of time capturing the minimal white solo images of your baby, and then as baby allows capturing some more poses and changes in looks.

In my sessions I try and create minimal imagery, whilst still capturing the whimsical and romantic when I can.

Shooting in my home studio, I am able to accomodate many family members, and can capture those studio shots, with high level edited images, and all the best equipment and knowlege a professional studio supplies, but in a setting that is more relaxed, which is often reflected in the serene expressions of my clients portraits.

All necessary blankets, wraps, bonnets, flowers and props are supplied. So all that is needed to bring for your session is your own clothing (although you are welcome to ask about studio wardrobe options if you want something a little glamorous), and nappies.

Im often booked up 2-3 months in advance, so if you’re thinking about booking in a newborn session, or taking advantage of my great package deals, which include 2 session booking package deal , and 3 sessions in 1 year package deal, please contact me asap.

Angel series

Fine Art Children's Photography : Angels

Beautiful images for my angel children series.

Fine Art photography for me is about expressing some universal emotions and notions of our time and especially depicting some quality and observed issue for our children.

Here I was exploring our children's vulnerabilities, their innocence, pressures, hopes and dreams, and their lightness.

I wanted to express how I feel children are angels to their parents, because they allow us to taste compassion and unconditional love, where we gladly sacrifice time, energy and resources for them, just so we know they are happy.

They stay for a time, then they grow up, teaching us they are not there to permanently activate this love in us but rather to show us that we can be loving and selfless, so we can continue to do it when they are no longer children, for the rest of the world.

Please contact me if interested in creating some magical images today.

maternity wardrobe

With every deluxe session with me you have access to my full maternity wardrobe. It makes your session super exciting, and you have a varied gallery of beautiful and special clothing to wear, (saving you from having to purchase a garment for a maternity shoot, that you would probably only wear a couple of times)

I send a link to a gallery where you can make a personal favourites list, that you share with me, as your photographer, so on the day of your shoot, you know there's items waiting for you, and more. 


For women wanting to capture some beautiful body images of their pregnant form, I offer nude or lingerie shots (lingerie not supplied), using fabrics and giving suggested styling options.

The Deluxe session can be in my home studio in Mapleton, or as a home visit mobile studio or lifestyle session, or on location.

I offer package deals for multiple bookings.

Please contact me to book your special session today

Newborn Layla in dusky pink

Little 6 day old Layla, slept soundly through her winter session. Happy to be snuggled and cozzy, on a heated posing pod.

I always try to give with the newborn sessions a special fine art portrait, designed to be a special image, excellent for printing large as a canvas or printed wall art piece. These are often composited in post production, so as to make the session alot easier for bub and parents. 

I used dusky pink and white colours to compliment her pale complexion, and dark hair. A sweet colour for her sweet nature, and oh so cute expressions.

Parent cuddles are so moving sometimes as the parents hold their precious new baby. So easy to get those contented sweet smiles from the heart, and wonderful to record how little and cherished the little ones are.

My newborn sessions are offered as a mobile studio service in your home or you can choose to use my home studio in Mapleton, on the hinterland of the Sunshine Coast. To learn more about the session please visit my newborn page.

You can also choose the easier option of capturing your newborn in a lifestyle manner, in which images are captured with your home and belongings in the background. Please see examples of my lifestyle sessions.

I also offer package deals for savings if wanting to book in multiple sessions, such as maternity/newborn/sitter. Please enquire if interested.

Im often booking up months in advance so please book in early for your newborn session, that way you can relax knowing your beautiful, exciting photography session will be all taken care of. 

lifestyle newborn session - home visit

In home visit, in a lifestyle fashion is simply you and your baby in your home. I shoot these images in a documentary shooting style, simply posed and guided, and simply edited. We arrange a time of day that is best suited for your family, and we record the various activities of your day in your home. Visiting the spaces of your home that you feel you'd love to be captured and remembered, as a precious time with your newborn baby. 

The lifestyle session is far more minimal than a portrait newborn session, in terms of being non-intrusive to your day or home. There are no props, or need to move furniture, posing is minimal, and it takes about 90 minutes. 

I'm very relaxed with how I record these images, and we simply talk quietly as you go about being with your baby.

Your little baby is captured in their own clothing, in their cot, unposed, showing their natural manerisms. 

Simple portraits are captured having those precious cuddles, and nursing.

Capturing all their tiny details, in a warm secure familiar space. Natural, beautiful images.

These moments of the first few weeks, where your baby is so tiny in your arms, where they sleep all the time, will change so quickly, where life will become so busy, this time of just being together in a nursing/ bonding phase is so precious, so wonderful to have images of forever.

I only take on a few clients per month, so to avoid disappointment contact me to book your newborn session as early as you can, to make sure you get the session you really want. 

Gabrielle's studio session

When  a client comes for a portrait session, I love to be able to grab a relaxed image of them in their everyday clothing, before all the styling and posing begins. Just a neutral friendly headshot, that captures their relaxed selves.

Beautiful lighting is one of the most important aspects to studio photography. I love this lighting that creates a soft beauty look. 

A dramatic gown, simple side lighting and a dark background gives a completely new and stunning look.

I love simple paired back styling and a subdued colour palette.

Minimalist, and classic, giving that timeless quality, where the individuals traits can stand out, and the images become poetic and lyrical.

Little Jupiter's bubble bath and cuddle time session

Sweet little Jupiter at 6 months old had the best bath time photography session. In my home studio, I use natural light and studio lights, capturing some whimsical softly lit images for bathtime, and some clear traditional studio images for classical portraits.

I style the session depending on the preferences of the parent, choosing and guiding in style the backdrops, clothes and props.

A little bit of bathtime makes for the best images, as your baby is contained and entertained. A wonderful way to capture their curiosity and gorgeous expressions.

After bath play time is incredibly fun, slipping around in the soap or snuggling in a blanket.

When your baby needs some cuddle time, or a feed, some beautiful images can be captured showing the special bond between parent and baby.

Some classic baby portraits can also be captured, showing their cute curiosity and their small adorable features.

It's a wonderful time to capture some beautiful portraits of your baby having those special cuddles. Having a studio portrait session, means you can show breastfeeding and skin to skin portraits in privacy and comfort.

If you're interested in a baby session for your precious little treasure, please contact me to arrange all your session details.

Immy and Kendall's fine art session

A special time for a Mummy and Me session is a gift to yourself and your child, that will be treasured and remembered for always. I wanted to create a magical session with Immy and Kendall, showing their sweet natures, and simple beauty. Alot of the props in this session come from Immy's collection of saved gems. I find alot of my clients have special little items that work in so well with my style, I love to use them in the shoot, as it becomes very personal.

Capturing your child's innocence and beauty.

Dressing up is a part of the fun of the session, the child is engaged because their imagination is stimulated. I love creating simple styles, where one or two items are used, and the portrait focuses on the simple elements, and the child's whimsical expressions, and cute little features.

Some stunning portraits showing the beautiful connection between mother and child is an absolute honor. When I take these images, I have in mind creating a portrait as a large print on the family wall, which stands out as special and timeless. 

I have a background in fashion and beauty photography, so Im always looking to take some beautiful portraits of the mum in the session. I think its a beautiful gift for the parent to be witnessed in a beautiful light, and is an invaluable lesson for the child to see their mother as beautiful and willing to be seen as so. 

I love to set up a styled session, taking inspiration from old master painters. A connection and referral to simpler times, where beautiful objects and artworks of still lifes were decadent and moody.

I love capturing a simple and understated portrait, where the child is natural, and doesnt have to put on a big cheesy grin. Capturing their neutral expressions, lets those subtle expressions and thoughts in the eyes emerge.

Contact me today to plan your next fine art children's session, and experience this special session for yourself.

Fine Art Children's Photography - Jess and Scarlet

A beautiful session, where the child gets to dress up and take time to let their imagination play, and feel special under the bright lights. 

I look for a neutral sweet expression, gently guiding their pose and expression to create an image that shows their innocence and their gentle spirits.
