Studio: Bumps, Babes & More

The most transformative and poignant time in our lives, when we journey from being a couple to being a family, or we watch our family grow, our perspective and hearts expand beyond adequate words. It’s in reality a brief season in our lives, one with too many true cliché’s about the fleeting nature of its passing.


In December 2021 we took a leap of faith & purchased a 5acre property – our dream is to share this space with our parents in their golden years & we all happily share our little slice of eden.

I’ve since launched my all new custom photography studio located on my 5acre property in Oakford conveniently located just under 5 minutes from the Thomas Rd Fwy Exit South of the River. 

Studio sessions are all natural light sessions, working with minimal props, avoiding “phasing trends” and instead creating clean, timeless true to life coloured imagery – no orange filters here!

Typically these light and airy portrait sessions include white on white & other light neutral tones and focus heavily on connection capture between subjects or all the details that make this time & your little one so precious.

Studio format options include:



Baby: Sitter / Cake Smash / Milestone

Kids Portraits

Mum / Dad & Me 

Mini Family 

Pet Sessions

Business Branding


During newborn sessions I include a mixture of lifestyle & womb like posing to ensure no details are missed.

* All newborn sessions include some parent shots, sibling shots where applicable + baby portraiture.

Wondering when to book?

Session availability is strictly limited for maternity & newborn sessions so the best time to book your session is while still pregnant. I book a volume limit per month & tend to book out up to several months in advance (especially over spring & summer). Early in your second trimester is an ideal time to secure your session spot and avoid missing out, I will however do my best to accommodate last minute bookings if I have capacity so if your baby has already been born do still get in touch so we can chat about options. 

Studio Newborn Sessions yield best results when held within the first two weeks from baby’s birth (think sleepy & nude womb like poses) however, it is NEVER too late to capture your little one & I frequently shoot babies who are older than this – so ask me for more info about sessions for older babies. 

Studio Sessions are generally held in the mornings or early afternoons Mondays – Fridays. 

You should allow 1-3 hours for your newborn session so we can work to baby’s pace. 

Newborn session scheduling

Once your booking form & deposit is received, your due date and session “spot” is reserved. However unless you are booked for a c-section/induction your exact baby’s arrival date cannot be predicted (they are unpredictable little things & tend to work to their own plans) so your final session date & time will be definitively scheduled after baby is born at a time convenient to both parties. I ask my clients to notify me within 24 hours of baby’s birth, from there a day & time is scheduled for your session. 

All studio sessions are held Mondays – Fridays (with the exception of Public Holidays) and any sessions that include younger aged siblings are held earlier in the morning to work with nap times and while children are “freshest’.

More about Maternity sessions

Maternity Sessions are ideally scheduled between the 27 – 34 week period of your pregnancy as this is when I find expecting Mums are generally feeling their best. 

These sessions are all about capturing the unique beauty of growing a new human and the emerging bonds between mum + dad to be and any older siblings. These sessions can be done in your home (during the day), outdoors on location (sunset/sunrise) or in the studio (during the day) and are held Mondays – Fridays.
