An unseasonably warm Autumn afternoon greeted us as we ventured out into the gorgeous surrounds of the Chinese Gardens at Nurragingy Reserve. With Mariel showing off her perfect baby bump, we took a stroll through the grounds looking for the sublime golden light streaming through the trees.

Their 2 fur babies joined in for a bit of fun (after all, fur babies are family too) and showed off their excitement at becoming big brother and sister. Mariel’s beautiful maternity gown perfectly matched the glorious Autumn tones in the leaves. Such a delightful way to celebrate the anticipation of new life!

I was thrilled to discover that this lovely family actually live in the same suburb as me, which made our session that little bit easier! Amal wore one of our stunning maternity gowns which are offered to clients for their photography sessions.

We headed out to my favourite grassy field which was just starting to turn green after recent rain and enjoyed a balmy afternoon in the glorious golden sunset. I cannot wait to meet their newborn in a few short months!

The biggest compliment that you can receive as a professional photographer is having another photographer book you for their own photography session! Milena and her hubby were expecting their third child and so we decided to head to one of the beautiful jewels of the South Coast for our beach session. Milena looked absolutely radiant in this gorgeous MIA gown from Nest Maternity. With the incredible October sunset behind us, Milena and her little family enjoyed snuggles, belly rubs and frolicking in the sand.

Since our session, they have welcomed a beautiful baby girl into their family. Thanks so much for coming out to play, I had a magical evening with the 4 and a half of you! xx

I met this adorable Canadian pair at the PBC Expo in May when they stopped by my stall for a chat. Catching up with them again for their maternity session felt like catching up with old friends. We arrived at Audley in the Royal National Park and hugged, I marvelled at just how much her perfect bump had grown and we strolled around the park, seeking out the perfect pockets of afternoon sun. We laughed and chatted about all the exciting things they looked forward to doing as parents, how thrilled they were that their parents were coming to visit from Canada, and we leisurely walked around the beach near their home as the sun dipped below the horizon, blessing us with the most spectacular sunset colours to wrap up our session! I’m so excited to meet their new little man this week as we do their newborn session! Congratulations Nathan & Heidi!!

Maternity Photographer in Sydney

In Lillian’s questionnaire, I asked her to define motherhood in just 3 words. She chose Enjoyable, Validating and Defining. These 3 words summed up her maternity session perfectly! She emerged from the car this radiant pregnant goddess, a true vision of beauty, strength, patience, captivating and graceful  – I guarantee I didn’t look anywhere near this level of glamorous in my 3rd trimester! She seemed to enjoy each and every aspect of pregnancy, despite it not exactly being a smooth journey. What a wonderful afternoon spent in the golden glow of this sun drenched field! Congratulations Craig & Lillian on the addition of your little princess to your family!

Kellie and I attended high school together, so when she rang and asked if I’d be available to do a maternity session for them, I didn’t hesitate in saying YES! Kris, Kellie and their smiley little munchkin Chloe came out to enjoy an early morning along the banks of the Hacking River at Audley. Awaiting the arrival of their newest addition, Kellie was absolutely radiant and glowing with anticipation and joy. Such a strong connection and so much excitement for this new chapter in their lives.
