Baby William | Sydney Newborn Photographer | Elysium Photography

Being invited to capture multiple sessions for clients is the biggest compliment as a photographer. I first met these 2 when their first little person arrived in the world. Once their 2nd tiny human came along, they contacted me again to capture this next exciting chapter. Little William was 6 weeks old for his session, which is a fantastic age for newborns during lifestyle sessions. They are more alert and expressive, we get lots of smiles and eye contact, and their connection with parents is beautiful!

Newborn photography with a sibling is always an interesting experience, and little Harriet did not disappoint, completely stealing the show from her little brother! It was such a joy to see her again and marvel at how much she had grown since doing her newborn session almost 2 years prior. Jumping on the bed, playing games and delighting us all with her infectious laughter proved greatly entertaining!

I have always loved everything that the Camellia Gardens at Caringbah has to offer to us photographers. Ever winding path, every little pocket of greenery just hold this magical light and enchants every client I take there!

These 2 decided that they wanted something a bit different when their little guy arrived. Since they lived close to this incredible location, we decided to combine half an outdoor session with half in in-home session… and the results are amazing!

The weather was lovely and warm, making it comfortable for little Lenny. The soft morning glow added an enchanting element to their images. The sweet little newborn features of a 7 day old baby had me wanting to bottle his essence. Thankfully as a photographer, I have made time stand still and preserved those newborn characteristics to be treasured forever!


Baby Daniil | Sydney Newborn Photographer | Elysium Photography

I met sweet little Daniil and his amazing family recently for their in-home session. This little guy was so placid and relaxed surrounded by so much love! At 9 weeks of age, he was a little bigger than what most people would refer to as “newborn”, but to me they are still so tiny and new. This is such a wonderful age to document older newborns, as they are much more alert and expressive, giving parents lots of smiles and requiring much less settling. Daniil happily snuggled with his mamma and enjoyed some gorgeous little chats with his daddy! Such a blessing to be able to document such precious memories for my clients!


Baby Frank | Sydney Lifestyle Newborn Photographer | Elysium Photography

This is the third time I’ve been blessed with documenting this beautiful little family. I first met them when Bella turned one and they wanted to capture the milestone with a photo session. Then again when she turned two, we headed to the beach for a session with sand, sunsets and fun! Now, they have added one more to the tribe – gorgeous little Frank! Our newborn photo session was a hoot, with giggles, bed jumping and a marvellous game of hide and seek under Bella’s blankie! Frank was absolutely not interested in having his scheduled sleep time, but instead wanted to watch my every move, totally transfixed by my camera. He finally gave in to sleep – right in the final 5 minutes of our session!

Thank you again Rignanese Family for inviting me to record so many wonderful memories for you, and for the long chats and coffee!


Baby Eveleigh | Sydney Newborn Photographer | Elysium Photography

I was blessed with the honour of photographing this beautiful couple’s wedding just over a year ago, and was recently blessed again with documenting their newest addition, sweet little Eveleigh!

During their in-home lifestyle photography session, we were joined with Adam’s two older daughters, as well as Adam & Jenna’s first daughter, Estelle. They had a marvellous time admiring Eveleigh’s tiny features, giggling at how much fun it was to sit in dad’s lap (even if they thought they were too big to fit) and enjoying some cuddly time with the new little sister they are clearly besotted with! Their close and connected bond was certainly evident in each and every image we captured!

Thank you Adam and Jenna for asking me to document this incredible new chapter in your lives! I am truly humbled with being able to witness your little family growing!


Baby Evie and Family | Sydney Family Lifestyle Photographer

From my very first communication with Diane, I just knew this was going to be a fun session! 3 littlies under 3 would mean I’d be kept on my toes! In my client questionnaire, Diane mentioned that “We would like to remember the happiness and youth of our children – like the way they run and play. The way they show each other love. The way we show them love (which as adults they will know but not necessarily remember) – kisses, cuddles etc the joy of us as a family”. Such a great answer! I couldn’t wait to capture this special new chapter for them and convey their relationship and family bond.

Baz and Ivy with their cheeky little smiles and cracker of a personality both had me in stitches with their antics. So full of energy, they had me tearing about this grassy field trying to keep up with them! Then taking energy levels down a notch, they each showed such a tender and caring side towards their little sister, Evie – sitting in mums lap and stroking her head, or gently holding her tiny hands.

Even dad, Glenn, enjoyed the session. He was such a trooper keeping up with the kids energy levels, spinning them around and around, zooming them like aeroplanes – I think he was extremely relieved to sit down for some quiet cuddles after that!

Thank you Diane for bringing your gorgeous little family out for me to photograph! x


Baby Gilly | Sydney Newborn Photographer

This darling little girl is so very treasured! I’ll bet your reading this and thinking “yeah, I bet you say that about all the newborns you photograph”. Well you see, this sweet little one is extra special – she is surrounded by the love of 10 siblings (yes, you read that correctly… 10 incredible children!) as well as an angel sibling to watch over her.

Gilly’s supermum, Belinda, and I have known each other since high school, so it was such a rewarding experience to bless her beautiful family with these images. I went into this session with the certainty that I would shoot the whole thing specifically for black & white. You see, when an image is black & white, it forces you to focus on the details and emotional connection, rather than being distracted by different elements in a colour image. All her dear little newborn features are preserved for an eternity!

Baby Cooper | Sydney’s Inner West Newborn Lifestyle Photographer

At just 18 days new, little Cooper certainly had his charming talents perfected. He was so alert yet calm and relaxed the entire session, that we even managed to capture him in dad’s hands awake and still – not an easy thing, even with a sleepy bub!

I had the pleasure of photographing Jason and Natara when they got married in March 2017, so when I received a message from Natara asking if I would come and capture their newest addition, I was beyond thrilled! Entering their gorgeous home to see so many of my favourite images from their wedding day framed on their walls was so humbling.

Their wonderful home yielded so many amazing little nooks of photographer gold! We shot everywhere – bedrooms, hallway and even the kitchen. Their beautiful loving connections was so perfectly captured in every little moment spend with Cooper. He is truly surrounded by so much love! Thanks Jason & Natara for inviting me to once again capture your books newest chapter! xx


Uriah | Sydney Newborn Photographer

Ok, so THIS is why I do newborn sessions in-home… everyone can kick back in the comfort of familiar surroundings, mum and dad can wear comfy clothing, everyone is relaxed & calm, and most importantly Grandparents are always welcome! Uriah’s grandma was visiting all the way from Canada. There were lots of hugs, happy tears and beautiful quiet moments of connection with their newest family member.

It was so exciting to find out what Nathan and Heidi had, since the gender was being kept a surprise. It’s always so lovely catching up with my maternity clients and seeing so many dynamic changes which have taken place in such a short time. Even after our session had wrapped up, we sat around and chatted for hours. It’s such a wonderful privilege being welcomed so warmly into clients homes and lives and being a part of capturing such an awe-inspiring chapter in their lives! I’ve been invited back to capture Uriah and his other Grandparents when they visit in November and I am so eager to see how many changes he has gone through in his first 3 months of life!


Harriet | Sydney Newborn Photographer

Newborn Photography in-home session in western Sydney

When all 3 family members are this darn gorgeous, when their home is styled to perfection and to be greeted by the cutest pug dog in the world (who’s name was Hermione, so this Harry Potter geek practically melted!), well there are just no words needed for this session. A picture speaks a thousand words, so here’s 21 images for you to enjoy of Hus, Hannah and the divine Miss Harriet!

PS – can you spot the cheeky Hermione sneaking into our shot…?
