Birth Story

Capturing Your Emotions

Words cannot explain the absolute joy and expressions of parents as their baby is born... but photography can. To be in the room as this little person enters the world, to capture the very moment when Mummy reaches out and touches her newborn and Daddy's first cuddle, is an absolute honour.

It is just incredible to be able to save these memories for the families that book me as their birth photographer! And it is the beginning of a great journey ahead for them as new parents or welcoming another child for your growing family.

Birth photography is very personal, but also it is done very tastefully. The focus is on expressions, and first moments. Babies first breath, first embrace with parents, their joy! Privacy is important and I only photograph in the style parents request. You will also need approval from your Obstetrician, but as the Mater Newborn Photographer - I am well trained in this hospital.

Let’s chat about your hopes and ideas, I can try to answer your questions with my personal experience and knowledge of the Mater Hospital and help you feel more informed.

FAQs

Common Queries About Birth Story

Where do shoots take place?

Maternity shoots take place in either our North Sydney studio, or on location, outdoors, usually on Sydney's lower north shore and typically at either a beach or botanical gardens.

WHEN DO YOU SHOOT?

Preferably Monday to Friday (we have our own little families too), but exceptions can be made.

Timings vary on the look you want. For beaches, sunrise and sunset provide the most dramatic effect. Botanical gardens are usually mid to late afternoon when the sun is a little softer. Studio is great any time, as long as it is daylight!

WHAT DO I WEAR?

Before the shoot, we will send you a preparation guide which answers a lot of questions around styling. We will also discuss this with you during our pre-shoot phone consultation, but the key take away is neutral colours.

In studio, we have a number of beautiful maternity gowns and props.
