About the session
A collection of images for you to remember those precious first few days of your newborn's life at The Mater. Aiming to photograph your baby laying on the bed, in the bassinet, sleepy or awake, little fingers and button nose and of course our favourite - their tiny toes!
Baby in mother’s arms, kissing and cheek to cheek. Daddy holding his little one in his hands and cuddling with baby's head rested on his shoulder. For new parents it is the 'first' family photograph to love and share with family and friends. Or for introducing a second, third (or fourth) baby into your family, this is a lovely memory for your children to have, when they first met their new sibling. Once you have delivered your newborn in hospital, please get in touch so the date and time of your session can be booked. The ideal time for your Newborn session is usually the day before you are due to go home.
get to know
The opportunity to spend a few hours photographing a beautifully pregnant woman is such an honour. So often my maternity clients haven't been feeling it, because they are so drained after 30 weeks - this is where I show you the absolute glow that everyone else sees! I get chills when it comes together, studio or at sunset outdoors - something magical happens and you will see me jumping on the spot squealing! It's now become one of my favourite shoots
because the transformation that happens is probably my all time favourite thing. That change in a woman when she looks at herself and sees someone in all nature's perfect glory... it is there that all of a sudden the larger dress size, the swollen feet and exhaustion becomes a tribute to the greatness and privilege it is to be a woman - in her most awesome of bodies - loving, growing and feeding their newborn. This sums it up for me - for sure!
