Photography sessions that don’t feel like hard work.

      Melbourne family photographer
      Uncomplicated photos, joyful and easy.

      As a Melbourne family photographer I’m invested in you having incredible images that also speak to the realities of life. Your everyday is worth celebrating. I don’t do things that are over-the-top fancy, nothing too tricky, just the real stuff – joyful and uncomplicated.

      I take photos of people like you.

      Family means a whole lot of different things and great photography responds to what’s going on. You wont find cookie cutter photos here or any kind of heavy leaning into Instagram trends (Here’s mine). I am a friendly slightly nerdy introvert who is really good at working those who are a bit camera shy and I work fast to get kids on board.

      I really love my work, I’ve been doing this for over 10 years. Please have a look around and if you love my images I’d love to photograph you.

      If you’d like to get straight to it, you can find full pricing over here.


      “Oh Bec, these are just incredible. The best investment we could ever make – thank you for capturing our little family. You are just second to none and we’re so grateful for you.

      Thank you, thank you, thank you. Now… I’m off to replace the 1ltr of tears that just fell out of my face.”

      Hey, I’m Bec

      I’m a photographer based in Melbourne, Australia.

      You don’t need to pretend or dress up. You don’t need to have a particular style of home or fancy decor. You’re already in this glorious life. Invite me along and I promise to be present to your real moments and focus on the things that matter so that you can have them for keeps.

      I offer family photography, in-home newborn photography and birth photography – I accept a limited number of weddings each year (because I can’t seem to stop), and have photographed weddings for over 10 years.

      It’s one of my all time favourite things when couples invite me back when they’ve had babies!

      Please enquire as soon as you have dates to avoid disappointment.

      I am based in Melbourne’s outer east but photograph all across the state, from Gippsland, to Sunbury to the Mornington Peninsula.

      (Ps. I have kids of my own and your house mess cannot scare me.)

      “You are truly astonishing at capturing beautiful moments of joy that no one else would notice. We have never seen a photographer so gifted in knowing how and when to capture those moments.”

      Arielle & Peter

      “Oh Bec I’m crying!! They are the most beautiful photos I have ever seen! I love them all so much. I love the smiles, the light in the trees, the foot in the window, the ones with all of us, the ones of just the kids, all of them! You have captured their little personalities so perfectly. I think the last few weeks have been one of the happiest times in my whole life, and I’m so grateful that you’ve captured my little iso bubble for me to keep forever. Thank you so much. I have loved your work for ages, I’m so happy you were able to do this for us. We will definitely have you again. Absolutely love every single photo. Honestly the best photographer we have ever ever had. Much love to you x”


      “I am utterly speechless! You are so gifted, these are beyond beautiful. We have watched the slideshow about a thousand times. Everyone I’ve sent it to has cried. I am so happy!! Thank you so much – thank you for capturing us so perfectly, we will treasure these forever.”
