Newborn and Maternity Photography in Melbourne and Victoria

Newborn and maternity photos that celebrate wonder.

Whether it's your first baby or your fourth, a new baby brings a whole lot of change and challenge but also a whole lot of wonder. I photograph non cheesy maternity and newborns (right up through older babies). I have a gentle and straightforward approach that allows space for real life to keep happening while finding magic in little moments - this helps takes the pressure off what is a beautiful but often overwhelming time.

“Bec was so lovely to work with and I honestly couldn't be happier with our newborn photoshoot. She made the whole experience so lovely and it is a treasured memory of ours from those crazy early weeks. Bec was professional, relaxed and calm and made us feel so at ease. Our communication with her was fantastic. Our photos captured so much beauty, love and rawness in those early weeks.”

What is the booking process when I don't know exactly when my baby will arrive, or how I will be feeling?


Book in your newborn shoot early

If you're pregnant, it's the right time to book! I pencil you in under your due date (because this can be a bit of a vague thing as anyone who has ever had a baby knows!) this ensures that there is room for you in my calendar. And then I wait to hear your exciting news!


Contact me when your baby arrives

When your baby arrives, contact me! We then sort out a date that suits - between midwife appointments and ensuring that you're feeling ready. I'd rather you're feeling more settled than trying to 'do it all' right away just because you feel that time is running away from you. Babies stay small for a good while!


What if I'm not feeling ready right away?

Book your Newborn Session

Within the first two weeks is ideal for that super new look but if you prefer to wait for a little more time for your baby to grow into themselves or for you to be more settled, that's TOTALLY ok. Any age works for baby photos. They just might have a different feel. As a guide for older babies: around 4 months you might be getting smiles and for peak baby rolls and sitting aim for the 8-9 month mark.

What about location?

I photograph newborn sessions in your home. This works especially well for ease of having everything 'baby' on hand and allows for more meaningful images with the spaces you use daily. Being at home also offers flexibility in providing a variety of safe spaces to photograph your baby.

Your home does not have to be fancy (I live in an 80's brick house) or immaculate (you've just had a baby - plus I have three kids, I've lived it). I'll find a window, a bed, a door, a chair - that's all I need. If the weather is suitable I will often photograph a combination of indoors and outside your home. Siblings are of course welcome! Pets also welcome.

For older babies or in warmer months an outdoor family style session may be an option to consider.
