Featured Session – Miss S, 7 days – Melbourne Newborn Photography

Ok, get ready for a largish post!  Miss S’s sessions has been in the planning stages for A WHILE.  Mum is a photographer friend of both myself and Janet, and I think asked us to be ready for a newborn session before she mentioned that she was pregnant!  (I already have ideas for more sessions – so Miss S better be ready – lol)

Miss S was the perfect model, slept for the entire time, and with two photographers prodding and posing her, she obviously knew it wouldn’t stop until we were done!  Both Mum & Dad were champions, and I have to say, I could have easily posted the whole session into a preview!

I hope you enjoy the preview guys – I can’t wait to show you the rest! (Can we come over again soon?!)


Please remember there are still some spots available for the ACOCP Mini-Sessions available.  These are great value and will make wonderful Mother’s Day Presents!  For more details please see HERE

Mr. R – 1 year old! – Melbourne Baby Photography

This little guy has just turned one!  I first photographed big sister when she turned one, and back then had less hair than Mr R, and now has the most gorgeous bundle of ringlets!

I think his teeth were causing a little bit of grief on the day we met up for photography, however he was a little trooper and performed very well for the camera!

Hope you enjoy the preview Mum & Dad!


K Family – Melbourne Family Photography

This is the 5th time I have photographed this gorgeous family!  On a not so pleasant day (weather wise) we had to quickly book in this session as Mr L already has some of his teeth at 5 months!

I hope you enjoy the preview Mum & Dad!


SPECIAL! Mother’s Day Mini-Sessions (ACOCP Fundraiser)


As many of my clients & blog readers know I’m a proud member of the ACOCP.  We are currently holding a fundraiser to raise much needed funds to keep the organization providing this wonderful service to families around Australia.
For those who are not familiar with the ACOCP:

(from website)The Australian Community Of Child Photographers (formerly The Australian Charity of Child Photographers) is a volunteer organisation of child photographers from all over Australia who have come together to form an organisation dedicated to giving the gift of photographic memories to families that have experienced stillbirths, premature and ill infants and children in the Neonatal Intensive Care Units of their local hospitals, as well as children with serious and terminal illnesses.”

What’s involved:
The sessions are available as gift vouchers to celebrate Mothers Day.  Vouchers may be purchased as gifts or for your own family.
Mini Sessions will last 15-20 minutes, and include approx 10-20 images in an online gallery.  Your sessions also includes a Free 6×8” print, chosen by photographer, and 5% off standard pricelist.
There are two types of sessions available:

  • Studio session & on-location at a park in Carlton.  All sessions will be held on the 16th May, 2009, with a waiting list for the next available day (likely to be late May, early June)
  • There are approx 10-15 gift vouchers available, and these will be booked quickly so please secure your booking asap!
  • Vouchers are not available for newborn or maternity sessions, due to the nature of the time allocated for sessions.
  • Sessions are a fantastic way to have family photographs, or individual photographs of the children.  No more than 4 people can be included in the session, however if you have a larger family you may purchase two timeslots, and have more images presented in your gallery.
  • Mini sessions are fantastic as an addition to a standard session. For example – for family photographs, to photograph an older sibling after a newborn session, or for children who are not lovers of the camera!  (For example my eldest son!)  15 minutes isn’t a long time to grab their attention, and have beautiful professional photographs of them as they grow!
  • Mini-sessions are great fun and quick!

How it works:

  • Pay $50 directly to the ACOCP via paypal (credit card) and book in your time & preference for Point Cook Studio or outdoor location.  You will receive a FREE 6×8” print.  A 5% discount applies to the standard pricelist for orders from these sessions.  You MAY purchase two timeslots if you wish.
  • Gift Vouchers for the mother’s day special will be emailed to you to use or give out for mother’s day.  Sessions are non-refundable.  If weather is against us for the outdoor location, an alternative time will be made available.
  • Your images will be presented in an online gallery 1-2 weeks after your session.  Orders may be placed during a 1 week ordering period.

To book:

  • Please email Gemma via the “contact us” button on the blog, website, email directly, or phone 0423 323 185

Please contact us ASAP to book your session!
Happy Mother’s Day!

Mr H, 3 weeks – Newborn Photography Melbourne

This gorgeous little boy was 3 weeks old on the day I met him, and wasn’t overly keen on showing some skin, but eventually drifted off into a deep sleep, and pretty much stayed that way for the rest our session.  Living near the most beautiful view of Port Phillip Bay, the fireplace was crackling and keeping us all warm, and quite honestly I could have happily curled up on the couch in front of it with a cup of coffee and stayed there!

I hope you enjoy the preview Mum & Dad!
