Christmas Mini-Sessions | Baby Photography Melbourne

It’s the end of November which means one big, important, exciting thing.  Christmas is coming!  And although that is exciting for every child (and child at heart) it’s even more exciting with a new baby or baby sibling to share it with!  And of course, we know exactly how that feels in our household!  So to celebrate, we have created a little vintage Christmas wonderland in the studio!  We have an exciting little package to share with our lovely clients, and to extend to new friends as well.  Christmas mini-sessions are a perfect way to see our studio and get a taste for our photography.  We have exciting things up our sleeves for 2016, and can’t wait to share with you!

Our exclusive Christmas Photo Sessions run for approx 20 minutes, and can involve just baby, or all siblings too! Package includes an online gallery of your images, a facebook preview to share with family and friends (we can even make this into a digital Christmas card!) and your favorite FIVE images as full resolution digital downloads.  Of course if you love them all, we have a huge special to have them all*!  Christmas Mini-Sessions are $120. (for up to 3 children, $30 per child after)

Christmas Mini-Sessions will be running during the week, and we have VERY limited places available on Sunday 29th November and Sunday 6th December.  So please get in quick!

If you are after a more natural family portrait session to gift your partner, or grandparents, or even yourself, we are also extending our Spring Special as gift vouchers, AND can be used as outdoor or studio sessions.  This means if you purchase a session before December 31st 2015, you have until December 31st 2016 to use it.  Perfect Christmas present for those with a little one on the way!

So without any further rambling, here’s our first first Christmas session of the year, little miss 9 months!

Arlette 8 days | Newborn Photography Melbourne

(… And a kitten who’s feeling a little jealous of the new arrival!)

We would like to introduce you too…..

It is with great excitement that Alex & I announce the birth of our daughter Arlette Rosalie Mary Dewar. Born on the 15th July, weighing 6 pounds 7.

As some of my lovely clients know, it was a rough pregnancy and our little one had a rocky start to this world, requiring a short stay in Special Care.  Affectionately nicknamed “Diva”, Arlette already has us wrapped around her little finger and is slowly learning the demands of being a photographer’s daughter!

Ask any baby photographer and most will say, that posing and taking photographs of your own baby is not easy.  I found it almost impossible!  I started out with so many ideas that I wanted to do, dreamed up so many beautiful images while I was pregnant.  Forgetting my own number one rule with newborns.  THEY decide what images they want of themselves!  So with this in mind I let Arlette practically posed herself, I just gently persuaded in some areas of course;)

I remain on Maternity leave, however we look forward to returning to the studio to continue capturing beautiful memories for our clients very soon! In the meantime, here is the start of many images  – our dear Arlette in her first week xx

New | Melbourne Newborn Baby Photography


Happy New Year!  We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!  The blog was very quiet during 2014 and this is something that will be change in 2015!

To kick of the New Year here is a beautiful little girl captured in the new studio!  We have some exciting changes coming to Iris Creations and look forward to sharing the news over the coming weeks…  x

Welcome – to the NEW Iris Creations Photography!

The name Iris Creations was born when I was about 15 years old when my best friend nick-named me Iris (but I’m not going into that story!)  Since Iris Creations Photography was launched over six years ago I had a vision in my head for the “look”.  It’s taken a few variations and a few changes to finally become the business that it is today.

Within the portrait world, I specialise in Newborn Photography & Maternity Photography.  But my other love is photo-documenting Weddings.  Those moments in life where the LOVE is so intoxicating it makes everyone smile, no matter what.  But blending these different elements didn’t appear to be easy.

Enter stage right, the amazing team at Netra Chetty, who designed the new logo & flower element.  I like to be a little different, and whilst I wanted the soft delicate element of a flower didn’t want it to be a obvious “iris”.  Thankyou girls, I adore the new logo!

Enter stage left, the AMAZING Kristy Winter, who has put it all together to create the website and Facebook page… LOOK!  Isn’t it GORGEOUS!??  Honestly, if you could see into my office and studio you would see me jumping up and down like a child on Christmas morning!

This is the new Iris Creations and I’m SO SO SO happy!

And now, to celebrate, meet the beautiful Kristy and her youngest gorgeous daughter Shae, who was the model for one of my Silver Awards at this years Australian Professional Photography Awards.  (For more information about the awards, please visit HERE) It’s always a little nerve-wracking to photograph another photographer, however the beauty of my friendship with Kristy is we always seem to have similar ideas and visions, and I HOPE this one has turned out just the way she visualised!

Enjoy xx
