Melbourne Family and Newborn Photographer


Hey I'm Janine....


So nice to have you here! I am a natural light family and newborn photographer based in Melbourne, Australia.

My passion for photography lies in capturing raw and authentic moments that are otherwise soon forgotten. I feel blessed to be invited into my clients homes to document their love and connection through my eyes and lens.

Melbourne Family & Newborn Photography



I could never have imagined feeling so comfortable in the presence of a photographer, and having such natural images of my family as a result. Janine joined in with the family, and my kids absolutely adored having her around, allowing them to relax and just be themselves. As a Mum, it is so beautiful having these memories with myself a part of them, without feeling we have had to sacrifice on the natural love and fun we share as a family. These images are everything, and we will never go elsewhere after our sessions with Janine!


01. Adria Hassan

Janine has photographed my family on more than one occasion and I couldn't be happier with our images. Being a photographer myself I am fussy about who I use and I can honestly say that Janine is in a league of her own.


02. Samantha Dennaoui

A wonderful storyteller through images. Janine has an amazing talent which translates through beautiful family photography. I highly recommend her services.


03. Clare Martin Lapworth

Breathtaking images and beautiful moments captured. I can't recommend highly enough! Janine is so polite and unobtrusive during the shoot and just allows your family to be yourselves, which makes for the most natural and memorable photos to treasure forever. Money well spent!


04. Bella Van Hattum

From a fellow photographer, I love what you are capable of.
You peacefully captured us.
Just us... I struggle to do what you do. You are free... silently wild is how you see the world.
Keep capturing...
