There is nothing more special than growing a little person in your tummy. I would love to document this wonderful time in your life. The first weeks go by so fast and your little one grows up with the blink of an eye. Let me capture the yawns, stretches and first cuddles with your baby.
I will photograph you and your newborn in the comfort of your own home and create memories you and your baby will treasure for years to come.

Janine takes very limited numbers for each month, please book while you are still pregnant to avoid disappointement. A deposit of $300 is due at time of booking to secure your spot, the balance is due the week of your newborn session. Sessions include immediate family members only. In addition to your session images, you are able to order high quality print products through your private gallery. Convenient and affordable.
Please get in touch with me via the contact form to discuss my service as a Melbourne family photographer. Once you have decided on a date for your session I will forward you a standard portrait session agreement as well as an invoice. Your session is logged in as soon as you've paid the deposit towards the session fee and filled in the agreement. From there we will have a chat and work out exactly what feel and look you are after, go over locations, outfits and any other questions you might have.
I will take your newborn photos in the comfort of your own home. As a Melbourne newborn photographer I love creating memories of the first moments you and your baby share, which are forgotten so quickly. The little yawns and stretches as well as the cuddles and the essence of your family. I service all inner Melbourne suburbs, such as Hawthorn, Richmond, South Yarra, Fitzroy and Malvers as well as outer suburbs from Williamstown down the all bayside Melbourne suburbs and south east of Melbourne to the Mornington Peninsula.
Your maternity photo session can be done in the comfort of your home or at a location of choice. Melbourne maternity outdoor photo sessions are strictly done at sunset to get those beautiful sunfilled images you see in my portfolio. If you love the golden light you see in my photos I recommend an on location sunset session. Whether you love the beach, hiking in the hills, having a picnic in a big open field, spending some time on your families farm or exploring the city lane ways. Melbourne’s scenery has a lot to offer. I travel all over Melbourne to create a unique and special memory for you and your loved ones.
I always recommend to keep things simple, casual and comfortable for your in home newborn sessions. I suggest light natural colours such as grey, olive and off white with denim jeans or maybe a casual cotton or linen dress. Please avoid being super matchy with outfits but rather mix and match 3-4 colours. Natural tones photograph really well. I love floral pattern, stripes and textures. Layers also help covering up those few extra kg you might want to hide after you had a baby. Please stay away from black or any bright colour such as pink or purpe as well as logos/prints on clothing. You can find some inspiration on my blog. As a Melbourne newborn photographer I love to create something that represents you as a family, a memory to keep for a lifetime. If you are unsure about your choice, send me some photos through or ask me on the day. I am here to help.
If you decide on an intimate in home maternity photo session you have the option to start out with a casual singlet and jeans or a cotton dress, and then change into some Calvin Klein or lace underwear if you like to get some pure belly shots. For an outdoor sunset sessions I love flowy floral dresses or a simple top with jeans. Natural tones photograph very well. I would stay away from any prints/logos on clothing. I am more than happy to go through styling ideas with you if you are unsure about the look you are after.
You will receive an online proofing gallery within 2 weeks of your photo session. From there you can decide which collection is most suitable to your needs and wishes.
