I got the call to come during the Wiggles concert, so I left the kids with Caleb and headed to the hospital as quickly as possible.
I understand. You want birth photos and your partner thinks it’s a waste of money. His phone has a camera with 8 megapixels! The problem with this logic is that’s like asking the celebrant to take photos at your wedding, they’ve already got a super important job to do.
If you invite us to document your birth we can’t promise to make you look glamorous. But we can promise to be discreet and take beautiful photos of you bringing your new favourite person into the world. $1800. Let’s talk.

If the whole birth photography thing freaks you out, but you still want photos of your family’s newest addition we have a couple of other alternatives. The first being a hospital shoot, we arrive very quickly after your baby is born and we document your family getting to know one another. Or secondly we can wait a couple of weeks and come and photograph you in your home doing everyday things. Baby baths, nappy changes, songs being sung and lots of cuddles. All the small moments that we sometimes forget to appreciate. $400. Get in touch.
