Simply Studio Sessions

Harry & Oscar ~ Bunbury Baby (+ Puppy Dog) Portrait

I have to admit I get super excited when my clients ask me if they can bring their pets along to their photoshoot. Those that know me know that I was a vet practice manager before my photography life, and that I love animals of all species, shapes and sizes. To me, our pets are part of the family, so it's only natural that they would feature in a family photoshoot. 

Last week I had the absolute pleasure of a visit from 5 week old Harry and his proud older "brother" Oscar for a newborn portrait. Five weeks is technically (to us photographers anyway) beyond newborn age. By this stage our beautiful babies have already started stretching out and are much more inquisitive about the world around them and less inclined to sleep. So we don't capture as many of those posed, curled up sleeping newborn shots, but in their place we get to capture lots of bright eyed gorgeousness - just check out the many faces of Harry - what a little personality!

Baby Alessandra - 13 days new

Thanks to our joint promotion with Body Firming and Beauty, Kelly and Paul brought their gorgeous baby girl Alessandra to see us for a newborn shoot to capture her early days. She was such a beautiful baby and the session went like an absolute dream :-) 

It was especially lovely to be able to create some memories for her family, many of whom are overseas. At 13 days old she was so alert, with bright shining eyes checking out the world around her. Kelly and Paul were also doing super well as new parents and their relaxed approach was definitely rubbing off on their baby girl, she was just so happy to be here!

We have lots of gorgeous blankets, headbands and props at the studio and we are in our element when we can just use them subtly to style our images while always keeping focus on making baby the star. It never ceases to amaze us how different all babies are, even from day dot. They are full of personality and we love getting to know them and all the little idiosyncrasies that make them unique, those are the memories we really love to capture!


When you book a newborn portrait with us it's up to you if you want to leave it to us to style and create some gorgeous memories for you at our studio, or spend time planning the details with us and get us to come to your home or somewhere special. Just check out the options and pricing here:

Newborn portraits are ideally booked within the first ten day's of bub's arrival so just get in touch and Chat to Us about when to book in!


Teleah's Maternity Portrait

Thanks to our joint promotion with the lovely team at Body Firming and Beauty, beautiful Teleah came to see us recently to capture her baby bump less than a week before bub's arrival!

Teleah was absolutely glowing and we are happy to report that just a few days after her portrait session she welcomed a beautiful baby girl into the world :-)

If you're wondering if your baby bump could look as gorgeous as this then the answer is Yes! What an amazing thing our bodies do as women during pregnancy, and everything goes back to normal (well, almost ;-)) so quickly you really should capture your amazing bump before it's gone. We are passionate about helping you remember the amazing changes your body is going through, and we use our skill and experience to shape the light and capture you in a way that will make you feel empowered and beautiful, no matter what size or shape you are!
