THE MOTHERHOOD SESSIONS

Pregnancy, Newborn & Breastfeeding

Matrescence is the physical, emotional, hormonal and social transition to becoming a mother. It is a sacred time wether it’s your first or seventh time making the transition.

The Motherhood sessions are all about honouring, celebrating and processing your unique journey into matrescence. To capture the beauty in the changing shape of your body, your relationships and your human experience. Wether in the pregnancy stage, or newborn and beyond, The Motherhood Sessions capture the art of Women in their ever-changing, divine maternal essence, amongst the magic and mundanity of family life. 

WHAT MAKES THESE SESSIONS SPECIAL?

IT’S SIMPLE REALLY.

I PRIORITISE CONNECTION OVER PERFECTION.

If you are looking for super posed portraits, everyone looking at the camera with cheesy smiles and overly air-brushed edits, I am not the photographer for you. I’m also not going to take your newborn baby out of your arms and arrange them in a blanket on a bed away from you. I want to capture your baby safe and snuggled where they belong, in your arms… and maybe Dad’s or an older siblings too.

I provide guidance and prompts to bring out the natural moments of connection between you and your growing belly, your baby and the evolving relationship with those you love most. These sessions are what we term lifestyle portraits, so while the connection is real, I will guide you to more photogenic light spaces within your home, as well as help position you (and your family).

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

A popular waterfall location that I regularly shoot incurs an extra fee of $90 because of the time it takes to walk into the location.

I take a 50% deposit on booking with the remainder due to be finalised 48 hours before the date of our session.

Deposits are non-refundable but are transferrable, to other dates as well as other families. I ask that you please give me as much notice as you can.

I generally don’t cancel/reschedule outdoor sessions due to weather until 2-3 hours before the session time. Forecasts are consistently unreliable and I have cancelled too many shoots in the past, based on dodgy forecasts and lost AMAZING shooting conditions. 

Outdoor sessions are shot as close to sunrise or sunset as possible. In-home sessions are usually scheduled for mid-morning which tends to be the best time for both lighting and small children.

I generally schedule all my sessions for weekends and strictly only shoot one session per week with exceptions made to accommodate newborn sessions because I know babies don’t work to timelines.
