Sydney Birth Photography 


I remember my whole birth story from the first contraction to the first time I laid eyes on my baby…exhausted yet filled with elation. At least I thought I did. Until my husband retold my birth story at a dinner with friends and included a whole heap of unfamiliar details. Details that I seemed to have forgotten.

Congratulations on becoming a soon-to-be mama! Creating new life, our bodies are amazing things. Experiencing pain, fear, endurance, power, perseverance, and everything in between. Our bodies are designed to break down and rebuild.
A process that can be daunting, but transforming.

Why Hire a Birth Photographer & Doula?

This is the beginning of your forever. You won’t want to forget a thing.

Once it’s gone, it’s gone forever. Don’t let these memories slip away, keep them safe and close to your heart. Capturing you as you are, celebrating your story, your birth photos will honour your journey. You captured your wedding day didn't you? This day is as special, as transformational, as wonderful why wouldn't you want to capture it. 

Except this story is not only yours to tell. These are the images and experiances that you will one day show to your sons and daughters. Snuggle up in bed and share the story of the day they were born, picture by picture, page by page. Tell them how you felt, what you were scared of, they way you felt cared for, what you were most excited for, what got you through - and how you managed that one last big push that officially welcomed them into the world. Tell them of the very first day of thier lives. 

Birth photography allows me to capture your life-changing hours, minutes, and seconds. 

Eventually you start to forget the breaking down part as you gently cradle them in your arms, rebuilding as the protective mother and fierce guardian of a tiny human that will rely on you for years to come. Along side you I ensure you as their mother are held through the whirlwind task that is early motherhood.

Then between bleary-eyed nappy changes and showering them with tender kisses, your birthing memories fade to make way for new memories, ones that involve you and your little one. But those fading memories hold some of the most precious moments of your life, moments where two became three, changing your world forever.

As a doula I can support you through this process, ensure you are fully informed, cared for, held and supported through your birth and post partum journey.
