…a couple of years from now, your growing-at-lightning-speed child looking up at you with their doe eyes, asking “Mummy, what was it like when I was born?” Lost in a nostalgic daydream of blurry bits and pieces, you head over to the bookshelf and gently pull out an album. It’s a bit rough around the edges from all the times you’ve paged through this precious keepsake. Eyes bright with curiosity and wonder, your little one nestles into your side as you settle in on the couch, and open it wide.

Gazing at the images, you’re transported straight back to that very moment in time. The second they were born. The minute you became a family. The day your whole life changed forever.
A precious gift you’ll cling onto for the rest of eternity because together, you are a whole.

You close your eyes for a second, recollecting the whirlwind of raw emotions - pain, fear, triumph, and the all-engulfing love. Shedding a quiet tear, arms covered in goosebumps, the memories come back to life with each page turn. The strength you never knew you had. The rush of power and freedom as they let out their first cry. The deep love that consumed your entire being.

More than just a collection of photographs, this is your birth story. Yours to tell for the days beyond, this is your legacy.

I remember the first time I laid eyes on my baby…exhausted yet filled with elation, covered in sweat and god knows what, 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 bear! 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. 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.

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.

Why Birth Photography?

Sydney Birth Photography 

HOLDING SPACE FOR YOUR VULNERABILITY & JOY.
POWERFULLY EMOTIVE IMAGES THAT DO JUSTICE TO YOUR JOURNEY.

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.

These are the images 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, 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.

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

Your birth space is immensely sacred and vulnerable. With your partner by your side, it’s incredibly important that your birthing team honours you with strength and love.

As your birth photographer, I’ll make sure you feel safe with me and the energy I’ll be bringing into your “nest”. Not just a fly on the wall to photography you and this amazing moment, I’ll hold space for you, care for you and will support you and your partner throughout your journey.
