Families from all over Victoria come in to have their natural newborn photography at my home studio in Bayside Melbourne. Everyone has a story – a lot of the time, our lovely babies do not come easy or without some heartache along the way.
I thought this would be a good time to let you know why I photograph the way I do. When I was pregnant with my first baby, I miscarried at 14 weeks. It was devastating and if I’m honest I never thought I’d get over it. It was so taboo so I felt I couldn’t talk about it. Nobody seemed to understand what I as going through. I was blessed with Olivia’s arrival on Christmas Day in 2012. Feeling that warm, slippery bundle placed on my chest and seeing those eyes stare into mine with the perfect fingernails and smattering of dark hair….I couldn’t imagine hiding or distracting all of that with bonnets, headbands and props, I just couldn’t. People who book me get it, and want the exact same thing.
Nobody will ever photograph people the way I do and I’ll never be the same as anybody else, because my past experience is what drives me, what makes me see the world the way I do.
It’s not uncommon for me to shed a little tear as I prepare your galleries, recalling your stories on how you got to where you are today. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing your stories and allowing me into your world, if only for a little while.
