The Birth of Julien – Adelaide Birth Photographer

When I get an email enquiry like this, I get truly excited because I know this couple are empowered and value what I do. No mention of money or packages. Rather a simple communication about why they want their birth photographed, when, how and where they will be supported. Afterall, these elements are what’s most important about their experience.

Hi Victoria, I hope this finds you well. I really hope that we aren’t getting in too late, but I know this may be the case with you being in such demand! My husband and I are expecting our first this July. After having lost many pregnancies, we have been hesitant to book too many things until we got further along than ever before. We have now reached the 24 week mark and all looks good! If things continue on this path then we will be birthing at home with two WCH MGP midwives and a student midwife. Again, I understand if you are already all booked for this time, but you come highly recommended by good friends of ours, so I couldn’t help but at least try! Thanks, Hanna

Not only did I go on to photograph the birth of their precious rainbow baby, Julien – I was also asked to do a pregnancy and newborn session with them. It was a very magic experience and the collection of images I am able to give this family honour their experience beautifully.

Dawn Pregnancy Session – Marnie & Ben

I’ve always been a morning person… and a beach person too! So when I have the opportunity to photograph these sessions, I just love it!

Marnie and Ben were so wonderful and this particular morning was calm and the sky changed hue with every minute – it was magical. And a true pleasure and joy to photograph this session.

Beach Maternity Session – Adelaide Birth Photographer

It was a cool, crisp morning in January. I was excited as I woke up to darkness and imagined the adventure I would share in with Tania and her family. With my camera gear already packed and ready, I headed down to my favorite beach in Adelaide for our dawn photography session. It’s a place that holds a little magic and something I knew Tania’s family would understand.

We had prepared a little ceremony for our session. I asked Tania to help her children write a beautiful letter to their little sibling who they were all waiting to meet. With the help of a little red boat and a bottle, we would cast these wishes off into the ocean with the morning sunrise. What followed was a gorgeous flow of togetherness and love with some beautiful pictures to capture the experience.

Tania has shared with me that they have visited this beach regularly since our session – it has become their special place too.

When Tania first contacted me she wanted to have her pregnancy, birth and newborn time documented. After we met, I knew we could create something so special together. Everything just fit together beautifully and the end result was not only one of the best Journey Books I’ve ever made, but I grew in so many ways from the experience. This meeting was pivotal and has shifted my course as a photographer, and on a deeply personal level.

When it all flows, you know you’re following the right path!

Charlie Rose, a light of hope – Adelaide Maternity and Newborn Photographer

This couple’s story not only broke my heart but also nourished it, with the joyful arrival of precious Charlie Rose. Bianca’s story was a reminder that pregnancy is such a gift but it’s challenges can also hold unimaginable pain.

“She was worth everyday of worry, concern, struggle and pain and she is our closest connection to our baby that we lost.” ~ Bianca, mother of Charlie

It was such an honour to provide this gift of photography.
