Beloved Photography, Melbourne Newborn Photographer

How did you get started as a photographer?

Photography has always been a love of mine, even as a child I was known to be taking photos all the time!

What did life look like before photography?

I was a primary teacher.

Tell us about a day in the life of a professional photographer …

Studio preparation first thing in the morning, cranking up the heater and preparing wraps and props to be used for the shoot. Newborn shoots take around 2-3 hours…and it’s always a lovely experience. I’m so lucky to get lots of newborn cuddles as part of my job 😊 Late afternoon is uploading images, sorting snd I might even start editing. Washing all the wraps and blankets used, before picking up my son after school!

Do you have a special story to share?

I was once filmed for a tv morning show. I was quite nervous with a film crew over my shoulder…I just got the baby girl all posed and ready to photograph when she did an enormous poo! It went everywhere and had everyone in fits of laughter…it was even used as a blooper reel on the segment 😊

If you could photograph 1 thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Newborn babies always…it’s my absolute passion ❤️

What is the best thing about your job?

Being able to manage my own time…and work with beautiful families.

Tell us something we don’t know about professional photography …

The biggest job hazard…being wee’d and poo’d on far too often!!

If you weren’t a photographer, what would you be doing?

I would possibly be back teaching.

Here’s a blank cheque! What are you going to spend it on for your business?

I’d buy a property with a large, white and bright self contained studio 😊

If you could photograph someone famous, who would it be and why?

To be honest I’d rather photograph ordinary people. I’d love to be able to offer everyone professional photographs 😊
