Newborn, Maternity & Family Photographer

Welcome to Simone Toorenburg Photography

Take me with you through your journey of life.








Taking photos is my passion and I would love the opportunity to showcase you and your loved ones. I hope this website gives you the chance to get to know me a little more and understand what the experience of working with me is like. The most important thing to me is to ensure I understand the vision you are after for your session, so you are left with both beautiful memories and timeless images, that you will cherish forever. 

I specialise in maternity, newborn / fresh 72, and family photography, working with a relaxed approach utilising all-natural lighting and not overly posed positioning. The shoot will capture parents embracing their babies, playing around the same way they do at home, detailing the stage of life your children are at, laughs, cries, just all the goodness of childhood and the beautiful moments that make up your family.

Whether you have been recommended from a friend, found me on social media, or searched your way through seemingly hundreds of photographers to find your way here, I am so grateful for the chance to connect with you.

Meet Simone

Hey I’m Simone, I am a Mum to two gorgeous young boys, Finn and Reff, with my high school love Luuk! I have worked with children for over 15 years, firstly as a Day-care Teacher, then after studying, as a Primary School Teacher. We currently base ourselves in St Kilda having moved over from Holland and have lived here in Melbourne for almost a decade.

I am a dreamer who believes you can chase your dreams every day.
I am a seeker of joy in all moments. I love the beauty of natural light floating into a home; I love the golden sunlight just before the sunset and Moody skyes. I love the moments in between the moments!!!

My friends and family will tell you I am creative, organised, precise, happy, warm and patient.

The reason I got into photography was because I was so inspired by my own birth photography experience, during the birth of my son Finn. How this moment was captured was so amazing I wanted to offer the same experience to other families.

I would love to work with you and your family to tailor your session and tell your story through my photographs. With my own beautiful growing little family, I understand that life is busy and taking the time to capture all those memories is so important.
