Simone Toorenburg Photography



Wow this is it!!!! My first ever blog. Let’s introduce myself first.

Hey I am Simone, I am a Mum to two gorgeous young boys, Finn and Reff, with my high school love Luuk! Maternity, Newborn and Family photography is my passion!!

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 handle two jobs. I teach on the Leesplank and my photography.

Simone is 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; love the golden sunlight just before the sunset and Moody skyes therefor 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. So started to do professional workshops and slowly created my own little business.

Yes, 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.
