Simone Toorenburg Photography

“Akward??? ” Not really.

Maternity session “mini moments”

All the communication with Nala was so warm and lovely. And when we met on the beach at Mt Eliza there was a instand click! I got the heads up from Nala that her Partner Luke might be a bit awkward and did this shoot just because it was meaning the world to Nala. This is what happens a lot. but i promise that at the end of every shoot everyone is always saying how relaxt and fun his session was. 

I think her review tells it much better than:


Simone was recommended to me by dear friend after a hilarious conversation regarding the embarrassing staged family photos that were big in the 90s. Wanting a maternity shoot that was natural and not staged was super important, thus I decided to check out Simone’s work after seeing my friends gorgeous family photos. Trawling though Simone’s Instagram, I was blown away by her pictures and the sweet moments she was able to capture. From the outset Simone has been super easy to communicate with explaining the whole process. She was flexible with our ideas incorporating both our crazy fur baby and a sentimental garment into the shoot. Simone’s style guide made choosing outfits extremely easy which was another bonus, especially for a indecisive pregnant person! The location Simone recommended was absolutely superb. It was quiet and private which allowed both my husband (who is extreme camera shy) and I to relax. Being heavily pregnant all I wanted was to feel calm, comfortable and relaxed and with the help of Simone, we nailed it. The session was a great. It was super relaxed with many laughs shared. Simone’s calm and positive energy really made the entire experience enjoyable and EASY! I would do it again in a heart beat!! We will definitely be back
