Maternity, Newborn & Fresh 72

Maternity, Newborn & Fresh 72


It is such a special time in your life just before your little one(s) arrive, whether it is your first pregnancy or not, every time is unique and precious. We can capture your beautiful bump in a solo shoot or with your partner and/or family (fur babies are welcome too!).

Maternity sessions can be held in the comfort of your own home, or at sunset in the great outdoors. As I only work with natural light I have a few stunning tried and tests locations we can use including the beach, hills or parks all within 2 hours travel from Melbourne. Alternatively, if you have a location in mind please let me know and we can discuss options.

See Locations >>

Maternity photographs are best taken between 32-36 weeks of your pregnancy and so are best to be booked in advance, so you don’t miss out. Sessions last for 2 hours.

I also offer package options for maternity and newborn / fresh 72 shoot.

In Home

Those first moments with your brand-new baby are so special! I will capture those little details you don’t want to forget such as the cute facial expressions, tiny yawns, curled up sleeps and tiny hands and feet. These moments are so precious, and I love to capture your moments of pure love.

In home shoots

Newborn sessions generally take place in the comfort of your own home as it is the perfect setting to showcase your personal style with all your favourite items around you. The home sessions have a lifestyle approach, which provides a homely feel, incorporating as many details of your life and your newborn story.

If you are after a natural style newborn photos with some natural looking wrapping as well as family photos this might be the session for you. Parents, siblings, & grandparents are all welcome. The best time to capture those unique newborn moments are within the first 6 weeks of the new arrival.

If you would rather move outdoors to one of my locations, please let me know and we can discuss options.

What to expect:

  • Prior to the shoot we will discuss the set up you have at home
  • The rooms we will shoot in (living, parents’ bedroom, nursery)
  • The lighting situation and based on that we plan the best time
  • Upon arrival I will have a walk through and may make suggestions on moving a few things around

All in the comfort of your own home. Inside and out if wanted.

In Studio

I offer the option to capture those newborn moments within my home studio and – lifestyle space in St Kilda. The studio sessions are perfect for those who prefer not to be photographed in their home. This session has a more ‘posed’ newborn style to it. My style is natural, but we will use some simple props, wraps, blankets and textures and we take the time and care to transition the baby into different curled up womb like poses with a setting of different colours.

The best time to capture those unique newborn moments are within the first 2 weeks of the new arrival. Parents, siblings, & grandparents are welcome just let me know in advance.

What to expect:

  • Studio is located in two rooms at my home in St Kilda East – address details will be provided once booking is made
  • There will be a minimum of 2 setups using natural looking wrapping techniques
  • The session times last 2-3 hours. Please ensure everyone is ready to start the shoot at the agreed time, any delays will eat into shooting time

As natural as possible. I like to keep it simple but pretty.

"Some of the best poses of our newborn are wonderfully captured by Simone. We loved her home little studio. There was tea, water and lots of yummy snacks and a comfy sofa to relax on while she worked with out little man. I love Simone’s style of working its so homely and warm. and the photos are stunning!!!"
