A new chapter - Wollongong Newborn Photographer

I am still blown away and completely honoured that families welcoming me into their homes and share part of their lives with me. Welcoming a child into your family is such a amazing moment and one that should be captured and preserved, after all it is a chapter in your story. The lovely D family welcomed me into their gorgeous home for their newborn session here in Shellharbour. We chatted about life and our stories so far. It was like friends catching up for the first time in a long time. It was wonderful to hear about their travels around Australia and getting all the hints and tips for when we go caravanning. Here is a selection of my favourite images from the session.

I would love to come and capture some everlasting memories of your family. You can contact me here to find out more about my packages and pricing.

Baby Z - Wollongong Newborn Photographer

It was a sunny summer morning in the Illawarra and I was welcomed into the home of this gorgeous family. I knocked on the door and the lovely Sandra greeted me with a “Hello, How are you going, it’s been a long time” I was blown away to see a friend from high school standing in front of me, someone I don’t think I had seen for nearly 20 year…(boy that makes me feel really old!). I didn’t recognise her name on the booking form as she has married the love of her life Neel.

It was such an honour to be welcomed into their home to capture this very special chapter in their lives, the birth of their baby girl. The connection, love, all pure calmness I felt and witnesses was nothing short of BEAUTIFUL. This little babe is one lucky little girl to be apart of this family, It was great to catch up with Sandra, hear and what path our lives too after since high school and what path our lives too after.

Here is what Sandra had to say.

Hey Jade, 

Thank you so much for all the beautiful photos you took. We are in love with them and will treasure them for many years. 

Thank you for making it a comfortable shoot for us all. We loved your style and the relaxed nature you brought to the shoot. We will definitely be seeing you again.

Relaxed, calm, full of love and authenticity is my type of newborn session. If you would like a newborn session that is not “in the box” I would love to hear from you. You can contact me here.

Baby "O" - Wollongong Newborn Photographer

Life is full, it has so many up's and down's, but bringing a new baby into the world is definitely one of those up's. It is a new chapter in your family story, it is beautiful, surreal, challenging and simply amazing.

There are so many emotions when you are planning or find out you are pregnant, excitement, sheer terror, doubt, confidence, excitement again...it's a rollercoaster, just like life. You start asking yourself, Are we ready? Is now the right time? Can we afford this? Will we be able to give our child the best life? Will I be a good Mum or Dad? Nothing can prepare you for welcoming your first child into your lives, but I can promise you, you will never feel love like you do when you have a child, you will wonder why life felt so full before you had a baby (and what you did with all your time) and you will never, ever regret it.

The Rogers family, you may remember from their maternity session a little while back, you can see that here. They welcomed baby Olivia into the world in late May and we did her Newborn session when she was 3 weeks old and she was a pure joy. Elise and Matt are so cool and calm and absolutely smitten with their precious baby girl. We relaxed around their home, shared stories about birth, childhood, parenthood and giggled at the little facials and sounds Olivia was giving us. It was a true honour and pleasure to witness and capture this new chapter for this gorgeous little family. 

If you are having a baby soon, I would love to chat to you about capturing this very special time. You can contact me here

Rogers Maternity - Shellharbour Maternity and Newborn Photographer

When Elise and Matt first contacted me to capture their maternity and newborn photos, I instantly knew it was going to be fun. 

Elise and Matt decided on Killalea State Park or as us locals know it "The Farm" at Shellharbour for their session. They often enjoy picnic lunch and dinner dates here and felt it was apart of who they are as a couple and now a family.  I loved hearing how they met, about their first, second and third dates and who they would be if they were super heroes. We also had some laughs with some of the answers! 


Thank you Elise and Matt for a fun afternoon, stay tuned for their newborn images! Special thanks to Paris and Al for the referral, I seriously appreciate the support.

The "B" Family - Wollongong Family Photographer

What can I say, I am one incredibly lucky person to be able to have a job that I absolutely love and be a newborn and family and photographer that my clients continue to return to. These guys I now am proud to call my friends.

I have watched their first born Airlie grow and become a big sister, I have captured Ally's pregnancy with Betty, her newborn and 6 month photos and now her 1 year images, plus a couple of extended family sessions. To be honest, words cannot describe what this type of loyalty means to me and I am SO thankful for it and even more thankful that I get to make amazing friendships with my clients. 

The Bates family are so easy going and relaxed and we always have loads of laughs when we are together. We once again headed to "The Farm" at Killalea State Park, which is where they love to spend their time. We played, danced, sang, picked flowers and tickled our way through the late afternoon. When Airlie was a baby, we captured an image with them on the tailgate for the car they purchased on their honeymoon in Queensland and restored. At this session, we updated that image to include Betty. 

Thank you to the Bates family for allowing me to once again capture your gorgeous family. I am so thankful to call you my friends.

The 'G' Family - Wollongong and South Coast Family Photographer

"When we have each other, we have everything" 

I love photographing families in winter, the afternoon light is just divine. Last month I headed down to Nowra, on the South Coast of NSW to capture the story of the "G" Family. I first met them when their youngest was a newborn. Samantha and I instantly clicked, both being twin mums. We have stayed in touch over the last couple of years and I was so excited when Samantha asked me to tell their most recent family story. Here is a little bit of their story. 

If you would like to capture your family story, I would love to here from you. I am available for travel Australia wide.
