Birth

Birth Photographer Melbourne

Behind the lens, I see the world differently. I enter a zone, a different matrix. Time slows down, expands and multiplies. My attention is drawn to the seemingly ordinary, yet deeply symbolic details that evoke feelings beyond words.

… the strength in your grip as you grasp a fistful of your partner’s shirt as labour ramps up, while sturdy arms anchor you …
… the solicitous concentration on your son’s face while he figures out how to make the bendy straw just right, before he offers you a drink …
… the single tear that slips from your closed eye after a tough contraction – just before your doula wipes it away with a cool cloth …
… the brand-new baby capsule half-buried under a pile of tiny baby clothes and wraps …
… the way your toddler’s fingers dance across the velvet-soft face of your hours-old newborn, in a moment of bonding that will endure for a life-time
… your Mum as she comes in, cradling a casserole, fleeting expressions of uncertainty and joy flitting across her face: “Am I intruding – I’ve brought you food – how PROUD I am of you!”

I enter quietly and unobtrusively. You won’t need to pose, I won’t be asking you to look this way or that. I will sensitively and respectfully document this most sacred and epic journey in your family’s story.

I want it to be such that later, you’ll look at a photo, and say, “How on earth did Jade get this shot? I didn’t even know she was in the room!”

ADDITIONAL SERVICES

In addition to photographing your labour and delivery, I also offer first moments, maternity, newborn and family portrait sessions in value bundles for birth photography clients.

 First moments sessions take place within the first 48 hours following the delivery, whereby I return to the hospital to capture any special images you would like during this time (first bath, first meeting siblings or other family members, leaving hospital etc).

Maternity portrait sessions can be taken in the location of your choosing including your home if you wish. These last approximately 1-2 hours and can include family and fur babies!

Newborn sessions can take place in your home as a documentary style . These are approximately 1-3 hours and can include family and siblings with the ideal time to take these images of a newborn being 5-14 days.
