THOMAS hospital session | Melbourne Fresh 48 Photography

Welcome to the world little Thomas!

What an honour it is being invited to photograph a baby while still in hospital. This little guy was only hours old when I got to meet him! And boy is he just the cutest little legend ever!

Taking a minute to capture things like those first cuddles, kisses, feeds and nappy changes are so vital. These moments pass by so quickly!

Well done Chris and Kristen, Tommy is just perfect and you’ve both taken to parenting like ducks to water!

10-DAY-OLD PARKER | Melbourne Newborn Photography

Today I got to photograph this little piece of perfection with his amazing family. Parker is the youngest of 3 boys and WOW has he chosen an incredible family to be a part of!

Parker’s mum will always mean the world to our family – and to many other families, I’m sure! You see, Kate is one of Melbourne’s most incredible and supportive midwives! She has helped hundreds of women bring their own little loves earthside, so to be able to capture some memories for her when she’s given me so many amazing memories, is something that truly fills my heart! You have created such a beautiful little family Kate. Parker and his brothers really did well for themselves choosing you to be their Mummy!
Welcome to the world Parker <3 You are already so very loved!

Maternity, Newborn and Family workshop ~ with Dewdrops Photography and Anja McDonald Photography

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of hosting an amazing photography workshop here at Images by Katie headquarters!

I had two world-renowned mentors here to teach a small group of photographers the art of our profession – and let me tell you, they went above and beyond to completely blow our minds!!!

One of the amazing masters we had here, came all the way from the U.S.A! Amy McDaniel of Dewdrops Photography specialises in newborn portraits and uses studio lighting. She thoroughly went over her flow posing, wrapping, prop posing, parent posing and ensured the entire time that she discussed her light placement which is vital for achieving those gorgeous creamy skin tones she is so well known for, which was handy as she also covered how she edits her perfectly posed newborn images.
I have had the pleasure of having Amy as a mentor for the past 3 years. I have hosted Amy twice now and attended 3 of her workshops. After each time, my work has improved immensely and the guidance and commitment to her attendees just keeps giving. I can truly say, I would not be where I am today without her! Thank you Mrs McD xx

This time Amy decided to team up with the talent behind the camera at Anja McDonald photography. Anja flew here from Perth, W.A and boy, she didn’t fail to impress! Anja is a woman of many talents! She prides herself on being able to use all aspects of her photography to ensure she runs her business successfully and maintains a busyness which can often be a concern here in Australia by sticking to one genre. She went over everything from her epically amazing outdoor sessions – both family and maternity, Anja also covered indoor maternity and poor natural lighting which is a great help being in Melbourne, because let’s face it, the weather isn’t always as lovely as Perth! Anja was also generous in sharing her knowledge in her marketing strategies and extensively went over how she edits her outdoor images – entirely by hand with no actions used what-so-ever! Let me say – this woman blew my mind! Anja – you ROCK!

Both these amazing women were so accommodating of each of the attendees and went over everything, with everyone, in detail. There were photographers that had been in “the game” for a while and were looking to polish their skills and others that were just beginning their journey – no question was too hard or too simple. Both Anja and Amy ensured each element that they were teaching was clearly understood and everyone was grasping their new found knowledge!
I think I speak for all students when I say the information from the two days that were spent with incredible educators, was life changing. Not only did every single person learn amazing ways to improve their business and therefore give more back to our clients – I mean, that’s why we do this anyway, right?! But the laughs shared, the friendships gained and the memories created will last long after the workshop ended. These woman went well beyond the call of duty to create a fantastic learning environment and have not stopped giving since! By far the best investment I have made to improve my business!

If you are on the fence about a workshop – choose one or both of these fabulous woman. They wont disappoint.

I am so honoured to have learnt so much from them in my short career. I’m pretty certain, my clients thank them too!


Thank you Amy and Anja, so much. I think I have told you both about 100 times already, but you truly have changed my life and my business. You are both so kind and generous with your knowledge and it really is an art to make that many women feel comfortable and relaxed where there were so many skill levels involved. I look forward to seeing my work grow more in the coming years and take myself to the next level and provide the best art I possibly can for my clients.

12-DAY-OLD WILLOW | Melbourne Newborn Photography

Introducing Willow.

My husband and I have known this little princess’s Mumma since we were little children – very little in fact! So it was no secret I was busting at the seams when I found out Stacie was pregnant. That being said, there are no words to describe how truly touching it was to be asked to capture these special moments for this new family.

Willow of course loved me from the start 😉 – acting like a total doll throughout her session! She did exactly what I wanted her to – even getting a stunning christmas set up in so we could incorporate her birth announcements and Christmas cards all in one!

Thank you for letting me share this special moment with you Stace and Linny! Capturing memories for friends is in a league of its own <3
