Children’s, Family and Newborn Photographer based in Melbourne.

Children grow up in the blink of an eye.

One minute they are tiny little newborn bundles, all wrinkly skin, skinny limbs and titchy fingernails, the next minute they’re waving good-bye as they head out into the wide, wide world to seek their fortune.

In between are the pages of your family’s story – the laughter, the mess, the light and the dark. The chaos, the fun, the smiles, the tears and, most of all, the love.

I created Beanstalk Photography to capture this ‘in-between’, to tell family stories and create memories from a moment in time.

The Beanstalk Photography Experience

Before the session we will chat in person or over the phone to discuss the images you’d like me to capture, and all the details such as the time, location and what to wear.

I love natural light and use it in my photography. All my sessions take place at an outdoor location or in your home. The session will be relaxed and fun, a time when you can be yourself and enjoy time with your family, whether that’s your teeny newborn, your energetic toddler, your young adults or all of the above.

I am based in Melbourne’s north and happy to travel anywhere in Melbourne for photo sessions.


When I am not taking photographs, I am a soccer mum to 3 – two big girls and a little boy. I am a lover of tea, sport, kids and conversation.

Most of all I love stories, let me help you tell yours.
