Carmen provided us with an enjoyable, calm and fun photographic experience, when our baby Jude was just ten days old. Thank you for providing us with some treasured photos.

We just got our photos back from Carmen and we are beyond happy with them! She was really patient and gentle while photographing our baby and worked with him so well. I’m so glad we had these memories captured so beautifully. Highly recommended!


We had a photo shoot for my 2 weeks old daughter, and it was amazing. The studio was nice and warm, and Carmen was so patient and professional. We will definitely do it again if we have a second baby ūüôā


Carmen was absolutely sensational! We were delighted with how our family photos turned out. She even accommodated for our dog to be part of the shot. Definately recommend Carmen to anyone wanting to have photos of the family or their babies.

Here is a little secret for you. There is no such thing as someone who is "photogenic". There are simply people who know a bit more about how to pose for photographs than other people. These skills are certainly something that everyone can learn. It is part of my job...

Carmen’s newborn photography and family photography style is simple and natural, focusing on the subjects as the main focus as well as human connection. Our newborn photography sessions are currently held in our client’s homes in the Mornington Peninsula and in the Eastern suburbs of Melbourne. We are in the midst of constructing a new photography studio in Balnarring.

Family photography sessions are popular and these are held at various locations. If you are thinking of booking in a photoshoot, the best things to do is to have a chat with Carmen to discuss the type of session that you are after. Carmen always has some great ideas for location photography for you and your family.

Carmen also conducts a handful of commercial photography assignments each year and this work is not advertised on this website.
