Hey, I’m Janet

After years of photographing my own little ones in their early years, what started as a creative outlet grew into Canberra’s Leading Newborn & Family Photography Studio.

So much of my heart and time goes into making sure my kids have the best possible start in life. When your child sees themselves reflected in a family photo, their sense of belonging in the home and in your lives is strengthened.

So from the moment your family starts growing, I want to help you capture all the snippets of the journey to display in your home forever.

Personalised Experience
For The Whole Family

The difference between stunning images that capture your family at their finest, and forced smiles in awkward poses, is being able to truly connect with your photographer.

My job is to craft a joyful experience that brings out the best in your whole family. From designing your session around your unique family dynamic to keeping your kids entertained while you enjoy your makeover.

More than just a photoshoot, this is a chance to remove yourself from the normalcy, be present with your family and most of all capture all the details that make up your tiny human, frozen in time forever.
