Hi, I’m Janet
I have a pretty great job.
I have the privilege of creating art for families.
My favourite part of the job? Seeing my client’s best moments come to life in an image and delivering the printed artwork so our clients can enjoy their photos every day up on their walls.
Moments Photography Canberra was established in 2014. Since then, I’ve poured my heart and soul into this truly rewarding career of capturing memories.
Along the way, I’ve become an Accredited Professional Photographer with the Australian Institutes of Professional Photographers and have received awards for my work.
My point of pride in my business has been to become a trusted family friend to my clients.
We have the honour of watching families grow.
Get in touch to see how we can make your pregnancy, newborn and family photo dreams come true. You truly have a life worth documenting.
we believe in
- Capturing your journey
- Creating pieces of art for your home
- The unexpected, in between moments
- Providing a full, personalised experience
FINE ART NEWBORN SPECIALIST

She is a mother of two rambunctious girls who are her inspiration – the feeling is mutual though as they often claim they want to be a photographer just like Mummy!
Janet often changes her hair to different colours of the rainbow (purple being her favourite).
Janet’s goal with every photo session is to create an unforgettable experience for your whole family – one that will be treasured forever with artful portraits that are full of true, authentic moments!
Janet is our resident doughnut temptress and you can always rely on her to lure you down the path of indulgent eating. Her caffeinated drink of choice is anything lactose and sugar-free. Coke Zero always wins the day!

Janet was amazing with our son during his newborn shoot. So happy with how our photos came out we have already booked for his 1st birthday "fruit smash"! Highly recommend
Janet did two sessions for me. A maternity and newborn session I was so impressed by the quality of the photos. I did email Janet a lot regarding what I wanted many times and nothing was too much trouble. She has excellent customer service skills but the photos are just beautiful and I am still amazed at how beautiful they are

Janet is a great photographer taking very high quality photos. She also communicated clearly what the process was going to be from setting up the meeting through to the delivery of your chosen product. I highly recommend her services!
Not only are Janet's images breathtakingly beautiful, she has a way of making you feel relaxed and calm- not easy for new or pregnant mummas! Highly recommend
