Sessions

Sessions designed around your family, in a fully customised experience for you

Your Personalised Photography Experience

Welcome to Moments Photography Canberra. We're a full-service studio, whose speciality is you, your family and your full service, personalised experience.

Oh, and we're also pretty good at our craft. We're Canberra's leading Fine Art Newborn Photography studio, and we specialise in capturing baby's first year and families of all shapes and sizes.

Your session will be designed around you, your family, and what it is that you'd love to have captured. We don't just meet you on location, then hand over a gallery of digital images, we guide you through an in-person experience, from which you'll walk away with amazing photos and tangible pieces of art that show your family's love and connection.

Whether you're after just a couple of nice photos (our limited edition sessions are for you) or you're after the full session experience (keep reading), you are in safe hands when you choose us as your photographers. You have a life worth documenting.

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

Mel

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

Tenille

Janet is an absolute baby whisperer. Her experience in working with children and her expertise in the field has ensured each time we have worked with her that we not only receive the most beautiful images of our family but it has been a super fun, efficient and easy process. Janet is fantastic is working with you to learn and adapt to your visual tastes and end presentation needs. Particularly love her immense prep work, communication and use of digital forms to make everything so easy.
