    Belle is amazing! She pours her heart and soul into her work and it just shines through. We feel so blessed to have her photograph our family and would never choose anyone else. She shows an incredible amount of professionalism but also so much kindness and caring and always goes that extra step. I just can't rave about her enough and will always recommend her to friends and family xxx

    I have had the pleasure of Belle photographing my family a couple times now and each time I have been blown away. Not only by her amazing talent but by how warm hearted and professional she is. Belle listened to my ideas and incorporated them with her own to bring something magical to life. I have had countless compliments on all of my photos. Belle was lovely to work with and made every aspect of her work personal yet professional. Everything from the photos themselves to the countless emails back and forth down to the handmade USB case showed her creativity and professionalism. I have reccomeded Belle to a number of friends and family members and have already booked in for some upcoming photos. Anyone considering a birth, breast feeding or baby wearing photographer shouldn't think twice about having Belle capture these beautiful moments. I am so thankful to have these images showing the raw beauty of nursing and wearing my child to treasure forever. Thank you Belle, truly amazing.

    I have had the pleasure of having a few photo sessions with the lovely Belle. I could not recommend Belle's services enough. Not only is she an incredibly talented photographer; her manner, professionalism & love for what she does is why I recommend her to all my friends. It truly shines through in her work and I couldn't think of anyone better to capture precious memories of my family.

    How lucky we were to have Belle capturing Nova's birth for us and leaving us with beautiful images to look back on. I will treasure the photo's always, Nova's legacy. How rare to have an accurate record of your arrival into the world. Belle's photos tell the story of Nova's Birthday perfectly, what a gift!

    Moran, 2LifeDoula
    The birth space is a sacred transitional stage in time in which a woman becomes a mother, it is filled with strength, surrender, magnificence and love and to have a birth photographer there immortalises that moment for the sacredness that it holds. Belle gracefully captures and respects that space in which the woman holds so that she can intimately transcend through it peacefully. Birth photography also holds a great healing tool in birth when things don't conceptualise as planned so that the woman can bear witness to the true strength of what she accomplished on her birthing day.

    Michelle,
    I hired Belle based on her .Her enthusiasm for birth radiated from every part of her. I could just tell that she loved the art of birth photography and I needed positive people around me at my birth and I knew she would bring that to the day. I wasn't wrong either, when the big day came along Belle brought all the birthing energy with her and seamlessly joined in with my team. I was quite aware of Belle being around and taking photos as my labour was quite easy and I spent much of it talking to everyone. I loved that she was there capturing all the special moments I was having with my support team and some moments that didn't include me that I wouldn't normally see or notice. It was wonderful not to have to worry about capturing the moment myself I could just concentrate on living in the moment and enjoying it as it happened. I have truly wonderful memories of my daughters birth, photos I can share with friends and family, photos I can share with her when she is older. As my third birth and the only one I had a photographer at I would have to say it was one of the best decisions I made, this was an event that would never happen again.

    Sheree,
    I chose Belle to photograph the planned Home Birth of my second son in March of 2013 after I seeing her exquisite work shared by the Birth Without Fear Facebook page. From the moment of first contact she was warm and friendly, and shared the same values as I regarding birthing and all things natural. Belle arrived fresh and excited in the VERY early hours of the morning of my birthing day. Her presence was bright, happy, but most importantly quiet and unobtrusive. A true credit to her professionalism, I soon barely noticed her presence as she captured all the special moments of the birth. Alas, we did end up transferring to hospital for assistance later that morning, and Belle was invaluable in the transfer process. She patiently complied with hospital policy and returned to the birthing room to capture more precious images of my fresh little newborn and our newly expanded family. I shall cherish the photos Belle took, and the fantastic service and care she provided, forever. Definitely a worthy investment!

About this Photographer

I am a birth and motherhood photographer/videographer based in Perth, Western Australia. I am very passionate about all things birth and capturing the precious moments of your baby's journey in the world. Those first few moments when you see your baby for the first time, capturing his or her first breath, first cry, the interaction between you and your partner, your happiness and relief. Families especially love it when I document baby's first feed, measurements and weighing and baby's tiny fingers and squishy little toes. One of my favourite moments, is when older siblings meet baby for the first time - so so precious.

The birth of your baby is likely to be one of the most important days in your life. Let me capture your birth journey for you so your partner can fully support you and be present. I am highly experienced in photographing births at home, at a birth centre or in hospital. If you birth your baby via cesarean, I am comfortable in the surgical environment as well.

Birth is intimate. I respect your privacy and the sacred birth space and I am also studying to be a doula with Childbirth International.

I am equally passionate about my breastfeeding and baby wearing photo sessions. I specialise in motherhood photography because I believe in the bond between mother and child and how special that is. Allow me to capture these beautiful and often personal moments for you. I am also involved in local community events. For the past 3 years in a row, I have volunteered my services for World Breastfeeding Week and I am active in promoting the benefits of baby wearing and support Baby Wearers WA Inc events.

I photograph family sessions with a twist. I offer a different kind of family session capturing authentic moments between you and your family. There is a lot of laughter, fun and squishing each other and even a few tears. Using the Beloved technique, I will uncover the joy of your family creating magical artworks you will be thrilled to hang on your walls.

Other photo sessions include: Outdoor Maternity, Day One/Fresh 48, Newborn Lifestyle/Documentary, Newborn Herbal bath, Mummy & Me Bonding sessions and of course, Birth, Breastfeeding and Baby wearing sessions. I also love documenting your Blessingway/Birth Blessing.

I have an ongoing photographic project called "Heart on my sleeve - the undying art of mama hood", so if you are a heavily tattooed mama or soon-to-be mama, please contact me via my Facebook group.

So why pick me?

I am a documentary/lifestyle professional photographer who has completed a Bachelor of Arts degree. I am accredited with the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP), a proud member of the Birth Photographers Australia and the International Association of Professional Birth Photographers (IAPBP) and I am trained in the Beloved technique. I regularly attend self development workshops and recently attended the Australian Birth Photographers Workshop in Adelaide and a Jesh de Rox - Life as an Art form - workshop in Perth.

Need more convincing?

I am a retro loving, happy-go-lucky mama to 2. I am slightly addicted to collecting vintage flour sifters, buttons and film cameras. Travelling is in my gypsy heart and I have been lucky enough to have walked through 27 countries. My furry pets are Betty and Ginger, my 2 chickens. Love them.

So if you are still reading this, congratulations! You may have just found yourself a photographer :)

You probably have a million and one questions, so give me a call for an obligation-free convo.

Come and say HI on my Facebook page (I definitely condone the use of Facebook stalking) https://www.facebook.com/BelleVerdiglionePhotography

I look forward to meeting you and making some magic,

Warmly, Belle xx View More...
