    Our family of three has been to Little Cherub twice - first for a newborn photo shoot for our daughter and again to capture the milestone of her first birthday. On both occasions Susan made us feel comfortable, welcome and completely relaxed. We were able to have fun and walked away with absolutely stunning images which we will treasure for a lifetime. Highly recommend!

    We are absolutely over the moon with our photos. Susan is very professional, patient, has a great eye for detail and was amazing with our baby girl. The studio is a beautiful space - relaxing and calm which added to our wonderful experience. We cannot thank Susan enough for capturing beautiful photos that we will hold close to our hearts and treasure forever.

    We are in love with the pictures Susan captured of our daughter. She made our experience so special. Our daughter was 10 weeks prem and in hospital for the duration, Susan was so patient with us waiting for her to be well enough to attend the shoot. When we were finally able to attend she was the absolute professional - so calm and loving towards our daughter who at times was unsettled and upset. She showed so much patience and worked tirelessly to achieve the perfect shots. I have to thank you Susan also for your generosity towards us with our pictures. We are so happy to have the perfect shots of our daughter to last a life time.

    Susan was brilliant in the way she captured my little ones photos and handled him during the entire process. I am so happy with our photos it was so hard to pick which ones we wanted to keep. Her studio and wardrobe collection is magnificent with the most luxurious garments and so much variety. Thank you Susan, I will definitely be coming back when number two arrives. You are truly gifted at what you do xx

    My family and I are absolutely amazed by the quality of images and service Susan has provided us. Her beautiful studio and techniques she used to calm our little girl took away all the stress and anxiety we as new parents had going into the shoot. We definitely look forward to working with her again!

    Susan was absolutely amazing! I was really worried about our newborn shoot as we have a very clingy little man, Susan was able to calm and soothe him and take the most precious photos! I cant thank Susan enough for capturing such beautiful photos! 10/10 would recommend!

    Susan is such a lovely and professional photographer. She made the our whole daunting experience of newborn photography a breeze for us with her ease, comfort and guidance for two first time parents. Her photography work speaks for itself. We love the work she has produced for us.

    It was an absolute pleasure to do our shoot with Susan who was unreal at what she does. It was one of the best photo shoots I have ever seen and her service is floorless. She was amazing with our newborn boy who was able to settle him with a million techniques and get the best shots to capture a truly special moment with us. She was easy to work with and even included ourselves in the shoot to capture even more love and affection for our boy. I can't thank you enough as your service has been flawless. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for an awesome shoot with their newborn as I would say she is the best at what she does. Her backdrops are all real too with no photoshop garbage in the background. Is truly amazing and can't wait to use you again for hopefully our next child or some family shoots in the future. You were awesome Susan !!!!!!

    Our newborn photo shoot with Susan exceeded our expectations. Prior to our session, our little girl was quite unsettled and we almost cancelled. We are so glad we proceeded with the shoot as Susan was easily able to settle our baby and capture absolutely beautiful and timeless photos of our newborn that we will cherish forever. Susan was so warm and professional and made us all feel very comfortable and relaxed.

    This was the most amazing experience We have shared with our new born to date.

Susan displayed professionalism, talent and above all great customer service from start to end. I would recommend little cherub photography to anyone who wants a premium product and an experience they will never forget. A big thank you again as we will cherish these photos forever :)

    Very few people are fortunate to discover their purpose and live it from the comfort of their home. Susan you were born to do what you do. And you do it with grace and humility. We still talk about how gentle you were with our little ones during the family photo shoot. The quality of your art speaks for itself. We knew we had chosen the right person for our maternity shoot from the moment we walked through the door. We are very pleased with the photos and we will certainly be back for more family shoots. Highly recommend. Thank you so much!!! Love Edwin, Peris, Titus & Ellie-Anne

    Susan was such a pleasure to work with. Her professionalism & ability to capture our childs true character was exceptional. The photos exceeded our expectations. Susan was very flexible and made sure we were comfortable and 100% happy with what she had photographed. She was open to honest feedback and very patient when it came to us selecting our prints. I would highly recommend using Susan to photograph your little one!


    February 24th, 2021
    Susan was absolutely wonderful to work with! This being our first baby, at 2 weeks old and having just come out of hospital, we had no idea what we were doing. Susan knew exactly how to help calm our little one down, she was so gentle and in the brief photo session we learnt a lot! The photos came our with all of our little girls personality and are so beautifully done. Will definitely be back again for our next bubba

    Susan is a magician when it comes to working with babies and capturing their newborn magic! Our little boy was definitely on the fussier side during our shoot however Susan was so gracious and caring while trying to keep him happy and simultaneously getting amazing shots. Her studio is the perfect setup and she is incredibly patient and passionate about her art. We would highly highly recommend this service for top quality photoshoots. Thanks again Susan!

    Dear Susan, Ive been meaning to write this for a while however Ive found that it was difficult to express my gratitude in words, as words cant describe how much I appreciate all you have done, and continue to do, for us. The shock and grief which consumed us following the birth of our adorable little cherub Josie almost resulted in us cancelling our newborn photo session. We are not only thankful that we kept our appointment, but that you were so gracious and gentle and you didnt treat us or Josie any differently to any of your other little cherubs. The moments you captured of Josie at 9 days new are not only a treasure, but they also helped us to introduce our little girl to the world. Of all the photographers out there, your images truly showcase the inner beauty and pure innocence of youth, not to mention their individual personalities and absolute cuteness!

    "Hi Susan, Firstly let me just say Thank You! After collecting my USB this afternoon I could not wait to get home and view my images. Your work is undeniably amazing and you have given my boys the most precious keepsake of all. After a conversation with my mum who attended the photography session, she commented that you couldn't have chosen a profession that suited your personality perfectly - I totally agree. Your ability to be mould these cherubs in their poses and be so gentle in doing so, defiantly gives me the piece of mind that my cherub's are in great hands. Thank you Susan for being amazing at what you do, I cant wait to add more to my gallery in the near future. Very happy clients, Jamie and Wade

    Sarah, Mother

    "Dear Susan, I have been reading all the wonderful testimonials you have been receiving lately and realised I did not give you one myself from 20 months ago when you came to shoot my very own little cherub, Kaliopi. I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the truly amazing and unparalleled photographs you took of Kaliopi. I remember the day very clearly - Kaliopi was about 14 days old and just about out of the deep newborn sleepy stage, and natural reflexes that allow them to do the beautifully crafted poses you do so well. She also pee'd and pooped over nearly every prop that was used, and we also had to stop & start as Kaliopi found it very thirsty work. During that time you were nothing but thoughtful, patient and kind to a very nervous and sleep deprived mummy, and that alone is where I think you differ from others in your field. When I received the finished photographs I was pleased beyond words (hand delivered too might I add!). You captured her just as we saw her; precious, fragile and beautiful. The amount of compliments I have received, and still receive to this very day of Kaliopiâ??s pictures are a true testament to your skills and creativity. I still get asked every time how you were able to get her to pose like this and, the only thing I can say is it was one of those things that just worked first go, it can never be copied and it will certainly be the best photograph that has ever been taken of her, and that is really your work summed up. Your hard work and natural talent speaks volumes in the amazing masterpieces you have created not just of my beautiful little baby, but every baby you photograph. Thank you beyond words Susan".

    "Dearest Susan, Not only words can describe my thoughts on how AMAZING you were throughout my journey with Little Cherub Photography. Firstly, Every 4 weeks throughout my pregnancy seeing you capture my stomach in your Tummy Timeline package was such a creative idea. I loved how you supplied the clothing, as I couldnâ??t imagine squeezing into a item of clothing once full term. I loved wearing the same white gown, same jewelry and doing my hair and makeup the same every month. The creative poses you position me in were comfortable, the style of poses showed off my perfect belly, and the photo shoot was always fun. I loved knowing that the last photo shoot would be with my daughter draped in my arms. The tummy timeline is a fantastic package for all expecting mothers. I honestly wasnâ??t going to get a photo shoot of my daughter once born â?? as my mother is a photographer (and honestly who would pay someone else if your mum can do them and for free) BUT I have always loved your work with newborns and wanted the same style of my daughter. At 13 days new you photographed my precious daughter Anastasia. I didnâ??t know what to expect, I didnâ??t know if she would co-operate and I was quite nervous. Susan, you entered my home with suitcases full of all your outfits, accessories, props and you set up your portable studio in my lounge room in the perfect area for natural lighting, which I love the way you work with natural lighting. I must express how amazed I was with the way you handle and hold newborns. You were so gentle and loving- holding her like your own daughter. Being so cautious when positioning her in the position you wanted her in. Anastasia was sleeping, and remained asleep- so I believe this proves you were not rough with her as Iâ??m sure she would of woken. I got to sit back and let you do what you do best, as I wasnâ??t worried at all. Sitting back and watching the photo shoot brought tears- I could see my precious daughter look even more precious- especially

    Tenille, Mother

    "I recently had the pleasure of choosing Susan Fong from Little Cherub Photography to capture two of the most precious times in my life, my pregnancy and my beautiful baby girl Milah. At 37 weeks pregnant and feeling very "over it" Susan turned up to my house and made me feel radiant, and showed me just how stunning women are when expecting. She also made it very easy for my partner to be in front of the camera. I can not begin to explain just how happy we were with the results. The second shoot was an even more amazing experience, we did some pretty tricky poses of my 2 week old and not once did I have any apprehension, my little cherub was in safe hands.Susan has an amazing imagination when it comes to capturing the beauty in your child. I could go on with praise for this wonderful photographer but my recommendation would be to call and make an booking ASAP!! You will not be dissapointed.I will treasure my photographs forever and look forward to giving them to my daughter when she is expecting!!"
