    Creating beautiful portraits for you that you will truly love forever. That's my goal.

    Believe it not, when my daughter was born I didn't get any images of her as a newborn, that I liked anyway. Sure I got some quick happy snaps, mostly on my phone, but nothing that I wanted to hang on my wall. At the time, being a little bit savvy with a camera I thought, oh I'll just do that myself - of course!

    But truth be told - I was exhausted and overwhelmed!

    Having a child and going through a mountain of emotional and physical changes meant I really just couldnt be bothered taking photos of her!
    And that is now one of my biggest regrets.

    Thankfully things were a bit different second time round and I managed to get some not-too-bad-if-I-say-so-myself images of myself when I was pregnant and some gorgeous newborn images of my son; but probably still not enough in my books!

    I look at the images I create for mums and their families, I oooh over the tiny features of their babies, and smile at the coos and giggles of their older children, and I sit there wishing I had that for my own. Thats what I want to create for every parent - images to hang on their walls, sit on their coffee tables, to make them smile and remember all the new, exhausting, crazy and beautiful moments that being a family is all about.

    Indoor Portraits are created in my Pakenham Upper studio whilst outdoor portraits are created on my beautiful 9 acre property! As a boutique studio I pride myself on the service that I will offer you - from a consultation prior to your session all the way through to helping you work out exactly what will look best on your wall.

    My portrait collections start at $500 for my smallest digital package, $600 for a print package and $2000 for an album package. There is no obligation to choose what you would like to purchase until after you have viewed your photographs. I offer payments through cash, bank deposit, credit card and payment plans - because I know you need flexibility when you want to choose your photographs.

    I'd love to capture some beautiful memories of you and your family. So I look forward to speaking with you soon. View More...

    My family of 6 plus 4 little kids had family photos done by Caroline which you can imagine would be quiet difficult! Caroline was super patient, very easy to get along and very professional. We were so happy with the photos, they look amazing! Excellent communication and everything was done in good timing. Would definitely recommend

    Right from my very first communication with Caroline I knew I had chosen the right person. Her manner was warm and friendly but professional. Her studio is very relaxing and exudes a lovely energy. I requested head shots for publicity, and being a mature age lady, I have become accustomed to the unwelcome lines that leave their mark over the years, so one doesn't expect too much. However, the way Caroline lit my face, and the creative ways she positioned me, produced extremely pleasing results. Whilst normally very fussy about my photos, I had no hesitation in choosing some fantastic shots. My face was suddenly given the glow of a more youthful person, and encouraged me to think that there's life in the old girl yet! Caroline excels in creative baby and children's portraits and I'm sure much much more, and I very happily write this testimonial for all to see, and be encouraged to be on the receiving end of her talents. Gratefully, Kaye Evans Kaye Evans

    Caroline just blew me away with what she was able to give us for our little baby boy. We had newborn photos taken of him when he was a couple of weeks old, and I cried when I saw them! Our boy fussed so much during the session but Caroline was so calm and patient and was really caring that I did not feel any pressure - and I really didn't think we'd get one good shot but we got heaps! I'm so happy every time I look at my beautiful canvas on the wall and I can't wait to get more done as he grows! I'd definitely recommend her to everyone else! Thanks so much. x Rhonda.

    It was fantastic to have our family photos recently taken by Caroline. She was able to put us at ease and create pictures that I have happily hung all around my home. The books that she created for our parents were really amazing, and they love them. But I particularly loved the movie of images she created - I feel like I have watched it at least 100 times I'd think!! I can't wait to get photos taken by Caroline when our little bubs grows up some more. Thank you so much! Claire.

    Caroline was a pleasure to deal with from the moment we contacted her, right through to the delivery of our pictures and products. I was really concerned that my baby wouldn't "behave" but Caroline was so patient and caring; and the images she created were truly amazing. We will cherish them forever. I have already recommended her to my friends! Regards, Therese.

    Beth,

    Dear Caroline, from the moment we met you made us feel at ease - particularly when Harry didn't want to cooperate with having his photo taken! You were so tender and patient and I can't believe the images you were able to capture. I am truly blown away, and I will treasure it all for the rest of my life! Thanks so much again, Beth.

    Rachel,

    Dear Caroline, Thanks so much again for the wonderful images you took of Annie. We were so impressed with how the whole session went, because we were pretty nervous to begin with! We loved the little extras you provided - not just the beautiful pictures and the mini movie, which of course we absolutely love! But that you understood our exhaustion and how tired we felt having just had a new baby, and kept us going with drinks and biscuits! We love love love the canvas that is now hanging in Annie's room. She's already grown so much and you just captured her perfectly. Looking forward to her 1 year old photos now! Thanks so much again, Rachel.

    Louise,

    Caroline, you managed to capture our new little family so perfectly. You already made us feel so at ease when we first met, and although I was nervous leaving the house for the first time after James was born, once again you made it all so easy for us. I loved how patient and gentle you were (particularly for a first time mum like me!). The whole process was great. You answered every question we had and anticipated some we didn't know we'd have! And of course, the pictures you took of James are just stunning. I would definitely recommend you to all my friends looking for their baby photographer.
