 Birth is by far one of the most defining, treasured and memorable life events that you will ever experience. An experience that deserves to be professionally documented through birth photography. An experience which I am passionate about recording in detail for you in all it's beautiful rawness, to tell your baby's birth story, be it your first, second, third, fourth. . .

Being a mum myself, I know all to well that birth can be an absolute blur. You will be so focused on bringing your baby into the world that there will be parts that you won't remember. By hiring a birth photographer you will have powerful images to look back on, helping you relive your journey and fill in the hazy blanks; the tenderness of your partner, the support of your birth team, the intensity in your face, the beauty of your strength, your first expression when you see your baby, and everything about that brand new bundle of joy in their first moments of life.

The Birth Story Session covers your entire birthing experience, providing you with a visual documentation of your labour, delivery and immediate postpartum moments. I will record this monumental occasion in a documentary style to tell your unique story, capturing all the magical moments as they unfold, for you to treasure for a lifetime.

 PAYMENT PLANS & GIFT REGISTRY

The arrival of a sweet new babe can be a costly time, therefore, as well as interest free payment plans, a gift registry option is available to help ease the financial side of things.

With a gift registry you can ask your loved ones to contribute towards your session cost so that you can have these memories to treasure forever.

Your gift registry can be personalised with a message and an image of your choice. All registries are password protected and can only be accessed by those who you share the password with.

I cannot recommend or thank Danielle enough!
She was amazing and not only took some fabulous shots (that arrived today in the most beautifully presented box) but was a huge support to myself and my family on the day. It really felt like a bit of a party at times with everyone there!
Her work is talented, beautiful and unobtrusive. Thank you Danni for helping capture Eden’s first breaths and for showing me what I already knew - how amazing birth, the female body and babies truly are!
