I received an email asking me to be part of a surprise gender reveal.. which I was so excited to be apart of as I had never heard of it before.
This is a section of the email explaining the process:
"The radiologist will then write in a sealed envelope the sex of the baby,
(without telling anyone, including the parents). I will then take that envelope
to a party place where they will prepare a heap of helium balloons, depending on
whether it is a boy (blue) or a girl (pink). They will then place them in a
pre-prepared giant box that I have made… and we will then take that box to the
top of Point Cartwright (where they got engaged) and at Sunset release the
balloons and everyone will find out what they are having! "
Need less to say.... MASTER Slockee it shall be! Congratulations to Carmen and Dean!!
It was an absolute honour to be apart of such an amazing day for two of my favourite people in the whole world. 10yrs, 3 kids and a home.. now FINALLY married.. Congratulations again... Monty and Matty!!!

Babies can lose the newborn curl and newborn sleepiness within 14 days of birth. If you’re looking for that little bottom to be up and the baby to be mouldable, please schedule your session within the first 14 days after birth. If your baby is awake during the night, morning sessions generally work better as they will be sleepier.Dress your little one in something that is easily removed without disturbing them too much. Have whatever clothing your baby is wearing beforehand including the nappy on loosely; this avoids red marks on your beautiful baby’s skin.
Whether it is Summer or Winter, the area I work in with your newborn needs to be very warm, warm enough to be uncomfortable for adults. The warm air not only keeps your bub cosy while having their photos taken but it also allows them to be photographed in bare skin. Sleeping newborn portraits create wonderful memories of little ones who are growing so rapidly by the day.
Keep your baby as active as possible prior to the photo session. Babies have awake periods as well, and in order to be ready for their photos they must be comfortable. Please have your baby well fed and burped right before the session; a hungry baby is a cranky baby!
If parents and siblings are being photographed with Bub the key is neutrals....
Keep your bases fairly neutral with denims, white, cream, browns or greys. Soft neutrals draw all your attention to the gorgeous faces and expression people in the image and most important to the perfectly gorgeous, nude little bubba! It’s soft, simple and timeless
A typical newborn session will go for approximately 2.5 hours, the younger the
baby the less likely we will need the whole of the allocated time, but I still recommend allowing for the full time just in case as all bubs are very different. Having this extra time period allows for any extra feedings, nappy changes and spurts of crankiness.
No matter what your baby does, know that I am a mum to 3… I know they all have their moments and I will not stress if bub has a cry, needs a cuddle or lets one rip on me :)
Just try to RELAX and enjoy the moments being captured
