Portrait sessions focus on capturing some special moments that are  something a little different to your everyday photographs.   It's about those smiles, hugs, gorgeous faces and unique personalities captured in a beautifully simple and contemporary style.

I love how we are all so different, it's what makes every photo shoot unique and special in it's own way.    To capture a range of posed and candid images of babies and children, I use a relaxed play based approach.  It's something my clients love because it's fun and relaxed for parents too.  

This is a beautiful journey, so no matter the age of your children, anytime is perfect to take a moment for your portrait sessions and capture some very special memories.  To have those moments for a lifetime is everything. 

Sessions have been created around different stages.  4 weeks to Belly Time, Sitter, 1st Birthday and Children.  There is also time for parent/sibling portraits if you would like to include those in your session.    Bookings are available weekdays in my East Bentleigh Studio.





I highly recommend Kathryn for a beautiful sitter session. I adore her simplicity of this session and I have been given some gorgeous photographs that I am able to treasure, as well as share with loved ones.

Our experience with Kathy was wonderful. She made us feel at ease and was so patient with the kids. She was great at giving directions. We have so many beautiful photos of our family now. Thank you so much.


Just seen the pictures, wow there fab. You have done an amazing job. I love them all. You made Caidhla feel relaxed and happy and the pictures shows that.

About Me

I love photography and am so grateful it's both a job and my art.  Sometimes a hobby. From studying at PSC Melbourne, learning film photography and moving into the digital era, it's been with me forever.

The fun part for you is capturing some gorgeous moments of those special people that you love and having those images forever.  So let's do that.  Schedule a call or get in touch and we can get this started.
