Congratulations on reaching yet another incredibly precious and exciting milestone! Can someone pass me a tissue, please? I tend to get quite sentimental when it comes to celebrating the imminent arrival of a sweet little bundle of joy.

Because, let's face it, time really does fly by. One moment, I'm cracking jokes to make you smile while you hold your freshly baked mini human, and the next, you're flipping through an album with your kindergarten-aged son or daughter, reliving those precious moments all over again.

It's a true honor for me to play a part in helping you create these beautiful memories that you'll treasure for years to come. Plus, I'll never say no to a cuddle!

The newborn Experience

I capture all that adorable squishiness in my studio based in South Nowra. Step inside, and you'll be greeted by an abundance of natural light and a soothing, neutral color palette. Sessions generally take place around the 5-14 day mark but I understand this is sometimes not possible so they can take place at anytime you and bubs are ready.

My studio has been thoughtfully designed to ensure your newborn's safety and comfort throughout the session. It's a space where you can kick back, unwind, and watch your little star take center stage.

In the studio I'm fully equiped with gorgeous props, blankets, wraps and outfits for bubs so their is no need to stress over what bubs will wear in the shoot. All you need to bring is yourselves, your nappy bag, extra milk (if not breast feeding) and some snacks! 

the  experience 

what to expect....

The goal is to keep both you and your baby relaxed and enjoying the experience. If baby needs a feed or a little settling, we can take a break whenever it's needed. Let's make this session a memorable and enjoyable time for you and your newborn!

Interestingly, very now and then, I'll sneak a peek over my shoulder, only to catch you, the awesome parents, catching some well-deserved ZZZs on the couch. Can't blame you; parenthood is a tiring adventure, after all! 

Quick tip: Securing your newborn photography session early is key. I intentionally limit the number of newborn shoots each month, ensuring that every session gets the TLC it deserves. Plus, it accounts for those adorable little ones who might decide to arrive a tad earlier or fashionably late to the party!

I highly recommend KLD photography! I recently had a newborn shoot done by Kristie and I am beyond happy with how the photos turned out! Upon arrival Kristie was very welcoming and made sure I was comfortable before starting the session. Kristie was really great with my little one, making sure he was nice and settled before the session started by giving him loads of cuddles and rocking him gently off too sleep, I love how Kristie is very patient and takes her time to ensure she captures the best photo, once again highly recommended she’s amazing you won’t be disappointed!

Kristie is absolutely amazing!! So friendly and welcoming. We had her do our newborn shoot/ family photos with our 3 year old as well. She was excellent with our 3 year old daughter and was able to capture the most beautiful sibling and family photos. She took the time to make sure she captured the perfect shots and the editing and end result was surburb!! Could not have been happier with this service! Thank you Kristie for giving us these forever memories .

Daisys mum

Thank you for being so accommodating in our newborn shoot. Was an amazing experience from the maternity shoot to the newborn photos. You’ve kept me sane, and made me really enjoy something I’ve never liked getting done! So thank you! I can’t wait to see the 4 generations photo. My heart had longed for one since forever! It’s a rare theses days. So thank you for being part of such a special photo!
