Congratulations on yet another incredibly precious and exciting milestone! Can someone hand me a tissue, please? I’m a total sap when it comes to celebrating a soon-to-arrive squishy bundle of joy.
From maternity to newborn bubs and family shoots, I am obsessed with capturing a family’s journey through life. SO obsessed that if you book a newborn session with me, I’ll throw in a complimentary maternity session. I know, third-wheeling stalker much?!
Because we all know that time flies. One minute I’m making you laugh at one of my stupid jokes, while you cradle your fresh-out-of-the-oven mini human, and the next you’re flipping through the album with your kindy-aged son or daughter. Reliving the moments all over again.
It’s such an honour to be able to help you create beautiful memories that you’ll be cherishing for years to come. Plus, I’m not gonna say no to a cuddle!
Natural, fun and authentic is how’d I describe my portrait style. Encouraging the raw emotions and letting your unbreakable bond shine, I’ll capture the TLC-filled connection your family shares.
When you look through the photos for the very first time, or 20 years down the track, I want you to feel the heart-squeezing love all over again.
When you book a newborn photography session with me, you get a complimentary maternity session. This includes the hire of all of my fabulous bump-friendly gowns. Yep, all of it, 100% FREE.
See, I said I was obsessed…I’m here to third-wheel your family’s journey FO’LIFE!
OK, you’re weird, but fine, Kristie Lee, how do I book a newborn session?
As soon as you find out that you’re going to be a mama, book in with me ASAP. Reason being, I only take on a limited number of newborn studio sessions a month – it helps me ensure that every single bub gets the 10000% care and attention they deserve.
Once bubba arrives and you’re home, let me know and we’ll finalise a date for your shoot. To make the most of their gorgeous squishiness, the best time is between the 6 to 14-days mark.
A newborn photography session usually goes for up to 4 hours, but we’ll let your new bub set the pace – all I want is for you and your baby to stay relaxed and have fun together! We can take a break whenever bub wants a feed or needs to be settled.
So easy, it’s almost magical. Just like your new mini-me.
Unless you’re some sort of magical superwoman (power to you though), you’re probably feeling a little “bleh” or thinking “I don’t look great at the moment”. All you want is to take a 48-hour nap and have someone handfeed you your favourite snacks.
I hear you, I feel you.
I am here to support you throughout your maternity shoot and I’ll make damn sure that you’re feeling AWESOME. Because, mama, you bloody are! Even if you aren’t particularly “feeling it” at the moment, I KNOW that you’re going to want to look back over these photos one day and be like “WOW, I made another human”.
Plus, there’s no need to stress over what to wear because I’ve got a huge range of beautiful maternity gowns, for all shapes and sizes, for you to pick from! And for the ultimate pamper package, we can upgrade your booking to include hair and makeup.
If you’re thinking of locking in the newborn package to claim your complimentary maternity session, I highly recommend that you book in around the 31 to 36 week mark.
Such a special time in your journey to capture
FYI: Booking in your newborn photography session early is crucial. I only take on a certain number of newborn shoots a month to ensure that I give each session 10000%, and also to allow if bubbas arrive early or late into the world.
Portrait packages start from $760, and a $100 session fee is required upon booking.
Shot in my cosy studio, I absolutely loooooove photographing newborn bubbas! Ahh, the rosy-cheeked squishiness…I die.
Beautifully set up and ensuring that your newborn baby is 100% comfortable and safe at all times. You can sit back, relax and just enjoy watching your bub be the star of the day.
Most of the time when I look over my shoulder to check on mum and dad, I’ll catch them snoozing away on the couch. True story. Might as well catch up on all those lost ZZZ’s right?
Every newborn I photograph is a gift
“Every newborn, every shoot, I see the world through a whole new lens. Your story will be different from the last, and this ignites my passion all over again.”
Enquire - Loved everything you’ve seen and read so far? Amazeballs! I can’t wait for us to chat about your photoshoot goals. Flick me an enquiry and we’ll get started!
Book – Let’s lock in a date for your portrait session. Studio or outdoors, your choice! Partners, siblings and of course furbabies (for outdoors) are more than welcome. Let me know if you’d like hair and makeup to be organised too (might as well get pampered).
Artwork – I know you’ll probably be missing me already and let’s be real, I need my cuddle fix. You return to my studio and we’ll watch the slideshow I’ve put together of your amazing journey. Choose your forever artwork to take home and celebrate the lifelong special memories that’ve been created.
BUB’S ARRIVED! – YEEEEEEEESSSS! Once you’re all settled in and feeling ready, shoot me a message and we’ll book in your studio newborn session. I’ll create some magic (and steal some cuddles) while you get to sleep on the couch.
Now that you’ve got beautiful photos of your love and little one, why not show your home some TLC too?
Professionally shot and edited, I can organise your favourite photographs to be properly printed. Whether you hang them all along the hallway or in the main living area, seeing your precious memories on the wall will add sunshine to your everyday.

“We ordered 2 portrait albums one for our maternity and one for our newborn shoot, because we wanted the seperate and they are just so amazing, The quality is fantastic we wouldn't chnage anything, so worth the investment to have these forever and show everyone. Everyone comments when we bring them out that our photos of our little girls aren't just on a USB. Thanks so much Kristie”

Without you doing any thumb-swiping or mouse-clicking effort, slideshows are a wonderful way for you to sit back and relive the magic from your session.
With a specially curated selection of the “highlights”, you’ll love the little adventure back in time, and sharing your personalised slideshow with your family and friends.
Kristie Lee was incredible! She made us all feel comfortable and welcome, nothing was a problem. She was great with my crazy toddler and managed to find ways to get him to cooperate and “get the shot” as well as getting bubs asleep! A true professional, she is genuine and you can have lots of laughs with her too! We love all of our photos and love our portrait album! Thanks so much.
We highly recommend Kristie, I felt so comfortable in my maternity shoot. She supplied many dresses for me to choose from and made me feel confident in wearing them. She was patient and calm with my 2 year old who was not behaving in the beginning. He finally came around and she was able to capture some lovely photos and some cheeky ones too! When my daughter was born I didn’t think twice about hiring Kristie again. She captured beautiful close up photos that showed my daughters stunning features and some gorgeous sibling ones.
I cannot thank her enough for giving me these exceptional photos of my beautiful family.
Whether you’re a family of 2 or a troop of 20, family photography is priceless. Through life’s up and downs, you stick together, you rise together.
So, let’s capture that unbreakable bond. On a beach, in the woods, or wherever your happy place is, we’ll create some everlasting family memories together. We will have “OMG I can’t breathe” fits of laughter, and my aim is for you to leave with sore laughed-too-much tummies.
You know you’ll appreciate these family photos once the kids start going through those dreaded rebellious years…you know what I’m talking about!
Heaps more casual and relaxed, an engagement shoot is perfect for celebrating just the two of you.
We’ll dance around, stir each other up, chat about the silliest things, and by the end, we will become besties. Plus, it’s a no-brainer way to “practice” being in photos on your wedding day, especially if you’re worried about it being super awks – which it won’t.
You’ll go home giggling about the day, and loving each other that little bit more (if that’s even possible).
To know that you’ve met the soul you want to spend eternity with is wildly magical. Whether you’re kindy sweethearts or a Tinder success story, how awesome is it to love and be loved?!
It doesn’t matter if you’re having a tiny, intimate wedding or going all out with the biggest bash of the century, I would absolutely LOVE to third wheel your day as your wedding photographer. I know I haven’t met you yet, but daaaaaammnnn, I’m getting excited!!!!
From getting ready in the early morning hours with your squad to slow dancing under the stars, I’ll be there to capture all the blissed up, goofy-smiles and teary-eyed moments for you to ooh and ahh over for years to come.
