maternity & newborn experiences

"your heart & my heart are very, very old friends"


You and your family are the personification of love. It’s my job to capture that as it emerges when you are altogether. To showcase who you are and what you have. The ways you interact with your children and share a piece of your heart with them. It’s all about being yourselves and letting that be evident in your images. I’ll guide and prompt you. I’ll give you ideas and games to play. Maybe even a song to sing. But it’s a matter of simply taking an hour out of your week to spend playing with your children, loving on them, and sharing in some quality family time together that will be forever documented.




This is the best part, and I am here for it all! I have an extensive range of carefully selected gowns, some of which are handmade lace. Most are one size, fitting women through all stages of life. Each session includes exclusive access to my client closet and a complimentary wardrobe appointment. I have more than enough children’s wear, and my menswear is growing. I wash and steam all my gowns, and bring them with me to your session. Just another little detail that makes your session feel a breeze. I offer styling guidance throughout the entire process to ensure your family are dressed with great attention to detail.




Your session experience is all about being guided along the way to make it a memorable occasion. I’ve already composed a list of the perfect locations that I’ll email you. I know exactly what is needed and what to look for, so you can count on it being absolutely amazing. My style is earthy, with a touch of boldness, and I promise you will love it! There’s a mix of both grassy and water locations.

"Jessie did an absolutely amazing job with our newborn shoot. She was easy to contact and made the whole experience so enjoyable. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough. If you want beautifully captured photos Jessie is the person to go to!!"

the loveliest words from the sweetest families

"Jessie has the perfect eye for a photographer. Her work captures the details and moments in life you want to remember. The chubby baby rolls, the dribbley chins, the sand on stubby toes and the whimsical wonder in children’s eyes as the search and play in their surroundings. She is a delight to work with and made the whole process so easy and enjoyable!"

" I Cannot recommend the beautiful Jessie Walker and her photography skills and abilities more - we loved our newborn shoot with her in her beautiful home studio that enabled us to fully relax and truly enjoy this experience, soaking up our newborn moments as a new family <3!"

" Jessie, you have really outdone yourself with these newborn photos! You’ve really captured the essence of my little boy! Jessie was so patient with us and my son.  Our photos are always worth the wait and highly recommended photographer!"

my client closet 

All of my sessions include use of my client closet. There are no additional charges, it's just a little something to help make your experience easier and more enjoyable.

This is my passion and I have invested so much into finding and purchasing specialty items to add to my collection, making your session with me as smooth and stress free as possible. Not having to find or purchase something to wear makes it so much more enjoyable for everyone. I am here to style your family and help you select what works best with colours and sizes. I strongly recommend utilising my client closet, as each piece is carefully selected to enhance the style of family photography I offer.

You are welcome to come to my studio and browse through and try on as many items as you'd like prior to any booked session. I'm working on adding menswear to my collection... once I stop buying ALL THE DRESSES!
 

Eeeeeek you've found my favourite part...


After your enquiry, you will receive my welcome guide and will be able to scroll through my entire client closet to choose a favorite. 

Once you have paid a deposit to secure your session date, you are welcome to make an appointment and come on over to my home studio to browse my collection and try on as many outfits as you'd like. After you've selected what you'd like to use for your session, I'll make note and bring them with me on the day. We will arrange to start your session a little earlier to give you time to change, and then once finished, I just take them home with me and that's it!
