About the Photographer

My name is Beck, and I would love to tell YOUR story.

I am a portrait and lifestyle photographer, based in the south of Adelaide, specialising in maternity, birth, newborn, milestone, and family photography.  My greatest love in life is to capture stories.  Those precious and candid moments between loved ones.  The anticipation of a new arrival, the moment of birth, the early days with your newborn, the milestones of your growing baby, the love and connection between the members of your family, and each of your unique personalities.

I love nothing more than to be welcomed into the family home, to capture you just exactly as you are.  The raw, real, true essence of who YOU are as a family.  YOUR story.  After all, it is completely unique to you.  And worth telling.  For your family and friends now, and for generations to come.

Your photographic session with me will be relaxed and fun.  I have been blessed with a big heart and a lot of patience, and love nothing more than the hustle and bustle of normal everyday family life.  I have four of my own children, ranging from toddler to teen, so there’s not much left to surprise me when it comes to children and their ways.  With me, you can all relax and be yourselves.  Because that’s exactly what I love to capture.

I work with you to find the best natural light around your home, to produce beautiful gentle images of you and your family.  Your home does not need to be a mansion, or look like a hotel room inside.  I have not yet come across a home in which I could not take photographs.  All it takes is a bit of know-how, the right equipment, and beautiful light.  The images I lovingly produce for you will be natural and beautiful, enhanced just enough to bring out the beauty and essence of the moment.  And together we can find the best way to turn those images into beautiful heirlooms, that will be treasured by your family forever.

Let me tell YOUR story.

Newborns

Choosing to have newborn portraits taken is a very special decision. It means that you are choosing to capture this extremely important stage in the life of your growing family. Your precious little newborn baby, and the new connections you are all making with your new little family member.

At RJN Photography, the whole family is included in the newborn portrait session. The parents and siblings alike are encouraged to cuddle and interact with the baby, to capture all of those beautiful connections between you. And of course, images of the baby on their own are captured too, and all of those little details that change so quickly as they grow. The first month of the baby’s life is the best time for their newborn shoot. Before they grow and change too much.

You will have the choice of either a studio or in-home newborn session with RJN Photography.  My natural light studio is located in Christies Beach, and is a lovely simple backdrop for your newborn portrait session.  Or, you can remain in the comfort of your own home, and allow me to come to you.  The choice is yours.

Contact me to discuss your newborn photography requirements.

Births

Booking a birth photographer is a big decision, just like choosing a wedding photographer.

The birth of your child is one day in your lifetime, and includes many precious moments that cannot be repeated or recreated.  That’s why you want to choose someone who you feel you can relate to and trust.  And someone that you know has the experience to capture those precious moments.

I have captured a range of different kinds of births, including home birth, hospital birth, and c-section.  Every birth is beautiful and unique, and every birth tells a beautiful story.  From the early stages of labour, through to that incredible moment when you hold your baby in your arms for the first time, to those early cuddles and getting-to-know-you moments of your baby’s first couple of hours of life.  I love to capture that amazing story.

I always meet with my birth clients face-to-face, as I think it’s really important for you to know if we are a “good fit” for each other.  Birth is such a personal thing, and it’s important for you to get along with the person that is capturing it for you.  You don’t want someone attending your birth if you clash with their personality!  Also, at that first meeting we can discuss what you have in mind for me to capture, and I can get to know more about you.  I will only photograph what you want captured.  It is completely up to you.  I prefer to meet your partner before-hand as well, so all of my birth clients get a complimentary maternity session.  That way I get to meet the rest of your family :-).

After your big day you will receive a beautifully presented USB stick with your beautiful birth images.  The number of images I take varies greatly from birth to birth, but I try to select the images that best tell the story of the day, and I edit those beautifully for you.  Due to the sensitive nature of birth images, you will have complete ownership of them.  I will, only with your direct permission, share some of the images on my website and social media.  But if this is not OK with you, that’s perfectly fine also.

It’s a big commitment, and I understand that.  I am more than happy to package together maternity, birth, and newborn sessions.  And payment plans are also negotiable.

Fresh48

If you don’t think birth photography is for you, but you would like your little one captured when they are absolutely brand new, a Fresh48 session would be ideal.

These sessions are done within the first 48 hours after your baby’s birth, hence the name Fresh48.  Usually this kind of session is done at the hospital, but with so many people going home quite early these days it can be in the family home if you choose.

These sessions are perfect for capturing those very early special moments with your newborn.  It could be your older children meeting their baby sibling for the first time, or extended family meeting the baby.  It could be timed so that we capture the first bath, or even baby coming home from hospital.  It’s up to you!

I will be on-call to attend to you within forty eight hours of your baby’s birth, so it often helps if you let me know when you go into labour so I can be prepared.  And we can discuss beforehand your hopes for how the session will go, so that the images will uniquely capture your little one’s arrival.

Contact me to discuss your birth photography or Fresh48 needs today.
