Newborn Photographer North Adelaide
I love that all babies are different during their session 🙂 Griffin was quite active and had lots of awake time during his shoot so after we captured some adorable eye contact, I wrapped him up nice and secure and rocked him gently so that we could get some sleepy shots that were requested. His stunning mumma Abbey came in whilst pregnant with Griffin so that I could capture her bump before his arrival also so it was amazing to have her back in <3

The Client Experience
How has your experience been with JC imagery and how did Jodi make you feel? Our experience with Jodi was lovely! Not only was she very accommodating and patient with our little one, but her professionalism and photography skills are superb!
Why did you choose JC imagery? Jodi did such an amazing job with my maternity photos that I couldn’t resist bringing my bubba in to see her once he arrived. Her props and little outfits are super cute too!
What was the highlight of your session? The highlight of the session was watching my son and his daddy have their photos taken together… the two people I love most in this world.. these photos I will treasure!
Is there a story surrounding your pregnancy? Was it a breeze or did you little one make you work for it? My pregnancy with Griffin went very smoothly up until the last few weeks… He was super comfy in my tummy and decided that he wanted to stay in there as long as possible, not coming earthside until after 42 weeks! Despite my eagerness to meet him and my desire to have my body back, he was sooo worth the wait!!
Did you find out whether you were having a boy or a girl? Or do you love a surprise? We found out we were having a little boy when I was 11 weeks pregnant through the Harmony NeoNatal test which examines the baby’s chromosomes. Daddy wanted to wait and have it be a surprise but I couldn’t resist!
How did you go choosing your baby’s name? After months of not agreeing on any names Darren and I eventually came across “Griffin” in a baby name book.. We wanted a name that was both masculine and unique and decided it was meant to be. Griffin’s middle name “Beau” he shares with his big brother “Liam Beau”.
What are your favourite baby stores? I decided while pregnant that I wanted to buy as many Australian made, organic and eco friendly baby products as I could find. My favourite stores were ‘Owl Baby‘ and ‘Rainbow Tree‘. In Adelaide there are also ‘Magic Circle‘, ‘David Jones‘ and of course ‘Baby Bunting‘.
Did you prepare the nursery in advance or wing it last minute? By 25 weeks Griffin’s nursery was pretty much complete which allowed me to focus on resting for the remainder of my pregnancy.
Do you have any tips for expecting mums? The only advice I can share for expecting mumma’s that I found beneficial was to see a chriopractor in the last few weeks of my pregnancy. Mine was a godsend, relieving my sciatica almost instantly.
Do you have any tips and tricks for parents adjusting to parenthood in those early days? Ensure you have precooked meals in the freezer for easy lunches and dinners after bubs arrives and don’t forget to sleep when the baby sleeps!
