The best part about being a photographer is receiving feedback from clients about how you made them feel during their shoot and once they view their portraits… This beautiful woman wasn’t confident prior to her session at all but is now incredibly happy to have had her maternity shoot so that these memories can be remembered… I love to find out what you do and don’t like so that we can create something that you love!

If you have any questions, click here, I would love to hear them and chat further about your maternity photography experience. What better way to pamper yourself before bub arrives! Jodi x


The Client Experience

How has your experience been with JC imagery and would you recommend Jodi to friends? My experience has been excellent from start to finish, I would definitely recommend Jodi to friends and family!

How did Jodi make you feel throughout the booking process and during your shoot? She made me feel so comfortable and confident in my own skin.

My Story

Is there a story surrounding your pregnancy? Has it been a breeze or has your little one made you work for it? I have been very lucky to not have any complications throughout my pregnancy, although I have had nausea all way through and low blood pressure towards the end. During my shoot, because of my low blood pressure, I had to sit down towards the end for a few minutes. Jodi was so patient and looked after me well, ensuring I felt ok again to get back up and finish the session.

Have you found out whether you are having a boy or a girl? Or is it a total surprise? It is my first baby so we have decided on having a surprise!

Preparation

Tell me your favourite stores that you are obsessed with for maternity wear… I love ‘Pea in a pod Maternity‘, it is where I got my baby shower dress from! And ‘BAE the label‘ also has some beautiful maternity and nursing wear.

Have you started to prepare the baby’s nursery or are you going to wing it last minute? The nursery is just about ready, just need to put a few shelves up and add a bit of pink or blue when bub arrives!

Tips

Do you have any tips for expecting mums? If you are unsure whether you want to do a maternity shoot because you aren’t feeling super confident in your own skin, have trust in Jodi and just do it! This is how I felt initially but now I am so glad that I ended up doing this shoot with the lovely and talented Jodi! She will make you feel super comfortable and produce some beautiful photos for you to look back on forever…

Meet Evaliah… What an absolutely gorgeous baby, I couldn’t get enough of her beautiful strawberry hair and button nose. She was an absolute angel during her session so we were able to get such amazing portraits for her family to remember…


The Client Experience

How has your experience been with JC imagery and how did Jodi make you feel?
Our experience with JC imagery was more than we could’ve ever asked for! Going into my maternity shoot I was extremely nervous and wasn’t really sure what to expect, but by the end of it, I walked away with some amazing photos that I thought I would’ve never been able to achieve, let alone feel comfortable in doing so. Then when we returned with our little girl I was so comfortable with handing her over. Jodi is such a lovely and genuine person, it definitely shows that she is passionate about her job.

Highlights

What was the highlight of your maternity and newborn session?
The highlight of my maternity shoot was definitely when my partner was helping with the silk flick in a couple of my photos. He just couldn’t quite master it but in the end we got an amazing photo. I loved how Jodi included my partner in the session. As for the newborn session, the highlight was just watching Jodi work. It was incredible to watch how Jodi would calm Evaliah down, ready for each setup. We had full confidence throughout the whole shoot and we even managed to get a, extra prop while bub slept.

Why did you choose JC Imagery to capture this special time?
I stumbled across JC imagery in my search through Instagram for a newborn/maternity photographer in Adelaide. I instantly fell in love with her work! She is so flexible and offers high-quality photographs, which was exactly what we were after.

Our Story…

Is there a story surrounding your pregnancy? Was it a breeze or did your little one make you work for it? Little-miss definitely made me work for it!! Got stuck with the horrid Hyperemesis Gravidarum… 🙁

Did you find out whether you were having a boy or a girl? Or was it a total surprise?
We found out at our 18-week scan. We had planned to find out at a gender reveal that we were going to have but the suspense was too much! As soon as the sonographer asked if we wanted to know we both jumped at the opportunity.

Decisions

How did you come up with your baby’s name? And did you have other names that you used while your new baby was still in the womb)?
Before we found out that we were having a girl, we would refer to her as ‘jellybean’. Then from probably 26 weeks onwards, we fell in love with the name Evaliah. We just stumbled across it one day after tossing a few different variations around. I loved the name Evie, but my partner wasn’t set on it so we decided on Evaliah. Evie for a nickname.

Preparation

What are your favourite stores that you are obsessed with shopping at…
I’m sure that I’m not the only one but I’m totally obsessed with all things ‘Kmart!’ There’s an online store called ‘Little Eedie and they have some adorable clothing! Baby Bunting also have some incredible items and some amazing nursery furniture.

How far in advance did you prepare the nursery? Or did you wing it last minute?
We moved down from Cairns when I was 32 weeks pregnant and had ordered all our nursery furniture from an online store. The room was ready and set up only a few weeks before Evaliah arrived.

Tips

Do you have any tips for expecting mums?
The only tip that I can really give is, is to be completely open-minded. Don’t go into parenthood expecting to have everything done perfectly and to know what you’re doing. Have an open mind about the birth as well because literally, anything can happen. I was terrified of becoming a Mum with fear of failing and not being good enough but now I am absolutely loving it! Just take each day as it comes and every minute while your baby is little, it doesn’t last for long.

Helpful tricks

Do you have any tips and tricks for parents adjusting to parenthood in those early days?
Definitely try and get a bassinet with wheels on it! After leaving the hospital and coming home I actually got my dad to attach a set of wheels to my bassinet… Stock your freezer up with frozen meals! This has been a life saver for my partner and I. Those nights where you are over exhausted and just can’t be bothered cooking are the perfect nights to just pull out a frozen home-cooked meal!

I have put together a short slideshow to display some images captured during a newborn session. Each experience is calm and relaxed so you can sit back and enjoy the moment while we create lifelong memories and beautiful pieces of art…

Newborns grow and change so much over those first few weeks so I feel that it is incredibly important to take this moment and freeze it in time. Many new parents have told me that they can barely remember all the details because so much happens & so much doesn’t (like a good nights sleep)! I guarantee that you will cherish each image more than you could ever imagine.

Safety is key!

I know that there would be nothing more daunting to hand your new baby over to a complete stranger but please know, I am a trained professional. I understand the techniques necessary to pose safely, how to identify potential risks and how to avoid them.
During your experience, I promise to ensure that your little one is kept warm, comfortable and content in the studio at all times and will take extra care when positioning them (safety is key)! All products used also, are carefully washed/cleaned thoroughly to ensure a hygienic and germ-free environment. This is why I am also fully-vaccinated.

What to do next?

I love to meet all my newborn clients for a complimentary consultation prior to the birth of their new addition, that way we can get to know each other and take the stress out of organising your session. I believe that during this time, it is necessary to make the process nice and easy and we get to arrange all the beautiful little details in person.
If this is something you would love to arrange with me or you are after more information about our packages and collections, please click here and I will contact you as soon as possible.
Thank you so much and I look forward to hearing from you!

The Experience

How has your experience been with JC imagery and how did Jodi make you feel? 

The moment Jodi opened up the door to her home studio I felt incredibly welcomed and comfortable. Jodi not only demonstrated high professionalism but was wonderfully friendly, calm and patient during our newborn session. She’s got an eye for detail and beautiful taste in all her props and accessories. The entire experience was perfect and faultless. I am so happy with the end result and will cherish the photos Jodi took forever. Thank you so much Jodi, I will be a returning customer and highly recommend JC Imagery to everyone.

What was the highlight of your session? 

When Jodi had my son in the wood log pose. He looked so peaceful and picture perfect, I watched over him with such pride. I was completely blown away by how amazing Jodi made the setting look. It was my favourite photo of the day.

Our Story

Is there a story surrounding your pregnancy? Was it a breeze or did your little one make you work for it? 

Aside from extremely bad reflux, it was a fairly easy-going pregnancy.

How did you find out whether you were having a boy or a girl? Or was it a total surprise?

It was supposed to be a surprise but on our 17-week ultrasound the sonographer slipped up!

How did you come up with your baby’s name? And did you have other names that you used while your new baby was still in the womb)?

Early on we discussed baby names together and both came across the name Flynn. We loved it and it stuck!

Advice

Tell me your favourite stores that you are obsessed with shopping at (this may help other parents prepare for their new miracle).

Daisy and Hen
Wilson and Frenchy
Pure Baby
Little Fawn Boutique

How far in advance did you prepare the nursery? Or did you wing it last minute?
We moved house the following week after Flynn’s birth. The nursery was completely last minute, but I was very prepared for buying everything he needed before he arrived.

Do you have any tips for expecting mums?
Download BabyCenter and Ovia Pregnancy on your mobile. Both apps I found really helpful during my pregnancy. It also gives you the opportunity to talk to other expecting mums.

Tips & Tricks

Do you have any tips and tricks for parents adjusting to parenthood in those early days?

Sleep when the baby sleeps, housework can wait.
Ask for help and accept it.
Follow your heart, not advice. Mother’s instinct is best.
Don’t compare yourself to others.
Be kind to yourself.

I first met Jaimee for her maternity session and she had this amazing glow! Her maternity session made her feel beautiful and was the perfect opportunity for her to relax and in the studio prior to the birth of her new addition, Lucas… I felt so much love and connection between this beautiful family and honestly could not wait to share some images from each session with you.

Enjoy their gallery and if you would love something like this for yourself, I would love to hear from you so feel free to connect and let me know what exactly you’re looking for! Jodi x


Client experience

How has your experience been with JC imagery and how did Jodi make you feel?

Jodi is very professional, friendly and warm. She ensures you and your Bub are relaxed and comfortable throughout the shoot. She is excellent at communicating the processes and makes sure you don’t leave with questions unanswered. 

What was the highlight of your session?

How relaxed and comfortable Jodi made me feel during the maternity shoot. I was hesitant to show my belly, but Jodi made me feel beautiful and empowered. Our highlight for the newborn shoot was how passionate and professional Jodi was about newborns. She took everything in her step and nothing was too much for her.

Why did you choose JC Imagery?

A friend recommended Jodi to. She had amazing shots of her son done with Jodi and loved the experience and end product. I would definitely recommend JC Imagery to anyone and everyone!!

Our story

Is there a story surrounding your pregnancy? Was it a breeze or did your little one make you work for it?

My pregnancy with Lucas was a breeze! No morning sickness, no headaches, no aches, no pains.

Did you find out whether you were having a boy or a girl? Or was it a total surprise?

We left it a surprise. Then once he was born, my partner Shane informed all present in the birth suite that Lucas was a boy. It was a special moment for him during the birth process, he was so chuffed!

When did you come up with your baby’s name? And did you have other names that you used while your new baby was still in the womb?

Shane and I have been set on “Lucas Jack” for approx 8 years. We think it is a strong, not heard of too often name, that suits all ages. When Lucas was in the womb, we called him “Nugget” because on the first scan we had done, he looked like a chicken nugget!

Preparation

Tell me your favourite stores that you are obsessed with shopping at (this may help other parents prepare for their new miracle).

We didn’t buy any designer clothes etc because they grow so quickly when they are newborns. We got our nursery furniture from ‘Mocka Australia‘ and would recommend them – quick delivery and quality products. And our pram is a ‘Redsbaby‘. I bought this without seeing one in the flesh and would do it again. Very well made, nice details and affordable.

The nursery – How far in advance did you prepare? Or did you just wing it last minute?

Shane didn’t want to “jinx” the pregnancy, so we didn’t buy anything until we were at least 7 months in. Then I had everything set up and ready to go by 8 months because I was so excited!

Tips and tricks

Do you have any tips for expecting mums?

Just go with the flow! Try to take everything as it comes, don’t sweat the small stuff and live in the moment. Numerous people throughout my pregnancy told me to be relaxed and calm. I feel this helped the pregnancy to be a breeze and the labour to go off without any issues. I just went with the flow. Also, sometimes I feel it is best not having a “set in stone” birth plan. They often never go to plan so don’t set yourself up for failure. 

What advice do you have for parents adjusting to parenthood in those early days?

I would recommend that new parents remain calm and relaxed (I know it sounds hard) but Bub will pick up when you’re distressed, upset, stressed and overwhelmed and they will then mimic this. If you go with the flow, remain calm and do what you can when you can, you’ll be fine. And sleep whenever you can!! You never know when your Bub will want to cluster feed and you won’t be able to leave the lounge/feeding chair for hours.

Meet baby Georgia! If you love the fair skin and strawberry hair, you are going to love this little angel! I had such an amazing time with Georgia and her beautiful family, I really couldn’t wait to share some images from her gallery with you! I met Sam and Brenton prior to Georgia’s arrival at their complimentary pre-session consultation. It was the perfect opportunity to get to know each other and they could design their session in person. It really takes the stress out of the preparation and gives you the opportunity to ask questions which gives you peace of mind!… I’m all for making the process nice and easy! If you would like to make a booking and meet prior to your session, I would love to hear from you! Just send me a message by clicking here! Jodi x


Client Experience

How has your experience been with JC imagery and how did Jodi make you feel?

Our experience with JC imagery was brilliant, my little girl was not playing ball on the first session so Jodi offered for a second session the following day to try and capture the perfect photo with no added cost. Jodi made Myself, Partner and Baby Girl feel at home and welcome.

What was the highlight of your session?

 The highlight of the session would be feeling relaxed and also confident in what Jodi was capturing and knowing that she was on the same creative page as I was with setting scenes for my baby girl.

Why did you choose JC Imagery?

When looking through JC Imagery’s gallery I could connect with her images; her colour tones, the particular style of each shoot was unique and I could relate to her photo’s.

Our Story

Is there a story surrounding your pregnancy? Was it a breeze or did your little one make you work for it?

My pregnancy story is pretty standard with no complications or crazy cravings. I could only eat crackers with vegemite and cheese for the first few months and the thought of steamed Veg made me instantly sick… Other than that it was a pretty smooth 40 weeks!

How did you find out whether you were having a boy or a girl? Or was it a total surprise?

During our 20-week scan was when we found out that we were having a girl 🙂

How did you come up with your baby’s name? And did you have other names that you used while your new baby was still in the womb)?

We had a list of names for most of the pregnancy, however, the list was not getting any shorter. It wasn’t until early morning hours after our baby girl was born that we decided on the name Georgia Elieen. Elieen was my late Nan’s name so in honour of this amazing woman I wanted my first baby to have her name as her middle name.

Tell me your favourite stores that you are obsessed with shopping at (this may help other parents prepare for their new miracle).

This would have to be Bonds, you cant go wrong with this store and BONUS – they have after pay!

How far in advance did you prepare the nursery? Or did you wing it last minute?

We were still not living in a house until a week before I gave birth, so the nursery was put together while heavily pregnant and it was all hands on deck!

Tips

Do you have any tips for expecting mums?

Honestly, listen to your own instincts and when people (and they will!) give you advice just take what you need from it, but try to feel confident that you will know what to do and what not do when your baby is born.  You’ve got this!

Do you have any tips and tricks for parents adjusting to parenthood in those early days?

Have no expectations, no one baby is the same and no day is the same as other, what might have worked today or yesterday may not work tomorrow. When help is offered whether it be a meal cooked for you, a load of washing done or an offer to hold your baby while you have a shower, coffee or eat- just say YES!!

We had so much fun together while creating their new portraits. I hope you love looking through our favourites from the newborn session and if you have any questions regarding the services we have available, please contact me here 🙂 Jodi x


How has your experience been with JC imagery and would you recommend Jodi to friends?

Our experience with JC Imagery was amazing! From the very start, I felt comfortable with Jodi as she is so easy going, approachable and friendly. She made our sessions enjoyable and easy! I would highly recommend Jodi to other people without any hesitation and have been doing so already!

How did you feel about finding a photographer and how did Jodi make you feel?

I like to research everything I do, and after looking through the Albury Wodonga region for a photographer I felt very happy with my decision to go with Jodi. I felt 100% comfortable with her.

Is there a story surrounding your pregnancy? Was it a breeze or did your little one make you work for it?
I certainly could tell a story about this pregnancy. After 6 months of trying for our second baby I went to the doctor for a general checkup, and basically, it all started from there. I was sent for an ultrasound, which showed up my previous caesarean scar was widened, thin and weak. I was booked in to have surgery to fix the scar and told to stop trying for a baby as my uterus may rupture, however in this 2 week time period, I had fallen pregnant. So as you could imagine I was beside myself with worry, and uncertainty of being able to keep this baby. A much-wanted baby! From there we had scan after scan after scan (22 in total to be exact) to determine whether we would be able to keep it. Then told by one Obstetrician that we should terminate the pregnancy. Unhappy and devastated with that opinion, we sought a second opinion. To then we were referred to Melbourne. At this stage, we were 13 weeks along when Melbourne finally were confident in saying that we could go ahead with the pregnancy. However, it was high risk and further scans and monitoring were necessary. At each scan thereafter things seemed to be going well. We were advised that I could not go into labour as this would risk uterine rupture and that a caesarean would be needed at 35/36 weeks. As a result, this was a very stressful pregnancy which still came with all of the typical pregnancy symptoms; all day sickness, nose bleeds, heartburn to name a few. It was hard to enjoy this pregnancy as we were so uncertain of the outcome. Finally comes 36 weeks, and delivery day. I was so scared and nervous as to what was going to happen, and if the baby would need any assistance when delivered. But we can thankfully say that baby come out screaming, lungs working fine, and no assistance needed. We were so happy to meet our beautiful baby GIRL!!

How did you find out whether you were having a boy or a girl? Or was it a total surprise?

After a total of 22 scans, we decided not to find out the sex of the baby. I felt like I needed a good surprise after all of the stress, and I’m so glad as it was the best surprise ever!! A little sister to our other daughter!

How did you come up with your baby’s name? And did you have other names that you used while your new baby was still in the womb)?

This was extremely difficult. We had approx 20 girls names that we liked but could not agree on any!! Our baby girl went without a name for 4 days, until we finally decided on ‘Lily Belle’. I also wanted a flower as part of her name, as my first daughter is ‘Indi Rose’, so this just seemed fitting.

If you have other children, how did they feel about becoming a big brother/sister?

Our first born Indi was adamant we were going to have a girl and its name would be ‘Hayley’. We discussed the possibility that baby might be a boy, but she did not want a bar of it. We were a little concerned that if we did have a boy that she wasn’t going to be impressed at all. BUT, we had a girl and Indi was just over the moon, Her first reaction was priceless, she is so in love with her baby sister!

Tell me your favourite stores that you are obsessed with shopping at (this may help other parents prepare for their new miracle).

I love Baby Bunting, Baby Nest & Okes

How far in advance did you prepare the nursery? Or did you wing it last minute?

Second baby; it was completed about 2 days before delivery. First baby; ready and decorated beautifully months in advance. We were a lot busier this time around and not as much time to spend on setting up the nursery but we got there in the end.

Do you have any tips for expecting mums?

Enjoy the ride as much as possible because it goes very quickly and they do not stay little for very long.

Do you have any tips and tricks for parents adjusting to parenthood in those early days?

To be honest, I’m remembering it all over again, just go with the flow and things eventually become easier. Get sleep when you can. It’s hard work but totally worth it.
