Adelaide Newborn & Maternity Photographer

I am always so inspired and love to create memorable portraits for my clients… Vanessa totally embraced her session and we were able to do something a little different that included some pretty flowers! This set-up is not something that I have ever done but the end result is amazing!

The Client Experience

How has your experience been with JC imagery and would you recommend Jodi to friends? The experience was amazing. I had so much fun and felt so comfortable. Jodi made me feel so beautiful and confident and I think that shows through the pictures.

How did Jodi make you feel throughout the booking process and during your shoot?
Jodi was very friendly and made me feel at ease with the booking process. All questions were answered with a quick response.

Our Story

Is there a story surrounding your pregnancy? Has it been a breeze or has your little one made you work for it? We ended up trying for a year and a half. She sure made us work for it. But timing ended up being perfect. We just moved into our new home and are more than ready for her now!

Have you found out whether you are having a boy or a girl? Or is it a total surprise? Yes we’re having a little girl!!

Preparation…

Tell me your favourite stores that you are obsessed with for maternity wear… I have bought a few items from ‘Ripe‘ (located in Myer) Adelaide. And a couple dresses from ‘Boohoo‘.

Have you started to prepare the baby’s nursery or are you going to wing it last minute? Yes we started as soon as we moved in our new home which was a month ago. We are feeling nice and settled now and can’t wait for her arrival.

Tips

Do you have any tips for expecting mums? Enjoy every moment. It goes so quickly. And make sure you take lots of progress pics. They’re so good to look back on.

Marley | 8 days…

This little cherub had me melting sooo bad! I just had to share a couple of my personal favourites and her beautiful mumma’s experience. If you’ve been considering a newborn session, please get in contact soon to reserve your tentative due date. Bookings are limited so click here 🙂


The Client Experience

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

Our whole experience was incredible from start to finish. It was lovely to know Marley was safe and in very capable hands with Jodi, but also that I was also able to be comfortable in her professional environment. I felt understood and relaxed during what was a challenging time, as most postpartum women will agree.

Highlights

What was the highlight of your session?

Watching my partner interact with Jodi and Marley to set up the shoots. It was my first time since she was born I really could sit and watch without worrying or fussing… The part where Marley also wee’d on Jodi made me laugh too!

Our Story

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

Asides from some controlled hypertension, in hindsight it was pretty breezy after the all day sickness dropped off 2nd tri.. I carried her fairly well, didn’t swell or blow up, had attainable cravings of hot chips, honey in sourdough toast.. and organic royal gala apples, but I’d only eat them from one grower only.. many other apples went into the bin with one bite taken out.

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

We found out at 20w scan.. We were so sure it was a boy though we got them to double check on the day and then triple check again at 28w…

Baby Name

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 thrown a few names around but at the scan when we found out it was a girl, I just looked at my fiance and said “Marley” and he immediately agreed. We called her The Punisher while she was in the womb.. not for sinister reasons though. We’d just finished watching it on Netflix and one of her scan images of her skull looked like his logo/emblem thing. So we went with that.

Preparation

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

You can’t go past ‘Kmart’ and ‘Best & Less’.. and ‘Aldi’ when it’s baby week.. then online for girls there is: ‘Little Eedie Boutique‘, ‘Bubs Warehouse‘, ‘CMC Gold‘, ‘Mae & Rae‘, ‘Lulu & Milly, ‘Arrabella Rose’, ‘Tutuirresistable’… Also, ‘Bonds‘ wonsersuits are the best too.

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

We started at 20w, but it wasn’t 100% done till I went on my mat leave at 35w and had time to nest.

Tips & Tricks

Do you have any tips for expecting mums?

Enjoy your pregnancy. It sounds silly to some but it is a wonderful experience, I miss laying down at night and feeling her kick and roll around.

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

It’s okay to cry, take plenty of photos and remember you can never spoil a newborn. Hold them, kiss them and take in the amazing smell that is baby breath!

Danielle | 36 weeks

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…

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!

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 Jess… This mum-to-be totally embraced her pregnancy and we had so much fun working together! We used a couple of different colours of pure silk during her session for variety and to capture her amazing bump!

Our photography sessions are slow paced and held indoors in my beautifully lit studio where you can relax and pamper yourself before your new addition arrives…

I hope you enjoy looking through a few of my favourites from our session and if you would like more information, please click HERE. Otherwise feel free to check out our FACEBOOK page to view more of our work.

I would absolutely love to hear from you to discuss your personalised photography session! Jodi x


Client Experience

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

This is my second time with Jodi and she was just as amazing as the first photo shoot. Highly recommend her!

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

Jodi is so professional, happy and just makes you feel very comfortable (as we all know photos can be a bit daunting)!

Is there a story surrounding your pregnancy? Has it been a breeze or has your little one made you work for it?

Being 38wks now, this babe is giving me a lot of kicks to ribs and a bit uncomfortable, but a pretty good pregnancy.

Have you found out whether you are having a boy or a girl? Or is it a total surprise?

Yes, my partner and I know. But shhh… It’s a secret for everyone else! 🙂

Tell me your favourite stores that you are obsessed with for maternity wear.

I found that in summer, I could wear a lot normal woman’s clothes- summer dresses were the best. Winter is harder and when you are just about to pop I don’t want to buy too much. So Kmart & Cotton On have been my favourite.

Have you started to prepare the baby’s nursery or are you going to wing it last minute?

Yes! We are all done, now we just need our bubba!

Do you have any tips for expecting mums?

It’s such an amazing/crazy experience, so enjoy it all, even the days where you’re sick… Your body is changing…it’s pretty amazing that you have a little mini you growing inside!
