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

If you are considering a maternity and newborn photography experience, please get in touch soon as 2018 bookings are extremely limited. Just fill out your details on my contact page (click here) and I will be in touch soon!


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!

Highlights…

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!

Our story

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!!

The details

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”.

Preparation

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.

Tips

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!

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!

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).

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.

The client experience

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

Excellent! Yes – we have told all of our friends and anyone who has commented on our photos. Jodi made us feel amazing – at ease, comfortable and relaxed. We had a lot of laughs during the shoot – at everyone’s expense! Haha

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

Our baby girl was the boss from day 1. My partner Jason knew that I was pregnant before the test was positive. I was terribly sick for the first 5 months – which didn’t completely disappear through the remainder of the pregnancy. I could eat something one day then not be able to stomach it the next. I also had really swollen feet and hands! 

About

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

Total surprise! We found out when she was lifted up onto me – Jason had a hunch that she was a girl all along… My mum thought I was having a boy but changed her mind later on in the pregnancy. 

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)?

‘Bubs’ and ‘little one’ was used while Tilly was in the womb… We chose two names; one for a boy and one for a girl… When our baby girl arrived, I really liked the name Tilly and so did Jason so that is what we went with!

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

We just did bits and bobs throughout the pregnancy. The cot arrived after the birth of Tilly so we put that together on the first night we arrived home so we are still working on the nursery.

Advice

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

I barely did any shopping at all! Everything was gifted, both new and second-hand (I personally love how soft the second-hand clothes are). I bought all the necessary items such as our cot, drawers, breast pump, bottles etc at Baby Bunting.

Do you have any tips for expecting mums?

Relax! Trust your partner and midwives to look after you. Make sure you rest, sleep and slow down especially during those last few weeks before baby arrives. Also, enjoy your bump! Your plans most likely won’t go to plan so just roll with it. Freezer meals are great to prepare in advance!

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

Take photos! They won’t be clear memories, only flashes. Watch your bub and learn their cues. Listen to everyone’s advice and take back what works for you. Ignore the messy house; sit with your baby, take it all in and be kind to yourself! Your partner and baby are learning too so be kind and be a team! When your baby is upset, remember the 4xB’s; 1. Booby/bottle – are they hungry? 2. Bum – do they have a dirty nappy? 3. Body – Give them lots of cuddles and skin-skin contact. 4. Bed – are they tired?

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!
