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!

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!

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!!

Olivia | Award Winning Newborn Photographer Adelaide

Olivia | Award Winning Newborn Photographer Adelaide

Olivia is just incredible and was such a dream to work with! I loved her beautiful little face and olive skin so much that I submitted this image to the AFNS AWARD which is an International Competition for Photographers in the field of Newborn & Maternity photography.

I received a notification shortly after to say that I have WON 1st place! I am still in shock and so humbled that my artwork was chosen by an expert jury!

I made this submission for personal growth with no expectation to actually win so this has definitely made my day!

To every single one of you that have chosen me to photograph your beautiful baby, I definitely wouldn’t have these amazing opportunities without you so THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart! x

Enjoy a few of my favourites from her gallery! Hope you love them! If you would love to see more from our portfolio, please click here.

For bookings & enquiries please connect with me… I would love to chat further in regards to your personalised photography session! x


Client Experience

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

Fantastic! Yes I would!

What was the highlight of your photography session with JC imagery?

Seeing my baby girl posed in the beautiful props – she looked so cute in all of them!

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

It was a breeze to begin with but became very difficult more towards the end of the last trimester.

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

We couldn’t wait so we found out what we were having at the 20-week ultrasound!

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 have always loved the names Olivia and Mahlia, but once she arrived, Olivia seemed to suit so we stuck with that.

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

We also have a little boy and he is almost 2 years old. He absolutely loves Olivia and always wants to hold her!

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

We prepared it in advance, it was a very slow process… Haha

Do you have any tips for expecting mums?

Get as much sleep as you can, no matter what time of day!

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

Sleep when your baby sleeps (if you don’t have other children), enjoy every moment and just do what works for you and your new baby!

Handsome little Noah… You blew me away with your adorable personality! He definitely knew what he wanted so we went with it! Over the moon with what we captured during his session… Here are some of my personal favourites…

Enjoy, Jodi x

The client Experience

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

My experience has been nothing short of amazing! Jodi has been so lovely throughout the whole process. I felt 100% comfortable handing little Noah over to her as it was so clear how caring she was. Throughout the shoot, she was so good with him and was amazing at settling him.

He’s quite a fussy baby so I was a little worried how the shoot would go, but with Jodi, he behaved so well! Definitely the baby whisperer. I’d definitely recommend her to anyone!

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

A friend tagged me in a post on Jodi’s Facebook page. I was absolutely over the moon when Jodi contacted me as we had been unable to organise a photographer before our baby Noah was born. If it weren’t for her, we wouldn’t have gotten those precious photos! Jodi definitely is the best of both worlds as her photos are absolutely spectacular and her packages were exactly what we were looking for. I am so grateful to have found her as we would have missed out on capturing those photos if it weren’t for her.

My Story

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

I definitely did not have a smooth pregnancy! I didn’t have any major complications (luckily) but I was experiencing false contractions (Braxton Hicks) since about 18 weeks. It was definitely hard as being my first pregnancy, I had no idea how to tell the difference between those and real contractions.

Towards the end, I was at the hospital almost every week absolutely convinced I was in labour only to be told that I wasn’t! It wasn’t until my waters broke one night that I finally knew it was actually happening. Noah was also a very active baby- he kicked so hard that I actually had bruises on the outside of my stomach! He didn’t make it easy for me that’s for sure.

Highlights…

What was your favourite moment/highlight of your session?

My biggest surprise was how calm Noah was. The entire room was set up to make him comfortable – a fan heater, a shoosher machine and a heartbeat playing over the speakers. Noah absolutely hates being naked but Jodi had a way of keeping him settled. I actually went out and bought a fan heater which I turn on when I change his nappy and it calms him right down!

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

We found out we were having a boy at our 20-week scan. We are both quite impatient so couldn’t wait until he was born to find out!

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

Throughout the pregnancy, whenever I heard a name I liked, I saved it on a list on my phone and then would go through it with my partner. Any names that my partner didn’t like got deleted from the list and any names that he suggested that I liked got added in. It was a very short list by the end- we definitely did not agree on many names! My family nicknamed him “Froggy” as in my 12-week scan, his legs looked like little frog legs. After he started kicking me non stop, the nickname definitely fit!

Shopping…

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

My one stop shop has been Baby Bunting for all the essentials. For clothes, I love the Bonds zippy suits. They’re so easy to dress him in, great quality and Bonds often have 40% off sales so anytime that happened, I just bought up big.

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

We started buying things at about the 12-week mark and just got everything bit by bit instead of all at once. We had the nursery fully set up by about 35 weeks. After Noah was born, we realised there was plenty that we forgot to buy though. I think that’s a good way to do it though- instead of buying too much and having things go to waste, it’s easy enough to send your partner out afterwards to get anything you may have forgotten.

Tips!

Do you have any tips for expecting mums?

Don’t just focus on what you need to buy for the baby- there’s plenty that you need for yourself too! When we got home, it was clear that I was very unprepared for breastfeeding. Who knew you’d need so much stuff? Nipple cream, breast pads, electric pump, nipple shields, hot and cold packs were all very much needed for me. I also realised I was severely lacking in nursing-friendly clothes. I’d recommend buying a few good quality maternity bras and then a heap of cheap ones too to wear to bed/around the house. Babies are messy eaters so you will be changing your clothes a lot more regularly than you think!

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

I’d like a few tips myself to be honest- haha! I guess what has worked for us is taking turns to sleep… Noah is a bit of a difficult sleeper so the old saying “sleep when the baby sleeps” is a bit hard when the baby isn’t sleeping. I express a bottle every day and it’s on hand if I want to go to bed early or have a nap- my partner is able to feed Noah without waking me up so I can get a decent chunk of sleep. If we don’t end up using it then it goes into the freezer for another day.

I’d also suggest stocking up on snacks/finger food for when you’re breastfeeding and can’t use both hands. I have a container of biscuits next to the couch at all times in case I get hungry while feeding Noah. Even just premaking sandwiches and cutting up cheese, fruit etc ready to go is super handy when you’re starving but don’t have time to make lunch.

Jodi’s portfolio made us so excited for our session – her photos are just amazing!

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

I had no complications during the birth but became very sick and was hospitalized with Hyperemesis Gravedarum during my pregnancy. I lost a total of 17kgs and wasn’t able to eat, drink or toilet for 5 whole weeks.

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

We couldn’t wait and found out that we were expecting a boy at our 20 weeks scan 🙂

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 chose a name that was sentimental to our relationship, our first kiss was during the movie ‘Patch Adams’ so we chose Boedy’s brothers’ name… Hunter!
