Family photographers don’t get much more on point than Jessie Walker – a Central Coast-based photographer with an eye for sentimental detail and a flair for natural beauty. Jessie captures the majesty of life’s meaningful moments, right from the excitement of your engagement and wedding day through to the tender years of pregnancy, the few weeks after meeting your newborn for the first time, and the milestones your family reaches as it grows.

Maternity Photography

For those mamas experiencing it right now, pregnancy can feel like it lasts a lifetime, But it won’t be long until your new baby is in your arms and the once familiar stages of each trimester have started to fade. That’s why capturing these moments can be oh-so-precious, not only for you to look back on, but for your child to cherish as they grow older.

Jessie offers soon-to-be mums a choice of having their maternity images taken throughout the day at her studio in Hamlyn Terrace, or you can opt for an outdoor session at sunset – simply divine.

Package Inclusions: This wonderful package includes full access to Jessie’s unique client closet (see more details on this below), and a minimum of 30 downloadable images.
Cost: $500 (or combine this with a newborn session for $850 – that’s a saving of $250)!
Tip: Maternity sessions are best done at around 30 weeks, however, book early as Jessie is fully booked up to 6 months ahead.



Newborn Sessions

Jessie’s newborn photoshoot sessions take place at her very cosy home studio based in Hamlyn Terrace where you and your tiny bundle will have access to her adorable client closet – all props and wraps included. Plus, partners and other children are welcome too!

Package Inclusions: This package includes full access to Jessie’s client closet and a minimum of 30 downloadable images.
Cost: $600 (or combine this with a maternity session for $850 – that’s a saving of $250)!
Tip: Newborn sessions are best done in the first two weeks, but any time is fine as we all know adjusting to newborn life sometimes isn’t black and white!

You don’t have to worry about keeping your outfit clean of baby chuck and messy hands!
