Maggie’s talent for freezing your treasured moments in time is undeniable, as you’ll soon discover while swooning over her gorgeous images that are quite honestly, spellbinding.

Maggie specialises in maternity, newborn, family, AND cake smash photography (if you want to see examples of this last one, check out her website here!) and to say that she will do the most precious time in your life justice, is an understatement. To see some of her beautiful images, find out more about her set locations, and discover an amazing wardrobe of designer maternity gowns and stunning props, read on!

Maggie’s enchanting images will capture your glow and excitement, giving you the ultimate keepsake and fond memories you can always come back to.

Mums-to-be can choose to have a sunrise or sunset photoshoot at a stunning Central Coast location of their choice – think on the beach, in the bush, by a flowing waterfall, or amidst the expansive grassland. Or they can opt for the comfort of a fine art session at Maggie’s studio in Narara.

Sounds (and looks) incredible, doesn’t it? If you’re expecting a baby and would like to chat with Maggie about your journey and locking in a future date for your maternity photoshoot session, you can get in touch here. It’s worth mentioning that the best time for your maternity photography session is when you’re between 30-36 weeks pregnant so be sure to take that into account when locking in your spot!

These images are so beautiful, they’ll take pride of place in not only your home, but in the homes of everyone else in your family! In fact, we can guarantee that they’ll be so adorable, you won’t be able to control the baby spam!
