ABOUT US & OUR TEAM
In 2007 I opened my first studio with the vision of creating lasting memories for families celebrating the arrival of their new babies. Years later when my own babies arrived, I gained a new perspective of just how fleeting the first few years of their lives were and how important it was to capture these moments while they were still little.
As a photographer and a mum, my main goal is to celebrate new life through imagery of love and connection but also through the tangible imprint of your child’s hands and feet, never to be that small again.
For over 12 years our passion and inspiration to create a unique range of handmade keepsakes has kept growing, and I am so proud to present our newest Baby Imprint collection which is the product of many years of hard work and dedication – there is nothing else like our handmade keepsakes in the world! It would be an honour to share our passion with you, working together to create a piece of art that celebrates the new baby you have brought into the world.
On behalf of my team and my family, congratulations on your baby’s safe arrival and we look forward to welcoming you to our studio very soon.

THE BABY IMPRINT JOURNEY
I have been a photographer for most of my life and started this business when I was just 19 years old in a small room at my parents house. After completing a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree majoring in Photography at the College of Fine Arts (UNSW) I worked as a freelance photographer for 7 years until it was time to open my first studio in Leichhardt in 2007. Photographing babies and families was always my passion, as was ceramic making when I was at university, so I decided to combine these two forms of art and create a product completely new to the baby keepsake market.
‘Baby Imprints’ was introduced in 2010 and to this day continues to be the heart of our business. To date we have completed thousands of frames and I have had the privilege of creating Baby Imprints for celebrity customers such as Kate Ritchie, Manu Fieldel, Kayla Itsines, Jackie O, Megan Gale and Mary Coustas, just to name a few. For a decade I have handwritten under each ceramic tile the names of every child that has had a Baby Imprint made; it’s my favourite part of the process and gives me great pride knowing that each Imprint frame has been completed by hand and created from the beginning with great love…
