{ Baby Barker – Bendigo Maternity Photographer }

These two beautiful people are about to embark on their journey of parenthood. Any words of wisdom for them?

Mine is ~ Seek out other new mums and do life with them. I’m a strong believer that motherhood is meant to be done in community; together. Don’t do it alone. For Dad, never EVER underestimate the value of your support.  You’ll need to be her crutch for a little while.  She may be consumed with the demands of her baby but she loves you and needs you. : )



{ Vivienne – The Birth Story Photographer }

During my school years I never liked reading. Every time another book was required for literature class, I would first flick through the pages in search for the pictures. I liked the pictures, not only did it mean a few less pages to read, it added colour to an otherwise black and white world. My sister on the hand dreams of being locked in a room with a pile of novels and a cup of tea. We are all wired differently and that’s what makes the world exciting.

Funny enough I LOVE stories and it is STILL all about the pictures! To the picture lovers alike – Here is a story (without words) of a beautiful couple becoming a family!  Enjoy xx

{ Baby in 2014? }

Hello there! It’s been awhile but I’m nearly back on Australian soil after some big adventures through Asia with my family.  I may have coerced my husband to return a little earlier than expected as I was tempted to capture some more birth stories earlier this year.  In return for his co-operation he did score permission to buy a camper trailer!  Happiness all around!  I am excited to get straight back into the magic of storytelling through art.  The Birth Story is now taking bookings for 2014.  Please note there are very limited spots left for birth bookings in 2014.  If you would like your pregnancy, birth, or newborn story documented then I would love to chat with you!

As I’m currently still out of the country, email is the best contact info@thebirthstory.com.au
