Perth Newborn Photography Sessions

Hi there and welcome to my Blog on Perth Newborn Photography sessions!

Please you take the time to sit back and enjoy your visit. My name is Melissa (but feel free to call me Mel), I’m the owner/creator behind Melissa Sheed Photography and have been capturing gorgeous memories for Perth families since 2008. 

Being an Internationally and Nationally award winning portrait photographer.

My style is not only creative, fun and whimsical but strongly Timeless and Elegant.

I am a natural and studio light photographer and my specialities are: pregnancy, birth, newborn baby, family and child photography.

Offering affordable outdoor, sunset, on location or beach photography sessions for expectant mums, children and families. I offer studio photography sessions for maternity, newborn baby, infant, children, family and 1st Birthday cake smash sessions.

I’m a Mum to three absolutely amazing children, wife to a Carlton supporter and have a love for all things great and small. I am a perfectionist and love adventure, travel and discovery new and interesting experiences. Whilst juggling two extremely busy family businesses plus a very hectic family life is challenging, it brings me great happiness in sharing my creativity and creating wonderful memories for so many Perth families.

I started my business shortly after my daughter Lorelei, was born. At the time I had being working in the pharmaceutical industry for over 11 years, from community pharmacy to travelling over Australia as a drug representative. I discovered that my passion with the camera was somewhat of a hidden talent, so I have been nurturing it ever since.

With numerous international mentoring trips and destination commissions I have photographed over 1200 newborns since late 2008.

Of course I simply LOVE what I do and nothing warms my heart more than capturing this fleeting time in my client’s lives and giving them back amazing art pieces that will last beyond their life time.

Furthermore I am extremely blessed to have a husband that supports and believes in me and encouraged me to follow my heart.

Additionally I am so grateful to have such amazing love and support from my beautiful clients as without them I would not be here today. Thank you so much for sharing your precious babies with me, and thank you so much for your referrals.

Help my baby is older can I still have a Perth Newborn Photography session?

As baby get older they tend to sleep less soundly and do not curl up as easily. Overall they have longer awake times and become rather challenging to settle with the onset of colic and gas. Melissa can accommodate any family who wishes to have a non-posed ‘lifestyle’ session with an older baby.

Perth Newborn Photography sessions last around 2-3 hours with everything that you will need on the day being provided by Melissa. All Perth Newborn Photography sessions are baby focused however optional sibling and parent/family portraits may be included at no additional cost.
