Christmas Mini Sessions – Couch Series

Welcome to my blog post about my Christmas mini sessions for 2016 to be held in Melbourne by photographer Skip to my Lou Photography.

I am so excited to let you know the new setup for this year.  Xmas sessions this year will be “Christmas Couch Series”.  These will take place in my studio in Cranbourne – South East suburb of Melbourne.

These mini sessions  have proven to be very popular in the past.  They are a great (affordable) way to get some photos done in time for Christmas with minimal time and fuss.  The couch series is a great way to photograph the children as well as get some family photos with you as well. It also looks great with little kids or with teens and I hope you love it as much as I do.

Mini sessions are only $195 and include a 45 minute sitting,  use of my props, 5 digital images, a Facebook timeline.  There is a bonus if you refer a friend of an 8×10″ print.  Additionally you can add extra digital images for $40 per image and beautifully printed Christmas cards with envelopes (25 folded cards) for $125.

You will need to book in fast to secure one of these mini sessions.  The first days that I am going to  open for bookings are Friday 18th November & Saturday 26th November.  Please send all enquiries via email or through facebook.

Please view the photos below to see what can be done.  Also if you have a small family dog they can be included in these photos too 🙂

Rochelle came in for her maternity photos with her little girl Elle and her husband.  It was really nice to capture little Elle with her mum and dad and also its great to capture the glow you feel when you are pregnant

Once little Aidan was born the family all returned for their newborn session and below are some of the images from their gallery.  Aidan and Elle were a dream to photograph and I loved getting to play with Aidan in the the blue fluffy clouds photo.  Aidan gave me lots of cuddles on the day and also managed to share a few of his super cute smiles too 🙂





Elle’s Cake Smash – celebrating turning one – what a great idea for a 1st Birthday


Gorgeous miss Elle came into studio to celebrate turning 1.  Having your first birthday is a very special milestone that you will want to capture forever.  A cake smash session is a fun way to capture this milestone and usually means that you can capture lots of their facial expressions whilst eating and smashing the cake.  Having a cake smash photography session invovles coming into my studio in Cranbourne East for 1-2 hours.  Everything you will need for the cake smash session is provided all you do is turn up and enjoy your one year old enjoying what is usually the first time they have had cake.  Certainly im sure it is the first time they have had a whole cake to themselves to do with what they desire 🙂  Here are some of the images captured from Elle’s cake smash session whilst she was celebrating her 1st birthday.  I hope you enjoy.



Meet Jacinta who came in to be photographed for her sitters photography session not that long ago.  Jacinta was so adorable – at 8 months was already standing up and such a cute and happy baby <3 I have probably mentioned this a few times now but I really do love being a photographer and getting the opportunity to meet babies such as Jacinta

Sitters sessions are such a wonderful stage to capure – it usually means a baby that is between the age of 6-12 months and are not yet walking.  They are generally happy and have their bubbly little personalities already and taking photos of these facial expressions give me as the photographer so much joy as well as treasured memories for you to keep for a lifetime.  Have a look below at some of the gorgeous images captured of Jacinta in her sitters session which was held in my photography studio in Melbourne in the south easten suburb of Cranbourne East.

Meet Olivia – I photographed her at 9 days young in my photography studio in Melbourne – Olivia was such a good little model, sleeping beautifully through her poses.  Have I mentioned before how much I love being a newborn photographer! It has to be the best job around.  Olivia gave me lots of cuddles and looked extra gorgeous being photographed against the pink fluff.

Newborn babies are best photographed between when they are 5-10 days old – this assists in the posing of the baby as a newborn in that first two weeks is less likely to wake up when moved or posed differently.  If you have a newborn or baby that is a older than the ideal age send me an email or enquiry through this page as you can still capture your newborn at that age it just may take more time or include less moving but the results are still gorgeous and something you would want to treasure forever.

Please look at more of my work on facebook – there is always lots of updated stuff posted there for you to browse through.  I can also now be found on instagram and pinterest.  Also if you are looking for a Melbourne newborn photographer and you are either pregnant (and wanting maternity photos) or already have a newborn baby please use the contact button above or alternatively email
