2018 Brings lots of exciting ventures and one of them is to share my vast knowledge of how to run a business and some other really cool stuff I know. So if you are interested send me an email and I’ll pop you on the list for when the dates are released.
This seems to be the fallback choice of the masses, the place people suggest when they can think of no other. While beach shoots can be fabulous, especially during golden hour, there are so many other options out there and they don’t necessarily need to be pretty or picturesque in order for you to get some great shots.
GEELONG NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER I NEWBORN I FAMILIES I MATERNITY
I have to admit, I really love the ruggedness of the area and I love the end result. There’s a raw beauty that’s interesting but doesn’t detract from the subject. I think I’m definitely going to add this little spot into the rotation for winter sessions.
– Florence taking a pit stop during her Little Sitter session recently –
“Jane you are amazing at what you do! You are have so much passion and enthusiasm and it shines through into your work. Nothing was too much to ask for. Hehe no bonets 🙂 I cannot thank you enough i absolutely love all our photos of ava they are beautiful!”
I am a natural light photographer servicing Geelong, Torquay, the Bellarine Peninsular and the Surfcoast.

When I first heard of this little guy’s impending arrival, I was super curious to learn what his middle name would be. That probably seems a strange and unusual thing to be thinking about – but with his big brother’s middle name being ‘Wild’, I couldn’t wait to learn the moniker his parents would gift his baby sibling. I knew it would be something a little different and I wondered what they would come up with for their gorgeous second child.
The 8-10mth stage is hands down my favourite, well, second only to the newborn stage. I love when they’re on the cusp of crawling but are not yet too mobile; when they’re full of smiles and express delight and wonder in pretty much everything. And I can’t forget to mention the cuddles. Every beautiful, squishy one of them.
With limited time until darkness descended, this was where we headed. Whilst Emme explored, I did a quick recon of the area, hastily photographed my very patient 9 year old, then headed home to see how the location showed up in camera.
These days, feeding in public is not only more socially acceptable but celebrated. There are groups and forums and hashtags all dedicated to this beautiful act.
Today, we continue to create the precious, natural newborn images our studio has become synonymous with.
They didn’t disappoint. Darling Judd Brave was as divine as I imagined – in name and in nature.
To be honest, I would have been mortified if someone had tried to take a photo of me breastfeeding my first child. Feeding in public 9 years ago wasn’t anywhere near as socially acceptable as it is today. If I fed my daughter out and about, the poor thing was near suffocated by a strategically placed wrap. God forbid somebody see something they shouldn’t! As a result I have not one photo of that special time with her. Nada. And that kind of makes me feel sad. It’s like a milestone we forgot to capture and now it’s forever lost.
Often when I ask a client if they have a particular location in mind for their session, they’ll hesitantly answer, ‘Um…the beach?’
In addition to our newborn services, we also offer maternity, baby and family sessions, both in the studio and on location. For recent sessions, please keep scrolling below or for more information, visit the links above.
Earlier in the week, I’d noticed this spot on the side of the road and taken a couple of iPhone pics so I’d have a visual reference for later. But a little more on that at the end of the post…
We are a fine Art and Design Photography Portrait Studio that specialises in Newborn, Baby and Family Photography delivering natural, classic timeless images that document precious times.
At a time when the idea of newborn photography as an independent genre was still in its infancy, Baby Buddha Photography grew to accrue a loyal clientele and a steadfast reputation for dedication and professionalism within the industry.
“Thank you so much Jane. You made my shy little girl have a ball getting her photos taken .. It was so much fun .. The photos are absolutely stunning .. My husband cried when he saw the photos of his little girl .. You, Jane are the best .. Thank you again Xxx”
It wasn’t really a conscious decision to do things differently with my second daughter, things had just kind of evolved. I asked my lovely friend, Amy Rushbrook Photographer to take a couple of photos of Ivy feeding. You can barely see the poor thing over the ridiculous triangular pillow I had to use when I fed her (neck & back issues, ugh!) BUT this was the way we had to do it in the early days and Amy captured it perfectly.
“Jane is amazing. We loved our wedding photos and working with Jane so much that we came back for our new born photography! Her photos have ‘wow factor’. A lot of time and care goes into planning every shot. She had wonderful patience with our beautiful baby girl, and we absolutely love her photos! Can’t wait to have them all over the house!”
It’s been ages since I went location scouting so last week I convinced a reluctant Emme to leave our gloriously warm and cosy home and keep me company in the frigid cold whilst I attempted to find somewhere new to shoot. With the sky turning a stormy grey and rain threatening to fall, we had just 20 minutes before the light of the day would completely disappear.
When Florence came in for her Little Sitter Session the first thing I noticed was her stunning blue eyes and those squishy little thighs – I just wanted to squeeze her!
Welcome to Three Wishes Photography. The Three Wishes Photography Studio is based in Torquay, Victoria. We provide newborn photography either in my Torquay Studio or on location. Child photography, family photography and wedding photography are on location.

I don’t know if it’s because people are too nervous to ask or whether it’s because they’re just so daunted by the whole prospect of feeding, especially if they’re new to motherhood, that it’s something they just don’t contemplate capturing.
Leo in his gorgeous bow tie and divine little Jax – so much cuteness. It was such a joy spending time with this beautiful family.
So why aren’t more people capturing it during their newborn or family sessions? You would think that would be the perfect time, right? Hair is brushed, clothes are clean and good money has been paid to have your little family professionally photographed. So why stop there?
A little place called Phoenix Reserve which resides alongside the Barwon River. It doesn’t look like much does it? The area itself isn’t particularly large but it’s quiet, fairly centrally located and easily reached on foot.
Mamas, if it’s something you’d like to remember, please don’t be afraid to ask for a photo of yourself feeding. Don’t think about the breasts that currently look like over-sized melons or the milk that’s just come in and has them feeling like they might explode at any moment. Don’t worry about looking awkward because you and your baby aren’t quite in sync yet. Your photographer is there to bring out the best in you and to make everything look effortless.
It was during Florence’s Little Sitter session a few weeks ago that it suddenly dawned on me. I realised I can count on one hand the number of times I’ve been asked by a client to take a breastfeeding photo. Which is odd given that through my work as a newborn photographer, the studio sees more unfettered boobage than old mate Hugh at the Playboy Mansion.
I’m fondest of the random places, the ones that people generally wouldn’t think to pick. Think laneways with peeling, painted garage doors or barren fields of long, dry grass. One particular location I used to use and was often asked about, was literally a clump of bushes on the side of the road.
Whether it is newborn photography, family photography, child photography, maternity photography or wedding photography, to me, it is all about the moments.
After years of dedication to photography, I am expanding my package options. With my precise attention to detail and a personalized approach, I strive to capture those magical moments with timeless portraits. For ideas and inspiration check out my portfolio, and contact me directly for bookings.
