Whether this is your first pregnancy when everything is new and exciting, or last, with an air of sentimentality, or anywhere in between, capturing memories of where your baby began their journey is a beautiful part of your story. During my maternity sessions, you’ll be encouraged to think of the journey you’ve had up to this point and imagine how it will be to soon cuddle the special little person you’ve been growing and nurturing for so long. The sessions are also a special way to capture your family before the arrival of your baby. Maternity sessions are either held outdoors in the late afternoon, and we will discuss your preferred backdrop that suits you and your family prior to the session.

Your precious little baby will bring you years of joy, happiness, and love. Capturing their delicate features while they are still a newborn will let you look back on them as they grow, and see how much they have changed. You will also be providing them with a beautiful keepsake of their first few weeks of life. My style is natural, without distracting props and colours. I want you to look back and remember the way you felt when you shared those first moments with your precious child. How your baby smelled when you held them up to you; how it felt when they wrapped their little fingers around yours; the way you looked at them while the rest of the world (and my camera) melted away when they were in your arms. The images I capture of your baby will be earthy, real and natural. They will be gently posed into natural looking poses to show off their sweet little faces and features.

New on London Mums Group This Week (Saturday 21st of October – Saturday 28th of October)
Newborn sessions are held in my purpose-built home studio on St Huberts Island, Central Coast, and are best held between days 6 & 10 of your baby’s life (if you have missed this window however, I won’t turn you away – beautiful newborn images will be able to be captured up to 6 weeks old). It is best to book while you are still pregnant to ensure a booking, however last minute bookings may be able to be accommodated.
Those first few days of your baby’s arrival are often filled with excitement, relief, joy and exhaustion. You will take hundreds of photos on your phone of your precious newborn, but how many images will you be a part of? This is such an important time in your life, and when they are older, your children will look for photos with you in them. I know you will probably be feeling exhausted and not looking your best, but that’s where having a professional photographer can make all the difference. I know the best angles, poses and lighting to help you look your best, and, for those of you who really don’t want to be in the photos, can capture you in a way that you’re ‘in’ the photos without really being in the photos. Cherish these first few days and create memories of them as a family with a First Glimpse session at Gosford Private Hospital.
Karmel is based on the Central Coast, 1 hour from Sydney and Newcastle. She photographs maternity, newborn, babies and toddlers and has a wide range of props to use in your babies photo session. Captured by Karmel photographs pregnancy, newborns and babies.

The High Tea Party presented by The Australian Women’s Weekly, gives you a beautiful high tea experience at a five star venue, whilst watching a gorgeous fashion parade.
The photos are amazing, and it was hard not to choose every single one! Linda, you are a baby whisperer; so gentle, kind and warm. We had a great time and loved every part of the experience. — Hayley & Taylem
As your children grow and personalities emerge, there is no greater gift than to have portraits that capture them at different ages, and almost more importantly, have portraits with you as parents in photos with your children. Family sessions are held outdoors in the late afternoon and locations are discussed with your prior to the session. My sessions are more about you interacting as a family rather than looking at the camera and smiling (although that will also be in your gallery). Different seasons allow for a different ‘feel’ in your images, so think about the time of year you would like your portraits taken. A session preparation guide will be provided so that you and your family can have the best experience possible during your session.
Karmel Baker is the premier Central Coast NSW Maternity, Newborn, Baby and Child Photographer.
