Sarah Black, Family, Newborn and Baby Photographer

Making memories for keeps

children, family, maternitysarah blackComment

Over the last year I feel so blessed to have had the opportunity to capture quite a few families visiting Melbourne from Singapore. Visiting Melbourne on family holidays, these families have set aside a couple of hours to combine the fun of visiting somewhere new with the experience of hiring a family photographer to make long-lasting memories. Such a beautiful idea, and quite a lot easier than chasing your family around with a camera yourself!

I adored meeting this gorgeous growing family, soon to welcome another little soul to their clan, for a combined maternity and family session.  We met up at Point King beach in Portsea on the Mornington Peninsula, as the family were staying in nearby Fingal. With perfectly mild late summer weather, this was such a relaxing way to explore one of our most stunning beaches. It is really an honour to be asked to document a family's love (not to mention the fleeting beauty of an expecting mother), and an afternoon in their life, this way, and I hope these images bring this family joy for generations.

Wherever you are you are everything you need to be, to have, to breathe in and hold hold hold and exhale,

into the next hour place golden light-filled scene.

You are deeper than where you are or how, closer to the source than what you look upon or touch.

It's all a golden afternoon at the theatre, and the scenes roll in and out in perfect ease

while you applaud

until your hands are sore.


Julie Guertin and her spectacular family wanted to commemorate their time living in Melbourne, before heading back to their native Canada, with family photographs at the first beach they visited in Balirgowrie on our Mornington Peninsula. Julie is as in love with film as I am; please do yourself a favour a check and out her incredible work, especially on colour and experimenting with 'film soup'. Julie photographed our family recently, and I cannot wait to share some of those images soon too!
