Newborn, Baby and Family Photography Melbourne

Kapture Photography


Melbourne newborn and family photographer.


Hi there!

I’m Karen. Passionate newborn photographer, baby whisperer, Mum, wife, cat lover and serial romantic. Congratulations on your beautiful baby! Welcoming a new baby into the family is the most special time in your life.  Once your baby arrives, life seems to pass in a blur of late nights and nappies. And before you even realise, your tiny newborn, well, they aren’t so tiny anymore. As a Melbourne newborn photographer I’m passionate about capturing your baby’s every detail. Their funny little expressions, button noses and pink tiny toes. I preserve all these precious fleeting details so you’ll never forget a moment.

Melbourne Photography Studio

If you’re looking for a Melbourne newborn photographer who’ll capture precious keepsakes of your baby, I’m here to help.  I offer newborn sessions in the comfort of my home-based custom built studio in Rowville, just 27 kilometres south east of Melbourne. Its contemporary, comfortable and homey atmosphere ensures each photography session is a relaxed and enjoyable experience. I also have a huge range of gorgeous newborn props and accessories for you to choose from. 

As a Mum of two ‘growing-like-weeds’ kids, I understand how important these moments are. So preserve these memories with beautiful photographs. 

Before your cute tiny babies morph into teenagers.

I can’t wait to hear all about you and your gorgeous baby.

Our experience has been wonderful, Karen is very accommodating and has such a knack with new borns. Our photos are beyond stunning.

We have had the pleasure of getting to know Karen in two sessions. I genuinely don’t know how you were able to capture such incredible images with an energetic 3 year old and a wriggly baby but you did it so effortlessly.

Years of Experience

My story so far….


Tiny, innocent, precious babies *squeal* who doesn’t love them? Hand me a cute chubba bubba and a camera and I’m happy! I’m truly passionate about helping families kapture special moments in time and create lasting, beautiful artwork they’ll forever cherish.

I LOVE what I do. Since 2004, I’ve photographed over 900 new Melbourne babies – that’s a lot of chubby adorableness! I’ve always been artistic; I took painting and drawing classes professionally for 15 years. But it’s photography that gives me the perfect creative output; I like to talk A LOT and family photography lets me do that. In fact, clients often tell me how much they’ve learned while having their photos taken. And they usually ask if I can pop round at four in the morning to help settle their restless baby. I really wish I could!

I like to share my passion and knowledge, so I’m also a photography teacher and mentor. And I’m always taking training courses to hone my craft, stay on point with the safety side of things and keep up to date with tech from the likes of Apple, Nikon and Adobe Photoshop.

When I’m not helping families make memories, I’m playing with my own two kids who sure know how to keep me on my toes!
