Brisbane Birth Photographer - Indie's Birth story


Indie Willow arrived earthside at 2:04pm on a beautiful Tuesday afternoon. Her entrance was very quick but I believe thats because she knew the amount of love that was waiting for her. A surprise gender, Mum and Dad were overcome with emotion to meet their daughter.


Here is a little part of her birth story...

Not many women are smiling during labour but this is the second birth I have captured for this beautiful family and mum smiled throughout both of them!


At 2:04pm Indie was born into the world with a speedy entrance!


Placed on mums chest, the realisation that they have a little girl is sinking in. With two big brothers at home little Indie Willow has completed their family.



It was such an incredible experience witnessing the birth of not just one but two children for this beautiful family. Being a Birth Photographer I am capturing some of the most precious moments in a Childs life. Their first breath, their first cry, the first time they open their eyes. The emotion from Mum and Dad when they see their baby for the very first time and the moment they hold them for that very first time are just so special and to provide that memory captured forever is why I love what I do.


The Day after Indie's birth I came back up to Mater Mothers in Brisbane to capture her big brothers meeting her for the very first time. And what a moment that was! They brought in cards that they had made for her and just instantly fell in love with their tiny sister.


Everything about this image just brings back memories of those fresh newborn smells and super soft skin!


When I first arrived mum was sitting in the afternoon light soaking up all that newborn goodness. Indie was so sleepy and content she wasn't waking for anyone. Not long after the boys arrived with Dad and were so happy to be reunited with Mum but more so to finally meet this little person they have patiently waited 9 months for.



Mack, a professional big brother now was instantly drawn to Indie and couldn't stop smiling the moment he saw her.

Nash is new to being a big brother but he was ready for cuddles!

Everyone was keen to hold Indie's hand and shower her with love

The boys gave Indie a present and snuggled it into her crib with her.


Very keen to hold her they loved her squishy cheeks and soft skin


With this gorgeous family all together and soaking up the family of 5 life, it was time for me to head home. Capturing this important milestone for them was something I felt so honoured to do. As I walked the corridors of the hospital I reminisced about Indie's birth and the incredible strength and courage her Mumma had. I witness the most amazing moments life has to offer and Im so proud to be a Birth Photographer.
