“Golden slumbers kiss your eyes,
Smiles await you when you rise.
Sleep, pretty baby,
Do not cry,
And I will sing a lullaby.”


The Mater Little Miracles program helps give seriously ill and sick babies a better start in life.    It was a little over 6 years ago now that Marcus & I sat in a neonatal intensive care unit with our premature and very sick twin boys.   Since then, to say thanks for the healthy children we now have, we actively raise money for perinatal research at both the Mater and the RBWH where we had our boys.  One of the ways we do this is through a joint initiative with the Mater Florist.

Each “Mater Baby Boy, Baby Girl or Twins Package” includes a gift voucher for a Studio Impressions newborn portrait and helps to raise funds for perinatal research. Whenever you buy one of these gorgeous packs, Beata & her team at Mater Florists donate to the Mater Little Miracles Foundation.  Studio Impressions then makes a further $50 donation back to the Mater Little Miracles Foundation each time we take one of these very special baby portraits.

We are really lucky to have on our team a photographer who just loves photographing newborns.    So here are a few of our beautiful “Mater Little Miracles”, all captured in their gorgeous newness by the perpetually clucky and very talented Karen Pedwell.

 Cares you know not,
Therefore sleep,
While over you a watch I’ll keep.
Sleep, pretty darling,
Do not cry,
And I will sing a lullaby.
