Watch Me Grow Through the Years Portrait Sessions


This time in your life is so very significant, but so very brief. Cherish it. Remember it.


For those parents seeking more than a newborn session, we have recently released a new package that follows your journey through parenthood, and captures the most important moments that happen within the first few years of your child’s life.  With our distinguished photojournalistic approach and avid love for storytelling, our ‘Watch Me Grow’ package features a series of photography shoots that document every special milestone in your little one’s life, featuring those most important to you. These sessions are shot over stages including maternity, newborn, first steps, cuddles with grandparents, christening and first birthday – as well as any memorable moment in between. We can even capture "a day in the life", documenting the daily routine of yourself and your partner with your newborn, or join in on different adventures at various stages throughout their childhood, to convey their growth through our series of stills.

We offer this, as we find that before too long you will making lunches and dropping them off to pre-school – this early part of their life all happens so quickly.  So why not have it captured forever?

For the many wedding couples we have photographed, we will start with a maternity session followed by a visit to you up in the maternity ward on either day one or two of the birth of your newborn. Either Marcus or Karen will come to you in the hospital suite and document the wonderful joy you are experiencing (plus a little tiredness). For couples new to Studio Impressions, it’s often that your first baby session will be at the studio within the first two weeks. We will then follow your journey anyway you would like us to, whether it's just the important milestones, or every six months – we can tailor a package to suit your needs. Enquire today about the options available to you.


Since selecting Marcus Bell as their wedding photographer, where he captured Sarah and Budhi's wedding in Brisbane at the Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) within the Queensland Art gallery precinct, we've been following their journey, as they move into the next chapter of their lives – parenthood. From the first maternity shoot in the pine forest, north of Brisbane towards the Sunshine Coast, to the delivery of their newborn Eidie at the Brisbane Mater Mothers Hospital in the maternity ward, we have been with them, capturing each precious memory with our lens. Within days of coming home, one of Eidie's very first outings was to our Brisbane City Newborn Studio in Spring Hill where Karen Pedwell weaved her magic to take some gorgeous portraits.  We have loved documenting every step of their journey and watching their little family grow. In Sarah and Budhi’s case, the tradition has continued with the arrival of their second child Esther.  Even before Esther came along we did a maternity shoot, this time down on the Gold Coast in the late afternoon golden hour light at Currumbin, and once she arrived, we were able to capture their very first moments together as a family.


Offered as an individual service by the studio or as part of your "Watch Me Grow" series, christenings are an important moment in your family and newborn’s lives. It’s a wonderful opportunity not only to capture the service but every person who is close to you.  Occasions like these, that bring everyone together in your lives, are often fleeting. With a mix of portraits as well as documenting the celebration throughout the day, we can ensure these memories will last a lifetime, not to mention preserve a special piece of your family history.
