Hi I’m Amy and I am the face behind the lens at A Grateful Heart Photography, A Melbourne based photographer specializing in capturing your biggest adventure- your family.

Whether it be it’s blossoming stages with a maternity session, the intimate moments of birth, the overwhelming heart bursting soul world changing newborn stage or the big adventures of family life.  

I have always been the documentarian when it came to capturing the natural moments. First in my role as a teacher, then as a mother and now as a lifestyle photographer. I know how grateful parents are when they see a photo of their children in a moment that captures not just the person but their personality, feelings and soul.  

Growing up in Berwick and spending many weekends and evenings exploring the coast line of the Bass Coast, the pockets of South Gippsland and cool urban haunts of Melbourne compelled me to included beautiful locations to showcase you and your family, the natural, authentic version of you.

Birth is a love story. As a Melbourne birth photographer there is nothing I love more than helping you tell your story. It’s a story of transformation, connection, beauty and awe. There are no moments in life like the first time you lay eyes on your newborn, as you hold them in your arms, your heart swells. Birth photography tells a story. The story of intimacy between you and your partner deserves to be told. Documenting the details of your story as it unfolds through evocative images will transport you back to your greatest achievement over and over again. Considering birth photography in Melbourne, get in touch today.

Telling your story of love at first sight

What is the most important thing in life? For me it is family. Being able to capture the details of your love as your family photographer makes my heart soar. Natural moments of your tribe photographed now forever a memory are what it’s about. My style of family photography is relaxed and fun. We spend time documenting your uniqueness, the moments between parents and children and hopefully some quiet moments with your partner through it all. If you are up for an adventure, crazy children and all let’s find some hills to climb, rainbows to chase, fields to frollick in and make some magic.

The details of your story; the people, the moments, the emotions, that make it unique

The early days of life postpartum is full of curled up newborns, sleeping in patches and enough love to make the long nights worth it. I aim to preserve these moments capturing your newborn authentically in home using a natural newborn photography style. Your baby does not exist outside of your arms and that is where I aim to capture the moments of life with your soul in hand. I brink newborn photography into your home or hospital room. Newborn photography in hospital is within the first two days of the birth of your baby where in home sessions I come to you when ever suits you.

 Making everyday moments unforgettable memories

There is something about photography that just shakes my soul. Whether it of a great adventure or the smallest details of the every day I love the truth and beauty in looking back at an authentic moment through the eyes of a storyteller.

Sharing stories of life, love and learning
My interpretation of the pretty pictures I take

Capturing the greatest story of all, yours.

“Amy took photographs of the birth of our fourth baby, Nate James. I’d never thought I needed or wanted photos of me giving birth before, but with this being potentially our last baby I decided to jump in and get some done just in case I later wished I had. I gave Amy the brief of capturing the emotion and the experience, rather than the delivery itself being the focus, and oh boy did she fulfil her role! When I look at the photos Amy took I am immediately transported back to the moment in time with all the feelings and emotions of the labour, the birth and those first precious moments meeting our beautiful baby boy. Many of those moments I hadn’t even noticed or remembered that she was in the room with us. I am so grateful to forever have these memories and would highly recommend Amy for anyone else looking to capture the raw beauty that is childbirth and the moments that you become a new family, forever changed.”
