Those first few days can be a blur when you bring baby home. But what better than to have some sweet images to remind you of those early precious moments. A newborn session can be as simple as me coming over to document a few hours of your day with the newest member of your family. No need to dress up or clean up- just be in the moment.
I will unobtrusively document all those precious moments for you to look back on in years to come.
If you want cute baby all curled up, I can bring my newborn kit to your home with a selection of blankets and wraps.
Imagine sitting down with your child when they are 20 years old & looking through a photo album of their first days at home – what could be better.
“Tracy took photos of my baby belly, and newborn shots of our little girl. She so beautifully captured the excitement, trepidation and joy of a brand new person. The shoot was relaxed and easy, we didn’t even dress up. As time passes and babies become more mobile it is increasingly hard to capture our little person in images, it’s really worthwhile to have the newborn photos to feel you’ve retained something from the early blur.”
The League of Extraordinary Women’s March 2014 breakfast found me madly scribbling this in my notebook….

Photography matters to me for a number of reasons
Sometimes, it’s about capturing a family spending time together, re-discovering what it is like to have time out of the everyday to just be in each other’s presence and laugh. I give my families topics to chat about and fun things to do. In doing so, they connect with each other in ways that are getting rarer in our busy lives.
Sometimes, I record something as simple as road trip or a night out out with friends.
Sometimes, it’s about documenting my own family. The rituals we have at Christmas, birthdays, holidays and family gatherings. My family is pretty quirky and eccentric so capturing these details is so important. These memories will be precious in years to come.
Sometimes, I do the 10 on 10 project. It’s 10 images on the 10th of the month of everyday life. I love this project. It’s like a visual journal of our lives.
Sometimes, it’s when I undertake personal projects or collaborate with other photographers. These projects take me out of my comfort zone, make me try new things and face my fears.
Sometimes, it’s to document a wedding day. These wedding photos will last a life time for generations who come after to pour over the albums and learn about their family’s past.
Sometimes, I take photos on my phone of the best coffee/meal/shoes/friend/my puppy….many of these have ended up as fridge magnets. I often get caught up in gazing at my fridge door, grinning as I reminisce past fun times.
Gosh- the list of reasons for why taking photos matters to me could continue until the end of this page.
I love capturing memories. It fills me with warmth, excitement, fulfillment & joy.
I had the pleasure of spending 45 minutes with this lovely lady. Vanessa needed a few head-shots for her upcoming website and her i-phone selfies just weren’t cutting it.
WHAT A YEAR!!!
It was a huge year for for my little family full of ups & downs but above all- heaps of belly laughs!!!
Here’s just a brief round up .
We battled our last battle with the Mother Nature and called it quits in baby making (after 10 years it was a big ouchie for us that hurt our hearts. You can read about it here.
A huge storm exploded our roof off and destroyed our ceiling, furniture, carpet…we spent 7 months sleeping in 8 different beds, living out of green shopping bags, but discovered our funny buttons and ability to laugh hysterically at life (a big, weird arse camping type adventure really).
I had a major operation & spent 6 weeks in bed & am still doing recovery physio (gym queen in the making – WATCH THIS SPACE)
Shot more weddings with my awesome side-kick Katrina.
Fell in love even more with photography – did more personal stuff.
Launched a personal blog for everything that doesn’t fit on this one.
Grew up – a lot.
Learnt to appreciate who and what I have close to me.
Made some pretty wonderful new friends.
Became part of a collaborative photography project.
Had a 10 hour pub session (it was so cool).
Fell in love even more with Mr. M as we approach our 8th year of annoying each other!
…oh…and made a slideshow of highlights (though a couple of older images may have slipped in cause I can!

I have some special friends.
They live far away.
We talk a lot on Face Book and via e-mail.
One special day found us catching up in Mittagong NSW.
My two lovely friends were shooting a wedding in Bowral NSW so I drove up from Canberra to hang out.
Bettina hails from Sydney & Marina from Queensland & both are fabulous photographers. We are all working together on the awesome Collaborative Project called “Shh Nobody’s Watching” an ongoing blog that was sparked off by Marina. You should check it out- it showcases some great moments that were all caught unawares by a group of lady photogs.
Check out the many faces of this guy! What a cutie- it was pretty hard choosing which photos to post of this little guy! He was our house guest last week and kept us entertained as he watered the garden (and himself), followed the dog around trying to hug him and generally laughed his way through the weekend.
His big brother and sister were a delight to hang out with, their young energy was infectious
Enjoy the rest of the holidays guys and we will see you back soon I am sure.
I have been madly updating my personal blog this holiday season.
I promise to pop in a few client posts here on the Tracy Lee Photography Blog soon.
