Maternity Photographer & Pregnancy Announcements

intimate location maternity portrait sessions in Perth

I'm Melissa Sprlyan, your maternity photographer in Perth. Photographing meaningful portraits to celebrate your pregnancy is just as important to me as it is to you, why? Because I regret not documenting my own pregnancies, I want to ensure you have these portraits for both YOU and your baby! This is a special time for your family too therefore partners and siblings are welcome to be included. I give gentle direction and my aim is to photograph the connection between you and your unborn child. The options are endless here, some clients prefer more intimate sessions in-home, others style the session for a special pregnancy announcement or gender reveal too!

Examples of our maternity photo sessions (but not limited to)

  • Maternity portraits just for Mum
  • Maternity portraits including partner and siblings
  • Intimate maternity portraits
  • Pregnancy announcement photography
  • Gender reveal photography

Over the years I have built a list of tried and tested locations in Perth, ones that I know photograph maternity portraits well year round. My locations are central to Perth, easily accessible and safe for young children. Maternity sessions on location are scheduled late in the afternoon, usually ending just after sunset. Read why you need a maternity session here.

Wardrobe is crucial to ensuring your portraits are of the light style you see in my portfolio. I dress and style your entire family, we have pieces for Dad and young children. I've found this to be one of the main reasons my clients choose me as their maternity photographer. We have over 100 pieces in our boutique style wardrobe, most of the pieces for Mum are flexible in sizing, bump friendly with easy access to breastfeed. I've found Mum's love the wardrobe because the process is simple, it eliminates the stress and time wasted on shopping. On average my clients save $500 per session using our wardrobe!

Celebrate your motherhood story with a Collective Membership to document your pregnancy, newborn at home and important milestones. Create a luxurious heirloom album filled with your favourite portraits from each session, personalised with engraving and include meaningful messages to your child. Full product and pricing guide is delivered upon enquiry.

love notes

d'amico family

“I had a style in mind for what I wanted and Melissa knew exactly what I wanted and was able to help me create it. From the styling to the location and her overall professionalism, it also felt like we had known Melissa for ages as she was very easy and comfortable to deal with, it was one of the best experiences and especially with a newborn Melissa made it very easy. We were able to see some preview photos today and they were breathtaking, we are so looking forward to seeing how the rest look!”
