Meet the Photographer

Hi!  It’s so nice to have you here 🙂

My name is Jariyah and I am a Queensland based photographer, specialising in newborn photography.

Based on the gorgeous Sunshine Coast, I am a lover of light and shadows, nature, animals, coffee and of course chocolate!  When I am not photographing, you will find me spending time with my beautiful family, working out, watching movies (I love movies!) or spending time with our animals.  My studio is cozy, relaxing and is located in the comfort of my own home and has had the pleasure of welcoming many families over the years.

As a wife and a mother to four beautiful children of my own, I truly understand and appreciate the importance of capturing life as it unfolds and the gift of being able to re-live those memories and milestones through beautiful photographs – a wonderful investment. I LOVE creating images that will last a lifetime, and there is nothing more rewarding than seeing the absolute excitement on the faces of my clients when they see the end results!  I adore everything about what I do and I am so blessed and grateful to be able to have this talent to share with you all.

I want you to remember how you felt, at that very moment in your life.  So you will remember exactly how little they were- their smell, their touch and the true innocence and beauty of all that being a newborn holds. In the years that will follow, every time you look at your images you will be taken back to when your newborn was just that- brand new.

The flow of your session is guided gently by myself.  Although, your babe sets the pace.  Some little ones need a little more settling than others, and that is totally ok!  It is so important for you and your family to feel safe and comfortable.  So I will never rush or force a pose or set up.

The safety of your newborn and your family is of utmost importance to me.  So naturally, I am fully immunized, as are all members of my family.  I have attended numerous in person training workshops, newborn safety workshops and also one on one mentoring with world class photographers.  Having had many years of experience and having traveled all over the country advancing my art, you will be rest assured that your moments are captured beautifully.

I have always loved taking photos – it has been a passion of mine since I was just a little girl. However it really started to evolve when I had my first born daughter.  Her sweet little features were growing so quickly and I didn’t want to miss any of it! As a new mumma, I wanted to capture her just as she was and would never be again- newborn.  This is what led me to specialize in newborn photography.  Capturing all of the little details of a teeny brand new babe is just so important to me.

I enjoy taking simple, unique and natural images as well as black and white timeless classics that you will be able to treasure for generations to come. My attention to detail, even the smallest of those, and my unique style is what sets me apart from the rest. 

I welcome you to browse through my galleries and if you like my style of photography, I would love to hear from you!
