My Brisbane newborn photography sessions have a relaxed feel, capturing natural moments and loving connections. The whole family are welcome to participate including your special pets. If you're searching for lifestyle newborn photography - this is it!

Newborn baby posing is gentle and minimal. Your baby's comfort and safety is my top priority. Your baby can lay in your arms, be all wrapped-up or even stretched out in their cot just being themselves. Let's forget the cheesy posing - that's not my style. For your comfort I will come to your home-sweet-home. Turn up your favourite tunes while we spend some time together.

I'll guide the whole family every step of the way so you can be in the moment. Get snuggly, breathe in that newborn baby scent and feel the LOVE. I'll be there capturing all the little BIG things you won't want to forget.

Outdoor Brisbane newborn photography sessions are becoming increasingly popular. If you prefer to venture outdoors let's choose the right setting and enjoy Brisbane's beautiful warm weather. Please ask for my preferred Brisbane photography locations or we can meet at your favourite Brisbane setting.

As a mother of two, I have treasured these moments with my own little ones. Please book in advance to reserve time for your family to catch these wonderful milestones. My clients receive an unhurried session and for peace of mind I never book back-to-back appointments. If your family requires a little more time - I'll be right there for you.

Newborn client review

"Beautiful photos, impressive customer service."

Our experience with Sarah was second to none. I can't express enough how happy we are with our experience of having an extended family photo shoot with Hello Sunshine Photography. The whole process was extremely professional and organised from the initial phone call booking to receiving our images. Sarah is very friendly and a wonderfully talented photographer. Our images are beautiful and we will cherish them always. Her prices are reasonable and she is very good with (not so happy) children. The shoot itself was relaxed and fun. Hello Sunshine Photography will definitely always be our first port of call forprofessional family photography from now on! Thank you!!!"

"Sarah did my daughter's first birthday photos.
She was professional, reasonably priced, full of ideas, I was scared I would look awful but she knew how to position us to look our best."

FAMILY photography


My Brisbane family photography sessions are all about getting in the mood for fun. I encourage you to be playful and let the fun unroll with your family so I can capture the real you and your best family moments filled with joy. If we're honest - no one likes award poses so lets leave that part out!

We can plan an outdoor adventure or stay home and bake a cake - or whatever your family ejoys. Authentic magic moments that tell your family's story are my jam! There will be a classic photo (the one Grandma wants) where everyone is looking at the camera. Then it's all about warm cuddles, rides on dad's shoulders, games, giggles, sibling photos, idividual photos of the kids and so on. For a memorable session jokes are an absolute must to keep the whole family happy - especially dad! Oh, and did I mention pets are welcome? Your fur-babies are a huge part of your life so bring them along to join in the fun.

Outdoor photography sessions are held just before sunset. Indoor or in-home photography sessions are more flexible.

Let's chat! I'd love to hear more about your family and how I can capture what's most important to you - easy!

family client review

"Sarah was lovely to deal with. She was so professional from the word go and very patient during the photo shoot. It's easy to see she loves what she does and has a genuine passion for photography. She managed to capture some beautiful photos of my 12 month old despite his bad mood on the day. We love the photos and would highly recommend her to anyone we know who is looking for a great photographer. Thanks Sarah!"

My Brisbane maternity sessions are similar to a family session with one major difference... The focus is on you - the mum-to-be and your beautiful baby bump! Connecting with your baby curve and surrounds makes for wonderfully relaxed images.


Partners and children are welcome to join in as well as any special pets.


Lose yourself in your partner’s adoring gaze, giggle with excitement as you touch your growing bump and just be in the moment! I will find the prettiest spots while I capture you (mumma-bear) solo and together with your family in various combinations.


Brisbane maternity sessions can be held right in your home featuring your nursery (for example) or at a scenic outdoor location. There are so many lovely Brisbane locations to choose from including green leafy parks, beachside (my personal favourite) or even an architectural setting. I can help with ideas.


Sessions are ideally booked between 32 – 36 weeks when you have a beautiful round bump and are still quite comfortable. However, any time you’re ready is perfectly fine with me.

maternity client review

"After reviewing a number of photographer websites online and taking recommendations from a Facegroup group - I was instantly drawn to Sarah at Hello Sunshine Photography's image style. Light, bright and natural. No heavy, 'same-same' studio shots. Sarah provided so much information and was so lovley and helpful of the phone. The end product - really are beautiful photos. not to mention Sarah was also happy for us to include our 'fur-babies'...and was ever so patient with them and us during the shoot! We look forward to the next round... the newborn photo! Thank you Sarah! x"

"Sarah Jones from Hello Sunshine Photography Brisbane did such an amazing job capturing our true selves with my maternity shoot that we ended up using her for our newborn and cake smash shoot too. Her work is out of this world, she's professional yet interacts and form a bond with her clients setting us at ease from the first point of contact.
5 Star Service and photos.
Highly recommended. Will be a return customer."

about me

and why I'm so excited to meet your family...


Hello! I'm Sarah - a wife and mum of two plus two fur-babies chasing light and family life Brisbane. I'm the photographer you call for totally relaxed outdoor sundrenched family sessions and stay-at-home snuggly newborn sessions. My style is to capture your honest loving moments in a fun-loving way.


I capture all the 'feels' and what your unique love looks like. I will draw out your joy and connections with your loved ones so your tummy flip-flops when you view your images. It's an honour to capture heartfelt images that tell your story. There are SO many beautiful stages from pregnancy to adulthood and I can't wait to capture yours.

Connection, laughter, warm embraces and tickle fights are what my Brisbane photography sessions are all about. Our time will be spent focusing on fun including barefoot snuggles on a blanket, exploring our surrounds, rides on daddy's shoulders, jokes, games and (if I have to pull out the big moves) silly noises. I will be there capturing these moments of your family in all your glory.


If you're uncomfortable being in front of the camera - never fear! I'm here to guide you every step of the way so you can enjoy yourself while beautiful, authentic moments occur naturally. My clients know that I love a chat and I will take the time to get to know you and to put you at ease for a memorable session.

I totally understand how fast little baby faces mature and change and for me there's nothing better than being able to capture these golden moments for you.

I'd love to spend some time making memories with your family.


Children don’t stay little for long – book your session today and revisit this wonderful time for years to come.


Sarah x
