Welcome to Leanne Haywood Photography!

I LOVE photography. It is who I am! I have a Certificate III in Photography. Not to mention hundreds of hours of experience. I specialise in maternity, family portraits, newborn sessions and cake/paint smashes.

I have a commercial photographic background having worked in an advertising agency in Sydney. Since having my two sons I have found a renewed love of portraits. They have literally changed the way I see things. It's the little things that matter. Those little details that you may not notice or appreciate. I try to capture those. So you have them to look back on in years to come.

I love to capture those special moments in YOUR life! My style is described as natural and relaxed.

For family portraits – location sessions are recommended, a chance to have fun at the beach or nature reserve, letting children’s imaginations run free, making for fun and natural family photographs.

Maternity sessions can be shot on both location or in my studio - or a combination of both.

I have a home studio. I have lots of props - which you have access to. I have a prop addiction so have so many to choose from!

Cake & paint smashes are so much fun. It's all about capturing your child's personality at that age (all aspects of it).

You won't pay for individual prints with me - I will give you the high-res images on disk (so you can do what you want with them).

I also travel for sessions, so please suggest this page to your friends and family. I have clients in Sydney and have travelled there on a number or occasions for sessions.

I use professional photographic equipment. Well-maintained Nikon camera equipment and a professional studio lighting kit.

I offer very affordable photographs of your growing belly, your newborn and your growing family. I have various packages available. Please note these can be tailored to suit your needs! I also offer Gift Vouchers and payment plans.

Newborn safety is of the utmost importance to me. I take it very seriously. My immunisations are up-to-date and I have the experience and knowledge to pose and work with babies in a safe and comfortable way.
I have attended in person training workshops with world class newborn photographers: Kelly Brown (Kelly Brown - Little Pieces Photography) and Anya Ponti (Anya Maria Photography).

Photography is more than a job or career for me, it's my passion. I absolutely love what I do!
