the portrait experience


Stacey McCarthy Photography offers pregnancy, newborn and family sessions, so you can make sure you capture every age and stage of your journey through motherhood. 


Newborn sessions take place in my home studio in Mount Annan, and are best held during the first 14 days after baby arrives. Older babies still photograph well, but are often more alert and easily stimulated during posing. 

I recommend getting in touch to book your session shortly after your 12 week scan. If your baby is already here get in touch asap to check availability.​ Sessions take around 1-2 hours depending on baby. We will capture a number of different set ups along with family and sibling shots. 


I hold a certificate in newborn photography through the Academy of Newborn Photography which means I'm trained in newborn health and safety. I also hold a certificate in infant first aid and CPR, and all my immunisations are up to date. You can rest assure that your precious baby is in safe hands.


Photographing your family regularly is very important to me. After losing my mum, the one thing I was so greatful for was the fact that I love taking photos. It means that my children will always have those memories of her that they can cherish forever.


For mums it is super important to me to capture you with your babies, no matter how old they are! One day they will go looking for photos of you and what will they find? I want to bring you out from behind the camera to exist in photos WITH them. A beautiful family photo is something that will only grow in value over time.

Family sessions are held on location in and around the Macarthur and surrounding areas. I prefer to photograph my families in the last hour or so of the day so we can capture the beautiful warm glow of sunset.


For me, pregnancy was one of the most amazing things I have ever experienced. The female body is capable of such amazing things, which is exactly why I think every pregnancy should be celebrated. Your skin is radiant, your belly is perfect and round and your boobs look amazing!


Let's capture all of that and more with a beautiful on location pregnancy session. Sessions are best held between 32-34 weeks when your bump is big and round, but before you get too uncomfortable. Of course partners and older children are also included.

Pregnancy sessions typically take around 30-45 minutes and are held on location in and around the Macarthur and surrounding areas.

a word from my clients

"Stacey was an amazing photographer to work with, with my newborn twins. Stacey was creative, efficient and extremely patient, even when the boys were fussy. She was extremely helpful with my decisions on which photos to choose, the design and prices.

I highly recommend Stacey as a photographer for the whole family."
