The little things really are the big things - and they deserve to be captured intentionally. Nothing fills me with more joy than being witness to the beauty of your family's love, in all its untamed, fun-filled glory. Let’s bottle up that feeling and make it last.

It’s the pancakes on a Sunday morning. It’s a dance party with your toddler while you are making them. It’s snuggling in bed with all your favourite people. The way your hands fit together just right. The way they look at you when you laugh. Promising to be each others cheerleader forever.

I’m here to capture the small, fleeting, ordinary, extraordinary moments that make up your life and your family - not just how they looked, but how they felt. When you look back at your photos, you’ll feel the honesty and the connection that takes you back to the moment and reminds you of the life you’re building together, one tiny moment at a time. 

Big feelings. Realness.
Unconditional love.

photos that are felt in the heart.

My goal is to capture

I am a Melbourne based Family and newborn photographer with over 12 years of experience.

I believe in photographing those little things you might not even notice that capture your flow as a family. The in-between moments, glances, crinkle-eye smiles, goosebumps. There’s nothing more beautiful and fascinating to me than the pure joy and the unconditional love parents have for their children. 

There’s no need for perfect poses, perfect weather, perfect outfits, or a perfect location to capture the perfect memory. It’s about a snapshot in time - those photos that allow you to hold a feeling in your hands.

Hi, my name is Janine

Meet your photographer

"Janine is a very talented photographer and master settler of babies. She managed to capture beautiful photos of all our children, including two crazy toddlers. We highly recommend her and would definitely use her again. And we also learn a thing or two about settling babies, just watching her with our newborn. "

"Janine is the best Melbourne photographer!"

"Our newborn session with White Salt Photography was fantastic. Janine was amazing with our 5 week old son throughout the whole session. She has a calming aura about her that relaxed not only our son, but also us as new parents. We absolutely love our photos! They all turned out beautifully and captures such precious moments of our son naturally. "

"Our newborn session was fantastic!"

"Janine is extremely talented! She documented my maternity and newborn, and we recently did a family session. I am blown away each time. She is caring, amazing with newborns and toddlers and knows how to make her clients feel most comfortable. Her work is gorgeous beyond words, its magic. Janine is the one and only photographer I will ever go to, because she knows how to capture the depth of emotions in her work, creating timeless memories. "
