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.

Although I’m a nomad at heart and love nothing more than travelling around to document your wildest adventures, the one place that has always felt like home to me is with my husband Sam.  When I’m not being your favourite third wheel, you can usually find me exploring walking tracks with my family or chill on the couch watching a movie. 

I can’t wait to get to know your story, and I’d be so honoured to play a small part in helping you tell it.

My passion for photography was sparked as a child was flicking through family albums, remembering the special times we've had. Since I was a teen I had a camera attached to me where ever I went. In 2012, when my first child was born I started my own business focusing on families and their love stories.

Besides being a photographer, I am a mama to two girls, Luca and Juno. I love the hills and the ocean, the smell of spring, 80's music and I am sucker for a chai or a soy matcha latte.

I fall in love with families all over Melbourne capturing their perfectly imperfect moments. I believe I was put on this Earth to notice and document those tiny moments that tell your story.

Melbourne based newborn & family photographer for the wildly in love

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.

The in-between moments, glances, crinkle-eye smiles, goosebumps.

"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. "
