Hi! I’m Michelle and I am a newborn baby, maternity and family photographer. I live in sunny Perth with my hubby, Andrew, our three children, two dogs, our rabbit and our guinea pig. I love coffee and watching Game of Thrones, Mitchell and Web or Brian Cox documentaries on the couch with a glass of wine (or three). I try to walk wherever I can, I enjoy reading whenever I can. My guilty pleasures are MKR on the TV, Bombay Sapphire gin and eating in bed. I love cooking and I'm kind of a crazy plant person too. We are "accidental" co-sleepers, extended breastfeeders and baby-wearers.
I grew up in Cape Town, South Africa and I've also lived in England and Scotland in the UK before settling in Perth, Western Australia. I went to university in Cape Town, South Africa and Manchester in the UK to study medical science and sort of fell into photography along the way! I **REALLY LOVE** what I get to do for a living now. I can't actually believe how lucky I am to be living my dream!
Since moving to Perth I have won several online children’s portrait competitions. I am a stock photography contributor for Getty Images and Austock Photo where my beloved fur baby, Bruno is a big star!
My photo sessions are relaxed and friendly, and you are welcome to bring your own props and ideas. I love photographing family connection and I want to capture WHO you are more than what you look like. I am all about fantastic customer service. Reach out to me HERE and I'll get straight back to you.
I can’t wait to meet you!

"I can't recommend Michelle @ Little Brown Rabbit Photography enough. So happy we chose her for our maternity & newborn shoot, the pictures were amazing and she's been an absolute pleasure before, during and after!
I researched so many different newborn photography studios in Perth but her pictures were the loveliest. I loved how she offered a maternity + newborn photos which included the digital copies in full resolution, without any hidden cost for which we would have had to pay more to get the pictures."

"Had such a great experience with Michelle! Her studio is just beautiful and we loved the props available. She’s professional but warm and friendly too, I thought my bub was going to be difficult but Michelle knew exactly what she was doing and how to get the best out of her. Absolutely in love with our photos!"

"Michelle is very professional. We did both maternity and newborn photoshoots with her. Basically you just need to show up at her studio and leave everything with her. My baby was a little bit unsettled when we arrived but she managed to settle him down quick and the photoshoot went on smoothly. Most importantly, the photos came out beautiful and we are very satisfied."

"Downloaded our photos yesterday just wanted to send you a quick email to say thank you so much for them, they’re absolutely gorgeous and we love them.
I’m so pleased you not only managed to capture that lovely newborn stage and all the little details of Lucas but also managed to capture some really great photos of him with Tyler despite his sudden disinterest in his baby brother! Also really really love the family photos, another great capture! I can’t wait to get some printed to add to our walls."
