I am a passionate and creative maternity, newborn and family photographer. In fact, being a genuine part of your maternity to newborn journey is my absolute favourite thing to do. Ever.


All of my sessions are genuine and uncontrived. And, if we happen upon a cheesy setup, I’m at the ready to capture the moment that everybody cracks up about how cheesy it is!


Those spontaneous ‘in-between-the-moment’ moments are often the best! I guide you throughout the whole process, giving you very subtle direction (if any!). Our session will deliver imagery that is meaningful, authentic and uniquely you.


I really, REALLY love being a photographer. I have been operating Poppy Peterson Photography in the Illawarra since migrating from Sydney. Having spent the first part of my career working in film and TV, I now put all my energy and passion into my beautiful clients, capturing their stories with my photography – and I couldn't be happier being busy and running around Sydney and the Illawarra happy snapping somer seriously wonderful humans.


In fact, my new Goddess maternity shoots have got me (and quite a few mamas) pretty excited at the moment. Take a look at my Gallery to see why! I feel very lucky that I have Mama's in waiting travelling as far as Wagga Wagga and the Central Coast to come and play in my Goddess Maternity sessions.


My work has been featured in The Natural Parent magazine and The Daily Telegraph .


I’m also a proud sponsor of i98FM’s Convoy. And as this fabulous Illawarra event’s official photographer, it’s my absolute pleasure to be able to donate my skills and expertise to such an amazing cause.


I work in Sydney and all over the Illawarra - from Thirroul to Wollongong to Shellharbour, further along the South Coast and beyond; with the odd assignment taking me interstate.


I am mama to two beach babies and one rather gorgeous stepson. Being a mama has strengthened my photography and given me the patience I need to wait…just wait.


I’d love to chat to you about your photography; printing or framing needs, so feel free to get in touch!
