I am an award winning professional photographer on the Gold Coast. I have been awarded top 3 newborn photographer on the Gold Coast for 2021. Not only am I industry qualified and of high standard, I am a genuine, caring person who is so passionate abut producing natural images, candid moments as well as life long memories. I have experienced IVF so my motherhood journey has been a rollercoaster but a pure miracle that I can relate to so many others about. I have lost both parents which is the main reason I have so much passion about documenting families, newborn and maternity sessions. I believe that these memories and moment are priceless.
I have completed a certificate in newborn safety with the The Academy of Newborn Photography
I offer a client wardrobe for ladies which have 30 stunning dresses for you to choose from. All neutral colours such as white, creams, rust, greens, browns. I have a blog on this topic to help families prepare
I also have some ideas on Pinterest to help. ( click here )
Please feel free to contact me or send me pictures of outfits you have, I am always happy to help out and give advice.
Yes I have all vaccinations up to date which enables me to be around newborn babies.
I only ever have one baby in the studio each day so you will not be in contact with anyone else except my husband who helps out sometimes, he also has whooping cough vaccinations up to date. From January 2022 I have my covid vaccine.
If we have a studio session, either family, newborn or maternity you are welcome to see the images straight after the session, please keep in mind these are unedited. If you prefer we can do an online zoom meeting to view your images within a few days. In your viewing appointment you will choose your favourite images and decide how you would like to display them.
Once you have chosen your favourite images payment will be made or a payment plan will be in place. I will begin the editing and ordering process.
Please note all orders are final as per the contract.
I accept all major cards either online or over the phone or bank transfer. I offer 0% payment plans and lay-by also.
I am always accomodating to session changes as i understand that things happen in life, but i am running a small business so these changes can impact me significantly.
For newborn session we only pencil in a date and then confirm a date once baby has arrived. Once this is locked in if you need to change the date there will be a fee of $100
For maternity or family sessions i will make one change of date with no fee, after this i will charge $100.
This is because i only take a number of clients per month, if you keep changing dates it may prevent someone else having a sesison and of course impacts my income.
I do offer payment plans which are 0%.
I have afterpay which is 0% Afterpay is great as you get to have your images straight away.
I offer layby which is 0% and you can set up a payment plan to suit your budget. You will not receive your images until the full amount has been paid.
Yes absolutly i encourage this. I use the best print labs in Australia. My computer is matched to their print colours so it will print perfectly as you see it on screen. They also use print paper that you cannot get in other small walk in stores.

We can show you how the wall art can look in your home before you decide to purchase, ask me how.
Please note all orders are final and cannot be changes as per the contract.

The best age for a newborn session is from 7-15 days. This is so we can achieve those squishy poses of a newborn baby. However I do photograph babies of any age. Each milestone reached is just as important as the newborn stage.
Those first two weeks of having a newborn are a complete blur, I love to capture all of the details of a tiny newborn baby that you can look back on and remember, not just now but in years to come. Capturing those new family moments are priceless, you can never get that time back again. I have never had anyone say they regret getting newborn photos, however I've had plenty of people say they regret not getting the newborn photos.
For newborn baby sessions, I have a lifestyle set where images are more natural or I also offer baby props such as tiny baby beds and buckets for a more newborn posed look.
Newborn photoshoots are done with a lot of patience, photography expertise and newborn baby safety training. I will always use parents to help where safety is a concern. For instance if the baby is in a bucket, I will pose safely and ask a parent to hold the baby in place while I photograph. I will then use my computer skills to remove the parents hand if we need to. Safety is always my main aim. I would generally do a newborn session with parents and any siblings. This can be in the studio or outdoors or at a location of choice.
Devina’s caring and professional nature made it so easy for our newborn’s shoot. She welcomed us into her beautiful (and Covid safe) studio where we could relax while she worked her magic. These precious images she captured will be treasured by our family for a lifetime. We were really happy with the whole process and highly recommend Devina.
Amazing attention to detail and beautiful results. I’m not the best when it comes to having my photo taken and can feel so uncomfortable however Devina makes you feel comfortable and confident the whole time. The service is some of the best I have ever received and she will go above and beyond to make sure you’re happy. A true professional in every sense who takes your every need into account.
Such an amazing photographer! I absolutely loved how hands on and good she was with my newborn. Devina is very friendly and professional. 10/10 would recommend to friends and family.
I was having a hard time finding a photographer for both maternity shoot and newborn shoot as there are many to choose from but I don’t want a session that I feel rushed and just another random client. Lucky enough I found Devina. I feel valued. She was very patient for both the maternity and newborn shoot. My little familiar very relaxed the entire time. She is also very creative to come up with many ideas, looks and poses which are really beautiful and classic, looks that are timeless. In addition, her range of wardrobe for female client is beautiful and has lots to choose from, you need not worry for an outfit change.
Recent did a newborn family photo shoot with Devina. She was so professional and such a pleasure to work with both kids were so comfortable around her. We absolutely loved the images it was really had to pick as they were all so beautiful. I would highly recommend Wild River Photography.
