WHY “NEWBORNS OF MELBOURNE”?
Newborns of Melbourne was created after two of our close friends experienced first hand the devastating loss of Stillbirth. We were completely shocked and saddened by this news and also totally unaware of how often this happens every day in Australia.
Therefore, several years later we decided to start Newborns of Melbourne book project with our newborn sessions to donate and help raise funds and awareness for Stillbirth Foundation Australia. Currently in Australia six babies are born still everyday! Our babies are precious, and this shocking statistic reminds us what a truly wonderful gift they are!
Booking a Newborns of Melbourne session will help raise funds for Stillbirth Foundation Australia, to reduce stillbirth through research, education and advocacy as well produce beautiful photographs of your newborn for you to love forever.
