"I can't recommend Michelle enough. My son and I have recently finished the watch me grow program (photos at 4, 8, & 12 months) and Michelle easily captured his growing personality over 12 months. My son was always comfortable in the studio and at ease with Michelle, she knew exactly how to make him smile. I will be back for future portraits as I love Michelle's style and how easy she is to work with. Thanks Michelle for great photos, they get lots of lovely comments."

- Suzanne, Ferntree Gully (Newborn Session & Watch Me Grow)

"We were delighted with the photos that Michelle took for us. They were exactly what we were hoping for and we found it hard to choose which ones to buy because we wanted them all! We now have beautiful maternity and newborn photos to treasure and our family love them too. Being a new mum I was nervous about how my 10 day old baby would behave at the photo shoot but Michelle’s expertise put my mind at ease straight away. She was great with our newborn and was able to take truly beautiful photos."

- Kirsten, Croydon (Newborn Session)

"Michelle has taken maternity, family and newborn photos for our family. We are always amazed at how beautiful her work truely is. She is always very patient with our three children and never rushes them. Michelle is a perfectionist when it comes to her work & her photos are always outstanding."

- Stratos, Keysborough (Maternity & Newborn Sessions)

pregnant couple

"We were very impressed! Our friends recommended Kiddy Kats to us for a newborn photo shoot as they had recently booked with Michelle. When I initially called to enquire, Michelle was friendly and really helpful because I wasn’t sure how it all works. I didn’t hesitate to book in our photo shoot because I had spoken to a few other photographers who hadn’t made me feel as comfortable with the process. On the day of our shoot I was kind of surprised that I enjoyed it, as Michelle spoke to us throughout the session about the poses and I was comfortable that the family photos wouldn’t look too corny. Michelle’s approach made the experience stress-free. We love our photos!"

- Chris, Croydon (Maternity & Newborn Session)

Mum with daughters

"When we decided to get maternity and newborn photo shoots done, we knew what we wanted in terms of subsequent prints. As I began the process of speaking with photographers, I realized that most offered very rigid packages that didn’t meet our needs. Michelle on the other hand was great!! She told me about her packages & how she could adapt them to suit us. She thoroughly explained the process & costs involved so we knew exactly what we would walk away with and there would be no surprise costs.
Michelle was a true professional at both our shoots. She was patient and understanding with our toddler at the maternity shoot and did a great job settling our newborn for her shoot. Communication with Michelle has always been easy and prompt and she was flexible at arranging viewing days.
The finished products are of a very high standard. We are so proud to display the pictures of our beautiful girls around our home and are regularly complimented on how lovely the photos are. I can confidently say that we will return to Michelle for our family photos in the future!"

- Sara, Croydon (Maternity & Newborn Sessions)


"My husband and I were amazed with the photos Michelle captured for us of our baby. Michelle is very professional and took the time to gently place our baby in different positions when he was only 11 days old.
I would highly recommend Kiddy Kats Photography and will definitely be using them again for some family portraits. Thank you Michelle for our beautiful photos your work is exceptional!"

- Leni, Doncaster (Newborn Session)

We had a newborn photo shoot with Michelle and I would definitely recommend her to anyone who needs unforgettable moments captured for life. Michelle was very professional and the way she handles and poses baby was exceptional! I would definitely go back to her for the second child! Thanks Michelle!"

- Jin, Berwick (Newborn Session)

- Mimi, Carnegie (Family Session)

"Michelle of Kiddy Kats Photography was fabulous to work with. She was friendly, easy going and wonderful with my 18 month old daughter who was a little snotty and a little miserable. She got some absolutely fabulous photos, which we adore (and she even Photoshopped out a bit of snot, which I appreciated greatly!), and the whole process was very easy and straight forward. Would totally work with Michelle again, thanks Michelle!"

- Suzi, Ferntree Gully (Children Session)

"I would highly recommend Michelle from Kiddy Kats Photography for family photos. The images were fantastic, and the atmosphere for the photo-shoot was very relaxed and Michelle is very patient and engaging especially with a teething, unsettled baby. Michelle was confident we would get some great images and we did. Michelle knows her stuff and is very professional and the images are of high quality."

"Michelle is great. We used Michelle for my boy's 3 week old photo shoot and then again as a family shoot nearly 1.5 years later. Photos are an amazing quality and found her packages to be great value for money! Easy to work with, flexible and really personable. Will be booking again for Baby #2 pics and would highly recommend using her for any photography requirements!"

- Sonia, Pakenham (Family Sunset Session)


"Michelle was great with both my girls throughout the shoot, even when they became slightly challenging to work with. The photos she captured of my girls were beautiful, and the artwork she created of them was amazing. I highly recommend her and would 100% have her do more photography in the future.
Thankyou Michelle."

four generations

"I have used Michelle's photography skills twice now; firstly for newborn photos of my daughter in the Kiddy Kats studio and then more recently, 18 months later, for a Mother's Day four generation photo shoot of my daughter, Mum, Nana and I, outside in the Dandenong Ranges! Both times I couldn't be happier with the service and result! Michelle is a lovely person to deal with and makes you feel instantly comfortable with the whole process. I am in love with all my photos and was so pleased to gift some to my Mum and Nana for Mother's Day! They were so happy with such a meaningful gift. It was worth every cent! Thank you Michelle, I will be coming back for sure."

- Brieanna, Emerald VIC (Family Session)

baby and sisters

"I can't recommend Michelle enough, She was so lovely, patient, accommodating and professional, Michelle takes her time to get to know you and to get some great photos and you don't feel rushed at all!! The quality of the photographs are next to none. I'm so in love with them."

- Melissa, Springvale VIC (Baby Session)

baby boy with brother

"Michelle is super professional, but also very warm and forthcoming to deal with, especially when she is doing your photo shoot. We took family photos in her very well set up studio and sufficed to say, she was well prepared to deal with our two small children (2 and half year old and 7 month old) with toys, change facilities and lots of patience. She made us feel very relaxed and understood how to make the kids feel comfortable in front of the camera. She had many options for props and backgrounds and our photos are just beautiful and proudly presented in our home. The photos have received many compliments from all who come to our home and see them on the wall. I would highly recommend Michelle from Kiddy Kats!"

- Helen, Glen Waverley VIC (Family Session)

Newborn twins with sister

"We could not be happier with our beautiful photos and the whole process involved in taking them. Michelle was extremely friendly and professional from the initial contact, and made our whole family feel comfortable and relaxed, which shows in our photos. Our 6 year old daughter is incredibly shy and never smiles for photos but Michelle managed to capture the most beautiful photos of her, not to mention the stunning photos of our newborn twins. Thank you Michelle, you have captured a beautiful moment in time for us and something we, and our families, will treasure always x"

- Melinda, Ferntree Gully VIC (Newborn Session)

Newborn Photography

"Michelle, the owner of Kiddy Kats Photography, made our newborn photography experience one we will remember fondly. She is not only very talented but she knows just how to create those perfect images whilst trying to manoeuve a newborn into gorgeous little poses maintaining a calm, patient & friendly composure throughout. Michelle made us feel very welcome in her gorgeous studio ~ it is beautifully set up & I feel she is definitely the person you should seek if you are after some unforgettable stunning images whilst holding, watching & admiring your little bundle of joy. I would highly recommend Michelle & her expertise to anybody wanting that extra special touch. She is a gorgeous person to boot! Thanks again Michelle for creating such priceless images of our little daughter that we will cherish forever. We are very grateful."
- Danni, Upper Ferntree Gully VIC (Newborn Session )

"Thank you so much for capturing such precious memories of our daughter. Michelle was so incredibly patient and professional when working with our newborn daughter who was not overly cooperative. At no point did Michelle rush or push our daughter in the process and the finished product is invaluable! Michelle was able to capture absolutely gorgeous images of my daughter and our new family. I would and have recommended Michelle to my friends and family."

- Molly, South Yarra VIC (Newborn Session)

"We had a wonderful experience with Michelle. Excellent quality photography and we felt comfortable through the whole photo shoot. Very professional and friendly service. The studio is set up well and is very comfortable. I get compliments all the time by people who walk in and see the prints around my house! We will be coming back for more photos soon!"

- Leah, Bayswater VIC (Baby Session)

family fun

I won a competition that Michelle @ Kiddy Kats Pet Photography was running to have a pet sitting in the studio and portrait. I absolutely loved the whole experience, not only was "Monty" my cat a star, he and I were put at ease by Michelle's friendly, calm presence, and anyone that has a cat knows how important this is. Michelle is not only baby friendly, she is pet friendly too! The photo's of Monty were so outstanding that I decided there and then that Michelle just had to do a family portrait of my adult son's and myself. These were outstanding also. I will treasure forever the portraits I have, especially as "Monty" passed away suddenly at only 1 yrs old, to help with the pain I know I have him forever in print. I have had so many people comment on her photographs. Love your work Michelle, I will be back with my new cat "Hamish" very soon.

- Nicole, Cranbourne VIC (Family Session)

"Michelle from Kiddy Kats Photography is awesome! Michelle is very professional, knowledgeable and talented. My husband and I are very happy with the photos she took of our newborn son Luca. She made us all feel very comfortable with the whole process. She captured some really beautiful poses and moments. Michelle is honest, prompt and will go the extra mile to deliver what she promises. I highly recommend Michelle's services."

- Laura, Keysborough VIC (Newborn Session)

"We recently had Michelle take photos of our newborn son. During the shoot she was extremely calm and patient particularly with our toddler who was not willing to cooperate at all! The photos she took are stunning. She even managed to capture several gorgeous shots of the uncooperative toddler! I'm currently undertaking the difficult task of choosing what photos to display throughout our home as there are so many beautiful ones to choose from."

- Jean, Mount Waverley VIC (Newborn Session)

"I recently saw Michelle to have some family portraits done as I wanted some of my son Michael at his one year old age. The photos of us as a family were overwhelmingly beautiful and the photos of Michael on his own were more than what I expected! Her patience with him and us as a family as he ran around her studio was brilliant! Michelle was lovely to deal with and the photos were everything I wanted and more xxx"

- Louise, Cranbourne VIC (Family Session)

"We recently booked Michelle for a newborn session for my 3.5 week old baby. Michelle explained to me that newborns are best captured at under two weeks of age, so we were unsure of how it would go on the day. However, with Michelle's patient, calming and relaxed nature, she was able to capture all the newborn shots, plus more! The photos are so natural, serene and totally adorable. The newborn collection was great value, and with flexible packages and being so close to home, the whole experience was just wonderful. "

- Liliane, Ferntree Gully VIC (Newborn Session )

"We hired Michelle for a photo session with our 3 week old daughter. Her attitude towards the customers (in terms of work ethic, communication skills, photography related knowledge etc ...) exceeds all the expectations. She pays great attention to details while keeping the big picture in mind. Therefore she is a true professional focused and dedicated in getting the job done in a very professional manner and within the stipulated timeframe. The final result was outstanding and the prints that we displayed around the house get praised by all the people who come to visit us. I will not hesitate to recommend Michelle whenever I'll get the chance."

- Chris, Endeavour Hills VIC (Newborn Session )

"I can't speak highly enough of Kiddy Kats Photography. We couldn't be happier with the service provided by Michelle - from first enquiry right through to receiving our gallery and final package Michelle was warm, accommodating and responsive. She was able to fit us in at very short notice and did an outstanding job capturing beautiful images of our bundle of joy and little family, taking the time to get beautiful and somewhat natural pics (not too posey, which is exactly what we were after). I highly recommend Kiddy Kats Photography to anyone looking for great value packages and excellent quality images with a warm, friendly and professional photographer in a comfortable studio environment. I know I'll be back to get more photos in the future!"
- Erin, Mount Waverley VIC (Newborn Session )

"We had such a lovely morning at the park with Michelle. She made the kids feel at ease and captured the most beautiful moments! It is hard to pick a favorite, there are so many amazing shots that capture our family having a fun, relaxed time and that capture our love for each other. Thanks so much and we look forward to having more pictures taken with you in the future!"
- Melanie, Lysterfield VIC (Family Session)

"We booked a newborn session with Michelle for our son who was just over 2 weeks old. We were concerned that he would be a bit unsettled. We were extremely impressed at Michelle’s professionalism and how gentle, patient and soothing she was which ensured that our baby was settled and we were able to get the photos we wanted. She is a natural when handling newborn babies! We were impressed with the final output of the photos and customer service. We would recommend Michelle to anyone considering newborn shoots."
- Elizabeth, Mount Waverley VIC (Newborn Session)

"Michelle offers a professional and friendly service in a very comfortable and well equipped studio.
She was very flexible with our needs and fitted us in for our photo shoot at short notice. The photos were amazing, everything we had wanted and more. We would highly recommend Kiddy Kats Photography to others."
- Louise, Rowville VIC (Newborn Session)

"Michelle made the experience personal with her warm and friendly manner and she was prepared to be flexible, even picking up on the body language of the boys and girls when they had had enough. And with a family, it should all start with being personal."
- Deborah, Berwick VIC (Family Session)

“Michelle offers a professional service at a reasonable price. When I first contacted her she took the time to explain to me the process of a newborn photo shoot and she was happy to answer all of my questions. On the day she made us feel comfortable and listened to what we wanted. The photographs she took for us really captured the essence of having a newborn and they have provided lasting memories for our family."
- Rex, Greensborough VIC (Newborn Session)

"We are very happy with the lovely photos we received of our beautiful newborn daughter. Michelle was patient and kind, trying her absolute hardest to settle our very unsettled little one for the perfect shot. Thank you Michelle!"
- Brieanna, Knoxfield VIC (Newborn Session)

"Wonderful, friendly service in a relaxed environment. Michelle is fantastic with kids and gets great results."
- Michelle, Elwood VIC (Family Session)

"Michelle’s experience shines through in the gorgeous moments she captures. Having two boys, it is always concerning as to how they will “behave” on the day of a photo shoot, yet Michelle was absolutely fantastic with them, and the photos she took represent just that.”
- Renee, The Basin VIC (Family Session)

"Breath taking images that truly capture a moment in time."
- Alena, Ringwood Nth VIC (Newborn Session)

- Sally, Narre Warren VIC (Newborn Session)
