  • Utterly wonderful experience with Kristy and her team. I can’t speak highly enough of her thoughtfulness and professionalism. I was made to feel comfortable and my little man was looked after, despite not being able to settle for our first shoot. And after it all, the pictures we came away with were stunning. Thank you Kristy.

  • Kristy is an amazing photographer, an absolute natural. I sought out Kristy for our second child’s newborn and maternity photos, as our first child’s session with an inexperienced photographer was not a great experience and not many nice photos. We love every single photo from our sessions with Kristy, she made us feel so comfortable and was wonderful with our children. She captured our family just beautifully.  We loved every minute of our sessions and look forward to further sessions with her. I couldn’t recommend her more. Thank you so much Kristy for your beautiful work xo.

  • We first saw Kristy’s photos when searching for someone who could take beautiful maternity as well as newborn photographs. Her work stood out immediately, she was quick to respond to our email enquiry and was well priced. I was uncomfortable in front of the camera but she quickly put me at ease and got some lovely shots of my husband and I, and later on our beautiful little boy (who really didn’t want to sleep!). Since then we’ve never looked elsewhere – we’ve been back again to see her for family photos, another maternity shoot and another gorgeous newborn shoot. We have some stunning prints and canvases adorning our walls from these sessions. Kristy, thank you for all your work and we’ll be sure to see you again.

  • Amazing photographer. So gentle and calm with my little girl! Taught me some amazing settling tricks that work well on her. The photos are stunning and have captured treasured memories that we will hold dear forever.

  • Kristy has photographed my daughter since she was born and we have continued to have her photograph our family every year since. She is an incredibly talented photographer who has an amazing way with babies and children. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone wanting family photos done. Professional, warm, friendly and genuine. What more could you ask for? We love your work Kristy Mannix Photography!

Award Winning Newborn Baby Portrait Photography in Perth

My name is Kristy Mannix, a professional photographer who loves nothing more than taking high quality portraits for my clients. Seeing a big smile on someone’s face after delivering a collection of great looking photos makes it all worthwhile. I would love nothing more than to provide you and your family with a collection of beautiful portraits that will last a lifetime.

I have been a portrait photographer since 2008, and am still very passionate about what I do. I truly consider this a dream job, and enjoy learning more about photography every day. I take my craft very seriously and feel that the quality of my work speaks for itself. I live in Perth, with my wonderful husband and my two lovely children, as well as an amazing teenage step daughter.

Not only do I enjoy producing gorgeous portraits, but I also love getting to know my clients and their families on a personal level. Working with a family over several years and seeing their children grow up is incredibly satisfying. In addition to being gratifying, this personal touch also leads to great looking portraits. Many of my clients comment that I make them feel comfortable in front of the camera, and that they are pleased with how this leads to beautiful, natural looking portraits.

I take portraits of newborns, families, children, and couples. I also offer maternity and newborn combo packages. All portraits are available in both print and digital formats. Giving you and your family a set of fantastic looking photos is what I love to do. Contact me today to learn more about how I can take gorgeous portraits of you and your family.

I am particularly passionate about taking newborn baby portraits. These photos of the precious new member of your family provide memories that last a lifetime. I always photograph newborns completely nude, without any clothes or nappies on. I do provide props, knitted hats, headbands, wraps, and everything else that is needed to take incredibly cute portraits of your darling newborn.

If you want to have parents or siblings in the photos, that can easily be arranged. You may want to add maternity photos as well. I can produce a great set of portraits from before and after your beloved baby was born. Keep in mind that newborns are best photographed when they are between 5 and 12 days old, so sessions usually need to be booked before the baby is even born.

Babies older than 14 days are much less sleepy and more difficult to pose, which can compromise the essence of newborn portraits. Contact me today to book a newborn portrait session for your beloved baby. To see samples of my newborn portraits, check out the blog and portfolio sections of this website.

If you have any questions about what I can do for you, your family or your soon to be newborn, please do not hesitate to contact me. Feel free to browse the blog and portfolio sections of my website to get a sense of my photography approach and unique portrait style.
