Snugglebug Studios Grand Opening Brisbane

Grand Opening of Snugglebug Studios in Brisbane!!

February 1st 2016 is the day I open my new studio to the people of Queensland. I relocated here 1 year ago where I ran a successful Newborn photography business in Craigieburn, Melbourne. I specialise in Newborn photography but also offer Maternity, Baby and Cake Smash sessions.

It was not easy to pack up and say goodbye to everyone and everything I worked so hard for but it had to be done, a work relocation for my husband forced us to move and in December 2014 we did just that!

We moved to Mango Hill first to see if we liked the area before buying, after 2 months I knew this is where I would like to live so started to search for the right property to buy… 3 months later we still had not found the right one! So we expanded our search to include Murrumba Downs. A few days later we spotted one that had just come on the market, I arranged an inspection the next day and well it was perfect for what we need, so we brought it… 🙂

The room that was to be my studio needed work, a lot of work to bring out it’s full potential. Early November we started the renovation. It took just over 2 weeks to do, we did all the work ourselves. Other than photography I am a keen DIY’er and love a challenge 🙂 Of course I had help from my amazing husband Isak who did a fabulous job of laying the floor boards! The rest was pretty much all me… 🙂

I pulled up all the old carpet, ripped out the shelves in the cupboard, pulled off all the old skirting, replaced the old door, put in another new door and door frame where there was once just a walk through, painted the walls, added new modern skirting plus installed a split system (this was done by a professional!)

Here are some of the before, during and after photos.

I actually forgot to take proper photos with my camera of the before so mobile phone uploads had to do.

So above are what I have of the before and during photos.

Below are my finished studio photos! The studio is now nice, bright and modern looking with robes to store all my props, I will admit that is not all of the props you see, all my headband, bonnets and wraps are stored inside the draws and the door next to the wardrobes leads to another room where all my backdrops, lighting and more bigger props are stored… I didn’t want to clutter my new studio hehe 🙂

My walls are looking a little bare, I need to place an order for some new canvases really soon plus there will be a sample hands and feet sculpture frame added to the wall by the talented Alicia from Casting Keepsakes Brisbane North in which I offer complimentary photos to all her clients 3D sculpture frames.

This photo shows the wardrobe doors off just to see the range of props there is on offer, further down the doors have been put on.

New studio Murrumba Downs Northside of Brisbane

 

Welcome! My name is Kylie and I am a passionate and experienced Newborn Baby Photographer based in Brisbane’s North!

Snugglebug Studios may be new to Brisbane but I am no stranger to Newborn Photography having run a successful

Newborn studio in Melbourne, I relocated here in late 2014.

With more than 6 years professional experience and having photographed more than 200 Newborn babies I have also participated

in 3 photography workshops learning the art from some of Australia’s best Newborn photographers in the industry!

 

Hello there, it’s been a while since I’ve posted. I recently made a big move interstate to Sunny Queensland and after searching high and low for the right property we purchased one in Murrumba Downs a couple months ago which is on the North side of Brisbane.

I have a big space to set my studio up but it will take some time to renovate, it needs painting, new flooring, a shelving system put in place, a kitchenette added, furniture plus I need to style it up so it’s nice a cosy for my little newborn clients 🙂

Snugglebug Studios will remain closed until early 2016. When moving interstate, I decided to take some time off so I can settle my family in, so far all the kids are enjoying their new schools and have made lots of new friends. It was very hard for them (and me!) to say goodbye to everything they knew back in Melbourne.

The weather is beautiful up here, even in winter it’s sunny almost everyday, every now and then I check the weather for back home and well I feel sorry for all my friends having to deal with a high temperature of only 9 degrees! Yep, that’s Melbourne for ya! Apart from the weather, It really is a beautiful city, I do miss it very much.

I will post updates of my studio on Facebook as it takes shape, so if you are not a liker pop on over to my FB page and hit the “like” button to be kept upto date with what’s happening. 🙂

Pregnancy timeline

Pregnancy timeline

We started Emma’s pregnancy timeline at 14 weeks, we did another session at 18 weeks then the rest were 6 weeks apart.

This is Emma’s fourth child, she has 3 little boys and at the 20 week scan found out she was having a little GIRL!

On June 18th 2013, Mackeely Kate was born weighing 9lb 4oz!

I enjoy doing the pregnancy timelines, I really wish they were around several years ago so I could have attempted to do my own!

Here is Emma’s completed pregnancy timeline! Such a fabulous keepsake to have!! 🙂

Miss G is one!

Today I met bright and bubbly Miss G! So so adorable and boy did she love her cake!! Mum wanted a cherry theme so off on a vist to spotlight I went in search of cherry fabric to make a bunting 🙂

On the day we couldn’t have cherries on the cake as planned as mum was told the glaze would stain the icing…. so jaffa balls had to do!

She looked so adorable dressed all in red with little shoes and bow to match!

Thank you for choosing Snugglebug Studios to capture your little ones first birthday! I look forward to seeing you all again later in the year!

Here are just some of the many gorgeous shots from her cake smash session! Enjoy! – Kylie x
