Ellie Dean Photography offers a full service, luxury portrait experience. We understand how overwhelming starting a family, adding a new member to your family, or running a household with small children is – so when you book with Ellie Dean Photography absolutely everything is taken care of for you and you are included in every part of the process to create a custom experience just for your family!

We strive to create beautiful, timeless images that you can treasure for years to come, and preserve them with quality heirlooms for future generations to enjoy.

Newborn photoshoots are best booked in the first two weeks of your baby’s birth, as this stage is the sleepiest and allows us to capture those calm, sleepy, beautiful images. Ellie Dean Photography is trained in newborn photography and baby first aid certified to ensure the safe posing and photography of your precious little ones.

If you miss a newborn shoot (the newborn bubble is beautiful, but an exhausting haze, don’t worry I understand!) don’t despair! We can capture absolutely gorgeous images of your babe at almost any age in the first year, cherish their first cheeky smiles with a baby, sitter, cake smash or, of course, family session!

Our photography studio is located in beautiful Bacchus Marsh in the West of Melbourne, only 45 minutes from the CBD, and services all surrounding suburbs, such as Ballarat, Geelong, Gisborne and Werribee.

I cannot recommend Ellie more highly! We had a baby photo session for our newborn. She had everything prepared (including baby wipes which we forgot), and my husband and I just got to sit back and relax while the shoot went on. She was so in tune with baby, and the finished product was amazing - beautiful photos for us to cherish!! Highly recommend for anyone considering a baby photographer 🙂

I am absolutely stoked with our family photos! We have already used Ellie twice this year. We had a maternity family photo session and a newborn family photo session. I’d highly recommend Ellie, as she was super friendly and made us feel really comfortable during our session. Ellie’s turn around to get our chosen photos to us was very quick as well. I couldn’t be happier.

Ellie took product photos for my candle business and they were amazing! She was so great to deal with, extremely professional and goes above and beyond. I gave her a whole heap of props to work with and she was so great at arranging them and putting together an amazing set. I am sooooo happy with the final product 😍 Thanks so much Ellie! Xxx

Had Ellie take my headshots for my business, I was absolutely in awe of the photos. She made the process of getting the photos so easy and for someone that hates their photo being taken I’m super happy with the images I’ve received, highly recommend!
