About Kapture Photography

Kapture Photography is a home-based studio, natural light studio built specifically to accommodate newborns and babies in their first year. The studio was relocated to Rowville shortly after the birth of Karen's daughter in 2011.
Karen has been photographing babies and families for over a decade. Because she specialises in newborns, Karen knows precisely when to move and when to touch, and she is wonderfully gentle with each precious life that enters her studio.

All parents will have an extensive selection of hats and blankets of different colours and textures to choose from in order to create a newborn session perfectly tailored to their unique taste and style.

The studio is set up to feel like home, so families can come in, have a coffee and a chat, and relax on the super-comfortable couch. Many parents often even manage to have a little nap while Karen is busy photographing their baby, secure in the knowledge that infant safety is her number-one priority.

From Karen

Love what I do

I Love what I do

Anyone who knows me at all knows that I love babies! They are so innocent and precious…..and scary as well! They are the most vulnerable little beings, and how anyone could not love them is beyond me.

When I get a chubba bubba about 8 months old – squeals – LOVE!

When I’m not photographing or marketing, I’m playing with my two kids who keep me busy 🙂

I love trashy romantic books (I know I know) which proberbly explains why I was already dreaming of weddings when I was 10 years old. I can’t help but think everyone deserves the romance in those books and should get to be a princess even if just for one day!

I'm looking forward to meeting all of my future babies. And who knows, mayby someday I'll even be able to photograph them as brides in 30 years. Now wouldn't that be romantic!

Hi, I'm Karen. I am passionate about helping people create something amazing by showcasing their beautiful families through the art of photography. I use my image design, photography skills, creative experience to add value to my client's lives. I have two beautiful children who are full of life and busy!!!. They drive me nuts sometimes but I love them to bits.


Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured FOREVER…
It remembers little things, long after you have FORGOTTEN EVERYTHING.
