Making Memories

Welcome to Kellie Johnsson Photography

I’m so pleased you’re here. I’m Kellie and I’m chief baby whisperer, master cuddler and the smiling face behind the camera.

Welcome to my website! I’m an international award-winning photographer and I specialise in Brisbane newborn photography, maternity photography, and family photography.

About me

So, I have a confession. I love newborn babies! I love their newness, their smallness and even their newborn scent.

And for as long as I can remember, I’ve been obsessed with newborn babies. Even as a young girl I was fascinated with their smallness. I’d spend hours completely enthralled with their delicate features.

As I got older, my obsession with newborn babies grew. The maternal tug on the heartstrings was so strong, and I yearned for the day I’d have babies of my own.

So, when my babies finally arrived, I was enraptured by them. I would spend hours just marvelling at their perfection. It was their tiny newborn baby features that fascinated me.

Their fingers. Their toes Those sweet pouty lips. And their chubby cheeks. All the squishy, snuggly goodness that changes so quickly!

I didn’t want to forget a single moment.

What I do


So, I decided photographing newborns was the perfect career choice for me. And over the past 8 years I’ve photographed 914 newborn babies throughout Brisbane in my studio in Westlake 4074.

Placing top 15 Australian peoples choice awards

I’ve captured the beautiful connection within the family circle and those first tender moments with new parents. Because these moments are your permanent legacy and they’re worth preserving. I create stunning albums, canvases and prints for your wall. And these photographs aren’t just for you. They’re for your children and future grandchildren.

These are your stories.

Because your journey to parenthood doesn’t start with the arrival of your baby, does it? It begins months before with your growing belly, your glowing skin, and the fluttering movements as your baby grows inside. Pregnancy is such a magical experience. So, it makes perfect sense to document your miraculous journey to motherhood with a maternity photography session.

All maternity photography sessions are held at a secluded grassy area in Westlake, south-west of Brisbane.

Maternity photography is ideal around 36 weeks when your belly is gloriously round. I offer a range of stunning maternity gowns for clients to create dramatic maternity portraits. As a preferred photographer with Mama rentals I am able to offer 15% off any gown hired through Mama Rentals


Maternity photography is a beautiful keepsake of your pregnancy and those last few weeks before your baby arrives.

Once you baby has morphed into a cheeky toddler, it’s the perfect time to update your family photos. I’ve photographed 203 families in Brisbane and each family session was fun, relaxed, and enjoyable. Even the Dads have fun!

All family sessions are held outside, in a secluded grassy area in Westlake, south-west of Brisbane. And don’t worry if your kids are high-energy or your husband dislikes having photos. Family sessions are a candid account of you and your family interacting together.

So, even if the kids are going crazy, we’ll have some fun together!

All sessions are relaxed, fun and are designed to capture your family’s unique character, sense of humour and personality.

Newborn baby girl

Received my photos from Kellie today and I couldn’t be happier!!!! Can’t wait to get them up on the wall and send pics to all the family. Kellie was very professional on the shoot and is a complete natural when it came to handling and settling our little girl.

We had our 7 day old newborn photographed with Kellie, and she was so patient and took the time to capture the perfect shots. She really does have a way with babies. Her props and sets where so beautiful and the final pictures where amazing with some great character shots of our newborn. We will definitely be back for the next one.

Kellie is an amazing photographer and artist. Her studio gives you a comfortable and relaxed feeling and it was such a joyous experience watching her work. Kellie has so much attention to detail and makes sure everything is perfect before taking each photo, while making sure your baby is safe and comfortable the entire time. I am so glad I had Kellie photograph my baby girl and I am absolutely thrilled with the photos. I highly recommend Kellie!

My newborn photography studio is in my home in Westlake, 19 kilometres south-west of Brisbane.

The newborn studio is a comfortable, homely, and relaxed space, specifically designed for parents and babies. So, parents can relax on the couch, read a book or catch-up on their social media while I work my newborn magic.

And I offer a range of newborn props and accessories and create beautiful photography to suit all tastes, styles, and home décor.

Honestly? Because I love taking care of people.

And I love newborn babies. But most importantly, I want my families to enjoy the whole newborn and family photography experience. Because I’ve been there, and I remember how tough it was.

My babies were majorly fussy, reflux babies, and I suffered from mild post-natal depression. So, I understand just how tough it is! Being a mum to newborn baby is messy. And it’s hard, it’s exhausting, and you question everything!

But if I can provide memories of the beautiful times and bring a smile to a new mum’s face?

Well then, my job is done.
