Jade Read - Your family and newborn photographer on the Gold Coast

Jade Read Photography


Hi, I'm Jade!

I'm so glad you are here and that you are taking a bit of time to read about the studio and what you can expect from your experience with me.

As a mum to four high-energy kiddos, all boys, my house is full of noise! Alongside the laughter and laundry is my husband who’s been so supportive of my business and literally a God-send to my sanity! We have no pets just yet, but one day we would love to have a bearded dragon.

We are a scouting family, and spend a good amount of our time between scout camps and family camping as well. I love seeing my kids out enjoying our natural world and the memories we get to make together are priceless!

I also love photographing the most treasured and adored people in your world too! And creating beautiful custom artwork designed to suit your family, home and décor in classic, simplistic and elegant style.

There is nothing more precious and amazing than the miracle of pregnancy, the gift of life and the love of family. These are the memories we will cherish in our golden years, and having these moments photographed will ensure that your memories remain for generations.

Over 1,200 families have chosen to have their memories captured with me and in collaboration with the beautiful local partnerships I have on the Gold Coast with the Gold Coast Private Hospital and other antenatal and maternity services, rest assured you are in my safe and creative hands.

Together, we will create timeless artwork of the most treasured people in your world with a friendly, unique experience.  I'm here with you every step of the way, so book in a session with me, your Gold Coast pregnancy, new-born and family photographer, I can't wait to share this with you.



Step 1.   Book your portrait session.

To book in for your portrait session - whether it be for a new-born or family session - all you need to do is head to the contact page, complete the form and email me for available dates for your session. I never take longer than 2 days to respond to emails!

All new-born sessions are held in our Helensvale studio and are booked on weekdays subject to availability. All outdoor/on-location sessions are held on Saturdays only and your session time will be different depending on the time of year, the weather and the location.  Saturday appointments are very limited, so please be sure to book well in advance to avoid disappointment.

Step 2.   Pre-consultation.

Upon booking, you will be sent a Pre-session Questionnaire and Portrait Contract to sign as part of the booking process. Once we've received your completed questionnaire and signed your contract, you’re all booked in!

We'll guide you through the entire experience so you feel confident in your session, your choices, the colours and style you are wanting and that all the photographs you are wanting are captured for you.

Have a browse through the products and wall art available through the studio for ideas and inspiration on how you want to display your memories in your home!

Step 3.  Your portrait session.

The day is here!  All you need to do now is turn up with bub and relax while we take care of the rest!  Occasionally, I may ask you to hold a blanket or stay near your baby for safety while I adjust and work around your bub.

But mostly, it's about creating beautiful memories for your family, so enjoy!  I highly recommend and encourage family photos with mum and dad, so be prepared for a family photo.  If you have any special heirloom items, we will make sure to photograph them with your bub and make this a fun experience for everyone.

 Ordering your photographs.

Straight away, after your portrait session, we will look at your photographs! You will be able to view your images and touch and feel all the product samples.

I'll be on-hand to answer all of your questions and help you make the best decisions for your family home.  Albums, Wall Art, prints - it's all personal preference about how you want to enjoy your portraits in the years to come.  Having me available to answer questions, means you'll be confident in your decisions, and when the time comes to hang your artwork in your home, you'll know it is going to look perfect.

Your custom designed artwork and albums will be ordered once payment is received and within 2 - 6 weeks, depending on the products you purchased, your items will be ready.  All Wall Art comes ready to hang and display in your home straight away.  

Step 4.  Collection of your Artwork.

Once I've received your artwork from the lab, I check it over to ensure it's in perfect condition, and then let you know it’s ready for collection. 

It's always amazing to see your home come to life with your family memories being showcased!

When you have installed it, please take a photo with your new artwork and send it in, email: jade@jadereadphotography.com.au or text me: 0423 372 338.
