• Photos are a great way to capture those special moments in your life. I have a strong love and passion for photography and I cater to those wanting newborn baby, maternity or children photography in Perth. I am an award winning portrait photographer and an accredited member of the Australian Institute of Professional Photography AIPP.

    I love creating memories with clients to ensure they are left with images they will treasure for years to come. I enjoy capturing unique images for all of my customers and am thrilled to have return clients. Perth families are graced with amazing locations which is why I work both out of my studio in Ocean Reef and on-location.

    While my main focus is on portraits, I do take on other projects as well. Simply let me know what you are after and I will be happy to accommodate.

    I hope you enjoy looking through the site. If you have any questions or would like to make a booking, please contact me for more information.

    I look forward to working with you.


Baby Jacob, 11 days old | Perth Newborn Baby Photography

Meet Jacob.

Jacob has three big sisters and they were so excited to have a baby brother. I think Daddy was very pleased as well. He was so cute and so good for his session. He opened his eyes a few times as if to check where he was and then just settled right down again. I don’t think I heard him make a sound while he was here.

Enjoy your preview:)

Maja 34 weeks pregnant | Perth Maternity Beach photography

Meet the most beautiful family. Here is Maja, Jamie and the cutest little Makayla!

We had a great time on the beach and I so enjoyed photographing this little family and in a few days I will post baby Talia’s preview as well:)

Enjoy your preview, Maja and family


Maja Divjakoski - Thank u so much Anja once again! These are amazing and we are so happy with them. Your the best :) xx
