Be By Sumathi

Sumathi, a mum of two is a family and newborn photographer based in Lane Cove in Sydney’s North Shore.

She loves photographing parents-to-be, newborns, babies, children and their families, creating images that best capture their spirit, personality and inner essence.

The love and anticipation in the eyes of an expectant mum, those first few days of a new baby’s life, the innocence and curiosity of infants just starting to move, toddlers with their mischievous smiles, and older children discovering the simple wonders of the world – these are the memories worth holding onto forever.
