Be by Sumathi
I’m Sumathi, a mum of two and a family and newborn photographer based in Lane Cove in Sydney’s North Shore.
My photography journey started when I was a teenager. I carried my camera with me at all times, because to me, every moment was worth capturing. As a result, I now have a cupboard in my home dedicated to storing boxes and boxes of photographs!
In 2009, I decided to turn my passion into a career, and I began photographing the children of my friends, friends of friends and, soon enough, word-of-mouth referrals.
I love 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, and I feel honoured each and every time I am invited into a family’s life to capture them.
