The Artist

Hello and welcome!  Thank you for stopping by!
I'm Jade and I am a Maternity, Newborn and Children's photographer on the Gold Coast.

I also provide personal branding/headshot services and particularly love doing commercial/collaborative events and projects with other amazing business women in the baby and children's industry, too!  

So, you've come here to learn more about Jade Read Photography and the services I can offer you - read on and see if we are a good fit for each other - I would love to work with you!

Establishing my portrait studio in 2011, I have been a photographer in the baby and children's industry for over 6 years, photographing over 350 precious newborn babies, children, families and a lot of beautiful mums and women in business!

The pregnancy, baby and children's industry is where my heart is, and I will never get tired of it.  It's my work, my world and where I belong.

With Love

From the new baby fuzz, to her first steps.  From the tiny fingernails to his first steps. Those first moments and milestones that we celebrate with happiness and delight too quickly turn to faded memories ...

These are the moments that make your heart overflow with love and will be forever imprinted in your soul, and though our memories will one day fade, our photographs will be there - reminding us of what matters the most!

It will be an honour to be your family photographer, and watch alongside you, photographing your children as they grow and change through the years.

Offering complimentary, phone/online/skype/zoom support, wardrobe and styling advice, planning consultations and in-home Gallery Reveal and Ordering Appointments, you only need to come to the studio ONCE, instead of two or even three times like some portrait studios.

It is my aim to make your experience with me - especially new mums with newborn babies - as stress-free, easy and convenient as possible.
