About / The Studio

Hey there, I'm Celeste.

Earthy tones, Rustic homes,
Chai spiced tea and Forest Spring leaves,
Beaches, Rock pools, Family time,
These are a few of My favourite things.

Wife, Mother, Friend.

I am Celeste, and along with my husband we have created Precious Pearl Photography a brand that speaks for itself but in three words; rustic, personal and authentic. Leading AIPP Accredited Newborn Photographer in Adelaide. In essence you’ve discovered my ‘Art Book’. I have been photographing families since 2009 and each year my love for what I do grows more and more, nothing would thrill me more than to create for your family works of art that you will cherish for years to come.

We are a Home Studio Based Photography Business in Marino just minutes from Westfield Marion and Brighton areas. If you are a bit of a hike away from us; please don’t stress! Did you know a bit of a car ride settles a newborn babe and often means they are nice and soothed ready for us to photograph their adorable little face.

Thanks for clicking here to read more! let me tell you some things you don’t know!

My Story: If I’m not glued to my computer screen or jotting down crazy scribbles in my note book for my next ‘big idea’ or on a deep brainstorming frenzy till 12am.. then I’m doing what I love to do most, cuddling the kids and chatting deep with my hubby, getting into the sun and outdoors and exploring walking tracks and swimming in the big deep ocean. I’ve almost always got my big mug filled with tea, a song in my heart or an informative podcast on my playlist, and I love chocolate, fitness and wearing my pj's whenever possible!

I am a very keepsake, archival, sentimental type of girl, which shows in the way I run my brand, from perfect little products to big mind blowing wall art, there’s always something to touch, see and relish in my studio and around my home. I live to create the ultimate end to a beautiful story being told each moment I take a breath. It all started when I was born, and so will it start when you birth your little one into the world, a new puzzle will begin to unfold, a new story, a life to behold.

The Deep Stuff: Life can get “oh so busy”, and putting things off seems to be a new trend in our culture, but if we can all just stop and take a moment to remember what matters most and what we truly want to be looking at everyday; isn’t it the lives and people around us who are most close to us that we want to wake up to every morning? Seeing their faces upon the walls of our homes, filling our hearts with love and appreciation every time we look upon them. We all know that “Empty Walls Never Get Noticed” and it’s all about Making home - home - wether we rent or own. It’s all in what you make it to be.

There’s a real sense where our family becomes yours as I open my home studio to you and create something truly real. Amidst the chaos of being a wife, a mum, raising a family, work life, and all the little things that just need to be done everyday, I am on par with how you feel and how easy it can be to forget to relax and celebrate this beautiful thing we call family. I ask myself daily “Which of my photographs is my favourite?”... and the answer is always this.... “The one I will take tomorrow!” I would love that photo to be yours! Let us stop time together, because little ones are not that little for very long. Every day is beautiful.

For Mums: We are totally mum friendly, newborn sessions are a relaxed 2.5 - 3 hours, you as a mum and dad can literally sit, relax, have tea and coffee and nibbles and you don't need to lift a finger due to us working with an assistant, we really prefer to let you feel like a Queen and King for a day, after all you've just brought a little life into the world and that's a big achievement.

Not one of my collections will leave you empty handed, each one has been carefully put together to include something tangible and lasting, for this reason while we do provide digital images, we also wouldn't want for you to be on your way home simply with a USB of dossier. We work hard to create art work, our goal and passion is to have a final product that will look precious on your wall. From framed pieces to big and little prints, we have something timeless for everyone. This is why we ensure each set and colour scheme used will match your home, nursery and living room.

Safety is paramount to us, therefore we always make sure to have our hands on your baby at all times when posing them in difficult poses such as the 'froggy pose' or in other places we will actually edit your baby into a digital composite that would instead put your baby at risk if actually performed, such as a hanging basket. It's important to us that you feel absolutely confident about using us as your photographers.

We would love to be a part of your journey and can not wait to meet you.
