About Imy & Me Photography

Welcome to Imy & Me Photography. We are a portrait photography studio located in Ourimbah on the Central Coast of NSW. We offer Maternity, Newborn, Children & Family Portraits on the Central Coast and surrounds. We offer both studio and outdoor portraits.

I am Kirsty Maree.
My passion is photographing children and their families. I have been capturing magical moments for families since 2014. I have attended training workshops in the field of Maternity, Newborn and Fine Art Children’s portraits with some of the world’s best portrait photographers.

The magic in children’s eyes, the innocence of their personalities and cheekyness in their hearts all inspire my work. At Imy & Me Photography you can choose between whimsical portraits, fine art portraits, or candid portraits.

In all sessions I will capture both the little and the big details. Your gallery will include images that capture your children’s size, their curls, their eye lashes, their finger and toes, as well as the love, connection and bonds that occur within famillies.

Imy & Me photo sessions always go at the pace of the children. My goal is to have fun, create some memories, and capture the moments for you to remember in years to come.

Things have been very quiet at Imy & Me Photography lately, by choice. My family has been faced with some major health incidents in 2019, including the loss of my Dad. So I have been focusing on my family. I don't usually share personal information on this page, but I have a message to get out to you all.

This year has taught me that you just never know what is going to happen today, tomorrow or next week. You just never know if someone you love will be here tomorrow.

That being said, I want all of the Mum's reading this post to think about when they last had photos taken, that had them in the photos.

Women are our own worst critics, and I often hear women say "when I lose weight, when my hair grows a bit more, when my kids are older and behave better". I'm here to tell you, DON'T WAIT. Your kids don't see the weight on you, they don't see short hair, they see their mum. They see their first love. So Mum's- GET IN THE PHOTOS.

Last weekend I carried out a family portrait session on my own family. I wanted to share this image of me and my beautiful Mum. Neither of us have had family photos taken since I was a child. Neither of us love having our photo taken, but I LOVE this image. Why, because it has my Mum is in it.

So, the message is GET IN THE PHOTO'S MUMMA'S

Beautiful photos and beautiful words ❀️❀️

Such a gorgeous photo... and a beautiful reminder... πŸ’œ

That is a beautiful photo of you & Trish. And it is true you never know what will happen tomorrow, let alone today. We had family photos done in February 2016 & Graham was refusing to go but with a lot of pushing he did & we are so glad we had them done because a year later we didnt have him. All the best, love to you, Mum & your sisters & families. I hope to have a catch up when I go down for Melissa's baby arrival.

Love you both very much. Beautiful photo

Truly beautiful πŸ’– xxx

What a truly stunning photo of two remarkable women and what a priceless message to be shared. πŸ’œπŸ’œ

Love it .. beautiful message

Such a beautiful pic of two awesome women! Sending love to you both xxx

What a true message this is! Thanks for the reminder lovely! Beautiful photo x

Great message. That’s also a beautiful photo Kirsty!

Thank you to everyone who has already commented and who have shared this post, I just want to clarify though that my intent of this post is not to increase bookings. My intent was to highlight that too often Mum’s are behind their iPhone not in-front of it. I am really guilty of this one because I am always behind the camera. So share away but only to get the message out.

Beautiful pic & very well said Kirsty Dyball. Would definitely like to book in for some family portraits in the coming months xx sending big hugs your way πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—

Sweet Charlotte came to visit me on Saturday for her 6 month milestone portraits. She smiled so much during her family portraits, that she just had to have a little nap to finish off her session.

Grace & Lochie it was great to see you all again. I can't believe how much she has grown and changed in 3 months. I'm looking forward to seeing you again in another 3 months, to capture her 9 month milestone portraits. Lochie it was lovely to meet your family too.

Intereted in our 1st year package? PM for further details or visit our website on www.imyandme.com.au

Introducing Nathaniel, 9 weeks new.

This handsome boy made me work extra extra hard. He was WIDE awake and wanted to see everything that was going on. But he has the best head control, and gave us this extra adorable image.

Michelle & Trevor Bof, thanks for choosing Imy & Me Photography to capture Nathaniel's portraits. It has been lovely to spend some time with your little family. I look forward to sharing the rest of his gallery with you soon.

Sweet Eddie's Cake Smash & Splash Portrait session.

Eddie was a little hesitant at first, but with encouragement from Mum & Dad, Eddie got in to the cake.

I think that possibly Eddie's Dad enjoyed the session more than Eddie. Dan did also leave the studio as messy as Eddie in this photo.

Thank you so much Kirsty. We had so much fun doing the session and the photos are absolutely stunning. Although Eddie didn’t want to get stuck into the cake, you made it look like he did. Thanks for the hot tip to wear daggy clothes. We were covered in icing πŸ˜‚

This little sweetie was a supermodel yesterday. She slept, drank, slept. But she had me fooled. As soon as her session ended she decided to show me just how loud she could cry.

Sara & Stephen congratulations on the birth of Scarlett and thank you for choosing Imy & Me Photography to capture her Newborn Portraits. She is pure perfection.

Cotton makes me feel like I am home.

I spent the first 9 years of my life around cotton farms, in far West NSW, in a tiny country town called Wee Waa. I remember my Dad taking me in a huge cotton picker one day, and I felt like a giant up there harvesting the cotton. The freshly made huge bails fascinated me and I couldn't believe the size of them. So when I noticed that cotton stalks were back in fashion I just had to add them to the Imy & Me Photography prop stash.

Cotton is raw and fresh and soft and beautiful, just like the tiny people I get to capture. A match made in heaven, one could say.

Another from Sweet Jaxn Potter's Gallery..........

Who doesn't love nature and baby. As much as I love extravagant floral images I also love the natural sets that allow the baby to shine.

Introducing Jaxn.....9 Days New.

This little man was in a little hurry to meet his family and had bit of a stay in hospital. But he was a superstar for his newborn session. He does however, already have a very efficient cranky face, and he isn't afraid to use it.
