    I recently had a newborn shoot done via Peta and would definitely recommend her to anyone in the future.
    Peta was gentle, patient and overall very thorough with capturing photos and memories of not only my daughter, but of my son with her as well.
    Will definitely return in the future. 😊

  • Chloe

    We recently had the privilege of having our newborn photoshoot with peta, she was absolutely amazing with our little girl, she was so patient and caring with Cleo and made us all feel so comfortable. Her home studio is so stunning and thought out and was even nice and warm for bub. Petas work is phenomenal, she captured the most beautiful delicate photos that we will treasure forever. We cannot thank Peta enough for taking these special photos for us. I would 110% recommend peta and will be going back for all my future photos

  • Emma Colles

    All our newborn photos were perfect. Working with children can be challenging and Peta is fantastic she is calm and flexible and the results are amazing. During the session Peta makes you feel comfortable and works with you to capture exactly what you’re after. We wouldn’t trust anyone else to capture this special time. Thank you so much Peta for the wonderful experience, your expertise and warmth in making us feel so welcome and comfortable and managing, after all, to somehow successfully capture even some smiles. We certainly would recommend ‘Peta Nikel Photography’ to anyone wanting to capture lasting memories.

    Thank you and warmest regards,

    Ben, Emma, Willow & Harvey

  • Amy Dalton

    I’ve followed Peta Nikel Photography for quite some time now and am in absolute awe of her photography skills when capturing newborns and new families. Due to some complex issues with the birth of my daughter last November I was unable to contact Peta to book in some newborn photos but I am hoping to organise some 9-10 month old or 1 year photos as I feel she captures bubs beautifully and naturally without all the pomp and affair of props. Friends have highly recommended her to me and I can say without an absolute doubt I will be going to her for all of my family photography now and in the near future.

  • Zoe Dobson

    Peta was brilliant with our maternity and newborn session. I was in absolute awe of her patience with our daughter Aria and was simply blown away by the end results. I’d love to get the opportunity to have another session with our soon to be 1 year old to capture more treasured memories.

  • Jess

    My family and I are repeat customers of Peta Nikel Photography. There’s no one in the industry we trust more to capture those precious family moments.

    We have done a newborn session (with another one booked for our upcoming arrival) and a seasonal special session also. Images from these sessions are treasured beyond belief.

    Not only are the images captured absolutely beautiful, but the product quality is second to none. We have a boxed frame canvas that takes pride of place in our home, and a heirloom album from our daughters newborn session.

    Peta puts you at ease in front of her camera in her beautiful cozy studio, ensuring the best outcome for photos!

    Can not recommend highly enough.

  • Bree ridgers

    Absolutely amazing! Couldn’t recommend her enough!

  • Mel

    Absolutely amazing photographer! Peta makes everyone feel so comfortable and relaxed and the results speak for themselves!!!

  • Nicole Jacobs

    Peta has photographed all three of our babies and we couldn’t be happier.

    Not only are our photos stunning, Peta was also gentle and took her time with our babies.

    Her studio was warm and relaxed so much so that our boisterous 4 year old fell asleep.

    We love Peta’s work and have recommended her to family and friends.

  • Kayla

    Peta was amazing. She did our newborn photos for our first last year. The day of I had mastitis and was exhausted. Peta took control and was able to tend to and settle my baby all while captioning the most beautiful photos of our little girl. The photos were better than I could have imagined. The whole experience just blew me away. We are expecting our second in December and I will 100% be coming back.

  • Rebecca Williamson

    I used Peta for my maternity shoot. She made me feel so beautiful and I’ll cherish the photos of my last pregnancy forever.

  • Hannah Pearce

    The absolute best photos and beautiful service, my family and I felt super comfortable! Would definitely recommend!

  • Molly

    Peta did an incredible job capturing my two under two! Our prints are gorgeous and something I will treasure forever.

  • Sarah M

    Peta has done all of our photography for our 3 children, including newborn, cake smash and Christmas photos. There is nobody else I would go to, her work is incredibly impressive and on a personal note – Peta is warm and welcoming and has a magical touch which seems to calm babies so nicely! Everything is so professional but feels personal too. Every little fine detail of the finished product make all the difference, and why I always recommend Peta to everyone. This is the place to go for the entire experience!

  • Shenyce

    Peta is fabulous to work with. So easy going. I can’t wait to have future photos done with my little family as it grows. Her photos are timeless.

  • Justina

    I had my first session with Peta, a week after my little bundle was born. I can assure you my anxiety was through the roof. I knew I had to express milk there and generally a new environment while having my pictures taken was new to me.

    I was so nervous until I walked in her door!
    Peta done a beautiful job of making sure I was comfortable and she done it with ease. This new daunting experience became a beautiful opportunity to remember my little bundle of joy within minutes!

    When I went back to look at the photos, I wasn’t ready for how beautiful they would look. Peta displayed them to me in such a way that I was crying. Such happy tears full of joy and appreciation!

    Receiving the digital copies of the photos was amazing. It was a great way to see the photos and have the opportunity to share them on social media with my family and friends!

    Collecting the prints! The work that Peta puts into the prints and how they are packaged is amazing! It felt so luxurious and i felt so proud to show them off.

    Peta goes above and beyond from the first point of communication to collecting the prints.

    I’ve already started recommending Peta to other mothers and expecting mothers and will continue to do so!

    I couldn’t recommend Peta enough!!

  • Emma Hazelwood

    Peta was so gentle with us all right from the start. She is highly organised and a great communicator, especially in the lead up. She was kind and patient with our older boys and kept things feeling calm throughout the photo session. I’m so grateful for her patience and skill in capturing images during such a precious time. The products and process were excellent and we are so delighted.

  • Brooke & Brendon

    We would highly recommend Peta to anyone who is looking to capture the most heartwarming photos of their little one! Not only can you see in her photos she is an experienced photographer but her way with newborns and how comfortable she makes you feel as a parent is unbeatable. Peta is also extremely flexible and understands how unpredictable newborns can be. With the surprise arrival of our little boy she was still able to reschedule our photoshoot so we didn’t miss out. We honestly couldn’t choose between the images in the end so we just had to get them all! We have no regrets with choosing Peta for our newborn photoshoot and will definitely be booking with her again in the future!

  • Reema Thapa

    Choosing Peta for our maternity and newborn photoshoot has been our best decision. She is absolutely amazing in terms of photography but also very easy and flexible with personalised requests. Each photo she took was equally beautiful and exactly what we had hoped for. Thank you for giving us the best memories through your lens.

  • Naomi Monks

    I loved our photos from the photo shoot with our baby girl. Peta made it very comfortable and easygoing. I can’t wait to get back there with our new baby due in April!!.

  • Eliza Oates

    We’ve had the pleasure of Peta taking our newborn photos for our last three children. Peta is absolutely incredible. Her studio is warm and welcoming and she made us all feel very comfortable. The way she was able to get our other children’s attention and ensure she captured photos where all of our family were looking was nothing short of a miracle. Peta ensures the whole experience is really special and I have always felt very comfortable knowing that our babies were in very safe hands as she posed them. She has captured so many special photos for our family over the years and we are so very grateful.

  • Hayley Adams

    Peta has a beautiful style of photography and incredible talent. We had our newborn photos done when our little girl was just 8 days old, and the entire session we were made to feel so comfortable. The photos are perfect 💗

  • Meegan

    We started off with Peta 5 years ago with some maternity photos and our first newborn Arlo and we wouldn’t have chosen anyone else. We have recently welcomed our second beautiful little boy to our family with some freshly new family photos by the lovely Peta. We would absolutely recommend Peta to anyone that wants to feel very comfortable in the environment she shares with many families to capture those special moments and memories she’s one talented lady with such a passion in her job which makes her one of the best gifted photographers I’ve come across and will continue to recommend her to my family and friends.

  • Jodie-lee

    You can tell why Peta does what she does. She is amazing and extremely talented! She has now captured both of my babies, Who we’re not easy but Peta made me feel so comfortable when they were being fussy, She was so calm and so gentle with them and we got beautiful photos to cherish forever. I cannot recommend her enough.

  • Amber Robinson

    Peta always makes me and my family feel relaxed and comfortable in her studio! I will forever treasure the photos she captured for us. She is so good at what she does. Her passion and skill is always second to none.

  • Vicky

    Such a wonderful, kind and beautiful person is Peta. Peta has a true affinity with Babies and makes tired Mums and Dad feel instantly at ease. The true magic then happens as she takes your precious baby and dresses and then puts them to sleep, no rushing, for the most special and amazing photos to be taken. Peta has photographed both of our girls. We highly recommend her!

  • Rachel Fox

    Peta has taken photos of both my boys numerous times and has always been outstanding. She is absolutely amazing at what she does and has an amazing eye for detail. Peta is such a lovely lady and is so warm and welcoming, just makes you feel at ease and comfortable. Always extremely happy with the finished result.

  • Jasmine

    We recently had our second newborn shoot with Peta and it was nothing short of perfection. Peta was able to capture such special and memories that will last a life time of both our daughters together. Peta is always so patient, kind and comforting towards our daughters and we wouldn’t go to anyone else. Thank you Peta for another amazing experience! We cannot wait to come and see you again soon.

  • Joclyn & Stuart

    We had our maternity and newborn photos with Peta & we couldn’t be happier!!! There’s no doubt in our mind that the experience of working with Peta & the amazing final products were the absolute best for us! Peta went above & beyond to set the scene with personalised outfits, props & a calm atmosphere to make sure that we had exactly what we wanted before we even knew it. She made sure we knew what to expect on the day & at a time when we were still figuring out how to settle our baby, she knew exactly what to do to calm our son & get the perfect shots that we will cherish forever!

  • Tori Stevens

    Peta has been photographing our family since 2018, she has captured all three of our babies maternity, newborn, first birthday cake smash and Christmas shoots. Peta makes you feel completely comfortable and welcome as soon as she greets you from the door and walk in to her beautifully presented studio, right through until you leave in your car. Peta goes above and beyond during each photography session. We have always ended up with absolutely stunning images of our family that will last a life time.

  • Louisa Sahetapy

    Peta is amazing at what she does. She has taken photos for all 3 of our boys as babies, a family shoot and a maternity shoot. So 5 times in total! She makes the process easy and we have fun doing it. She has magical hands to calm the bubs and get the right shots. The end products are always beautiful and we have so many around the home. In fact, we’ve ordered 2 more large collage prints recently for our older boys as they were jealous their baby brother one was so much bigger and nicer.

  • Amy Ramshaw

    Peta’s work is incredible! We recently had her work with our little Olivia and she had me in tears when viewing the photos! They were absolutely perfect! Thank you so much Peta! We’ll forever treasure these photos! We’ll be back again in the future!

  • Rachael Bromfield

    Peta was absolutely amazing with our daughter and was so flexible when some postpartum issues meant I couldn’t make my original session. We have beautiful photos we will cherish forever and cannot thank her enough for the lovely atmosphere and dedication she had to capturing the perfect shots.

  • Tanya

    The newborn photographs Peta took of our daughter were absolutely stunning. Our family shots were perfect, everyone looked happy and relaxed. This is why we came back a second time for milestone and updated family photos. The second time was just as great as the first. Not only is Peta professional and friendly, but she makes you feel comfortable. She is really interested in exactly what you want and she aims to make the photographs special. I would recommend Peta Nikel Photography to anyone!

  • Lacey Marriott

    Peta was perfect! Our sessions was perfect, our photos are perfect. I could not be any more happier with our experience

  • Cate

    I have had photos done with Peta twice now and both times she was amazing, she works so quickly to get the perfect shots, which can’t be easy with wriggly children who want to do anything but sit still. Peta worked beautifully with my 2 year old who doesn’t like people and made the whole experience calm and relaxing. Honestly can’t recommend her enough!

  • Sahar McPherson

    Peta has not only photographed my first born, but most recently my second born. I didn’t hesitate in booking with Peta again. She’s amazing at what she does, and I couldn’t have been happier with both sets of photos.

  • Catherine

    I couldn’t recommend Peta highly enough. For someone who was apprehensive before the session, I instantly relaxed with Peta’s calm and friendly presence and cosy studio. I felt at ease handing over my week old baby to Peta and watching her work, it’s obvious that Peta has a gift with little ones and such an eye for detail in her incredible photography. I could not be happier with the photos Peta captured of my little girl, they are something I will cherish forever.

  • Renee

    Peta is amazing at what she does! Even with a baby who wasn’t making those sleepy newborn photos easy, and a toddler wanting to do her own thing, Peta’s calm nature, kindness and persistence captured the most beautiful images we’ll treasure for life. I cannot recommend Peta enough!

  • Isabella

    Peta was amazing as we had our very first new born session with our son! She made us all feel very welcomed and was so gentle and clam with our son! Our photos were absolutely beautiful! Highly recommend

  • Zoe Dobson

    Peta was absolutely brilliant with my daughter Aria who wasn’t the easiest baby to be photographed. Peta had so much patience and due to her calming nature she was able to capture some beautiful photos of Aria. Peta also photographed our maternity session and I was absolutely blown away. It was the first time I’ve ever felt truly beautiful. We will definitely use Peta in the future to photograph future additions to our family.

  • Tori barratt

    Peta is so talented at what she does with a wonderful, profession personality. Her little studio is beautiful and relaxing! I can’t recommend her enough!

  • Tanaya

    Peta was absolutely amazing! So welcoming and so friendly! She was so heart warming and gentle with our baby girl. Our photos turned out amazing I would 110% recommend getting your photos done by peta. 🥰

  • Bec

    We used Peta for our sons newborn photos in 2020 and again for our newborn twin girls this year. She is amazing with babies, all three of my newborns have slept through the entire sessions despite being handled and placed into poses. She ensured the safety of my twins by having an assistant on standby to make sure they stayed put! We couldn’t recommend her more highly, our photos are amazing and truely treasured.

  • Shenyce

    Peta took my daughters 6 month old milestone photos this July. From the start to finish, Peta was incredibly friendly and helpful. Her photos are beautiful and I will forever treasure the amazing photos I got from that day. I could not recommend her any more highly. I will definitely be back for more in the future.

  • Aliesha

    We had our first newborn session with Peta in 2020. She instantly made us feel comfortable and captured the most beautiful photos of our baby girl. As soon as we found out we were expecting number 2 we booked her again. We have absolutely beautiful photos to cherish forever now thanks to Peta, she even managed to get our 2 year old toddler to cooperate at her sisters newborn session and got the most precious sibling photos for us.

  • Laura Gunn

    Peta was my photographer of choice even prior to me being pregnant, I have followed her work for years. My maternity photos turned out amazing and are something I will look back on for years to come as our our newborn shots of Kasey. Her packages were very well suited to what I was looking for. Peta made me feel extremely comfortable and she was fantastic with Kasey even when he became unsettled. I would not hesitate to recommend Peta and I cannot wait to return for updated portraits of our family.

  • Hayley M

    Peta photographed our first child’s newborn shoot and ‘milestone’ shoot for her first birthday, and just recently we went back to have newborn photos of our second. She is our baby photographer of choice. She has a lovely calming nature and fantastic with the babies. The quality of her work is superb!

  • Lissy Brown

    Peta captured both our boys as newborns and there is no one I would rather capture those special moments. Peta is so professional with her finished product, she is so gentle and caring with the babies/children. Getting out of the house to get the photo shoot can seem a bit overwhelming but as soon as you step into the studio you instantly feel welcome and calm. The images are so gorgeous it’s hard to pick what ones to purchase!

  • Kimberley yildiran

    Our time with Peta was so good. It was our first ever. We couldn’t get the smile off our faces. My 4 month old had a nap during the shoot and peta was so careful not to wake her. The photo slide show put tears in my eyes with the beautiful images she captured of my little family. She is understand with payments too. Highly recommended!

  • Irini Lapolla

    We recently just went back to Peta for our second baby’s new born photoshoot. The minute you walk into the studio, it is very warm and welcoming. Peta makes you feel so comfortable and is an absolute angel with the babies! Her professionalism and work speaks for itself! The photos she captures are never exactly the same set ups which make it all more personal, thoughtful and attention to detail. We now have the most stunning photos of both of our babes that we will forever cherish. I couldn’t recommend Peta Nikel photography highly enough.

  • Samantha Downham

    Peta makes you and your baby feel right at home and captures such stunning memories to treasure forever Highly recommend

  • Kaitlin and Daniel

    An amazing experience! Highly recommend. We will be coming back!! Our first baby arrived over 2 weeks late leaving us to re-schedule our session once but twice, Peta was more than understanding and accomodating of us. As a first parents we had a lot of anxiety about how baby was going to react during the session. Peta settled our nerves within minutes of arriving, the studio was warm, quiet and calm. Peta was fantastic with settling our son whenever he would become a bit fussy. We felt very involved throughout the whole process and left feeling very excited to see what magic Peta had created. The sneak peak later that afternoon was incredible and we had lots of family and friends complimenting her work. We spent months searching for the perfect photographer and are so so happy with the decision to go with Peta Nikel Photography, the final images was much more than what we had hoped for. Thank you Peta, you are so talented and we can’t wait to see you again soon.

  • Annabelle McGuire

    Peta was absolutely amazing with both my kids. She was so gentle and loving towards not only my babies but us as parents. Her colour choices and styles are absolutely beautiful. She makes you feel so comfortable and welcomed. I’m sure my daughters felt like true royalty. You can very much tell that peta enjoys what she does and that’s probably why her results are always impeccable. 100% recommended peta Nikel photography

  • Caitlin Butterworth

    Peta was so incredible during our newborn session. She is very calming and has so much patience. She spent plenty of time to ensure we had the perfect sleepy newborn photos. Highly recommend!

  • Ellie Haas

    We loved having both our babies photographed by Peta. She is so talented at her art and was so kind and patient while we changed and fed the baby during the session. We treasure the photos she provided us with and our children and grandchildren will get to treasure them too. I would highly recommend her to take photos of your babies, it was a truly wonderful experience with such perfect photos taken.

  • Grace Chan

    My friend recommended Peta to me ages ago even when I was not yet pregnant haha. I am very happy with all the newborn photos and thank you so much for your patience to calm my baby during photo shooting:)

  • Sara-Jane Knott

    We were lucky enough to have Peta capture beautiful keepsake photos of all our three newborn children, including our youngest born in late October last year. Not only is Peta highly professional in the delivery of her services but she is also kind, talented and trustworthy. We consider these qualities especially important when it comes to handling our precious babies. Furthermore, Peta’s attention to detail, from her photos through to the delivery of her products, is second to none. We highly recommend Peta to capture beautiful moments of your family.

  • Bree Hobden

    Peta captured photos of my first child Bella in November 2021. When we entered the studio we found it a great calming space. Bella was 10 days old when her photos were taken by peta and peta was very gentle and loving towards Bella. Our photos were beautiful and they will be treasured forever. Peta ensured she did a lot of looks so we had a great variety to choose from. I would highly recommend Peta to take your newborn photos.

  • Megan Crowe

    We had a WONDERFUL experience with Peta from booking in our newborn shoot until we received our beautiful photos. She responded to emails immediately throughout the whole process. Peta made us parents feel at home chatting to us while she worked her magic with our baby. She was so patient and gentle with our little boy. We received the finished photos very quickly which we didn’t expect them before Christmas but it was so lovely to have them beforehand because we were so excited to show them off! We love the beautiful photos she captured of our first baby and we will cherish these photos forever! Thank you!

  • info44

    Thank you for your kind words. I’m so happy you get to enjoy your art work on the walls every day.

  • Elise Parker

    I first met Peta through our Rainbow baby session. On arrival we found Peta’s studio warm, welcoming and spotless! She was so organised, calm and gentle with our precious newborn. We knew she was our type of person. Our photos captured this long awaited moment so wonderfully. We felt at ease and treasured our photos so much that we didn’t hesitate to book our son in for newborn photos when he arrived. Peta took so much time and care to wrap, dress and position him. We never felt rushed when we paused to feed or change. She was amazing with our daughter who was hesitant to warm to our son – but Peta magically got her to be included and we have some beautiful sibling photos. Our artwork is now the centrepiece of our home and we couldn’t recommend Peta more highly. We adore the moments she captured for us!

  • Danielle Balcombe

    I began researching maternity and newborn photographers from the moment I got my positive test. I found Peta on Facebook and immediately knew that her style of photography would be perfect for what I was looking for. Having only ever had professional photos done on my wedding day 5 years previous I was a little nervous and didn’t know what to expect but once I had booked Peta I received so much correspondence before the big day with so much helpful information to prepare me. Peta made my husband and myself comfortable during our Maternity shoot which led to some amazing and beautiful natural pictures! Upon arrival on my baby we returned for his newborn shoot which I knew would be easy and effortless thanks to Peta’s special touch and comfortable studio. Peta had a sneak peek picture ready for us 7 hours later and I love it ❤️ I cannot wait to head back and pick out some special shots of my baby. Thank you Peta for making my families photography experience relaxing, positive and easy.

  • Lyn Bruce

    Peta is hands down the best newborn photographer in Hobart. Peta has a true warmth about her. Her gentle, caring and nurturing nature makes you feel genuinely welcome and comfortable in her studio. This is equally matched by her creative skills and talent with the camera. I am thankful for not only the beautiful memories she has captured of my grandchildren but also for the amazing pieces of artwork I have to treasure forever. Would highly recommend to anyone and look forward to more pieces in the future.

  • Lyn Bruce

    Peta is simply amazing! Her warmth, caring and gentle nature is the first thing that stands out. This is equally matched by her creative skills with the camera. Peta has so much talent! I am grateful for not only the memories she has captured of my grandchildren but also the artwork she has created that I get to cherish forever.

  • Kayla Quarrell

    I had a newborn session with Peta back in August. Being a first time mum, I was extremely nervous and unsure what to expect. Peta provided all the necessary information prior to the session which made me feel much more at ease. On the day of the session I was unsure how settled my baby would be, and if I would be able to settle him for Peta to be able to photograph. Especially considering he is generally a very awake baby. I need not have worried. As soon as I arrived I felt calm and the space was very relaxing. Peta instantly gave us a complete run down on how our session was planned. She took the time to soothe my boy into a complete state of relaxation to get the most amazing photographs. The moment my baby starting to wake I became worried about how our session would continue, but Peta took this opportunity to snap some perfect photos of my bright eyed, alert little man. I was stoked. The communication with Peta afterward was great, we had some wonderful sneak peaks. And on the day of our appointment to look at her amazing work, I was brought to tears. Peta showcased them in the most beautiful environment for us and made it almost impossible to choose a package. We loved our experience with Peta and will cherish our photos forever.

  • Danielle Telega

    Peta has now photographed my family On 3 seperate occasions. Each time she has blown me away with her talent, the end product of her photos just continue to exceed my expectations. Not only is she professional, friendly and accommodating her talent is next to none. Will continue to recommend and use Peta to document my family.

  • Nonie

    Peta is such an amazing photographer. We had used Pera’s talents over 11 years ago when she took some photos of our children. When we planned another baby and wanted some newborn photos, we knew exactly who to ask. Peta makes you feel welcome from start to finish. She is completely dedicated to her sessions and generous with her time. She communicates each step along the way and takes pride in what she does. Thank you for capturing the most adorable photos of our precious little girl that portray who she is and somehow taming that wild hair! We got digitalis, prints and the largest canvas. The canvas looks amazing up on the wall! I’m so pleased we got Peta to capture this precious time. We can’t recommend her highly enough.

  • Georgia Legros

    Our family has just had its third photo session with Peta, and every time Peta has been nothing short of amazing! The patience and kind touch Peta has when working with young children is phenomenal. Trying to capture these beautiful life moments with toddlers involved can be a very stressful experience. Peta makes it look so easy, and as soon as you’re in the studio with her working her magic, your stress/anxiety is immediately lifted. The quality of Peta’s work is flawless. I will always highly recommend this talented lady and her stunning work!

  • Emma Purdon

    I had two amazing photos sessions with Peta this year and on both occasions I was absolutely blown away. Peta has the most caring and warm nature and made us feel so welcome and comfortable. Peta captured the most amazing images of my family that I will cherish forever. The quality of the images are nothing short of perfection and I’m already excited to have more captured in the future.

  • Michaela Cashion

    I started having photos with Peta 4 years ago for a maternity session, then our first newborn and now our second baby for newborn photos, I would not go anywhere else! Peta’s work is absolute perfection. I am a very anxious person and Peta makes you feel so welcome, she has such a calm, patient & gentle nature, I instantly feel relaxed when I step into her studio. Her talent speaks for itself and I am so glad we have the most beautiful photos to look back on these precious moments and treasure forever. Thankyou so much again, you truly are amazing at what you do.

  • Laura

    We have had the pleasure of Peta taking photos for us multiple times now and can’t fault our experiences at all. Peta is extremely lovely and talented at what she does. Feel very lucky to have these special photos to treasure forever

  • Bianca Coleman

    Peta took some absolutely beautiful photos of our newborn son. She was super flexible when we had to spend a bit longer in hospital than expected, moving our session and working hard to get those sleepy images even when our son flatly refused to sleep. She certainly earned her money that day! We’ll be back for milestone photos on future.

  • Emily McBeath

    Peta is beautiful and so is her work. Peta helped me to create the most beautiful images for my business. I can highly recommend Peta.

  • Amber Robinson

    Peta is so comfortable and skilled handling babies. We have had some amazing shoots with her over the years. We are forever grateful for our newborn twin shoot and the beautiful images she captured and how comfortable and relaxed she made us feel bringing our family into her studio. We will always cherish the beautiful memories and moments in our lives she has captured.

  • Tegan

    Peta has now captured our family three times, including both of my sons newborn photos. Peta’s patience and gentleness is second to none and is truly reflected in the photos she takes. I will look back on our photos for many years to come, they perfectly capture our family in that moment.

  • Lara

    Cannot fault Peta’s work … it is flawless.. captures special moments that are incredible! She makes her clients feel at ease, a pleasure to have her work with my children. Cannot recommend her enough! The go to for children’s photos!

  • Tayla

    Peta was truly amazing with our baby girl for our newborn shoot. She has such a beautiful, gentle nature and made the experience so comfortable for us all. Definitely recommend Peta and 100% will be coming back for more photos in the future.

  • Teresa Storer

    I am a long time customer of Peta’s, she has done many photo sessions for me now, and every time I am blown away by not only her amazing photography skills, but her passion for taking care of her clients, and giving them the best experience and capturing the best memories for them. Peta has such a beautiful soul, always very welcoming and has a beautiful, calm studio. Highly recommend Peta to anyone seeking high quality photography.

  • Katie

    Peta has photographed our family several times and she never disappoints!! Peta has documented some of the most special times in our life (maternity, newborn, 6mths old and 1yr cake smash) and has captured our little ones and their little personalities perfectly. Peta has an amazing calm presence and her patience with newborns is next level. Our first born wasn’t your typical sleepy newborn, quite the opposite actually but Peta persisted and provided us the time we needed, all while reassuring us as parents it was totally normal and that she had some amazing shots – which she did! Peta’ s work of art take pride of place in our home. They are treasured memories I will forever be grateful for. I would highly recommend Peta to capture those special moments!

  • Amy Rowbottom

    We recently had our new born shoot for our beautiful teddy with Peta and she was nothing short of amazing. Her space was warm and welcoming and made both us as first time parents and teddy comfortable. Our shoot was quick and easy, peta had all the techniques on keeping teddy relaxed to make the shoot a breeze! We will be back for many more shoots for teddy and any future additions to our family.

  • Janna

    We’ve had two newborn photo sessions with Peta, equally wonderful. Peta is very patient and wraps the little ones up so beautifully. The photos are stunning and we couldn’t be happier with them. She is definitely our photographer of choice.

  • Jaimilee

    We have been to Peta three times over 24months and each time has been just as amazing as the last. She has such a soothing presence with children, especially babies! Her studio is absolutely perfect and you honestly leave all your worries at the door and she handles the rest! Peta has a beautiful way of going through your images aswell, my husband and I were absolutely blown away by the professional setup she has for a viewing session and each time we walk away feeling overjoyed with all the images! It has been hands down the best photography experience from start to finish ♡ I highly recommend Peta, you will not regret it!

    I have now had 3 photo shoots with Peta, the most recent being late June this year for a newborn session. In every session Peta has gone above and beyond for both my girls during their newborn sessions and during my maternity session and really makes sure everybody feels comfortable in her studio. She really does her magic capturing the essence of the photos and I have been absolutely blown away each time I receive the final photos. She really shows just how much she loves and takes pride in her work. There isn’t anyone else I’d trust to capture my family’s memories and I always make sure to highly recommend Peta’s services anytime my friends or family are searching for a photographer. Thank you Peta for your absolutely fantastic service and products!

    I heard about Peta from my hairdresser nearly 5 years ago when I was pregnant with my first born. I was very nervous about having photos with a newborn but Peta made the whole experience such a pleasant and relaxing one. I have continued to have 1-2 sessions a year with Peta and every single time she has made everyone present feel at ease and so welcome in her gorgeous studio. She has always managed to capture my children’s personalities and is so incredibly patient, always taking into account any stying preferences I have had. Her newborn, beautifully styled 1st birthday cake smash and her very popular Christmas sessions are all styled to perfection. My friends and family always comment on the stunning photos and several of my friends have gone on to have their newborn photos with Peta. I could not recommend Peta more highly.

  • Samantha

    Peta is an amazing photographer who has a natural talent for capturing newborns, infants and families. My most cherished images of my family were captured by Peta. She is also incredibly kind and calm, the perfect combination for a fussy newborn.

  • Lauren Machin

    I won a newborn photo shoot with Peta for Mother’s Day 2021. I was currently pregnant with my second child and over the moon to find out I was lucky enough to win. Peta was so accomodating with changing the date of the shoot multiple times as my baby came earlier than expected with a few complications. The photo shoot was a breeze and Peta was amazing, a total baby whisperer! Our photos are truly beautiful and Peta went above and beyond to source a special frame to match one we already had for our other child. Peta is amazingly talented, down to earth and I couldn’t recommend her highly enough.

  • Sian Manten

    Highly recommended! We saw Peta for both a maternity photo shoot and newborn photo shoot. She is incredibly patient, gentle and reassuring. She guided us through every step of the process and made us feel right at home in her stunning studio. Watching her interact with our newborn with such warmth and care, we felt so comfortable and relaxed. Her work is impeccable and we are very pleased with all our photos! We will definitely be back to capture more gorgeous memories in the future xx

  • Naomi Monks

    I was recommended to use Peta Nikel Photography by a family member and was not disappointed!! The Maternity session was amazing and I couldn’t believe how the photos came out. I felt like a beautiful mum to be that’s for sure!! And then we had our Newborn session which was equally as good. The family photos will be treasured forever!! And then there’s all of the photos of our beautiful baby girl!! They are just perfect!!! The albums and products that we purchased are such good quality and so professionally done, we love them. Peta made me feel very welcome and was very friendly. The studio was well set out and very comfortable. I could not recommend Peta more and we will definitely return for future photos.

  • Dana Mansfield

    I’ve been to Peta for both maternity and newborn photos and I couldn’t recommend her enough. Peta makes you feel welcome in her studio and also very comfortable in front of the camera. Peta is very professional to deal with from booking a session right through to selecting images. She was gentle, calm and patient with handling and capturing such beautiful photos of our newborn and it is such a credit to her. We can’t wait to return to Peta again for her to capture more beautiful memories for our family.

  • Taylam

    I love having our family photos taken with Peta, mum books every year and i actually look forward to them. Peta always makes sessions so much fun and i love seeing the end results.

  • Leigh Leach

    I started having photos done with Peta when my sister organised some as a surprise when I came to visit from Victoria. They were absolutely stunning. If you are lucky enough to live in Hobart you should check out this talented lady.

  • Sarah Adams

    We have been seeing Peta for over 8 years for all our newborn and toddler sittings and can’t thank her enough. Memories on our walls that will last forever. One thing you must do while they are little as they grow so fast.

  • Jayde

    Peta captured our family perfectly and the photo album is one our whole family will cherish our whole life. Peta made us feel comfortable in her beautiful set up studio. She has a very calming nature and has so much patience to get “the right shot” and it shows with her beautiful work. We highly recommend Peta to all our family and friends and proudly display her work in our family home.

  • Jasmine Langley

    We have had our daughter Florence photographed by Peta several times from her new born photo shoot, to her one year cake smash, to Christmas themed photo shoots. Every photo captured is perfect- Peta is so warm, patient and kind when photographing our family. She has a wonderful eye and a way of making people feel comfortable. We cannot wait to go back for another shoot in months time with Peta, Thankyou so much Peta for always being so wonderful and for sharing your talents with the world.

  • Caitlin Harvey

    I met Peta last year for my second babies newborn photos. Booking was so easy and loved how quickly Peta responded and how easy to was to communicate and she helped with any questions promptly. Covid 19/Hobart lockdown was just easing and Peta was able to get back to work in the studio and I’m so glad because Callie’s photos are absolutely stunning. Peta has such a creative flair and eye for detail and she was so patient with my toddler who came along for the photos too, My toddler was having a day and didn’t really want to join in but with Petas help we got there in the end and the photos of my newborn and toddler are so beautiful and something I will treasure forever ❤️ I will always recommend Peta to all my family and friends for their bubbas photos ❤️

  • Sophia Czaja

    It’s been almost a year since we had our newborn shoot with Peta. I still look back on the photos of my daughter frequently. They are my favourite family photos to this day. I was a bit nervous going into it not knowing what to expect but Peta is very calm and professional, there was no need to worry. I loved watching her handle out newborn, it was like she had a magic touch! It was a very present experience and I 100% would recommend her to anyone who is looking at doing a photo shoot with their newborn or family. I can’t wait to use her again when we have our next baby in the future!

  • Ellice & Adam Harvey

    Our little man was quite unsettled from Day one so I was a little worried how our photoshoot might go, however Peta is a natural! She was gentle and patient throughout the whole process, able to resettle Bub without any hesitation – we did ask if we could hire her out for home!! She accommodating, helping us to recreate a vision we had using our own props. We were also running late due to a ‘farm emergency’ Peta was extremely understanding and even offered if we needed to reschedule. We absolutely love our prints and will forever treasure them.

  • Violeta

    My baby’s first couple of weeks in this world were so tough and anxiety-ridden with baby having lost a lot of weight but her photoshoot with Peta on her 11th day was a breath of fresh air. It was the most relaxed we had been, watching Peta so lovingly manouver baby girl in to these amazing outfits and positions. She looked so beautiful and relaxed and so were we sitting in the warm comfy studio chair drinking our tea. I’m a bit of a control freak and perfectionist and I thought I might end up asking her to do some things differently but there was no need – you could tell Peta was as much of a perfectionist as me so I knew baby was in the best of hands. We will treasure these photos always. Thank you Peta!

    Peta is the best photographer that I could not recommend higher. She has photographed both our babies and our family and the photos are just so amazing and so meaningful. The photos were exactly how we pictured them and bought us fo tears they were perfect.

  • Bree O’Malley

    The photos of our baby boy are natural and stunning. Peta captures the special moments that we will cherish forever. She was kind, patient, talented and absolutely wonderful with Madden. Peta made us feel relaxed and welcomed in her beautiful studio. I could not recommend Peta enough. Thank you for creating these amazing memories!

  • Sarah Mullaney

    I had my newborn photos taken with Peta, the whole experience was amazing, from the booking right through to the selection process it was smooth and relaxing and we where able to easily keep in contact and shuffle dates to accommodate as needed. The photo session itself was incredible to be a part of, Peta made us as new parents feel very relaxed and comfortable while she took amazing care of our little one. The selection of props gives you a variety of styles, so there is definitely something to suit everyones taste. Highly recommend Peta to everyone.

  • Bessie

    such a lovely lady and very welcoming. She’s done a stunning job with our photos and I couldn’t be any more pleased with them. could not recommend her enough. Her studio is stunning with all the bits and bobs needed to capture those beautiful moments.

  • Cherie barrett

Peta has been photographing Jacob since he was a newborn they sessions have always been so relaxed and the photos are beautiful…i am totally in love with my mothers day oic as it shows the kove that i have for jacob and he has for me, thank you again Peta

  • Kate

    Very happy with the experience and photos with Peta. Peta was friendly, patient and experienced at settling my small newborn into beautiful props and wraps. The photos are gorgeous and Peta even posted my printed photo that was included in the session out to me. Would recommend to anyone wanting newborn photos

  • Nadia Jones

    It was a truly magical experience to see Peta capture the precious and gentle nature of our little Arthur. Peta’s approach and handling of our little one is reflected in the images and we are so glad that we decided on a newborn photoshoot. As they say, the days are long but the years are short. Thank you Peta.

  • Rebecca Koeppen

    AMAZING. My experience with Peta has been overwhelmingly amazing. The images we have been provided are priceless and forever treasured. Peta photographed both of my daughters newborn sessions and I would not go with anyone else. The images she has produced have so much heart and passion that shine through in the final product. Peta puts so much thought into each session/setup and from my following of her on social media for the past 3 years, I’ve noticed each session she does is always individual and unique. She doesn’t have the same standard photos for everyone and that is the main reason I chose her to photograph my family. Peta is extremely patient, warm and welcoming which has made our experience one not to forget. Peta calmed my very unsettled baby very well to get the most perfect images. Despite my very unsettled baby, our session was not rushed at all. I would highly recommend Peta to anyone expecting a bundle of joy or for any photography needs because she is a naturally talented photographer. Her images will leave a big statement in anyone’s home as they have in mine. I can’t thank Peta enough for providing beyond perfect images that will forever be treasured. I can’t wait to see the rest of my collection after seeing our sneak peak last night from my second daughters shoot. ❤️

  • Jaclyn Jolly

    Peta came highly recommended by serval of my friends and after experiencing Peta’s talent for ourselves, we can see why! Peta has the most amazing talent for capturing babies in their own individual and magical ways. We had the best time with Peta in her studio, a testament to her approachable and lovely persona, as well as to the care and love she had shown towards our baby James. We are over the moon with the final product! We highly recommend Peta- she and her work are outstanding! Thank you so much, Peta.

  • Aleice Page

    Peta is amazing. Her eye for detail and her passion for not only what she does, but supporting families to feel comfortable in the session is nothing short of beautiful. Highly recommend having photo’s with Peta in her gorgeous, cosy studio. Our photo’s are memories to cheerish for a lifetime.

  • Tanesha Hall

    I honestly could not recommend Peta enough for all your photography needs! We have had the privilege to have Peta photograph our children’s newborn & sibling photos on two different occasions. Not only does Peta put so much love & joy into all of her work, but she is extremely gentle and patient with our babies and makes each and every one of us feel very comfortable throughout the entire process. I cannot thank Peta enough for capturing these beautiful moments for us that will last a lifetime.

  • Ashlee Jones

    Great quality photos, extremely professional, friendly & reliable. Great with kids ! Made my family feel so comfortable!

  • Rebecca Smith

    I booked in to have our second child’s newborn shoot with Peta after a friends’ recommendation and I was not disappointed! Not only was she so organised, having everything I had requested preprepared, our newborn was so relaxed with her he slept through the entire shoot! Our 2.5 year old was not at all keen to have his photo taken, but she also managed to get him to smile enough that he looked like he had been smiling the whole time too. We are so happy with the quality of our photos and wouldn’t hesitate to use Peta again.

  • Natasha Williams

    I was recommended to Peta for photography and have been a fan of her work for years when I saw the magnificent pictures she took of several of my friend’s children. Obviously she was my only choice to photograph my granddaughter when she was born a few weeks ago. Her patience with us and Coco made the experience so comfortable for everyone. Nothing phased her. The photos were exquisite and we all cherished the entire experience.

  • Sarah

    We’ve worked with Peta on 3 different occasions – my twins have had their newborn photos, cake smash photos and Christmas photos all with her. She is the only photographer we will continue to use. Peta has the most warm, welcoming, friendly and professional attitude which makes working with her a breeze from start to finish. You can tell straight away that she has natural talent and a passion for photography. There’s is something to suit everyone’s different styles and her photos always look beautifully unique. I would 100% recommend booking with Peta! She is THE best and truly cares about her clients!

  • Jack and Emma

    AMAZING !!!. The word still doesn’t do Peta’s work justice. Nothings a hassle with the thousand email’s we sent. Peta’s patient, gentle touch was incredible to watch as she worked her magic, capturing some absolutely beautiful photos of our boy.Her talent speaks for itself, her photos are stunning and we are looking forward to receiving them all. I couldn’t thank Peta enough for capturing our beautiful little man. Peta is nothing short of a baby whisperer and it is clear that photographing babies is an absolute passion for her. This passion comes through in her work. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Peta if you are looking for a newborn photographer, you won’t be disappointed.

  • irini.lapolla

    We recently had our newborn shoot with Peta. You only get to have your babies that small for such a short period of time so it was important for us to get some gorgeous shots to capture these special moments and Peta did that perfectly. She was so gentle with our little one and made us feel very welcome in her gorgeous studio! I have, and will always highly recommend peta nikel photography!

  • lissy.houstein

    Peta was nothing but amazing with our newborn baby, she made him and ourselves feel so comfortable and welcome. She had our sneak peek to us thy afternoon and a viewing appointment a week later. Amazing! Highly recommend.

  • d.browntown

    She did a amazing job with my 2 week old baby boy Noah! Made him feel so special to us and made him at home in her studio, her eye for detail was incredible and patience was outstanding! Highly recommend peta nikel for photos!!

  • arcadiahairsalon

    I started having photos with Peta 8 years ago for a maternity session then newborn. We have continued to have at least one photo shoot every year from then, we all absolutely adore Peta and her style of photography. I’ve recommended her to many of my clients who all feel the same way about her amazing skills. Peta has an amazing way of making you feel completely comfortable and at ease which helps to capture stunning life long memories. I’m so lucky to have found sick a wonderful person and gifted photographer.
