There are few things more beautiful than witnessing the love between a mother and her child.

Introducing The Celebrating Motherhood Project


Mums work really hard for their families, but they often don’t take the time to appreciate themselves. This is a shame because they deserve to be celebrated too! That’s why I’ve created “Celebrating Motherhood.” A photography portrait project to celebrate Motherhood. This project will celebrate motherhood in all its forms, and give Mum a chance to appreciate herself.

Project inspiration

This project was inspired by my own experience as a mother and by the many wonderful mothers I have had the privilege of photographing over the years. I wanted to create a project that would allow mothers to celebrate their own unique relationships with their children.

I wanted to combine my experience as a family photographer and women’s portrait photographer and create some treasured photos not just of mums with her kids but capturing a gorgeous portrait of her too.

I have photographed hundreds of mothers over the past decade, and I am always moved by the stories that come with each portrait. I have had the honour of photographing women from all walks of life – stay-at-home moms, working moms, single moms, adoptive mums… Each and every one of them is special and deserves to be celebrated.

Project Goals

The Celebrating Motherhood Portrait Project has two goals:

1. To celebrate motherhood in all its forms through an online blog series (mums need to be comfortable with sharing their photos online)

2. To provide mothers with a beautiful portrait of themselves and with their children to hang on their walls

We want to help you capture your portrait, with some gorgeous lighting, simple but effective posing, we want to create a portrait of you that becomes your new favourite photo of you ever!

What is Your Covid Safe Plan?

COVID Safe Plan

Completed by: Stephanie Hogg

Business Name: Little Grasshopper Photography

Date reviewed: 23 December 2021

COVID-19 – Your Safety First  In these uncertain times, we understand that you may have concerns surrounding the health of yourself and your loved ones and might have questions about what we’re doing to protect ourselves from the lingering threat of COVID-19.

 We have used the last few months to improve our systems to ensure we are 100% COVID-19 compliant. We will continue to use these processes while monitoring Government guidelines and the constantly evolving ACT Health advice.

1. Physical Distancing 

In line with current guidelines, we will ensure there are no more than the maximum allowed number of people allowed in the studio or as determined by the size of the space. 

Where possible, we will practice and ensure physical distancing during your session. To assist with this, we request that only family members who will be photographed attend the session. We also ask that only decision-makers be present for all other consultations, including photo reveals. 

To minimise contact, we have a contactless payment option including contactless EFTPOS, online bank transfer, online card payment, or using our in-studio Eftpos facilities.

2. Hygiene

At the entrance of our studio, we provide a hand sanitiser. We request that all visitors please use this upon entering.

Each photographer has their own set of equipment, and all our photography equipment is thoroughly cleaned before and after each session to minimise the spread of germs.

We will thoroughly wash all fabrics used during your session, and any props used or handled will also be cleaned. All clothing worn on the day of your session will be freshly laundered.

We ask that clients do not touch our equipment during your session and regrettably cannot assist you in taking photos with your phone or another device.

All prints and other printed photo products that arrive in the studio are packed following hygienic practices by our suppliers and are sanitised before your collection from the studio or delivered to your home.

3. Masks

Where mandated by the ACT government, your photographer will always wear masks during your consult or session. In the case that your photography session takes place at a time where mask-wearing is currently required, you will also be required to wear a mask, except for when you cannot reasonably wear the mask, such as in providing our service – i.e. when we are taking your photo! It is required that you place your mask back on after your photo session.

We provide masks for your use, and you can find them next to our hand sanitiser. You may request your photographer to wear a mask during your session should you wish.

Fabric masks are washed daily, and disposable masks are replaced daily.

4a. Check-in CBR App

At the entrance to our studio, you will find a QR-code check-in poster. We ask that all visitors please check in upon entry per ACT Health guidelines.

4b. Record keeping

We keep records of all visitors to the studio. In the instance of one of our team testing positive to COVID-19, our studio will provide ACT Government with these records to inform our clients of any potential exposure.

5. Are we vaccinated?

All of our photographers and staff members have had their second vaccinations administered! We will also all be getting a booster shot when eligible.

6. Booked in and feeling unwell?

If you are feeling unwell the day of your session, please stay home. We will make every effort to accommodate you in these uncertain times, and if necessary, we can reschedule your session. 

The same goes for us as photographers – should we be unwell in the lead-up to your session and another photographer is not available to step in, we will notify you and go ahead with your session upon recovery and receiving a negative COVID-19 test result.

What Are Your Rescheduling Policies

Yes, if there is an available time slot, you may reschedule your session. We have two open dates and a variety of times available. You will have a reschedule link available in the confirmation email that you can use to see other available times.

In the instance of a COVID-19 disruption, family emergency or general sickness, let us know your situation. We can transfer your session to another available date or if none are available, we will provide you with a full refund of your upfront payment. 

We cannot provide a refund for any general reason within seven days of your session.

Where Are You Located?

Our Studio is located in West Belconnen, in Macgregor, ACT. There is plenty of car parking available to the front of our building. We are located on the opposite side of King Swim. 

The address is 3/12 Chalmers Place,  Macgregor.

How many people can we include in our photo session?

This kind of session extends to you and your immediate family. So, your significant other, and your children.

“As a mum, I don’t get in the frame very often, so getting to share this with my children was amazing.” – Rebecca

A home filled with love and connection

It’s scientifically proven that family pictures around your home increase your child’s self esteem. So we want to send you home with tangible reminders of all your family milestones and evidence of how much your little ones are loved.

Not only is displaying beautiful artwork of your family on the walls in your home a great way to decorate, you are showing how important your children are by displaying their smiling faces.

Hang one big piece or many smaller pieces to tell a story. I will provide you with many ideas using the images we’ve created from your session to design mockups. All to help you make your decision.
