Hi there, my name is Raelene, about 5 years ago now I started out on this venture creating Sleeping Grace Photography. This huge passion of mine is driven by the love I have for gorgeous little babies and the spectacular moments that can be captured on one’s wedding day. And of course, my camera, my extra baby… hand in hand these moments brought me to specialise in newborn & wedding photography.
It is the big, wonderful, joyous and memorable moments that I love to photograph. If there is an event that lets me be the storyteller then I will be there, camera in hand.
I have a studio in Warragul (located in West Gippsland, Victoria) that operates as my photography space for Newborn shoots and also as a client meeting space for Wedding couples. This art space of mine is coloured and textured to suit my style of photography and is also where I have samples of my work and products, including albums and print samples to view.
So, at home I have my hubby, who is yet to create the kitchen of my dreams, seeing as he is one fine Cabinet Maker and our wonderful, busy, crazy, loud, energetic, gorgeous, three little girls (how many describing words can we have for kids) that keep us learning every, single day! My work space is smack bang in the middle of the chaos and I think it suits us just fine, most of the time, lol. My life and experiences with them helps me to identify and capture the important moments for each of my clients. Love is universal. It comes in many different shapes and colours, genres and styles, but the essence of love is always there.
If you have enjoyed looking through my gallery of work and would like information about creating a story for your special moment, please feel free to contact me.

I can’t thank you enough Raelene. I got my newborn photographs today and they are that beautiful that I actually cried. I will treasure them forever. Can’t recommend you highly enough. Thanks again xxx
We have had the pleasure of using sleeping grace photography twice to capture beautiful photos of our little girl. True professional with a beautiful heart, highly recommend for sure
We went to Raelene for our newborn photos, she was so gentle and incredible with our Bub, made us feel very comfortable as new parents. Our baby wasn’t very settled and Raelene was very accommodating off this. We couldn’t be happier with the way we were treated and our experience. Highly recommended. A true natural with babies.
