          Hi! I'm Amy Tong. I'm a newborn and baby photographer in Sydney, Australia. I'm Mum to 2 little ones, and wife to my best friend of almost 20 years. I've always been creative. A lover of music, art and history. Photography has been an important part of my life since I first picked up a camera as a hobby back in 2008. I knew that I wanted to pursue photography as a career.

           

          I began my career as a professional baby photographer back in 2012 and have had the honour of photographing over 300 babies since then. To me, photography allows us to preserve moments in time for future generations. I can't think of any better job in the world. I'd love to hear from you and help you hold on to these special moments too..
