 Hello and welcome to my blog.


Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to have a browse.


As a 4th Generation Australian and Territory born, I can proudly say that I am a true blue Aussie and Territorian.


With my dad being the eldest of 7 siblings, I grew up in Darwin surrounded by family and lots of them! My cousins and I loved growing up together and our funniest and cherished memories were created here.


I  often get asked how I became a photographer or how long I have been doing photography. I remember the day so clearly while on a family holiday in Singapore when I was only 10. We were at a little market and amongst all the chaos and excitement, something caught my eye – A camera…. Not just any camera, one that was shaped as a coca cola can! I begged my dad to buy it for me and little did he know this was the start to my beautiful photography journey.  That little camera was eventually upgraded to a film SLR, where I learned about and appreciated the fundamentals of light and immersed myself in the darkroom, until moving with the times and changing to a DSLR. With a camera that accompanied me wherever I ventured, I snapped every fun and eventful moment that life threw at me, memories I wanted to cherish for years to come.


When my son (who was called a little cherub) was born and my life changing journey to motherhood was fulfilled, my love for both family and capturing such precious times through photography naturally came together to create one big dream come true – Little Cherub Photography.


Being one of Darwin’s longest and most experienced professional photographers specializing in maternity and newborn portraiture photography, I have had the honor of cuddling and photographing hundreds of newborns over the years.  I find myself predicting their every move and always ensure they are safe and sound.  I treat each newborn with as much care and love as I would my own and can settle them with ease.


Now, as a mother of three, (my youngest only 6 months old) I know all too well the feeling of how you can suddenly find yourself admiring your little cherub and realizing how much they have grown and changed so quickly, that it seemed like it was only yesterday that you held them in your arms for the very first time.


My elegant, natural yet artistic style of portraiture maternity and newborn photography will capture the pure innocence and every fine detail of your newborn.  Photographs you can look back on and reconnect with those emotions you did on that wonderful day.


If you would like me to join your beautiful journey to parenthood, please contact me. It will be my privilege.


With smiles and happiness,

Susan Fong

Susan provided an excellent, tailored service for both a maternity and newborn photo session. We had to reschedule several times but she was very accommodating. The sessions were easy and relaxed, with the final photos looking phenomenal - it was a difficult task to sort through them to find the best ones! Highly recommended and would definitely do another photo package again.

I would definitely recommend Little Cherub Photography for anyone wishing to capture those precious and fleeting moments in time with a new baby. Susan always strives for perfection in her work and is warm, professional and passionate about photography and newborns. She has photographed our family three times now and has impressed us with her creativity and vision for producing a beautiful family gallery each time. Susan is extremely insightful of a newborn’s needs and feelings, and watching her work with children and babies is amazing. If you are looking for unique and timeless shots to treasure that special newborn phase, I would definitely recommend Little Cherub Photography.

We chose Little Cherub for my newborn photo shoot. Susan is friendly and kind. She is willing to explain what we do not understand. Her photography skill is excellent and professional. We just regret we did not choose option B from the beginning then we could have had more time (2 hours) and could have had a more special beautiful shoot for my son. Option A (30 mins) which is only 5 photos does not work for us as many nice photos were taken by Susan and we don't wanna lose them.As she is usually busy, sometimes she does not answer my emails or send me a reminder. It will be great if there is a receptionist who can help with booking appointments and explaining to customers.I strongly recommend Susan at Little Cherub if you are planning to have a newborn photoshoot. I promise you will fall in love with her photos. If I can give 6 stars, I will surely.

Second time that we had our photos done by Susan and it's just getting better and better! Susan has been very patient as always and so passionate in her craft. We had lots of lovely photos and we just can't decide what to choose from. She also did a remake pose of my first bub and can't believe how my two girls look like twins. We did a maternity shoot and lots of family photos and she has been extraordinarily patient especially with a very active 20 month old to include. I always will go to Little Cherub for our photos and highly recommend her to everybody.😊

Our photo experience was nothing short of amazing. Susan was so professional and fantastic with our little one. Nothing was too much and she was so patient with baby and siblings during the shoot. I loved the selection session where she provided us with so much expert guidance on the photos to select and we absolutely love our photos!

Susan captured newborn photos of my daughter two years ago and I knew I had to rebook when I became pregnant with my son. Susan captured beautiful shots of my new baby which will be treasured forever. We also got stunning family photos, Susan was so patient with our toddler. I highly recommend Little Cherub Photography!

I had a newborn shoot with Susan and it was a fantastic experience. She was great with working with bub to calm, settle and get lovely photos.She has a beautiful studio and a lot of options to accommodate any style. My older children were also involved and she was great working with them, getting them at ease with the process and getting amazing photos that showcase their personalities.Had fun with the session and loved the outcome.

wholesome and special. Couldn’t be happier with the whole experience!

Susan was absolutely amazing to deal with, as we are new parents we arrived exhausted, highly strung and overwhelmed. She immediately took over managing to settle our newborn and giving us a much-needed reprieve. The photos she managed to capture brought a tear to my husband's eye who initially did not see the value in newborn photos. Cannot recommend enough

We had a photoshoot done by Susan with our 2 1/2 week old and I cannot thank her enough! Susan was very professional and listened to everything we wanted while making recommendations on what styles would suit what we were after. She was absolutely amazing with our baby. She was patient and able to settle her so easily to ensure that she got the most perfect photos. We are so happy with how they turned out and so thankful for the memories she captured. Will definitely be back for more photos in the future! :D

As a grandparent, this is my fourth visit to Susan to capture the special moments of our newest addition, Penelope, to the family. Susan is generous with her time and makes sure everyone is comfortable and relaxed. She works her magic so effortlessly, and genuinely loves what she does, the results are astounding and speak for themselves. With No. 5 grandchild due very soon, I made sure we were booked in and look forward to once again witnessing the baby whisperer creating memories for us to show off and cherish for years to come. Thank you Susan.

Absolutely worth every star!Susan is incredibly talented and is such a natural with newborns! It was so mesmerising to see how well Susan could settle and pose my son even at 4 weeks old. The Little Cherub studio is incredible, there is so much room for customisation with your shoots and the space is so calming, there is also a change table for your convenience.My newborn absolutely loved his session and his photos are incredible. Susan was incredibly flexible with us as we had to do two sessions due to my partner having work and kindly fit us in.Memories that’ll last a life time and incredible gifts for grandparents!

I don’t often write reviews, but Susan captured the most amazing images of our little man. They are absolutely stunning and we will cherish them for a lifetime. Her studio is lovely and she was so incredible with keeping our little man calm and relaxed throughout his photo shoot. I can’t recommend Little Cherub Photography highly enough. 💗

We have had the privilege of Susan taking photos of all 3 of our babies and she doesn't disappoint! We keep going back because she makes the process so easy and her high quality work is always consistent. It's not easy the third time around taking sibling photos of a 5 year old, a toddler and a baby but she was patient, understanding and was able to work according to how the kids were feeling at the time. Her selections of wraps, baby clothes and props are so vast, it was hard to make decisions on what we wanted but she was there to guide us and make suggestions on what would suit our needs. Thank you Susan for giving us these beautiful photos that we will cherish forever!
