An Aboriginal photographer has captured heartwarming photographs of newborns with their mothers in traditional surroundings to celebrate sacred rituals.

 Australian photographer Bobbi-lee Hille, 29, has paid homage to her Indigenous culture with stunning images of babies, with traditional Indigenous props and tools, as well as Aboriginal dot paintings.

Captured in a harmonious environment, the mesmerizing photographs give an insight into Aboriginal culture and traditions.

'I wanted to photograph Indigenous babies and bellies to create awareness of our beautiful culture and people,' Ms Hille said. 'It's celebrating Indigenous culture and new life through photography. It is very important to me to keep our culture alive, to promote awareness and show how beautiful the traditions are.'

The mother-of-three, from Perth in Western Australia, believes her project called Milyali Art - meaning newborns in 2015 - is even more important as mainstream education and that the media often neglects Aboriginal culture.
