13 Days New! | Melbourne Lifestyle Newborn Photographer

I met this sweet family 2 years ago when I photographed their first newborn baby girl.  I was so thrilled for them when Dad rang me to tell me that they've now welcomed another baby girl to the family.  Only 13 days old and so beautiful.   Their eldest has grown so much since I last met her and oh my gosh those gorgeous curls!

I hope you enjoy your preview....

Those Tiny Newborn Details you want to capture! | Baby and Newborn Photographer Bayside Melbourne

Newborn babies are only small for the first two weeks of life.  Documenting those tiny newborn features is something you will cherish in years to come as it brings back memories of how tiny your newborn baby was when you first arrived home from the hospital.  As a Mum myself I have a little box full of tidbits from my son's first couple of weeks.....first dummy, tag from the hospital, ultra-sound photos, and of course photos taken in the hospital.  As he got older I've even kept a lock of his hair from his first haircut and all his baby teeth (I was told it was a good idea to hold onto these)!   They may not be worth anything to anybody else but the sentimental value is huge for me. 

I always photograph a newborn's tiny details including toes, fingers, eyelashes, body hair, belly button, etc. so that you'll never forget the essence of their features as they literally change overnight.

Enjoying Autumn! | Natural Family Photography Melbourne

I love this time of the year.....Autumn is so magnificent, the colours, the soft light, nature's gift on display.  I had the hardest time narrowing down which photos to show from this family photo shoot as I loved how they totally enjoyed being in the moment, enjoying nature.  Their little toddler was just precious, full of smiles and laughter.  Hope you enjoy your preview!

Meet You at the Park...! | Natural Baby and Family Photography Melbourne

I feel so honoured when clients refer their friends to me for a photo shoot.  I am so grateful that you trust me with your precious little ones and feel so incredibly lucky to call this my job.

Kristina decided she would like to have their photo session at the local park and we couldn't have asked for better weather.  Little Lawton has the most infectious smile.   Every time the camera was pointed at him he just smiled at me.  He's a natural Mum and Dad!

It's such a joy seeing a previous client's family grow and being asked back to celebrate another new life being added to the family.  Welcome Jack!  Big sister and brother were wonderful with their new baby brother, doting him with lot's of kisses.

Newborn sessions are dear to my heart, it's a time that deserves to be captured as they change so quickly.  I come to you in your home and use natural light.  My approach to newborn photography is simple, timeless and emotionally driven portraiture.

When Karen rang me to book a photo session she asked if she could also bring their family dog Wilson.  I love including animals in family photo shoots as they are a huge part of the family as well.  Oh my gosh how cute are these children and Wilson the Beagle was such a trouper posing with the family.  Hope you enjoy your preview!

Welcome Xavier! | Newborn Baby Photographer Bayside, Melbourne

"Sometime the smallest things

take up the most room

in your heart."   Winnie the Pooh

It's such an honour to be invited into a new home when a newborn baby arrives.  It's a major learning curve for new parents, finding balance and adjusting to little sleep.  I love to capture the beauty and the joy of a new life, a new family is just beginning.  One such family have welcomed little Xavier.....

Toddler Fun! | Natural Baby Photography Bayside, Melbourne

When Ebony phoned and booked a photography session for her new baby, she was a little worried that we might not be able to get some good shots of her 20 month old boy Hudson as he can't sit still.  I love photographing toddlers, get them playing and having fun that's when the natural smiles happen.  How cute is he?

12 Week Baby Girl! | Natural Family and Children's Photography Melbourne

I've been receiving a lot of bookings lately from panicked parents fearing that they've left it too late to have newborn photos taken.  With Lifestyle photography it doesn't matter how old your child is as Lifestyle is natural and of real moments of who you are now.  I can always fix baby's skin rashes, etc. in Photoshop if need be.

Little baby Ida is absolutely adorable and at 12 weeks already has the most gorgeous personality and smile.

Newborn Baby Stretch! | Natural Newborn Photographer Melbourne

When Molly rang me about photographing her new little baby I was really excited.  Lifestyle photo shoots are my favourite especially newborns.  It can be a challenge though going to someone's home without knowing exactly what the light will be like but I go with the flow.  The end result is so real because the images capture the role the home plays within the family.

I'm a Mum myself and clearly remember that first month arriving home with our newborn son and how exhausted I was with lack of sleep, hormones playing havoc and just trying to keep up with feeds.  This is where an in home session is less intrusive and you can then just focus on your baby and let me do the rest. 

Little Hugo loved a big stretch, such a cutie!!

All babies have their own little sounds, movements and smiles that are all distinctive of who they are.   Mum said that Joshua has the cutest pursed lips while making a little 'O' with his lips!

Welcome Hugo! | Natural Newborn Photography Melbourne

Oh baby Hugo, you are such a sweet baby!  I love it when a session just comes together so naturally and I see the love of new parents for their newborn son! 

I find that parents are loving the more natural type photos that show their newborn exactly as they were when they first arrive home.  Newborns don't have a routine yet so I pretty much follow the baby's mood and their schedule.  Don't worry if your baby is unsettled as there is no time limit, take all the time you need to settle your baby.

I very much enjoyed meeting his parents and hanging out with the three of them at their home.   Thanks so much for all your help Richard!   I hope you enjoy your preview.

New little Sister! | Newborn Natural Photography Bayside, Melbourne

I was so honoured when Megan, a fellow photographer from www.megananne.com.au asked me to photograph this crazy, emotional, love-filled time in their life. Megan and Luke seemed to exude a sense of calmness despite the fast pace of a 2 year old and a newborn. Congratulations to you and your new family!  I hope I managed to capture such a beautiful time in your lives.
