Winter's been the season of babies for me lately which I adore.  To experience the love of a newborn baby, the scent, the skin folds, and the cuddles makes my heart melt! 

Welcome little Ty, what a gorgeous name!  You'll probably remember the preview of Yuri's maternity session a couple of months ago.  Congratulations Yuri & Tim!

What to do if Baby isn't Co-operating! | Baby Photography Melbourne

Settling baby!

Newborns are a miracle and we want to show our new little bundle looking peaceful and relaxed when they have their first photos taken.  We've all seen those photos of new little babies posed in baskets, boxes and all sorts of poses that just seem as though they are the perfect baby, cooperating with every photo you wish to get.  Unfortunately this doesn't always happen and this is where lifestyle photography comes into play. 

Crying is a natural, real emotion that all newborns have for most of their first few months of life. Embrace this moment in time. It won’t be long before you forget how their little forehead wrinkled up whenever they screamed, or how their toes would get all stretched out and tense when he was upset. Let me capture those little details.  You want your photos to evoke real emotion and demonstrate the love you have for your child as you try to soothe them.  These tender moments are just as important, if not more so, than the sleeping, posed photos.

A newborn photo session is to preserve those first memories of your newborn's life.  Whilst posed photos can be cute, in years to come you're not going to look back and think wow, look how my baby was able to do this great pose!  The memories you'll have will be you comforting your baby, humming a lullaby to settle them and them gazing into your eyes with amazement and love.  

100 Day Celebration | Baby Lifestyle Photography Melbourne

I had the honour of photographing a little baby girl's "100 Day Celebration" called "Okuizome".  This is to celebrate a baby's "first food" or "first eating" in Japan and to celebrate the new phase in a baby's life.  It has beautiful sentiment behind the event and is a big feast for family and friends to celebrate.  It has been celebrated for hundred's of years in Japan, during times when babies didn't always make it to 100 days old. 

You're probably thinking that it's quite early to be introducing solids to a baby this young but relatives just pretend to feed the baby.  The food prepared varies between different regions of Japan but the food that is presented to the baby usually includes a fish (with the head and tail still attached), rice, soup, and boiled vegetables.  Each of these foods mean a different virtue such as the word for beans (mame) is similar to the word for loyalty/diligence and the word for red sea bream (a type of fish) is similar to a word for happiness (tai and mede-tai).  A small pebble is given to the baby to bite, symbolizing strong teeth.  I love the idea that eating a food could possibly portray a positive trait that your baby could have for the rest of their life!

Hmmmm, what positive trait could possibly go with chocolate - happiness, wisdom, serenity???
