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.

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.....

Perfection! | Newborn Lifestyle Photography Bayside, Melbourne

They're so perfect!  For me newborn photography is so beautiful for it's simplicity.   Documenting the tiniest of details, the wisp hair, the dribble, the dimple, their tiny hands and feet, this is what you want to remember as it's gone so quickly.   This gorgeous 8 week old baby girl was the sweetest!

Melbourne Newborn Photography | Can't think of a gift for your friend's Baby Shower?

Do you have a friend's baby shower coming up and don't know what to get her? What better gift than a Gift Certificate from Watch Them Grow Photography, something she will always treasure. Great idea for a few friends to contribute together.


It was a 'Bump & Baby' Workshop weekend! / Newborn/Pregnancy Photography

I had the privilege of spending a wonderful weekend with the talented photographer Anya Maria Photography.  It was so inspirational watching Anya work and meeting other fellow photographers from around Melbourne.  Thank you to all our models, you did such a wonderful job.  I can't help but be clucky since I met your beautiful, wee ones but at least I get to photograph these cute little bundles of joy.   If you are thinking of having newborn photos, contact me with your approximate delivery date so to pencil you in the first week following the birth.  As you can see pregnancy photos can be beautiful even though you're feeling uncomfortable and big.  Best to do those photos around the 32 - 34 week mark.
