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.
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!
My first blog post for 2017, Happy New Year! I had the pleasure of photographing a nearly one year old toddler, meet Seoirsa (pronounced: Seersha). Isn't she the most gorgeous, little one and oh that smile could make anyone melt!
Her Mum and Dad didn't organise newborn photos and decided as a Christmas present to themselves, they'd have a professional photo shoot of Seoirsa about to turn 1. I so love photographing this age, the expressions, the personalities, the cutest!!
My aim is to capture how perfect babies are on their own. Simple, pure and natural newborn photography.
I've yet to come across a newborn baby that hasn't smiled for me. I know it's wind but heck we like to think that they're smiling just for us!! A newborn little girl has just been welcomed to this delightful family. Here are some of my favourites - enjoy!
