Safe Newborn Photo Shoot!
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.
Ba.by-(n) a little bit of heaven sent down to earth! Welcome little Hugo!
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!

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.....
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.
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!!
Isn't she absolutely adorable? At 7 weeks old little Olive was all smiles and an absolute delight. Okay I admit it, I still get really clucky when I meet newborns for the first time!!
I had the pleasure of meeting another newborn baby boy last week! Welcome Joshua!
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!
