Violet :: {newborn}

A tiny bundle, wrapped in a white towel, nestled in daddy’s arms, greeted me at the door as I begin unloading the various bags and props for Violet’s newborn portraits. Only nine days old, and it’s clear that she has her mummy and daddy very firmly around her little finger. And I can’t say I blame them… Miss V is just adorable! A few of my favourites – (more over on the Facebook page)

 

Maisie :: newborn

At two weeks old, Maisie seemed so tiny, in my mind, anyway. Having just left my three small people, the youngest of which is now 11 months, to head to Warialda for Maisie’s newborn portraits, she was a featherweight as she curled up on my chest after being offered a cuddle. Quite the surprise I got to find she was over 8lb born!

Dan and Sam, thanks so much for having me out, I had a lovely afternoon hanging with you and getting some cuddles with your beautiful baby girl.

 

Fans of the Facebook page will have already seen this one:

One of the best parts of doing what I do, is watching and capturing the way a family grows and evolves. Like the family of this young chap:

From big brother Tommy’s 6 month portraits, and more recently, Kate’s lifestyle maternity shoot, now it’s little Andy’s turn to star in some photos of his own.

A favourite snuggle spot:

Playing together:

Isn’t he all cheek!

 

And of course, favourite Mr Monkey had to come out to play as well!

I don’t noramlyy share the out-takes, but this one cracks me up so much, I can’t help it. It doesn’t help that I was quite low to the ground for this one, and while Savannah distracted us all attempting to lick baby Andy, her partner in crime saw an opportunity – apparently my ear was just too tempting, as I discovered when it was attacked by a warn west nose!

I had an absolute blst hanging out with these guys, If you would like to see more from the session, head over to the Facebook page.

Sweet 6-month session

On Saturday, I headed out to meet a sweet little boy on his half-birthday, and capture some portraits to celebrate hbeing halfway to his first birthday.

Isn’t he a little cutie?

And my favourite type of family portrait – relaxed and comfortable

Brand new.

One of the loveliest things about shooting a maternity session is the knowledge that I will soon get to meet and photograph a brand new little person. So I was just thrilled to hear from Megan that she had a brand new baby boy!

 

For someone who is supposed to sleep 23 hours a day, he was awfully awake!

Finally, in the comfort of mummy’s arms, he drifted off

A new chapter…

A new baby is always exciting, be they a first baby or a fifth. There is something about the innocence, the freshness, the potential of these new little people that never ceases to amaze me. And there is a special joy in photographing a mother expecting a younger sibling for their children – seeing the excitement on the children’s faces, the shy pride as they let me in on the secret that mummy has a baby in her tummy.

 

On Saturday, I had the pleasure of shooting some maternity portraits for Megan, and little Miss Two wasn’t quite sure of me at first, but it didn’t take long and she was posing for the camera like  pro!

(as a side note, it’s a good idea to take the camera off high speed action mode before inviting the two year old to “press that button there” – let’s just say it’s a good thing I wasn’t shooting with my film camera!)

 

Megan has a cute little “basketball” belly – so neat and round!

Thanks for having me around Megan, I look forward to meeting the little person hiding in there in a few weeks!
