In home newborn & baby sessions
One of my favourite parts of my job is the fact that I get to cuddle newborns on a regular basis! What makes it even more special is that I've had so many repeat clients that come to me after I did their wedding photos, or their first child photos, and I get to see a family progress and grow.
I feel honoured to be invited back time and time again, and if we haven't met before, I would love to meet your family and start a new photo tradition with you!
If you are looking for newborn photos of your baby in a basket with perfectly smooth blankets and backdrops then you might want to start looking elsewhere. There are super talented photographers out there that love that sort of thing, and I'm sure you will find the right one for you.
What I do LOVE, however, is getting real moments of your new family member in their natural environment. I want the whole family around if possible, doing their thing. I want to photograph what the first few weeks with your little one feel like. I want the moments of connection. When Mum is feeding. When Dad is burping (the baby, not dad!) I want siblings refusing to be involved, and I want grandparents going all misty eyed. Don’t worry, I’ll still get images of the baby by themselves looking all cute. But you’ll also get a snapshot of your life as it is at this moment in time.
I truly believe that is what your babes will want to look back on as an adult. I love looking at the photos I have that show my parents home in its 80’s glory, my dad rocking his stubbies and handle-bar ‘stach, my mum with her Farrah Fawcett hair, lying on the couch while a naked baby is lying in front of her on the classic sheep-skin rug. I’d much rather see images of my mum, chilling at home with us as babies than a 'perfect' studio image of her holding us in a stiff pose, and I'm sure that's what your family will feel too. I want my sessions to reflect your story, and the breathtaking beauty of the ordinary life.
Everybody's story is distinct and unique, but within that there is a common thread that is woven through every families life - connection and belonging.
