It's always extra special when I get to photograph the new baby of a friend, so I was so excited to meet little Finn! His big brother and my youngest son are both born within a few weeks of each other, which is how I got to know his Mum. Finn was gorgeous, and I managed to sneak in plenty of cuddles in between poses! Congratulations Dan, Gavin, Gracie & Max on the arrival of your little boy!
Meet Poppy! At 8 days old this tiny girl was so perfect and so good to me at her newborn session. She had the cutest little face, was so sleepy, and brought along her adorable big brother Hunter... I couldn't have asked for a better session really (well aside from the ridiculous heat we are getting in Brisbane at the moment, Summer you've been good to us with these long beautiful days, but maybe a little reprieve on the humidity may be nice?!)! The babies are loving the warm studio (it is usually heated for newborn sessions anyway), but the rest of us are a little worse for wear! Congratulations to Hannah, Grant and Hunter on the arrival of your beautiful little girl!
Little Emmy arrived on Boxing Day, and she was the first baby in the studio for 2018! Emmy's mum is also a newborn photographer, so it was extra special to be able to capture these moments. She came along with her big brother Levi, and big sister Leela (who was not so sure that she wanted her photo taken, but with a bit of time, a squeaky pig toy and the help of a game of hide and seek, we eventually won her over!). Little Emmy was just adorable, squishy, sleepy, and all kinds of cute! Congratulations to Kelly, Matt, Levi and Leela on the arrival of your baby girl!
I got so behind on blogging last year, but I've promised not to let that happen again in 2018! We will see how that goes...
Jasneet was the last baby I photographed in 2017, and I could not have asked for a better session to finish out the year! Look at her lashes! She was absolutely beautiful, and even though she was slightly older than most of the newborns that I photograph nobody would ever have known. She slept like a dream! Congratulations to Ranveen and Lakh on the arrival of your little girl!
Meet Ilaria! This tiny girl arrived almost 4 weeks early, and was 6 weeks old by the time I met her. She was still so petite, and although she started off quite alert she ended up falling into a deep sleep for me which meant we were able to get through a lot of beautiful set ups. Oh I can't believe I've gotten this far without mentioning her lashes! I mean look at them! AMAZING! Congratulations again to Lisa, Giuseppe and Massi on the arrival of your beautiful little girl!
It's no secret that I love working with newborns. And what could be better than one brand new baby? How about two! Eli & Nathan were in the studio recently for their newborn session and it was the best morning! The boys were adorable, soooooo sleepy, and their whole family was absolutely besotted with them. And I don't blame them one bit. I mean, I kind of fell in love with these two as well! Congratulations to Steph and Mark on the arrival of your gorgeous boys!
Alana was in the studio last week for a maternity session with her daughter Ava! It was amazing to be able to document these moments of a mamma and her firstborn, before another little one joins the family. I'm looking forward to meeting this baby and having the whole family back in the studio very soon!
Meet Zaid! This handsome boy had it all, cheeks, hair, lashes and 4.3kg of squish! He may have given me a slight case of baby fever. Seriously, how lucky am I that I get to cuddle gorgeous babies and call it work! The last two weeks have been super busy for me, with nearly all of my July babies being born within a few days of each other. I'm not going to lie, it has been hectic. My house is a bit of a mess, and my kids have eaten their fair share of chicken nuggets for dinner (they're not complaining!). And all I can think about is how blessed I am to have found a career that brings me so much happiness! And there is plenty of time next week for cooking and cleaning. Haha!
Meet Sarbel! This tiny boy teased me for his whole session, giving me beautiful smiles every time I put my camera down! I finally managed to capture one right at the end of his session, and it is adorable! He has the sweetest little face, and some pretty amazing eyelashes. Congratulations to Elina and Alexi on the arrival of your gorgeous boy!
Little Jude drove 8 hours to see me for his newborn session! You see, Jude's Mumma is my husband's cousin, so when they had planned a trip to the Sunshine Coast they decided to add another hour or two to the journey and visit my studio! Jude was a few weeks older than most of the newborns that I photograph, and he was so alert. I think we managed to convince him to sleep for all of ten minutes! Congratulations again to Flik and Luke on the arrival of your beautiful boy, I am so glad that I got the chance to meet and photograph him while he was still little!
