Meet Madeleine! This tiny princess surprised her Mummy and Daddy by arriving almost 7 weeks before her due date. By the time she was out of hospital and ready for her newborn session she was over 4 weeks old, and still two weeks shy of her due date. What an amazing little girl! She came into the studio strong, healthy, and absolutely smashed her newborn session out of the park!
Oh my goodness, this girl and her perfect little face had me all kinds of clucky last week! Cheeks, lashes, and a perfectly behaved big brother... this session was basically a dream! Congratulations to Vanessa, Rodney and Riley on the arrival of your little girl!
Meet Remy! One of the squishiest babies I have photographed, at 4.26kg, he had rolls in all the right places! And he came to his session with the most adoring and well behaved big sister, who made my job so easy. Congratulations to Lauren, Chris and Lexie on the arrival of your baby boy!
Gorgeous little Connor was in the studio for his newborn session yesterday. Don't let these sleepy photos fool you, he was intent on staying wide awake for a big part of the morning! Which only means one thing, more cuddles for me! He was such a sweetheart, he started out fast asleep, and then after a little awake time and some wrapping, he dozed off again and let me sneak in a few more poses. He also gave me one of the best "blue steel' looks that I have seen in a loooong time! So cute! Congratulations to Yiota and George on the arrival of your beautiful boy!
P.S. I know as a parent, it can be stressful coming into a newborn session and feeling the pressure that your baby needs to be fast asleep to get all of those squishy, posed shots. My second baby slept for all of ten minutes during his newborn session with another photographer, so I know exactly what it feels like! The two things I ask of my clients (and Yiota and George, you rocked this), is that you come into the session with no expectations on your baby, and that you trust me. I am patient, I am experienced at following babies cues, I will only put your baby into a pose that they are comfortable and safe in, and we will get a full gallery of beautiful images regardless of how sleepy they are! And I will never ever complain about a baby needing extra cuddles during their session. Ever! Snuggle, pose, edit, repeat. That's my life. And I love it!
Meet Adoni! Another gorgeous baby with a full head of dark hair, and amazing lashes! I am so lucky getting to meet all of these perfect little people! Adoni was so tiny and sweet, and even though he left me with a mountain of washing, he totally stole a piece of my heart. Congratulations Zoi and Dimitri on the arrival of your little boy!
Little Duke's newborn session had to be postponed a few times, and so by the time I got him into the studio he was ten weeks old. Sessions with older newborns are always unpredictable, and are very much about going with the flow. After an hour long drive (and nap) on the way to see me I was fairly confident that Duke would not be sleeping, and so made the most of his awake time capturing his beautiful big eyes and all of those quirky little baby expressions. Little did we know, that he would end up falling asleep and letting me pose him just like a newborn! So his session is the best of both worlds! Congratulations to Chloe & David on the arrival of your gorgeous boy!
Meet Melina! The moment her Mumma carried her through my door she took my breath away! Her thick, dark hair, her lashes, and her gorgeous little face, she was just so perfect. I could have photographed her all day! Congratulations to Andreana and Ashley on the arrival of your little girl!
I'm a few days late with this blog post as I have been busy getting little ones back to school... Two days in and we are already missing those lazy summer holiday days! It's incredible how quickly they go by, much the same as they do when you have a newborn!
Meet Ava, who was an absolute dream for her session, and her gorgeous big brother Demetri who was equally as amazing (and entertaining, he had the best personality)! Look at the lashes on this girl! And she would have to be a contender for the title of longest hair I have ever seen on a newborn, the back was so long! She was just perfect. Congratulations to Denise, Yianni and Demetri on the arrival of your little girl!
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!
