Newborn Studio Baby

Meet Mister L, just 14 days old, ever so handsome and so well behaved for his 2 hour Simple session! The images you see here is very typical of my style. Simplistic and as natural as possible. I consider all my sessions (regardless of which photography session package chosen) as baby led posing, which means I let baby decide which poses he or she would like to settle into and then I just gently guide them into place, moving a leg or arm here and there. From there on I use a variety of pleasing angles so I can capture as many shots as possible without moving baby too much before I move onto the next guided pose. Not all babies like all poses and I will not force them into a position if they don’t want to get into them. As the majority of my sessions are short, there is simply not enough time to wait for baby to fall into a very deep sleep for the more complex poses.

My props, if I use them are also very simple, consisting of a bowl which can be seen in the image below. If I want to get really crazy, and at the parents request, I have a very small handful of hats that can be placed on baby for a few shots. For the most part though, I like to keep things very simple with wraps and just baby.

If you would like to incorporate more props into your newborn session, please do let me know at the time of your session as I tend to not bring them out unless they have been asked for.

I so love the look of photos arranged in a collage as they not only help tell a story in one quick glance, but they just look really really nice :)! As a thank you for all my lovely clients who have graciously let me use a few of their images for my own online promotional use, I will now include a complimentary 5x7in high resolution birth announcement digital image, ideal for birth announcement and thank you cards, baby albums and social media use. I will be uploading my full range of templates on my website in the next couple of days. Past clients who have given sharing permission are welcome to contact me for one of these (even though your baby may be past the announcement stage now) :). Its my way of saying a big thank you, because without being able to showcase my work, I wouldn’t have a business doing what I love to do best… which is cuddling babies all day long x

Natural Lifestyle Home Newborn Photography

Natural Lifestyle Home Newborn Photography always adds a bit of pizazz to my online portfolio. For my home visits, I like to use my clients own home as a natural unique backdrop for family photos. Unless talked about beforehand I do like to do a mix of studio shots, simple baby shots to keep with my favourite minimalist simple style. However, parent, sibling and family photos are taken using various rooms in the home such as the master bedroom, lounge room, nursery or against a window etc. I can even incorporate some of babys own blankets and toys as seen in this session below.

Speaking of which, isn’t this the most darling little baby girl. She was such a tiny little cutie pie with the most thickest mop of beautiful newborn hair!! She had enough to bring out the brush! :).

Handsome big brother Mister H was so good to his new little baby brother and was very happy to give him snuggles and kisses during this one hour mini newborn studio photography session. This gorgeous teeny baby slept for almost his entire time with me this day, only having enough right towards the end of the session. He could not have timed it perfectly.

Newborn sessions with older siblings can be a lot of fun as well as challenging. It can be a huge deal for a small child to suddenly have a brand new baby brother or sister enter their lives and while some adapt very easily such as this young fellow below, some are still learning to cope with the big changes a new baby brings into their lives.

For this reason I always take each new session as it comes especially when siblings are involved. If I have a

10 Day Old Miss M: Natural Newborns

Natural, authentic, newborn photography – Unretouched

My most favourite newborn sessions of all would have to be the natural, authentic, newborn photography. Simple setups on white or subtle coloured blankets and wraps is all that is really needed for newborns. While elaborate newborn images are still lovely (and I still do them at the parents request), nothing beats an image that focuses just on all that natural, baby goodness.

This little sweetie arrived 10 days early before her due date and was so utterly gorgeous. Believe it or not, she was a little bit unsettled and absolutely LOVED her dummy and was not all that keen to have it removed for the shots, just giving us a few seconds before letting us know she was not happy :).  We did finally get her into a somewhat cosy sleep before her one hour mini session ended.

Miss M’s parents decided they would like their precious baby unretouched without the need for removing common newborn skin spots, rashes skin flakes and redness. I thought that this would be a fantastic opportunity for you to see just what proof images actually do look like before beginning the retouching process. I am seeing more and more parents these days asking for no retouches and I wonder one day if this is how newborn photography will evolve. Pure, natural, authentic photographs of baby. Of course every client has their own preferences to exactly how much retouching they would like or not like. Most of my retouched edits are still very natural and not over processed. I prefer to keep babys skins as close as possible to their natural state. Exceptions where a lot more editing may be required are done for babies with extremely spotty, red, rough, hormonal skin which can occur shortly after birth.
