Baby Photographer

I love nothing more then creating beautiful memories with beautiful images. My job as a baby photographer has got to be the most rewarding job i have ever held. Handing over gorgeous galleries to parents, knowing that these portraits will mean the world to that family for many years ahead.

I introduce you today to this gorgeous little man. He was such a little trooper in the studio and allowed me to get through so many set ups while Mum, Dad and myself had a great chat also. All my clients know that i am a bit of a have-a-chat and a laugh during the session lol I just can’t help myself!

So, here is a snippet of a recent newborn session that i handed over to Mum and Dad. So beautiful!

Baby Photography Specialist

We are the baby photography specialist. Well known for our beautifully lit and perfectly posed newborn images. Yes between 6-12 days old is generally the best age for newborn portraits, but did you know that we can do this at any age?

1 Month Old

 

We really don’t like it when families miss out on capturing these precious moments, or get knocked back from other photographers due to their baby being ‘too old’ after 14 days for newborn portraits. Some new parents just don’t have the time or energy to get around to getting portraits done. That is totally understandable too!

2 months old

So, we thought we would write this quick blog on our page to let everyone know….we accept babies at almost any age! You can still get some of those beautiful newborn poses when you baby is older. Yes, really little fresh newborns is when you get the curled up look, but you can still get cute shots of your baby at an older age 🙂

We understand that pregnant Mums forget to lock in a date for their newborn session, or the new Mum and Dad are just too exhausted to get around to booking a photographer and attending a studio for a newborn session. Why should you miss out altogether? You shouldn’t, that is why we are letting everyone know that it is never too late to book that session and get gorgeous images of your baby.

Baby Photography Wollongong

This session, what can i say, it was a really beautiful session. I first met Mum and Dad capturing maternity pics for them as Mum knew this was it for pregnancies and wanted to ensure that she had that memory of such a special time.

Then along came her handsome little man, gosh he was just so cute too! An absolute blessing for Mum and Dad and an absolute pleasure for me to capture this moment for them.

I hope you enjoy this little snippet into this beautiful session.

Baby Portrait Sessions

Sharing with you all another one of our recent baby portrait sessions. This little man was so well behaved for me and we managed to get so many gorgeous shots of him! Lots of beautiful boy set ups and colours were used to ensure Mum and Dad had an array of images and colour in their final gallery.

This year we are adding an afterpay service for our clients, to help new/expecting parents afford to get their own beautiful baby portrait done. We understand that not all families can afford that expense upfront, therefore we want to help our clients have access to our services in any way that we can, and we hope that this is one way that will help families.

Newborn Photographer

What drives me to be a newborn photographer? I get asked this question quite a bit. Well there is not one distinct reason that stands out to me, i have many reasons i guess. Though what drove me to focus on just newborns in the first place was……. loss.

When i fist started my photography journey my focus was fashion and portraits. I was in love with taking pictures of beautiful clothing. People dressed up, mainly in vintage clothing. I can see my love of vintage extending a little to my newborn set ups as well.

In 2013 i fell pregnant to my fourth child, i was pretty excited at this thought as my husband and I wanted to try for another child. It wasn’t to be though, i lost that baby at 8 weeks pregnant. In 2014 we fell again, to reach 12 weeks of pregnancy i was getting very excited as i thought ‘This is it, we made it”. Until this point i hadn’t told anyone of my pregnancy. We had our 12 week scan and to me everything looked great.

Few days later we got a call from my GP asking if we can please come in and discuss the ultrasound. My husband asked me if this is normal, to my knowledge i had never had to do this before with either pregnancy. At that point the worry set in.

I made an appointment and we spoke with out GP. My results were abnormal for all three of the Trisomy syndromes. My heart sank. I had never heard of them before nor had i ever been faced with all the decisions she was telling me we may have to face. I thought to myself surely this is all just a bad dream! I was told if it was latter 2 Trisomy syndromes to brace myself for the worse, as they are not viable pregnancies.

We were sent for a Harmony test, at that time it was a 2 week wait for results as they were all sent to America. That two weeks was the most agonising two weeks of my life. Waiting, waiting, waiting. My belly was growing, i didn’t know whether i should bother buying myself maternity clothes or even allow myself to get excited at the thought of my belly growing.

After three agonising weeks i finally got the call from my Gynaecologist to come in for a discussion. That drive into Wollongong felt like it took an eternity. I felt nauseas, scared, anxious and at one time i felt hopeful. Hopeful that the news would be good as i had googled that the ultrasounds stats can sometimes get it wrong.

Not in my case though. My baby girl had Trisomy 18 (Edwards Syndrome). At 4 and a bit months pregnant i lost my baby girl due to the complications of Trisomy 18. My husband and myself tried twice more after this and unfortunately lost both pregnancies as well. 4 losses in 4 years was unbearable. Luckily i already have three beautiful, healthy children. Not everyone gets to have that so i feel incredibly lucky and grateful.

This is what drives me to do the job i do today. The sheer joy i get from giving families cherished memories of their newborn baby. Memories are what keeps us going, and for me, having the ability to capture those for families warms my insides.

Loss affects people in many different ways. For me doing my newborn sessions helped me heal. I was helping families and clients capture these beautiful moments, and my clients were helping me heal <3
