Our Studio – Nerida Louise Photography

Hello. We are Nerida Louise Photography. Our Studio is filled with amazing light to capture your portraits.

With an abundance of amazing props (wraps, blankets, outfits and lots lots more) for you to choose from and more arriving every day, we are a one stop shop for your newborn portrait needs. My studio is a warm and inviting space beaming with natural light. I have created a calm and soothing environment to capture your newborn portraits. Filled with colourful, carefully selected blankets, curly felts, tibetan lambs wool rugs, stretch and mohair wraps and outfits for those curled up newborn shots. I have a large range of soft knitted rompers and bonnets, delicate headbands/tiebacks for the cute little girl shots and a collection of vintage and antique bowls and baskets for my clients to choose from to create the portraits you will cherish and look at for years to come.
With years of experience in my field, and many of them spent refining my skills by attending newborn posing and handling courses, I have studied how to calm and settle babies in order to get them into those cute little poses.
Learning all aspects of safety when posing newborns to ensure they are comfortable and safe at all times, so my clients know they have placed their trust in someone who is a professional and well educated in the field they are employing.

This Picture – Love your photo

Love Your Photo. My favourite thing about my job is handing over peoples beautifully framed images. The look on their faces, that big huge smile they get when they see it for the first time. To them is isn’t just a print, shoved in a pretty frame, it’s a treasure box of memories. It’s now one of that families most treasured assets. The first thought that comes to my head when I think about it though, handing over a beautifully framed image of them as a family, or their siblings cuddling together or just an image of their newborn baby….. is when they clutch there face in their hands and say “this picture!”

This picture opens their mind to a flood of memories that pour in, it takes them back to that exact moment.

This picture makes their heart ache in such a good way that tears well in their eyes.

This picture, they know, will bring so much joy to them and their family for years to come.

This picture, they know, will remind them of so many things about their family.

This picture is holding their entire world in it.

This picture will one day be an heirloom, handed down through generations to the point that in the distant future, this picture will be all that their family knows about them. Just one image.

This picture is not just a memory etched way in the back of their mind. It is in a beautiful frame mounted on their wall.

This picture is priceless.

Love your photos enough to print them. I have framed nearly 180 images in just over 6 months for clients and I still get goosebumps when I see my clients and their families faces seeing their beautifully framed image for the first time. I laugh at the loving little argument they have over where it is going to hang, the excitement in their voices to get home to put it up.

This picture is worth it.

 

Warm regards,

newborn-photographer-sydney

I have been working in my field for 4 years and i absolutely adore what i do and creating amazing, life long memories for my clients. My journey has been one of my greatest achievements after my family and one that has helped me grow as a Mum, wife, friend and business owner.

Recently i entered the AIPP State Awards and walked away with three high professional practices and a silver. This for me was amazing as a first time entrant. To be recognised by fellow industry professionals was fantastic.

Though my true judges are you, my clients. The one’s who love my work and book me out each week, keeping me busy doing what i love. I thank you for choosing me as your Newborn Photographer. Awards are amazing, but my clients are more so. Without you i am nothing, so i thank you so much.

Newborn Portraits ~ Some of our latest portrait work

Sharing with you all some of our latest newborn portraits. We have been super busy creating some gorgeous images for our clients, so we thought we would share some in a blog for you all to see. Yep, time to swoon and get all clucky over these gorgeous babies!

Over the last few weeks we  had lots of babies born along with organising our images for the AIPP (Australian Institute of Professional Photographers) State Awards. This is my first time entering which i am extremely nervous about, but excited to see the outcome from the prints i am entering. I also can’t wait to share with you the images that i am entering into the awards season.

Over the past two weeks i have had lots of phone calls wanting last minute newborn portraits. Although i am not good at saying no (not at all good at it), i have had to start teaching myself to say no as it makes editing and keeping up with my current workload very hard. So please, if you are wanting to book in newborn portraits with me, i can’t stress enough how important it is to book early. My bookings are extremely limited and i can’t say yes to all the last minute bookings. If you wish to know what dates i have available, please head over to my booking calendar, as this is the best indication for you what dates i have available at the time.

Warm regards,

Newborn Portrait Photography ~ What’s it worth?

Well this blog is a little more personal. I had an enquiry the other day for some newborn portrait photography that left me wondering. The enquiry asked a question that i get asked often ( i am using that term loosely) and i thought i would answer it here, for everyone 🙂

I get asked a lot ‘We have had a look over your price list and are wanting to book in. Just one quick question though why are all the good photographers with perfect pics so expensive? I am not saying you aren’t worth it, more curious’ So i thought i would let you all know how we come to our pricing.

Education. I studied my butt off for three years at TAFE whilst working a full time shift work job. I needed to know that i was qualified to deliver images to my clients and that what i delivered was the best of me.

I studied my Certificate IV in Photography and my Diploma in PhotoImaging at West Wollongong TAFE and was taught by the greatest, most talented teachers who pushed me daily to be better, to try harder and to give my all, which is what i do for my clients. I continue to learn by attending mentoring classes in Newborn Photography and posing by the best Newborn Photographers in Australia, i keep studying and learning my art because i love it.

And…..It doesn’t stop there, most days i am editing, washing, washing and more washing, cleaning my studio, sterilising props that have been used in sessions, finalising galleries, uploading galleries, organising prints and ensuring everything is perfect for delivery. Last night i was up until 1:30am to fit in editing around my family and tomorrow i am unsure if i can attend my sons football game due to my workload and schedule.

My editing is the finished product for me, one image takes around 30 minutes for me to perfect. I try my absolute hardest to make sure every aspect of the image is perfect and something i am proud for my clients to hang on their walls.

This is mainly the reason why each of my packages have prints and framed products in them, so that i can ensure my clients have the most professional product on their walls that depicts my work how i seen it during the editing stage. As i have said before in posts, cheap labs don’t show correct colour as i edited it.

I work and i work a lot. My family and i haven’t had a holiday in 4 years due to my schedule and i rarely get days off where i am not answering an email or editing. I absolutely love my job, newborn portrait photography is the most rewarding job in the whole world and i wouldn’t trade it! Please don’t question photographers why they are so expensive, ask them how much work is involved in what they do 🙂

Baby Portraits ~ Some of our latest work

I sat down for some breakfast this morning and realised…. It has been ages since i have shown you some of my latest Baby Portraits! I have blogged many other subjects and my children portrait sessions, but i have completely neglected my baby portraits.

We have had so many sessions, yet i haven’t shared any of them with you! I guess that happens when you’re busy. I usually come out of my newborn sessions completely exhausted and excited to edit some of the pictures that i have captured, that these things slip my mind.

So, below are a few images from my most recent newborn sessions. This job is so rewarding, what a gift to be able to give parents. I am so blessed that i get to do this as a living everyday! I hope you enjoy these beautiful pics.

If you would like to join me for a newborn session, then go on and click the booking tab and make it official! We would love to meet you and capture some stunning images for your family. Or if you want to have a chat to me ( i love to chat, just warning you!) about our products and sessions then drop me an email, i would love to tell you more about my sessions and what you receive from them.
