Melbourne Baby Photographer // Baby Zac

There is never a 'wrong age' to take newborn photos.

Sure, if you're after the very styled, baby sleeping all curled up and posed newborn photography then that's a bit different, but for photos of you loving on your new little baby - natural and genuine, capturing that sense of amazement and wonder at this little person that you have created - there is NEVER a wrong time. There is something wonderful to be documented at every single age in your child's life. 

Baby Zac was two months old when I photographed this lovely family at their home in Mernda.

Still sleepy and snugly, but that look on his sweet little face as he gazes up at his Mum... Families loving on each other is what I want to capture, youngest and furriest family members included in this case.

Newborn Photographer Melbourne // And then there were 4

So often I walk away from a photo session thinking, 'It's this. This is my favourite type of session.' Because I genuinely love my job. I get to meet incredible people and be welcomed into their homes and lives to witness and capture love. Seriously, it's awesome. But when I get to photograph clients for both a maternity and newborn session, be still my heart.

I get to share in their anticipation and apprehension at our maternity photo session, because who isn't a bundle of feelings as they await their little one. Then I get to see them as fledgling parents at our newborn session, still adapting and learning but consumed with love for this tiny new person.

I was privileged to witness this transformation in Emma and Stu when returning to meet baby Owen.

Newborn Photography Session // Big Sister, Baby Brother

Diamond Creek Newborn and Sibling-6

This Diamond Creek family weren't so interested in the traditional newborn photos - baby looking all sweet curled up in a wrap - so much as photos of them loving on their baby boy. That's my kind of photo shoot! Families being themselves, relaxing in front of the camera, snuggling with their loved ones. They're the photos that mean so much to me personally, and they're the kind of photos that I want to give my clients.  

I love that photo of Mum holding her baby boy with his wonderful podgy baby rolls and the sweetest little dimples on his bottom. Big sister was adorable too, adapting to life with a new little person in the family.

Family Photography Session // Imperfectly Wonderful Reality of Life

Melbourne Family photographer (15)

I'm quickly learning the challenge entailed in taking a family photo when two young children are involved. With one child, patience, encouragement and some giggles will generally provide that moment of everyone smiling at the camera. Two young children though, looking and smiling at the same time....

We might get that 'everyone smile at the camera' shot or we might not, but we're certain to get something even better.  

The imperfectly wonderful reality of life and love and family. Chaos and wriggles and giggles.

But always the love.

Newborn Photography Session // Wide Eyed and Adorable

Melbourne Newborn Photographer (3)

This little darling was the first newborn shoot I have done, which is quite fitting as she is the daughter of Brooke, my first ever maternity session. It was lovely to come back and meet her! 

Ashlea turned two weeks old the day we took these photos and, despite being feed and snuggled, was disinclined to just drift off back to sleep. As for taking some naked baby photos, well she made her opinion known about that! She is an absolutely sweetheart though and you can see how much her parents adore her. Such a privilege to be able to capture these images for them.
