Newborn Photos Geelong | Baby Harry

Sweet little baby Harry was in my studios a few weeks ago for his newborn session, along with his big bro.
We stuck to some beautiful neutral colours for Harry’s session, which suited his cute little self!  I love how curled up he was in his first wrap, like a little bundle.

Enjoy Harry’s beautiful images :)

Baby Evelyn | Ocean Grove Newborn Photographer

Sweet baby Evelyn came in a few weeks ago for her newborn session.  She looks like such a little doll in these images, and check out that eye contact.  Having seen her today so mum and dad can see their images, rest assured this little one is only getting cuter!
Enjoy xx

Baby Audrey | Ocean Grove Newborn Photos

Baby Audrey came in a few weeks ago and not only does she have the most beautiful name, but she had the most expressive little features as well!  Lots of smiles and big beautiful eye contact,  she is going to be one smart little girl.

Geelong Photographer | Elsie May

Elsie May was in last week for her newborn session and was just like a little doll – if dolls could be this pretty!  Big beautiful eyes and some funny little smiles, she definitely rocked her session.
Elsie’s mum and dad told me that they definitely wanted to capture some of the little things she did – like the way she would have her hands near her face and arms up when she slept – so that’s what we captured.  We were lucky to also get a few awake shots at the beginning of her session.

Enjoy! xx

Baby William | Newborn Photographer Geelong

Baby William came in to see me a few weeks ago for his newborn photography session  and boy – let’s just say I will never forget this little poop monster!    Sometimes newborn sessions really are filled with the funniest moments, and right at the end, after a record amount of poop, little William almost exploded onto his poor mum!  I wish I had gotten the photo!
Big sister Mackenzie was also an absolute superstar and how gorgeous do they look together?

Enjoy xx

 

 

 

Baby O | Newborn Images Ocean Grove

Baby O came in a few weeks ago to the studio for his newborn photography session and he was definitely one of the biggest little boys I’ve had in!  At 13 days old he was all filled out, with chubby cheeks already and like most boys, gorgeous lashes!
He took a bit of convincing to get to sleep but once he was we got the sweetest photos of him.

Enjoy.

Baby Hannah | Newborn Photos Geelong

Gorgeous baby Hannah came in to the studio last week for her newborn session and um, LOOK at that gorgeous whispy blonde hair!
Big brother Tom was such a little pocket rocket, I really had to pull out the big guns to keep him entertained and lets just say we had a number of very large garbage trucks everywhere!  Whatever works though, it’s such a long time for a little one to wait.

After lots and lots of milk, baby Hannah finally fell into a deeper sleep (still with some little frown lines though!) and we got these gorgeous images of her.

Enjoy!

Baby Quinn | Newborn Photos Geelong

Oh Quinn, you were just a dream baby to have a newborn session with!
Baby Quinn turned up to her session asleep, slept through all my setups, and apart from a brief bout of hiccups, she left asleep too!

With a gorgeous head of hair and perfect little features,  enjoy some images from her session.

Newborn Photography Geelong | Baby Reef

I don’t need to say too much about this session, the photos really do speak for themselves.
Little Reef came in to see me a few weeks earlier than expected.  He was tiny and perfect as all babies are, and slept like a total dream for me through the whole session (and not all babies do this part!).

The only sign he was ever annoyed at me for having to move him while he slept was a tiny little frown that would appear on his face after every intrusion.  He would sink back into his happy place after just a few moments.

Newborn Photography sometimes involves a lot of waiting around, for babies to settle and to feed, so it’s a great time to get to know the bubba’s parents.  Reef is his mummy’s first, so we got to talking about how momentous having a baby truly is.  No matter how many times you are told while pregnant and before that your life will change, it’s amazing when you realise how much it really does!  It is the biggest “expected” shock of your life.

I love shooting newborns because you get to be a brief part of this magical time in someone’s life.    Even if just for a little bit.    Sure it’s damn hard – you are a tired,  stressed, worried about sleep and feeding and all kinds of things.  But who didn’t lay there for hours watching the myriad of funny little faces and expressions on their sleeping baby?    Who didn’t complain about having to get up to feed in the middle of the night, but secretly love those quiet moments where it really does feel like it is only the two of you in the whole world.

It really is an honour being the one to capture each baby’s beginnings :)

Here is Reef!

Baby Ryder | Natural baby photography Ocean Grove

Even though most of the babies I see are around the same age and have only just been welcomed into the world,   they are all so incredibly different. Some are so chilled they barely open their eyes, some are smiling and interacting so early it’s amazing and some are just a bundle of wriggling limbs!
Baby Ryder was definitely in the relaxed camp!  He is just the kind of baby who takes everything in their stride, who loves to just watch the world go by.   He was not a big fan of sleep at all, but he was happy and relaxed and that’s all you can ask for isn’t it?

I always find babies tend to ‘fall into’ their own little one of a kind positions, and while I do love it when they are asleep and I can pose them so nicely – there is something even sweeter about those babies who are truly determined to have their little hands a certain way!   One day it will be hard for parents to remember these little details, so it is great to capture them.

Ryder’s mum and dad wanted some relaxed and natural baby photography, so I hope they are happy with these!
