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 Paxton | Baby Photos in Ocean Grove

A couple of years ago big brother Ryder came in as a newborn and now here he is back with mum, dad and his new baby sister Paxton!
It’s always so cool when my clients come back, and I’m so lucky that it happens all the time and I do get to see the kids grow from a tiny newborn to a rambunctious toddler!

Enjoy baby Paxton’s beautiful session.

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?

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!

Newborn Photos Ocean Grove | Baby Lillian

Baby Lillian came in to see me a few weeks ago for her newborn session with her big brother and mum and dad.  With perfect features like a little doll,  it wasn’t hard for me to get so many sweet images of her.  Her two year old baby brother Edward was such a star too – two year olds are always the most difficult of ages to pose with newborns as their attention spans aren’t very long, so this little guy did so well didn’t he?

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.

Baby Photographer Geelong | Baby Adara

This sweet little girl with the gorgeous name came into my studio a few weeks ago and gave me some of the cutest smiles a baby can give you!     At just 8 or so weeks old,   I never worry too much about getting them to sleep at this age because their personalities are shining through and their awake shots usually (and hopefully!) arrive with smiles and all those little expressions that mums and dads will want to remember.
Adara also got to have some cuddles with her big brother Callum.

Enjoy xx

Geelong Newborn Photography | The Moorfoot Family Newborn Session

I’m lucky enough to have earned a number of return clients.    One of the best things about my job is being able to photograph a family every year or so and being witness to the changes in their family as little ones grow and newbies arrive into the world.   It’s a big reminder for me how quickly life moves forward.   One minute their baby is barely crawling and the next, I am chasing their running, laughing toddler around!
I first photographed this family when little Sophie was almost 1, and now she’s a big sister already!  I met up with Sophie and her mum for a mini maternity session, and then for baby Anna’s newborn session.

Enjoy xx

Natural Newborn Photography in Ocean Grove | Dougie's Family

I’ve just spent the weekend with my stepdaughter’s school project – a ‘newborn’ doll that is programmed to act and respond like a newborn, requiring intermittent burping, feeding, and changing.   With my own son almost 3 years old, it’s been 3 years since I got to enjoy those first few weeks of life with a new baby and the doll definitely made me think back to those times.     Those first few weeks are such a strange blend of feelings – of utter chaos and quiet routine,  days that don’t have any discernible beginning or end and the endless cycle of feeds, nappy changes, baths, cuddles, and burps!
For those of you who take the time to schedule a traditional newborn session with a photographer, you get a beautiful record of just how small and sweet your baby was for a few short weeks, but what about the other stuff, the real day to day stuff that seems so mundane at the time but you will wish you could remember?

So that’s what we did with little Dougie & his family.  We captured how much of a water baby he was in the bath,  his feeding times with mum,  how much he disliked getting dressed out of the bath,  big sister Amelie’s smiles, tantrums and playtime with dad, and just a simple day in the life of the family.

Hope you guys loved your photos, I’m delivering them tomorrow :)

Enjoy xx

 

 

 

Geelong Newborn Portrait Photographer | Tillie & big sister Chloe

One of the best things about being a family photographer is having past clients come back to you with a new baby bump or a new baby!  All of our families change and grow so much when they are young, it’s great to be able to capture each milestone.
I posted about little Chloe not too long ago (and her gorgeous outfit!), and now Chloe is a big sister!  Tillie was a bit older than the usual ‘newborn’, but she gave us lots of lovely sleepy time as you’ll see, as well as those sweet little awake shots.

I’m not a huge ‘prop’ user when it comes to newborns, I love my newborn sessions to be natural and simple, because you don’t need much to show how peaceful, new, and beautiful they are.    I do enjoy using what ‘props’ bubs (and mum)  already has, so that years from now when you look back at the portraits, you may still own the little hat, or the blankie, or whatever else you choose to include.  For me it’s a more personal, meaningful way of creating a newborn session.

Anyway here is Tillie and big sis Chloe :)
