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.

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 Photos Ocean Grove | Little Miss Ruby

Ruby’s parents brought their sweet little bubs in for her baby photos, which made tiny Ruby was my first adorable client for 2015! She was not a huge fan of sleep, but with such a pretty little face and dainty features, she didn’t have to be!

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
