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 Zander | Baby Photography Geelong

Baby Zander came in to see me last week for his newborn photos.  He smiled a lot through his session, but it only ever happened when I wasn’t holding the camera!    Cheeky boy.
I did manage to capture a few though :)

If you would like your own newborn session please get in touch early as newborns are best photographed in the first 5-12 days of life.

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 Kai | Newborn Photography Ocean Grove

Baby Kai came in for a cuddle today (well,  so his mum could choose photos but priorities!) so I figured it was a great time to blog his session!
I have to admit, I do get a little attached to all the babies who come into see me.  They are all so completely different, and I remember different things about all of them.

Kai?  I remember his amazing eyelashes,   what a sweet little face he has, and how much he didn’t like to sleep!

There is no doubt in mind that Kai is one adored little baby, and while everyone thanks me for my patience with their babies, I really should be thanking them.

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!

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 Geelong | Baby Harper

I remember two things mostly vividly from baby  Harper’s session day – her beautiful head of hair and how hot it was!    My car’s aircon is a bit dodgy and with the sun beating down at about 39/40 degrees that day, it was definitely a relief that Harper’s mum and dad had aircon!
Harper was about two weeks old at the session so not quite the sleepy newborn anymore, but with big gorgeous eyes and such a pretty face, she was still a dream to photograph.    I couldn’t believe it when she held her head up during one of the poses, for such a long time!  I have a feeling she’s going to grow up into a beautiful little girl with a ton of personality.

Enjoy xx.
