I brought children into this dark world because it needed the light that only a child can bring. {Melbourne Newborn Photography}

There is not much I could love more than a newborn session, however, a newborn session that follows a maternity session would have to be one of them.
I really enjoy maternity sessions, chatting with the parents and the mum-to-be (a definition I'm not particularly fond of, because I believe you're a mother from conception, but that's another story).
Meeting Jada, we chatted of her 15 month old daughter and the whole world of change that was about to befall her, and whether they'd found out the sex of the baby (they hadn't). I do so love when it's a surprise.
Not too long after her maternity session I was messaged that their baby boy had been born, and after a little bit of to and fro we scheduled the session.
It wasn't the hardest session I'd done, but he certainly made me work for it, and his big sister was so full of beans it was not too unlike my own children at similar ages.
Baby Michael eventually settled, and I'm so glad he did, he was a sweet little guy and was simply precious to capture.
Enjoy. xx

Every baby needs a lap { Melbourne Newborn Photographer }

It seems I have a lot of blog catching up to do, I guess it shows how busy the past few months have been... (maybe I need an office assistant *only half joking).
You may remember Sonia's maternity session, we had such a lovely time chatting as I captured her maternity images. Even then she had some ideas for her newborn session, even before meeting her little girl.
When I arrived to photograph her and her husband Chris's baby girl I could see just how much love surrounded her. There were smiles, and doting looks the whole session. Something so sweet to be witness to.
It's a dangerous job I have meeting brand new babies, and Isabelle was certainly no exception. Her expressions were priceless and even awake she was generally calm. The session took on a more lifestyle approach in the end, and while that's not my usual approach it certainly worked a treat for this session.
Enjoy. xo
