Looking at this gorgeous bundle of squishy newborn and you would never know the trouble he caused his mumma and dadda. This little man is the little bubba I was hoping to photograph as he entered the world however he decided he was in a bit too much of a hurry and went on to make quite an entrance into the world requiring an emergancy c-section and giving his mum and dad quite a scare.
I felt so blessed to be able to capture this Baby Daze session on Sunday morning especially when his beautiful mum was not feeling her best. A Baby daze session is conducted in the first few days of a baby’s birth either at the hospital or at home – wherever their birth story came to life.
I hope you enjoy your gallery, mum and dad and enjoy your beautiful blue bundle
What a beautiful day today was! Clear blue skies, warm sun and two kids with plenty of energy. I am always on the look out for new locations to take my clients to and capture some stunning images. The other day I spotted another little walking track I hadn’t seen before and I finally had some time to check it out today.
We packed ourselves a little snack, a hat and the camera and set off to find some gorgeous light and nice locations to capture some memories. Unfortunately my kids are maybe a little sick of having their photo taken
There were lots of laughs to be had and we found a new place to go exploring – plenty more paths to tackle next time as well! Hoping to find the little lagoon that is hidden down there somewhere.

My daughter is in year 1 and this term they are learning all about animals and their habitats. We often go for ‘bush walks’ I suppose you could call them – we prefer the term, ‘Adventures’. One of our favourite places to adventure in is the wetlands near our house. And after a busy morning of ballet practice and soccer games Miss 6 asked me if we could go Kangaroo spotting today so she could gather some research and get some photos for her teachers.
We have found a number of mobs of kangaroos and wallabies in Tichi Tamba before but these aren’t tamed marsupials that will welcome you into their habitat. These are wild kangaroos and very timid. In particular the big males are not fond of people coming close especially when their are young ones around.
So we set off just before dusk to hopefully spot some kangaroos and I took along the camera as it is one of my favourite places to get some beautiful family shots in the wide open spaces in the lovely soft afternoon light. My eldest brought a book, of course and Miss 6 was taking notes and making diagrams. I only managed to capture one dodgy shot of a little wallaby family (I think) – no tripod and failing light and very shy animals. I’m sure we will be heading back soon – perhaps next time 🙂
Yesterday I was talking about how precious Maternity or pregnancy photos are and today I wanted to talk about the next best thing – newborn squishy-ness.
In those last few weeks of pregnancy when all you want to do is meet the new person inside of you, many people will tell you not to wish it away. Caring for that baby while its tucked up nice and tidy (and quiet) inside you is so much easier. But while you are counting down the days it’s a good time to consider getting some pictures of that beautiful baby.
There are generally two types of newborn photography at the moment; the first is ‘posed newborn photography’ – this is the one with all those gorgeous props, baskets, backdrops. The ones that conjure up images of Anne Geddes Calendars. They are usually conducted in studio and take between 3-4 hours. Baby is usually kept asleep for these images and it is best done within the first 2 weeks of life. Another style is ‘lifestyle newborn photography’. This one involves the photographer coming to your house and photographing your beautiful new baby in the space you have lovingly prepared for them. We still do some traditional poses but your hands form the support for baby and we can capture the gorgeous relationship between you and baby. These sessions usually take between 2-3 hours and baby may be asleep, awake or both. I will follow bubs lead and see what happens. This type of photography can take place at anytime. – And don’t worry about needing to have a spotlessly clean house: I have children – I understand. All I require is an uncluttered space with good light – the bedroom, nursery and lounge room can often provide this. We can move any artifacts of normal life with a child (ie. piles of washing/folding/ dishes) to one side – you will never see them in the images 🙂
The new type of newborm photography that I am starting to offer is called Babydaze photography. This is a short session conducted in the hospital or home in the days just after baby is born – preferable the first three. In this session I capture all those squishy newborn memories – the hospital tags (for a hospital birth), gorgeous little wrinkles, crib/room number, first meetings with grandparents and sibling – all those precious things that only happen in the first few days.
If you are interested in any of these – or would like to know more about maternity and newborn packages please contact me for more details 🙂
