This little guy was so in awe of his strange new world that he really didn’t want to sleep and miss anything!… But isn’t he just the cutest???
This is Maissy, just 10 days old in these portraits, and welcomed with love by her parents Xuan and Wei.
Welcome to the world, Maissy!
This series of images are very special to me, and the hardest shoot(s) I have had to do so far! Introducing the reason I’ve been so quiet since May – my little girl Rosie was born 23 June and has been keeping me on my toes ever since!
Newborn shoots are never really easy and I have a new-found respect for all the new parents who have come to me in those first few sleep deprived days to get those precious shots taken!
Normally I would expect to get at least 20 quality images within the session (which can last anywhere up to three hours… but I was only able to manage around 10 images from my own, over a few different days (don’t even mention the time to edit!) …and hubby still told me off for the positions I put myself in post surgery… oops!
But seriously, I couldn’t miss capturing this fleeting moment in time. Now I have these gorgeous photos to remind me how tiny she was (and how much hair she had at birth for that matter!) 🙂
This is my good friend Marika, with the latest addition to her family, Hunter (just 12 days new in this series)
Xander isn’t quite sure what all this ‘baby brother’ fuss is about…
Welcome to the world, Hunter!
This was a wonderful session of firsts – not only was it Ava’s first birthday celebration, but it was also her very first experience with cake and balloons!
A little unsure at first, I think she warmed to the idea of the whole thing in the end!
Thanks to the lovely Marika of M’s Cakes and Cupcakes for providing the gorgeous butterfly cake for the occasion.
An old school mate contacted me recently to photograph his newborn little girl. I hadn’t seen Duncan since we were about 12… so we had a little bit of catching up to do on where life had taken us!
It was so lovely to see him all grown up, now with his own beautiful family. I LOVE being able to capture such special milestones in life!
Here are some of my favourite moments from our session.
Xander often watches his Mummy (Marika, of M’s Cakes & Cupcakes) make delicious and beautiful cakes for everyone else to enjoy, so it was nice to give the little fella his own personalised cake… to SMASH!
