I just love it when clients contact me again to photograph baby #2 (or 3+) and I had nooo idea Erin was pregnant! What a lovely surprise that was :)
Hudson was a great model, not one wee or poop on my blankets!! (Thats a perfect baby right there if ya ask me :)) A few top up feeds and a few (well lots) of cuddles from me and he went back to sleep each time.
This adorable little hat is a newbie from AprilsYarnables. I was able to meet the fabulous lady and her husband, all the way from the US, at the Baby Summit earlier this month. I may just have to buy some more...what do you think?
Once all snug and warm inside this cuddle sac we got some smiles...baby smiles the most adorable smiles of all :) Doesnt it just melt your heart?
Chunky Knit thanks to Bumblebee Boutique (another Baby Summit purchase!)
Cuddle Sack thanks to Tulin Akyuz
And how could I not grab some family photos. Mum is looking AMAZING!!! And Dad as calm as ever.
Fabric from the fabulous Kate at A Little Life Fabric & Props
BB Master O.....well .....I had to pull out a few sneaky tricks to get him in the photos :/ But a pro knows how to do it and it worked a charm as always! Just look at him tucking Hudson in and making a fuss over him :) Such serious work being a BB.
Never let anyone tell you your baby is too old for newborn photos. It is something I hear and see all the time that mums are told they must have them done before 2 weeks of age......what old wives tale did that come from? I didn't even get out of the house with my first before 3 weeks!
Here is little Lilly at 5 weeks of age posing it up for me with all her facial expressions, yawns and fluttering eye lashes.
If you have a baby, no matter what age, and would like photos, contact me today and I'll happily photograph your gorgeous bubba, with all my new backdrops and props.
PS. Yep another stunning romper from Georgie & Annie, ssshhhhh don't want hubby to hear :)
This little poppet didn't want to miss out on all the colorful action! She was bright eyed for most of her session, but oh so gorgeous still <3
I couldn't resist trying out some of my new backdrops, and a new gorgeous little romper from a fav Etsy seller of mine - Georgie and Annie. (check them out... but don't tell my hubby!!)
I have so many new props and bits and pieces I just want to try them all at once!!! Babies don't tend to want to tho...so I have to pace myself :)
Oh the fun I'm having with all this color and floral backdrops!! Eekk I'm so excited!!
I am very excited to blog this session, it is the start of my new style...colorful is the best word to describe it. I've been toying with this for awhile now, and have finally decided to "not be afraid of color"!! I love color, its me, and now its my work :)
First up is baby Evie, at just 6 days old she was so soft and snuggly.
I can't believe it has been one week since I was sitting in on my first demo session of the weekend at The Baby Summit.
"What is this Baby Summit you talk of?" I can hear you ask.... It was the most amazing, inspiring weekend with over 300 newborn, maternity and portrait photographers from all over the world!! All coming together to learn, make new friends and have an awesome time!! Yep a newborn photographers cult if you must give it another name (love that one Kelly Brown!)
My husband just asked me this morning if I was ok, I seemed different since coming back? Well I still haven't come down off the high of the weekend, Sue Bryce's final keynote was a huge self realisation and has me thinking of how I perceive my value- how do you perceive yours? I'm still working it out too :)
While at The Baby Summit I was also able to do some shopping... Sshhhh don't tell the hubby!
So many colourful gorgeous new blankets and props. I can't wait to use them.
And of course I couldn't go anywhere without funky Jamberry nails to match the occasion!
So much to think about, so much to implement, but what an amazing experience The Baby Summit was.
PS: Can't wait for next year!!
This is what I do...This is what I love <3
Photographing gorgeous squishy newborns. Why wouldn't I want to get bubby cuddles, smell that special newborn smell, fill my heart with love and photograph all their little faces and bodies....and lips, fingers, toes etc :)
I love it!!
Baby Diesel didnt disappoint either, with such a relaxed mumma this little man slept through the whole thing.
Here are a few shots from the sesh.
