Little Oliver came to visit from Dunedin at 11 day’s New. He was such a little cutie. Mum – Claire and Dad – Hayden were pretty smitten (and so they should be) Oliver had given them a little cause for concern – but arrived safe and sound. Here is a little selection of photos taken at Oliver’s photoshoot. Dad requested a photo of little Oliver in his boot!! This is the result.
What a delightful little man Nico was. My newborn photography sessions are usually done within the first 2 weeks. This is not always possible and sometimes it is a last minute thing to get photos done. Nico was 8 weeks old when he came to me, so I wasn’t sure if we would get to many “newborn” poses, as by 8 weeks they tend to not be quite so curled up, and are a lot more sensitive to touch. But Nico was a superstar! We got him nice and sleepy and the photos were beautiful. He is such a cute baby! Nice and chubby, with beautiful olive skin and the most amazing long, dark eyelashes. He was a little big to fit into most of my props, but the simplistic photo’s are sometimes the best. I even one a Bronze award at the NZIPP Iris awards with one of Nico’s photos. Enjoy xx
Newborn Photography is such a passion for me. I still get excited with each and every session. I LOVE babies – just incase you couldn’t tell – But this was an extra special Newborn Photography session for me, as it was my cousin’s little girl. Meet little Anika and her precious family – Manu, Koren and big brother Tane. Thank’s for coming through from Dunedin for your photo shoot. It was such a pleasure to photograph your beautiful little family xx Annika – fitting snuggly in Dad’s hands. xx
Little baby Kahu traveled from Ranfurly with his parents to have his newborn photos done with me. I find it pretty special when families travel to have their photos done with me. It is a huge privilege to be trusted to photograph these precious little babies, and usually this is the first outing form new Mum’s with their little ones – so it is pretty awesome. Here are some of the precious images I captured from Kahu’s session. Enjoyxx
Precious Family photos to treasure
Look how little Kahu looks in Dads arms. So much love right here!
It has been super busy in the studio lately, and I am very behind in my blogs – but have been trying to get on top of this over the last couple of days. I have another beautiful session to share with you. Amber who owns Buff day spa here in Alexandra along with her partner Shane came to visit with their precious little girl Ashlyn. So cute and so alert for such a little one, but we got the most precious images that Im sure they will treasure forever. Wouldn’t you just love to have photos of you as a newborn with your parents that show this total love and devotion that is so evident at this special time in ones life. Here are a few images from our session – Enjoy xx
Look at this beautiful little girl – Layla. I loved being able to do Layla’s newborn photos for her family. One of my images of little Layla managed to get me a Silver award recently at the NZIPP Iris awards, which are New Zealand’s only professional Photography awards – so that was pretty exciting. Here are a few images from Layla’s photoshoot. Enjoy xx
.10 days old.
Newborn photography is such a privilege for me. I never take for granted how precious these little ones are and how lucky I am to be asked to capture such a special time in peoples lives.
When I get these little babies into the studio they are still so very new – Mums are still getting to know these little treasures and getting the sleep deprivation and feeding under control, so I am very lucky to be spending this time with them and creating images that are going to be treasured for a lifetime.
This is little Ava Shone. She came to visit me when she was 10 days old. Such a relaxed little soul. I had the pleasure of seeing her again today – 2 weeks since her newborn session, and I couldn’t get over how much she had grown. Beautiful little chubby cheeks have appeared and she is just so cuddly and cute. What a fantastic job that I have!
Ella came to visit me on Duck shooting weekend with her Mum Stacey. What better thing to be doing while the men are all out duck shooting. Ella arrived wrapped in a camouflage blanket with Mum wearing matching top – both in the spirit of the big duck shooting weekend. When I first laid eyes on Ella I thought to myself this baby is older than 2 weeks (as my newborn sessions I try to do within the first 2 weeks of baby’s life) After chatting to Stacey I soon found out that Ella was only 2 weeks old, but had been born weighing over 10 pound!
Ella was just a delight, and I have been lucky enough to have cuddles with Ella on a couple of different occasions when they have come back to visit and order from their session.
Harper May Clouston
Harper – What a little treasure! I finally got to meet Harper a little later than origonally planned. Harper had decided to give her parents Willy and Olivia a bit of a scare on their drive into town on our first scheduled photo session, and ended up being diverted and spending a couple of days in hospital. Back on track and eager to get some precious photos of their dear little baby – another session was scheduled, and I got the pleasure of meeting this little princess!
I hadn’t meet Olivia or Willy before – they are such a neat couple and so excited to have this little girl in their lives. It is such an amazing feeling becoming parents. Nothing ever really prepares you for the moment you meet this little person for the first time. That unconditional love that is just so instant and so strong! It is such a privillege to be invited into peoples lives at such special times as these to capture precious images of times that will be forever cherished. These little babies will only fit in Dads hands like this for such a short time. Precious moments. Precious memories captured and treasured.
