Newborn Baby Photography – Remember When….

Newborn Baby Photography has a small window of opportunity, but the benefits of a professional photography session last many lifetimes.

Newborn babies grow so fast.  From day-to-day they change before your very eyes.  Although babies are beautiful photographed at any age, – photographing newborns to capture them in their curly, just-born newness is best within the first couple of weeks of life.  Professional newborn baby photography is an art and skill in itself, and a qualified professional photographer that specialises in newborn baby photography should be your first consideration.

Having beautiful photographs from your baby’s first weeks are priceless.  These photos will be passed down from generation to generation.  Start your new family heirlooms.

Here are some more gorgeous images celebrating the arrival of little cherub Layla.

It was such a gorgeous moment when she sensed her Mumma beside her and turned her little head to snuggle in.

Maternity Photography & Pregnancy Belly Cast

During her beautiful Mumma’s maternity photo session, Suzie from The Art Garage was on hand to make a belly cast with the mum-&-dad-to-be’s hands gently enveloping the baby belly.

Suzie paints & decorates the casts, but in this case we chose to leave it organic & egg shell & cocoon like. Beautifully suited to my hand felted wraps & the natural elements inspired maternity shoot.  SQP photographed an amazing water pool shoot which you can see here.

There is no more wonderful & original a ‘prop’ for the newborn session than to have your little one once again cocooned & cradled in the belly cast.

These awe-inspiring little newborns  grow so fast & once you have them in your arms, trying to imagine them as they were in a belly seems almost impossible.

At almost 4 weeks old, little Layla Annabelle has already grown & changed so much.  Remember When…

Serenity & Contentedness. A beautiful mumma-to-be in relaxed repose during her maternity photography session on the Gold Coast.

Enveloped in warm water, this beautiful, soon-to-be mum made such an angelic, elegant, & gorgeous subject.  This was a maternity photography session with a difference!

Water Pool

Our mum-to-be was lying in a shallow pool of warm water so that her hair and gown flowed gently around her.

For this creative photo session I hand-painted softly coloured backdrops; made fresh flower floral headdresses; & wrapped my client in swaths of beautiful textiles.

Afterwards the fun continued when we made a pregnant belly cast with Suzie of The Art Garage – you can experience her amazing paintings on The Art Garage Facebook page.

A sweet belly cast was made with both mum & dad-to-be’s hands encased in plaster on the baby belly.  Suzie created a natural plaster belly cast like a gorgeous organic cocoon. And I can’t wait to photograph the newborn baby nestled inside!

A relaxed-paced afternoon of cuppas, rosé for the dad-to-be, a warm pool, flowers, & so much precious beauty!

Thank you to lovely Elissa & Dan for sharing your precious milestone, & for enveloping us all in your calm, blissful, up-for-anything manner!

I’m really looking forward to sharing some more images from this beautiful unique session.
