some of my favourite props : balloons

Just one or a big bunch. Ballons are big bubbles of happy colour in a photo.

matilda { five days new } newborn session

Miss Matilda was the smallest, tiniest sleepiest little baby girl and I was totally smitten with her. I have to admit that four newborns in two days was making me very clucky, and Matilda was the last baby, so I almost entertained thoughts of having another baby. But then I had a great idea. I'd just photograph newborns instead. Brilliant!

adelyn { seventeen days new }

Adelyn was seventeen days new for her modelling debut, baby number three out of four from my model call. She may be a brand new babe but she certainly told me when she didnt like the way I was posing her. The baby always runs the session. To see the full shot of her in the very fancy french bucket check out my facebook page. Its one of my favourites from this session. She just looks adorable.

emmett { seventeen days new } newborn session

Emmett was the only boy when I did my newborn modelling sessions, and he was very handsome! His Mamma bought in the red and blue blanket so we worked it into the session. Look at those little lips, is he not the cutest ?

holly { twelve days new }

A couple of weeks ago I found myself with two whole work days and no appointments, and while i'm still not sure how that happened I had to fill those days with something wonderful, so I did a model call for newborns. I got to meet and snuggle four brand new little babies and it reminded me that they are all so different.

So if I stand on my tippytoes and stretch my arms up as high as I can ( which isnt very high, because Im pretty short, but work with me here! ) then that's about how much I learnt over two days. I have photographed lots of newborns over the years, but I made sure to try lots of new props and some new ideas. Get out of that comfort zone.

First up was Holly, who was born weighing in just over 11lb. She tried to resist sleep but her mumma took her for a lap around in the block in the car and she couldnt resist any longer, she arrived back in the studio sound asleep and ready for her close up.

mia grace { a newborn session }

The divine Miss Mia was eleven days old when she came to the studio for her session. And its funny I have blogged two images of her on her tummy, because she didnt like going on her tummy at all. She would wake up, look at me and say "I want my mummy and I might be hungry too."

eden { nearly nine months } on location

Isnt she the cutest thing! I know, I've said it before, but I do get the cutest clients. Eden's mum and dad travelled all the way down from Sydney for their session ( and maybe they were visiting some other people too ) so I met them a bit of the way and had the session on our friends farm near Gundagai. Totally wishing this was my backyard. Mum said she was a smiley girl and she absolutely rocked those smiles and those big blue eyes.
