Last week I had Gav and Julie in the studio to show them the photos from Baby Carter's newborn shoot. It's so much fun sharing the portraits with my clients and I was head-over-heels about this lifestyle, at-home newborn session!
Lifestyle sessions are all about capturing this stage in your life, nothing too posed & set-up - more just documenting the precious moments in time. Squishy wee toes, button noses, cuddles, sleepy stretches, wide eyes, rocking chair snuggles in the nursery. All that cute, priceless stuff that makes up for the total lack of sleep that comes with having a newborn in the home!
It's easy to see Carter is absolutely adored by Gav & Julie. Thanks for having me along to create these portraits for you team! Here's some of my favourites...
Gav and Julie, I can't wait to get these printed to you! Thanks heaps for asking me to take your first family portraits with Carter! I loved getting to meet Carter and I'm so happy with the photographs we created - before long these newborn days will be in the blurry past and you'll look at these photos and wonder at how little & perfectly squishy he was at just 12 days new! x
Back in September Mel messaged me casually mentioning she was 38 weeks pregnant and was there was time to fit in a wee maternity session?! 😆 She promised she'd actually meant to message me months ago! I'm so glad our calendars & the weather aligned for us to get these precious portraits captured! I first photographed Mel & Blair more than two years ago when Clay hadn't yet made his appearance into the world. So it was super special to be back again with these beautiful people.
And just this month we met up again to photograph the McKenzie's as a family of four! I loved meeting wee Darcy, who was a superstar for her newborn session. Check out all the cuteness below... Poor Mel had a fun time in my studio last week trying to decide which photographs to get printed for their walls! (Sorry, not sorry Mel 😜).
Mel & Blair, thanks heaps for asking me to create these portraits for you. I loved catching up with you and can't wait to get these photos printed for you! x
Brad and Jessie saw these images on the big screen during their viewing session on Sunday. There's something exceptionally moving for me as a photographer to sit there with my clients as they see their images for the first time. It is just so significant to me that these photographs are a fleeting moment in a person or family's life that can now be treasured for the rest of time.
I loved the honour of documenting such a special time for our good friends! Baby Blair was a dream to photograph, adored by her big sisters and I can't even find words to describe how much love and joy is squeezed into each portrait! Just look...
I can't stop looking at these photographs. 😍😍😍
Sayer family I love you guys!!! And I adored creating these photos for you. x
