Intimate and natural images emphasizing the loving relationship between newborn and parents


Dear Newborn's Mom and Dad,


Congratulations with your little one. It is truly God's greatest gift.


Babies are always beautiful to photograph, irrespective of their age. They change all the time. Up to 7 or 10 days, newborn babies are floppy and sleepy. They usually are easy to curl up in a nice position. There after they straighten their little legs and they become more alert.


I find that most first time parents prefer to have there newborn shoot in my all white studio.

A newborn shoot at your home has a life style mood. It showcases your newborn in their own home and nursery. This may be more convenient for you when you have older siblings.


Your newborn shoot may take up to 3 hours. Baby sets the pace. You relax while I settle baby into a pose. Tiny babies make beautiful pictures when they are asleep. I will guide you on how to prepare baby to optimise sleepiness before the photo session. You will also be prepped on what to wear, what to bring and how to look at your best.


My photographic style for newborns is soft, and natural. I use natural fabrics made from cotton, linen, alpaca wool and lambswool to wrap your baby in. Although I prefer neutral colours like white, cream of grey, we can use any colour you prefer.


Images of the relationship in your new family will have the most meaning to you, and especially to your child, when you look back this very short and momentous time in your lives.


If you have any questions please contact me. I would love to hear from you.
