Perth newborn photographer ~ Baby Alexa

Baby Alexaperth newborn baby photographr

It’s time for another beautiful baby on the blog!

She was a little bit older than most of the newborns I photograph, but at 4 weeks old she absolutely rocked her session.

I spend a lot of time at newborn photo sessions waiting for babies to fall asleep, and it’s not often that I meet a little one who sleeps almost the whole time he/she is here. But little Alexa was one of those sleepy babies. In fact we tried to get a few shots of her awake at the end of the session but it just wasn’t happening.  She only gave us the tiniest glimpse of those big beautiful eyes, but made up for it with her super cute sleeping poses.

She was so settled that her photo session was a real pleasure.

Here are a few of my favourite photos – I absolutely adored baby Alexa’s hair- it seemed to have a life of its own! : )

When the rainbow appears…

Rainbow maternity session

If you have been with me for a while, you might remember my dear friends lost their beautiful baby daughter last year just a few short days after her birth. I hear of women losing their precious babies and I can’t wrap my head around it so watching a friend suffer through this unimaginable loss, I started to feel very helpless.

Well, this post is about the light at the end of the tunnel. It’s about a little boy who is already so loved and who will grace us with his presence in less than a week. Of course, any pregnancy is cherished but you can imagine how over the moon we all are about this..!

Both mum and I really wanted to find a way to honour her little girl so it was clear that rainbow would be the theme. A rainbow baby is described by Kicks Count as: “A baby that is born following a miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal death or infant loss. In the real world, a beautiful and bright rainbow follows a storm and gives hope of things getting better.

And you couldn’t get a better helper than this proud big brother..

You have no idea just how lucky you are, little one. You have the best big brother on earth and your big sister is forever watching over you from above.

I will leave you here and let you enjoy what I hope to be a beautiful tribute to your sweet little angel ❤️

Beautiful Anna

Perth children’s photographer – Anna

After a few months of squishy newborn babies I met little Anna for her portrait session back in September.

And what a lovely session it was..!

I love photographs like these that are completely timeless- these images don’t scream 2016 and so they will never be the kind of images where children say ‘oh mum, what were you thinking’ (and we’ve all had those pictures taken over the years, I certainly have memories of a certain lime green outfit I was photographed in back in 1990s!).

Instead it’s everything my clients love in a portrait. These are the images that children will love as they get older as they’re classic and beautiful and really capture Anna’s personality with her charming smile just as her fantastic personality captured my heart.

Five years is such a fabulous age for photographing children. I love how their little personalities are developed and they are always so full of fun and laughter.

Baby Lucia

Baby Lucia’s newborn session

I met this beautiful family when Lucia was just over a week old for her newborn session a few months back.

Their session had it all- lots of pink, love and laughter not forgetting sleepy dust which made little Lucia an absolute dream to photograph. I spend a lot of time at newborn photoshoots waiting for babies to fall asleep, and it’s not often that I meet a baby who sleeps almost the whole time she’s here.

The girls were just great on the day of the shoot and we had such a lovely day.  I adore every single image we captured! Here are just a few shots from the day..

Perfect little darling who was very content the whole session..

Baby Louis

Baby Louis –

Perth newborn photography

Yet again I haven’t kept my promise to blog regularly. I think I must stop apologizing and blog when I can. This year has been incredibly busy, so preparing client’s proofs and orders  always takes first place. Thankfully that’s half term now finished, the place already resembles a building site a lot less and things should be back to normal again soon. Hopefully. So please forgive me and pop in now and again.

Below are some images from the session with baby Louis and his family..

Baby Louis was such a pleasure to photograph… He did so well.

And just adore his pouty lips- such a gorgeous wee boy!

He was a little star, as was his older sister Lucy, and we had an all round lovely session. Did I mention their oldest four legged brother Guinness joined them for a few family portraits too? So there were baby cuddles, toddler smiles and big sloppy Labrador kisses going around- I loved it!!

Hope you enjoy these images as much as I did creating them for this family.

 

Love,

Laura

Portrait session- baby Adio

Adio’s 7.5 months portrait session

Probably my favourite age.

They all have great personalities. They are so happy to be sitting up and haven’t figured out how to run away yet.  This little man was no exception and melted my heart from the very beginning of his session..

baby photography perth childrens photographer

And I mean how could he not? Full of smiles, cheeky, vocal and all around incredibly cute!

baby session perth

Let me tell you, this baby just lit up the entire room. His smile was infectious and he was just a pleasure to photograph.

He was such a sweet & easy-going baby for his session! He noticed every little thing around him and loved putting it all in his mouth. I enjoyed meeting him and his parents for this session and it was great to finally put the names to the faces since mum and I have been communicating for a wee while now.

You can see the love this family shares through the photos and in the way Adio looks at his mum and dad.

I look forward to seeing more of this little man as he grows.

What to wear for your session..

What you wear matters more than you think…

Styled sessions.

It takes more than a cute subject and fantastic light to create an extraordinary portrait… The clothes you wear and accessories add texture and depth to the photograph so it is important to get it right. Here are a few DO’S and DONT’S for your photography session:

DO coordinate but don’t match.

Pick out a few colours to coordinate between subjects when working with a palette of softer tones and neutrals.

siblings photo session perth photographer

DO go for soft colours such as cream, beige, dusky pink, light grey. They always compliment the subject and don’t take your attention away from them by overpowering the picture.

soft colours for session

DO put little girls in adorable dresses!

DO go for a smart look with boys. As much as their favourite Spider-man jumper might be a tempting option, it’s hard to create artistic and timeless portraits with overly modern and urban clothes.

DO accessorize. Scarves, hats, headbands, flowers- all these things can make an image look complete.

children's wear for photo sessions

 

DON’T wear overly bright colours. They cast visible shadows on people’s skin and take your eye away from the subject.

DON’T wear logos or clothing with writing and/or cartoon characters.

DON’T use sportswear for your portrait session.

 

Hope you found this short and simple guide useful.

Fun display ideas for your photos…

Here are some funky display ideas for your family photos.

Stuck for ideas on how to display your family photos around the house? Looking for something a little bit different? Look no further!

I’ve put together a few (rather quirky) photo display ideas for you to brighten up your home with.

unique display ideas for photos

I’m a huge sucker for the whole shabby chic look so it’s absolutely no surprise that I’ve instantly fallen in love with the idea of using an old wooden door or a window frame to frame your photographs. Looks fantastic!

Love Instagram? Then what about this ‘real life’ Instagram feed like geometric creation?

You can check how to make it HERE.instagram feed photo frame idea shabby chic diy

Love Pinterest? Who doesn’t. Why not to make this cool antique bicycle wheel your new pin board?

Buy one on Etsy or DIY your own.diy shabby chic photo idea pinterest display

Add a little rustic charm by dangling your polaroids from a fallen branch..

You can learn how to recreate the look here. I’ll be doing this one for the hallway. I adore old polaroids.

So not only can you arrange your favorite pictures on your wall, but you can actually turn a purely visual display into a functional clock! I kind of wish I had thought about this one before. Use any method you want for the 12 photos (canvasing, simple framing etc).
