Photographing newborn babies is such a privilege. It takes a lot of time and patience but the reward is absolutely worth it. In the end you have these beautiful portraits of an amazing new life..
I’m very pleased to introduce this latest newborn to the blog, baby Jacob.
This little guy was so adorable and inquisitive upon arrival, he just sat there looking around taking everything in before conking out and slumbering away for the rest of the session enabling me to capture all his gorgeous little details and expressions. This little man kept his Mum and Dad waiting a little extra before joining them in this big wide world but I think you will agree he was worth the wait. His little face is perfection and his cuddles were the best!!!
It was really sweet getting to know this little trio.
Here is a little peek into Jacob’s session:
Thank you mum and dad for allowing me to capture this very special time in your life. It really was so lovely getting to know you all and meeting your little addition. Hope you enjoy your images as much as I did creating them for you.

The time has come for another beautiful baby on the blog! It’s turning out to be a very busy year with newborns!
It’s hard to know where to start describing little Piper! I met her when she was just a few days old and she really was just one of the most beautiful babies (with the thickest dark hair) I have ever seen.
I love photographing babies this age because they sleep so soundly, it makes my job easier for sure! Piper was a very entertaining model, giving us all sorts of funny facial expressions when she was awake. But as soon as she dropped off to sleep she turned into a total little angel, complete with those amazing squished up baby lips.
Here is a small selection of my favourite shots from the session…
We also got some shots with mum and dad, which I really love – it’s always nice to record the whole family on such lovely occasions…
Thank you mum and dad for allowing me to photograph this very special time in your lives. I hope you enjoy these images as much as I did creating them for you.

Everything about Rory and his newborn session was a baby photographer’s dream – a few simple yet stylish set ups, sunshine pouring through the window and an adorable family- there really wasn’t much more I could have asked for.
I’m sure you’ll agree that he’s absolutely beautiful, and although he was keen to stay awake to find out what was happening around him, we did manage to get a fair few very cute sleepy shots.
I love how this little man sleeps with a bit of a cross face on, it’s very cute. Here are a few of my favourites : )
Can you believe the soft monkey Rory is holding belonged to his mum? I really hope they continue to photograph him with the toy each year..
How gorgeous are Rory’s two sisters? And definitely the best sisters a boy could ask for- they were so sweet and loving towards him.
Not to mention his dad is a Perth legend 😉
Thank you so much mum and dad for allowing me to capture this special time in your life. Hope you enjoy these images as much as I did creating them for you.

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! : )
Isn’t she simply divine?
Thank you mum and dad for choosing me to create these images of your beautiful little girl. I hope you enjoy these as much as I did creating them for you.

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 ❤️
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.
Thank you for allowing me to photograph this beautiful young lady, mum and dad.
Hope you enjoy these photographs as much as I did creating them for you.

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..
Undeniable sisterly love…
Adorable sleepy miles…
There isn’t anything cuter than teeny tiny baby toes…
And there isn’t anything as beautiful as sibling love.. So new, so very magical..
Thank you for having me capture these precious fleeting moments of your life, guys. Tiny baby days pass before you know it, almost in a blink of an eye, but I hope you’ll enjoy your photographs for years to come as much as I enjoyed creating them for you.

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.
