Auction

Newborn/child session Auction

 

I’m auctioning off a NEWBORN/CHILD PHOTOGRAPHY PACKAGE!! – Worth £440 for charity. The package is for your newborn/child photography session and USB of all images.

It is for an amazing cause. Little Princess Trust is a charity helping to provide real hair wigs for children suffering hair loss. Mostly after chemotherapy treatment.

I was hugely inspired to do this by a lovely mummy whose darling newborn I got to photograph at the beginning of this year.

Katrina took it upon herself to raise as much money as possible by fundraising and getting her beautiful long hair cut short. Here’s Katrina’s transformation:

We want to make as much money as possible for Little Princes Trust and so if you want to book in a photography session for your little one then this is the ideal opportunity to do so and for a great cause! The bidding will start at £50 and I will give regular updates on where the winning bid stands on my Facebook page. I ask that the winning bid will be paid directly into Katrina’s fundraising page which can be found HERE.

Bidding will close Midday on Friday 28th August and the winner will be notified by email and announced on Facebook.

My newborn/child sessions can be booked on weekdays only.

TO PLACE A BID OR TO ASK FOR MORE INFORMATION: send me an email – info@laurachenphotography.co.uk.

Every single penny raised goes directly to the cause.

If the photography session is not for you, but you fancy making a charitable donation, why not support the cause directly through their website.

As always, all support is very much appreciated.

 

Love,

Laura

Why newborn photography?

Why newborn photography and why I will never shoot a wedding…

Because I believe in focusing on doing what makes your heart sing, what you love and do your very best at..

perth baby photographer

Newborn photography is so much more than just placing a sleepy baby in a fun hat on a soft throw and clicking a few buttons… I meet new parents at their most vulnerable- they’re scared senseless yet still expected to know what to do with this fresh little human they took home just a few days prior. There’s no secret. There’s no quick answer.

Do I know babies? I absolutely do. That comes with practice and passion. I shot over 20 babies in the last few months alone but I still make no promises. I know you love and care for your child, you want to keep them safe. Everything else is a bonus. I’m not going to guarantee the perfect shot or the perfect sale. What i’m going to guarantee is that when you have me, you have every ounce of my being to make sure that I’ll take care of your baby in the safest manner to get the best images I can get..

A lot of photographers choose wedding photography over portrait work because that’s where the money is at.. Some of them sincerely love it, some prefer a pay cheque over passion and if that works I’m happy for them. I’m also happy for those who will photograph anything not to turn away work. I get that too. However I see photography like good coffee- you get what you pay for. A company that makes coffee as well as shoes will not be the best at both. It might be OK at both, but for that special occasion where supermarket coffee just won’t do I’m going to head to the specialists, and there isn’t a bigger occasion than the birth of you child.

There’s no doubt photography can be costly and and there are reasons behind it.. Yup, we aren’t just greedy artists.. We’ve spent thousands of pounds on gear and back up gear in case of failure.. We pay taxes and sky high insurance rates especially when working with young children. Why? Because so the client and the photographer are covered in case of an accident. It’s vital. I personally wouldn’t let anyone without appropriate training and insurance look after my child and I don’t think anyone should.

The work involved in creating the art of newborn photography is extensive and costly.. From home knitted blankets, wraps and hats that were made from organic, ethnically sourced wool (I will not put just anything on a newborn) to hours in training to get better and sometimes days in post production.. That’s what separates a professional from a hobbyist..

perth newborn photographer

The custom service also does this.. because presentation is everything! Beautiful photographs look so much better framed nicely on a wall than in a drawer on a usb stick..

I guess I’m asking people to think before bargain shopping when it comes to your little ones.. Cheaper isn’t always better. I’ve been at the receiving end of emails asking to redo their baby session because someone else failed.. And I do. But it gives us all a bad name. Let’save ourselves heart ache and money by doing  research. Meet your potential photographer first. See their products and  previous work (not just the best few on their website). Ask to see a full session or two to see what you’ll actually get and don’t be afraid to ask for their insurance info.

Love,

Laura

Perth sunset maternity session

Mark and Marilyn’s sunset maternity session

Perth maternity photographer

Photography by Laura Chen

I see maternity photography as something beyond magical… The anticipation, the excitement and the true undiluted love.. its all there. Watching a pregnant woman tightly hug her bump just proves one thing: she’s not a mum-to-be, she is already a mother and great one.. She hugs no one the way she hugs that bump. She is a lioness patiently awaiting to meet her cub..

maternity photographer in perth

Photographing Mark, Marilyn and their baby bump was such an honour. This couple have been trough thick and thin to get their little baby here and their love and devotion shines through in every single photograph…

bump photography perth

What a gorgeous couple and what a lucky little boy who has no idea just how much love is waiting for him..

Sophie’s 12th Birthday Party

Sophies 12th Birthday party

Perth Childrens Photographer

Photography by Laura Chen

 

Every childrens photographer will tell you that photographing children’s parties is incredibly fun! There’s nothing formal about their parties therefore you get to be a fly on the wall and capture them at their most natural- laughing, dancing and being cheeky. Can I tell you what’s even more fun? Photographing tweens! You know that age where girls are ‘too old for toys, but too young for boys’ and all the fellas are full of beans and character? Yup, I love it!

Sophie’s 12th Birthday Party was no exception..

For her celebrations Sophie chose Hollywood theme and it was just perfect..

Hollywood balloons, red carpet, VIP wristbands, celebrity posters, champagne glasses and twinkly lights- Sophie’s party had it all.

Sophie’s mum Lynette did a fantastic job organising the party- the kids were entertained and never stopped laughing..

Or chatting..

Little Harry

Little Harry and family

Perth Children Photographer

Photography by Laura Chen

As a Perth Children Photographer I really do love nothing more than the little ones having fun in front my lens.. I want to photograph them all.. Little Harry was every photographer’s dream. Gorgeous little fella with bags of personality.

This nearly 1 year old little toot quickly stole my heart.. And you can see why..

perth children photographer

He was just so lovely to be around! Full of beans and giggles, trying his hardest to get away and walk.

His mum, dad and his big sister were all there bracing the very chilly December wind, which didn’t stand in the way of us enjoying a nice walk and a chat at Rodney Gardens.

I was very lucky to be there to capture all the love this beautiful family share..

Photography by Laura Chen

 

Everyone loves squishy newborn cuddles, right?

I was very lucky to photograph little Josh and his big brother Jack only 11 days after the little man’s arrival and it was beyond magical..

The true brotherly love was so beautiful..

Jack just couldn’t do enough for his little brother and kept hugging him tight…

But eventually all the hugs and milk did the trick and the magic happened…

But I couldn’t leave without taking a couple of photographs of his brother Jack who’s no doubt going to grow up to be a heartbreaker with his gorgeous curls and his big baby blues.

The families were so sweet and welcoming. The children were beyond beautiful.. These are the children who put everyone else before themselves. Children who go out of their way to raise money for this wonderful charity.. They have no doubt restored my faith inhumanity. And watching them smile and beam with pride at the awards was incredible.
