It is such a beautiful time...bringing a new life into the world. What is extra special is when we get asked to photograph both a pregnancy and the newborn baby. It gives us as the professional photographers a bigger sense of connection.
Professional pregnancy photos document such a special and fleeting moment in time.
New mum Lynn, chose our de lumiere pregnancy and newborn photography session where we capture both your bump and your bub. Today we bring you the newborn photography session.
Talk about melting our hearts. This little darling baby, Clementine, was just seven days new when we visited her and her parents at their home.
We arrived early for the baby photography session, as we find babies typically photograph best in the morning. We took about 2.5 hours for the session so there was time to relax, settle Clementine and take lots of different shots.
We brought along some wraps and baskets to help pose, settle and keep Clementine warm while we manoeuvred her about.
As professional mobile baby photographers, we can turn the smallest room into a photography studio to photograph your baby.
We love it when our parents allow us to work with their baby and take some time to relax and sit by and watch. We have photographed hundreds of babies and we have many settling and comforting techniques. At all times your baby will be safe and you can rest assured we have plenty of experience and infinite patience.
Booking a professional baby photographer means you get to sit back and let us weave our magic. We love hearing that many of our new parents refer to us as 'the baby whisperers'!
Clementine's proud parents prepared for the newborn session with headbands, bonnets and her cuddly toy ready for us to photograph. It is more personal if you can think about some items that you want photographed with your newborn baby or any special clothing that you love. The more simple baby clothes photograph the best and often, we capture them naked.
We also like to photograph in the baby nursery with all of the precious baby items and décor.
For us it is all about capturing the smallest of details. You will notice Clemintine's bubbles on her lips, the remnants of the umbilical cord and the flaking skin on those teeny tiny feet...all markers of such a new life. These photos are the type of images you will look back on. As new parents who are busy getting into a new way of life and such a big change, these little details can often be forgotten unless captured.
We love putting these images into a custom designed baby album. We love to tell a story, a story of new life, new beginnings and the future. As years pass you will find these professional photographs only become more treasured by your family.
We have so many options to turn your digital baby portraits into pieces you can admire – from custom-made books, large matted photography prints, birth announcement cards, Christmas cards and beautiful wall frames for your home and office spaces. We are all about printing and enjoying photos.
If you are pregnant, call us to have a chat about maternity photography or if you have just had a baby speak to us about our newborn photography packages. We have photography packages to suit every budget.
Don't forget, Father's Day is this Sunday the 2nd September so why not give your new Dad to be the gift of photography.
Our bump to baby collections are also the perfect gift idea and we have gift vouchers available immediately to post.
