Melbourne Maternity and Newborn Session for the Burk Family

It is always extra special when I get to meet and photograph expecting clients and then follow them through to document the arrival of their little person.

Krissy and Adam love spending time at the beach, so we decided to head down to the cliffs of Mount Martha for their maternity shoot and were blessed with a perfect Melbourne night.

Then a month and a bit later, it was time to document the story of welcoming baby Dallas into their world. He is a gorgeous, placid little man who clearly has inherited his parents love for the water too.

Elroy -their photogenic Golden Retriever, also stole the show in many of the photos. We have our own one too, so I have an extra soft spot for this breed:)

Lilah Pattinson - Melbourne Newborn Photography

Meet Lilah Pattinson

It’s probably just as well Australian cricket legend James Pattinson is currently recovering from injury as he and his beautiful wife Kayla, had a little surprise coming their way. Lilah was born 5 weeks early due to complications in pregnancy. But their are no signs of her scary, unplanned early entry into the world. She is strong and just as perfect as can be. Now the family of three plus two fur babies Ghost and Archie, get to enjoy their newborn love bubble. Just in time before James is back fighting fit and ready to go on tour with Australia with his two gorgeous girls by his side I’m sure.

Port Melbourne Newborn Lifestyle session for Miss Evie.

 

It was a drive into the city to photograph this gorgeous button and her family for a newborn session at their home in Port Melbourne.

Tracey and Joel welcomed Evie into the world on May 11th. Placid she remained the entire duration of the shoot and we got to see lots of those beautiful huge possum eyes. I'm often amazed at how well new parents adapt to having their little person at home. When I stepped into the Sahayam apartment it was as though Evie had always been there.

It was a little while into the session that I came across another little lady of the house, who sat very eloquently on top of her Mum and Dad's bed, not even approaching for a sniff - fur baby Chloe would have to be the most well behaved dog I have ever come across. Tracey spoke about how she would go into the office with her to work every day - even attending meetings!

In home newborn session for Bobby Barba

In Home Newborn Sessions are Here!

As time goes on, my role as a photographer becomes more defined. I began my passion for photography, loving all of it! The posed and unposed. Lifestyle, Documentary, Portrait, Fine Art, Marco, Landscape - you name it I love it. However the importance of finding my place in the photography world comes from peeling back the layers of who I am as person and bringing those aspects out through my art. 

My role as a Mother is forefront the driving force behind what I do. My children are the reason I see the world as I do. They are my muse and daily inspiration. Motherhood has taught me to find complete solace in the raw, imperfect, messiness and craziness of life. Which is why 'in home' sessions seem like the perfect fit for my business. 

And to launch this new element to our business I had the perfect models to showcase exactly what it is all about...

Ella and Billy welcome home their beautiful baby boy Bobby. 

'In home' newborn sessions are for those wanting to capture life exactly how it is when your baby first enters your world. It's about photographing that little love bubble that you find yourself in. Doting, adoring parents admiring every tiny detail of their new bub. Mum and baby learning the art of feeding. The details of the space you have created just for them and the overwhelming joy and love you feel for your new family.  

Until May the 7th I'm offering a..

$100 discount for my 'in home' sessions.

I just require a deposit to pencil in your due date. After that we wait for this little person to arrive and lock in an exact date.
