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:)

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.

In home newborn lifestyle session to welcome Flynn Wigmore

It was a drive across the Westgate and off to the suburb of Seddon for an... 

In home newborn lifestyle session in Melbourne's West. 

I photographed this little man and his very lovely parents Josie and Luke and their rescue dog Sadie. I spent the morning into the early afternoon capturing 6 week old Flynn's little personality. He was quite the camera fan, watching and studying my every move.

I got to photograph snuggles and those adoring looks from loved up, doting Mum and Dad...

...Some very sweet puppy love. Sadie was very much in love with Flynn too!

Those feeding moments (note those beautiful stare bear eyes, studying my every move). 

And a newborn in home story wouldn't be complete without a bubba bath:)
