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.
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!
The photo shoot involved lots of snuggles and kisses...
And my favourite part... bath time!
Thank you Tracey and Joel for inviting me into your home and trusting me to capture these precious moments for you. I loved every single minute of it!
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:)
