A mixed lifestyle/studio maternity and newborn session

So I have to admit, I do love to shoot my newborn sessions MOSTLY in my studio where I have complete control of the lighting, temperature, noise and total access to my endless supply of newborn props etc etc.

However, it can also be a lot of fun to challenge myself and shoot a lifestyle session.. Get “out of my comfort zone” as they say!

Welcome to Leo’s little gallery.. When his Mumma contacted me and said she lived in a beautiful hinterland area where they had a lovely view we decided straight away that we would shoot her belly session at home! Not in one of my usual “favourite” spots and with no idea how the lighting would be hitting us I arrived at her place to find the most amazing backdrop! Winning already!

Views for ever! and a cheeky monkey to focus on!

She was such a little Daddy’s girl! <3

And then arrived their beautiful bundle of joy.

Look at that little face.. He was flirting with me, I’m certain of it!

We decided to shoot a bit of a mix and have some newborn “styled” shots in the studio..

and a few including the rest of the family at home with more of a lifestyle theme.

Their little family.. She wouldn’t stop playing with her big brother’s hair! haha!

And she is just besotted with her “little” brother! She’s waiting for him to grow some hair…

This little one is just so loved.

Can’t wait to see more of this beautiful family in front of my camera again soon!
