Newborn safety, composites

You might see some of my posts use the wording “this is a composite” What does it mean? “Compositing” is a very popular technique used by responsible newborn photographers. We should ensure the babies are safe at all times. When I’m taking photos—often several meters away—I can't respond to baby’s sudden movements. Having a parent within arms reach /next to the baby/ or with protective hands on the baby guarantee their constant safety. If they are being posed in a position they wouldn’t naturally take up, they need support. When I edit these photos I open up both images and merge them together or remove your supporting hands from the final image. The result? A picture with an illusion of a newborn baby sweetly posing all on their own.

My new Milestones 3in1 package

I’m so thrilled to introduce my new Milestones package which includes three separate photo sessions: 1. Newborn session 2. Sitting up session /5-7 months/ 3. 1st year session or cake smash session I would be honoured to be your chosen photographer and capture those all important milestones in your little one’s first year.

Cake Smash

Cake smash sessions are the perfect way to capture and celebrate your child's 1st or 2nd birthday. Watch your little one explore new tastes and textures as they tuck into a large homemade cupcake and we can capture your child’s personality for a lifetime. First we take a few photos in a nice outfit. For the second half of your session I will take pictures of your little one eating, smashing, making a mess! I will follow babies lead. If they want to take a break that is what we will do. Cake, and decorations are provided by me and are included in the session fee.
