I’ve become a bit of a baby stalker lately as I build up my portfolio of newborn photos. When I spotted this little bundle of cuteness at a lunch at one of South Australia’s premier wine cellars, Chateau Tanunda, I was just dying to get her in front on my lens!
Fortunately her mum and grandmother were willing to give it a go, and so I invaded Emma’s home with all my gear, and took over their lives for a couple of hours.
Little Maya who was ready to come into the world 6 weeks early, is now 8 weeks old but still very tiny. She really wanted to sleep, but with all that excitement she just had to keep having a peep and see what was going on, I bet she slept very well that night!
I’m thrilled with the results, thanks so much you guys for not brushing me off (or thinking I was some kind of strange baby stealing weirdo!) and I hope you’ll treasure these photos for years to come.
Sorry to blow my own trumpet, but I’m just a teeny-weeny bit proud of myself at the moment! I entered this photo that I took (while on holiday in Kenya last July) into the SAPPA awards … and I got a silver award!
Thanks to a flu that’s knocked me for six, I wasn’t able to go to the judging, but thank goodness for the internet … the judging was shown via live streaming and I sat up in bed watching it on my laptop. Talk about nerve-wracking, but when they said I’d got silver I was just beside myself! Best thing that’s happened to me all week (well apart from Vicks honey flavoured cough liquid which is awesome!).
I wish I could explain to the woman in the photo how many people have seen her image, and the effect she’s had on them, and how they all love her baby!
Little Miss Ebony Rose had just the best time visiting my studio, especially when she discovered my feather boa! She loved it, and she loved being in front of the camera, a real girly girl! And look those eyes and eyelashes, just gorgeous.
Almost 5 months old, and what a smiley and curious baby this little girl is. She smiled, chuckled and gurgled her way through the portrait session and we were all totally amused, and enthralled by her!
Welcome to the world Samara! One thing is for sure, you will be surrounded by lots of love (although your brother isn’t that keen on you right now, but he’ll get used to you, trust me!). It was my absolute pleasure to photograph this tiny little newborn, so trusting and so innocent and so very loved, wouldn’t it be nice to always be that way!
