Exactly what is “Natural Newborn Photography”?

Well I guess thats a bit of a subjective question - it depends on who you ask! But to me it means cutting back all the “stuff” and just focusing in on your baby.

When I first started my newborn photography journey in 2013 I have to admit that i was a bit obsessed with all of the little hats & headbands, buckets & baskets, & wraps of every colour and texture you could ever imagine. I hate to think how much money I spent … But you know what? None of it ever satisfied me. If anything it stressed me out because I was so overwhelmed by what set-up to use & what colours I should be using.

The day I decided that it wasn’t for me felt like the biggest weight off my shoulders. Initially I was only offering lifestyle newborn sessions but with the recent completion of my cosy little home studio area I decided to go back to offering studio newborn sessions again. But this time following MY vision.

So when you bring your little babe to me for their very first portrait session you can rest assured that they will be in good hands. My sessions are “baby led” which means that we follow your baby’s cues & photograph them as they are. Clothed or unclothed. Wrapped or unwrapped. Asleep or awake. I am ALWAYS mindful of their limitations & will never push them beyond what they are willing to give us.

Teeny tiny Lyla’s session is a perfect example …
