Surrounded by Love – Whangarei Maternity Photographer

With only four more weeks until the arrival of this little baby, these siblings simply cannot wait! Although Mum has warned that, with their history, they may just have to wait a little longer than that. I last saw this gorgeous Mum almost seven years ago, and I thoroughly enjoyed catching up with her again with her growing family.

These children were delightful…. very happy to come away from the toys for their turn at being photographed. They all stood quietly and did everything that I asked. So very tempting to keep these little guys 🙂

Enjoy! Merry Christmas

The Boss! – Whangarei Baby Photographer

At 9 days old this baby boy was definitely the boss for his newborn photoshoot. He loved being wrapped, and was not at all impressed if he wasn’t wrapped! Luckily he is baby number 3, and Mum was pretty relaxed about it all…. a quick feed and he was asleep… pose him, take photos, try to move to another position and he was wide awake (and starving!)…. so back to Mum for another feed. At least we did get a lot of gorgeous shots of him, it just took a bit longer than expected. Luckily he is a little charmer, so all was forgiven 🙂

I can see why Mum and Dad adore this little 8 month old baby boy so much… he was incredibly charming and delightful. So calm and happy, even getting changed! And very inquisitive too…. much camera was so much more interesting than the toys 🙂 I was so close to keeping him!

I am often asked what kind of style are my photographs… well this is me…. simple & natural…. no gimmicks, no bright or busy backgrounds. I am photographing your baby, not my props….. I make sure your images are all about you, not me!

It took a little while for this baby boy to get into his phooshoot this morning. He was great being photographed with his big sister, and his Mummy and Daddy shots too. But as soon as I unwrapped his hands he was pretty jumpy and wriggly whenever I tried to position him. Eventually we cranked up the heat some more…. he settled down, but I think we almost cooked Dad!

As soon as I moved him onto his tummy he got into a much deeper sleep…… bliss…..

Happy Birthday Baby – Northland Newborn Photographer

This baby girl came to see me today on her birthday – she is 4 weeks old today! Her and her family left before dawn to travel all the way down from the Far North to get her newborn photos taken. Although 4 weeks old she was still a tiny little doll.

Her brothers were exceptionally good, and are totally besotted with her…. as are her parents! It was so lovely to see how adored she is by her family. As soon as she had a very full tummy, and we got the studio nice and warm, she slept soundly for her photos.
