Little Logan made his first appearance in his very own studio session with me last week. What an absolute angel so perfect in every way...could have spent the entire day capturing this little guy.  His mom, Chantal and brother ELYSHA...were amazing in the session...its always an honour to capture families with their newborn baby and little Logan was a dream to work with for his session.


A sweet nudie little babe all sleepy and curly on a soft blanket backdrop wearing an adorable little knit hat or wrap.    I love them.  We all love them.  There is something so serene and pleasing about a brand new life and i get to capture these memories for you to cherish forever.


Timing is everything when it comes to newborn photography.  For an in studio newborn baby photo session I like to try and get the babies into my Milnerton Studio before they are two weeks of age.  When we are looking to obtain those sleepy, posed shots the younger the baby the better.  A baby that is fresh and new is much more likely to provide me with a deep sleep allowing me to work with their tiny bodies to achieve those uber adorable shots.  They are also very flexible at this age and quite enjoy being curled up and cozy while asleep just as they were in your womb.


Time is also key during an in studio newborn session because it’s important that we wait until the baby is settled into that nice, deep sleep before I start to work with them.  This process can be lengthy and patience is everything.  My studio is fully equipped with all the props, hats for baby, as well as its "toasty warm" to make them comfy for their session. Mom and Dad get a full view of the session behind the full glass doors, the "Glass Bowl" as i call they don't have to be in the "heat zone".
