Imagine a life with a newborn when you’ve got a toddler. Now imagine you’ve got two babies and a toddler 🙂 That’s Michelle and Todd’s little, or rather now much bigger, family. And all boys, including two cats! The littlest boys are identical, which makes my job a little more interesting 🙂 but lucky mum, dad and older brother as they get double the cuteness and double the love. And even though babies still are on a slightly different schedule, the calmness in the house was astounding. It’s when you take the time to inhale all the feels and it seems like you want to put yourself in a bubble and not share with the world <3
Here are some of the favourite images from their in home newborn family photography session
Despite somewhat traumatic birth experience, little Alice and her mum appeared relaxed. I guess this is what motherhood does to you – makes you calmer and wiser on somewhat a completely different level… most of the time… and your baby gets the mum’s vibe…
I vaguely remember those few days with my own children – everything in a haze – while you try to process what just happened. The first time around the weight of that immense responsibility felt really heavy through all the happy feelings but as my first baby grew older the all encompassing love just took over. It was a complete bliss with my second baby and that’s when I realised how much more important that birth experience is for the both mum and the baby. I do not have that many photos of myself with my babies in their first weeks and I somewhat regret it. This is probably why these in home newborn photography sessions are some of my favourites…
So when I went to photograph little Alice with her mum and dad, I really wanted to preserve that feeling of calm, happy and complete. I couldn’t believe how easy going she was throughout the session – such an amazing little human – huge kudos to mum and dad for making her feel so at home. Thanks to Julia and Mark for sharing your happiness with the world.
These are just some of my absolute favourites from the session

I can’t stop repeating myself, but I adore my repeating clients. I am grateful for having the opportunity to watch these families grow – this is such a special time in your life and I get to watch this throughout the years and document those very special moments! What an absolute gift!
So you can imagine my excitement when I got a message from Kirsty and Sam about them expecting a baby girl! YAY! Just over a year and a half ago I photographed their first born, and now Taylor is a big brother. Baby Isabelle is surely born into a very loving family!
I am thrilled to share this video with you, not only because this has been a labour of love, but also because it was put together with the help of my very talented family.
Ever since I took the Business of Photography workshop (thanks Rob Davidson) I remembered one very important thing – any time you can barter your services do it. For me, however, this was not about saving the money, but simply having a creative input of those closest to me. You see, my sister has been working with videos ever since her uni days, same with her partner Michael who is also a music producer touring North America with various bands, and finally my multi-talented husband produced this very special track for my promo video. I couldn’t have asked for a better collaboration (Thanks guys, love you loads!) and I am so proud of what you are about to see, even though my voice does sound a little funny to me (but I think we all have that about our own recorded voices).
