Upon arriving at Layla’s home, I was told that she was such a good baby, she only ever slept and that I would never get any images of her with her eyes open. The challenge was on!! And eventually, those eyes opened and my camera was ready! We even managed one gorgeous shot of her with a little smile of contentment – even though she was only 10 days old. I am continually amazed at the babies of today – they are all so beautiful, so peaceful (apart from little Harper, below this post) and seem so contented with their lives – even though most of the moms I have done photoshoots for are very busy with their work life as well as some who already have one child. Somehow these moms juggle everything so calmly that this passes on to the little babes. Hats off to those working moms for managing everything!!
Harper – 2018
This little cutie-pie was not in a very happy mood for most of her photosession, as we were trying to do it at that notoriously bad time of 6:30pm, when all babies seem to get very niggly for unknown reasons! But mom comforted her and sushed her, cuddled her, rocked her and fed her and with dad’s help, soon all was well with Harper and we managed some lovely shots of her!
Aila – 2017
Wow, what an amazing mop of black hair this gorgeous little girl has!! Such a good baby, not at all fazed by having her photo taken, she remained calm and at ease all the way through. Lovely parents of an awesome little girl!
Brother to Aiden (who is just 17 months) and just as gorgeous. The wonder and delight at having another little baby boy shone through with this awesome couple. The little 17 month old was full of fun and proved to be an aspiring photographer as I showed him how to take some images with my camera! And he didn’t do too badly either, let me tell you! It really was a fun and relaxed session and I keep on hoping that this couple will go for a third baby….just so I can have the absolute pleasure of photographing the whole family again!
Kara – 2017
This little girl was so very cute! And she just loved her daddy. Big sister, Mika was very shy but one could see that she loved her little sister.
This adorable little boy, Joshua, was so tiny and so very cute. He was super relaxed and didn’t cry once. The parents were full of love and Joshua obviously could feel that and was a very contented baby. Although only 3 weeks old when I photographed him, he seemed to enjoy spelling out his name with his blocks!
What a pleasure it was to photograph this gorgeous little girl and her friendly and loving parents! We had a super and relaxing time and baby Aemilia co-operated beautifully! It seemed as if the time flew by and all too soon the session was over. I always feel so inspired whenever I come away from a newborn photographic session as these little humans and the love they inspire give me great joy.
Aiden – 2016
Aiden is an amazingly relaxed little boy. So content and at peace! He also loves his mom to bits. Mom is also so relaxed and calm which explains why Aiden is so calm…until you try to change his clothes….then he objects!
Isabella did not like having various hats put on her head and told us so in no uncertain terms!! This is an awesome little lady with a will of her own and so beautiful too! Mom and Dad were totally cool with the various shots and I had a lot of fun taking the images of Isabella. We even managed one hat, one head band and a ballet outfit!!
Rylee is an adorable little boy, so awake and inquisitive as to what was going on around him. He has a very proud mom and dad and also a big brother who simply can’t wait to play with soccer with him!
Zahida – 2016
Zahida is a little beauty queen! With her startingly blue eyes she is going to turn many a head as she gets older! A little lady, with a will of her own, she definitely objected to the various outfits mom wanted to dress her in, but soon calmed down and smiled and gurgled and faced the camera like a professional!
Mogamat – 2016
Mogamat loved being bathed! He gurgled away and smiled at his mom all the way through bathtime and once dressed just wanted his milk and then it was off to the land of Nod! A beautiful little boy with very proud mom and dad, sisters and brother!
Maahira – 2016
Another one of my adorable little “models” – Maahira. She handled the photo shoot like a professional and never once complained, but always seemed to smile and have such a mischievous look! What a pleasure and privilege it was to photograph her with her very friendly mom, dad, sister and brother.
Callum – 2016
Callum – 12 months – 2017
Such a naughty face! Callum is really fun to photograph as he was fascinated by the camera and kept on crawling right up to me and peering intently into the lens! His 1st birthday bash was a fun affair with family and it was my pleasure to meet them all!
Caitlin at 4 weeks – 2016
What an adorable little girl Caitlin is! So good, so peaceful and so very content – a real tribute to her relaxed parents who were full of fun ideas as well! Eventually, after one and a half hours of labour, Caitlin fell asleep surrounded by her toys!!
Caitlin at 3 months – 2016
Caitlin at 6 months -2017
Caitlin at 10 months – 2017
Caitlin at 18months -2018
What a privilege it was for me to be asked to take Caitlin’s 18 month old milestone images. I have photographed Caitlin since she was a newborn, as you can see from the images posted above these and she continues to be as gorgeous as ever with a really beautiful and peaceful nature. Such an awesome little girl.
