It’s been so lovely getting to know Neil, Catherine and their handsome little Cato over the past few months. They say it takes a village to raise a child, and I’m honoured when I get to be a small part of that tribe. My goal is to provide a maternity & newborn portrait experience that’s about more than just taking photos.
Maternity and newborn clients come to the studio four times –
- First for gorgeous bump photos,
- Then they come back with their brand new baby.
- Once their photos are ready, they visit to choose their prints and images,
- Then finally they pick up their beautiful package and take the memories of their tiny person home.
Becoming a parent changes you and your relationship. It’s a whole new world filled with wonder, fatigue, cuddles, uncertainty and love. Going through this experience with my clients is delightful every time. They are trusting me to share their excitement and handle their tiny bundle of joy with as much love and care as they do.
These two were so natural and easy to photograph. So much love!
Oh so tiny, just for a short while. I love the way family photos highlight how small and new they are in those first few weeks.
Yep, this blog post has taken too long to get up – Cato is a Christmas baby! I enjoyed creating this simple and festive setup.
Which quickly converts to a regular setup without disturbing bub. How divine does he look in the warm olive and creams?
Little hints of a serious face…
This is my absolute favourite image from Cato’s session. Pure black and white snuggly perfection!
How delicious is this chocolate brown setup?
This beautiful blanket was Neil’s baby blanket.
And this one is Catherine’s! Both so stunning and such special items to include in Cato’s photos.
This lovely little blanket is made with a Scheepjes Whirl (in Blueberry Bam Bam colour). The pattern is The Bakewell Blanket.
And to finish, just classic and simple white.
The Finished Product – Print Your Photos!
Of course, what is a Little Stories Studio experience without beautiful artwork to hang on the wall?
I’m yet to work out the best way to photograph these metal prints – they look amaaaazzzing in person, but I can’t quite get the same effect in a photo!
If you’re looking for a photographer to be part of this exciting time for your family, I’d love to chat about the experience I offer and the images I can create for you.
