Newborn Photography: Burpengary Baby Photos
Date: 5th July 2016
Location: At Home in Burpengary
Maybe it’s because I’m a Dad that I love doing newborn photography so much! Or maybe it’s just because squishy newborn babies are just so cute and much fun to photograph!
Melissa and Zane emailed me a few weeks ago asking if I was free to photograph their beautiful new arrival – and just how beautiful is she!
And she was so well behaved too! She didn’t mind having a stranger taking baby photos, and even slept most of the time! Melissa did very well and made my job a lot easier well by having the room nice and warm and she had given her beautiful girl a good feed before I got there!
How incredibly beautiful does she look with the make-up brush and Mum’s pearls?!
And this must be the bravest thing I have ever seen! Melissa even brought out her beautiful silk wedding dress for some shots! Happily it remained unharmed!
Melissa and Zane got married a year ago so their wedding rings were brought out for a few photos! What an incredible selection of photographs they will have from this last twelve months: wedding photos and newborn photos! I know I’m biased but I really can’t emphasise the importance of capturing these milestones – having a family portrait photography session once a year really does allow you to look back in years to come and remember more clearly what everyone looked like and how everyone’s changed!
Baby Photos: Naz, Mohammed and Medinah

Everyone loves baby photos: babies are tiny, cute and gorgeous so it is little surprise that every parent loves receiving beautiful photos of their baby a few weeks after their arrival!
Happily Naz and Mohammed were well prepared and got in touch a few weeks before Medinah’s arrival to arrange a photo shoot for when she was just a few days old. Well how cute does she look! We did some studio photos with the family and got some beautiful baby photos using my props: baskets, blankets, and wraps. For around ten minutes! They say you should never work with babies – but sometimes that’s just part of the fun! Medinah had other plans that day and wasn’t as interested in having her photo taken as Mum and dad were!
We persevered and got some absolutely beautiful shots but maybe not as many as we would have liked so a week or two later I was back and what a difference a week makes!
Medinah already looked bigger and more alert but happily she was sleeping. We managed to get the majority of the cute sleeping baby photos you see here, but then she decided to see what the fuss was all about!
Her big brown eyes make for gorgeous portrait photos and I think my faves are actually the ones where she is awake!
Naz had some lovely props too – headbands, wraps and clothing – so we had a bit of a dress up and grabbed some photos as we went.
And no newborn photo shoot is complete without the details – we grabbed some photos of Medinah’s tiny feet and hands.
Medinah was so well behaved and didn’t cry once – I think she must have been used to the limelight by then! The morning went so well and we got some amazing baby photos:) Until next time, guys! 😉
