Baby Photographs: Amelia’s Baby Shoot
Date: April 2017
We all love baby photographs! Newborns are so photogenic, so cute and so cuddly and it is every Mum and Dad’s wish to capture some amazing baby photographs of their beautiful newborn before they get too big!
Happily A Thousand Miles Photography specialise in baby photographs and newborn photography and can capture your beautiful new arrival in the comfort of your own home! We have several newborn photography package options, including the option of visiting our studio in Alexandra Hills, and for us to do the photo shoot in the comfort of your own home!
We have a fantastic array of blankets, wraps and baskets to make the shoot run smoothly and we do recommend bringing along any toys and props that you would like to have in the photographs.
I knew Kelly and Rob from a couples photo shoot we had done earlier in the year so I leapt at the chance to capture Amelia, their beautiful new arrival!
We did the photos at their place in Birkdale and were rewarded with great light and a well behaved Little Miss!
We managed to get some sleeping shots, some waking photos, some photos with Mum and Dad and some baby photos of Amelia in her own room. The great thing about doing a newborn photo shoot with us is that you get the high resolution images on a disc, so there’s no need to dig out crumpled, old photos on their 21st birthday!
Brisbane Newborn Photographer:
Location: Wynnum West
Date: January 2018
I love being a Brisbane Newborn Photographer! There is something so amazingly rewarding about capturing something so gorgeous, so delicate and so beautiful and I never see a job as work!
I think having two of my own helps! I know how the meltdowns go, and when to hold off from the photos to allow Bub the chance to feed or have a cuddle. Moreover, I don’t stress when the meltdowns do happen; it is all a natural part of being a Brisbane newborn photographer!
Happily I didn’t have to stress with our beautiful little model, Jasmine! She was a star from the start with minimal fuss and managing to sleep almost all the way through her newborn photo shoot!
It also helped that Mum and Dad were superstars too! Derek and Belinda were very calm (even if Derek did insist on pulling out his Liverpool FC scarf! Red rag to a bull for a Manchester United support like myself!) and had a lot of fun throughout the newborn photography session.
We finished up the session with some family photographs, then we left Jasmine to sleep without the camera!
A few days following the newborn photo shoot, I received a card in the post from Mum and Dad with a photo of jasmine on the front and a touching message inside. That is what it is all about! When your job allows you to do something as amazing and meaningful as newborn photography, then you know your job is a lot of fun!
Dear Andy, Just a short note to sat thank you for the beautiful photos you took of Jasmine and us – we are really delighted with them and they will give us some wonderful memories. Belinda, Derek and Jasmine
Family Photographs: With a NewBorn Photo Session!
Location: Heritage Park
Date: 24th February 2017
They always say never work with children and animals, but quite frankly neither bothers me in the slightest, especially when the children are as awesome and well behaved as Gyorgyi’s four kids! I was in Heritage Park to capture some family photographs, and I knew with a welcome as warm as that, it was going to be a great family portrait session!
I headed to their beautiful house in Heritage Park early one warm morning and was greeted by three beaming and cheeky smiles! I grabbed some photos of the kids on the stairs first – an impromptu game of ‘Peekaboo’ raised a few smiles and laughs; even from Mum and dad!
Gyorgyi and Roman’s newborn son joined us for a few shots – what a well behaved little boy he is! And so easy to photograph! Newborn photography shoots are usually punctuated by tears but we didn’t have any at all!
He slept the whole time, and even allowed Mum to change his clothes and get some nudey shots! He wasn’t overly keen on the baskets (Gyorgyi had brought some of her own – it’s always nice to have some new props to photograph!) so we let him chill on the blankets instead!
Roman had to work that day so we worked quickly and got some great family photographs. The kids were especially well behaved and keen to have their photo taken and they didn’t even tire or get bored as we progressed through the morning!
I love close up shots – capturing the details on a newborn photo shoot – and can this little dude grip on to Mum’s hand!
In general the more people there are in a photo the more challenging it becomes! Blinking becomes more prevalent of course, but these guys rocked!
We grabbed some photos on the stairs, the couch and then headed outside to a fantastic mango tree.
Hi Andy, thanks for the photos, they look very good, I already heave done a bunch of printouts.
But altogether thank you for your service, you jumped even with such a short notice. Gyorgyi
Baby Photos: Naz, Mohammed and Medinah
Date: 10th and 25th April 2016
Location: Logan Reserve
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! 😉
