Late last year I made a commitment to myself that I would invest some of my resources in to improving my newborn photography. Part of my plan involved finding a newborn workshop to attend. And like is often the way of the universe, exactly what I needed appeared in my inbox at the exact right moment. I nervously booked in to a workshop with award winning photographer Kelly Brown, you can check out some of her stunning work here.
So finally a few weeks ago, the time rolled around for me to actually attend the workshop (yay to a weekend by myself in Sydney!). It was every bit as amazing as I had hoped it would be. We covered every single aspect of newborn photography, including (and I feel most importantly) infant safety. Being around people who are as passionate as you are about something is such a joyful experience. And we all know how much I absolutely adore babies.
In the lead up to my workshop I put the call out on Facebook for a newborn model so that I would be able to consolidate everything I had learned as soon as possible. My inbox was absolutely inundated with emails and messages from expectant parents. I would have loved to be able to say yes to everyone, but eventually I settled on this little guy.
I couldn’t have asked for a better model call. They followed everything I had asked in order to prepare for the session and they were happy and relaxed. And most of all they were really happy and willing to be involved in the process. Photographing babies is time consuming and requires patience. I always give a guideline on how long it might take, but sometimes it simply takes longer. My priority is always first and foremost on the safety and comfort of the baby.
I’m absolutely in love with the images. Expecting a newborn soon? Book your session here
