I am proud to announce my new site for newborn portraiture work. I absolutely love to photograph children, especially newborn babies. I love their peacefulness, their innocence, sensitive…brand – new babies remind us of the miracle of birth and pictures bring back the beauty of those moment. For years I have been asked to create images for parents, families and always enjoyed this style of work and creativity.

I was so excited to see this gorgeous little man and his family again to celebrate his First Birthday. I met him last year for his newborn session. I still remember it like it was yesterday… Julek was perfect model. Big thank you to his Mummy for making this session possible and for driving all this way! Happy Birthday Julek! Today little sneak peek…ENJOY!!
I was delighted to meet beautiful little Jessica. She was so wonderful. As always a big thanks to Parents for bringing their little girl. I am so blessed to have been chosen to photograph these precious and passing quickly moments in her young baby’s life. Thank you.
Baby’s safety always comes first! As a newborn photographer my number one priority is the safety of the baby during session. It is very important to be educated on a pose you are going to try and to educate new or soon to be parents that what they see in my gallery is not always as it seems. There is more behind the image then you can see! Newborn photographers must know difference between safety, poses, composites, etc. All parents who come to me are entrusting me with their new baby, their precious thing in their life. I want everyone to be safe and if it means extra editing time to get that spectacular pose, I will do it! I treat my clients exactly how I would my own children. You should never put a baby up on something high off the ground. Or let a baby just learning to stand, hold on the something and let go of said baby just for a picture. They will inevitable fall and get hurt. One false move can devastate our photography business forever. Taking the extra time to make a composite is well worth it to know the baby was never in any danger. When choosing a newborn photographer you should always ask them how they get the types of pictures as seen below. If they say they are not composites, please stay away from this photographer! If the baby in the picture looks uncomfortable that is a warning that the baby’s comfort and safety were not put first.
Below are some pictures of before and after. The SOOC pictures are “Straight Out Of Camera”, and the POST pictures are after post processing has been completed. The official term for these kind of photos are “composites”.
First image is quite simple. In order to get the baby’s head straight and not falling over, the baby’s head is resting on the assistant/parent’s finger. The finger is then edited out later on.
This second image of the hands under the chin pose is two photos merged together. One picture is holding the head and the other is holding the hands together. There is never a time during this pose that an adults hand is not supporting the baby.
And now is BEHIND THE SCENE. You will see in the SOOC picture that I’ve marked where things are:
