We met the Stimoli's at The Baby & Toddler Show in Sydney when we had our stand there in September. It was lovely to welcome them into the studio and photograph their new baby boy with his two adoring big sisters. They were a lovely family to photograph with lots of smiles and cuddles from everyone throughout the session.
It was a pleasure to see Beth and Ian when Kadi arrived. I don't think I've ever laughed so much through a newborn session. It is lovely to see new parents so relaxed and enjoying every second with their little girl. I love that they are just so in love with little Kadi.
Just before Christmas , there was a sudden rush of newborns. I love being able to capture newborn babies as this is such a fleeting moment. This is Levi, at 9 days old. His mum was my daughter Millie's teacher in prep, so it was lovely to be able to capture this very special time for them in becoming a family.
On Saturday I got to meet 3 week old Laila. We photographed Caroline's and Ben's wedding exactly a year ago, and they now have a gorgeous little girl. I am so excited for them. Laila decided that she wanted lots of cuddles when I was there and who could resist :)
I got to meet this sweet little man at just 5 days of age. His mum called to book in the session while she was in hospital waiting to have a cesarean, the first time I have ever had a call that close to a baby being born :) His big brother and sister are just lovely with him, I am sure he is going to grow up very loved by them
I got to meet Charlie on Friday, he is the sweetest little bub of one of our past bride and grooms, Laura and Andrew. I love watching our couples become a family :)
Taylor was our second newborn from Little Heroes 2009. She was only 7 days old and looked so peaceful as she slept... The great news is that Taylor's mum has already booked her in for a Little Heroes 2010 session! It's such a great idea to have her in more than one book because it will document her growing up while helping out Bear Cottage at the same time. Such a beautiful way to do this and we couldn't be more grateful to have them return this year. If you were in the 2009 book and would like to come back for 2010, just give us a call to make an appointment. And of course we're still taking brand new faces for the 2010 book, so call us on 9499 8797 to make a booking!
Amelia was just 2 weeks old at the time of her shoot last year. Her session was the first ever Little Heroes shoot as well!
Following their maternity session, Bernadette and Ben brought brand new baby Liesel to the studio for their newborn session. Liesel's older brother and sister (Finn and Adele) were so gentle and careful with her which was beautiful to see. Here are some of our favourites....
Jess and her family came into the studio for baby Soren's newborn session. We can already see that his big brother and sister, Xavier and Zara, are going to be great at looking after him!
