Last week I had the absolute pleasure of meeting this adorable and sweet little girl, Lily, for her Newborn Portrait Session. She had a bit of a rough start to life, surprising her parents 6 weeks early. This was tough on her, as well as Mum and Dad, making her entrance with an emergency c-section. Weighing only 1.8 kg, she was tiny and spent some time in special care. However, she is proving to be feisty little fighter and was home and growing well when I was able to meet her at her place in Sutherland, NSW 🙂
However, she set the tone for our session straight away, when she “opened her bowels”, as they say, as SOON as I put her down in the first set up!! Cute as she is, she wasn’t really keen on having her photos taken. But, she persevered with me, and I did manage to get 1 or 2 absolutely adorable images for Mum and Dad to treasure.
We worked away in Lily’s lounge room, making the most of the beautiful natural light coming through the large glass doors. Although the space was small, we made it work, as Lily’s Mum & I juggled bub, backdrops and props during the session 🙂 Lily allowed me to play with some new ideas I had been imagining, including the flower wreath, below. As her Mum said, she stayed still “for a whole 4 seconds”, so I could take the shot. Several feed breaks gave me plenty of time to re-arrange the sets and try to keep my things from overflowing into the whole house. She was very co-operative that way.
I hope you enjoy this sneak peek of Lily’s Newborn Photographs!
