"Great experience. Lu was fantastic with the whole family & patient with both kids especially our toddler who didn’t feel like getting her photos taken. Lu still managed to get the most beautiful shots of them that we will cherish for ever."
How are we almost at the end of June already? Where did the last three months go?
I plan to slow things down in July and some of August, to soak up more time with Anya before she starts a new school year with an extended day. From the end of August my studio newborn, baby milestone and maternity sessions will start in the mornings, around 10am, so that I can pick Anya up in the afternoons after the session is over.
I am forever grateful that my clients are understanding and flexible around my family commitments; supporting my endeavours to be a working mum who is present at least half my day with my kids. What does that look like? Sometimes I dash upstairs to quickly cuddle and feed Lucas to help him with his nap (especially if he is teething), while my client's baby is having a top up feed. Sometimes if the session has run longer with the newborn needing more cuddles and soothing, so that we could just get a few more compositions, Anya might walk in bashfully hiding behind my knee after she gets home from kindy, before she runs upstairs for her bath. Sometimes, it's just being flexible and waiting one more day for an edited gallery, because my kids were both sick for a week and I had just been running on empty. To all my clients who appreciate the craft and art behind what I do, I am grateful for your support.
This session is to celebrate baby Lily. Her photo session was an absolute dream, and I came out of it riding a high, impatiently wanting to get her soft proof gallery across to her parents. In all my seasons, I endeavour to capture their little one and family together to create the kind of gallery that I would love to have of my own family. A beautifully creative, timeless set of images to celebrate one of the most specialist times in their lives. Baby Lily's collection is exactly what I strive to try and achieve for my clients. My heart did a little happy dance when I was loading the images off my camera. I was just swooning over the posed portion of her session with all her little details. What made it that little bit extra special? The captures of her with her sister and the sweet moments of sibling love. There is so much warmth and love in the family portraits. I have so many favourites of baby Lily. I just wouldn' know where to start, so here are some of them...
WHO IS BEHIND LULLABY IMAGES?
Hi! I am Lu, a Hong Kong based photographer specialising exclusively in newborn and baby portraits from my home studio in Clear Water Bay. I have been a photographer since 2000, establishng Lullaby Images in 2016 after extensive training in newborn baby posing and baby safety. I am a mum to a fiercely independent pre-schooler and a baby boy born in December 2020. With both professional and personal experience with tiny humans, baby safety and comfort is at the heart of all my photo sessions.
I am fully booked until August 2021.
Only two spots left for September and 4 spots left for October 2021 remaining.
Sometimes additional photo sessions are made available at the end of the month, for the following booking month. After I have updates from my confirmed clients regarding their pregnancies and birth plans, I am sometimes able to wiggle in 1-2 more sessions. If you would like to be waitlisted for these, please do get in contact.
I hate saying 'no', so please help me say it less by reaching out to talk about your newborn photography session well before your due date. I only take on a limited number of bookings a month
and many Mamas reach out to me in their first & second trimester to book in their sesion.
