"Lu did an amazing job capturing our family. She was so calm and good handling both the baby and the dogs, which both can be temperamental. It was so hard to choose the final pictures to edit from the gallery as she captured so many amazing moments. I would recommend her for all mums!"
-Lucinda, Mama of baby Ottavia
I love lifestyle sessions. I don't actually end up doing them as often as I would love though. The main reason being only because Lullaby Images has grown into a Hong Kong photography brand synonymous with traditional newborn posing, done safely. My style looks simple, even though so much goes into every image to make it look natural and timeless. I don't hide being busy colour themes and props, I focus on simplicity, so that what matters most shines through - your little one. I do love Lifestyle newborn photography sessions too though. They focus more heavily on the human connection and love in a family. It's about finding the great light in someone's home, and harnessing that to capture the love that only a new baby can bring. My lifestyle sessions are a mix of candid moments, guided poses to make the most of my time with you and I like to slip in a few posed newborn images, despite not bringing my newborn posing equipment that I usually only bring to a bespoke photography session. I love using the parent's hands and also using the parent as the frame to pose the baby, instead of my posing frame. It could be anything from hands on chin pose, positioned on the parents shoulder like the image above or in their hands. Or bum up pose on the parents chest... and actually with the right light, can look even more striking then when posed more traditionally on a blanket.
Here are a few highlight images from baby Octavia's lifestyle home newborn photography session a couple of weeks back. For a little one only 16 days new, she was so alert and I just adore this wide eyed image of her, on her mum's shoulder looking straight into the camera.
I am a Hong Kong based photographer specialising exclusively in newborn and baby portraits, establishing Lullaby Images in 2016. I have extensive training in newborn baby posing and safety. I am a mum to a fiercely independent toddler who loves little adventures. With both professional and personal experience with tiny humans, baby safety and comfort is at the heart of all my photo sessions.
I hate saying 'no'. 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 second trimester to book in their session.
