Being a mom to a brand new infant is challenging especially with a toddler running around. Louise was super accommodating to me and my hectic life and we managed to plan the shoot via WhatsApp. The whole set up was amazing and everything felt very relaxed and chilled. She had a few tips and tricks to get my oldest in the photos as well. The pictures came back fast and were absolutely stunning! She captured my son perfectly. I can’t wait to hang these images all over my house (and my families bourse as well).

This tiny human was definitely one of the bigger bundles of squish I have had the pleasure of photographing. Born 9.2lbs, our session was scheduled when he was only 18 days new and the colour palate for the sessions was what I call a lovely 'greige' (grey meets taupe), to match his nursery. This lucky boy has a beautiful bigger sister who is a little under two years old. I love photographing siblings together, they are always one of the most cherished images from the final collection for the family and usually the ones that get turned into beautiful wall art. There is a large safety consideration when photographing toddlers and newborns together. It's all about age appropriate guided poses, and when needed, a little support hand from mum or dad (which gets edited out in photoshop!). Over the years I have developed a few little tricks that I keep up my sleeve to get wonderful sibling portraits. Every toddler is different and it's very much about understanding what they love to get them looking at the camera.
My heart always does a happy dance when the parents love their collection and give such wonderful feedback. I truly love what I do and I am so lucky to be able to do it, also allowing me to spend so much time with my own Anya. Here are a few sneak peek images from our bespoke newborn photography session at their home last month.
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.
