Newborn Session - Baby Archie https://www.roxyleephotography.com.au/blog/2018/7/newborn-session---baby-archie I was so excited when little Archie's mummy contacted me telling me that she was expecting a baby and wanted me to capture him when he was born. I first met Jade and Andrew back in 2014 when I did a couples session for them. I was so happy that they came back to me with their first born, and I so loved that I got to capture this special time for them all. Archie was an absolute dream to photograph, he is just so handsome and was so squishy and slept his entire session! I hope to see them all again soon.

Newborn session - Baby Skyla https://www.roxyleephotography.com.au/blog/2018/5/newborn-session---baby-skyla I first met this gorgeous family when they were expecting their first, and I was lucky enough to capture that very special time for them. So when they contacted me to tell me that they were expecting their second baby, and that they wanted me to capture this special time for them as well, I was over the moon! I just had to share some snippets of their maternity session as it was so much fun, and they just had a ball together on the beach. I so loved being able to capture it all for them to keep forever! 

 

 

Little Skyla is absolutely stunning, and was such a dream to photograph. Her big brother Kobi wasn't as keen for photos, but we worked really hard to make sure we captured some beautiful shots of him with his brand new baby sister. I really loved capturing all that is Skyla at only a few days old, and I really hope I get to see them all again one day!

What to expect during a newborn session with Roxy Lee Photography https://www.roxyleephotography.com.au/blog/2018/3/what-to-expect-during-a-newborn-session-with-roxy-lee So you have just found out you are pregnant, you're over the moon and you spend the next few weeks organising bringing a little one into your life with nursery themes, doctors appointments, hospital visits and more! Now that you have everything sorted and you are feeling a little more organised and together, you now know its time to find that special photographer to capture the first few days of your brand new baby. You want those little details to be remembered forever, those wrinkles, rolls, and those squishy lips. That fleeting moment where your baby fitted so perfectly in your arms. 

This is not an easy task, there are so many photographers out there - all I can say is LOVE your photographers work. Go through their portfolio and ensure it is consistent. These are after all images that you are going to have for a lifetime, and you want to fall in love again and again every time you see them. Ask them questions - not just about price but questions about immunisation, safety, the environment they are photographing your baby, and their years of experience. It is so so important picking the right person for you and your family, you need to feel comfortable and you also need to know that your baby is going to be safe, content and secure during their session.

I have been working with children my whole life, and started newborn photography in 2013. My goal was not only to be able to capture beautiful images for you to hold dear forever, but also to ensure that I kept newborns safe and secure at all times. I attend training's and workshops to ensure I keep up to date with my posing and newborn safety - this is so, so important!

I feel so, so lucky to have this talent, and pinch myself that I get to be a part of families lives in this way. There is so much joy in the arrival of a baby, and I am honestly so grateful I get to capture this special time for families.

 My studio is the perfect environment for photographing newborns. I keep it cosy and warm, and you are able to relax whilst watching me photograph your tiny baby. All family members are included in my sessions, and I highly encourage parents and siblings to have their photos taken too. Its such an amazing and important time! 

Once you have made contact, I will pencil in your due date. This is so I have an idea of when we will be photographing your baby. Of course I completely understand that babies come on their own time and I am 100% flexible too. I also offer to do a maternity session as part of your newborn package, as I do love to meet families before the session so that they feel that little bit more comfortable at the newborn session (especially young children) 

Once your baby arrives and you contact me, we set up a date that works for you and your family to do the session. Usually around the first 6 - 12 days after baby is born. Why so early? Well it unfortunately doesn't take long for your brand new baby to grow! As the weeks go on, it becomes harder to get them nice and sleepy, and then it becomes harder to pose them. You also miss out on capturing when they are just so teeny, and can fit in your hands, they are only ever this teeny once after all!

I then send out a preparation email letting you know everything that you need to bring along, a run down of the session and the studio address etc. 

When photo day arrives, I have my studio nice, cosy and warm, drinks ready in the fridge and little set ups ready to go for your little one. When you come into the studio I will ask you if you have any colour preference or poses that you would particularly like so that I can ensure I try to get those for you. I discuss the process, if there are siblings we photograph them first always. I discuss the importance of letting your little one lead the session, and that I never push a baby into any poses. 

I have a workflow that I follow to ensure I am capturing all those beautiful poses and also those little details, such as eyelashes, fingers, toes and lips. If your little one is a little unsettled then I spend plenty of time settling and soothing, I also take opportunity for awake shots, as these are a real favourite!   

Your gorgeous bub will spend most of the session undressed (hence why I keep the studio warm) and a nappy-less baby does sometimes come with accidents. Don't stress, it happens! I do put a nappy on for sibling shots, family shots and wrapped shots though. We have plenty of time during the session to sooth, feed and cuddle your baby. I want everyone relaxed and happy, that is so so important.

Once the session is complete, I then work on your images. This takes up to 3 weeks, as each image is created to become a work of art you would proudly display in your home for all to see. 

You do however receive your beautiful birth announcement video in a matter of days, this allows you to share with friends and family some beautiful shots of your little one whilst they are still brand new.

Thank-you for taking the time to read a little about me, and my process when photographing babies. If you have any questions please feel free to ask, my email is roxyleephotography@hotmail.com.au - or you can contact my through my website or on Facebook. 

I look very forward to hearing from you, and possibly capturing this amazing and oh so exciting time for you.

Newborn photo session with baby Sahyuri https://www.roxyleephotography.com.au/blog/2018/2/newborn-photo-session-with-baby-sahyuri I had such a lovely time with this gorgeous baby girl and her family, who have only just recently moved from Mount Isa to Brisbane. Oh my goodness little Sahyuri is just so beautiful, and I am so happy that her family asked me to capture this special time for them. I had serious eyelash envy during her session. She was just a dream to photograph, even giving me some beautiful stares for awake shots before her sleepy shots. Her grandma attended the session too so we were able to get some lovely photos of them together. I cant wait to see her again for her next session. x
