Welcoming your brand new baby into the world is a truly wonderful and life-changing milestone in your life. There are truly few words that can prepare you or describe the feeling of seeing that tiny little person for the first time and it’s my pleasure to be the one to capture those memories for you. I have been a Newborn Photographer for over 4 years now and this area of photography has undoubtedly become my favourite of all.For most, after leaving the hospital, visiting a newborn photographer is the first outing parents have with their new baby. This is one of the reasons it’s so important to me that I make this experience one of relaxation, happiness and fun for all family members and I commit to making sure every session is packed full of smiles, joy and heart-warming personal touches. My focus is your baby and less about the fancy decorations or backdrops. Poses and wraps are carefully executed to ensure your precious newborn is comfortable and warm throughout the entire session.I have spent countless hours studying and perfecting my baby posing, soothing, wrapping and handling techniques so you can have peace of mind that your little one is in the hands of an experienced professional who is very passionate about safety, well-being and comfort.One of the most frequently made comments I hear from parents during a newborn session is how relaxed, peaceful and comfortable my babies are while I pose and work with them.This sits so well with me considering there is a lot of misinterpretation regarding newborn posing; that it's unnatural, putting babies in props is dangerous and risking injuries etc. If you choose a professional who is obsessed with the safety and well being of your most precious little ones, who knows the anatomy of a newborn and their cues, development and range of movement then the babies are exactly how they appear to be - relaxed, peaceful, comfy and above all, safe.
Booking a newborn photoshoot with me is really quite simple. I take your due date and make a tentative booking for approximately one week after - this is what I like to call a "floating" appointment which means the date can be adjusted depending on whether your baby arrives earlier or later than expected.
The deposit is required to secure my availability when your baby has made his or her way into the world. This means your booking is given priority session placement (Saturday and Sunday included) and guarantees I will be able to do your newborn photography. No deposit, no guarantees - so don’t risk missing out!SOME KIND WORDS:”Couldn’t be more pleased with our photos, not to mention the entire experience! I was worried that my baby would cry through the shoot however Trae took charge & handled my baby the entire time ensuring she was calm & camera ready. I didn’t have to do anything. Lots of props & colours to choose from so we have a variety of photos that we’ll cherish forever. Price wise, very reasonable. I strongly recommend Trae, you won’t be disappointed! Thank you so much for everything” - Lina, 27th March 2019”Absolutely amazing!! Photos were beautiful, but the experience was what made it so enjoyable. Very calm and patient with unsettled baby and great communication and conversation with me. Made me feel very comfortable with the camera and in her studio. 10/10!” - Shaely, 15th June 2019”Our Newborn shoot went so well! Trae had some matchbox cars for our almost-2 year old to play with while baby was having photos. Trae was very professional and also personal which made our session feel really comfortable! We also couldn’t be more happier with the photos we received. Would recommend to everyone!!

• I understand that a photoshoot of your little one is an exciting experience and that you might like to share that experience with other family members, but please check with me before bringing anyone along to watch.1. My studio size only accommodates a certain number of people comfortably and I must comply with occupational health and safety laws in case of an emergency or fire.2. It's important that I have control over the environment during sessions to maintain a relaxed atmosphere. Too many people can be overwhelming for the child or a distraction meaning I can't get the most out of the session for you.
