Lifestyle photography turns the traditional newborn photography model on its head by ditching the props and photographing a newborn in its natural habitat.That’s the style I like. No awkward posing, backdrops, and no menagerie of props. For me, this is what newborn photography is about. Real, natural moments. I don’t think there is anything more beautiful or perfect.

This gorgeous little family invited me to capture some pretty special moments in their lives. Alana was 11 days old and I guess you could say she wasn’t as cooperative as her parents were hoping for but I didn’t mind that one bit to be honest. Such is life. So I captured the real thing. Here are some of my favourites from the shoot.
