Leela // Newborn Photography Melbourne

Meet the girl with all the hair….Leela!

I had so much fun photographing Leela this week. Not only is she absolutely gorgeous with that incredible head of hair, her Mum and I just chatted for the whole session like we had known each other forever!

After having a run of boys in the studio, it was divine photographing this little cherub. And whilst she slept like a dream for the first half, it was party time after that!

Awake babies are definitely harder to photograph as they can’t see very far in front of them which means lots of cross eyed looks and funny faces! Leela however, looked straight at me and allowed me to capture her beautiful nature and those incredible eyes as the perfect keepsake for her parents to keep forever.

I know these images are definitely going to be cherished and will look beautiful placed around the walls in their home.

Congratulations Lakshmi and Vinay, I cannot wait to photograph her again when she is sitting!

Meet Oscar! This little one was so excited to come into this world that he arrived 5 weeks early and in such a rush! What a beautiful surprise though because everyone was so excited to meet him, including big brother Will who I also photographed as a newborn over 2...
