Ondray | Brisbane newborn photographer

This beautiful family came to visit me in the studio today, welcoming their third baby boy! There is a special story behind this session - I like to say that the universe brought mum Emesha and I together one morning at the local playground. I was there with my youngest boy, we stopped for a quick play after walking my older two boys to school. My son had been such a terror that morning and I was already well and truly over parenting (at 8.45 in the morning haha!).

Emesha was there with her youngest at the time, and had just recently found out that she was almost 4 months pregnant - a huge surprise! Although she didn't know for sure it was another boy - she had strong feelings that it was. So we sat there for a few hours while our boys played - I commiserated with her about having a surprise third pregnancy (as I was in that same position 5 years ago!) and about the possibility of having three boys - and not ever having a daughter.

I casually dropped into the conversation that I was a newborn photographer (haha), and we worked out that we only lived a couple of minutes apart. Over the next few months we chatted at school pickup and celebrated children's birthdays, and now here we are! The family welcomed their third beautiful boy last weekend and I was so honoured to photograph them all together as a new family of five.

Ondray's big brothers are just so proud and and loving towards him - it was so beautiful to see them together! What a stunning family they make.

Newborn photos are best done while your baby is still small and sleepy, usually under 3 weeks of age. It is essential to book while still pregnant. If you'd like any more information on my newborn sessions, please contact me and I'll be in touch.
