Isla | Brisbane newborn photographer

 This morning I met baby Isla - 15 days new and such a sweetheart! I also photographed Isla's big sister Charlotte a couple of years ago, and it was a delight to have everyone back in the studio to celebrate again. 

Even though 2.5yo Charlotte picked out a very special and very beautiful tulle dress especially for these photos, of course today she refused to wear it - or the other alternatives mum had brought just in case. The effort we put in to even trying on one of the dresses! Alas, these photos had to be taken in Charlotte's pyjamas - but you would hardly notice because look at those smiles! Her face was beaming (maybe it was because she knew she was The Boss today haha) and I'm just so glad we were able to get her to participate in photos - even without the stunning dress. 

Toddlers certainly bring a whole new set of challenges to a newborn session, and I always say to parents that we need to pick our battles - and thank goodness, having clients like today make it all worthwhile. We can share the challenges of parenting together and have a joke, even though the photos may not be exactly as we all hoped they would be, they are still amazingly beautiful and honest memories of this time. 

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.
