Let me introduce you to Maya and Maya to the world. Maya is the first newborn baby to Kalyan and Lavania. Three weeks old today she is a first generation Australian baby for both families. Maya was born on the fifth of February at 12:15pm weighing 7 pounds and already seems to be quite determined and particular about how she likes to get things done. Her plumpy little newborn cheeks and big juju lips are to so adorable you cannot help but want to photograph this baby over and over again.

I don’t normally photograph in the studio, but Kalyan and Lavania wanted to get some newborn photographs in the studio to really capture this stage in her life before she becomes more mobile and we do the visual story. Maya posed beautifully in her butterfly wings and let both Mum and Dad hold her in an assortment of irregular poses.

Already Maya expresses her thoughts by pursing her lips when she’s had enough to drink, or pulling her hands free of her swaddle so she can sleep with some swagger. This girl has come out of the womb with her own personality and style. How gorgeous does she look in her new pair of wings! Here are a few highlights from the shoot. Thank you for allowing us to put you in all sorts of positions today Maya – you are an absolute delight to be around and be absorbed into your tiny little all encompassing world. I can’t wait for our visual story with you, so I can share with everyone how adorable you are!

Any guesses on who she looks like so far?

Well what can I say about Maddie and her gorgeous son Fraser. These two are an absolute delight to be around! Words cannot ever express the joy these two share together in their days. Which is why I attempted a visual story capturing a typical day in their household, how they spend their day together, the things they do, the fun they have, the bond they have, the songs they sing, how they dance. These kinds of visual stories and photographs are what I live to share – these moments between friends and family capturing the relationships at their most genuine presentation.

For most of the afternoon it was like I wasn’t even there, I was just capturing them together. Maddie and Fraser have a special bond that is very obvious. Being around them is an infectious sense of adventure, fun and excitement. I wanted to join in in their dancing and singing, I wanted to play hide and seek and run around carefree.

Fraser is a genuinely caring and loving boy. I’ve never seen so much love from a young boy for his mum before! I am so inspired and truly amazed by their relationship, their fun, Fraser’s energy and Maddie’s ability to turn life into an adventure that never ends. I can’t really say any more than this except to say have a look for yourself at how beautiful these two really are.

Big Love to you both. Can’t wait to see you again soon.
