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?
