nathaniel | melbourne newborn photographer

A chilly old day in Melbourne today and the perfect time to sit down at my computer and get stuck into some blogging. I am so excited to share some of the beautiful newborn and family sessions I have had over the past little while and this one in particular was one of my favourites for 2016.

What makes it a favourite? Well to start with the house was superb!!  An unassuming cream brick house in Melbourne and once inside it was filled to the brim with love and life and everything that makes you feel like you have stepped deep into someones life. This was a home that was so unique and quirky to this family. Christina has an incredible eye for putting beautiful collections of art and books and family treasures together, giving old things a new lease of life and putting her own personal touch to absolutely everything. I just loved it!

These guys were so comfortable with themselves and each other and it made the session such a pleasure. We chatted and chatted and it honestly felt like we had known each other for a very long time but that is just the type of people they were. Relaxed, easy going and very very welcoming. Nathaniel, our focus for the morning, was so wide awake. In fact I think the couple of pictures we got of him "sleeping" were really just flukes as he just happened to have his eyes closed as I clicked the shutter. Gotta be happy with that! He was a very busy teeny tiny boy who has a bit of work to do to fill up his skin ... And that is exactly what he wanted to do all morning. FEED FEED FEED. Just as well they have a big comfy couch because I think Christina is going to be spending a lot of time there while he works on filling up his legs! Without doubt this little man has the very best newborn knees I have ever seen ...
