When my clients see me for their newborn's photo session, I usually like to ask how they found me, and why they chose to book me. It's a great insight for me to understand what people think of my work, and what they think sets me apart from other newborn photographers in Sydney. And since I first started out over 10 years ago, there sure are a lot out there these days! Time and time again I hear the same words being repeated in their reasoning for choosing me - NATURAL.
Natural Newborn Photos in Sydney
It seems to be a common theme - many of my clients choose me to be their photographer because my photos are quite natural. I use minimal props - perhaps one basket or simple prop per baby photo shoot. I have always leaned towards minimalistic looking photographs. This just seems to have always been my style.
Natural Light Baby Photography
Many years ago, I used to be a natural light photographer. All my maternity and newborn baby photo shoots were done in my home studio using my loungeroom windows as the light source. For the past 6 or so years however, I have been using studio lights. In the way that I use my lighting, it's my aim that you shouldn't really be able to tell the difference between natural light photography and studio light photography. Especially now since I use a big wall of LED lighting in my photo studio. Some of my clients have actually mistaken it for a real window and are amazed when I tell them it's actually an artificial light source.

I would love to hear from you.
