Sweet Scarlett {Brisbane Newborn Photographer}

As so many of you know, I had the absolute pleasure of witnessing the birth of my littlest niece, Scarlett, nearly three weeks ago. It was a beautiful, amazing experience; one which I’m so very thankful for. ¬†Well, as a natural course of events, I also had an opportunity to spend a few days capturing the essence of little Scarlet, from the baby fuzz on her ears to her tiny little toes. She truly is, as all newborns are, a wonder like nothing else. Sigh. I never tire, no matter how physically taxing they are to photograph (and they are), of capturing these tiny, new little souls.

Before I share all the beautiful pictures I had the opportunity to take, I had a bit of fun with a few images I’ve wanted to capture for a good while after being inspired by Baby As Art (wonderful American newborn photographers). I think my little animation (and please note I’m no animator and it’s a very simple approach – but you get the drift) describes the effect perfectly.

Meet, miss Scarlett, a true individual. She’s a feisty little sausage, who smiles a million smiles. She has wonderful soft skin, beautiful blue eyes, and a head of hair I could only dream my three would have (alas they were practically bald). Born with her hand up by her face, it was only fitting she would try to keep it there at every opportunity. She was delightful to photograph (except for the excess washing she seemed to always leave behind!).

Naturally, I could not stop at one, or two images, so you get to see at least one third of all the beauty I managed to see through my lens.

Ohh…and for those photographers (or mummies) looking for fab hats, you can get them HERE.
