Hello Baby Ari | Singapore Newborn Film

The first 24 hours with my new baby ... what I would give to be able to literally look back at this time, and remember all the funny little details that got swept away with the exhilaration and exhaustion.  Tiny finger grabs ... jerky limbs ... little tongue starting to root ... the tender, hesitant touch of loved ones as yet unaccustomed to handling this brand new being.

I hope this little film helps Kirsten and Jonathan do just that - watch, reminisce, and perhaps even feel a twinge of nostalgia at the first day they spent with the first child they had.

Hello Baby Anouk | Singapore Newborn Photography

This sweet family has literally not been far from my thoughts for the last 2 months.  "You will be our first ever family photographer" ... these words came early in our communications, and created more than a little nervousness in me.  Two beautiful children, with one more on the way, and no impetus to hire a professional photographer until now!  

Some sneaky maternity photos and two newborn shoots later, I think we managed to get more than a few personal and intimate images to record this special time in all their lives.  In the short time that I have spent with this family, I can already tell that Anouk will be brought up in an environment full of laughter, play, earnest discourse and mutual understanding.  I particularly love the energy and joy that her siblings have for life, and the calm and inclusive way in which her parents engage the children.  Hopefully some day I will be lucky enough to see how she has grown, and how her siblings have matured into their roles.

Just as I was their introduction to family and newborn photography, they were also exactly what I was looking for to trial a new little endeavour of mine ... Please check out this little clip of stills and motion from their in-hospital session, when Anouk was but a young 'un of 12 hours!  Highlights from their in-home session are just below that.

Hello Baby Leo | Singapore Newborn Photographer

So not only did I get to spend part of New Year’s Eve with this newly-minted family of three … I got to document them going home together for the first time. Ever. That just blows my mind - their trust in my work, and their openness and generousity, to grant me such intimacy and then to allow me to share a sliver of it publicly.

Everyone who knows them personally already knows how much this little fellow is loved. If these images seem full of peace, contentment and tranquility, it is entirely because of them. To the Dzakpasus - much love to all of you and all the best on this new adventure!
