Hello Baby Spencer | Singapore Newborn Film | Singapore Newborn Photography

When I say that this film speaks for itself, I mean that in an almost literal sense.  Video can be so much more than just a picture with motion - it has the ability to bring back memories of all your senses, through the addition of audio and an edit geared towards storytelling.  

Little Spencer's family could not be a more perfect showcase of this.  Their unbridled affection for each other and the new family addition (and for their sweet dogs), expressed openly through talking about their feelings and hopes, makes this little film completely about them, and completely theirs.  Watch it with the volume turned up - I think that it will surprise you, even if you are familiar with the genre of documentary-style family photography.  Let me know what you think, and if you'd like a little film for your own family, please get in touch and let's brainstorm!

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!

Hello Baby Jarvis | Singapore Newborn Photographer

Jarvis' mother mentioned right at the beginning of the shoot that she works with a lot of photographers and had been looking for someone suitable to photograph her newborn to no avail.  Much as it may be uncool to admit - well, that made me a wee bit nervous!  I think we hit it off immediately though as she was very clear about wanting something completely natural, unposed, and as far away from a 'baby in a basket' as possible.  I could not have said it better myself.  

This ended up easily being one of my favourite shoots of all time.  Just a new little person hanging out in his home, and two new parents losing themselves in wonder over his presence.  What a privilege to be allowed to share this with them.
