a day old | shanghai newborn photographer

I love ‚Fresh 48‘ sessions – they are always the ones that truly steal my heart. As the name suggests, I will come to the hospital within the first 48 hours of your baby’s life, and capture everything you will want to remember: how tiny your baby looks in that hospital bassinet, the flaky fingers on tiny hands, the wrinkly knees, that little swirl of hair on the top of their head, the hospital bracelet around this tiny ankle… You will want to remember how you felt holding your brand new baby – so in awe and so full of love – and how you felt watching your partner hold them and gaze at this perfect little miracle. These first images will hopefully bring these feelings back and make you melt all over again every time you look at them!

sneak peek: fresh 48 | shanghai newborn photographer

For a ‚Fresh 48‘ session, I come to the hospital to photograph your little one within the first 48 hours of his or her life. A wonderful way to memorise this beautiful and emotional time, a brand new life.

This little boy was exactly 24 hours old when I met him. In fact, he was just given his very first bath when I arrived at the hospital, which he wasn’t very impressed with at the time. But as you can see, he was very content afterwards – and he sported a very handsome head of freshly washed and perfectly soft hair for his first photo shoot!

Welcome to the world, little man!

music lovers | newborn photographer shanghai

This gorgeous little baby girl was very calm throughout almost the whole session, and simply enjoyed being held and lovingly adored by her proud parents. When towards the end of the session, she woke up a bit more and started to cry, all it took were some tunes from Mom’s cello or Dad on the piano, and immediately she calmed down again. The love for music obviously runs in the family!

First birthdays are so much fun! Especially if you get to eat – and destroy! – a whole cake, all by yourself!
And if this is followed by a bubble bath and then story time with mom and dad, how much more perfect can a day be?!

(One of the images also has me in it! Can you find me? ;))

drawn to drawers | baby photography singapore

Drawers generally hold a special fascination for toddlers: something you can open yourself, that has lots of interesting stuff inside, and you can take out everything and throw it on the floor… Putting stuff back into the drawer usually does not hold quite the same fascination though. This handsome little boy is no exception. I particularly love that the first thing he grabs is not a toy, but these ‚Vacuum seal storage bags‘: like for all toddlers, ‚grown-up items‘ also generally hold a special fascination…

everything changes | newborn photography singapore

‚you always hear people say that having kids changes everything,
but you can’t fully realise it until you have children yourself.‘

~ jeff bridges

well, for me this was certainly true!
you hear so much from other people, you read a lot, you think you are prepared…
and then this little bundle arrives, and you realise that nothing could prepare you for this profound change in your life and in yourself. you already knew that you would love this baby, but you didn’t know just how much love you’d be capable of feeling until you first laid eyes on this tiny human being!

born at home | newborn photography singapore

this little guy gave me maybe a 10-minute-window to capture some posed images of him while he was sleeping – he was very much awake and very hungry for the rest of the session!

his mom did something that i find incredibly brave: she had him at home!
yep, that’s right: at home, no medication, doctor only came for a brief check twice, and baby boy was born right into dad’s waiting hands! mom trusted herself and her body and knew that she could do this – and she was right!
congratulations again!!!
