Shazmin | a lifestyle newborn session

I've said it before, and I'll say it favourite pictures of newborns are not of them posed in baskets and pretty hats, but simply of parents interacting with their brand new baby. I want to capture that newborn glow that all new parents have, as well as the little things you don't want to forget; the way they sleep, the way their hand clenches when they feed, their tiny toes. Amanda and Saify let me do just that at their beautiful KLCC apartment, and I hope that the moments I was allowed to capture are going to be moments that they treasure forever.




Caroline and Sayan | Newborn natural beauty

Caroline, my great friend and another photographer here in KL, just had her second baby. We made plans that I would come to the hospital as soon as Baby Wellings made her appearance to capture some pictures of their first hours as a family of four. There was only one day in the month that I couldn't make it, as I would be in Singapore for an (amazing) photography workshop. We agreed that the likelihood of her coming on the one day I wasn't in KL was pretty low. What day did gorgeous Sayan decide to make her appearance? The one day I was in Singapore. She certainly knows her own mind already.

It all turned out ok in the end though, because when I visited them the next week, once they were settled in at home, I snuck in my camera, and captured Caroline and Sayan together, just getting to know one another and enjoying one another's company. These are some of my all time favourite newborn shots that I've taken. Not posed, not prepared in special clothes or outfits, just a mum and a baby, and me sitting back and capturing the undeniable beauty of it all.
