Manawa-Toa….Brisbane Newborn Photographer

For those that came before us sent a gift from up above…

Whanau they surround us…cover us in love…

A baby boy filled with light to bring us hope & joy…

Our newest love safe in our arms, we love you little boy…

Connection brings us together on this special day…

And those that now will guide us…watch on from far away.

 

There are moments in life that the universe has plans bigger than we can understand…moments that bring people together that are more than just coincidence. Today’s beautiful family ended up in my studio in one of those moments & I am so grateful we were brought together. So many people in heaven…babies, mother’s, husbands and children led us to each other and today I had the immense honour of capturing beautiful memories for them. We were meant to meet.

Today I had the most darling little man in the studio…seriously lips for days…the most gorgeous honey coloured hair…and the squishiest cheeks you’ve ever seen. He brought his Mumma, Papa and Grandmother to the studio and we got to capture divine images for this family to treasure for ever and even help heal a few broken hearts in the process.

We did a few different set ups to honour this beautiful family piece.Newborn baby boy sleeping on vintage iron bed wearing cream knit romper and bonnet with curly felt on fur on groundMumma chose a stunning gallery of natural neutral creams, browns and greys…look at this little snuggle bug.Newborn baby boy sleeping in round wooden bowl wrapped in brown wrap with brown blanket on wooden floor with dried flowers and hessian circular layersLook at those little piggies…Newborn baby boy sleeping on brown blanket with brown wrap and knit bonnetThe best hair which still looked just as adorable with a little bonnet on…Newborn baby boy sleeping in oval basket with grey blanket wearing grey knit romper and dried flowers on wooden floorJust chillin…Newborn baby boy sleeping on brown blanket with Maori korowai wrapped over himThe stunning details in the Korowai are so special…Newborn baby boy sleeping on wooden crate wearing grey knit romper and bear bonnet on grey blanketI don’t know that it gets any sweeter than this little man…Newborn baby boy wearing cream knit romper on cream furHe was seriously so chill…just happy to lay back and hang out…Newborn baby boy wrapped in grey wrap with grey knit layer in cane basket with hessian layer on wooden floorLittle man you are the greatest gift…Newborn baby boy sleeping on mothers chest wrapped in Maori korowaiAnd our last image of the day…Mumma wasn’t sure about getting in photo’s today but I just knew in my heart we had to capture this image…she later told me that the Korowai belonged to her father who passed away a few years ago. I know he was wrapping his arms around these two today.

Universe…you are all I can think for making today happen…for us bringing together.x.
