Toby…Brisbane Newborn Photographer

A journey of a thousand tears cried gently over time…

I longed to hold you in my arms, forever to be mine.

But that was not to be for now our paths will cross again…

My heart will hold a space for you, sit safely there till then.

And till that day you’ll heal our hearts, a gift you sent our way

A rainbow in our Toby…the sun to bright our day.


My heart has been absolutely busting for this session, many people collectively holding their breath for this little man to safely arrive earthside. Sent from heaven by his big sister to work towards healing his Mumma and Papa’s hearts. I first met this sweet family almost three years ago when I cared for their gorgeous big girl Ella who is just about to celebrate her big number three birthday and was so excited to bring her new baby brother to the studio today. Ella was born long before her time, eleven weeks early, and after twelve weeks in the NICU, she was finally strong enough to not only come home, but come to the studio for the most adorable ‘newborn’ session. Then last year I was so excited to hear that Ella was going become a big sister…heartbreakingly though, her darling baby sister Summer, grew her angel wings, staying with her family only for a summer, and is now watching down on her family from heaven. Sweet Summer sent her family a gift though, and today this little rainbow came to the studio so we could capture some very special memories.
