Newborn Portraits - A Wide Eyed Little Soul

I recently had the honour of taking photo of beautiful newborn, Austin Roy.

Austin's parents, Mel and Andrew, are very special to me. I've known Mel since she was a little girl and also photographed her wedding to Andrew back in 2007. So when I found out Mel was pregnant, I couldn't wait to have her back in the studio for a newborn sitting and to meet her little man; and what a beautiful little boy he is!

Austin was wide eyed and alert for much of the shoot and was happy to just relax and take it all in. We decided to keep the shoot as short and simple as possible as he wasn't too keen on drifting off to sleep to let us move him around.

I particularly love the very last photo in the slideshow. It was taken when the official part of the shoot was over and he was picked up and cuddled by dad. He was just starting to drift off to sleep and looked so serene that I simply had to capture the scene. Austin is simply perfect. Congratulations Mel and Andrew.
