Baby Joseph’s newborn portrait photography session on-location in Albany WA
Even though it was technically winter, we were blessed with a warm sunny day for baby Joseph’s portrait session in Torbay, near Albany in Western Australia. Joseph, or ‘Joey’, as his mum likes to call him, was just 6 weeks old when he was prepped for his first newborn portrait photography session. Often, very young newborns are photographed indoors or in the studio, where it is warm and comfortable, but with Joey being a little older than the 10 day old newborns I usually photograph, he was wide awake for the entire session and up for an outdoor romp in the sunshine! I hope you enjoy this sneak peek of baby Joey and his loving mum.
It’s not everyday a client’s feedback gives me goosebumps but here’s what Joseph’s mum had to say about her photos 🙂
“Oh my god I can hardly believe how beautiful these photos are Kirsten Wowzers! I’m trying so hard not to cry. They are just so incredibly beautiful. It just shows your absolute talent as I didn’t feel on the inside like the amazing woman in the picture during the shots . Really makes me look like this glowing, loving and feminine +strong mumma – omg wow. this is the kindest gift that I’ve ever had Kirsten . You’re amazing !! Will take a better look later tonight. Love Tina + Joey❤️❤️❤️“

The Gould family chose the local golfcourse for their Walpole Family Portrait session which provided a variety of wonderful settings for their photos.
Their chosen package included an hour of photography and a minimum of 100, lightly edited, high resolution images on disc. But there were so many wonderful photos that their disc contained over 170 images!
Their package included the option for some additional editing in Photoshop, which I have put to use in the following collection of images.
Through advanced editing, I work to perfect the composition of each photo and create strong focal points by applying colour and tonal treatments to selective areas of the image. As you can see in the image below, I like to keep photos looking natural without obvious skin-smoothing treatments or excessive blurring. Here’s an example of what my advanced editing can do for your photos :
