North East Victoria Newborn Photographer

Check out the beautiful Newborn Session in our North East Victoria studio of gorgeous baby Charlotte!

What a treasure she was! So so tiny and precious.

One of my friends just had a baby (which you will see on the blog soon) and I continue to be amazed at these beautiful little miracles we call our kids. I try to get around to her house once a week to help her with bub and I have to tell you the story about my first time there.

After having some dinner together and then giving bub a feed the idea was that I would take bub and give mum a break for an hour or so, because all the mums out there know this gig can be tough! I was holding her while mum was in the shower and she started to get super unsettled. I tried every trick in the book but she was having a tough time. So mum comes back out with a towel wrapped around her hair, takes her for about 30 seconds and in that time she not only stopped crying but she also fell asleep! Making it an easy transition for her to slide onto my chest. I was amazed!!

There is clearly nothing like a mothers touch. Theres nothing like being home in your parents arms; even when you’re older. There’s no place like home.

Anyway, I just continued to be amazed by the miracle child in my arms, her beauty, her little lips, her hair and all her faces. All the features chosen perfectly for her. And I was also amazed by the strength of her mother. As a single mum and this being her first bub she was doing an amazing job.

So I take my hat off to all the mums, all the dads and all the bubs out there. You guys rock! You are raising the next generation. No matter how many times they cry, poop, vomit, chuck a tantrum, don’t do what you ask or be plain rude, you are still raising up the future leaders of this world! What a task, what a responsibility and what a honour.

Enjoy some special moments from Charlotte’s session. Her parents chose 3 Miracle Frames to hang proudly in their home to celebrate their little miracle!

Much love, Kelsey

Albury Baby Milestone Photographer

Hello Lily!! Thanks so much for coming in for your Milestone Simply Bloom Session here in our Albury Photography Studio! We loved having you come in!

Milestone sessions are so much fun! They are all about the cheeky personality of your baby! And a Simply Bloom session incorporates not just beautiful photos but a video as well! Thats right, you get to capture all those quirky things your bub does in a video allowing you to really remember those funny things in years to come.

This is obviously a very different session to a newborn session because at this age, between 7 to 12 months, bub is crawling, rolling, laughing, giggling and sometimes even walking! Mums and dads often tell us stories about their little one in the cupboard pulling out the containers or starting to climb up on the couch and hopefully not falling off again!! Lets just say, getting up to mischief if you ask me!

And they may not quite be talking yet but boy oh boy do they have a personality! Little Lily made this awesome face every time she got excited! It was so funny to watch! Both her parents weren’t really sure where it came from but that was simply Lily being who Lily is.  And thats what I love to capture, whether it be with photos or video, or both! Such fun.

You can check out a little sneak peak of Lily’s session on the Umbilical Love Facebook page in the video section. —> Click here! Parents have asked to keep the video for themselves to enjoy as it is such a special and personal thing, but they are happy to share these beautiful photos with you.

Isn’t she just so sweet? Those big blue eyes… That fluffy and soft hair… the chubby cheeks! Heart melting cuteness below!

Enjoy some of my favourites from this session

Much love, Kelsey

Albury Family Photos

‘Na na na na na you cant catch me!!’

This Family Photos session was located on a beautiful hill in Albury Wodonga and was sooo much fun!

Not only did we play chasey but we had a running race (or 5!) and tried to find out who could pull the funniest face! Who do you think won? 😛 All the fun we had in this winter family session.

Now as you can see, it was cold, it was the middle of winter!!! And unfortunately we didn’t get a lot of sun but with a beautiful location and a beautiful family you really can’t go wrong! Especially when they are this fun and cheeky!

This session was one of the fun sessions I got to do with Abbey who was a work experience student that I had in the studio. She now knows what its like to run up and down a hill chasing the best angle. But it’s more then being able to take a nice photo, it’s also about interacting with the family to make sure they are having a fun time. The more natural fun they have the better the photos are that you will get. And I think in these photos you can see a whole lot of character and a whole lot of love.

Those of us who are lucky (or unlucky) enough to have siblings would remember the days of chasey, running around parks, climbing tress and really annoying each other most of the time! I know my brother and I have had our days…. But I also know that at the end of the day we would still do anything for each other, and we love each other, somewhere deep deep deeeep down in our hearts haha.

I say, treasure the time that you have together now. Michelle, the mum in these photos, kept saying to me that she’s been meaning to get photos done for so long so they can hang up something in their home and fill it with beautiful moments together. Take time to be together, treasure it and capture it to enjoy for years and years, and generations to come.

Enjoy some of my favourite from this session

Much love, Kelsey xx

Baby Photographer Albury Guarantees

Welcoming the beautiful little Emilia to the Umbilical Love Photography blog!

This little one was a treasure to have in our natural light studio here in Albury!

Are you ready for a journey?

Emilia was over 2 months old when we did this session. Now most photographers would freak out at the thought because this is a completely different session to a newborn session. Newborns, typically between 7 and 14 days old when they do their session, still love to curl up in those womb like positions and they also pretty much just eat and sleep… oh and poop! Perfect for photography sessions! … Except for the poop….. So when a 2 month old comes along, I have to think about it differently. There is absolutely nothing wrong with doing a newborn session older then a month or so. I mean, they are still a newly born baby! 2 months old is young haha! But as I said we just have to think about the session differently

Little Emilia stole my heart, and clearly her parents, as soon as she came into the studio. Those eyes! Just check them out for yourself! And don’t even get me started on the eyelashes, her lips and her chubby legs! IN LOVE!! She was super happy and smiley and was enjoying time with her beautiful parents and curiously discovering the new place she was in and the stranger that was pointing a black thing at her face (that me!). As the session went on she started to get tired (as babies do) and after a feed she really wasn’t interested in having a sleep, although we all knew it was what she needed (some babies just won’t listen 😛 )

Instead of us fighting her and getting frustrated that she wouldn’t go to sleep, or stay asleep, we simply let her be. And thats where the most beautiful photos came out. The moments when she was being cuddled and held by her parents, with her eyes half shut, but comfortable in their arms. She was in a place of comfort in that moment…

So here’s my guarantee, that even if your baby is older then the typical newborn session age, we will still get beautiful photos. 

“Who are you to judge that Kelsey?” – Well I know, because its sometimes in those moments when comfort happens that we get the best shots. Bubs just want to feel safe and feel loved. They are smarter then we think 😉

Whether your new miracle is 7 days old or 3 months old, its never to late to capture beautiful moments of them just how they are. Because we all know how quick they grow before our eyes

If you’re thinking about booking a session but are wondering if its to late, its not! Head to our booking page and find a time that works for you –>

On a side note, these Miracle Frames are selling like hot cakes!! Jump on board to have these in your home <3 <3

Enjoy some of my favourites from this session <3

Much love, Kelsey xx

Riverina New South Wales Newborn Photography

I loved having the Arnold Family in the studio for baby Jack’s Newborn Session! These guys came all the way from Berrigan in Riverina New South Wales for their Newborn Photography session in our natural light studio here in Albury.

I love when people are willing to really invest in their photography, which means travelling the distance with a newborn bub, and two young boys under 5! Good job Arnold family, you guys rock!!

I guess its like buying any sort of amazing product you are willing to travel to get the best of the best. We are pretty lucky in this area that Albury is a pretty big country city (as they call it) and we can get pretty much everything we need here. But there are occasions where you may have to travel to Sydney or Melbourne to get something really amazing. Maybe a new car for example.

Or maybe its for a different kind of investment for your University education or for your Job. Some things you just cant do here. Some things you even have to travel over seas for.

Im very blessed by the little studio I have here in the heart of Albury.

There has been a lot of blood, sweat and tears go into this studio and most of it not even by me and for that I am very grateful. But the investment has paid off and nothing amazing comes easy.

I hope that these guys are enjoying walking by the 3 beautiful frames that they have chosen to put in their home. I hope they really value the investment they made to have a beautiful tangible product that will truly last forever.

I wonder if these boys will have red hair forever or if it’ll change over time… I wonder if when these boys have kids if they will have red hair to… But lucky they have something amazing documented to remember their beautiful for all it is right now.

Enjoy a few favs from this gorgeous session

Much love,

Kelsey xx
