Welcome to my website! My name is Lena. I am a Newborn Photographer located on the beautiful Northern Beaches of Sydney, I have had the pleasure of working with families from all over and around the Sydney. I am mum to the sweetest little boy Evan and married to one amazing man.
As a newborn photographer I am primarily focusing on newborn babies in they first two weeks of life. My aim is to capture life’s most precious moments and create timeless imagery.
I always loved photography and started taking pictures on film when I was a child. I graduated from the University of Cinema and Television following my teenage dream to be a Cinematographer. But then I drifted away from it and in 2003 I got a full-time job as a Photoshop Retoucher in the big and busy photography studio. A few years later I bought my first digital camera and soon began to receive requests for paid photo shoots. I spent several years between photoshop retouching and photography jobs, challenging myself in different photography genres, improving my technical skills, polishing up my vision, developing my photoshop editing magic.
During last 12 years my photography journey walked me trough the different photography genres and styles and finally I felt in love with Newborn photography. Being a Newborn Photographer requires a specific mind set. I found Newborn photography suits me perfectly as I am a calm, quiet and very patient person. Now I specialise in Newborn, Baby and Family photography only.
I prefer to use natural colours when photographing newborns, so nothing distracts attention from the baby. I have big collection of newborn photography props, nice wraps, soft blankets, cute hats, lovely headbands etc. My ant taught me how to sew and knit when I was a child so now I make baby hats and other newborn photography accessories. Making cute props is one more way for me to express my creativity and as a newborn photographer I know which prop or hat or fabric texture looks better on images. I love listening (watching) to romantic movies as I crochet or knit. I have fast turn around times for editing images of your little ones. Those first images of your sleepy, curling up baby are precious and I pride myself in offering high-quality photographs that my clients and their families will cherish forever.
In my spare time I enjoy shooting landscape photography. Recently me and my husband finished a one year project, we were taking photos of every sunrise in our beautiful Sydney. Feel free to visit our Sunrise365 website to have a look.
