The Photographer

Lena Postnova

Welcome to my website!

My name is Lena. I’m a Newborn Photographer located on the beautiful Northern Beaches and I’ve had the pleasure of working with families from all around the Sydney.


I'm married and a mum to the sweetest little boy.

As a newborn photographer I primarily work with newborn babies and older babies under 1 year old.

my photography journey

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. However, I drifted away from it and got a full-time job as a Photoshop Retoucher in the 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 the last 15 years, my photography journey walked me through the different photography genres. Finally, I fell in love with Newborn photography. Being a Newborn Photographer requires a specific mindset.

In my spare time, I enjoy shooting landscape photography. I and my husband successfully accomplished a
photography-365 project. We were taking photos of every sunrise in our beautiful Sydney.

When photographing newborns I prefer to use
natural colours, so nothing distracts attention from the baby. I have
collection of newborn photography props, nice wraps, soft blankets, cute
hats, lovely headbands.

I found Newborn photography suits me perfectly. I’m a calm, quiet and
very patient person.

My aunt taught me how to sew and knit when I was
a child, I make some newborn photography accessories
myself. I love listening (watching) to movies as I 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. I
pride myself in offering high-quality photographs, that my clients and
their families will cherish forever.
