Little Pieces Photography ~ Newborn Photography by Kelly Brown

When clients come into my home studio the majority of the time they have no idea what is involved in a newborn photography session.  And I just love seeing their expressions while I’m posing and taking photos of their baby.  So I wanted to share with you a short video of some behind the scenes footage from a recent session.  You will see the attention to detail and the care that I take throughout every session.

2014 has definitely been the biggest year for Little Pieces Photography!  I have put a small video together of all the highlights and babies I have had the privilege to take photos of using my favourite slideshow company Animoto along with beautiful music from Triple Scoop Music.

It certainly was incredible year!!!  139 Newborn Babies Photographed, 23 Photographers privately mentored, 19 newborn posing classes in 12 countries to 193 photographers and 3 photography conferences!  Oh and a few new trophies along the way as well 😀  Winning the AIPP Australian Family Photographer of the Year 2014 is the biggest honour!    I have so much gratitude for the opportunities and the support I have received over the past few years – it’s unbelievable!!!  Thank you my beautiful clients that trust me with their baby photography and to all the wonderful photographers that I have met and most importantly my incredible family for putting up with me.

I wish you all a year filled with adventure, embraced opportunities and endless love and laughter.

Kelly Brown 🙂

 

 

Newborn & Baby Photography by Photographer Kelly Brown

Nothing can express the pure joy and love you feel when you meet your very own baby for the first time.  You want to share it with the world!   And what better way then to create a beautiful birth announcement!

I ‘WAS’ creating them so my clients could email or print them to send to friends & family, and have loved this process but now I am creating something a little different and I’m really excited to share it with you – Video Birth Announcements for Photographers.

Because we are now living in an information generation and almost everyone is online – And with video becoming the number one way to market/advertise your business.  I have started using Animoto to create a short video birth announcement that can be shared online with the click of a button.

If you haven’t heard of Animoto they are a slideshow company that helps you to create simple yet stunning slideshows of your images and videos to music.  Their videos are seriously so easy to use and post online that I have decided to no longer give my clients the gift of the ‘Baby Biscuits’ with their package but to now GIVE them these beautiful video birth announcements as a ‘thank you’ for choosing me as their newborn photographer.

During my sessions I now have my clients fill in a form with their babies birth details, I will then select 5 baby photos to edit – and a couple of days later they will receive a link via Vimeo to their birth announcement which they can then share on social media worldwide.

 

.

What I absolutely love about this the most is how much joy it brings to my clients.  The messages and calls I have received so far are the reason I am so passionate about baby photography.

    What a wonderful idea, thanks for sharing!ReplyCancel

    Hello Kelly
    I love the idea of the birth announcements. I got an account with Animoto and have started the process of developing this idea for my new business. However, I am curious…..how did you get the font you use in the video on this blog? I have not been able to use a script, which is what I prefer. I want something timeless and classic.

    Thanks.
    Ciao
