Most people know me as a newborn photographer, but since moving into my new Brisbane photography studio, I am branching into family photography more and more.

When you ask people what they would rescue from their burning house, the most common answer is “family photographs”. When people panic, they would rather grab photos than valuable jewellery or technology. This is a powerful force which tells us more about the role of family photography in our lives. We have a constant desire to distil our most precious moments into images.

Photography is a huge part of our history. For the past 200 years it has captured the history of the world and of families. It has given us a glimpse of the past, whilst preserving our family and cultural histories. People or events that photographed now will perhaps never be the same again, so taking advantage of any opportunities to take photos allows for the remembrance of things as they once were.

These photographs outlive us, they last for generations.  They matter because they freeze moments of our lives which pass unremarkably and which seem to have little importance to us at the time. The significance, however, may be for others who search for the person we once were or the places we once knew. Like jigsaw pieces that complete the larger picture of our lives, these photographs are what tell our stories long after we are gone.

Photographs can grab our attention and speak directly to our emotions. Our images can express joy and sorrow, wonder and sympathy. Every human emotion can find a place in photography. As a portrait photographer, this art form has given me a voice to express feelings when I cannot find words. It has allowed me to develop a visual language for some of the most difficult life situations and emotions.

Photography allows us to preserve these memories for the days we may not remember, or when we can no longer remember.

 

11 Years in the Making

Kelly Brown, Brisbane family photographer, photographs a beautiful family for the first time in 11 years.

The couple in the video below were last photographed together 11 years ago, on their wedding day. Their children will cherish these images for many years to come. Photographs manifest emotions that words cannot. These are so important to your loved ones, and especially when those moments are no longer fresh in our minds.

And, especially for portraits, these visual documents of a moment in time become ever more valuable as time goes by.

When was the last time you were photographed with your family? I am truly enjoying capturing the love of a family. I would love to hear from you if you are interested in having your family captured, just as the family below did. You can find out more about a portrait photography session on my website.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Kelly

 

Little Pieces Photography offers Maternity Photography.

It was amazing to have this beautiful mother to be in the studio.  Being able to capture her at this special time in her pregnancy is something that she will remember for a lifetime.

I’m so excited to finally share this beautiful photograph of Kim and her 5 gorgeous babies. In January I travelled over to Perth with Canon Australia to document this incredibly special time in the Tucci’s lives. I had a ball photographing them but couldn’t have done it without a little help – thank you Clare

    Most amazing photo ever! Well done Kelly keep up the incredible work!ReplyCancel

Today I had my very first session in the NEW studio. And what a way to christen it with these gorgeous 7 week old twin boys.


I still can’t get over the fact that its all mine and how incredible the light is!!! I’ll be sharing some more behind the scenes soon once everything is completed in the building.  Spine Street Studios in Sumner, Brisbane is the new location for Little Pieces Photography.  With 2 natural light studios and an amazing corner cyclorama studio it is just the best space to work out of.

Spine Street Studios, Sumner, will be having an open day on 31st March 2017 and you can find out more information here.

The past 12 days have been nothing short of incredible!!! I’ve had so much fun here in London at my Newborn Photography Workshops! 7 full days of teaching, 9 babies photographed and 1 night spent with my English family in Widnes

I’m not sure I would have got through it without the help from my good friend and travel companion Garrett and my amazing host Russ Jackson Photography – I’m beyond grateful to you both.

The long flight back to Australia starts in a couple of hours and I’m pretty sure I’ll sleep the entire way.

Thank you to every newborn photographer that attended my classes, getting to know you has been an absolute privilege and if you’re waiting on a response to an email I promise to get back to you very soon. Kelly x

I’m back in Seattle  and ready to teach Baby Safety & Posing for Newborn Photographers tomorrow at CreativeLive!

And I’m excited to share that Stephanie Robin Photography – Newborn and Family Portraitist will be joining me as a special guest during tomorrows class I can’t wait!
Lets Make Safety A Priority And Put Clients At Ease!

Parents hire newborn photographers to document every detail of their babies at that brief instant at the start of their lives when they are tiny, bright and new to the world. Newborn photographers can feel a lot of pressure to fulfill parents’ wishes. In the rush to capture the perfect shot, it’s easy to forget that the subject of these photos are incredibly fragile little beings. Safety should always come first.

Join ee for tips on handling newborns safely, reading their moods and needs, and prepping your studio for a newborn shoot. You’ll learn:

  • Safe posing techniques
  • How to operate a safe environment in your studio and on external shoots
  • How to understand newborn behavior

You’ll discover how to sanitize your studio, choose cleaning products and plants with the newborn’s health in mind, and make sure that your furniture and equipment meets newborn safety standards. I will also focus on safely posing and handling a newborn during the shoot. I will teach you how to execute poses like the Potato Sack, the Froggy pose, and other advanced techniques used to create composite images. You will learn about newborn anatomy and the environment they come from to help you better understand what they are capable of doing in a shoot setting: how to avoid imbalance, overheating, and injury.

Finally feel capable of communicating about newborn safety. If parents feel that they can trust you around their child, they will be put at ease and remember the experience of the shoot more fondly.

You can find all the details here…

More fun filming in the studio today. I was lucky enough to photograph little Max a couple of years ago as a newborn so couldn’t wait to meet his baby sister today and see the beautiful boy he has grown into!
While I was editing this photo earlier I thought – Max is just two & half, he will never remember cuddling his brand new baby sister Amelia! And then I started to wonder where will photos like this be in around 60 years when these beautiful babies have families of their own and I’m pushing 100! If I’m lucky!!!
