For more recent client and personal photography work, please do take the time to visit her blog as she showcases her favourite images from her professional newborn photography, baby photography and maternity portrait sessions.
Newborn photography is one of Nazia's favourite age to photograph. Those first newborn days are so precious and fleeting with your baby growing so quickly, it is imperative to capture this fresh newborn stage as soon as you possibly can. As a professional newborn photographer, it is Nazia's recommendation that your newborn baby be photographed while they are still under 10 days of age. The earlier, the better as they remain very sleepy and curled up during the very first few days of being out of the womb. To book your newborn photography session, your due date will be marked into the calendar and then an actual date is confirmed upon arrival of your newborn. As a professional newborn photographer in Melbourne, Nazia aspires to create stunning art to grace your walls and to be enjoyed by your family for generations.
As a mother herself, Nazia knows and understands the importance of capturing these milestones as your little bundle of joy grows from a newborn into a baby. The first year is filled with so many milestones to celebrate so after your newborn photography session, photographing your baby between 6-8 months when they are sitting upright but not yet crawling or walking and full of smiles can be a wonderful addition to baby's photographic journey. Another important milestone Nazia absolutely delights in capturing is baby's first birthday session. Baby's photos can be taken at any age so be sure to speak to Nazia about what would work work best for your baby.
Nazia believes there is nothing more radiantly beautiful than a mum-to-be with her gorgeous bump about to step into the amazing world of motherhood. You can select between a relaxed in studio or on-location pregnancy session. Nazia finds the best time to capture the pregnant form in all its beautiful glory is between 28-32 weeks. Combining your maternity photography and newborn photography is a wonderful idea, get in touch with Nazia with your due date and she will be happy to schedule in a maternity photography session and tentatively book in your due date for your newborn photography session.
Capturing her client's journey as a family as they grow from a couple to a family of three, four, five is another reason why Nazia is so passionate about photography and her clients. Her many years of experience as a professional children's photographer and a highly sought after professional family photographer has taught her exactly what to expect when taking pictures of children. As a mother of three active children herself, Nazia understands children and that they can be challenging especially during a family session. Her incredible patience and Nazia's ability to work with children allows her to take the time to understand the child and be-friend them before getting the perfect shot. As with all her work, portraits of children do not have to be traditional shots with posed, cheesy smiles. Nazia strives for realism in her photography and catching genuine moments of happiness, tender emotions and the family's personality is what makes her photography timeless.
