Hi, I'm Rebecca, specialising in Newborn and Baby Photography.
My newborn photography business started out as a hobby, I was taking pictures of anything I could lay my eyes on. From family members to abstract things to wedding parties and beautiful sceneries in Malta. A while back, a friend asked me to take pictures of her daughter's first birthday and that was it - I just fell in love and I knew how I wanted to use my talent! I realized that this is my passion and my journey into newborn and baby photography began.
I started training on baby safety procedures and tactics, ensuring the little ones are safe, comfortable and content whilst being the centre of attention, wrapped up in cute little blankets or propped into baskets, the sky was the limit. A few years later, in 2018, I was blessed with a beautiful baby boy. Needless to say, he became my very own model. Many ideas emerged from hours of costume try outs matched with the correct themes and backdrops.
My next venture was posing for a maternity photoshoot. It was a fun filled experience with results that I will cherish forever. I can't wait until my son is old enough to be shown the photos! It was then that I decided to include maternity photoshoots to my business in Malta. The subjects go hand in hand and all finished photos can be displayed in a beautiful photo album that withstands the test of time.
I feel that I have the most exciting job in world, the opportunity to work with beautiful, God given newborns, under 3 weeks of age as well as older babies posing for a cute sitter session or a cream filled cake smash session almost every day! I love being able to freeze in time those precious moments in order to create beautiful artwork for the family to treasure forever.
The minute newborn photography launched in Malta, I was very keen to start researching the ins and outs of the trade and I must say I fell in love with it. I practised different ways in which a newborn baby can be safely wrapped as well as other tips, tricks and techniques to keep a baby happy and sleeping throughout the photoshoot.
In my professional opinion, the newborn baby must feel safe and comfortable enough to allow me to handle him or her throughout the session and I feel that my expertise in handling delicate newborns is what truly allows me to provide such beautiful photos. Furthermore, I am happy with the trust that mummies have shown and continue to show in me throughout my career handling their bundle of joy as a professional newborn baby photographer.
My initial focus was photographing newborn babies. I then expanded my focus to include the whole experience. From pregnancy, maternity photoshoots were born. From the birth of a baby, newborn photography took place. From a baby's milestone, a sitter session was included and finally, their first birthday! A cake for the little one to smash to their heart's content! A cake smash photography session, which is very popular and widely loved by the parents!
I must say, there is nothing more satisfying than handing my clients the exquisitely finished photos of their stars!
