Hi Kelly! Welcome and thanks for joining us on Design Aglow’s Baby Week.


Tell us a little bit about you.

I live in Brisbane Queensland Australia.  I have always loved photography but it was after the arrival of my first baby 11 years ago I simply couldn’t stop taking photos of her!  My husband was very encouraging and suggested that I study photography and not long after that Little Pieces Photography was created.   

 

 

How do you describe your style?

I would probably say my images have a very earthy vintage feel to them, and I like to make the baby the  main focus of the image, making them look as comfortable as possible.

 

What or who really inspires you?

I love visiting art galleries, and there are so many photographers from all genres that inspire me daily.

 

What are your top tips for photographing babies?

Have lots of patience and make sure the studio is nice and warm.

Always use a spotter and never place a baby in dangerous props that could potentially break or fall.

I purchased Design Aglow's engagement guest book design a long time ago and have since created many for my couples to display at their wedding. Of course, they are always packaged in beautiful boxes and bags!

We make all the decisions big and small, such as whether we run our business full or part-time, how and why we set our price points, the products we offer, our ideal clients, the list goes on.

As a photographer based in Charleston, SC, summer is my busiest time of the year. So instead of vacationing elsewhere, I like to escape in my own city for a few days at a time. Given that Charleston won the 2016  “World’s Best City” award by Travel & Leisure, after being a top city for the past four years, there’s plenty to see and do and see as a guest in my own city!
