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’ve been taking photographs ever since I can remember, but once I entered the world of wedding photography I felt the need to really understand my gear. Once you really learn your tools, you can worry less about the technical side and focus on putting your vision into that single frame. I feel the faster I can work, and the more intuitively I know my equipment, the more creative I can be. Wedding photography can make you a pro really fast. I think that artistic pressure is what drove me towards it.

As a lifelong fine artist, I didn’t fall in love with photography until post-college. I was a graphic design major who landed a non-creative position in the industry. Upon searching for a creative outlet, and being the hopeless romantic that I am, I discovered wedding photography and was immediately hooked. I poured everything I had into learning the medium so that I could eventually start my own business, which happened a couple of years later in 2012 — also the year I was married.

I am a wedding and portrait photographer based in Portland, but catering to clients across the Pacific Northwest and beyond. As a child, I never imagined that I would pursue photography. I didn’t even own a DSLR until I was 21! However, I remember the day I decided I wanted to learn the ins and outs of photography. I used my college textbook money to buy my first Canon Rebel from Craigslist. I was jumping up and down with joy and scratching my head at the same time because I knew photography would not be simply a hobby.
