From the tiny fingers and toes of a newborn baby held by a glowing new mother to innocent chubby faces with delicate eyelashes and flawless skin, photographing the earliest days of a child's life is a joyous task for one of Canon Australia's Canon Masters and award-winning fine art portrait photographer, Kelly Brown.
Though she began her photographic career shooting 'anything and everything' from weddings to family portraits, babies have become her main point of focus. As a mother, she understands why these precious, fleeting moments need to be documented for families. "When you have your own baby, you don't want to miss a moment and they grow up so fast," she says.
Kelly has been a photographer for 18 years and has travelled internationally to speak at events and teach newborn posing classes in nearly 20 countries, while raising children of her own. "Now my eldest is almost 19 and I have twins that have just turned 16," she continues. "They're only small for such a short period of time and being able to document their growth and every milestone was really important."
