Newborn Natural Light Baby Photography with Kelly Jo

Little Nemia makes her debut

There’s nothing more magical than the transformation from bump to bubba.  Photographing the gorgeous Rina and her bump was a relaxed and perfectly lovely experience.  From then on I sat in my studio with camera poised, tapping my fingers, huffing, fidgeting and checking my watch waiting for the arrival of Rina’s little girl.  Then….YES!  Nemia burst forth in dramatic and speedy fashion, she couldn’t even wait for her daddy to get the things from the car in the hospital car park before she flew into the world!  At eight days old Nemia made one of her first outings to my studio to be adored, cooed over and pixelised with love.  She is a real corker, a delicious dumpling.  I feel so lucky to be the able to capture her scrumptiousness at this precious, sacred time.

HDR Photography Project – a sneak preview

The Empire Cinema, Bridgetown, Barbados.

I’ve been working on a project for the past year and breaking from my norm.  It’s still in progress and I’m building up a body of work that’s going to be released to the world perhaps next year.  But I wanted to give you a sample of what to expect.  The images are HDR photography (High Dynamic Range) and I layer 5 identical images together taken at different exposures.  The result is very dramatic.  To add to this I’m obsessed with derelict buildings and this type of photography works rather well in such places. Textures, shadows, light and colours I find are rich and unique in these haunting, eerie, bewitching places. I’ve been lucky enough to explore and photograph such locations both at home and overseas.  Let’s start off with this one…the Empire Cinema in Bridgetown, Barbados. It started life as a theatre back in 1907 and was closed in the 1970s.  It’s in a terrible state of repair but still so beautiful and hopefully it will be restored one day. Please let me know what you think!
