Newborn photography Geelong

Before I became a parent, I used to hear parents always comment on how quick their  newborn child had grown and how in a wink of an eye their baby was at school. My first thought was always, time doesn’t go any faster or any slower for anyone…so I don’t get it. Fast forward a few years and now I’m a parent as well and boy oh boy was I very wrong,  they do grow really quickly!! It feels like one minute you’re in the delivery room waiting for this new little baby to emerge and then you blink and they’re crawling and trying to walk and talk. So I made it a point when my daughter was born to photograph her every three months. Apart from the thousands of photos we’ve taken with our small camera and phone, every three months we bring her into the studio and do a portrait session with her. She made me work for it the very first time we did this, but now she enjoys it, it’s more like a game than a photo session. Ok, I totally understand, not everyone is going to want to have their child photographed every three months (mainly because any “spare” time that parents have involves trying to catch up on things!) But, considering how precious your little child is, taking four hours over the course of a year to have them photographed, isn’t a lot of time. I can guarantee it’ll be time well spent.  So drawing on inspiration from my daughter, I was able to create something that I think is pretty unique in Geelong. The ability to record a child’s life over a period of time. Being that every moment you have with your child is precious, what if you could pause a moment? Not literally of course (I wish I could though!!) but pause in the sense of being able to hold on to a memory that your child creates forever. So I came up with my Moment in Time sessions. This is something that you really need to see to fully understand how beautiful and precious it really is. Portraits and albums that capture your child in a very special and unique way. You are more than welcome to visit the studio to view these beautiful products (appointments advisable, you can click Here to make a time), but hopefully this short video clip can help explain what I mean. For those of you that aren’t aware, my albums are hand made in Italy by some very clever people who use some very beautiful materials to put the albums together. That’s even more reason to come in and have a look. And, if all that wasn’t enough, all my wall portraits now come with a lifetime guarantee. That means that even if you damage the portrait by accident, you’re covered! How many places offer that sort of guarantee??  I hope you enjoy viewing this video clip as much as I enjoyed capturing the special moments in this child’s life.

Remember, if you want to stay in touch with all that’s happening at the studio, you can join my Facebook page or simply click Here and fill out the form so I can email you when any specials are happening.

Newborn photography Geelong

This is one of my most favourite things to photograph, a newborn child in their fathers arms. I don’t think that first time parents realise how quickly children grow and change. I often get asked when the best time to photograph a newborn baby after birth is and I always give the parents this guideline, if you want the real newborn baby look, then try and get it within the first five days and certainly no later than two weeks after the birth. With some new mums now staying in hospital for the first five days, the best advice I can give you is to contact the studio at least two weeks prior to your due date so we can make arrangements for me to visit the hospital. There is so much happening in the days after the birth, that many parents that I talk to afterwards say that they would’ve loved to have had a photograph of their child, but simply forgot.  Photography by Riccardo is happy to schedule a hospital visit for you, so those first few days in your new babys life aren’t missed.  Plus, as an added bonus, newborn hospital visits at either the Geelong hospital or St. John of God hospital are free. You can also register yourself or a friend at my new Baby Club page on Facebook. Baby club allows you to send a gift certificate to a friend who is expecting a baby as a gift from you to have their portraits taken. Best of all, it doesn’t cost you a thing or the first $50 of the Gift Certificate! Simply fill in their details and we’ll send them a $50 gift certificate totally free, no catches or hidden costs. The certificate states that it is a gift from you and nowhere does it say that it’s a free service.  You can register yourself if you’re expecting as well and, if you have any questions, you can contact me Here. I have had people ask if they can send gift certificates of greater value and the answer is yes, you just need to contact the studio so that this can be arranged.

Geelong Photographer – Child Portraits

For the last year or so I’ve been playing with new designs and styles with my newborn, baby and child portraits. I’ve been a bit hesitant to show the new style, simply because I wanted to perfect it before releasing them. And anyway, good things take time don’t they!  But now, I’m close, so close in fact that I am now in the final stages of photographing and designing my samples. Because some of the new styles are so specific, they can only be photographed at certain times. Add to that the new type of paper that I will be using for these portraits and I now have something very different and exclusive. Over the next few months you’ll be seeing the future of portraits come to life on this page. Something that Geelong has never seen and only at Photography by Riccardo.

Newborn and Baby Portrait Video

My latest creation, a short clip showcasing some of my newborn and child portrait photography. I’m really proud of the fact that I capture memories for families that last forever. Seeing a child grow from a newborn to a toddler and beyond has made me realise the importance of my profession. Most of the images you see were photographed in my Geelong based studio, but there are also some that were taken at various locations. I offer a premium service to clients wanting to have their newborn photographed in the first days after their child is born. Feel free to Contact me if you would like more information regarding this service.  I hope you enjoy watching this, maybe even grab a box of tissues before you press play!

Christmas 2014 package pre-release

There’s always something magical in Geelong at Christmas time and this year is certainly no different. I have already had quite a few enquiries regarding Christmas family portrait packages. As with all my specials, there is only a limited quantity available. I pride my work on being available as a “Quality rather than quantity” product. So, this Christmas, there will only be thirty spots available. Four have already been taken prior to the release so I have decided to release ten more spots as a pre-release.

The portraits can be a family portrait, couple portrait, newborn or baby portrait or even a glamour portrait. Have you had a look at my fairy portrait collection?   As an added bonus this year, one lucky person will win a 16 x 24″  wall portrait to add to their order valued at $600.

Have your memories captured forever by Geelong’s most awarded portrait and wedding photographer.

Pre-release sessions will be available until the 21st of October or until all taken. Please contact Photography by Riccardo  by email to reserve your spot. Gift vouchers will also be available.
