Introduction

Hello, I’m Natalie Carstens - your photographer!

I’m here to help you preserve your precious memories. My specialty and big love is photographing families as they welcome a new baby into their lives.

Each photo I make tells a piece of your family story in a beautiful way. Share digital images with your loved ones and relive your memories with a gorgeous handcrafted heirloom album that will be enjoyed and loved for generations.

I believe there is no bond stronger than mother and child. And I know all too well the importance of existing in photographs for our children. Photography is a beautiful gift.

I’ve been photographing families for over a decade. I feel privileged to document your stories, and to be part of them.

I can’t wait to hear from you!

Love Natalie xx

Newborn photoshoots are very relaxed and always take place at your home where you have everything you need easily to hand. They are a wonderful way to preserve your memories of family life at home with a new baby. You only need to enjoy spending time together as a family, I’ll do the rest.

I’d recommend planning your photoshoot to take place within your baby’s first 2-3 weeks. I reserve time in my calendar based on your estimated due date and we’ll plan a date for your photoshoot after your baby is born.

Family photoshoots tell the story of your here and now. When your children think you’re just doing your thing as a family and having fun, and your friend is making photos… that’s when the magic happens! With a pinch of sentimental and a dash of notalgia, i’ll help you preserve your precious family memories. We’ll create a time capsule of your family history.

These aren’t your typical posed family portraits made in a studio. No, this is you being you! Together as a family. Where the seemingly mundane becomes extraordinary. Love and joy so apparent. At home or outdoors. I promise you that years from now, this is the way your children will love to remember the way you were.

Your Family Photoshoot includes:
- A pre-session consultation
- Relaxed storytelling photography for up to 90 minutes
- A private online proofing gallery, accessible for 10 days
- Set of 5 digital image files, delivered electronically (with the option to purchase more)

Photographs of a birth are incredibly special. To welcome a baby into the world is magical, it’s all-consuming, and powerful.

I always meet with you before you book so that we can get to know each other and so that you feel comfortable inviting me to join you for such a personal and intimate experience.

Silently, I join you during your labour to document unique and special moments of connection, strength and love during your birthing experience.

I focus on capturing the mood in the room, the supportive and caring relationship between you and your partner, your strength as a birthing mother, all the emotions and wonderful first moments after your baby is born, as well as all the small details that help to tell your unique birth story. Please be assured that I use discretion when taking and processing your images to ensure that the images you receive are heartfelt and tasteful.

Your visually emotive birth story film features beautiful black-and-white storytelling images, carefully interweaved with film footage of your baby’s magical and fleeting first moments. You will love to reflect and remember your extraordinary journey in this special way.

Albums are another wonderful way to enjoy your images. Custom designed to tell your unique birth story; your gorgeous handcrafted Fine Art album will be enjoyed and loved for generations.

Birth Story Collections start from 1500 euros.

Would you like to meet (online or in-person) for a no obligation chat to discuss your wishes and see what is possible? Especially for birth photography, I always like to meet in-person before booking.
