Film about newborn photographer

By - Richard - 3rd September 2023

It was a privilege to make this short film about newborn photographer Alie Calvert from Blue Sky Photography .

We documented the process that Alie goes through when photographing newborn babies. It requires a lot of patience!

Typically these newborn photo shoots are with babies who are between two and four weeks old. As a Mother herself, Alie is like a baby whisperer, cuddling and nurturing the babies and instinctively knowing the best time to capture photos.

It was fascinating to document this process. A real passion of ours is documenting our own social history. Baby photos are so important and capturing the right photo is something that can last the test of time.
