Tiffany our baby whisperer has refreshingly disarming nature that makes you connect with her from the get go. She loves children, babies and has this incredible way of getting down on to their level and bringing even the shyest of children out of their shells. Tiffany has always been a true creative but the catalyst that caused her love for children’s photography to emerge came from becoming a mother (patience) and the inspiration, learnings and dedication from Greg Lumley, one of South Africa’s top wedding photographers. You can be one of the best photographers in the world but there is one defining trait that makes or breaks you when it comes to newborn & children’s photography … Patience.  And that word IS Tiffany.  Tiffany is definitely the baby whisperer!

A few words from Tiff …

Every day I appreciate just how lucky I am to be welcomed into new parents homes during such a special time.  Often I am the there to record the new babies first moments before visitors and extended family members have been given that privilege.  How blessed am I.  Every single baby I have worked with is unique and every single one has different needs.  I always say to moms that the morning will go how the baby needs it to go and I adapt and work around that.  My main focus is keeping baby warm, safe and happy and second to that comes amazing photos.  The truth is that if you focus on point number one then amazing photos will happen.  There are a lot of photographers out there who do not understand the importance of safety in newborn photography and I am passionate about spreading the word of safety.  Over precaution is best at all times and this article that i wrote will give you the key must do’s when it comes to photographing a newborn.  As a soon to be mom or new mom please take the time to read this and ensure that the photographer that you use practices all steps during your newborns shoot:  http://www.tiffanylumley.co.za/2012/10/22/safety-of-new-born-photography-by-tiffany-lumley-cape-town-newborn-photographer.html I wish you all the best with your pregnancy/birth and years of parenthood.  The best journey of our lives.
