MY NAME IS TANHA BASILE
I am a professional newborn photographer with a specially dedicated newborn photography studio, located in Hope Island on the Gold Coast. Newborn and older baby photography is my absolute passion. Photographing new babies in there first few weeks of life is such an honour to me.
I decided to take my photography hobby to a professional level in 2013, when I had my baby girl. I am qualified in all aspects of newborn/baby posing safety I will only attempt poses with your baby if I feel it is safe to do so.
I am a total germ phobe, if I am told a baby or parent is ill with a contagious illness or I myself am sick, we WILL be rescheduling the session. Hand sanitiser is my fav product ever!
I have taken part in many training courses and mentoring not only to continuously learn more about the art of posing and photographing babies, but to also keep up to date, with the latest technology from Adobe Photoshop, Apple, Nikon, and many prop vendors worldwide.
Personally, together my wonderful husband and I have two babies, a little IVF miracle girl born in 2013 and a little man miraculously conceived naturally and born two years later. I’m not one to really talk about myself, but I always get asked if I have kids of my own. Between my family and photographing babies, that takes up most of my time. I do love a killer cup of coffee though and I have a sickening obsession with shopping for all things homeware, fashion and makeup.
I have now reached a level of professionalism, that other upcoming and even professional photographers come to me for mentoring or help with their own business journey.
In 2015 I won 3rd overall worldwide in the newborn category at the WPPI second half online competition. I was absolutely honoured to be ranked highly against such amazing talented and lovely photographers.
By hiring me for your baby session, you can rest assured, your new baby is in the safest environment with the safest equipment and hygienic practices.
My style is very simple, I like my images to be sharp, I like them to show detail, I’m a lover of colour and shadows, but I also love neutrals just as much.
Holding and working with babies is the most amazing and best career in the world, but seeing happy tears in parents and grandparents eyes, when they see the images of their new baby/grandchild is the absolute reason I do what I do.
I provide families with something priceless, something so special. More precious then a wedding day, more than any time in my clients lives. The first few weeks of a babies life is over so fast. Parents memories are foggy when sleep deprivation kicks in. I capture that moment, and the details. The images are your ticket back in time, if only for a moment, you will remember what your baby looked like and I take my role very seriously.
