On the Sunday the 17th of July I got a surprise birthday present - My son was born. He was a week over due and even though everyone joked I don't think anyone thought he'd actually decide to arrive on my birthday!
I mean what are the chances?
His dad describes him to everyone as a 'lovely little chap', and he really is. These photographs were taken when he was 7 days old, it's hard to believe he is 1 month old already, he has changed so much in the short time he has been born.
He has stolen the hearts of our whole family, particularly that of his big sister (although she's not too keen when he cries or getting too close to his dirty nappies).
I absolutely love taking lifestyle newborn photographs but add into the mix that the mum of the latest edition to the family is one of my best friends whom I met at primary school then for me it really doesn't get any better. Watching my BF's family grow is great and being able to document the special moments in their journey together through my photography is a real privilege.
... A girl who is amazing, adorable, angelic and whilst I was photographing her asleep. I don't believe her parents when they say she isn't like this all of the time ;-)
I photographed this baby-to-be at the end of May, her parents had a bit of a wait to meet her as she didn't arrived until early July. But I think you will agree she was well worth the wait. I photographed her when she was just under 2 weeks old, it was a VERY hot summers day but this didn't seem to bother her.
She was an absolute pleasure to photograph.
