I remember the bubble of the first 2 weeks after bringing my newborn baby home. When I am invited to capture this amazing time for new parents, I always feel very privilaged- it is a really special time to capture.
Meet gorgeous Harper. It was lovely to meet him and his parents late last year. He has the cutest expressions and didn’t want to miss a thing during his very first photo shoot! I try to capture every little thing in these shoots- not just the adorable newborn baby, but the love in the house, the strong bonds between baby and parents and the little things that we forget as our children grow- the mobile we lovingly hung in the nursery that kept baby amused. The chair we sat in during those silent, dark hours as we fed and comforted our little ones. The shoot is so much more that photographing your baby. It is freezing this moment in time so you can look back on this amazing story in years to come, when those sleepless nights seem a lifetime ago.
Baby Harper was eventually persuaded to sleep by Dad, who danced around the nursery singing to his beautiful baby son. Unfortunately you don’t see that special moment in these images, but you can certainly see the love!!
