Roughly 4.5 years ago Dom froze as he held my baby boy first the first time, he didn’t have a clue what to do, so like many guys holding a baby for the first time, he froze. He sat there rigid, unable to move until the pain in his arms became too much to handle and he handed him back to us.
Isabelle, my daughter, was less than 2 weeks old when I took these photos, the ideal time to take newborn photos.
It's ideal because under 2 weeks old babies sleep, they sleep a lot, and when they are asleep they're often in a deep sleep, which means it's easier to place them into different positions.
I did the same thing when my son Ethan was born, in fact you can see his newborn photos in my portfolio and on the blog.
After making the room nice and warm and after getting Isabelle nice and settled I came away with these shots. Everything went smoothly and thankfully there was nothing the clean up after either, result, she was the perfect model and I love her to bits.
Expect to see more photos of Isabelle over the coming months.
I loved Lily's portrait experience, those big blue eyes are just mesmerising, I could have spent all day photographing her. While those big blue eyes are so beautiful I still love my monochrome photos, they offer a real timeless quality that I just can't get enough of at the minute. Here are 4 of my favourites from the portrait experience.
Lily turned 6 months old when I shot her portrait experience; having my own son around a similar age as Lily, I can't believe the change in him just a few months later. I'm so pleased I was able to captured Lily at this age and I hope her photos last her a lifetime.
As part of my new year resolution, to share more of my photos, I'll be posting loads more photos to my blog in the coming weeks, I hope you enjoy.
Sneak peek following Zara's portrait experience today. I love the colour and the black and white, so I just couldn't resist sharing them both. Thank's to Joanne for booking me, it was great to meet you and Zara, she was so well behaved and loved playing peek-a-boo.
I look forward to sharing the other great photos with you soon!
My son, Ethan is 6 months old today! Wow, how time has flown by! It's been hard work, but it's also been so much fun. He's developed so much over those 6 months and he's now a happy little chap who brings so much joy to me, his mum and the rest of our family.
