Babies really do change and grow so quickly and in the blink of an eye your tiny newborn will suddenly be bounding off to pre-school. As parents we do a pretty good job of pulling out our phones to capture all the delicious stages of our children’s development but we’re rarely in the pictures ourselves. This is one of the reasons why this gorgeous 5 1/2 month old’s parents invited me to their Wallington home. I loved capturing these beautiful moments for them - the little fists in the mouth that accompany teething, the excitement of her emerging ability to sit, and importantly this little family together and so very much in love.
I was delighted when these lovely new parents got in touch to request an at home photography session with their 7 week old baby boy. Having just moved into the area a couple of months beforehand, they were keen to capture some special memories of this new chapter in their lives.
At this age, babies start to become wondrously aware of their surroundings and just how much they are loved and this little one was no exception. It was so lovely to be able photograph the very special love and connection baby, mum and dad had developed in such a short time...
This time last year I took on the challenge of taking a photo-a-day of my girls throughout the month of January. It was such a rewarding project that I've decided to try and make this an annual event.
Getting the camera out every day - even when I'm not really feeling it or the weather forces us inside for yet another day - really pushes me to think outside the box, take some risks and test my creativity. Most importantly, it's an opportunity for me to document the lives of my children as they grow and change - their routines, the things they love, their happy moments and maybe even their not so happy moments. Enjoy!
