I am not sure whether it is a greater honour to photograph a couple’s wedding day or document their tiny newborn baby during those precious first few days. I definitely feel very lucky to be a part of those big moments in life and to share in them with couples as they become a family.
I have known Jo and Tim for a couple of years now since I photographed their wedding and it was such a pleasure to see them again last week when they drove up from Gatwick especially to have ten day old baby Sophia photographed. I was amazed they were able to make such a big trip like that with a tiny baby when most people would still be in their pjs but they arrived looking great (not even an under the eye bag in sight!) and already seemed like natural parents. Sophia was determined to stay awake for the first while but after some milk, dropped off so we were able to get a lovely mixture of awake and sleeping shots.
Here are a few of my favourite images:
