This is a very special blog post. Not only because little Oliver shares a birthday with me, but also because it was a first session after the birth of our little girl.
I received an email from Lauren 2 days after I had given birth to my daughter. Before she was born and considering we also have a 3 year old, I wasn’t expecting to take on any work for at least a couple of weeks after the birth, however, Lauren and Ian enquired about a newborn session, they were referred by my other clients and they live practically next door – how could I say no?!
Having children and especially a newborn, I know exactly how valuable those first few weeks are, how quickly babies grow and change and how precious those first memories are to the parents. This is exactly the reason I did a picture every day of my son’s first year and currently doing the same project for my daughter (more on that in a separate blog post soon).
So there I was with a 6 day old baby sleeping at home happily packing my camera bag so that I could capture special moments with Oliver for Lauren and Ian.
Lauren and Ian, thank you so much for trusting me this very important and special job to capture your little man’s first days. I am honoured and happy to be able to have done it for you and happy you will have those images to treasure for years to come.
