I always get a pang of excitement when I arrive at a newborn lifestyle session. There is always a wonderful atmosphere at the family's home. Whether that is soft and calm or crazy and chaotic, it is always joyful with an overwhelming sense of love and connection between all the family members. My excitement is followed immediately by feeling broody as I meet the brand new teeny tiny human and see the looks on the faces of the people around, and how utterly in love and in awe they are. When I met little Theo, he was the epitome of cool. He was so chilled out and happy, his big bro, Henry adored him and he wore the best outfits. My broodiness was flying high
We kicked off with a lovely cup of tea and I got to know 2 year old Henry a little better. He showed me around his beautifully renovated home, but most importantly, he introduced me to his toys, his Mum and Dad and last but not least, his brand new little bro
We took our time during the shoot, making sure it was super chilled and lots of time for snacks and milk breaks. I love photographing these little moments in between, which are part of the everyday. There was plenty of time to explore a few different rooms in the house, from Theo's room, to the kitchen, the stairway, the lounge and the master bedroom
My absolute favourite moment was when Henry joined Theo in his cot, and very gently and lovingly read his small sibling a story. When Theo begin to get a little restless, Henry softly placed his hand on Theo's chest which immediately soothed him
A massive thank you to this wonderful family who chose me to document these incredibly precious moments. You totally and utterly ROCK!
