I feel drawn to write this post this morning as I reflect on the number of new parents who arrive at the studio, trying their absolute best to do well by their new little bubba. It’s when they share a little comment somoene once made, a midwife who didn’t listen, a friend’s judgement or the long list of contradictory things ‘they definitely should be doing for their baby’ and then look at me with a combination or a little lost, a little overwhelmed, a little emotional, a little overtired and a whole lot of vulnerability that I feel incredibly drawn to protect them, support them and most of all encourage… Keep Reading
I first met this couple when i photographed their wedding many moons ago. It still stands out in my mind when they put such unique and special twists on every element of styling.

So many special moments. A session full of snuggles is my kinda session!
Oh my goodness. How sweet is teeny tiny little Samranika. 25 days old and completely wrapped in love. I truly love that newborn sessions allow new parents to just be. Be in the moment, be with their babe. To retell their story, to digest the life changing events that were the moments that lead up to them becoming parents. It is not lost on me how precious, vulnerable, overwhelming and heartwarming this time is. Newborn sessions for me are not just pretty pictures and socking up baby cuddles. This is a freeze frame of a moment in life that will soon become a complete blur.
The sweetest start to my Easter long weekend was welcoming this gorgeous family! Meet little Niall and big sister Ava.
Even after all these years of photographing new little babies, I still love the process of meeting a family. I love learning about their family and how they tick….whilst having lovely cuddles with their new little baby. This session was no exception. Such a pleasure to spend the morning together and I had the best little helper in this most loving big sister.
