Cuteness overload … meet Maddison {newborn]

I’ve known Jemma and Rob for a good few years now, having photographed their wedding at The Old Kent Barn (you can see their story here) and we have kept in touch over the years.  I was delighted to hear that they were expanding their family … and even more delighted to hear of the safe (if a little early) arrival of Maddison.

At just one week old, Maddison stole my heart. She took a while to settle but we were in no hurry … the light in the conservatory was gentle as the day was overcast and Maddison finally drifted off …

Jemma and Rob also have a petite Boston Terrier and Maddison had received a replica … it’s great when we have the chance to photograph newborns with their first presents as we can use them in the future to gauge how much, and how quickly, they grow!

Maddison also modelled some headbands, made by friends of Jemma and Rob …

With a beautiful princess blanket gifted by grandparents, Peter and Bernie, it was nearly time to finish …

I’m pretty confident that I’ll be seeing lots more of this gorgeous little one. Maddison is already putting on weight and getting bigger by the day and I’m excited to follow her progress.

Sweet baby girl and why it pays to upgrade …

I delivered Aoife’s newborn to one year photoshoot album last week. I really didn’t want to let it go … such a great quality product, filled with images chosen by mum and dad and designed by me. A real heirloom.

Daddy had to navigate the mean streets of London to get home for this newborn shoot …

This little boy is the first boy in the family for a couple of generations … and I think that he is going to be well loved indeed. Little William has a few hurdles to overcome before he is pronounced fighting fit but is the chubbiest, more adorable baby ever! So calm and only had a little cry when he was hungry … the perfect little model for his newborn shoot, turning towards the camera almost on direction! I promised mummy, daddy and Granny a sneak peek … so here it is …

I can’t wait to show you the rest of the images and I’m delighted that you’ve decided to join my ever increasing group of “bump to baby” clients … can’t wait for the next session!

Beautiful {Baby} A … seven weeks old and delicious!

You may remember my “bump” shoot way back in April … a mother’s love. Well, now meet gorgeous baby A who made her arrival seven weeks ago and who is … well absolutely gorgeous! I’m just posting a couple of teasers here as I know her proud dad (and mum too) would love to share them with family … be prepared to fall in love …

This gorgeous little one was the strongest I think I’ve photographed at such an early age. She was incredibly curious … and just happy!

I hope that you enjoy sharing these images with your family … and looking forward to coming back in six months time to see you all again! If you are expecting, or have a newborn, check out my bump to baby packages. All in the comfort of your own home with a beautiful album at the end of the three sessions filled with images of your choice.
