    Molly ~ 9 days

    Beautiful Molly! It was lovely to arrive for her newborn session and be greeted at the door by big sister Lucy! I’d last seen Lucy over two years ago at her newborn session, and couldn’t believe how much she’d grown into a gorgeous lively toddler. With a family dog to add to the mix, Molly’s newborn session was hectic and fun, but still with plenty of calm sleepy moments for Molly to star as the new addition to this lovely family. I want to say a heartfelt ‘Thank You’ to their Mum & Dad for inviting me back! It’s a…

    James ~ 6 days

    I was so excited to hear the news when James was born… as I was also looking forward to seeing his beautiful big sister again.

James was a little superstar for his newborn session, and Emily was so happy to join in for some beautiful photos of them together. Because their Mum & Dad chose to have his newborn session at home, this helped James to…

    Nia ~ 7 days

    Beautiful baby Nia has a gorgeous big brother to look up to and protect her as she grows! We had such fun with Hayden too, capturing his personality and love for his brand new little sister. Happily showering her with sweet little kisses for the camera, he too was comfortable and relaxed in his home, able to play with his favourite toys while we were photographing his baby sister for her newborn gallery. These two are going to have such fun growing up together, and we feel privileged to have been able to document the beginning of their fun together…
