Audrey & May

Anyone who knows me, knows how much I love newborn babies. Like, passionately love them. The first 2 weeks of my own kids life were my absolute favourite. And there was a moment that I considered stealing one of these girls because I don’t think its fair that they got 2.

Newborns are my very favourite subjects to photograph. I like to spend the best part of the day with these new families, soaking up the ‘feel’ of a house that has a new human in it. That feeling only lasts a split second in the scheme of things, and I think its so easy to forget it. The mess, the tiredness, the smell, even the sounds. By spending a few hours documenting this ‘feeling’, I hope that I will help families remember it in years to come, because it really is that important.

This is my most beloved way of shooting these beautiful babies, and I adore that even though every family is different, the feeling in the air is very much the same, just….different!

Throughout last year I had a few emails asking weather I do the more posed newborn images, which I had never really considered doing, so this year I thought i would offer it for those that wanted something a little more traditional.

What better models to showcase these 2 different types of shoots than the beautiful Audrey & May, just 10 days old! The first half of this post (its a big one, sorry guys) is my Day in the Life, followed by the more traditional session. New clients will have the choice of one or the other, or both!!

These beautiful little twins are girls 3 & 4 for their family. And including their cousins, I think there are 11! All girls!!! Thank you Maryann and Brett! All 4 of your princesses are amazing! How lucky you are!!!

And here are the more traditional images. Although, I have tried to put my own spin on them……..
