Hugo’s Mummy Paula had contacted me to do her maternity session. We booked it in, however the day before she began getting contractions and was admitted to hospital for the next week to try to delay delivery. Little Hugo obviously wanted all the attention on himself and was very eager to enter the world! She contacted me again once she was home, and we organised a Lifestyle Newborn session for the day before her mum was due to fly back to Brazil. Her husband was unfortunately away for work, but it was lovely to be able to have her mum involved, who had also gifted the shoot to her.

When I arrived, her mum was in pyjamas as she insisted that she didn’t want to be in any photos. Throughout the session though, it was obvious how much love she had for her daughter and grandson, and she couldn’t stop herself from jumping in some photos. I’m so glad she did, because they’re some of my favourite images. Both women showed such natural emotion when hugging and kissing Hugo. Their passion and adoration for him just bounced through the photos and made my heart sing. These are the types of images I just LOVE to capture. Hugo was so happy and awake during his session. Paula insisted that he could be grumpy, however I saw no evidence of that at all! He was just perfect!
