It’s no secret that capturing newborn lifestyle sessions is pretty much my favourite thing to do. Those are the days which are so magical, exciting and new, but are also so exhausting, emotional and full of getting to know this new little person who has changed your life forever. These days are also so very fleeting, even if they don’t always feel that way. Your baby changes, your routines evolve and one day you realise that your little one has outgrown their newborn outfit, is starting to smile, and has lost their newborn cry. Capturing your baby and your family as they are in these early weeks in your own home, lets you press pause on life as it is now so that you can always remember it just as it was.
Goldie is the beautiful surprise 4th baby for Sarah and Jai – the little girl who was meant to come into their world and complete their family. Her older brothers and sister all helped to choose her name (big sister Ivy even created a ‘Welcome home Goldie’ banner just to make sure they didn’t change their mind!), and they all were enthusiastic to hold her and love on her during the session. We spent time reading books, cuddling on the couch, singing ‘twinkle twinkle’ to Goldie (and putting her to sleep!!), feeding her, changing her, and feeding her some more!
Nanna is a big part of their lives at home, and so it was beautiful to capture some moments of her with her grandkids as well. Having four kids is just a teeny tiny bit chaotic, so extra love and hands in the house is always appreciated, and is something I love being able to capture. Thank you to this gorgeous family for inviting me into your home to capture some memories for you of life as it is today. Each day, each stage and each moment is truly worth holding onto, appreciating and remembering and every time someone chooses me as their photographer, I feel so lucky!!
