I first met Vanessa, Ryan and Paddy for their Maternity Session at the gorgeous Pines during golden hour, and so I was super excited to meet their new addition Hugo! In-home newborn lifestyle sessions are the perfect way to freeze life as you know it now. To be in the photos with your family in your own environment, with all those things you’ll look back on as just a memory one day. The couch you sit on when feeding, the bed you lay on together, the toys your older children play with, and all those little parts of your world which may not seem significant today, but will change and evolve and become just a memory for the future. How often do you look at a photo and stop and smile at it and think ‘Oh, I remember when…’, and all those emotions come flooding back?! This is why I love capturing your memories in your home, and it’s also perfect for families with older children. The session revolves around them – they can be involved when they want to be involved, and they can go off and play in their room when they need a break. No pressure, no posing, just life.
This session was soooo much fun!! Paddy is the most beautiful and affectionate little boy, and I loved capturing him kissing his little brother in those tender moments, but also running down the hallway with his Daddy in those energetic and crazy moments! Vanessa said that during her session she felt “Relaxed and happy. You were great at making suggestions and giving us some guidance, but I also liked how you stepped back and just let things play out so our photos were very relaxed!”. She describes her images as “Special, precious, beautiful”, and after her session she said “I’d just like to say thank you for capturing this special moment in our lives and freezing it forever. There is nothing like the presence of a new baby to make you realise how fleeting each moment is, and how quickly your little people change and grow. We will treasure these photos always, thank you.” Receiving feedback like this means everything to me! Thank you for letting me into your world to capture these fleeting moments for you and your family!
