Your memories matter
Every single time I walk into a home for a newborn session, I feel so privileged to be capturing such precious memories for a family.
Freezing moments in time that will matter so much in years to come.
Because the truth is that motherhood is not instagram-perfect. It is raw and real. It is you fighting to bring a new life into this world and then sacrificing your sleep, your body (and sometimes your sanity) in a bit to ensure that precious baby of yours thrives
When I look back on they days when my babies were brand new, I find that I want to remember my endless fascination with those tiny frowns, yawns, stretches and smiles. I want to remember how my son curled into my chest, snuffling away in sleep. How my daughter’s tiny head almost fit into the palm of my hand.
I want to remember that slightly terrifying, all-encompassing, gut-punching rush of love and emotion the moment you realised you had become a mother for the first, second, third or even fourth time.
I want to remember how we adjusted to our lives changing forever.
This is why I don’t pose newborns.
I love every minute of celebrating the magical first moments of a new life, of celebrating you and your family in those raw and real moments of new parenthood.
Natural newborn photography sessions, just about my favourite part of my job!
