Oh gosh. Do you even know how hard it is to do newborn photography, with a 2 day old baby, and NOT be broody? (Tip: when they start crying, you can hand them back. That helps NOT being broody.)
So, obviously you remember my adorable little buddy, Esme, whom I photographed quite recently. I couldn’t make it all about her, so I thought it a good idea to photograph the rest of her beautiful family too. Their family lifestyle and maternity photography shoot was SO lovely. Completely laid back, unfussy, gorgeous. (And hilarious, thanks Esme.) I was honoured to capture Mum Louise’s beautiful baby bump – and to return a few weeks later to photograph 2 day old Baby Bertie!
Armed with film and cameras, I spent a few hours photographing the lovely Stewart family in their home in Solihull. Baby Bertie was yummy and squooshy, and the session was brilliant. Louise, John and Esme were all pretty laid back, and Esme was so lovely to her baby brother, as you’ll see at the end.
Massive congratulations to this gorgeous new family of four! <3
