Photographing babies and children has been a big love of mine for many years, almost an obsession. I am so engrossed in those big curious eyes observing the world around them, tiny hands exploring new textures, that first coo, babble or word! My hands immediately twitch for my camera.
Capturing them as they are.
Documenting life with your new love. Letting them show off new things they have learnt and shine through their personality.
So the past year it has been my honour to document this gorgeous little lady’s milestones.
I have photographed her since she was a few weeks old, a tiny bundle of beauty. Those gorgeous tiny fingers and toes! Her Mum and Dad completely captivated by her.
When Phoebe was 6 months old it was Christmas! So we thought including some of her first Christmas surroundings would go perfectly with her next shoot. There really is nothing like beautiful twinkling christmas lights and cuddles with Mum and Dad.
How quickly time goes! Phoebe was now fast moving, observant of everything and so funny!
All of a sudden Phoebe was turning one!
Her mother Lucy, wanted Phoebes birthday to be caprtured in some way. Not the usual cake smash or party. So we had a brain storm and came up with a garden shoot (In Nanas garden) with bunting and birthday paper. Phoebe could explore, show off everything she’s learnt and just be herself.
Phoebe was perfect on the day of the shoot. So happy and a complete ray of sunshine. All smiles and gorgeous laughter. The images of Lucy and Phoebe together were so natural in the story of mother and daughter.
My time photographing Phoebe was an absolute delight. She was so relaxed around the me and my camera. By the time we got to her birthday she was so used to me she barely noticed I was there.
