I remember so vividly the first few weeks of becoming a mum. It’s a time of wonder and confusing and overwhelming emotions. I remember feeling so accomplished and clever, creating this tiny little human. I also remember not really knowing what I was meant to do with him much of the time. Oh and the lack of sleep – no wonder that is used as a form of torture, right? But like many first time mums’ I muddled through and now he’s almost 10. I joke that he was my practice child (having done it three more times since) but really he was (and still is) my greatest learning curve.
I recently had this session with sweet baby M and her beautiful and unbelievably calm mum. It is so amazing to be able to capture these sweet moments in a babies first weeks. I hope she always looks back at these images with a sense of pride and a heart bursting with love. The newborn stage really is so fleeting.
This is also a reminder that every session held in August receives a bonus 20″ x 20″ collage print of their favourite images from their session (valued at $140). I’ve been loving all the collages that have been ordered so far. You can purchase your session HERE
