Our journey we have struggled…
Our road has been so long…
But in our hearts we wondered…
And knew that we’d be strong.
So lucky to be rewarded…
With miracles and joy…
A surprise to join our family…
In our darling little boy.
I first met this beautiful family almost 3 years ago when they brought their gorgeous twin girls to me for their newborn shoot (how was that 3 years ago already?) Sweet Poppy & Ivy were delivered after struggling with infertility and IVF and born at just 34 weeks. Thankfully the girls did amazingly well and made it to their newborn session on their 40th day! So you can imagine my surprise (although I’m sure it’s nothing compared to mumma and papa’s surprise) when I got a call to book in this little guys session after a spontaneous NATURAL pregnancy. Doesn’t the body work in wonderful ways?
This luscious little (cough cough big) guy was a beautiful surprise for his family and has filled their lives with so much joy. I am so glad I could capture some special memories as their family grows.
Can we all just take a moment to appreciate these luscious rolls….the joys of being over 4kg!
And these gorgeous felt hearts from Little Jar Big Dreams.
Oh.em.gee…it doesn’t get any cuter than this romper…that bonnet…and that heart?
That little smirk…he may have just pooped here!!(Bonnet from Little Doe Designs)
That intense gaze…like he’s been here before?
Mumma loved this set up…there’s nothing sweeter than a little guy snuggled up in a bed!
Mumma wanted a gallery full of grey’s, navy and mint…to fit in with Edwards nursery….what a beautiful collection, wouldn’t you agree?
There’s just something about little boys in navy….
And I loved this last little set up…snug as a bug in a navy rug? I may have stayed up till midnight last night knitting this navy knit layer for Edwards session but it was totally worth it!
Ashleigh and Chris thank you for sharing your gorgeous family with me again….
Edward you were by far the best surprise yet…even if you were a nosey parker and liked to keep an eye on everything throughout your session!
