What’s better than one boy…

well I’d say it’s two…

Adding to our family…

a life that is new…

One more little boy…

to join us with glee…

A little brother, a son…

For our family.

I was so excited to have today’s gorgeous boy in the studio today, and I think with just day’s left to go for 2019, he has been my last little bubba for the year. Now I last saw this beautiful family when I photographed their first little man almost 4 years ago to this day. Their now big boy Jesse had his session on his 99th day after a huge fight in the NICU being born at just 26 weeks. And now what a treat to see this family grow again adding a new, healthy term boy to their tribe! I was super spoiled today, their little man slept up a storm and was so settled and happy, and even big brother was the perfect angel in the studio!

World…Meet Kody.x.

What lucky mumma’s to have such gorgeous boys.

Kody, I hope you left some sleepy dust in the studio for all the 2020 babies to follow you…you really were divine and such a good boy.

Jesse…is it possible you are even cuter than last time I saw you? Even if you did drop chippies all over my floor 😉

Sam and Lesa, it was so lovely to see you both again and watch your little family grow. Welcome to the the two kid family club. Solidarity sisters…lol!

Oh brother of mine, I love you with glee…

Your kisses & cuddles, I know you love me…

But sometimes your snuggles are rougher you see…

Your pinching & pulling so vigorously…

The way that you love me oh brother of mine…

Sometimes it’s tough, sometimes it’s fine…

But you are my twin, half of my being…

I can’t imagine life, without even seeing…

You by my side, to hold to my hand…

To support me & love me as long as we stand…

My brother I love you, the good & the bad…

As long as we’re together, I’ll never be sad.

Oh my lordy, today these gorgeous boy’s were back in the studio and it was all kinds of adorable! I can’t believe they were last in the studio 8mths ago! Time really does fly. There were some smiles, some serious side eye and loads of brotherly love, good and bad! Milestone sessions are always a hoot…lots of silly faces, dancing and hopping around mad from the grown ups! Sometimes it helps and we get loads of adorable faces…sometimes it’s just all serious and furrowed brows. Today…we had a bit of part A and a bit of part B!!! But lots of sweet pictures were captured and it was so lovely to see them again!

World…Edward & Arthur are 8mths!

Our new baby boy is a gift beyond measure…

A wonder to hold and a lifetime to treasure…

With ten perfect fingers and ten tiny toes…

Two bright eyes and a cute little nose…

This soft little one is a bundle of love…

A beautiful boy…sent from above…

His life is a miracle…filled with pure joy…

What a blessing to welcome our own little boy.

 

Oh my goodness, today’s little guy was absolutely divine…the sweetest little personality and full of the most gorgeous smiles (none for the camera of course!!!) When his mumma got in touch she was so worried she had missed out on getting photo’s of her little man. You see when he was born and in that ‘newborn’ stage…well life got in the way and they were super busy just lovin on their bubba. But…before you know it, four months had passed and they were regretting not making the time! Luckily we managed to make some magic happen today and captured some gorgeous shots of this perfect stage too. He arrived asleep and we madly tried to snuggle him up to get some sleepy shots but turns out laying in a strange room in a basket with your arms tucked up isn’t as appealing as one would think! But awake was just as special and it was so lovely to see him in all his cuteness! I am so glad these guys didn’t miss out all together. I absolutely got lost in this sweet boys ginormous big eye’s, long lashes and pouty lips…boy’s always get all the stunning features, right? Anyway…stop going on and just share the pic’s hey?

World…Meet Jake.x.

Mumma asked for a gallery of grey blues to go with these stunning eye’s and I had such fun picking out these gorgeous set ups. baby boy sleeping on grey blanket wearing grey romper and grey bonnetJake had the best smiles ever…and lots for me…but as soon as that scary black camera came up he tucked them away! Luckily I managed to capture a few sneaky one’s! Baby boy sleeping on blue fur with blue wrap Baby boy in blue romper on blue blanket wearing knit bear bonnetHe wasn’t too sure about my bonnets but this had to be done…cute alert!! Baby boy in cane basket wearing grey romper with grey blanket and curly felt on white wooden floor holding knit bear with bonnet Baby boy in cane basket wearing grey romper with grey blanket and curly felt on white wooden floor Baby boy in blue romper in wooden trencher with jute layer and blue blanket on wooden floorHe was contemplating sleep here…not sure why he didn’t want to sleep in my wooden bowl? baby boy on grey blanket wearing grey romper Baby boy laying on grey fur nakedAnd of course we had to end the session with some cute little baby bootie…and I’m excited to say, there were no ‘accidents’ either!

Oh baby Jake you are so divine and welcome in the studio any time.

Four months is such a sweet age to capture, please don’t sit at home all sad thinking you’ve missed your chance at pictures cause there is all kinds of gorgeous at all the stages. Did you miss out on ‘newborn’ photo’s? Get in touch today, I’d love to hear from you.x.

Precious as a snow flake

Yet stronger than a dream

Our tiny little baby

Fought harder than we’d seen

Overcome such battles

Growing strong each day

Our darling little dove

Loved in every way

You brought us all together

Winding through our heart

Sweetest little Grace

We’ve loved you from the start.

 

I never could have hoped and dreamed that today’s session would happen. This sweet girl is such a divine miracle and I have been patiently waiting for her safe arrival for such a long time now. She brought two gorgeous families together and filled the heart of my dear friend so the fact the she has finally arrived after so many hurdles is the greatest blessing. After being born too soon and spending time in the NICU, doing lots of growing and getting strong, she was finally well enough to go home! Which meant we had to get busy planning a very special session. Lots of dreamy creams and dusty pinks perfect for such a gorgeous little love. It was also extra special to be able to give this little Miss some extra lovin in the NICU and then in the studio considering her mumma was also my amazing obstetrician who literally saved mine and my little guys lives! So without further ado….

World….Meet Grace.x.

I feel so blessed that I have been here to watch you grow from strength to strength and today was the absolute celebration of that courageous journey. Thank you for being so lovely and for all of the snuggles along the way!

Megan and Tim thank you for sharing your little love with me, she is everything and more. Thank you for looking after me with such strength and love, I hope you have felt it in return.x.

Eeeeeep! I’ve been busting for today’s session to happen and it was all that and more! A few months ago my colleagues at Paedicare Paediatricians held an amazing event for families and new parents to attend. The ‘Your New Baby – What To Expect In Your First Year’ event was an overwhelming success in helping expecting parents navigate the often tricky first year with their new babes.

I was super excited to participate and jumped at the chance to donate a session for one special family. So many expectant mumma’s and papa’s attended the event but only one could be the lucky recipients and today that sweet family brought their gorgeous new addition to the studio and we captured some amazing memories of their little love. I always adore meeting new families and today’s were no exception. Andrea and Jonathon I am so glad it was you who won!

Rows of seats with green gift bags on each seat in a room

Now today’s gorgeous little girl was so very sweet and slept up a storm…apart from a few minor body fluid incidents…we had such a lovely session and it was a pure joy to meet her. Pouty lips and an intense furrowed brow, she was all kinds of lovely!

Newborn baby girl sleeping on cream blanket with tan knit wrap and lace bow tieback Newborn baby girl sleeping on cream blanket with tan knit wrap and lace bow tiebackMumma and Papa chose the most delicious colour palette of neutrals and blush pink and with Elsa’s creamy complexion it worked perfectly. How stunning will these images be hanging throughout the family’s home?

Andrea and Jonathon it was so lovely to meet you today. Thank you for bringing your gorgeous girl to the studio and for letting me capture special memories for your family. Clearly the Paedicare event was a huge success, not only did we get to make today’s magic happen but it was a true joy watching you as new parents to your darling little love. Elsa is one lucky little girl.x.
