Back in May I spent a very fun, happy couple of hours with four generations of the Baines Family.
Sweet Miss P, the most recent addition to the family, was making her English-soil debut from the USA. Along with her Mom & Dad, Aunty, Grandparents and Great-Grandparents, we had a fabulous shoot with oodles of smiles.
I was truly honoured to work with this family; they were so friendly and I felt so comfortable in their home (and gorgeous garden…I may have even asked Grandad to come and work his green-fingered magic at our house!).
So here is Miss P and her delightful family; just a small sample of what is to be oodles of adoring relatives.
Welcome baby Caleb!
After a long 9 months (2 weeks + 1 day!) little Caleb joined the world. I spent a lovely morning with Caleb and his adoring parents when he was just 8 days new. Such a gorgeous, sweet natured chap, just like his Mum & Dad!
I actually photographed Caleb’s parent’s wedding back on October 2011 (remember Dani and Jonny?!) and I was absolutely honoured to be invited to photograph the beautiful new addition to their family.
Congratulations again to you all on the safe arrival of such a sweet boy.
These are the kind of newborn photos that I love – natural and soft, showing off the true beauty of newborns, fluffy hair, curled toes and peeling skin. While I do like the more “posed” styles I’m not a big fan of Anne Geddes-esque shots of babies in flower pots and on scales. When was the last time you visited a friend and their baby way happy snoozing on the kitchen worksurface in their Salter scales…?
Babies are precious and fragile and that’s how they should be shown. I think, anyway!
Can’t wait to see you grow, little man.
