I love photographing mamas-to-be…. capturing the beautiful form of the body and hearing all about the excitement as they wait for their new arrival. We talk birth and life with a new born…. It’s the start of an amazing journey and I adore being part of it.

This serene mama was carrying her second baby and we spent a lovely morning, hanging out in her gorgeous house just before Christmas. I visited again last week to meet her new baby girl, who was so tiny and absolutely perfect, and looked totally divine bundled up in her swaddle…. and the best part, I always get a cuddle before I go….

These are the moments to treasure.

    Oh how I love these pictures! There is nothing so moving than newborn life. You captured this tiny beginning so beautifully! I love the natural light and the simplicity. No artificial newborn posing but just life as it comes…wonderful!

    spectacular. I especially love the two very different shots in the bay window — the soft dreamy color, and the crisp silhouette in b&w — so well done.

    and I agree, this IS how a gorgeous newborn session looks.
