At last I got to meet little Charlie! I've been waiting since his parent's maternity session, and he decided to come out 2 weeks post due date! I went over to his home in Redruth for it. We stuck to his nursery and his parent's room which were light and comfortable. He was calm and relaxed most of the time, but wanted to stay close to his mum and dad, and so we stuck mainly to lifestyle type shots.
It is such a privilege to be allowed into that intimate space of a family with a newborn. Charlie was 7 days old, and his Jenna and Dave were completely besotted with him. It brings back so many memories of what life is like when you've just had a baby. The tiredness, the awe, the love. I think we all could have spent the day just staring at him, but I wanted to leave them in peace as soon as I could. The session lasted 3.5 hours which is quite long, and I imagine very tiring for them all. We stopped for many feeds and cuddles and I managed to capture many moments which I hope will bring back memories off this time in years to come!
