Alex, 2 weeks new, came for his first baby photography session at my studio in Veryan, Truro recently. His parents were colleagues of my other half and we decided to gift them the session. You see Alex is a doubly precious baby after they lost their daughter in a tragic accident a couple of years ago. It's a personal story which I don't have a right to share here, but knowing they had suffered and endured the unimaginable, we really wanted to give them this chance to get the most from their baby boy by having newborn photos done. Life can be so cruel, and so bountiful. I'm sure his big sister is very much with them all in thought and spirit and he is going to loved and cherished every single moment.
He was a cutie, though he made us work hard - he was the boss and his dummy was the only thing keeping him settled. The minute it was pried out he woke up and we had to start again. I'm sure parents start off wondering why on earth a newborn session would take up to 3 hours, but it soon becomes apparent ;) He was utterly gorgeous and I love his natural poses and expressions. And he suited my newly dyed blue flokati which I was so happy to have a chance to use!
