I was so happy to do this session for my friend Emma and her family. We met when I first started out as a photographer in Cornwall, bringing Isla in when she was 6 weeks old (if my memory is correct!). They are also local to the Roseland, so it wasn't long before we were bumping into each other at playgroups and seeing a lot of mutual friends on Facebook etc. I always enjoy a chat with Emma and Ben absolutely loves playing with Isla! I was super excited when Emma announced she was pregnant, just a couple of months behind me! And when she asked for a bump shoot because she'd never done it with Isla it was a no brainer.
We had the session on Pendower beach - one of the better known ones on the Roseland. When there is a child included, these sessions generally are more of a family photo session, with maternity images included. It's all the same really, isn't it?! I love that Emma included me in her decision making for outfits, and I like that they are coordinated without being too matchy. The teal works with the setting and the pink dress Isla is wearing just breaks it up a bit.
It was a bit of a grim day but not raining. We had the session in the late afternoon - I always time it so that if the sun is shining, we get a bit of the golden light. I still like the moodiness of cloudy days and it's great for a soft even light.
Family and maternity photography sessions can be anywhere in Cornwall - take a look in the sessions section for further info or get in touch!
