Newborn photo session - Nelly

December 01, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

I was so excited to meet this little lady for her newborn photo shoot!  I guess I'm excited before every newborn session but it's tinged with nervousness when I haven't met the family before.  I felt like I knew these guys well after their family/maternity session on the beach in October and was looking forward to catching up!  Having had a baby myself 6 weeks before meeting them, we had lots to chat about.  Their twin boys are 7 years old now so I'd imagine lots of details have faded from memory for them and it was good to pass on little bits of info I thought could be helpful whilst still fresh in my mind. 

Nelly is so gorgeous and she was lovely and chilled.  I loved the colours we used and the shots we got, but my favourite part was seeing the boys' reaction when it was their turn for photos.  Their excitement at being able to cuddle their new baby sister was palpable and so sweet.  I would never have placed Nelly with them if I doubted they could handle it, but they were thrilled with the responsibility and it was really the cutest thing.  The moment that will stick in my happy memory bank is when Alfie had her in his arms, and he asked his parents with a Christmas morning face if he could do this at home too. 

I can't wait to see them all again for Nelly's next milestone session at 3-4 months!
