There’s always something special about meeting a newborn even though we’ve met and photographed so many before. Newborn photography is so different to even photographing an 8 week old. There’s a beautiful excitement about meeting a new life and I love being able to capture the joy on parents’ faces as you can see how clearly in love they are with their new baby.
Maybe it’s also how awesome to see this tiny being in comparison to their parents and how fragile they are. Maybe it is still being amazed each time at the work of God to knit this little human in his mother’s womb and to see His creation born into the world.
Meeting Harrison was no different.
As we turned up to their home, his Mum warned me that he had been having unsettled nights and he might be difficult to photograph …but he behaved beautifully and not a tear was shed!
I hope you enjoy these photos
You’d think that this was their first baby but this is their third bub!
