Big Brother is Watching Out for You...

Anyone with an older sibling will know what I mean I say there is no other love like it. There are times when you fall out, fight like cat and dog, blame each other for something that the other did - the list goes on. But there are equal amounts of sticking up for each other, protecting one another and having each others back when it matters the most. I'm almost certain these two little guys will be no different. But it's impossible to hide how proud and protective this big brother was during the shoot and being able to capturing this makes my heart melt. Truly proud of his little brother in every single way, this is one big brother that will be a force to be reckoned with!

As Snug as a Bug an a Rug

Sometimes, just sometimes, I wish I could be wrapped up as snug as this little guy was during his recent visit to the studio. Who wouldn't?! So comfy and cosy - fast asleep without a care in the world with their best pal by their side. He even had a special little outfit crocheted by his Aunty to top off his cuddly slumber photo shoot. Cuteness personified.

🌎Welcome to the world baby Innes! 🎉

It was only three weeks ago that Claire visited the studio for her maternity shoot, along with her little boy who was keen to make sure Mum and his brother/sister were in good hands.

Just 14 days later, a gorgeous little baby brother arrived into the world and he returned to the studio for their new born photo shoot.

What a gorgeous little button and a great wee shoot! 

New Life....

I loved having little baby Izzy over at the studio.  What a sweet little thing she was. She slept like an angel through her session and totally rocked the camera!

Tiny toes, snoozy cuddles and tender kisses.  What a wonderful newborn session. I can't wait to meet back up with this little man in a year's time!

Beautiful Little Eva....

What utter gorgeousness!! We had a completely natural shoot for little Eva - nothing too posed, just simple, perfect little detail shots that speak for themselves.

A Fleeting Moment..

Newborn shoots are among my favourite to do. It's a real privilege to share in that moment when everything is brand new.  The overwhelming feelings and emotions between parent, baby and sibling.  It brings it all flooding back to when my babies were brand new too.  So I know how important it is to capture it.

I love to take my time and set up shots, making sure everything perfect so that mum and dad have some beautiful images to look back upon for years to come.  Memories to cherish. Sometimes, though, it is that split second moment that you have to capture before it is gone forever.  Like the unmistakable connection between sisters that presents itself.  That's where the skill of a photographer comes into its own.  This wonderful little shoot had many moments - but two in particular I think, really sum up the love for a newborn baby and the pride of an older sibling.

Getting Back into the Swing of Things....

I certainly can't complain about going back to work! My maternity leave has finished, and what better way to return than having two brand new babies visit the studio!

Each one completely and utterly adorable!! I do LOVE my job!!

Maternity shoots are one of my favourites - and even more so when the mum-to-be also announces that she has just got engaged! I loved this shoot - double celebrations for this happy couple!
