A Baby’s First Year

Back to blog

Over the course of last year we got to know this gorgeous family very well as they came in for a number of shoots with us.  They had been given a gift voucher for our studio when their little girl was born.  “It was a wonderful gift that lasted an entire year. We had 4 photo shoots when she was aged 7 weeks, 6 months, 9 months and 1 year – we literally watched her grow during the sequence of photo shoots!”

As Bee said they came in for their first shoot when their daughter was only 7 weeks old.  I was very fortunate to be their photographer for this first shoot and loved meeting them as they were getting to know their little girl and learn about being a new family.  Over the course of the year we were able to create some gorgeous images for them from super cute shots of their little girl in a lamb outfit for Easter to some stunning family photos which they truly treasure.

“We love photos in general, and family photos in particular are just so precious, and evoke such wonderful memories. We also tend to take a lot of individual photos of our baby (generally quite blurred and on-the-go!), but hardly have any photos of the three of us, so this was a great opportunity to have some beautiful lasting portraits taken, which aren’t at a funny angle or in the dark! The individual portraits of our baby were also beautifully shot and very unique.”Baby lying on chair and sitting on chair “We loved all the props and little outfits that were used, from the adorable Easter bunny suit, to the beautiful set of suitcases and antique bed.”Baby in lamb outfit for Easter

We absolutely loved sharing their little girl’s first year with them and it was such a privilege to be able to create some last memories. We asked Bee to sum up their time with us; “Everyone in the studio was extremely welcoming, warm and friendly, and very good at entertaining small babies! It was fun, enjoyable and memorable!”
