We met today’s gorgeous family of the week through the Mermaid Maternity Retreat, Chelsea.
Mermaid Maternity retreat offers beautiful accommodation and care to pregnant women and new families, and is situated in the heart of Chelsea. We met Mermaid resident Kate at her home, and photographed her gorgeous newborn baby.
“Boggio was recommended to us by the Mermaid Retreat.” Kate explains to us that family portraiture is particularly important to her new family – “In a time when we ‘snap’ so many photos on our phones it is really special to make the effort to create some truly beautiful images that will be in the family forever.”
Kate had a location shoot with our fantastic photographer Katy. She explained that thing she loved most about her shoot was that is was in her own home. “This was amazing as traveling with an 11 day old is very daunting. It relaxing, fun and didn’t take too long!”
“The whole experience with Boggio was really enjoyable. They came to our home for both the shoot and to show us the photos which was so convenient. We absolutely adore the photos and have already recommended them to our friends.”
“Our photographer was Katy Thomson. Katy was creative, professional and incredibly warm and lovely to work with. She put us completely at ease and was so good with our daughter. She managed to manoeuvre her into different poses without even waking her up!”
