I love it when I get to do new shoots for old clients. In this case, I’ve photographed this couple a number of times, including their wedding and a 1920’s style shoot for their Save the Date cards. You can also see a Vintage Boudoir photo that I did of Amy hanging in the Baby’s room.
So when their little bundle of joy arrived, I was so glad they picked up the phone and booked a shoot after giving birth at St George’s Maternity Unit. Amy says, “Having used Julia Boggio in the past for not only our wedding, but also for fantastic couple and vintage boudoir shoots, it was a natural choice to use JBS for the next milestone in our lives – to welcome our little one into the world! We hope to continue to have family portraits as our baby, and our family, grows. Julia is so fun and comfortable to be around, it was like hanging out with an old friend.”
We did the newborn shoot at their home in Wimbledon, not far from our studio in Merton Abbey Mills, when the baby was about 5 weeks old. “I loved having the shoot at home, as it felt very like we were being captured as we are every day, and the shots of the nursery and our baby in her Moses basket will be wonderful memories in the years to come.
“There are no words to describe how much we love these photographs. The shots speak for themselves and everyone we have shown just loves them! They are fun, sentimental, and cute.”
Thank you, Amy! Glad you loved them and I look forward to many more shoots in the future.
