Quiet moments just sitting and watching baby sleep, the delight in their eyes when they see your face, the amazing strength with which they can grasp you finger.
Beautiful, quiet moments, captured in black and white, which will capture forever just how tiny this little person was.
In years to come, you will look at these images and shake your head in amazement as you pick up size 13 basketball boots that are lying around on the bathroom floor.
Capture the closeness and security they feel when being held by Mum and Dad and marvel at the contrasts in size and texture.
I don’t believe that your newborn needs to be dressed up in cute outfits or photographed in a birds nest or flowerpot!
They are an amazing, unique, wondrous person in their own right and in some ways I feel that it is disrespectful to the person to play dress-up at this special moment in their lives.
If you don’t need to be in fancy dress to have a meaningful portrait taken then maybe, neither does your newborn child.
Lets just concentrate on how special they are and the love and family that surrounds them, and we will end up with images that will be meaningful for the rest of their lives.
This is a fleeting moment that is passed through all too quickly.
