Welcome Ralphy!

Well this was an extra special session i was emotionally invested in before I had even met Ralphy's mum and dad.

My first chat with Jade went along the lines of …. I'm expecting my 3rd baby, my second boy, and I would like some images of him with his sister..... I knew what that meant. I knew that meant they had a massive part of their family missing , another son. Jameson.

Jade explained about an image she had in her mind which would incorporate all three of her babies. I soon realised, I would never be able to recreate that image to match the one in her mind and I did not want to try and have her disappointed.

So I suggested we create something different. Something that will include all of her babies. Something she can hang on her wall and something that will make her smile when she sees it.

So we went through a few options and i came up with this image. I just love it.

We got so many gorgeous images of Ralphy during his newborn session and also managed to get a few special ones with some of Dads uniform her had brought with them.

These will be so treasured when this little guy grows up I'm sure <3 We got some gorgeous images of Ralphy with his big sis too!

She was sooo good with him, totally in love <3

I asked Jade to write a few words about why she choose me for her photoshoot. Sometimes I think its better to hear it from the person experiencing the session rather than just me telling you about what we do :)

Here's what Jade said

"We wanted a photo shoot because we never got the chance with our other two and with this being our last baby wanted to have them done. Someone recommended you so I looked at your work and I liked some of the photos you had done that’s why we picked you.

Our experience was fantastic you made us feel welcome and was a laid back atmosphere, did everything that we asked and threw some ideas in that we loved but wouldn’t have been able to think of ourselves. I would highly recommend you to anyone because of how comfortable you made us feel and listened to our requests and did your best to give us photos we can treasure forever x"

Thank you Jade and Jack for choosing me to photograph your gorgeous family!
