LOVE AND LEARNING TO REST..
Newborn Photo shoot, Esher SUrrey
I was very lucky to be asked to travel to Esher in Surrey last week to photograph an amazing family with their newborn baby daughter. They came to me via a previous client who had shown them their photos and they got in contact to ask if I could if we could arrange a date to get together. Thankfully I had a session available due to a baby arriving early and we agreed I would visit them at home the following week.
I was immediately struck by how Daiva and Martin were clearly head over heels in love with their newborn daughter. It radiated from them like warming sun rays. They made my job very easy. I spent lots of time chatting to them about the importance of taking it easy and not trying to do too much. Living day to day and just enjoying her company. You don’t get these days back.
I am spending an increasing amount of time with first time parents talking about the same issues, making sure they understand that it’s okay not to achieve anything in a day other than keep their baby fed and changed. The washing up can wait, the laundry can wait, and housework can wait. Nothing apart from yours’s and the baby’s well being matters.
Only invite friends who over like to cook, clean, or hold the baby whilst you shower. The ones who bring something to the table and don’t care if you have washed your hair for 10 days straight.
Anyway, I digress, I know that this Mummy and Daddy are keen to see some of their images, here’s your sneak peek. Thanks for having me.
