Nothing is more special and has more promise than welcoming home a new baby, it is a whirlwind of emotions. When I brought home each of my boys I was so excited to meet this little human that I had grown for 9 very long months but it was mixed with a big dose of 'what the hell do we do now?'. I loved every newborn snuggle and embraced the huge shift in lifestyle but I still look back on my newborn photos in disbelief that my boys where ever that tiny.
Which is why I was so excited to be able to capture that moment for the Murphy family in a Newborn Photography session recently. Being their third baby they are no strangers to the effects of a newborn and it showed in their relaxed nature and willingness to go with the flow and allow me to snap away photographing their family. I love to get the everyone involved during my newborn photography sessions, so while Baby E fed I took the opportunity to get some photographs of the older two as they played and warmed up to me being in their home.
Managing a newborn photography session with bigger kids can be a balancing act, but it's a balancing act that this family nailed! While Baby E settled after his feed we used the opportunity to capture some family and sibling shots. So we settled in where the light was best and had some cuddles, a bit of a chat and enjoyed each others company while I snapped away taking photos of all their interactions.
Another little feed and after sending the big kids off to play it was time to enjoy some daddy and mummy cuddles. I love seeing how content and at home a baby is in the arms of it's parents, the connection is instant and so beautiful to watch.
Thanks to some mummy magic Baby E relaxed enough for some solo shot, and what a gorgeous poser he was.
A little stir from Baby E gave us a beautiful moment between baby and parents to connect and comfort the little man.
This was such a beautiful newborn photography session with so many hidden gems, thank you Murphy family for inviting me into your home to capture these precious moments. Your password protected gallery of images is now ready for viewing, I hope you enjoy these images as much as I enjoyed capturing them.
