You might remember a while ago I captured the first year of little Willow’s life. Now Ryan, Emily & Willow’s family have a new addition – little James came into the world 3 weeks ago, a little earlier than expected and he is so tiny and oh so cute! Emily asked me if I would capture the first week of his life and them altogether as a family. It is so amazing to play apart of people’s lives at such a joyous, happy time and be able to capture moments for them that they will be able to treasure forever.
I have loved seeing Willow’s life and personality develop the past few years of capturing her and now I am equally as excited to watch little James grow up too.
We had a few laughs as we tried to get Willow and Emily & Ryan’s dog, Zula, all into the same shot with the whole family. Willow loves the camera, as she is used to it now, however she also now knows that you can see yourself in the back of the camera after a photo is taken – which made it fun every time I took a photo as she plodded over to me to view herself on the screen.
Little James on the other hand, being so tiny, slept soundly as I worked around him.
I love the quilt he slept on that Emily’s mum, Lindsey, had made especially for him. As Emily’s family are from England – Lindsey had incorporated aspects of London into the quilt. Sweet!
Welcome to the world little James and thank you Ryan, Emily, Willow and Zula for letting me capture you as a family.
