Cuyler Family | Baby Photo Shoot

rebeccagroves-wedding-photographer-baby-shoot-twins-cuyler_0001 cover.jpg

Meet Keenan & Keren! How precious and sweet are these two?!

When Elana was pregnant, herself and her husband, Anton, were shocked to find out that they were expecting twins! A little girl and a little boy who were born just over a month ago, slightly premature. Anton & Elana really wanted to capture their two new little additions while they were still new born and invited me into their home to capture them all as a new family.

Keenan & Keren were so tiny and as good as gold as they lay their sleeping, occasionally they would also nestle into each other which was just adorable to see!

Stella Rose | 1 Year | Baby Shoot

rebeccagroves-photographer-stella-1yr-birthday-party 0001.jpg

Recently I have had the privilege of getting behind the lens for gorgeous little Stella Rose’s first year of life. Stella was born slightly premature last November and I have been doing photos of her from when she was 1 week old.

It has been amazing to see this little girl grow and develop into such a cutie pie! The Pettit family invited me to Stella’s 1st birthday party a few weeks ago as we concluded our 1st year of capturing this precious little life.

Stella Rose | 5 Months | Baby Shoot

Rebecca Groves Photography

This year I am capturing the first year of little Stella Rose’s life. A while ago I spent time with the Pettit family and photographed Stella when she was only 1 week old. She was tiny then – as she had arrived in the world one month premature. Well, she is now 5 months old and it was amazing to see how she had grown, not only in size but in cuteness as well, in such a short space of time!

5 Months old is one of my favourite times to capture a baby, as they are just starting to develop their little facial expressions – as you will see many below given by Stella.

James | 1 Week Baby Shoot

Rebecca Groves Photography

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.

Roxy | 6 Months Baby Shoot

Meet Duncan & Janine’s sweet little 6 month old Roxy.  How cute is she?

Last year I did a maternity photo shoot for Michelle & Janine, who are sisters and happened to be pregnant at the same time and wanted to capture this life changing event in their lives.  Shortly after Michelle had little Aidan and I captured him at 3 weeks old.  Just before Janine had Roxy, but decided to wait until Roxy was 6 months old for her baby shoot.

Stella Rose | 1 Week | Baby Shoot

Meet 1 week old baby Stella Rose! Oh my gosh, how cute and teeny tiney is she?

While Barbara and Charles were expecting, Barbara asked me whether I would capture the first year of little Stella’s life. Little did we know then that she would be premature and arrive a month earlier than expected.

I loved seeing how Lily and Harrison, Stella’s siblings, have welcomed her into the family with big hugs and smiles. The big sister and brother attitude has already kicked in. They love to hold her and give her lots of love.

How precious is he? A while ago Michelle asked me to do a maternity shoot for her and her sister, Janine, as they happened to be expecting at the same time. Now both Janine and Michelle have had their little ones – Janine had a little girl Roxy, who I have the pleasure of meeting and capturing soon, and Michelle had a little boy, Aidan.

The Holdstock’s | Family Shoot

rebeccagroves-wedding-photographer-uk-southafrica-baby H 01

I had the pleasure of photographing the lovely Holdstock family recently….and what a beautiful family! Meet Ryan, Sam, Amy & baby Remi…

Remi turned quite shy when the camera was on her, but after a while warmed up to it and then was posing like a pro – pulling the cutest faces. Amy, Remi’s older sister, reminded me of when I was little – she loves dressing up in her tutu and pulling a brilliant smile – “like Tinkerbell” as she calls it. Cute! We even managed to get a photo with the dog, Huxley, thanks to Amy’s help 🙂

I do love a good party….and when it’s for my God-daughter’s 1st birthday party then who can resist taking a camera with 🙂

Yes, little Willow, who I have been photographing for the past year every 3 months is finally a big 1 year old. Can’t believe it!

On Saturday we went along to her party and celebrated with her and Emily and Ryan and friends. By the end of it I was all ‘sweeted’ and ‘caked’ out 🙂 Isn’t that cake amazing! Made by the wonderful Alice, Emily’s sister.
