Newborn Photo Session in Hornchurch 12 day old baby girl

I first met this lovely family of four three years ago, when I was invited to take some family photos of them at their house in Hornchurch. I had such a lovely time with them and always fondly remembered their session. I was thrilled when they contacted me again earlier this year and asked me to photograph their newest arrival, baby Freya. It was wonderful to see them again and this time meet little baby Freya, at 12 days old.

As such a fresh newborn, Freya was a dream baby to photograph. Completely chilled and with gorgeous squishy cheeks! The older siblings were so proud to show off their new baby sister and the parents were just beaming with happiness. The session was completely relaxed and dictated by the baby’s rhythm. There was a break for feeding, changing, rocking – all while the other two kids were playing and showing me their rooms and favourite toys.

I love it when my past clients contact me again and want me to take photos of their growing families. I feel like a friend being invited into their homes and recording the new chapter in their lives. These sessions always fill me with so much happiness and I love seeing how much the babies or kids have grown since our last session.

See below for the first part of the photos – there were simply too many good ones to fit into this one blog post!

This is the second time we have booked Alina to take photos of our family, this time with our new addition for a newborn session. The photos did not disappoint! Alina took it in her stride photographing our crazy family of 5 and produced some absolutely amazing photos. They really capture the children’s individual spirit. She got some wonderful photos of mother and baby feeding and cuddling too, such a special memory of this time which flashes by so quickly and memories fades even faster so these photos with our last baby really will be truly treasured.
