Clinic Check Up Day! I was quite nervous before the clinic appointment as I had noticed my daughter’s hip felt like they were clicking when she kicked around. I had never noticed this before. I was so worried we had gone backwards. Was it possible to go backwards??? I started to count up the times I let her go for ‘just a little bit longer’ in her brace free hour. I began to feel guilty. I also had a few questions for the specialist today as well. I had planned on writing them down but in my concern for the new clicking, had forgotten to pen them. When we went in to see our doctor he entered the room wearing quite a serious face where he has previously had a smile. My heart sank. He said he had just had a look at our ultrasound and there hadn’t been any progress. I was instantly relieved as I knew he hadn’t yet seen our latest ultrasound.

Introducing Luca. This newborn shoot was booked in quite a hurry as Luca is already 4 weeks old (oh how time flies when you are on the rollercoaster of New Parents!) when his mother got in touch for photos.

The final images were very well received by his parents which is what drives my passion for photography.
I love family and toddler photo sessions. I always ask parents to bring along a favourite toy or two if their photo session is at a location other than their home. It is those aspects of their childhood that I want to capture as well. It is these less formal photos of the children going about their daily lives or with a special toy that I feel will be treasured just as much, if not more, than the more posed images. NB: Some have the faces cropped out or I deliberately chose images without faces as they are from old photos and I haven’t obtained permission from their parents to post the photos on my blog.
Ah, newborns. Master F was a tiny little one. This photo session was his first time out and about since getting home from the hospital and he handled it all so well! Newborn feet will always be my favourite part to photograph. He was so alert at times, soaking in the sights. Other times he slept so soundly.
