A “Rainbow Baby” is a term that is used to describe a baby who born into a family following a previous pregnancy which resulted in a miscarriage, premature birth, still birth, or infant death. The rainbow symbolises the hope that this new baby brings to the family without forgetting the impact of the storm of losing a child. Baby Loss by miscarriage is something which is very close to my heart and something which happens to more people than you would imagine. It is also a subject that is rarely spoken about. My Story In 1996 my husband and I were overjoyed to find out we were expecting twins. We found out about this pregnancy very early and the twin [...]
It was a good thing this boy was so cute, because he rally made me work hard for the shots! He was not too keen on being naked and did not much like lying on his tummy. But he did LOVE to be wrapped up and and he loved a cuddle!
It was such a delight to photograph this pretty baby girl and to see this family again with their new arrival. Just over 4 years ago I met them for the first time when I photographed their first daughter, Cadence. I have been delighted to watch her grow as I have photographed her every year since. So it was so lovely to have her back in the studio cuddling her precious new baby sister, Phoebe. It was also amazing to do some similar photographs to those we did with Cadence and to compare the two girls. We also did a special photo for Daddy who is a volunteer for the RNLI.
This lovely family welcomed a new baby just before Christmas so we had to wait until the studio opened in the New Year to meet this gorgeous little chap. It was well worth the wait. He was just so cuddly and sweet. It was lovely to capture all the family images showing just how much this new little one was loved. Even his 2 year old big brother showed just how proud he was of his new baby brother.
For the month of April, I will be doing the #MeetyourPhotographer Challenge on Instagram and have been quite enjoying the daily challenge of trying to find something to post on the set topic. The first week is done already and so thought I would write a Blog Post about the week and maybe fill in more details than is feasible on Instagram. So this is what the Challenge Looks like with 30 individual challenges on a specific topic each day. DAY ONE was actually a real challenge for me as it was about ME!! I am usually the one on the other side of the camera and so finding a photo of me was a nightmare. A little bit [...]
