A couple of weeks back I posted Emmerson Garland’s Fresh48 Session. This sweet little dot was just 24 hours old when I first met her at Birthcare and I was really excited to return 10 days later to photograph her and her beautiful family again. This time in the comfort of their own home.
When I arrived at Emmie’s home she was happily snoozing, giving me a chance to first get to know her gorgeous siblings, Greta and Carter, a little better. They were keen tour guides, showing me their rooms, their favourite toys and their best hiding places. When Emmie eventually woke it was time for family snuggles, the obligatory demonstration of big sister’s maternal instinct and (to my surprise) a little light hallway stripping from Carter. Never a dull moment in this house obviously!
Emmerson then put on a stellar performance of her own resulting in one of my favourite collections of newborn ‘un-poses’. And these honest, personality fuelled expressions are one of the things I love most about lifestyle newborn photography.
Jodi and Mark, thank you so much for choosing me to capture this milestone in your family’s journey. I love that you were so willing to embrace my style and to spend the morning with me in such a relaxed, enjoyable way. I hope that I’ll be invited back for the next big event.
