I’m firmly of the belief that if a photograph moves you to tears it’s a great photograph. But what if the act of seeing the photograph made is enough?
Darling Milla was born on Christmas day, seven days late (and proving that you need to be careful what you joke about in the lead up to baby’s arrival). When I met her one-week later emotions were still running high. Dad Tom had finished work on their newly renovated home just days before she arrived and I think he must have laid a little extra love in those walls because the rooms were brimming with it. Tears streamed and the adoration for this little princess was palpable.
It was lovely to have the chance to meet 5 of Milla’s grandparents – each hoping theirs would be the longest cuddle. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a newborn so content to be passed from one to the next, happy to be the sleepy centre of attention. It’s no doubt that this little girl is going to be doted on by all - and I can’t say I blame them!
Katie and Tom, thank you so much for spending a lovely relaxed morning with me. It was truly a pleasure to photograph you and to see how much you adore this gorgeous little girl of yours. I look forward to being invited back to photograph each of the remaining 5 grandchildren you’ve promised your parents! ;o)
