I was honoured, once again, to be asked by one of my best friends, Naomi, to take photos of their new baby, Samuel. As you know, I took photos of Naomi’s first son, Benjamin, who is also our godson. Naomi and her boys have moved out of Manchester since they had Benjamin, and we don’t get to see as much of each other as we’d like to. So when she asked if I would come over to spend the day with them, I was delighted.
Samuel was 12 days new in these photos, and I have to say, definitely the biggest newborn I’ve photographed! He is just such a long baby and didn’t fit in any of my prop baskets. 🙂 He was also very nosy, not wanting to miss one bit of his photo shoot, so there are few sleepy photos of him.
I had a really nice time with them as a family and tried to capture some of the ordinary moments of life with a newborn and pre-schooler. Here are a few of my favourites. Please also head to Naomi’s blog to read her post about the photos.
