Life is full, it has so many up's and down's, but bringing a new baby into the world is definitely one of those up's. It is a new chapter in your family story, it is beautiful, surreal, challenging and simply amazing.
There are so many emotions when you are planning or find out you are pregnant, excitement, sheer terror, doubt, confidence, excitement again...it's a rollercoaster, just like life. You start asking yourself, Are we ready? Is now the right time? Can we afford this? Will we be able to give our child the best life? Will I be a good Mum or Dad? Nothing can prepare you for welcoming your first child into your lives, but I can promise you, you will never feel love like you do when you have a child, you will wonder why life felt so full before you had a baby (and what you did with all your time) and you will never, ever regret it.
The Rogers family, you may remember from their maternity session a little while back, you can see that here. They welcomed baby Olivia into the world in late May and we did her Newborn session when she was 3 weeks old and she was a pure joy. Elise and Matt are so cool and calm and absolutely smitten with their precious baby girl. We relaxed around their home, shared stories about birth, childhood, parenthood and giggled at the little facials and sounds Olivia was giving us. It was a true honour and pleasure to witness and capture this new chapter for this gorgeous little family.
If you are having a baby soon, I would love to chat to you about capturing this very special time. You can contact me here.
