It was nearly four years after I photographed Hayley & Andrew’s autumn wedding in Leicestershire, when they invited me to come and meet this new addition to their family… a beautiful baby boy! I had been warned that little Rory had a good set of lungs on him and wasn’t afraid to use them if the mood took him, but to me it’s just as important to capture photographs of a newborn baby crying as it is to try to coax a smile from them. These fleeting moments are all memories in the making. Besides, bar one brief grizzle Rory was as good as gold for his first photo shoot and gorgeous to boot!
As a photographer it’s so lovely to follow a couple’s journey together in this way and I feel truly honoured to have been asked to capture this special moment in time for the happy couple and their first child.
