There is nothing sweeter than the first few weeks at home with your newborn. Nothing tougher, more exhausting, more frustrating, more nerve-wracking, more stressful but ultimately more magical and blissful and exhilarating than those first few days of getting to know this new person who has moved in permanently.
Sophie was my yoga instructor for the first few months of my pregnancy and under her very patient and watchful tutelage, I became more comfortable in my new unwieldy body. She is one of the most calm, kind, & joyful people I've been lucky enough to meet so I was honoured when she asked me to come to her home and photograph her beautiful family after the slightly earlier-than-expected arrival of Sebastian. Sophie and her huband Daniel were so relaxed and easygoing throughout our almost 2-hour session. It was the most natural thing in the world to spend the time cuddling and gazing at their sweet boy whilst I stood by, snapping away and attempting to capture the overwhelming love in the room.
I like to think I did them justice. Enjoy.
