One of the real perks of my job is seeing the couples whose weddings we photograph go on to have babies and getting asked to come back to photograph them with their new arrivals.
This was one of those sessions. We were lucky enough to photograph the gorgeous Kerry and Paul’s wedding at Hengrave Hall last year and they have now welcomed the arrival of their beautiful baby Zachary. He is such a cutie pie and I got to have a nice big cuddle with him before our session began. Babies who are around this age (he’s around 6 weeks old) are always a slightly tricky age (in my opinion) to photograph as they are past the newborn stage (a lot of those really cute baby photos you see where the babies are all squished up and tiny are done within days of them being born) where they will curl up but are not yet at the stage of supporting their own heads and smiling. Despite all of that I’m really pleased with all the photos we did get and Zachary was a little star (I suspected he would be as Kerry and Paul are both fab at having their photo taken!) … posing and squishing up were no problem for him and I swear he gave us his first smile (although I will confess it may have been wind … his not mine!)
Here’s a small selection from their session
