Today I went to see a beautiful family that lives just down the road from us. The mum, Hannah, got in touch with me after one of our mutual friends put my name forward. She has just had her second baby and she really wanted to do a newborn and family photo shoot. The plan was to take some photos of the 18 day old baby Henry alone and with the rest of his family – mum Hannah, dad Greg and older sister Annabelle, who is not even two years old.
Well, life doesn’t always go according to plan and neither do the photo shoots. While we were able to get enough photos of Henry and his mom and dad, sadly Annabelle was not feeling well and she rather stayed inside with grandma than joining us in their beautiful big garden. If I know one thing from experience, it’s that you won’t get anything picture worthy from an unwell child. So we did our photo shoot without Annabelle but I will be going back to see them as soon as she is better and we will then try and get some photos of the full family.
Henry, on the other hand, was a star (almost literally). He wasn’t very keen on sleeping and he only dozed off for a few minutes but I’m glad I got some photos of him awake – just look at his beautiful big eyes!
Thank you Malone family, it was lovely hanging out with you and I can’t wait to see you again soon!
