I first met mum to be Sophie at a charity event at The Retreat Beauty Salon, Oadby, when she was 8 months pregnant and expecting her first child. It was there that I suggested if she was to do a newborn portrait shoot, it’s always best to do it in the first couple of weeks. Babies change so quickly and the way they are right at the beginning you never get back. I can never emphasise enough the importance of capturing that ‘newborness’. Not sure that’s a word but you know what I mean! Anyway Sophie took it all on board and I was delighted to hear back from her in the first week of January with the happy news that Ralph had arrived!

We had such a sweet newborn shoot with the gorgeous Ralph, only 11 days old. He was a joy to photograph. He hardly whimpered at all even though we put him in lots of different locations; including on top of a cake made of nappies! Ralph took it all in his stride and literally slept anywhere and everywhere we put him. Chilled as he was he looked most content nestled in between his parents on their bed.

Just lovely to meet Ralph and spend some time getting to know you all. You really did look the perfect picture of family happiness. Thanks guys for inviting me into your home and for a lovely shoot with your bundle of joy. Xx”
