This happened a few months back now, and I’m not sure why it’s taken so long for me to blog, but this is SUCH a special shoot for me. The lovely Josie (whose family I’ve photographed before) contacted me about capturing her children as they came into hospital meet their new baby brother. Photographing these momentous yet quiet moments are what really makes my heart sing as a photographer.
I love how gorgeous and gentle these children are, but also how normal their reactions are too. Apprehension, wonder, boredom…. and love. For me this is in some small way the reality of meeting your new baby brother.*
