‘We take photos as a return ticket to a moment otherwise gone’
We recently had an Autumn mini photo shoot with the extremely talented Charlotte Rawles Photography. Char is in fact my lovely sister in law and we have been lucky enough to have her capture every step of our journey into parenthood including being our amazing birthing partner and taking the most precious photos of my labour & Bella’s birth. She also took maternity photos of us, photos of Bella as a newborn, 3, 6 & 9 months old and a special shoot for Bella’s first birthday. So of course we had to get some up to date family photos for Bella’s second birthday!
I can’t stress enough how important I think it is to have professional photos taken of your little ones. Children grow so fast and capturing these special moments is crucial. Photos are such a lovely thing to have to look back on over the years to come. I often find myself looking back through photos of Bella as a tiny babe and I can’t wait to show them all to her when she’s older.
Charlotte always manages to capture Bella’s growing personality perfectly and in the most natural way. Her style of photography is so fresh. Most of my favourite ever photos have been taken by Char over the years, not only of Bella but I always love the snaps of her own children (Bella’s cousins & our niece & nephews) and even photos from my own Sisters wedding that Charlotte photographed last year. Our home is full of her work and I’m so excited to get these Autumn photos up on the walls!
Here are just a few of my favourites (it was very hard to choose as I love them all!!)
