When Hugo was exactly one week old, Josh’s sister Char came to our home to take some photos of us all as a family as well as plenty of our newest addition. While we were taking the photos, it all felt quite surreal. As just seven days before we were all there together whilst I was in the midst of labour. It was like I blinked and there we were with our week old baby.
That first week post birth really does fly by so quickly! Hugo is now six weeks old and has already grown so much. Looking back through these photos for this post had me feeling a little teary. I feel a little sad that I’ll probably never experience these hazy newborn days again. But I am extremely grateful that I have so many beautiful photographs to look back on of both my babies.
I have always admired lifestyle photography. And I loved the idea of having our photos taken in the comfort of our home. Personally I’m not very comfortable in front of the camera, especially not at one week post partum! So being in my own home definitely helped me feel more at ease. These photos are everything I had hoped for and I couldn’t be more happier with them. I’ll let the photos do the rest of the talking!
