When Samuel was born, we booked Carina from Photography by Carina to do his newborn photoshoot.
Carina is actually one of my best friends, and she also happens to be one of Ben’s godmothers, so we weren’t going anywhere else!
She came over on Sunday morning, when he was about 10 days old, and took photos of him, and of us all as a family. She also took my profile picture, which even my mum says is the best photo ever taken of me. It was actually a really lovely experience, and despite Ben insisting on Buzz Lightyear being in every photo, she got some gorgeous photos of the two boys together.
Anyway, I thought I’d share some of our favourite photos with you. This post might take a long time to load because they are really high quality.
- If you’re expecting a baby, I really encourage you to have a photoshoot with a professional photographer. Neither Tim nor I are particularly keen on having our photo taken (which is why the Me and Mine project is so good for us), but Carina put us at ease. Nothing fazes her, and she’s very used to working with babies and young children – plus, she’s a mum herself.
We really treasure these photos. The only difficulty is choosing which ones to frame.
