I have been meaning to post these baby portrait photographs for a while now, but this Summer (what we had of it) seems to have whizzed by and all of a sudden we are in October!
We have known Evan and Kellie for several years now, having met them through close friends. Evan is an extremely talented carpenter, as well as a great builder, so when we needed a new kitchen it was he who guided us through the quagmire that is choosing, designing and then fitting our fabulous new space. He was very patient with us.
Kellie was pregnant during all of the preparations and when we started pulling the old kitchen apart, and then suddenly, in the middle of fitting all the new cupboards in, Keira decided to surprise us all by making a slightly early appearance, wanting to come in to the world two weeks early.
When she was more fully settled in her new life, and Evan and Kellie were more used to the sleepless nights, I popped over to take some baby and family portrait photographs for them. Even though we have two boys of our own, it never ceases to amaze me how quickly children grow. I love being able to take photographs of them at such a young age, shots that parents can treasure for many years to come.
All too soon children are running around the house, chattering away non stop and although it is great fun taking photos of toddlers, it is also lovely to be able to take photographs of them at their most peaceful and relaxed baby stage as well.
p.s. The kitchen was finished, and it is amazing, we could not be happier with it. Our boys love being able to help with the cooking now, and we never seem to stop having friends over for dinner to show it off. Huge thanks once again Evan.
