One of the great things about what I do, is that I make great connections with people. I have known many of my clients for several years and you get to see their lives develop and their families grow. I have always enjoyed this part of my work, and particularly re-photographing my favourite clients.
Meeting up with Kat and Shane is always a pleasure. I shot their wedding a couple of years ago, and since then we have kept in touch through Facebook – we were really happy when they announced that Kat was pregnant, and even more happy to hear that they had given birth to a beautiful baby girl – Sophie.
They asked me up to their home in Staffordshire to photograph Sophie while she was still tiny. I remember laughing when my boys were tiny babies and people said ‘you forget how tiny they are…’ but it is genuinely true. The difference that just a few weeks makes is incredible, so it is always special to have photographs when they are at this age. She was a delight to photograph, and didn’t seem to mind me taking photos of her whilst she slept. She looked serene.
So here are some of the photos that I took for them…
