I first met Edward when he was still inside his mummy’s tummy. Mette asked me to take some photos of ‘the bump’ and to come back to capture some newborn images once Edward had been born. The pregnancy photos were taken with less than 3 weeks to go to Edward’s due date, and we were cutting it a bit fine, as he arrived 2 weeks after the shoot. I took the photos of Edward when he was just 4 weeks old – though it’s hard to believe with all that hair and his huge blue eyes. It never ceases to amaze me how new babies come out with their own personalities and their own individual look. Edward was no exception, he was wide awake through the whole shoot – apart from a very brief interlude for a post-feed stupor! – and incredibly alert, taking in all that was going on and sharing a joke with his mum. Dad Mark probably thought he had come home from work late enough to avoid being photographed, but he was just in time for me to capture a few images of him with his son. Overall, a very enjoyable few hours with a lovely family and a gorgeous little boy.
