My bump-to-baby photoshoot experience with this beautiful growing family started when mama Jess contacted me to capture the later stages of her pregnancy, and of course some portraits of her new baby a few weeks later. We decided that the studio, with its bright and airy look and homey feel, would be the best setting for both sessions. With a lively soon-to-be older brother, we decided to split our time for the maternity session between the studio and the beautiful wintry locations nearby, which were still holding onto some of their strong autumnal colours.  It was a cold day but with good, clear light. We worked quickly, but toddlers seem impervious to the cold and Tristan was happily zooming all over and being an all-round super cutie!

Back in the warmth of the studio, Jess bared more of her bump for some simple and natural maternity portraits. She was a bit shy at first but fear not – Tristan promptly stepped in to provide some guidance 😀

It was wonderful to get to know one another over cameras and bellies, and it made the newborn photo session a few weeks later even more fun and easygoing. Little one came along right on time, and he was such a super chill baby – an absolute superstar on the day of his photo shoot, both solo and with big brother, Mum and Dad. The love was in the air and just so palpable! Tristan was very protective of his little brother, with not an ounce of rivalry or jealousy, which can sometimes happen when a younger one joins the fold. Again we had beautiful bright light in the studio that day, which enabled to bathe all these image in heavenly brightness!

We also had fun capturing some before & afters tying in with Mum’s maternity photo shoot. Look at their little family grow!
