I have been photographing this lovely little family since little William was 18 months old. It has been so lovely to form a really lovely friendship with them in this time. When Kate messaged me to tell me that there was going to be a new addition to the family I was so excited for them. I was even more excited when Kate wanted a maternity session and a newborn session once their little poppet arrived.
As soon as we booked Kate’s maternity session in I just pictured it being at the beach. So off we went to Formby Beach where Kate was amazing and climbed the dune heavily pregnant like a warrior! She wanted a balance of photos of just her and her gorgeous bump as well as as some of her, Rob and William as their last few pictures as a three. There is a picture of William just touching Kate’s bump, totally unprompted. I loved at the time but love even more now now this little girl has been born and I saw William show the same tenderness to his little sister. I’m so exceed to shared that newborn session!
I absolutely adore maternity sessions, they document such a special period in your life that mean even more once the baby has arrived. If you’d like a maternity session, or would like to gift one to a pregnant friend or family member, please pop me a message (climbing sand dunes is not mandatory!)
