I can't believe that it was back at the end of March when I visited this lovely family! I had previously joined Kate and Simon two weeks prior to document the birth of their newest arrival Florence, which you can read more about here.
I arrived to a house full of calm, that is until Luna, the lovely Cockapoo, came bounding in full of energy! She has to be one of the sweetest dogs I have ever met, constantly nuzzling herself in for some love and attention.
We all sat and chatted over a cup of tea whilst Alex came round to me being there, I think my story reading won him over in the end! This little boy who was all shy when I arrived had become my best friend by the time I left.
The session started off very relaxed, Alex happily playing with his toys and looking at books, then stopping to have a snack whilst he looked on at his new little sister having a feed.
Once everyone was fed and watered we headed upstairs to get some family shots on the bed, although Alex had other ideas! It was so lovely to hear him squealing with laughter as he jumped all over the bed, whilst we all nervously watched, ready to catch him should he jump that bit too far!
We then headed to Florence's nursery where the fun and laughter continued. It was absolutely perfect as we got some really lovely natural and relaxed 'in the moment' shots which I hope they will treasure forever as a family.
It was lovely to spend the morning with them as a family of four and document the early days with their newest member . . .
