unofficial appointed photographer
I first met the Birks in a pub in Southampton when they were deciding on their wedding photographer. We hit it off immediately and I was so lucky they booked me for their wedding.
Claire and Dunk are both mega gym lovers so we did their pre wedding session in the gym which was hilarious. Embarrassingly I was sweating more than them by the end of it and I was only holding the camera! They then got married at Rhinefield House in the New Forest and had the most incredible day.
The next chapter
And just when I thought they would be done with me and my services, they announced they were having a baby WOOP WOOP! So we did a glorious maternity session in the daisies and of course I was champing at the bit to meet baby Evie when she finally arrived.
documentary newborn session
Documentary newborn photography is absolutely my favourite. Your baby, exactly as you see them. Evie was 8 days old in this session and was awake for the whole thing which was amazing as we got to see her gorgeous eyes, we got pictures of her looking adoringly at her lovely mama and paps and a couple of pics of her looking straight at me. HEART EYES.
We captured her little feet, her little fingers, her little creases. We captured the cuddles, the cries and the feeds. We captured an hour of her life at 8 days old, and it was beautiful. I’m now trying to dream up more life events for them to have so I can photograph them too.
Anyway, here’s the result of our lovely relaxed documentary newborn session. There’s a slideshow of pics to music if that’s your thang, or gallery of photos (click on them to view full size).
