Little Poppy is Helen and Jimmy's first bub and was 4 months old for her first photo shoot. When we asked them how they would describe her, Helen said "She is a super-human baby!!! She is so content, happy and satisfied all the time. If I could sum her up in two words it would be addictive-ally adorable".

Helen and Jimmy wanted to capture Poppy at this particular time, as her hair colour was changing from dark to a little blonde/reddish colour. They found this quite surprising as they both have blonde and reddish hair!!! Helen said "It was funny to see her born with dark hair because no one else in the family has dark hair!!".

Anita & Phillip wanted to capture little Aaron at the same age as Aidan when he was a newborn, just a few days old. It was important for them to have a record of the two boys at the same stage. Aidan is a very energetic 2 year old and loves his new little brother, "he is still getting used to the idea of sharing the attention", Anita said. 

 

Anita & Phillip loves being parents of two boys, to see them grow and watch their love for life blossom with every cheeky smile. "It was a challenge trying to get Aidan to sit down in one spot for the photos" Anita laughed "but our photographer...
