Sharing the love of the beach.

Meeting Katie for a newborn photo session part 1

It was such a pleasure meeting Katie, as I work with her mum in my day job, so being able to capture some beautiful images of her daughter was very exciting.  What made it even better was the fact that we share a love of the beach so I was able to do my first themed photo session.  When I set this up I was so excited

and I couldn’t wait for the day to come round when little Katie would come to my studio.

After lots of feeding we were able to settle Katie very well for her session but she did something that really made me work… she LOVED to sleep with her tongue sticking out.  It was a very endearing look and a memory that will make them laugh in years to come (I know because my own daughter used to stick her tongue out in the wind and we lived on Anglesey where it was ALWAYS windy so she constantly had a lizard tongue 😛😛) However, as cute as the little tongue was we decided we didn’t want it in every photo as it would be nice to have some of Katie looking beautiful without her tongue out.

And we managed it.. We were able to poke it in just long enough to grab some peaceful photos before she put it back out.  It’s definitely made a funny session as we couldn’t stop laughing every time she’d poke it out, it was like she knew the camera was there and wanted to have some fun.

For this session I did it in two parts as Katie’s big sister was away so we did a family session at a later date and I’ll add the photos as soon as possible..
