Family photography session in Hitchin

I saw this little one in the park in Hitchin yesterday with her mummy Nadia – and it was so great to see them! It reminded me of their family photography session in Hitchin, they had with me way back in the Autumn.  It was such a special session, just after they had moved into their new family home. So I wanted to share the images today on the blog.  When I saw them in the park yesterday, on the swings, enjoying time together, it struck me how happy I was that they had their photoshoot, and how lucky I am to get to photograph families as they grow.  I couldn’t believe how the little one has grown – already had her first birthday and is almost walking which means she’ll be off on the adventure to explore the world and things won’t quite be the same.  When I see the families I photograph after a few months, it brings it home to me, just how time is fleeting, and how they grow so quickly.  Every stage is amazing, I just wish you could bottle it up and keep those moments, at the same time as being excited to see what tomorrow brings…

People often say to me they are thinking of booking a shoot with me.  And then they never quite get round to it.  It’s not that they have changed their mind, it’s just that life is so flippin’ busy these days, a shoot isn’t an essential, so it’s so easy to just push it to the back of the to do list.  I am guilty of this myself to be honest, but it’s one of those things I am so glad I have had photographs taken of my little family already, and I will be booking another one in now too!  I remember I kept wanting to get my little boy’s feet imprinted at the paint your own pots place in Hitchin. Being a new mummy, a trip out like that was a bit of a mission and I kept putting it off.  Eventually when he was 6 weeks old I did it, feeling sad I’d left it so long as I’d wanted to do it when he was first newborn.  6 weeks feels a long time when they first arrive! But it didn’t matter, he will be 2 in July, and that little tile with his tiny feet imprinted is one of the most precious things I own.  His feet are huge in comparison now, how was he ever that tiny? But if I look at it from the other side – really he’s only a little size 4- he has so much growing to do!  So whenever you have your family photographed together, it’s always a good time!

These moments are ones that you will want to remember.   When you held them close, and breathed in their baby smell.  When you were working out who you are as parents and as their personality began to grow and those skills that you now take for granted were just the most amazing developments each day.  When the days were long, the nights longer but the years were short.  At home sessions last for a morning or afternoon and fit in around you and your children – sessions are super laidback, capturing family life, the in between, every day moments.  So if you’re thinking of booking a shoot in, do it now, because tomorrow those feet won’t be quite as tiny…

These guys actually split their session into 2 parts – a little while at home together as three, and then later on invited grandparents, aunty and uncle along the little cousins over for coffee,cake and some playtime, such a wonderful idea!
