I was delighted when Marina and Matthew got in touch to tell me the wonderful news about their family. We met when I photographed their wedding in 2008, and it was wonderful to catch up with them again and find out what they had been up to with their lives in the years since we saw them last.
This is Freddie. He is happy and perfect, and has completely captured his mommy and daddy’s hearts. He is their little miracle of life, and they are so glad he’s here.
Marina’s mother knitted the softest little baby hat, sweater and socks for Freddie. The cream colour of the wool was selected even before Marina and Matthew knew they were having a boy, and it really suits him. It is so special when you have hand made gifts from family, so I always make a point to check to see if parents have anything they would like to feature in the images. Now they will have a beautiful record of the outfit when Freddie has long outgrown it, and they have forgotten how small he once was.
