I can’t believe it’s been almost 3 months since I had my baby shower and was not so patiently waiting for my little baby boy’s arrival. “Baby G” is now 7 weeks old and once our little guy arrived we decided on the name Will Harris Goodall…but that’s another blog post yet to come!

Initially I was unsure about having a baby shower, the thought of a typical baby shower with games and baby themed decorations made me feel…well let’s just say they aren’t my thing. So my awesome mama (affectionally known as Nana Neesie or Nini for short) put on a bit of girly afternoon tea – no boys and no games! It was a great time to catch up with family and friends, eat cake and be merry because as we all know – a party without cake is just a meeting!

My amazing friend and super awesome photographer Rachel was kind enough to document the afternoon for me. Rachel has kinda become our unofficial family photographer since the baby shower she has also captured some beautiful images of myself and fiance Dan, some images I also CAN. NOT. WAIT. to share!

thank you to all the gorgeous and special women in my life!

When three become four there’s a distinct change in the family dynamic. Having photographed this gorgeous family when Harriet arrived a few years prior, it was just too exciting to see how much she had grown and how much she adored her baby brother Edward.

The thing I loved most about photographing these guys was seeing how different the two kids personalities were. Harriet was a little camera shy initially and Eddie was a super chilled  perfect little baby! Even though he was barely a week into his precious little life, he was so alert, taking it all in his stride then once he had enough just fell asleep.  Harriet was a typical toddler, cheeky and full of beans – the bubbles may have been used a form of bribery…I mean distraction…hehe You just wouldn’t have it any other way!

It’s really quite special being asked to capture a family in their own home, and luckily it’s what I love!
