The perfect follow up to the last post.  Holly and Paul invited me over to capture their son’s first bath and a typical afternoon with a newborn.
Very typical, my favourite photograph is the one where Holly fell asleep holding her gorgeous little boy whilst proud dad looks on.
This has to be the most realistic depiction of this time in any parent’s life.
We listened to records as he fed, drank tea while he fed, got lion kinged a few times, he bathed and slept and fed some more.
Paul is a musician and was in the first band I ever photographed, you can listen to his work here, so of course he had to play with his son in his arms.
A perfect afternoon.
