Baby Finley in all his sleepy glory...

I captured Louise's pregnancy in the New Year and was delighted to go and see her and her husband John a month later when their teeny tiny newborn, Finley, had arrived. He was still all curled up, sleepy as anything, and such a bundle of sweetness when I met him. I love the wintery light that seeped through their house that morning, and the sense of total and utter calm in these pictures despite the fact they had a one week old and were finding their way as we all do. Finley is all the more precious because a year earlier, his big sister tragically passed away at just 4 days old. I feel truly honoured to have been able to capture this magical time for such a lovely lovely family and I can't wait to photograph them all again as he blossoms.
