It is with great excitement that Alex & I announce the birth of our daughter Arlette Rosalie Mary Dewar. Born on the 15th July, weighing 6 pounds 7.
As some of my lovely clients know, it was a rough pregnancy and our little one had a rocky start to this world, requiring a short stay in Special Care. Affectionately nicknamed “Diva”, Arlette already has us wrapped around her little finger and is slowly learning the demands of being a photographer’s daughter!
Ask any baby photographer and most will say, that posing and taking photographs of your own baby is not easy. I found it almost impossible! I started out with so many ideas that I wanted to do, dreamed up so many beautiful images while I was pregnant. Forgetting my own number one rule with newborns. THEY decide what images they want of themselves! So with this in mind I let Arlette practically posed herself, I just gently persuaded in some areas of course
I remain on Maternity leave, however we look forward to returning to the studio to continue capturing beautiful memories for our clients very soon! In the meantime, here is the start of many images – our dear Arlette in her first week xx
