Introducing... Axel William Douglas Knight
At only 8 days new, Axel was an absolute trooper during his session. Staying (mostly) asleep, while we dressed him up, changed backgrounds, and had lots of cuddles.
Axel's mum sourced this amazing crocheted outfits, and even Storm the dog was not safe when it came to the dress ups.
Depending on what our clients want, we will incorporate some posed newborn portraits, with some more lifestyle/documentary style images, and possibly some quirky ones like these. Axel decided to wake up a bit more towards the end of the session, and more than any other baby I've had the pleasure to photograph, he seemed to just stare straight down the lens. The image on the left; that's my favourite from the session ;)
And lastly, we headed outside for some family portraits. The way these two look at each other, and the way they both look at Axel is beautiful to witness, and I'm honoured that they chose me to capture it.
