I’d never been asked to do a bump to baby shoot before although I had photographed pregnancies and babies. When Carrie asked me to photograph her and her baby, this was the first time I was able to see a project through to the end. So you won’t be surprised that I wanted to take full advantage and create a sort of before and after effect where their her baby boy is the star of the show.
Working with Carrie on her maternity photos was so much fun. She had a lovely small bump and was happy to try out some different ideas… some of which worked wonderfully and others that need a bit of refining.
When Jackson arrived, he was a little lad and I met him at just 8 days old. He is such a beautiful, good little boy although he halted the session for a bit whilst he worked off a serious case of the hiccups. He is a real wriggler and it was tough to keep him swaddled but we managed to sooth him and get a good range of photos.
Have a look at some below.
