The Nixons

April 2, 2013

I’ve known Wendy for about 9 months, so the whole time I’ve known her she’s been pregnant. It felt like the longest pregnancy ever, probably even more so for the gorgeous Wendy!

I was thrilled when Wendy asked me to come and photograph the latest addition to her family, Darcy. Little three-week old Darcy is so tiny and sweet, and his big sister, Chloe, is just crazy bonkers about him, as is the family pooch. Everyone just wants to be near him. Or on him.

I adore shooting families at this precious time, because I can feel a little piece of that newborn magic for the time I’m there….and then I get to go home with my nipples in tact and sleep more than three hours at a time. Win.

Wendy made having a newborn in the house look effortless, as she simply radiated love.

    How gorgeous! I wish you were around when my baby was born. I would have hired you in an instant. I’ll have to have another just for this purpose. Absolutely gorgeous. xx

    so beautiful. we have no photos of us when Nick was a newborn, and only a handful of him. I always said when we had another we’d get tons of pics, but we haven’t had another 🙁 They’re such special memories for a family to have, because they dont’ stay that small for long, and when you’re so sleep deprived, it’s hard to remember what it was like. Thanks for sharing. x

      Love a bit of 70’s backlighting…..I hope it turns into a little business. I really do enjoy it!
