Newborn session with Alexis, Michael & Ripley - London Newborn Photography
Alexis and Michael hired me to document the birth of their daughter Ripley. We immediately connected as Alexis is a fellow photographer who specialises in interiors. I loved her quirky taste in fashion, design and photography. We met in East London for coffee one afternoon and spent many hours chatting and laughing together.
It was a long birth for Alexis ending in an emergency Caesarean she also has a very difficult first few weeks recovering and suffering a dangerous haemorrhage at home.
We decided that before seeing her birth images we would do a beautiful newborn rebirth session at home and create the beautiful environment that Alexis had wanted with the birth. These sessions can be very healing especially after a difficult birth. It gives the mother a chance to just sit and soak in the beauty of her new baby while I capture some precious and beautiful moments, They are very relaxed we have tea and often cake debrief the birth together and then take some photos.
This session was a lot of fun and I loved capturing Alexis in the bath having some skin to skin..
