Photography: Newborn Shoot with Caroline Quick Photography

I absolutely LOVE these newborn images from Caroline Quick Photography! 

I love seeing those moments between parents and their new baby, and I especially love the interaction between Grandparents and their new grandchild. It's just absolutely gorgeous. 

We have newborn photographs hanging on our wall of both Miss S and Mister L and they are my favourites of all the photographs we have up. They have both changed so much since then, and it's almost impossible to remember those newborn moments now. They look so peaceful and so fragile, and I love looking back and them and seeing how far my two babies have come. 

The baby stage seems to be both so short and so long all at the same time. As Gary is fond of telling me, the days are long but the years are short, and I couldn't agree more. I find some days so hard with babies, particularly when the newborn sleep deprivation sets in at about week six. It's hard to remember that time at all, it passes in a sleepy blur. So I'm so glad we managed to have some photographs taken, to make sure we can look back and relive all the good bits again!

"I met Sam when she first moved into our street almost 4 years ago and we have been friends ever since. She and her husband Richard already had two children Olivia and Will. As with many families here, they soon settled into the great life that is Dubai and decided to complete their family with just one more. Lincoln is just the cutest little boy and a carbon copy of his elder siblings. It was so lovely to see Sam enjoying every minute of her last pregnancy and now Lincoln is here she is loving every minute with him and the fact that she has the time to spend with him watching him grow and change every day.

It’s this that I love to capture. The pure joy and wonder of creating another life, the moments where you can do nothing but just stare at them as you feed them or as they sleep and the sheer joy that it brings to other siblings which completes your family.  These moments can be chaotic but are so precious and its such a gift to be able to freeze these moments in time for families to enjoy for years to come".
