Marnie, Andre & Baby Lyla- In home newborn/lifestyle session

October 22, 2021

Marnie’s beautiful pregnant belly was the first maternity session that I captured after launching Bump & Beyond. Fast forward a month or so, and I was lucky enough to be invited into Marnie & Andre’s home to document their 9 day old baby girl, Lyla Grace.

I feel so privileged to have been trusted with such a huge responsibility. How lucky am I?!

I vaguely remember those first couple of weeks with a newborn- Your world has been turned upside down and you are navigating your new role as parents, all whilst battling sleep deprivation and the biggest hormonal drop that a human will ever experience in such a short amount of time. But you’re also happier than you have ever been. It’s an emotional and physical roller coaster.

I know that it may seem overwhelming to wash and dry your hair, put some make up and a dress on, but I promise you it’ll be worth it. These memories of your newly formed or newly expanded family in the comfort of your own home will be ones that are forever treasured and looked back on with an unmeasurable amount of love and joy.

Thank you Marnie for trusting me. Baby Lyla is simply perfect.
