I met Sophie while shooting Shenade and David's wedding back in July, and soon after the wedding she contacted me enquiring about newborn sessions. One of her closest friends was expecting, and she wanted to give Kay and her partner Steven a newborn session as a gift once the baby arrived. I of course thought that this was adorable and a sure sign of a great friendship! I excitedly awaited the news of the little one's arrival!
Early September came around and little Evie was born! Sophie was so excited to be coming along with me to watch the newborn session take place and we made lots of plans. However, nearer the date, Sophie had to drop out due to her shift pattern - she was gutted! Everything went ahead as normal up until the morning of the shoot, when I got a message from Sophie... She had managed to get the day off work!!! And, she was coming along to surprise Kay and Steven! It was such an amazing surprise for the couple when she turned up on their doorstep a few minutes after I arrived. Its really made the day even more special for them. We all had a lot of fun getting Evie off to sleep and helping pose her while I got some super cute shots. She was an angel through the entire shoot and we got some fab poses and expressions out of her.
So thank you Sophie for organising the whole thing, it really was a lot of fun! I hope to see you Kay, Steven and little Evie again in the future :)
