Gorgeous Phoebe and the Unicorn

[vc_row][vc_column][az_column_text]I was so privileged that Gemma & Dan allowed me to photograph their beautiful baby girl.   I can remember the day I got the telephone call from Gemma enquiring about a newborn photo shoot. How amazing was it that she contacted me. Gemma is a colourist specialist at The Retreat Salon in Farnham where I get my hair done. Although Gemma had never coloured my hair, I know who she was as she is always bubbly and friendly when I came to the salon.[/az_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][az_single_image image=”912″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][az_column_text]Phoebe was born just before Christmas and due to the Christmas break Gemma hadn’t organised a newborn shoot. I happened to have a space and Phoebe came to the studio at 20 days… normally after 10 days newborns become more alert so I advised Gemma it might take us a little longer to get Phoebe to sleep and settled into those sleepy positions. Wow how did little Phoebe prove me wrong! She was a little angel.  I love her photographs.

I did a bit of Google search on the meaning of a unicorn ‘a mythical creature, someone amazing who is hard to catch or simply a very rare find’ and ‘Unicorn just means perfect’ Little Phoebe is quite unique and I would agree just perfect.[/az_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][az_single_image image=”914″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][az_column_text]I think my favourite photographs of Phoebe are of her with the little green headband. She looks so content and such a beautiful little baby.[/az_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][az_single_image image=”915″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][az_single_image image=”916″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][az_column_text]And Gemma’s baby love story….[/az_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][az_single_image image=”917″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][az_column_text]

Sam and myself were a very young 18 when we met on a night out in Farnham. We moved in together after 6 months and 4 years later we saved to buy our own home. Sam eventually asked me to marry him New Year’s Eve after we had been together 10 years so I did want to wait any longer so got planning our wedding straight away.  We were married that September in Farnham St Andrew’s church.

We had been trying for a family for along time and had some help along the way.  Sam had gone away for a boys weekend and I did a test, but didn’t think I was pregnant … I was so shocked to see a positive result.  I thought I would wait until he got home to tell him the new…. 10 mins later I was FaceTiming him.  I couldn’t keep it in!! I swore him to secrecy… they boys can confirm he didn’t tell but he was in a good mood all weekend and had a few to many.  He was secret celebrating inside.

During my pregnancy, I was so sick from about 6 weeks till about 25 weeks.  We found out we were having a girl and were over the moon.

Deciding on a name was tough. I wanted Elsie the whole way but Sam wasn’t keen.  He loves phoebe but wanted Rose after his granny.   I thought I would convince him to go with Elsie when he see me in pain… which I did but I didn’t think Elsie was right when I looked at our precious girl Phoebe just suited her.

We treasured memories of being pregnant and spending last little weekends away together before are precious bubba arrived.

Phoebe arrived a day late I got induced on her due date as they were concerned that she stopped growing.

I was so emotional when I first got to see my baby, we finally had our little family she was a beauty and tiny

We are both loving being a Mummy and Daddy and she is so lovely but getting out of the house on time has been a shock …all the stuff but she so worth it.

I really wanted newborn pictures taken as I wanted to capture those early days Phoebe changes so much every moment is precious.

Jennifer was amazing with phoebe and so chilled got her in some great positions I couldn’t wait to see the final products but I was blown away they were all amazing I loved every single picture x
