I’m so proud to present my last family and newborn shoot of 2017. This is baby Arthur’s loving family Lucy, Glen, brother Albert and sister Poppy and Adeline, captured by me Kika Mitchell Chelmsford photographer. I hope you enjoy some of the precious photographs from the gallery “Introducing Arthur”.
“We didn’t realise we were making memories, we just knew we were having fun” AA Milne
This shoot for my dear friends Lucy and Glen was brilliant. We combined a lifestyle family shoot with a newborn shoot, which was great value for the family. I’ve photographed all of his siblings, and a Baptism so this really was an honour for me to add this to my list for them.
Baby Arthur really did hit the jackpot with this bunch, he will be so well looked after. And he was in such a rush to meet his big brother and sisters he arrived 4 weeks early. He’s perfect in every way and the most perfect gift for this Christmas.
Lucy has a wall of fame, and luckily for me lots of my images feature on this wall. It’s on the stairs so all the children get used to seeing their family photographs every single day, several times a day.
Therefore each day they are constantly reminded of their good times as a family and where they belong. How precious and reassuring must that be for them.
People always tell me they must book a shoot, they’ve been meaning to for years but put it off. However, they find it reassuring that they have hundreds of photos on their phone. At this point I have to remind them that you can’t put a USB on your wall in a frame.
We need prints to preserve our memories, fact!
One last thing, why not take a look at this little Animoto I created for Lucy and Glen as part of their photography collection. Hit the play arrow icon, now grab a tissue, you’ll blub, don’t say I didn’t warn you.
Bye see you on the other side x
