A maternity photo session is so much more than just photographing a baby bump. It is about capturing what won’t be any more so that you can travel back in time and feel what it was like to be pregnant or what it felt like to be “just” a couple. Rich and Neasa were about to welcome their first baby into their lives and wanted to be able to look back.

The two sessions took place in their home in Dublin: which is where they spent most of their time on those two occasions. This is where they brought their baby home and where she will grow up (at least for a few years). I believe “home” is the best location for a newborn session and even family sessions: it helps hugely in bringing back memories to life.

7 days after the birth, they were still both spending a lot of time looking at their baby, in awe that they were able to create such a beautiful creature. New fathers are also in awe of their partner, and it was really sweet watching Rich taking care of Neasa: making tea, preparing lunch and looking at her with so much love. (Not to say that he wasn’t already doing this before, he was!)

They chose to combine photographs from both sessions on a medium framed storyboard which now hangs in their kitchen, which means they see it every single day.
