I originally shared this over on Facebook and Instagram as the week flew away with me but I’ve decided to share it here too, to document it to be able to read back on in years to come. Here is the aftermath of Kadie’s unplanned home birth. (more…)
On Sunday afternoon we invited Nessa Robinson, a lifestyle and portrait photographer from Dublin into our home to capture some newborn photos of Kadie.
Ideally these kind of shoots are recommended for babies between 6-10 days old. Kadie is six weeks old and alot more active and alert than a squishy week old baby so I’m amazed how stunning the photo’s turned out.
One of the things I loved about the newborn shoot was that Nessa comes to your home. It took away the stress of heading to a studio with the kids, something that can be very overwhelming and the main reason why I have never had newborn portraits done before.
Meet Kadie Belle, born on the 20th of August at 11.22am at home weighing 7lbs 10oz. I know most of you are dying to hear how it all happened and I’ve tried to write about it but every time I take out the laptop I get very emotional. It wasn’t the birth experience I anticipated and even though she arrived safe, it was scary and I’m just not ready to start talking about it yet.
