Melissa, Scott and Ivy – 4 weeks

Baby Ivy – 4 Weeks Old

 It was the first time I had met with Melissa and Scott. It was at this first meeting that I photographed their fundraiser. “Rosa’s Room Memory Walk for Tommy’s”. This photo session was in honour of their daughters first birthday, who was stillborn. Tommy’s is a charity funding research into the cause of miscarriages, stillbirth and premature birth. At the time of the event, Melissa & Scott were pregnant with their second daughter and booked their newborn session with me.

It’s such a happy yet stressful time being pregnant with a child after losing a baby. You can never truly relax as you are constantly worried that it could happen again.

Little Ivy was born 5 1/2 weeks early. Thank goodness she was perfect. A precautionary measure meant Ivy had to stay in the hospital for four weeks to allow her to gain weight.

Mum & Dad were content.

Ivy came to her newborn session with her mum and dad. Mum & Dad had a glow of contentedness about them. They sat, a couple of feet away, watching and enjoying the whole experience of their daughter whilst being photographed by me.

Facebook Review

Here is a comment by Scott that he put on Facebook –

“Fantastic photo session with Kelly Shaw Photography! The photos are amazing! You don’t appreciate the skill it takes until you witness it for yourself! To dress our little Ivy in several different outfits without even waking her! The baby whisperer.”

Sleeping Beauty

Ivy slept happily throughout her session. As Scott said above, I was able to change her position and outfits without disturbing her peaceful sleep. She even gave me a slight smile.

It is nice to include parents having family pictures taken. This family of two have now grown into a beautiful family of three.

Thank you, Melissa & Scott, for choosing me to mark such a momentous time in your family’s story.
