A tale of three babies...

Berkhamsted Photographers Rachel Powell and Ceri Besent specialise in Family and Newborn Photography across Hertfordshire and from their Tring based photography Studio.

If there is anything us Newborn Photographers love (more than newborn snuggles which are pretty damn hard to beat) it’s when those fresh little bundles toddle back into the studio, all grown up, for a visit. We love seeing how their personalities have evolved and whether they resemble those precious little babies that we cuddled to sleep and carefully posed.

Now I know we’re not supposed to have favourites, but sometimes a family walks through our studio door that we instantly adore. And this was exactly what happened back in February 2015 when the Walkers brought their first brand new bundle Zoe in for a newborn shoot. Back when Lightmonkey Photography was just Rachel and the business was in its first year.

Zoe rocked her newborn session (once we got her to sleep) and chatting to Mum Zoe and Dad Andrew over coffee was far too lovely to seem like work.

It was such a treat to capture Zoe smashing up her cake 12 months later and then doting over her baby brother Louis, when he arrived in September 2017. I can honestly say she was the most compliant two year old we have ever met. Then came Louis’ cake smash, which he tackled with a little more attitude than his sister!

It was such a lovely surprise when Kim got in touch in touch in June this year to book a Newborn Shoot for baby number 3. And gorgeous little Tess didn’t disappoint - with her big brother’s sleepiness and her big sister’s calm and curious nature she was a superstar and Rachel didn’t really want to give her back!

The proudest big sister and brother!

Possibly the cutest thing was watching Zoe and Louis with Tess. I’m pretty sure they are going to be the best big brother and sister and I can’t wait to watch them helping out their little sister at her cake smash next year!
