What a privilege it was to photograph this beautiful naming ceremony, welcoming little M to the world. When Laura and James asked me to capture their wonderful day I was so honoured, and overjoyed to be working with this lovely family again. I first met Laura, James and baby M last year for their newborn session. They were such a joy to work with, filling the session with genuine laughter and ease and their special day was no different.
From the moment I arrived into their gorgeous garden, adorned with such thoughtful little touches, I was surrounded by laughter and joy. M was clearly with people he loves and who love him. He smiled, giggled and played with everyone, cuddled with his mummy and daddy and vowed to catch every bubble from the bubble machine!!
Together with their families, Laura and James hosted a heart warming ceremony, with wonderful readings from Laura's father, James' mother and M's guide parents. The celebrant, Philip Scott, a truly outstanding orator, lead the service with such enthusiasm and frivolity. Really, as I sit here now, I find myself still smiling at all the little touches, speeches, stories and readings that went into the day. Perfect.
Here are a few of the best from the day
